Tech Entrepreneurs Derrick Butler & Mario Goins bring Hair Services On-Demand

Published

Tech Entrepreneurs Derrick Butler & Mario Goins

Beauty on demand is a revolutionary idea that has taken over the world by surprise, bringing more convenience to people than ever before. Derrick Butler and Mario Goins, the two inspiring entrepreneurs, have shown that getting a new look only requires a few taps on the screen.

Who are tech entrepreneurs? Well, these are not mere buzzwords, but in fact, people who are able to find real-world problems and then solve it using technology. Tech Entrepreneurs are visionary geniuses aiming to find innovative solutions to the most underlying challenges faced by the society, and the story of Derrick Butler & Mario Goins is no exception.

Derrick Butler, Founder & CEO of Krisspi, was a student at St Mary’s College, trying to find a balance to his social, academic, and personal life – it was a real juggle. You know how they say that necessity is the mother of all inventions? Well, this is precisely what happened here. The idea of an on-demand hair service came into Derricks’ mind when he needed a haircut after 7 pm so that he could catch a flight the next day in the morning for a wedding. It was at that moment when Derrick realized that there is a need for a hairstyling service – hairstylists come to your doorstep and get the job done. No more waiting, no more delays.

However, Krisspi was still just an idea then, and now it was time to turn it into a reality. In 2017, Derrick met Mario Goins, the Co-Founder & CTO of Krisspi. Fast forward three years, and just like that, Derrick Butler & Mario Goins introduced the world to Krisspi, an application-based company that provides haircuts on-demand to its customers. Think of it as “UBER” for your hair styling needs.

Benefits of On-Demand Hair Services

Summon your staff with the tap of a button? These are things people normally associate with celebrities and famous public figures. But what happens when everyone can have that kind of power and accessibility? Sound revolutionary, right?

In a world of instant gratification economy, there is a demand for everything that brings convenience to people, and that is what Derrick Butler & Mario Goins knew when they started Krisspi. The two tech entrepreneurs had an idea, saw an opportunity, and created something that was unheard of before.

On-demand hair services offer several benefits which include:

Affordability

The biggest advantage of having on-demand hair service is there is no cost of managing a salon. It’s an online platform where hairstylists from different experiences, credentials, and qualifications are gathered in a single platform to deliver the best service to the end-user.

In a traditional salon, you have your traveling cost, which you need to get to the salon, then you wait for your turn, which, if you are a busy professional, equals loss of money. In on-demand hair services, you are in charge of everything. The hairstylists come at your doorstep at a time you desire, exactly how celebrities do it.

Convenience

Imagine you need to attend a wedding the next day tomorrow. All salons are far away in the city, and there is no time for you to go there. What do you do then? Go without a haircut? That’s just too absurd even to think.

On-demand hair services make sure you are never out of options. You have an app that connects you directly with your preferred hairstylist, and all you need to do is fill out the time and place. No worries at all.

Feedback

The ability to give feedback is extremely satisfying. Whether you had a good or bad experience, having a place to say whatever you felt gives you the assurance that your opinion matters. At Krisspi, people can post their reviews through the website or mobile app and let other people know of their experience. This helps others make better decisions related to the service.

Consultation

The majority of hairstylist are also good counselors. They know what looks good on you and help you decide the perfect look when you are confused. An expert hairstylist will have all the information on the latest trends and understanding of hairstyles based on facial features such as hair texture, face structure, skin complexion, etc.

How Krisspi Helps Busy Professionals

The biggest clientele of Krisspi is the busy, and career-oriented professionals, busy professionals who like Derrick have busy lives and need to take control of their calendars. Krisspi provides an ability to have On Demand or Schedule future service at a time and place that most convenient. Finding success in your career as a professional demand hard work and untiring efforts, and the two founding fathers of Krisspi understand that better than anyone else.

The idea behind Krisspi is to make people’s lives easier, and that is what it does best. It meets the needs of busy professionals by giving them the freedom to get a haircut at a time that favors their schedule, offering them convenience – something they cannot get through traditional methods.

Download the Krisspi App

To get the hairstylist at your doorsteps, all they need to do is download the Krisspi App from their respective app stores. Select the time, enter the place, choose the hairstylist they want, and schedule the appointment. See, it’s exactly like “UBER.” It’s all about giving the client the control and flexibility of their time.

Pomeranians – The Little Lions

Published

on

By

Pomeranian dogs are a very sweet and endearing breed that are relatively easy to care for, but as is the case with all dogs, they do require a lot of care and attention if they are to thrive and do well. Dogs are a lifetime commitment and you shouldn’t consider getting one unless you are prepared to fulfill all its needs.

Pomeranians belong to the toy dog breed and have recently become very popular and are even considered a status symbol by some. Barbara Cartland the famous romantic author had one and many rich and famous people own these little dogs. Pomeranians have starred in many movies and their cute miniature lion-like appearance makes them very sought after. Pomeranians are small dogs with thick fur around the neck region that makes them look like little lions.

Pomeranians have sweet, gentle personalities and love to be pampered and carried around by their owners. Their small size makes them the quintessential lap dog. Another advantage of this breed is that their bark is barely audible due to their tiny size. Pomeranians resemble little toy teddy bears or toy lions and this makes them very endearing in appearance.

Even their fur is doll-like and fine and they rarely develop a doggie odor. Pomeranians are a delight to own with their sable-like hair and quirky personalities. As beautiful as their hair is, it can become a bother on certain occasions. They do require a regular amount of grooming and they can dirty themselves when defecating, especially if the dog has diarrhea.

Being highly intelligent dogs, a Pomeranian will do everything in his power to hide his “accident” from you. He may drag his behind on the lawn or carpet, anything to hide evidence of the “Crime”. This is why it’s a good idea to keep your Pomeranian’s fur trimmed around his private parts. Some people prefer not to do this so as not to spoil the dog’s natural beauty, but with these accidents bound to happen more often than not, you may decide cleanliness is more desirable than attractiveness.

Some Pomeranian owners claim that these dogs love being carried around and placed on the lap as they are essentially lap dogs, but dogs are individuals and some dogs enjoy certain things while others don’t so you will have to find out what your Pomeranian prefers. Although they are frequently shown in movies to be carried around most of the time, they are dogs, and like all dogs, they generally prefer a good run or romp at the dog park to being carried around incessantly.

As with many toy breeds, these dogs require gentle but firm handling. They can become a bit bossy if given their way and you should always show them who is boss. They need leadership and once they view you as their pack leader they make loving, loyal companions. Don’t let your little Pomeranian’s cute looks let him get away with murder!

Pomeranians love being the center of attention and they give off an air of superiority and beauty. Being a toy breed, their antics are often very entertaining and fun to watch. Being very intelligent, you can easily housetrain these dogs and all you need to do if you want to housetrain your Pomeranian pup is to teach it to use a newspaper every time it needs to go. If your pup starts sniffing around and going around in circles, place a newspaper beneath it and it will soon understand what is required of it. Dogs quickly learn to use a newspaper when nature calls, and because of their small size, cleaning up after a Pomeranian is quite easy, except when they soil themselves!

If your Pomeranian soils himself you should wash his behind but make sure you use warm water so as not to give your dog a chill. Try to make the experience as pleasant as possible for your dog or you will soon discover he will learn to hide from you when he soils himself! These are very smart dogs!

Pomeranians are excellent escape artists and they can run very fast as well so be very careful to ensure your dog can’t squeeze through the fence if you have a backyard. Because they are so small they can easily escape through small openings and their tiny size can result in them not being seen by drivers and they can easily get run over. Their inquisitive nature can also get them into a lot of trouble so always do whatever you can to make sure your pet is safe.

Pomeranians need regular grooming to avoid their coat getting tangled. This breed is also a constant shedder and isn’t a good choice if you or anyone in your household has pet allergies. They shed their downy undercoat twice a year and require daily brushing. Make sure you also clean your dog’s eyes and ears regularly as part of your grooming program.

You should bathe your Pomeranian when needed and dry him thoroughly. It is recommended to use a blow dryer on these dogs to make sure they are completely dry as moist fur can cause hot spots and inflammations. Dry shampoo is a good alternative especially if you’re in a hurry or the weather is very cold. Once you’ve dried your dog, applying a little baby powder and brushing the dog will make his fur shine and smell divine.

Pomeranians don’t need a special diet but they can be picky eaters! As the breed is prone to dental problems make sure you offer your dog crunchy food and chews, but never feed chicken bones as they can splinter and kill your dog.

Pomeranians are great pets for apartment dwelling people. Because of their small and manageable size they also make ideal pets for seniors. Before getting a Pomeranian or any dog for that matter, please make sure you have the time and means to care for it for the rest of its life.

The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho

Published

on

By

The Witch of Portobello is a novel by Paulo Coelho. Perhaps already there is already a divide. There are readers, many of them, for whom the author conjures a world of another universe, perhaps, where, inside the unknown but knowable self, anything can be discovered. Equally, there is another group for whom this platitudinous pseudo-religious self-discovery approaches the nauseous. First, the bones of plot.

Sherine Khalil was abandoned at birth by her Romanian gypsy mother, at least partially because her father was a foreigner. Whether these origins, a rejection born of a persecuted minority in a context of political oppression are relevant is an academic question, because we spend so much time inside Sherine’s head, albeit from outside, that we often lose sight of any wider context.

Thus abandoned, the baby girl is adopted by a middle-class Lebanese couple and brought up amid the political turmoil of the Middle East in general and Lebanon’s war in particular. Neither scenario is examined in the book, though they are cited as possible influences on Sherine’s development, though specific consequences seem not to figure. Sherine renames herself Aurora, is brought up a Christian and has visions.

Aurora goes to London and university to study engineering, but drops out, marries and has a child, because she realizes that is what she really wants. The marriage breaks down and she attains the status of a single mother, a status she seems to claim as an act of martyrdom. She does several things to make ends meet before becoming an estate agent in Dubai, an activity that proves lucrative.

But throughout, there is a side to Aurora-Sherine’s personality that is not of this material world. She associates with the Virgin Mary, the mother, and with Santa Sophia and other phenomena. By the way, we can always tell if an emergent concept is both real and transcendental because we may note it always has a capital – letter even in speech. I digress…

Aurora returns to London and becomes associated with an apparently blasphemous sect based in Portobello Road, though what she is selling, apparently, is not secondhand. Amidst all the navel gazing and self-realization via universal personal discovery, there is space for religious difference. Fingers are pointed. Accusations are made. Let’s leave it there.

Sherine-Aurora’s story is told by a series of people who knew her. Criticism of the work arises because these reminiscences by different people do not really offer the different perspectives that might be expected. None of these people for instance dismiss Aurora’s claims about herself out of hand. In some ways, they are all converts.

Personally, I have just used this form in my own novel, Eileen McHugh, a life remade, so perhaps I am over-conscious of the of its potential shortcomings. For me, however, these different testimonies to the life of Sherine-Aurora were just two consistent to convince a reader they might be the recollections of a varied group of people with different memories and interests

I began by defining to apparently opposing reactions to Paulo Coelho’s work. Obviously, I am in the latter group, so why might I choose to read this book? Well, I read it in Spanish as a way of developing my fluency in the language. Personally, it was a means to an end and, as such, the book delivered, its calculated simplicity of style and associated simplicity of language suiting my linguistic goals perfectly

And, in facilitating my personal goals in this way, this opening up new possibilities for my own self-expression and discovery, it may just have delivered on the message of self-realization I have apparently been keen to dismiss. It becomes an illustration of whatever an artist may have intended in creating a work, it is eventually what the recipient experiences that endures. Perhaps there is always an element looking within when we experience our universe.

How to Turn Her On – Powerful Psychology Tricks That Will Spike Up Her SEXUAL Temperature Quickly!

Published

It’s a little known fact that women cannot help but feel turned on if they get sexual ideas planted into their heads. However, not many guys really know how to do this – and most of the time they rely on old, tired routines and pickup lines which don’t really get them anywhere. Worse, there are self proclaimed “seduction gurus” and charlatans who are bent to sell the magic pill that will solve a man’s problems. Fear not – help is here. Read on to discover the killer methods that you can use to turn a woman on and achieve killer results fast. These methods work because they are based on powerful psychology tactics that are proven to work time and again. Continue reading…

“Use Sexual Innuendos”. When you have developed some level of rapport with a woman and she seems to be fairly comfortable with you, then sprinkle some sexual innuendos in your conversations with her. For example, when she says that she spends about an hour in the shower every morning, then ask her, “I wonder what keeps you in there?” and give her a meaningful wink. Sometimes it works wonders if you just be direct. One of the students that I coach used this line on a woman – “I want to just rip your panties off and lick your vagina all night!” – and got laid 30 minutes later! I won’t, however, recommend this to anyone…

“Make Her Imagine Sexual Thoughts”. You can get a woman to think about dirty thoughts and turn her on by merely making suggestions to her. You DON’T want to tell her outright to imagine her having sex with you. Instead, just plant ideas in her mind by being indirect.

Hosted VoIP For Multi Location Businesses – What’s the Buzz All About?

Published

on

By

According to research firm In-Stat, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) penetration among businesses expected to reach 79 percent by 2013. That’s an amazing statistic when you consider that just 10 years ago, VoIP was considered a dirty word, thanks to concerns over quality and reliability. But with the lingering recession and vast improvements in VoIP technology, many businesses are giving VoIP another look. For good reason too. VoIP — and a next-generation model called “hosted” VoIP — offer numerous benefits over traditional phone systems, including lower monthly costs, simple controls, and productivity enhancing features.

Hosted VoIP is a fast-growing section of the market because it further simplifies the VoIP process. For example, getting started requires no upfront capital investment – just a monthly phone service fee. Employees get a convenient “plug and play” phone that can be set up anywhere there’s an Internet connection, and the rest of the equipment is “cloud-based” (hosted over the Internet) and out of the business owner’s hair. Employees can access a convenient web-based portal that gives them powerful features that help them better connect and communicate with important contacts.

The benefits of hosted VoIP are even more pronounced for businesses with more than one office location, or with telecommuters. Some of these benefits include:

FREE Office-to-Office Calling – It’s common knowledge that calling rates to outside lines (“off-network”) are substantially lower than traditional carrier rates, BUT what many do not know is that for businesses with multiple locations or telecommuters, office-to-office calling is free…. even to international branches! This is because they are considered “on-network” calls, which travel over the Internet and never actually hit the public telephone network.

3-Digit Extension to Anywhere – Instead of dialing a completely different 10-digit number for each location or remote employee, a hosted, cloud-based VoIP system enables businesses to use the same main number for all its locations, with convenient three or four digit extensions. This enables a workforce to function as if they are all in the same office. This is also convenient for customers who may need to be transferred to another location (without having to hang up and dial another 10-digit phone number).

Flexible Call Forwarding – With hosted VoIP, a business can leverage a centralized auto-attendant service that can centrally answer calls and route them to the right department or telecommuting employee, wherever they might be. The employee can easily set up call forwarding from their office phone to their home and cell phone numbers, as well as voicemail-to-email alerts. This can often be done through a web-based portal for live administration of the phone system settings. A feature like this can be invaluable for a business like a doctor’s office, where the physician must be reachable on certain days in cases of emergency.

Many of the car loan businesses are beginning to worry about not only getting in the game but also in maximizing their returns with all sizes racing to compete in the lending market. To outsource car loan business services, many industry experts understand that it is often considered more cost-effective.The most obvious reason for doing this is because industries don’t have to hire new staffs or underwriters solely for car loan operations and services.

But the advantages don’t stop there because there are a number of hidden advantages that many businesses fail to consider when entertaining ideas of outsourcing their car loan business processing that includes staffing and funding.

Improved Relationships with Customers

Your staff will be able to intensify its focus on strengthening relationships with your customers- making visits, gathering feedback and better addressing their needs that will drive growth for your car loan business portfolio.

A Guideline that Allows the Outsourcing Provider to Serve as an Extension of Your Car Finance Team

Your outsourced car loan provider should be able to efficiently, quickly, and easily customize its financing scorecard to fit your representation. By doing this, it guarantees that making a decision for car loan financing is consistent and fits your appetite and business plan.

Access to Consultation and Expertise

It allows your business to avoid common pitfalls that businesses fall victim to when trying to get in-house functions off the ground when outsourcing your car loan business processing. Through outsourcing, those businesses must hire the expertise that is readily available.

After-Hours Process

By waiting until the next business day to respond to proposals, don’t miss out on those deals especially over the weekend when many consumers have time to hunt for motorcycles, cars, and trucks.

It will absolutely offer a significant benefit over businesses with in-house operations that are confined to traditional business hours when you have an access to after-hours processing service.

How to Lead a Successful Conference Call

Published

on

By

In the course of managing a project, you are sure to be called upon to conduct a meeting through conference call at some point. These meetings can be tricky as you are mostly not face-to-face with some or most of the participants, which makes it harder to stay organized and focused. These few tips will help you stay on track and successfully achieve the purpose of the conference call.

– Prepare an Agenda in Advance

It is important to prepare an agenda for a conference call beforehand so the meeting has a pre-set structure all participants can follow. Doing this in advance will give your team and other remote participants time to prepare comments, questions and any necessary presentations so the meeting runs more smoothly. You can then tick items off this agenda as you go so that the meeting goes on in an orderly fashion and no important point is missed out on.

– Organize your team

Be sure to see to it that your team is familiar with the proper etiquette of a conference call. Since it is carried out over the phone, interruptions and environmental noises such as typing or clicking or pens can be much more disturbing than in a normal meeting. Also be sure everyone leaves their cell phones put, arrives on time so there are no interruptions, and is prepared for the meeting with a copy of the agenda and any other additional materials. Also make sure all team members introduce themselves when they join in and before speaking up as not all participants can see you during a conference call. Also have them keep comments brief, as without visual cues it is easy for remote participants to tune out of a drawn out monologue.

– Introductions

Introductions are important In a conference call, it is important for the project leader to start off with introductions of their team, and having the other party or remote participants do the same. This helps keep the meeting professional and structured, and there is lesser chance of confusion. It is also important to keep taking names, start questions with the name of the person they are addressed to, and encourage your team members to introduce themselves again before they speak as it is quite impossible to recognize so many voices over the phone.

– Maintaining control and momentum

As a project leader, it will fall upon you to take the lead and guide the discussion in a meaningful direction. Try to stick to the agenda, and keep the conversation flowing by asking questions and announcing the next topic under discussion. Also, if someone is quiet, don’t assume this means approval, and keep asking for feedback and confirmation. Moreover, it is easy for the remote participants to feel isolated or for your team to forget they are there, so be sure to keep them involved in the discussion and keep them from getting distracted by addressing them as you speak.

– Take Notes

It is easy to lose track of who said what in a conference call especially since you can’t tell most voices apart, so be sure to keep taking notes. This will also help you remember what was discussed and what decisions were taken, and who was assigned which job till the next meeting. Without this, your precious and carefully planned conference call can go to waste, as it is impossible to retain so much information in your busy head without notes. Also, these notes can serve as a basis for the next meeting’s agenda.

These few considerations can help any project manager lead better conference calls where all team members can take something of importance away from the meetings, and important urgent decisions are made instead of just wasting valuable time.

In some cases, they fail to the point that it is impossible to recover them. But mostly, the data stored on these drives can be recovered with special data recovery apps. But only experienced companies should be hired to handle the data recovery work as you may not want to hire someone who will further damage your hard drive. Experienced companies can give you a free service contact if contacted.

Degree of damage

With the passage time and regular usage, computer and the relevant peripherals tend to go through wear and tear. Moreover, careless handling can even cause severe damage to the component, especially component that are in use most of the time. Even if your hard drives seem to be severely damaged, the data may not be lost for good. A hard drive doesn’t work properly and gives strange sounds when the motors is not working properly or the read/write heads is stuck. In this case, the data can be recovered easily by taking apart the storage media.

In many cases, the storage media gets damaged due to spills. For instance, when the system comes into contact with water, problems occur. The hard disks don’t work and product strange noises. Most data recovery companies get orders where the storage media is exposed to water or other types of liquid, such as soda or coffee. In this case, the data can be recovered if you get the services of an expert service provider.

To cut a long story short, if you have been looking for a good data recovery service, you may come across a lot of popular companies. since there is a lot of companies out there, you may want to do search for a good one online or by asking around. Your colleagues may help you choose a good one, especially if they work in the same field. Don’t hire a data recovery service based on the service charges alone. Remember: your important data is at risk and you don’t want to lose it just to save a few bucks. Hope this helps.
