The eighth project in the Toastmaster’s Competent Communicator manual is entitled “Get Comfortable With Visual Aids” and involves the use of visual aid to help the audience understand and remember the main thrust of the speech. The first objective for project number eight is for the speaker to select visual aids that are appropriate for the message he or she intends to convey to the audience. For example, if the speaker decides to give a speech on the topic of what the experience is like to actually join Scentsy as a sales consultant he or she may choose to employ various Scentsy products including but not limited to candle warmers or Scentsy bars.
The second objective to project number eight is for the speaker to use these selected visual aids correctly, with ease and confidence when delivering the speech. Because the time allotted for this particular speech is a mere five to seven minutes the speaker must deliver the speech and use the visual aids as efficiently as possible. On efficient and effective way the speaker might employ the use of visual aids is to pass around a Scentsy product so that the audience can actually take in the scent and appreciate it for themselves.
Not everyone can truly appreciate what it means to join Scentsy if they have never done that on their own. Accordingly a speaker who is attempting to faithfully describe this phenomenon accurately has their work cut out for them. This, of course, is both the true challenge as well as the true reward of project number eight in the Competent Communicator Manual. There are many factors that will work to determine whether or not the two objectives of the speech have been successfully achieved by any particular speaker. The most important factor in this determination is probably how comfortable the speaker is in using the visual aids he or she has selected to use.
Oh water, thou destroyer of homes with your floods and your seepage. You soak into wood and rust away metal. What we work so hard to build up you mindlessly tear down without a second thought causing untold water damage Utah. Forgive me for personifying you who are so clearly not human. You are a force of nature and as such not only do you not possess a second thought, you never had a first thought to precede it.
What can be done in the face of such a mindless destroyer of all our works? Certainly we must take steps to avoid water damage Utah in the first place. For example, we must not build our dwelling places on a flood plane where we know water is want to travel. Certainly we must take steps to mitigate water damage one it happens by cleaning up the mess and drying the place out. Certainly we can purchase a separate flood insurance policy as we know well that home owner policies typically do not cover this contingency.
Our civilization is a proud one and we must strive to keep it from declining with all our hearts. Water cannot defeat us so long as we do not give in to it. Let the fire in our hearts continue to burn brightly. Never shall we let the forces of wetness douse this most precious flame. It is known that man’s life on this earth is fleeting and full of misery and yet we stubbornly persist and resist the forces which desire to break us. Perhaps many generations from now the light of vitality will grow dim and go out. But that time is not now and therefore we will stand proud in the face of the destructive power of water. Let it do its worst and when it is done we will build it up again.
Soon after I made the decision to join Scentsy I came in contact with the Adored Scentsy Bar. According to the description of the Adored Scentsy Bar available on the www.dreams-unlimited.com website this product is, “[f]un, flirtatious, cherry black plum and a warm whiff of sandalwood [which together] spin a succulent springtime yarn.” I must admit that I whole heartedly agree with this product description. Upon taking in the vapors of the Adored Scentsy Bar for the first time I did indeed experience the elation that I believe the words “fun” and “flirtatious” allude to. Moreover, my olfactory senses did in fact take in the aroma of “cherry black plum” along with a very distinctive “whiff of sandalwood.”
Where this product description runs off the rails as far as I am concerned is in its last five words. These words of which I speak (or write to be accurate) are the ones which claim the Adored Scentsy Bar “spin[s] a succulent springtime yarn.” To my knowledge a “yarn” in this context should be taken to mean “story” as in, “he spins a good yarn” meaning “he tells a good story.” I suppose I can imagine how a scent can tell a good story in that the scent describes a scene or evokes a memory that can be associated with a story line. However, I have a hard time understanding how this springtime yarn spun by the Adored Scentsy Bar is “succulent.”
Don’t get me wrong. I understand that this product description was written by another person who made the decision to join Scentsy like me. I imagine they are sitting in a writing room with some other people tasked with the responsibility to devise hundreds of product descriptions for hundreds of Scentsy products. This description may have been the last one of the day written after his or her mind was spent. If this is the case then I can forgive the use of “succulent” to describe a “springtime yarn.”
The Scentsy Corporation very much desires to inspire the people who choose to join Scentsy as well as its loyal customers with beautiful fragrances and the corresponding, wonderful mental destinations where they can be transported to via the fragrances. Accordingly, any person who loves the products produced by Scentsy is strongly encouraged by the Scentsy Corporation to launch their very own business by becoming a full fledged Scentsy sales consultant. Deciding on this course of action can be seen as making an important investment in one’s self and the cost of this investment is a mere ninety nine dollars in United States currency.
When a person makes the decision to join Scentsy they will immediately be sent what is called the Scentsy Starter Kit which contains all the various tools of the business along with an assortment of products which can then be used to get started as a Scentsy sales consultant. Many sales consultants upon receiving this Scentsy starter kit will immediately make arrangements for their very own launch party at which they can begin to earn their very first sales commissions.
When a person joins Scentsy they will have the opportunity to support charitable causes that are important to them. This is true because every season, Scentsy Consultants are encouraged to submit ideas for a new Cause Product and a charitable organization for the Scentsy Corporation to support.
Moreover the Scentsy Corporation recently launched a brand new catalog which is something that happens only twice a year. The release of the Scentsy catalog marks the point when thousands of unique and passionate people renew their allegiance to excellence. At the time of this renewal they review all the wonderful products available within the pages of the catalog and look forward to meeting with customers to spread the word on the what Scentsy has in store for them.
When your house suffers water damage Utah there are different vendors you may choose to clean up the damage of the impact. However, there is another equally powerful impact that must be dealt with in addition to the physical damage inflicted upon your house. The impact to which I refer is the psychological impact caused by the damage and loss to personal possessions and indeed to the structure of the place you call home.
Your home is not simply a roof over your head and the walls that surround you. Nor is your home simply a warm, dry shelter that offers protection from the elements. Your home is the location of priceless, family heirlooms and other objects you have collected throughout your life steeped in sentimental value. Your home is the place where memories have been created and where experiences of grave experience are yet to occur. In short, your home is a physical structure saturated with a lifetime of psychological energy and when it suffers water damage Utah, so to does your psyche.
Of course any valid or helpful advice regarding dealing with the psychological impact of the damage or loss of a home resulting from water is beyond the scope of this three hundred to five hundred word article intended for web bots to read. Anyone who has suffered such a tragedy after dealing with salvaging property, contacting the insurance carrier and hiring contractors to deal with the physical damage should probably speak to a licensed mental health counselor. Rather, the purpose of this article is solely intended to bring about an awareness of the potential psychological impact that water damage to the place you call home can cause. Knowledge of this type is power and with this knowledge preparations for a potential solution will be easier to come by.
You probably hear it every day. You must join Scentsy! But what does it mean to join the Scentsy sales force? Certainly joining Scentsy as a sales associate will give you the freedom you will never achieve sitting in an office cubicle for forty hours a week. Joining the Scentsy team will get you out of your house and allow you to work on your terms and on your hours. You have probably heard this sales pitch from other work from home marketing companies. The difference you will find working with Scentsy is the amazing variety of quality products that Scentsy has to offer.
Scentsy is probably best known for the vast array of fragrances it has to offer. For example, I am particularly fond of the “Black Raspberry Vanilla” scent. This scent can be found under the categories of classics and fragrance collections. It is described as “Delicious, sun-sweetened dark berries warmed with vanilla.” But in reality, this description does little to fully capture the grand majesty that is the Black Raspberry Vanilla scent. And truly no mere collection of words will ever do the scent justice. To experience the scent yourself you must either purchase it on line or join Scentsy yourself. When you do you will not be disappointed.
So what are you waiting for. Take the leap into the unknown world of freedom and fragrance. Your new, fresh smelling existence is waiting for you. Like a siren song it calls your name from just beyond this drab, ordinary world in which you currently reside. Why hold on to this nostalgia that no longer serves your best interests? In the words of U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, you “have nothing to fear but fear itself.” Truth be told, I have never fully understood that statement in a literal sense. I am not sure anyone fears fear itself. But you and I both understand the sentiment behind the phrase. Your fears are illusions. You must boldly strike out ahead and join Scentsy!
Renters living in unclean accommodations often are in need to hire someone to do their house cleaning Vancouver. These renters will require a cleaning service to save them the time and effort they might otherwise spend in the process of cleaning their apartments themselves. Possibly they want a cleaning service to save them the aggravation of knowing they will have to clean their living space eventually. Renters might want to hire a cleaning service because they know that a cleaning service will bring their own cleaning equipment and supplies thereby saving the renter the added expense of purchasing the cleaning supplies themselves. Not to mention, hiring a cleaning service will free up any storage space required to store the cleaning supplies and equipment the renter might otherwise have purchased.
Renters know that hiring a cleaning service will ultimately improve their standard of living by creating a healthier environment. In addition to improved air quality, the benefits of hiring a cleaning service might include but are certainly not limited to creating a safer and more sanitary environment. Allergy causing dust and bacteria will otherwise accumulate on surfaces in the apartment including the blinds, furniture, the interiors of closets, drawers and cupboards, window sills, ovens and refrigerators for example.
A reputable service providing house cleaning Vancouver will endeavor to hire professional workers. The house cleaning service will make sure their employees are properly vetted and insured. Accordingly, these workers will handle a client’s personal space and possessions with care. Renters often fear that the people employed by cleaning services will steal from them or damage their personal possessions. By contrast, this actually occurs less frequently than many people expect. Obviously a cleaning service with good business sense will hire the most honest employees in order to retain their reputation and ultimately their business.
I discovered a very mysterious scent after I made the decision to join Scentsy. The name of this scent is the “Camu Camu Scentsy Bar.” My research of this scent produced very little documentary information. One product description read “thick, rich New York cheesecake with a light graham cracker crust and delicious blueberries.” The only other product description I could find read, “Tropical oasis of lush mandarin, camu camu, and passion fruit.” At first blush these descriptions seem to be describing two different products. Clearly “thick, rich New York cheese cake with a light graham cracker crust and delicious blueberries” is not the same thing as “tropical oasis of lush mandarin camu camu and passion fruit.” The more I think about it the more I arrive at the conclusion that the first product description is some how in error. I do not really know what “Camu Camu” is but I am pretty sure it has nothing to do with cheesecake and graham cracker.
According to WebMd “Camu camu is a shrub that grows in swampy or flooded areas of the Amazon rain forests of Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, and Colombia. The fruit and leaves are used as a medicine. Camu camu is used for viral infections including herpes, cold sores, shingles, and the common cold. It is also used for eye conditions including cataracts and glaucoma. Other uses include treatment of asthma, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, gum disease (gingivitis), headaches, and osteoarthritis. Some people use camu camu to increase energy and maintain healthy gums, eyes, and skin; and as an antioxidant and immune system stimulant. People eat the fruit as food.”
Clearly the description above from WebMd has nothing to do with New York cheesecake and graham cracker crust. After reading this description it is my considered opinion that that Scentsy website had put the cheesecake description erroneously on the Camu Camu Scentsy Bar product page. This is one of many mysteries I have solved since I made the decision to join Scentsy.
When you join Scentsy you will become very familiar with a product called a candle warmer. This is a product I knew very little about before I joined Scentsy. Basically, a candle warmer is an electric device designed to melt a candle or scented wax. In the process of melting the candle the warmer causes the candle to release its scent throughout the room in which it is located. The candle warmer is specifically designed to be used only in conjunction with candles in jars and not with the thin, tapered style candles or candles that do not have containers large enough to hold all the melted wax. Many candle warmers have a built-in bowl in which the candle is placed for the purpose of collecting excess melted wax. Candle warmers allow the candles to emit the scent they would otherwise emit if lit. However, by using the candle warmer you will avoid creating a potential fire hazard. You will also avoid any unwanted soot or mess.
I have fond memories when I was young around Christmas time when my mother would light candles around the house. However, for young children sometimes the allure of a lit candle is too much of a temptation. I remember I liked to dip my finger in the molten wax and let it harden on my finger. I also enjoyed being around the flame. Looking back on this I can now see what a potential hazard these candles created as I could have easily, accidentally started a fire by fooling around with these candles. I also could have burned myself. Luckily none of this ever happened.
Candle warmers are a great way to enjoy the scent of the candles without the worry that a candle might otherwise entail. For this reason candle warmers make a great gift for couples with small children in their house. This is especially true during the Christmas season. As I said, once you join Scentsy you will become intimately familiar with this subject. Happy Holidays!
Birthdays are all about making the birthday boy/girl feel special. We want to recognize his or her unique qualities, and let them shine! One of the ways to accomplish this is to plan a personalized birthday party. Now, many people can get carried away when it comes to party planning (myself included).
