The Top 3 Most Popular Google “Apps”

Considering where and how Google started, it is remarkable that today, in 2016, the company’s valuation in February 2016th was higher than that of Apple’s.

Imagine that. For a small little search engine that no one had heard of to becoming the dominating search engine in the world, to owning some of the most popular apps around, it might be dangerous to think of Google as nothing more than a harmless company.

Look behind some of the up and coming technology, and guaranteed, Google is working on it or has its hands behind it. Let’s go ahead and discuss three really cool apps that people worldwide enjoy, thanks to Google:

#1. Gmail.com: When it comes to signing up for an email account, you can not go wrong with Gmail. It is easy to use and known worldwide. In fact, while it is frowned upon to use personal emails for business purposes, Gmail emails are generally accepted with no apprehension. In fact, it is useless to create email accounts attached to services such as Xfinity (or Comcast). Whether you are using an iPhone or an Android, setting up your Gmail account is easy as pie! Of course, signing up for a Gmail account is a necessity to use the rest of the Google apps like the ones that are listed here.

#2. Blogspot/Blogger: Think of this as a blogging platform that started in the age of the dinosaurs (just joking!) It’s actually a cool blogging platform with a lot of versatility built into it. Also, search engine marketers give this platform a lot of weight for the benefit of rankings. The theory is that since Google owns this platform, it is beneficial to build links from Blogspot to the site an online marketer is trying to rank. No one knows a 100% until Google unveils this fact for themselves, but an easy experiment can be conducted for those who are curious!

#3. Youtube: Talk about a killer video based platform that Google acquired in 2006. Youtube was already a great success and a go to platform for uploading fun videos, musical performances, tv show snippets, and more. The huge benefit of using Youtube is you can easily share content across the web. You can embed the videos in posts, post them on Facebook, Tweet them on Twitter; whatever strikes your fancy. For technical purposes, you can also geo tag the videos, meaning define what region you are uploading from or want to tag them at. For SEO purposes, this would be extremely beneficial to local businesses, as they are trying to rank for the services they offer in their local area.

email_not_gmail

There are quite a few other handy apps that Google dominates the market for. Google Maps is one other map that a lot of my friends use and will not drive without. How about Google Adwords which millions of people use to advertise their businesses online? Google Play and Google Hangout are two more apps that Google has gained more visibility. Of course, this goes without saying, the giant search engine ITSELF is the best, free option most people use to look up or research topics.

Our Hotels Have the Cleanest Rooms in the Country

There has been a lot of news lately around the country regarding some of the less-than-ideal conditions in many hotel rooms. It’s even gotten so bad that a noted NBA player had to take a game off because of the infestation of bed bugs in the teams hotel rooms. It caused him to lose sleep and become very disturbed, even sick to his stomach! While we won’t repeat the name of the hotel, you can be certain it wasn’t ours! We thought we’d take this opportunity to discuss the cleanliness standards that all hospitality professionals should practice, and that we are proud to practice in our hotels throughout palm springs.

“Hospital Clean”

Cleaning Service
We keep our hotels “hospital clean” with disinfectants and other methods.

There is a term used to describe the type of cleanliness we look for in our hotel rooms and facilities, and that is “hospital clean”.  This means that areas have been not only “straightened up” but also made sanitary through the use of sanitizing sprays and other chemicals.  This is of utmost importance for bathrooms and other areas that are a haven for germs.

Thorough Carpet Cleaning

Carpets are another haven for dirt and grime and they can be often overlooked by many cleanliness practitioners.  However we developed our approach in tandem with our friends at NJ Cleaning Services. With all the focus on making the bed, folding the sheets and putting away the dirty laundry, it can be seen why such a thing as both thorough carpet vacuuming and regular carpet cleaning is overlooked.  We, however, do not overlook such a thing.  We strive to keep every inch of our guests rooms carpets free of dust mites, bacteria and other foul elements that populate so many hotels around the country.

No Bed Bugs, Ever.

This is the type of problem that has been, unfortunately, infesting many homes and houses, even luxury ones, throughout the united states.  From the South West to the North East, bed bugs have become a major problem.  Thankfully we have taken proactive measures to insure that we never suffer a bed bug infestation. Here are a few steps we take:

Steam Carpet Cleaning on a Weekly Basis – We do our own steam cleaning which promises to kill bed bugs if they end up making it into the carpet.

Bed Bug Dog Inspection on a monthly Basis – We provide specialty bed bug dog inspection services throughout our hotel.  The dog can smell the presence of bed bugs even in minute amounts, and while we’ve never had a positive test, if we did we would take immediate action.

Regular Cleaning of Bedding and Bed Sheets – Most companies just clean the sheets, while we will clean the bedding itself through the use of steam cleaning technology.  This helps not only eliminate dust, dirt and grime but kills any potential infestation.

We also have several techniques which we keep private so as not to give our competition any edge :)

We hope this will give you some extra comfort to know that our hotels are the utmost example of cleanliness.  Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!



Conquer Your Business!

It’s no fluke: to run your business smoothly, you need to outfit it with smart tools. There are essentials you need to consider, ranging from technical to hiring employees. How do you know it is time to invest in either one?

When you can’t keep the sales pipeline going because you are too busy filling orders!

Simple as that.

Imagine You Are…

…working at a fast food joint.

ALONE.

Imagine, you are taking orders, right? Let’s say you’ve taken five orders. Before you can take the next one, you realize these five need to be fulfilled right away or else, these clients will demand money back or grow pretty impatient.

Now, you start making their orders. Well, now you have people still in line growing impatient while you fulfill the orders.

What can you do?! You are working by yourself!

This doesn’t consider the drive-thru scenario either but hopefully you understand the point here.

Depending on what your business is, you may need to hire bookkeeper goldcoast. This is extremely important as a solid bookkeeper can keep you on the right track, save you hours of time and money, help you stay organized come tax time, and much more. Basically, a great bookkeeper will reduce your panic and keep you sane!

The rest depends. Are you an online entrepreneur? Do you own a shoe store? An eatery or a restaurant? How about the technical stuff like a system to take orders, track orders, a printer/copier/fax machine?

Are you the face of your company, meaning are you the sales machine?

Decide what role(s) suit you the best. What is your mission? What do you do well?

The answers to the above two questions will make or break your business. If you don’t choose your mission carefully, your business will suffer in many ways. An unhappy boss can lead to an unhappy environment, unhappy employees, and lastly, unhappy customers who are your backbone with all due respect.

Decide.

Then, slowly, build your team…. then?

Conquer!

How To Throw A Staff Party That Your Employees Will Love!

lets party

Stepping into the role of a business owner the last two years in a row, successfully, I have had to think of other things to keep the company morale on the higher end. I have worked for corporate giants that only care about what they can squeeze out of their employees… and I definitely don’t want to be that type of employer.

Keeping Your Staffers Happy!

There are several things you can do to keep your staffers happy. Just remember, though, that there is a huge difference in trying to build a good company morale and employees… just being bad employees. If you notice several employees concerned about the same issue, you should address the issue and make compromises or adjustments as necessary. This typically means that the issue is with a company policy, not the employees.

However, if you have one staffer ruining the atmosphere, you need to be quick about addressing him or her. This can kill the morale between the staffers and the company culture can be at stake.

So, what are some easy ways to bring your company employees together and enforce your company culture?

Most people will grown, but the easiest way is to cater a couple of events a year.

If you have good food, team building exercises, an open atmosphere, and company incentives, most of your staff and higher-ups will show up. Also, it is very important that you include everyone in these events: not separate lower level staff from the higher level employees. This can create a bad atmosphere.

You can also throw an outright staff party or few parties! Nothing creates bonds between employees like letting loose, talking about other things that have nothing to do with work. Allowing people to let loose does wonders! In fact, I find the best corporate entertainers and incorporate them into the theme of the party. Remember, if you set the tone, people will follow.



Road Trip Of A Lifetime

This summer, my focus will be on traveling, cars, and writing about my summer adventures in my blog. This summer, for the first time ever, I will be joining my two best friends and we will start in Mexico.

The Road Trip Of All Road Trips!

As I stated, I will be driving to San Diego, to this heavenly spot called “La Jolla”, which literally translates to “The Jewel”. From there on, we will pick up a friend who lives Tijuana and spend a week there, sight-seeing since he is a local there. We will be pooling together our savings so we can buy cheap groceries when/if we camp, stay at hotels and motels (mix and match as needed), pitch in for gas and insurance money, and what have you.

The next thing we will do, after a week in Tijuana, we will head back up to La Jolla and spend another week there, exploring all the fun things and hikes to do in San Diego. I want to visit Torrey Pines Reserve, Cowles Mountain, Three Sister’s hike and that’s after all the local bars I hit up!

From there, we will arrive in LA. We will go here rent a Lamborghini in LA or OC. This is the part of the trip that we are still debating about but I’m confident that experiences like these are once in a lifetime. So what if it’s a bit more on the expensive side?!

When again will we ever get such an opportunity? When again will we ever be this young and without responsibilities again?

Ideally, I’d like to drive a sweet Lamborghini up to Big Sur, at least. Perhaps we will rent it for the day and ride it locally. Just one of the many things we will do!

We will also spend a weekend in Big Bear before hitting up LA. I’ve never snowboarded so I am looking forward to doing this. My friends have snowboarded before and they have agreed to give me lessons.

Other locations on the list are: Palm Springs, Big Bear, Monterey, Morro Bay, San Francisco, and possibly Seattle. This all depends on how our budget goes, how long we choose to spend on each spot, and the activities we may opt for. Some of the activities will include water boarding, boating, fishing, camping, coastal driving…

Let’s see what else we will be up for!

Getting Over Your Fears By Doing Your Favorite Activities

http://killerkayaks.com/50-gorgeous-water-images-guarantee-soul-will-fall-love-san-diego/

It’s funny how once I… made up my mind to tackle my fears head on, how my life has changed. Let’s take a very specific example. When I was young, say, around me teens, I developed a healthy fear of water (ocean and pools) as I almost drowned in the ocean a couple of times (they floor gave way without me realizing it).

For a fourteen year old kid, nothing is more terrifying than her lungs filling up with harsh, salt water, and not being able to catch breath.

This unhealthy fear followed me the next few year as I watched my friends and family have fun poolside while I pretended to enjoy barbecuing. I’d flip through my favorite Surfer Magazine and enjoy the pictures but… have comforting thoughts such as, “hope that great white didn’t eat the crap out of him/her!”

False comforts, those are called!!!

What Changed?

One day, a few of my college friends decided to rent out boats and canoes lakeside. These include inflatable floating devices. As scared as I was, I decided to flip more than burgers: I took a fun, little dip with my friends. We ate, we laughed, we swam!

I joined them on an inflatable boat thingy and I loved it!!! Right then and there, my best friend (a Southern California beaut!) told me to check out inflatable kayak reviews. I found so many cool items like tandem kayaks and canoes that I could split with my buddies. In fact, I got the slightly more expensive two person (or well, tandem) kayak and now I’m tempted by this hard-shelled beauty (even though I have no storage options):

heritage
heritage two seater

Now, when I come out to Palm Springs, on the way back home, I make a stop at my friend’s house where I stay for a couple of nights. We both merge together our water toys (my inflatable one, their jetski, and a canoe) and we fish, play, laugh, whatever!

My advice? Get over your fears the best way possible: with your friends who love you, doing the things you love, with an open mind and an open heart :)
