BBB recommends reputation management as a cornerstone for business success

It’s hard to imagine a more powerful asset to your business than a great reputation.  Priceless in value because, as Harvey Mackay, New York Times best-selling business author, says, ”You can’t buy a good reputation — you must earn it.”   A key to business success is creating a reputation of excellence. While that takes time, strong business reputations are routinely credited for sales growth, loyal customers and attracting higher quality employees.  Brand reputation is also a powerful tool to stand out from your competitors.  According to statistics from Salesforce research, 95% of customers will be loyal to a company with a reputation they trust, and more than 90% are more likely to recommend the business. 

Culinary Art Schools | Gracia Studio

Cleanness and orderliness define Culinary Art Schools, and it’s really all needed when seeking to respond the project’s requirements, located in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. At a quick glance, any stranger would say anything but a professional cooking school is housed inside these two volumes, which function as the main characters, and where materials like exposed concrete, steel, garapa wood, glass and metal structure are combined. It is located with not very much in its surroundings, which is why the two main volumes face each other, creating a transition space: the grand plaza. The greater volume contains the administrative offices, classrooms, library, and the wine cellar. On the second main volume, the cooking stations, with absolute transparency between it and the plaza, as well as with the other workshops. “We are always in-between, inside and outside simultaneously”, says Inés Moisset; a third volume is involved, which accommodates the cafeteria and a small auditorium, where the alumni are able to observe their professors’ work. Gracia studio is characterized not only by solving functionality and aesthetics but contributing with creativity in each project, as well as low-cost and use of new technologies and local materials, which translate into an innovative architecture.

With health care in spotlight, some Ontario nursing programs see record applications | Globalnews.ca

When Princess Jibrin told her mom she was interested in following her path and pursuing a career in nursing, she says the response was a mix of excitement and caution.  She will work some 14-hour days, Jibrin’s mom, a recently retired critical care nurse in Hamilton, Ont., told her. “She will see things that take a toll on her mental health — things that “break” her.”, she recalled of the conversation.  But Jibrin says nursing is her calling.  “You’re going to be doing what you love and you’re going to be helping people at the end of the day,” she said.  Jibrin is one of the thousands of people who applied for a spot at an Ontario nursing school this fall, as some programs report a record number of applicants.

These Unique Programs and Courses Engage NJ Students of All Ages

You’ve heard of overpriced, oversold promises from self-help coaches and New Age retreats before. (And who wouldn’t be vulnerable to being duped after these past two exceptionally challenging years?)  The rise of snake-oil salesmen is no secret to anyone reading the news or binge-watching Netflix’s extensive true crime or reality TV selections. (One of the most notable examples: Billy McFarland of Short Hills, an alum of Basking Ridge’s prestigious prep school, Pingry, who was convicted of fraud in 2018 after his ill-fated Fyre Festival.)  Yet the trailblazing Master of Arts degree in happiness studies—the first of its kind in the country—promises to be different. It’s being offered at Hackettstown’s Centenary University this fall.
