They even have pre-mixed and frozen frosting...
Signs of spring and new beginnings at the Conference & Pitch Expo 2013
by Own it Ventures at 2013-04-03 09:52:55
It was the first day of spring – March 20, 2013 – a morning filled with the quiet sounds of birds chirping and the faint scent of budding flowers offering the hope of new beginnings and renewal. Coincidentally, on that day over 150 women travelled to New York City from as far away as Florida to attend the 2nd Annual Own it Ventures Pitch Expo, where the region’s women entrepreneurs were given the chance for new beginnings by presenting their products, services or business plans to angel investors, venture capitalists, retail buyers, media and public relations specialists. There is no greater sense of excitement and opportunity for a new start than at a gathering of bright, eager and dynamic women all trying to make a difference not only for themselves, but for the greater good of the world. So was definitely the case on that day as each presenter entered the Media Room and was given a brief two minutes to tell their story, a journey that sometimes began many years before...

Is your Website Annoying Your Visitors?
by Joyce Beck at 2012-05-30 12:28:20
An article published in yesterday's E-Commerce Time's website gives us a sneak peak at a survey to be published next week. Hostway, a Chicago-based Web site hosting service, surveyed 2,500 people and found that website owners had better listen to what visitors are saying about their user experience, or risk losing them forever.
Among the features that visitors find most annoying are:
This is another clear example that your website HAS to be designed for the visitor coming to your site. Website owners need to put their ego aside here. Provide them with the information they are looking with a trouble-free user experience and be rewarded with lots of happy, repeat visitors.
The Virtuous Woman Parfum Story
by Kathy Hobbs at 2012-04-29 19:28:39
The Virtuous Woman perfume was developed to honor and celebrate the virtuous woman in my life; my mother Floree Watson. My mom died of cervical cancer in 1993 at the age of 54. She was the embodiment of the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31. She was beautiful, creative, industrious and a woman of integrity who loved her family and continually did for others; but most of all she loved God. My mom also loved beautiful scents. Whenever asked what gift she wanted, she would always say, “Just get me something to make me smell nice.” Even on her sickbed, when I would ask if I could get her something, she would still just say, “put something on me to make me smell nice.” And, this one simple request was my heartfelt beginnings of Virtuous Woman Parfum.

If you have to name one thing that makes you look older, what would that be?
Wrinkles, gray hair, sagging neck or dark circles?
Surprisingly, it is the dark circles under your eyes. Dark circles usually would indicate that you are not sleeping enough so you look a little run down and tired. Although that can be a major reason other factors such as:
DIY dark circle treatment at home: peel very thin slice of raw and cold potato(keep it in the fridge) and aply 2 slices to each eye. Press gently the under eye area, turn over the slice and repeat one more time. This process should take no longer than 5 min to enjoy the amazing results!

DIY Facial Exercise Get's Rid Off This....
Get rid of folds and lines from your face with a daily 5 min home facial massage. Muscles will get back to shape as quickly as two weeks and then you can do the massage less frequently keeping in mind that in order to keep the muscles in good shape you need to exercise them at least twice a week.
They’re more than just laugh lines, it is simply sagging skin of the face and sagging cheeks. Flabby muscles make you body look older and the same applies to the face.
A fit body looks sexy, you stand taller and the skin has a smooth and it is glowing from the extra oxygen it receives during the exercise.
The look of aged skin and droopy muscles will affect your confidence and no matter how you wear your hair, or how much makeup you use you'll still show the sagg.
It takes just a few minutes a day before going to bed:
