Bob Reina is someone that has worked hard for many years to get to where he is in today’s world. He often speaks about the many years and he worked his way up. It’s hard not to be impressed by his accomplishments, his hard work, and his dedication to building Talk Fusion and becoming the CEO. While others didn’t necessarily understand or believe in his ideas right away, he was steadfast in his approach. He had an idea and he stuck to it, no matter what anyone else had to say. I admire a man with conviction and someone that stands up for what they believe in, even if everyone else looks at them like them with doubt and disbelief.
Let’s face it: we live in a busy world today and sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day and we need something to make it easier to get things done. That is what Talk Fusion is all about and why it has grown the way it has the past couple of years. When you run a business, there are no vacations. It is 24/7 and you must commit to it at all times and keep up with it. Even if you are on the go or running late or stuck on the train, you can still do business. Nothing can stop you. They have associates in over 140 countries, so this company is only going to grow, especially with this free trial.
Wikipedia is one of the most visited sites in the world. An entity’s Wikipedia page plays a key role in their reputation. Getting content approved when you make a Wikipedia page can be challenging as it must abide by Wikipedia’s formatting, referencing and style requirements. Once approved, other challenges can present themselves. Because Wikipedia is open sourced, what happens if someone decides to make edit a Wikipedia page maliciously? Sales could fall and a reputation could suffer.
Take the “Spot the Dog” Wikipedia page, for example. Eric Hill is the author of a successful series of children’s stories called “Spot the Dog”, which caught the attention of the BBC television network who then picked it up and turned it into an animated TV show. In 2010, the Spot the Dog Wikipedia page came under attack by malicious Wikipedia edits. Eric Hill’s name was demoted to a pseudonym and author credit was given to Ernest Hemmingway. Spot, the main character, was depicted as a troubled, cigarette smoking alcoholic. Wikipedia was notified and the edits were corrected, but the page came under similar attacks this year.
Is Wikipedia worth it? The site may require Wikipedia revisions and could never accept your submission, though it can be done. Once your submission is accepted and your page is up, you will need to monitor it regularly on your own for malicious editing. The second option is to hire Wikipedia editors from a company to write and monitor the page for you. For example, Get Your Wiki does both. The team of professionals from this Wikipedia writing company take the headache out of submitting and monitoring on your own. Professional writers experienced with Wikipedia’s formatting guarantee swift publication approval. Once published, their team will monitor, in real time, for inaccurate edits. Furthermore, they will translate the page into any language desired to ensure a business or other entity can reap all the benefits of Wikipedia page creation. While some prefer to save money and do it themselves, hiring Wiki writers from a company could save you time, stress and prevent the marketing for the character of your next children’s book series from being libeled into an alcoholic, chain smoking, barfly.

Wen (http://www.wen.com/chaz-dean.html) cleansing conditioner was tested out by an editor for Bustle for the purpose of a week-long experiment to see what effect it would have on fine, limp hair. The editor had seen the famous Wen by Chaz infomercials and was curious to see how the hair care product would stand up against the challenge of her admittedly fine hair. Although she loves to try out a bunch of different hair care and beauty products, she had yet to discover the right match for her own hair. After one week, she was generally pleased with the results from WEN and definitely recommends the cleansing conditioner as an effective hair care solution. As you can clearly see from the before and after photos, WEN lived up to its reputation for being able to transform all different types and textures of women’s hair.
When celebrity hair stylist set out to design a cleansing conditioner, he wanted to make a product that actually made hair healthier from the scalp to the root with each use. He had experienced plenty of products from his years in the hair care industry and was generally unimpressed with what was available on the market.
The Wen by Chaz Dean cleansing conditioner allows women to replace a myriad of hair care products with a single bottle that can make their hair feel and look better every time they use it. It can and should be used on a daily basis to lock in moisture, add volume, cleanse the scalp, repair split ends and detangle all different types and lengths of hair.
Chaz Dean has done the hair of celebrities like Charlize Theron and Nicolette Sheridan to name a couple. He created the hair product line, WEN and has aired hundreds of hours of QVC infomercial time promoting the products. Wen products are about giving hair a luxurious feel without all the products and chemicals. The main star of his line is the cleansing conditioner which is basically your one stop do it all in one step product. The crazy thing about using this product is that it doesn’t lather. Most people are so use to that bubbly lather as a tell tale sign your hair was clean. Chaz believes that his product doesn’t strip the hair of natural oils like that bubbly lather does.
Emily McClure is in the hair care industry and decided to try cleansing conditioner for one week on her very fine hair. (http://www.bustle.com/articles/136320-i-used-cleansing-cleansing-conditioner-on-my-fine-hair-heres-what-happened) She recaps her daily findings on bustle.com and how it worked best for her.
