Chris Burch Advises The Business Owner To Set The Tone March 29, 2017

One of the best things to do with employees is to set the tone early on in the relationship. Some people need to know what is expected of them. For one thing, leaving people to guess is one of the worst things a business owner could do because it takes up a lot of energy in order to figure out what is expected. Also, inconsistent people are not going to get respect, especially from experienced workers. This is one of the reasons that one has to not only set the tone, but maintain the tone throughout the career of the individual.


Chris Burch is really good about setting the tone with his employees. For one thing, he writes a lot. He understands that it is important for writers to set the tone of the story they are going to write and make an effort to be consistent with the tone. One thing that does not help is if one is reading something that is all over the place. The same applies to management and business running. A leader that is all over the place is only going to stress his workers out. This is another reason that Chris Burch makes sure that the tone is set in his business.


One thing that a business owner does not want to do is stress out his employees. At some point, the employee is going to check out and his work performance is going to suffer. Job burnout is a common issue that is best avoided. Therefore, it is important for the business owner to make sure that a little bit of care is given to the employees so that they will be more willing to do their job. Structure and honesty is one of the best things to give an employee of the business.

It will provide analysis and molecular sequencing to UChicago’s breast cancer specialists to come up with effective treatment plans for cancer patients.

How EOS Succeeded in a Crowded Market March 16, 2017

EOS has emerged in a short period as a major player in the lip balm market. How they were able to do so was recently highlighted in an article in Fast Company.

The success of EOS is at least partially based on the co-founders of the company spotting an industry that provided a significant opportunity, and then designing a product that appealed to customer’s tastes.

The opportunity in the lip balm market was a result of the existing companies in the industry resting on their laurels and not designing a better product that appealed to the tastes of the typical consumer today. Customers increasingly were looking for more varied in their lip balms and were trying to obtain lip balm blends that had flavors that were more enjoyable to use than the standard flavors such as cherry and medicinal that were issued by the existing competitors in the market such as Chapstick, Blistex, and Carmax. EOS created fun and unique blends such as Vanilla Mint and Blackberry nectar which captured the tastes and preferences of the feme shoppers who primarily bought lip balm. They used all-natural and organic ingredients which removed the artificial taste of existing lip balms and provided better protection for customers.

To create a product that stood up to possible competitive pressure, EOS had their production machinery custom designed to make it harder for their competition to copy their products. EOS created an orb shaped application case that provided for a sanitary application of lip balm in a thick application that proved that EOS’ full name, the Evolution of Smooth, is no misnomer.

Finally, EOS concentrated on developing their distribution network and forged relationships with many large retailers and online stores to distribute their product such as eBay, Walgreens, Amazon, Target, and Walmart. This strategy paid off and EOS has emerged as one of the major players in the lip balm market.

Robin Williams Dies as his Legacy Lives On March 7, 2017


Robin Williams, one of the greatest comedians of the century and a famous ENFP, passed away on August 11, 2013. His death was ruled a suicide, and it was a sad end to a man who brought decades of joy to the world. Few people knew at the time that Mr. Williams suffered from severe depression and anxiety. He also had a recent diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease, which he kept private until his death.


His memorial service, called the “Celebration of Life”, was held some six weeks after his passing. Billy Crystal opened the service at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco. According to his closest family and friends, he would want to be remembered with laughter rather than tears. There were plenty of both during the “Celebration of Life”, as his family and fellow comedians spoke from the heart about this incredible man.


Williams’ first most notable role was as the loveable alien, Mork in the hit series “Mork and Mindy”. He played the role for four seasons and became more and more popular as the years rolled by. He starred in such films as “Good Will Hunting”, “Good Morning Vietnam”, and “Mrs. Doubtfire”.


It seems his life, even at the age of 63, was cut incredibly short upon his entry to the celebrity morgue. His fellow celebrities have often lived far longer; for instance, Mel Brooks, Don Rickles, and Sidney Poitier are all currently 90-years old and going strong. It is amazing and it also makes many people sad to know that there is a chance that all of these brilliant celebrities will be gone in the next ten years.
