Is MOLD Dangerous? By Mold doctors USA

Is Mold Dangerous

Mold is considered to be an extremely small, dangerous element that belongs to the family of fungi. It can thrive on almost any surface especially cellulose-based objects.
They are present almost everywhere. Though they may be harmful at times, molds are considered a big part of the ecological balance in the community; they play a major role in breaking down organic substances in the environment.
According to some recent studies, approximately 50 percent of homes are inflicted with unknown moisture dilemmas. And as we all know molds thrive best in moist places. Acute exposure not lasting more than a day may lead to normal allergic reactions.  but chronic exposure in your home may lead to : bronchitis, pneumonia, pulmonary edema, chronic pneumonitis and some studies suggest cancer but no proof has been given.

And to a large extent, all indoor mold growth is potentially harmful and should be removed promptly, no matter what types of mold are present or whether they can produce toxins.

3 Key Secrets to Living The Life You Want. By: Sue Falcone

Do you know the 3 Key Secrets to living the life you want? Take a minute, challenge yourself, and see what you come up with!  I would love to hear your comments!
Recently I was asked to speak to an awesome group of high school sophomores and juniors who were graduating from a 2 year program of service sponsored by their local Chamber of Commerce! They had learned and demonstrated great skills and abilities, and had served their community well! My outcome was to motivate them into their successful futures and help them continue this experience of service into their daily lives, in 30 minutes or less!
Normally I am booking other speakers instead of myself;  but this was an honor and a joy to do! I had met a lot of these students, and it would help keep me connected to what I promote; and be a great experience of seeing how the 6 Generations in the Workplace communicate with each other!
I knew I had just seconds to get them involved. My first words were to give them permission to Tweet, Instagram, Facebook, Vine, Snapchat, and take notes on any device they chose!  They agreed to keep their ring tones down, so I wouldn’t want to stop and listen to their music!
I gave them the challenge as I did to you, to share what they thought the 3 key secrets are!  They had great points and ended up complimenting what I had in mind all along!
Here are the what we found are the 3 Key Secrets to living the life you want, and how to live them out loud every day!
  1. Know Who You Are- I’m talking about the “real” you when no one is looking! This is key because it will help you avoid comparing yourself to others, and help you develop your strengths rather than wasting time working to improve your weaknesses! How do you know the “real” you? By accepting, loving, and believing in yourself without wishing to be someone else. Learn to not let your “imperfections” (and we all have them) become your identity! Learn to be comfortable in your own skin and in turn it will help others be comfortable with you and overlook everything else!
  2. Have a Positive Attitude- Your mind is a funny thing, isn’t it? What you put in it is what you become. Having a positive attitude is a choice, and begins the moment you wake up each day! How is it possible to keep a positive attitude in this negative world? It’s important to choose the right things to read, what you view on TV and YouTube, and how you see yourself as a valuable person. Fear, doubt, worry, and discouragement are all around, but positive information and faith will guide you in overcoming the negative and face life with a smile and seek solutions and not excuses!
  3. Choose Carefully Who You Surround Yourself With- Jim Rohn says: “You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”  If this is true, isn’t it worth making sure you make the right choices of whom you spend your time with? Right now as you read this think of the 5 people you spend the most time with! Are they positive and uplifting? Do they know who “they” are? Do they build you and others up, not down? Is it possible you might need to make some changes?
See how these fit together in the daily adventure of life? To have a life you want means to share, care, volunteer, and serve. It’s not about you at all! You are already unique and special, you need to keep focused on knowing and living who you really are, keeping a positive attitude, and surrounding yourself with the right people!
Amazingly I saw these students and others writing down what I was sharing, and afterwards they were still talking more about their how’s and what they planned to do in their lives! I saw the future of our nation, future leaders, and future families represented there, and I am so thankful their parents, friends, and community leaders got to see it too!
I left there with a renewed heart, mind, body, and soul, ready to face my world of choices!  Are you ready to begin a new day of living your life out loud knowing the 3 Key Secrets that will make it happen?

Make The Relationship Matter. By: Marcia Whyte

Many people in business would be surprised to discover that, despite every company’s claims of giving great customer service, that alone is no longer enough!  That’s right … it’s not enough!  Consumers and other businesses that are on your client roster [rightfully] expect that you will be available to answer questions, advise them of upcoming sales/specials on your goods and services and make sure no glitches occur (or at least  get them fixed expeditiously).  But that’s just like paying the minimum on your credit card bills – the least of what you are obligated to do.  Rarely do we stop to realize that our customers are people … just like us … who deserve to be celebrated and appreciated without any hidden agenda other than to stay in a good relationship with them because they matters to us for the person(s) they are. 
According to both the SBA and the US Chamber of Commerce, 68% of customers stop doing business with companies because of perceived indifference … in other words, they don’t feel like they’re anything more than a business transaction to you.  Certainly there are other reasons but that percentage is too high to go unnoticed, especially when it can easily be changed.   
There is a way to distinguish yourself from the pack:  reach out to them via Relationship Marketing.  Celebrate them; be known as someone who truly cares:  send them cards honoring your relationship and keep in touch with them so you can acknowledge occasions that hold significance to them.  Cards:  birthday; thank you for your business/referral; congrats on the new office or promotion; holidays, etc., sent on a regular basis, will endear you and solidify the human relationship, which is far more important than the business aspect.  People [continue to] do business with those they know, like and trust and if you reach out to them, authentically, the chances of you having career-long clients/referral sources and lifelong friends greatly increases. 
Always remember that no matter who signs the check or the contract and uses our goods/services, they are people with thoughts, feelings, birthdays, anniversaries and long memories … make sure they always have a pleasant one of you!
This practice has served me well in the 12+ years I have been a sales professional.  I am passionate about it.  Reach out to me to discuss it more!
