New consumer research has found that people using skin care devices are happy with the outcome but awareness is low, offering a great marketing opportunity for companies in this space. The research, carried out by Kline, finds that 7 out of 10 people surveyed that own devices are either "satisfied" or "very satisfied."

New eyelash studio helps women 'wake up pretty'
Evanston Review
Annette Pecora will never forget the first time she ever got eyelash extensions. "I was getting older and I felt like I needed a lift," she said. "From the minute I looked in the mirror with the lashes on, I felt so pretty I wanted to skip. There is something lashes do that is transforming." Pecora's love of her long eyelashes led to The 60's Beauty Lash, the eyelash extensions studio she opened in June with her business partner, Gia Amato-Miller.

Gulf News
Madonna is a fan. So are Brad Pitt, Simon Cowell and Cara Delevingne. Pop star Rihanna even tweeted a picture of herself getting a blast of energy and nutrients through an IV. Celebrities and those in the know don't have time for spas, weeks of detoxing or holidays to rejuvenate. Instead they're hooking up to a vitamin drip for an instant boost 
of the essential vitamins straight into their blood stream.

"Being NCEA Certified first of all, enhances my confidence. I can rely on having a support system. Secondly, I use the NCEA Certified logo on all my promotional material, including my business sign and display ad on a local city bus. My clients have increased confidence in me, realizing that I continue my education and keep abreast with latest developments. They respect me as a professional. I believe in client education and the same information that I gave to clients before becoming NCEA Certified — is now being accepted without reservation. Thirdly, being certified distinguishes me from my competition. I highly recommend becoming NCEA Certified."

By Maria Huntley
Director of education and training at IntrinXec Management Maria Huntley writes: "I recently took 12 minutes out of my busy day to listen to a speech by a former colleague.

I would like to share the key messages I took away from the commencement address with everyone who is looking for that next great opportunity."

5 tips to keep the customer experience momentum going
We've all heard the amazing stories of businesses that "surprise and delight" customers, like the airline that slyly asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas as they boarded their plane, then had those gifts waiting for them when the customers arrived at their destination. These initiatives are certainly great ways to go above and beyond for customers — and they're just plain fun for all involved. But the customer experience must be more than an occasional highlight.

21st century work: Career-readiness isn't what it used to be
The way we think about work is changing. Thinking of jobs, careers and pay is — by some — being replaced with the idea of work, relationships and meaning. Technology and the resulting connectivity are a part of this.
