Safety Features to Consider for Your Home...

Home is where you’re supposed to feel safe, so you’ll need a little more than locked windows and doors to ensure the security of your family and belongings. There are some safety features you should consider when thinking about what you should arm your home with, and here are some of them. Indoor and outdoor security cameras You can monitor what goes on inside your house or outside with security cameras you can control and see from your phone. If you hear a noise outside in the middle of the night, or wake up and something from your backyard is missing, you can go back and review security camera footage to see if it was an animal or someone who was causing the disturbance. Key fobs Much like you can unlock your car with a key fob, you can turn your security system on and off with something small that attaches to your keys. Key fobs can also be used as a panic button if there’s an emergency, and can control your lights to scare off any potential predators you may come across outside. You can make entrance into your house so much easier and avoid any false alarms you may cause by forgetting to disarm your security system. Glass break sensors There are security devices that can detect the sound of glass breaking, so if someone tries to break into your house, or something else has damaged your window, the alarm will go off. Glass break sensors can also be suited to reduce false alarms by being paired with the ability to detect the force being applied to the glass. Temperature and water sensors If you keep valuable and sensitive artwork or electronics in your home, you might want to consider a temperature...

Finding Capable Coaching for Technology Sales Staff Sep04

Finding Capable Coaching for Technology Sales Staff...

Businesses always seem to be perfectly willing to put up with sales managers who consistently are bad guys. Then, as if that isn’t bad enough, businesses are also willing to retain field sales people who consistently fail to achieve performance goals and sales projections. Stay Nimble Business doesn’t lead, business follows economic cycles. As a result, business gets sales people-bloated during good times and goes sales people-lean during tough times. Why? It is because when times are good, business gets greedy and tries to grab every dollar it can by sending too many people after what ultimately turns out to be too few opportunities. When the next economic slowdown occurs, business often panics and cuts back. When the inevitable recovery comes along, business gets caught flat-footed and winds up throwing too few people at too many opportunities, creating a costly cycle that plays havoc with sales, profits, and people’s lives. Stay Motivated When business loses, it refuses to accept responsibility for its own failures. Instead of looking within to make necessary changes and improvements, business tends to blame outside forces including ad agencies, competitors, the government, even customers, for its problems. Whenever a good sales team loses a client or sale, it doesn’t waste time playing the blame-game. Good sales people take immediate responsibility for their failures. Nothing, not politics, money, and/or relationships, changes a good sales person’s motivation to achieve defined performance. Failure to perform causes the team to make immediate changes in management, coaches, workers, training, or whatever else it takes to turn the team around. Be Serious Business bounces from loss to win to loss because it is unwilling or unable to invest the resources necessary to train sales professionals to perform at the top of their sales games.

Mulch– better than bare ground but still affordable, some smaller play areas use mulch to cover the ground, but it can cause problems during rains as it can wash away and it will eventually mix into the ground. Rubber- rubber can be used as an outdoor play area foundation by using either ground up rubber mulch chips or rubber mats that cover the play area and proved extra cushion for trips and falls. Sand– using sand is popular because it is fairly affordable and also doubles as a play item in and of itself because kids love digging and playing the in the sand.
