Achievment’s


A2Z-BADGE [2016]

As this year proceeds she is  reminded of the achievements that she has made throughout this year have made her realize that things happen for a reason. She may not understand at the moment why things are not going my way. However, you have to take things in with a grain of salt. Sometimes we always do not understand why things happen and we think that the world is coming down all at once. Sometimes it does come down all at once and there is nothing that you can do but work through the ups and downs of your life.

Eventually, things come together when they should and then there is nothing left but for you to live your life the way that you want. Sometimes, we reflect on the things that we have been through that have brought us to this point in our life. These things that happen make you realize that life is worth the wait. Even though things may look dull from time to time you have to work through the hardest parts of your life to make it to where you want to be.

That means that you have to work twice as hard to get the things that you want out of your life. Even if that means that you do not get to see your family quite as much as you would like. In the end everything that you do in your life you can always count on it being worth the wait. You are an influence to your children and to the people that you are around when you show them that you are willing to go the extra mile to get the things that you want out of life.

You cannot take things for granted, and you have to appreciate the things that you have in order to make it in the world. If you do not appreciate the things that you have and are not grateful for the things that you work so hard for then you will never have anything in your life that is worth anything. She has worked hard for everything that she has in her life and she has accomplished so much throughout her life in the past ten years.

Some of the accomplishments in her life is that she graduated college with a B average in all her degree’s. She has finally got the job that she went to college for and put her skills to the test. Throughout, the process there are pitfalls, and obstacles that she will face throughout the process. However, in the end it is all worth the time and effort that she is putting in to the job at hand. She has homeschooled her children for the last five years, and one of the children will be graduating next year.

Life sends so many things your way and you have to work through them in order to get the desired result. You cannot listen to other people or let them bring you down because you are working towards the things that you want out of your life. When you are happy with the things that are going on in your life then all you need to worry about is the things that will make you happy and successful in the world. Instead of being a follower  be the leader and show people that you have what it takes to achieve everything that you want out of life.

People seem to think  that you need friends to survive in the world. Well she is one of the exceptions because she does not need friends to make her world go round. She has her family and that is all that she needs to make her world go round and round. With three teenager’s in the house there is no  room for anything else but family. She does not need to go out and party with friends just so they can stab her in the back and make fun of her. She does not need to go spend time at other people’s house or have parties of her own.

Just when you think that things cannot get any better something always happens to make that change your mind. Living for the moment is not something that you do when you have plans for the future. Making sure that you can survive anything that comes your way is the most important thing. Being self-sufficient is something that everyone should work on throughout their life because it may come in handy one day.

An amazing woman

mandi

Mandi Gardner was a waitress at the Waffle House
in Concord, North Carolina for 11 years and one of
her regulars was a man named Mike Paradalis,
a veteran who served in the Air Force.

The last time she saw him she locked her keys in her
car and he helped her unlock the car. On April 10 he
had a heart attack and died alone in his van.

For around 14 days nobody claimed his body at the
NorthEast Medical Center and it appeared nobody
wanted to claim the body, except for Mandi.

She told the local news “there’s no memorial, no
headstone, no goodbye, nothing for someone to track
down and find”. So she started a fundraiser to raise
the money needed to claim his body and give him a
decent burial.

People came forward with money and the information
that his funeral might be provided for free…

Success in the world


3) What factors might allow a brand a potentially long life? What roles might product functionality and product design have on brand success? What advantages might a small business have in developing a branding strategy over a large business? What disadvantages?

The factor is which might allow a brand a potentially longer life within the market would be quality, customer satisfaction, and the cost of the product. If the product that the company is marketing is functional and is top notch with no mistakes the success of this product would be beneficial to the company. One of the things that the business has to look for is whether or not a competitor is selling the product for a cheaper price. Although spending less does not guarantee that the product will work. The hope is to make sure that the consumer will purchase this product again from your establishment. In any business the success of a product depends on consumer satisfaction.

Something else that the business or company needs to look at during the marketing process is the brand of product must be taken into account and that there will be different outcomes to the end result of the product. Small business may have an advantage with developing strategies over the larger businesses because they have more room to experiment with the product. When a business starts out on a clean slate they are able to see what they can perfect about the product to entice customer’s to purchase their products over and over.

The News That Interests Me Most


Sunday News after the Passing

I like to read the front page, and then work my way through the paper to the comics. The comics are the best part of the paper. Many of the articles that are in the newspaper are interesting to read. But I live in a small town so the articles are short and to the point. The one section of the paper that I do not care too much about is Sports. About the only thing that I like to watch with my husband is the UFC. I love to watch a good fight.

It is amazing what people will buy in this world. They will make millions on this product. I enjoyed watching this because it is funny. I would not want to hear this thing every time that I walked into a room. It is probably from China like everything else in this world.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Marketing Plan


By having an effective marketing plan that is influenced by the customer’s and the wants or needs of those customer’s. The importance of customer feedback is something that is very important to any and all business’s. To get the right feedback about the products or services that are offered within that business. Designing products are made with the consumer in mind because the product is what the customer is asking for. Marketing the product or service will influence the consumer to buy the product and that is what the business is shooting for. The consumer’s have to have faith in the products that they buy or they will not purchase them. If the product or service does not meet the consumer’s needs they will find it somewhere else. Positioning the product is another important factor that must be taken into consideration in order to maximize the profit of those products or services. Once the target market and motives are identified the effective marketing plan can influence the consumer’s that purchase the products or services. Earning the customer’s trust is the key issue when building a solid foundation of products or services that are offered to the consumer. Without an effective marketing plan the product or service could not be profitable to the company.

Social Responsibility


1372104387851

All business’s have a social responsibility to their employee, executives, Board of Director’s, and stockholder’s. The business is also held accounted for the customer’s, suppliers, creditors, governments, unions, competitors, and the public as well. Everything that is done within the world today has channels to run through. An excellent example for this would be the company that I am working for now. Ruby Tuesday’s is known to be a bar and grill where customer’s can come to have a good time and enjoy their dinner or watch the games that happen to be playing that day. Ruby Tuesday’s is coming up to the gaming season but in the process they have made some changes to what type of image they want to set. Furthermore, if the company did not set standards they would not make a profit and would not keep customers if they do not live up to the promise that they make to the customers. Today I was serving an older couple and before they left, the woman said that she was very pleased with her experience with us today. She said that it was nice to go out and have a nice dining experience instead of the fast food. The whole point of being in business is to make an impact on the customer’s that come into your establishment. Finding out what your customers like and dislike is a great tool to understanding what they expect when shopping in your business. The mission statement of a company shows the customers that they are ready and willing to make them happy no matter what. “Social responsibility is a critical consideration for a company’s strategic decision makers since the mission statement must express how the company intends to contribute to the societies that sustain it” (Pearce & Robinson, 2004).

Where Has America Gone?


Amen! You know just about everything that you see on television has something or all of these things in the outlining of their message to the consumer’s. What is the world coming to? I do not understand the way people think about the world that we live in. They think that everything is fine and this is what our children are learning about. This is why I restrict television in my home because my children do not need to see some of these things that they show on television. They need to know the important things and nothing else.

It seems one can hardly watch television anymore without the bombardment of profanity, sexual content, violence, and wizardry of some sort –and that’s just the commercials! Fifty years ago such immoral content would have been considered too scandalous to be aired on live TV! Yet, today, such programs are not only watched, but promoted and encouraged. Where has America gone?!

Competitive Advantage


Within this paper, I will elaborate on the strengths of the aquaponic greenhouse business to make the business a success, by addressing the actions the business will take to recover from the weaknesses that the business will encounter. By describing the ways that the business can take with the current opportunities and create more opportunities for the business to grow, and identify threats and the plan for monitoring these threats within the business. Furthermore, I will discuss the way flexibility plays a role in business.

The outlining strategies that will be essential to gain and sustain a competitive advantage in the aquaponic greenhouse would include value where I would evaluate the resources and capabilities of the business. The value of Ponder Hill Aquaponic Greenhouse business will provide value to the changing trends concerning customers. In describing rarity within the aquaponic greenhouse is to have a different variety of products which are not the same as the leading competitor’s within the area. However, in discussing imitability that consists of imitating another business that has the same products or strategies in place to see if they will be compatible with the strategic plans that the business has put in place for the business.

In discussing the strengths of the aquaponic systems by building  in a location that would be beneficial to the business so that customers would be able to access the products of the business. Picking the right location for the business is something that will determine the strength of the business. If a customer does  not have access to your business they are not going to spend  money within your establishment. Being accessible and easy to find is one strength that this business will have because the business will not be that hard to find. If you are not in the right location the customers are not going to find the business.

Some of the actions that will be taken  to address the weaknesses of the aquaponic greenhouse business is to understand how the system works within the community by learning what I can about the business before diving right into it. For example, a friend who I know has already started working on his  investment of building an aquaponic greenhouse, and  it is not going so well at this point in the project. Learning about the different types of strategies and competitive advantages that the business would have can provide some interesting facts about the business and whether or not it will be a success. Another weakness that will have to overcome would be the financial end of the business. Acquiring the finances to put into the business takes time to collect and starting out without the help of investor’s, or loans. Working  by overcoming the obstacles and having a plan in place will allow the business to be a success.

In describing ways to take advantage of the current opportunities is to provide consumer’s the choice of buying organic produce, and is environmentally safe for consumption. Opportunities may arise when the products and services can be offered in different locations or at different times. Some of the opportunities may arise unexpectedly, and some may be anticipated. In finding opportunities that will provide the business with a chance to improve the performance  and the competitive advantage

Furthermore, Some of the threats that would be harmful to the business is an electrical failure, or pipe blockage that could result in a complete loss of all fish within the business. This would also result in spending more money on replenishing the fish that was lost. The aquaponic greenhouse can have multiple single points of failure that would result in the business being unsuccessful so addressing these risks or threats upon surfacing would be beneficial to the business and their success. One way to avoid this is to have a backup generator just in case there was an electrical failure, and to ensure that the pipes are flowing smoothly throughout the greenhouse.

In conclusion, by evaluating the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats will help understand how the aquaponic greenhouse can sustain a competitive advantage over the competitor’s in the surrounding area. By offering fresh organic produce to the consumer’s, with easy access to the products and services that Ponder Hill Enterprises offers to the customer. Furthermore, this paper elaborated on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats, and flexibility of the business. Identified a potential risk and the role that it plays within the strategy that is in place.
