There are lights, then there are lights, right? We all have the grandmother or aunt who have the contemporary lamps next to the couch, on the end tables. They usually sit on a black, brown or beige stand, with a matching lampshade, right? Or maybe the lampshade has a floral design on it.
Well, welcome to the new age of lamps! These days, it’s ok to be a lot more creative, inside and out. So, we speak our minds, dress in what we like, and raise out kids to do the same. Shouldn’t you dress your home with the same sense of creativity and style that inspires you to “dare to be different“?
Here a few lighting ideas that will feed your appetite for something different:

I read an article in Forbes today titled, “4 Lessons From the Red Carpet On Customer Service“. It was so plainly explained just how easy the art of customer service is to master. Receiving great service has greatly diminished in recent years. It seems like the more competition that has surfaced in the online and brick-and-mortar retail arena, as well as the services space, the more nonchalant customer service has become. I’ve yet to understand this. I have said time and time again that customers are what you need and should want. Customers are who pay your bills (even though they don’t literally “write the check”), so why do so many… too many people feel that offering a customer their butt to kiss, because they’re having a bad day, is alright?! Just go clock out and try it again the next day.
The article uses Beyonce as an example, but shouldn’t each and every one of your customers be a Beyonce? Do they have to be a mega-celebrity or be filthy rich for you to do your job to the best of your ability? NO! I’ve said it to Customer Service Reps, on the phone and face-to-face, if you don’t like dealing with customers, go buy an island and treat yourself like crap! It’s ridiculous to think that a customer is going to pay a dime for someone to suck their teeth, roll their neck (and, no, this is not a racial thing) or make a negative comment in another language and think that the customer should just deal with it… SERIOUSLY?! I beg to differ!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely mothers out there! This includes the women who have reached back to help other’s children, the aunt’s and Big Sisters and the neighbors who are “others centered”. A heart-felt Thank You is in order :
I thought a good post for today would be centered around self. Today is Mother’s Day, but this is for you men too. And, yes, this is the very foundation to delivering superior customer service. Giving great customer service and being a great customer, both start and end with you. You could look at this as tips in personal development, as well. Either way, servicing you first, is what matters. How can you take care of someone else’s needs, if your own basic needs aren’t being met, right?

Here are 6 practices to make sure you are the best YOU possible:
1. Get enough good rest –
This is said time and time again, and we all know it to be true. So why don’t we get the 7-8 hours of sleep that the experts say adults need each night? First of all, every adult is different. Personally, if I get more than 6 hours of deep sleep, one of two things are guaranteed to happen. For one, my body will want more sleep. Not because I didn’t get enough, but because the more I get, the more I want. Second, I will wake up with a ridiculous headache, mainly because I’m hungry. The ideal amount of deep sleep for me is 6 hours. It has been for years and continues to be perfect, for me, to this day. Read more
