For decades people have scanned the aisles of stores picking up the tried and true brands of lip balms. It was more of a chore, like brushing your teeth, nothing fun or happy about applying the lip grease. But about 7 years ago, 3 men with a vision set out to make lip balm history and they have. In a report by Fast Company, Sanjiv Mehra, co-founder of EOS, Jonathan Teller, and Craig Dubitsky wanted to shake things up in the lip balm industry. Dubitsky left before the official EOS lip balm launch. At this present moment, they are number two, falling in behind Burt’s Bees, also leaping ahead of Chapstick.
Lip balms remained an untouched product area for a century. But with the vision of these 3, they switched it up by changing the outlook on lip balm completely. They pulled away from the typical look, deciding to target the female audience, age ranging from 25 to 35. They decided to go with a sphere shape, adding bright, pastel colors so it’s visually appealing. They didn’t advertise right off the bat. Instead they landed a chance meeting with a female buyer from Walgreens. She seen what they seen and took that chance. Other retail stores like Racked and Wal-Mart followed. It wasn’t long before EOS can be found everywhere. Production and distribution was the main goal in the beginning with their small startup company.
From that point, they reached out to beauty bloggers. Getting them to try their product and go to social media (https://www.facebook.com/eos/) with their findings. Celebrities took to the new lip balm. Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera, and Kim Kardashian was spotted pulling these cute orbs out from their make-up bags and using them. That helped stir the curiosity about the product line. EOS tickles all 5 senses. It covers how it feels in the hands, how it visually appeals to the eyes, how it smells, how it tastes, and the sound it makes when the orb closes. To read more on EOS, look here.

The hallmark of a document processor is the speed and the accuracy with which the documents can be processed and delivered to the required destination. Nationwide has a compliance rate of 99.98% and a failure rate of only .78%. These are important figures because they measure success in delivery. These figures show that nearly 100% of everything is being delivered accurately and with great speed.
The employees of Nationwide deserve much of the credit as far as these amazing statistics shine at the top of the industry. Employees receive ongoing training and reviews in addition to their initial training when they come on board. They also have additional training modules that can be utilized for further advancement in the company and from 50% to 70% of the workforce is involved in the additional training at any given time.
Danny Byrnes who is Vice President for Sales with Nationwide said in a recent video that nationwide has had to study the subtleties and nuances of the maintenance of a national abstractor network, and investments had to be made in a big way to reach the next level of competence and delivery standards. The investment in technology has made the difference in the delivery of the product at the lowest costs and efficiencies, and that is the secret to the providing of the service on a high level consistently.

I just got this tweet from the Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles. I have been studying Kabbalah off and on for the past 7 years or so. It has really helped me out immensely in my life. It has added to considerable change and growth. Kabbalah can help you out too, you just have to be open to the teachings and the bigger picture.
One of the things the Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles teaches is about “being in the moment”. We all tend to lose sight of things. We get caught up in the happy times of our lives. When life throws us a curveball we tend to get detached from it. We become divorced from the bad stuff, saying it is not our fault. I may have spoken about this before, but there is a reason why I am bringing it up.
What we need to remember is that is all happening to us for a reason. We often times take our good moments for granted. When this happens, this is often times when the bad stuff comes in. It is coming to us to remind us to “live in the moment“. To not take a single thing for granted.
We should not take either the good or the bad stuff for granted at any time. Embrace it. The Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles teaches us that the bad stuff is there to help us learn and grow. Is there to help us change what needs to be changed. The good stuff is a reward for us having gone through the travesty.
“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”.
Our teacher comes in many forms. It is not just the rabbi we speak with at the Kabbalah Center. Our teachers come to us in our daily lives. There is both light and dark. It is important to acknowledge this so we do not take any of it for granted. This is all part of living in the moment.
Remember to live in the moment and the light will shine through.
What do you do when your new startup company wants to break into an already over saturated market place and get your fair share of the market? That is the same question that the staff of EOS lip balm might have had to answer. EOS which is short for the company name Evolution Of Smooth was a small startup company who was looking to sell lip balm. The competition, if you can call it that, was huge. There was already a leader that was selling lip balm and people bought it and used it. However, Evolution Of Smooth thought their product was better and they thought they could take their fair share of the market, but, what did the customer think and what was the plan?
EOS Lip Balm Company knew they had to have a solid plan and behind the door of the secret office, a plan was starting to develop. The company knew that they could become the choice for the new generation when it came to lip balm. The other lip balm companies made an okay product, but, it was just okay, not great. EOS was a better product, made to feel less like car wax and they also worked on making EOS have some amazing and different flavors. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Eos-Sweet-Mint-Lip-Balm-0.25-oz/15136069.
EOS lip balm knew that flavor was a key ingredient. They also knew that people would like a new design for their container. Most of the items came in a tube and EOS wanted to go tubeless. A ball shape was designed and that is how EOS lip balm comes to the marketplace. The Evolution of Smooth Company started offering their product in Ulta drug stores, dollar stores and other places where some of the other lip balm were not already on sale. As a result their sales grew and they became a global leader in the market.
