Why Customer Experience is the New Brand

This is a guest post from Avery Steinhauer on behalf of Ayima. In 1998, home video and rental company Netflix only had 30 employees and 925 titles in their inventory. However, as the video rental market started to decline in the 2000s, the company saw the potential in personalisation and the way in which it was changing the digital market.

Right brain. Left brain.Riglef brain.

I have always had a problem with the cliché right brain, left brain theory. You know the one. It states that the right and left hemispheres of the brain have different functions. The left brain is the logical side, while the right side is where creativity resides. My problem is based on an intense observational study of one: Me. I have found that while I consider myself a “creative,” and therefore should be right brained, I need structure and logic—no matter how convoluted it may appear to othe...

Marketing Strategies Your Business May Be Overlooking

Businesses don’t get very far without a stellar marketing strategy backing them every step of the way. It’s what gets their name around town and beyond, and truly gives them a presence in the public conscious. When the buying public knows a business, they gradually build a report, and a trusting bond between customer and corporation soon begins to form.

2018 2019 2020 HSA Contribution Limits

Even though we just got into 2019, it’s time to think about HSA for 2020. The contribution limits for various tax advantaged accounts for the following year are usually announced in October, except for HSA, which come out in April or May. The contribution limits are adjusted for inflation each year, subject to rounding rules. Because of the rounding rules, I’m able to calculate the limits based on the inflation numbers available so far. The inflation numbers in the couple of months ahead will no...

Take a Load Off Your Move

Moving a great distance adds to the stress as it is taxing on everyone involved and it also takes longer to complete your move. Hiring a moving company such as Allied Van Lines to handle the heavy moving can be a huge ...

The Five-Year Rule for Buying a House

My entire family got involved when I first considered buying a house, since I have the luck of being related to real estate agents, investors, and other experts that are more than happy to give advice about buying a property — even before I ask. The first thing they asked me was exactly how long I expected to stay in the house. Though I didn’t know the exact amount of time, they wanted to make sure that I’d own the house for at least five years. Why’s that? What’s the five-year rule for buying ...

Dear Tech: Let’s Do Better

We all want to believe in something larger than ourselves. We want to believe that our words, deeds and actions can make a difference in the world – what Steve Jobs described as “making a dent in the universe”. But over the last decade, it feels like we have all been knuckling down, focusing on near term data – the next quarter, the month end numbers, the little things that allow us to scrape by week-by-week. I’m not suggesting all these things are not important. After all, we do need to ...
