cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet Wendy Yanovitch, vice president of member services for Yahoo. He said today that
michael kors handbags outlet he believes the sender got his email address from his posts to the "alt.2600" newsgroup,
Michael Kors handbags outlet which discusses hacking and technology issues."My Yahoo account was frozen for a few days," Killingbeck said. "I’ve had that account for more than six months, and
Michael Kors handbags this is the first time I didn’t have access."He said tech support was able to restore his account quickly once he alerted them about the problem.Overall, email threats are "not very widespread," Yanovitch said today.

cheap michael kors mail service and the email threat came from AOL, Yanovitch said: "We’re concerned with maintaining an open and friendly environment," and the firm would cooperate with any law enforcement investigation.

The bulk of people who use our service want to do good things."Killingbeck, who does not have children, said he was angered by the email message, but not frightened by it."I knew it was probably some 12 year old acting their age," he said. But "Something like this gives the Net a bad name."Articles Connexes:

Growing Your
fake oakleys Retail Store Business

One resource that could help your retail business prosper in both good times and bad is Bob Philbin’s new book "The Retail Doctor Guide to Growing Your Business: A Step by Step Approach to Quickly Diagnose, Treat, and Cure." It is a must read for all retail storeowners looking for solutions to improve the performance of their retail business.

If your business is not performing according to your expectations, or even if you just want to see it grow even more, Philbin’s book helps you examine the important elements that contribute to the success of a retail business.

More importantly, the book offers solutions, best practices tips and
cheap oakley sunglasses advice based on Philbin years of experience consulting with other retail stores and helping them solve their problems. Even if your retail store is doing well, the book is full of ideas and tips on how you can further improve the sales and profitability of your business.

Some of the recommendations are quite tough, even harsh. And rightly so, especially if your business is on the downhill, or worse, in the gutter. If your retail business has never turned a profit, or losses keep piling up, maybe tough love is what your business really needs. You need to zero in on the problems in order to provide a workable solution, tough it may be. You need to address the problems head on, including firing the dependable but bitter Betty who seems to attract a lot of problems and turn off customers and fellow employees.

The strength of the book lies in its approach to understanding the common problems of a retail business. The book starts with a chapter on understanding your financials, and then looks at the setup and configuration of your store. He proceeds to focus next on your employees which he calls "your most important asset" from the hiring process, training and coaching, and how they sell. Only after you’d cleaned up your mistakes internally does Philbin delve into the marketing.

Importance of Knowing Your Financials

Many small business
fake oakleys owners make the mistake of failing to understand their financial statements and what the numbers really say. But how can you know what’s wrong with your business if you do
fake oakley sunglasses not know and understand your financial statements? Don’t be like many of them, who operate their retail stores based on what they think is right, not what their numbers are telling
cheap oakleys them they should do. If your retail business is not making money, as it should, you should look at how everything is contributing to your profitability. Don’t just focus on trying to
oakleys sunglasses increase sales, because the strategies you use might end up hurting your profits. Take one of his suggestions:

"Limit the discounting. Without a plan, you’ll do anything to get money in. I know one toy
wholesale cheap oakley sunglasses storeowner using Twitter tells her followers they’ll get 30 percent off if they come in that day! What she doesn’t realize is how she is robbing herself of profits to pay the bills."

How Your Store Looks is Critical to its Success

The book then focuses on the look and design the store, explaining how merchandising placement, maintenance, and flow of movement are important to a successful store. Great displays help build sales because they stop customers in their tracks and persuade them to select an item they hadn’t necessarily considered. Conversely, sloppy or poorly coordinated displays rob your store
cheap oakleys of its bility to make additional profit.

He proceeds to give tips on how to select the merchandise to display, the types of displays to consider, how to merchandise your store and even common merchandising don’ts. The ways you present your store and the items you sell have a huge impact on your sales.

What should you not do? For starters, avoid hiring a man carrying a big sign outside your store as it makes you look unsuccessful. As Phibbs wrote,

"Nothing appears more desperate than a person standing on the sidewalk holding a red arrow pointing to your store. Though it may get you attention, it just makes people think: "poor guy."

If you are running an online store, or thinking of opening your own retail store, "The Retail Doctor’s Guide to Growing Your Business" is just what you need. It is one of the best small business retail books that I’ve read in a long time It is full of common sense advice that could save you tons of money. Or perhaps even your business.Articles Connexes:

Heirloom Decorating

September 20, 2008 By Rachel Paxton Leave a CommentI love to surround myself with things from the past. To me doesn necessarily mean something really old, because memories are always in the making, and displaying a family keepsake can be treasured whether it from last year or fifty years ago.It easy to tastefully decorate your home with family heirlooms. Why not put them on display rather than locking them away?I have many crocheted afghans that started taking up a lot of storage space. When we moved to our new home we had room for
oakley sunglasses replica our cedar chest off to one side of the living room and I filled the chest with all of the blankets. This also keeps them from being scattered all over the living room.
cheap oakleys We take one out at a time and just fold it up and put it back in the cedar chest when we done using it.I love to decorate with family photos. Our home has a long hallway where I can display a lot of photographs. Instead of randomly arranging pictures I decided to go with themes. I bought a large collage picture fame
fake oakleys cheap and arranged all of our family camping photos
wholesale oakleys in it. Another smaller collage displays pictures of our daughter opening up her
fake oakley sunglasses cheap presents at Christmas throughout the years. My, how she grown!I also scattered picture frames throughout our home. Black and white photos of generations past
oakleys sunglasses are displayed on the piano and china hutch. I don know about you, but I love looking at other people family photos. Ours are definitely a topic of conversation for visiting guests.I love needlework. I have on display needlework that was done by my mother, my
oakley sunglasses replica mother in law, and myself, and these masterpieces make a great addition to any room of the home. I partial myself to wedding samplers. It doesn seem like many people take the time to make these anymore. I made one for my husband and myself that I hope to someday pass on to my children. Birth samplers are also really great and something your children
fake cheap oakley sunglasses will surely cherish someday. The counted cross stitch project I currently working on will probably take me 5 years to complete, but someday it will grace the wall above our piano.I like to incorporate children artwork wherever possible. My favorite is a poem my daughter wrote and illustrated. One year she made several and gave them away as Christmas gifts to family members.Our family has a lot of books that have been handed down as many as four generations. Those books are displayed on shelves in our entertainment center in the living room. My heirloom cookbooks I keep in a small bookshelf between the kitchen and the dining room. Instead of just filling the shelves with cookbooks, I alternated shelves, arranging my favorite knick knacks in between.One heirloom I haven found a place for are hand embroidered tea towels that have been in our family for many years. I read that you can make them into kitchen curtains. I going to have to give that a try!Look through your family treasures and see what you can dig up. You never know what you might find a flower your grandmother dried and framed! And remember, it never too late to create new family heirlooms. Your family will treasure them someday.Articles Connexes:
