If you were to sit down and talk with any employee at Talk Fusion you would likely get to the same sentiment after a short conversation. Talk Fusion fully believes in building a business that can straight up just help people. Talk Fusion was founded by CEO Bob Reina back in 2007 and the man behind the creation of the company is still on board and leading them into the future. Reina knows how important it is to be a leader both within the office and outside of it and that is, perhaps, the fuel that drives the Talk Fusion philanthropy machine.
You don’t have to be a marketing expert to understand that giving back to the community can lead to returns in many different ways. But you don’t have to be a cynic, either. Talk Fusion’s culture has been built around the giving nature of CEO Bob Reina. Reina has made philanthropy one of the core structures that holds up the Talk Fusion infrastructure. Reina knows that great power is beholden to even greater responsibility and that is why we are so excited to talk about the new Talk Fusion Charity account.
The Talk Fusion charity account is virtually identical to the most popular Talk Fusion account: the premium monthly plan. The charity account comes stocked with all of the big hitters in the Talk Fusion video marketing database: Live Meetings, Video Chat, Video Email and more. The big wrinkle wit this account is that it can be attached to the charity of choice for the Talk Fusion associate in charge of the account. This gives every Talk Fusion associate the chance to give back while going about their day to day work. Instilling the idea of philanthropy into the structure of the company is what makes CEO Bob Reina such an important figurehead.
Of course, Bob Reina also runs his own philanthropic endeavors outside of the Talk Fusion walls. Reina has given an incredible amount to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay — a record breaking $1 million, in fact. Reina’s also getting involved overseas and with charities all around the world.

The use of lip balm among women has been a tedious task; from looking for the appropriate brand to enduring the brand’s imperfections. For so long ladies had to buy lip balm from the drug stores and even then, the brands did not have many flavors. EOS lip balm found the greatest market gap in the shape of the existing lip balms. The lip balm tubes would often get lost in the handbags and women had to pull out almost all the contents of their bags out to find them. While making a spherical shaped balm was the best way to go, it also meant applying it with fingers which turned off most ladies. After a trial by different clay molders, EOS was able to come up with the perfect spherical product that favored both the consumers and the company.
Taking over the cosmetics markets was tougher than coming up with a favorable product. For starters, men who wanted the product perceived it as unisex but understood nothing of it. Walgreens supermarket was already flooding with popular brands such as Chapstick and Burt’s Bees. Even with the normal advertising they needed something more to boost their sales and create the brand some goodwill among the people. The company’s major target was the millennial women of ages 25-35 with a sense of style. They choose some of the celebrities to market their products in the song videos and movies such as Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift.
Today the company (https://lipbalmcompany.com/products/eos-lip-balm) makes more than a million sales in a week which is more than they sold for the whole of the first year and have gained millions of followers on Facebook and Instagram. They have also made more flavors of the lip balm and engaged in production of other products such as shoes. The brand continues to grow every day. For more info, visit evolutionofsmooth.com.

The Squaw Valley ski resort in California recently had an issue with a contamination of their upper mountain water system. There had been extraordinary rain earlier in October which allow overflow to leak into the water supply. The contamination was discovered during a routine water test. The contamination was immediately reported to the Placer County Department of Environmental Health. In the test, both E. coli coliform bacteria were detected. The ski resort immediately closed all of the restaurants that were using the water supply from the upper mountain. Guests were supplied with fresh bottled water but the ski resort remained open to visitors.
The ski resort has been working diligently to restore the drinking water supply to the guests and businesses located on the upper mountain. In recent testing, there were no traces of E. coli and very low traces of coliform bacteria. The water supply will remain off-limits to visitors until the test results show that there are no longer any trace amounts of the bacteria left in the water supply.
Squaw Valley takes the safety fo their guests very seriously which is why they are taking every precaution to ensure everyone’s safety. Although the resort remained open they prevented any of the guests from consuming the contaminated water. The resort plans on reopening the restaurants that are located in the affected area as soon as they are given the all clear by the Placer County Department of Environmental Health. In the meantime, they will keep everyone posted on any developments.
As the spring season arrives, I swap out the flavors of my EOS lip balms to those that are a little lighter than the ones I use in the winter. Strawberry is my favorite. I enjoy how it smells almost like a strawberry milkshake. It goes on the lips smoothly and keeps my lips moisturized during the day. Not only is the scent invigorating, the taste is delicious as well when it’s on my lips.
Another fun flavor that I enjoy is the honeysuckle honeydew. Just opening the small container of the EOS lip balm is enough to make me feel like I’m in a large meadow picking honeysuckles. It has a sweet smell and a refreshing taste on the lips. The balm keeps my lips soft all day and protects them from getting chapped, which is something that is hard to find in most of the lip balms that I’ve tried. Hit evolutionofsmooth.com

The internet has made a lot of changes to the fashion industry. Men and women have discovered plenty of new benefits that come with the internet. For instance, people have greater access to the different products that they could not easily find in department stores. Also, they could also save a lot of money with the items that they buy because of the discounts that they find in different stores. Therefore, fashion retailers on Bloomberg have been faced with challenges that they had to meet so that they can continue providing the service for customers. Often times, these challenges are a lot easier for newer companies to meet than older companies.

For one thing, they have access to a lot more people than the physical companies do. As a result, they are more likely to get tons of sales. Physical companies have to rely on their location in order to get the sales. This brings with it a limit as to how much money they can make. Also, the expenses of the property need to be accounted for in order to be able to determine profits.
As Don Ressler would tell entrepreneurs, it costs a lot less to run a website than it is to run a business at a physical location. This is why he has set up TechStyle online. With the brands of TechStyle, Don Ressler also has other ways of running business that is effective. One of the ways to run a business that they use is the membership. After all, loyal customers are the ones that are going to be making the most purchases. Don Ressler has the right idea of having customers sign up for memberships and then rewarding them.
This is the digital internet age. Therefore, it is important for business owners to do what they can in order to harness the full potential of their business reported on Brandettes. This is especially the case when it comes to fashion. It is important to offer exclusive deals to loyal customers so that they will enjoy the company more.
