“Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.” ~Author Unknown
As time passes, it is not only the force of gravity that works against us, but also the accumulation of toxins in our bodies. As the birthdays pile up, so does our toxic body load.
Our environment has changed drastically over the last 50 years: everything is much more toxic now. Our bodies cannot process all these toxins and because of this nearly everyone has toxic buildup in their bodies These toxins assault us by what we eat, what we breathe in, and what we put on our skin. Since the skin is the largest organ of the body is it vital that we are aware of what we apply to our skin. Our skin absorbs everything we come into contact with (it can absorb up to 60% of chemicals) and very quickly at that.
How many personal care products are you using daily? Do you really know what you are putting on that largest organ, your skin?
If you are like most Americans, you use an average of nine products, containing about 126 unique ingredients every day. Theses products contain a dizzying array of chemicals and fragrances, most of them synthetic petrochemicals –with purposefully unrecognizable names - and many of them are potentially toxic.
*Nearly 400 products sold in the US contain chemicals that are prohibited for use in cosmetics in other countries.
*More than 400 products contain ingredients that the cosmetic industry’s own safety panels have found unsafe when used as directed on product labels
Please take a moment to watch the video by Annie Leonard at www.safecosmetics.org.
When it comes to beauty products, the effects of the ingredients they contain can be more than just skin deep. The cosmetics industry uses thousands of synthetic chemicals in its products, in everything from lipstick and lotion to shampoo and shaving cream .Many of these same substances are also used in industrial manufacturing processes to clean industrial equipment, stabilize pesticides and grease gears. And we can all agree that an ingredient that effectively scours a garage floor may not be the best choice for a facial cleanser.
Following are just some of the chemicals commonly found in cosmetics and what they do to us. (For a list of the “Dirty Dozen” please contact me)
Phthalates are a group of endocrine-disrupting chemicals that are found in cosmetics like nail polish and in synthetic fragrance—both perfumes and fragrance ingredients in other cosmetic products. Phthalate exposure has been linked to early puberty in girls, a risk factor for later-life breast cancer. Some phthalates also act as weak estrogens in cell culture systems.
1,4-dioxane is not listed on ingredient labels. It is a petroleum-derived contaminant formed in the manufacture of shampoos, body wash, children’s bath products and other sudsing cosmetics. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has ranked it as a possible carcinogen, and the National Toxicology Program (NTP) has identified it as a reasonably anticipated carcinogen.
Parabens are a group of compounds widely used as an antifungal agent, preservative and antimicrobial in creams, lotions, ointments and other cosmetics, including underarm deodorants. They are absorbed through the skin and have been identified in biopsy samples from breast tumors.
Ethylene oxide is found in fragrances and is commonly used to manufacture popular brands of shampoo. It is classified as a known human carcinogen and is one of the 48 chemicals that the National Toxicology Program (NTP) identifies as mammary carcinogens in animals.
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of chemicals that occur naturally in coal, crude oil and gasoline. One of the more common PAHs is naphthalene. Some cosmetics and shampoos are made with coal tar and therefore may contain PAHs. They have been shown to increase risk for breast cancer.
Lead may be a contaminant in over 650 cosmetic products, including sunscreens, foundation, nail colors, lipsticks and whitening toothpaste. Lead is a proven neurotoxin, linked to learning, language and behavioral problems. It has also been linked to miscarriage, reduced fertility in men and women, and delays in puberty onset in girls.
Many sunscreens contain chemicals that exert significant estrogenic activity, as measured by the increase in proliferation rates of human breast cancer cells in vitro. Studies show these chemicals are accumulating in wildlife and humans.
How can you reduce your exposure? By becoming an informed consumer and educating yourself. Start by doing yourself a huge favor and check to see if the skin care and beauty items you currently use are listed with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. If they are not, don’t despair, for there are some companies out there that are getting it right. And so can you.
This month’s Free and Easy Beauty Tip
People who laugh and smile are very appealing to those around them. Happy people are beautiful, and it doesn’t hurt that optimism boosts your immune system and helps eliminate the toxic effect of stress. So SMILE!

Till next time….Cheers!

#1: Buy local to support yourself
Studies show that when you buy from a locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned business, significantly more of your money is recycled into the community throug purchases from other local businesses, service providers and farms strengthening the economic base of the community.
#2: Keep our community unique
Local businesses showcase the unique personality of our community. One-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of our town.
#3: Be friendly to our environment
Locally owned businesses cut down on the impact of transporting goods. Shopping locally helps the environment as well as your pocketbook.
#4: Local businesses create more jobs
Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally. Small businesses will be the engine to turn our economy around.
#5: Get better service
Local businesses are often more motivated to keep you coming back. Employers often have a closer connection with their employees, than a corporate HR department. These “team players” are interested in ensuring your experience is a good one.
#6: Put your taxes to good use
Small businesses require relatively little infrastructure investment and make more efficient use of public services, compared to nationally owned stores.
#7: Invest in the community
Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, who are more invested in the community’s future.
#8: Support community groups
Non-profit organizations receive an average 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses.
#9: Competition leads to more choices
A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term. A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based not on a national sales plan but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
#10: Encourage future investment
A growing body of economic research shows that in an increasingly homogenized world, entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more likely to invest and settle in communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character.
Why Locally Owned?
Locally owned businesses help the local economy. Chain stores don’t. A study done in Chicago found:
- For every $100 in consumer spending with a local firm, $68 remained in the Chicago economy vs. $43 for spending at a chain store.
- For every square foot occupied by a local firm, local economic impact was $179 vs. $105 for a chain store.
Locally-owned business owners are our friends and neighbors. They have the same stake in the health and success of the community as we do. They participate in the community, giving far more generously than chain stores to youth groups, non-profits and schools. When times are tough, they don’t fire everyone, close down, and flee to their other stores around the country. They stay, because it’s their home.

You should know the local Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), a network of about 1,000 locations in the United States, generally a great place to go for frontline, street-level small-business advice.
The SBDCs offer classes and one-on-one counseling sessions on practical topics related to starting and growing a business. The details vary by state and specific office, but usually you’ll find a good selection of specific classes on topics such as bookkeeping and employee management, offered in a mix of evening classes over several weeks, workshops for half a day or less, one-on-one counseling and longer-term programs.
The SBDCs are financed by three mostly public sources: the federal government (through the SBA), state governments and local education. Details are slightly different from state to state. The fees charged are surprisingly low.
SBDCs are strongest when asked to provide hands-on, ground-level practical advice to people who want to start or grow local businesses. You don’t go to the SBDC for high-level advice on getting millions of dollars in venture capital; you do go to the SBDC for practical advice on dealing with banks, local investors, local regulations, regular business tasks, local marketing, bookkeeping and administration.
Where I live, in Eugene, Ore., a lot of small businesses have been through our SBDC’s two-year, comprehensive night school management courses. The alumni group raves about the results.
This comes to mind because I’m traveling this week to attend the annual conference of the Association of Small Business Development Centers (ASBDC) in San Antonio, Texas. I’ve been a regular at the conference since 1995.
This year I’m going to present a three-hour workshop on teaching entrepreneurship using business planning, an introduction to a complete curriculum we’ve made available to teachers.

The Seven Pitfalls of Business Failure
by Patricia Schaefer
Summary: When you're starting a new business, the last thing you want to focus on is failure. But if you address the common reasons for failure up front, you'll be much less likely to fall victim to them yourself. Here are the top 7 reasons why businesses fail and tips for avoiding them.
The latest statistics from the Small Business Administration (SBA) show that "two-thirds of new employer establishments survive at lease two years, and 44 percent survive at least four years." This is a far cry from the previous long-held belief that 50 percent of businesses fail in the first year and 95 percent fail within five years.
Brian Head, Economist with the SBA Office of Advocacy, noted that the latest statistics are a much more accurate assessment of new business success rates, and that "as a general rule of thumb, new employer businesses have a 50/50 chance of surviving for five years or more."
Better success rates notwithstanding, a significant percentage of new businesses do fail. Expert opinions abound about what a business owner should and shouldn't do to keep a new business afloat in the perilous waters of the entrepreneurial sea. There are, however, key factors that -- if not avoided -- will be certain to weigh down a business and possibly sink it forevermore.
1. You start your business for the wrong reasons.
Would the sole reason you would be starting your own business be that you would want to make a lot of money? Do you think that if you had your own business that you'd have more time with your family? Or maybe that you wouldn't have to answer to anyone else? If so, you'd better think again.
On the other hand, if you start your business for these reasons, you'll have a better chance at entrepreneurial success:
- You have a passion and love for what you'll be doing, and strongly believe -- based on educated study and investigation -- that your product or service would fulfill a real need in the marketplace.
- You are physically fit and possess the needed mental stamina to withstand potential challenges. Often overlooked, less-than-robust health has been responsible for more than a few bankruptcies.
- You have drive, determination, patience and a positive attitude. When others throw in the towel, you are more determined than ever.
- Failures don't defeat you. You learn from your mistakes, and use these lessons to succeed the next time around. Head, SBA economist, noted that studies of successful business owners showed they attributed much of their success to "building on earlier failures;" on using failures as a "learning process."
- You thrive on independence, and are skilled at taking charge when a creative or intelligent solution is needed. This is especially important when under strict time constraints.
- You like -- if not love -- your fellow man, and show this in your honesty, integrity, and interactions with others. You get along with and can deal with all different types of individuals.
2. Poor Management
Many a report on business failures cites poor management as the number one reason for failure. New business owners frequently lack relevant business and management expertise in areas such as finance, purchasing, selling, production, and hiring and managing employees. Unless they recognize what they don't do well, and seek help, business owners may soon face disaster. They must also be educated and alert to fraud, and put into place measures to avoid it.
Neglect of a business can also be its downfall. Care must be taken to regularly study, organize, plan and control all activities of its operations. This includes the continuing study of market research and customer data, an area which may be more prone to disregard once a business has been established.
A successful manager is also a good leader who creates a work climate that encourages productivity. He or she has a skill at hiring competent people, training them and is able to delegate. A good leader is also skilled at strategic thinking, able to make a vision a reality, and able to confront change, make transitions, and envision new possibilities for the future.
3. Insufficient Capital
A common fatal mistake for many failed businesses is having insufficient operating funds. Business owners underestimate how much money is needed and they are forced to close before they even have had a fair chance to succeed. They also may have an unrealistic expectation of incoming revenues from sales.
It is imperative to ascertain how much money your business will require; not only the costs of starting, but the costs of staying in business. It is important to take into consideration that many businesses take a year or two to get going. This means you will need enough funds to cover all costs until sales can eventually pay for these costs.
4. Location, Location, Location
Your college professor was right -- location is critical to the success of your business. Whereas a good location may enable a struggling business to ultimately survive and thrive, a bad location could spell disaster to even the best-managed enterprise.
Some factors to consider:
- Where your customers are
- Traffic, accessibility, parking and lighting
- Location of competitors
- Condition and safety of building
- Local incentive programs for business start-ups in specific targeted areas
- The history, community flavor and receptiveness to a new business at a prospective site
5. Lack of Planning
Anyone who has ever been in charge of a successful major event knows that were it not for their careful, methodical, strategic planning -- and hard work -- success would not have followed. The same could be said of most business successes.
It is critical for all businesses to have a business plan. Many small businesses fail because of fundamental shortcomings in their business planning. It must be realistic and based on accurate, current information and educated projections for the future.
Components may include:
- Description of the business, vision, goals, and keys to success
- Work force needs
- Potential problems and solutions
- Financial: capital equipment and supply list, balance sheet, income statement and cash flow analysis, sales and expense forecast
- Analysis of competition
- Marketing, advertising and promotional activities
- Budgeting and managing company growth
In addition, most bankers request a business plan if you are seeking to secure addition capital for your company.
A leading cause of business failure, overexpansion often happens when business owners confuse success with how fast they can expand their business. A focus on slow and steady growth is optimum. Many a bankruptcy has been caused by rapidly expanding companies.
At the same time, you do not want to repress growth. Once you have an established solid customer base and a good cash flow, let your success help you set the right measured pace. Some indications that an expansion may be warranted include the inability to fill customer needs in a timely basis, and employees having difficulty keeping up with production demands.
If expansion is warranted after careful review, research and analysis, identify what and who you need to add in order for your business to grow. Then with the right systems and people in place, you can focus on the growth of your business, not on doing everything in it yourself.
7. No Website
Simply put, if you have a business today, you need a website. Period.
In the U.S. alone, the number of internet users (about 70 percent of the population) and e-commerce sales (about 70 billion in 2004, according to the Census Bureau) continue to rise and are expected to increase with each passing year. In 2004, the U.S. led the world in internet usage.
At the very least, every business should have a professional looking and well-designed website that enables users to easily find out about their business and how to avail themselves of their products and services. Later, additional ways to generate revenue on the website can be added; i.e., selling ad space, drop-shipping products, or recommending affiliate products.
Remember, if you don't have a website, you'll most likely be losing business to those that do. And make sure that website makes your business look good, not bad -- you want to increase revenues, not decrease them.
When it comes to the success of any new business, you -- the business owner -- are ultimately the "secret" to your success. For many successful business owners, failure was never an option. Armed with drive, determination, and a positive mindset, these individuals view any setback as only an opportunity to learn and grow. Most self-made millionaires possess average intelligence. What sets them apart is their openness to new knowledge and their willingness to learn whatever it takes to succeed.

A business plan is the cornerstone of starting a business as well as a significant tool for monitoring the progress and growth of your company. Below are 10 key reasons why you should have a business plan.
1. To Attract Investors. Before investors can decide whether or not to back your business financially, they will need to know as much as possible about how the business will operate and how their investment will be spent.
2. To See If Your Business Ideas Will Work. By writing a business plan and outlining each aspect of your business, you can determine if your idea is actually viable.
3. To Outline Each Area of the Business. A business plan will provide an overview of all aspects of the business. You will be able to detail the who, what, where, when, and why of your day-to-day business operations, costs, and projected profitability.
4. To Set Up Milestones. By forecasting where your business will be in six months, one year, or five years, you are not only letting potential investors know your plans, but also setting up realistic milestones for yourself and your employees.
5. To Learn About the Market. Researching, analyzing, and writing about the market not only provides you with an overview for the business plan, but gives you greater insight into the overall market.
6. To Secure Additional Funding or Loans. Your business plan can demonstrate that you have met goals and illustrate the company’s growth and need for additional funding.
7. To Determine Your Financial Needs. The process of writing your business plan will force you to analyze your financial picture.
8. To Attract Top-Level People. Your business plan will give talented people an overview of your business.
9. To Monitor Your Business. A business plan should serve as an ongoing business tool that you can use to monitor your progress.
10. To Devise Contingency Plans. While business plans often include some contingency plans, by virtue of having the document available, you can see how and where you can make such changes relatively quickly if, and when, necessary.
And don't forget that some day you may want to be able to sell your business for top dollar. Then you will want to read "Five Ways a Business Plan Can Help Sell Your Business!"
Luckily, you don't have to figure out how to create a good business plan by yourself. There are tools to help you. Read the AllBusiness.com Buyer's Guide "Tools that Can Help You Write Your Business Plan" to learn about business-plan templates, wizards, and other helpful software.

The many ways hiring interns can add value to your organization
There are many ways hiring interns can add value to your organization. They can minimize the impact to your hiring budget. They may work on projects that need to be completed that free up your experienced employees to work on more complex assignments. Oftentimes interns will bring new ideas and energy into an organization. They may even become great full-time employees who are already trained in job functions and are therefore immediately productive.
When considering a Paid Internship, be thinking of the following:
* Even though you are required to only pay the Federal or State minimum wage, consider the education and knowledge of the students you want to hire.
* Consider the job requirements, skills and responsibilities necessary for your internship. Will your intern need to perform basic skills, or will they be asked to perform duties that require a higher level of expertise?
* If you are not sure what the fair market wage is for the position you want to fill, make a quick call to your local college or university and ask for the career development office, or contact another local business to see what they pay. Most employers are happy to share information with you.
When considering Unpaid Internships, be thinking of the Department of Labor's Criteria:
Federal and State Laws dictate whether a particular job is considered an internship or a paid worker position. Although the Department of Labor doesn't use the word intern, or provide a definition of such, they have developed criteria to determine if a learner/trainee is a paid employee entitled to minimum wage and all other applicable laws, or a learner/trainee that is unpaid or paid a stipend. The definition of employee differs from labor laws and workers compensation state laws as well. Please be sure to check all applicable state laws in addition to federal regulations.
The 6 criteria developed by the Department of Labor that must be met in order for the positions to be an Unpaid internship are:
1. The training, although it includes actual operation of the facilities of the employer, is similar to the training which would be received from a vocational school.
2. The training must be for the benefit of the intern.
3. The intern must not displace regular employees, but work under the close observation of a regular employee or supervisor.
4. The employer provides the training and derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern, and on occasion, the operations may actually be impeded by the training.
5. The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the end of the internship.
6. Both the intern and the employer understand that the intern is not entitled to wages. A student may be able to receive a stipend however.
All of these criteria must be met in determining if the intern is a paid employee or a learner/trainee.
Of these 6 criteria, three of them are very straightforward:
* #3 - the intern cannot displace regular employees
* #5 - the intern is not guaranteed a job at the end of the internship
* #6 - the intern is aware and has agreed there are no wages due
The other three criteria are more open to interpretation. Be sure to verify state labor laws. Other areas to be considered when hiring a student are Federal and State Child Labor and Workers Compensation Laws.
Once you have developed a job description and the wages have been determined, be sure to let your employees know that you are hiring. Employees are oftentimes the best source for referrals. And don't forget to spend your money wisely. Interview the interns like you would a full-time employee. Do a few reference checks with their prior employers if possible, or contact a professor. The job may only be for the summer, but if you hire poorly, it can be a long summer.
The best contacts and resources to help you get it done
Contact local colleges and universities
Many colleges and universities have departments dedicated to getting their students out in the field through internships and jobs. Developing a good relationship with these institutions can lead to a very beneficial relationship on all sides. I recommend:
Getting a list of local colleges at one of the many online directories. Any major search engine should have complete listings, visit this Yahoo!
directory for more information.
Specify what kind of intern you are looking for
when looking for a new intern or new hire one of the most important aspects is making sure that the job description, and what you want out of the prospective employee/intern are accurate. Many times recruiters will try to sell the job instead of trying to match it to the right person, this leads to false expectations and can lead to low retention. I recommend:
Taking a look at some sample job descriptions and general tips on a free site, such as this one found on About.com
. You can also visit online human resource compliance services such as HRSentry
for this and all other HR related issues.
Don't treat them as "the intern"
Good interns are made to feel as part of the team and given meaningful tasks that will challenge them. If all you want an intern for is to take care of your busy work then it will be a painful experience for both. I recommend:
Assign a mentor who is willing and able to interact consistently with the intern. This will give the intern someone to turn to with questions they may have. Read about the The Importance of a Good Mentor
to find out more on what benefits can be expected.
Goal setting is a very important part of the internship experience. It gives the intern the ability to feel as though they contributed. Assigning interns to tasks that they will never see the outcome is not nearly as effective. Good goals will excite the intern and give them confidence to take the position to the next level, employment. I recommend:
Developing an internship program that includes goal setting for the intern. This should be done with input from the intern. This will allow them to feel included and respected right from the start, as well as providing a custom learning experience. Resources on goal setting can be found at the free online Management Library
Provide effective feedback
Upon leaving the internship, an individual should be given feedback, both good and bad. With good interns it can be tempting to sugar coat their downfalls and present them as flawless. Taking the time to provide constructive criticism and tips for the future while recognizing their achievements results in a much more effective experience. I recommend:
Checking out the benefits of conducting employee reviews in this article on benefits of self-reviews
, or going to the Management Library
