I think Securus Technologies is doing good work. Yes, the company works within a complicated industry. But I think that the services this company provides our inmates supersede the fact that they make a few dollars in profit in doing so. So long as they keep their moral compass intact, I think Securus Technologies is good for our country.
Securus Technologies innovated video chat services for prisoners and their families. There is all sorts of positives that come out of this technological innovation. And it is so incredibly easy to use with a reasonable price. You just create an account with the company, log on and request a video chat time. You then wait for the time to be approved and you log back in at the appropriate time. This allows you to virtually visit with an incarcerated loved one from the comfort of your own home, at your favorite concert or during special family events.
It is much easier and much more affordable to video chat with somebody in prison than to physically visit them. Most families have to drive hours away from their homes and take days off of work in order to make a visit possible. That travel time also comes with certain costs such as gas and food. And that doesn’t even cover the stressful experience of subjecting yourself to a security screening and waiting inside of a cold, intimidating prison.
This technology is especially helpful for children. After all, losing a parent to incarceration can have the same psychological effect as the death of that parent. Video chat services mitigate any negative impact on the child. The child can visit with her parents in the comfort of their own homes, get help with homework and even invite the parent in during holidays. Securus innovates incredibly useful tools.
Traveling Vineyard is a winery company based in Ipswich, Massachusetts. The company uses direct selling to market and sell the wine to its customers. The direct sellers are known as Wine Guides. Wine Guides pay a onetime fee after which they receive a Success Kit from Traveling Vineyard. The Success Kit contains wine education materials, tasting glasses, ten wine bottles for first tastings and sample accessories. Additionally, Wine Guides and interested people can access information from Traveling Vineyard’s website, which has training and support materials. Traveling Vineyard always aims to be ethical in all its business dealings. It is an associate of the Direct Selling Association. The DSA ensures that its member companies are accountable and follow all direct selling ethical standards. The DSA also safeguards the wellbeing of consumers and the salespeople employed by its member companies.
Traveling Vineyard follows the Party Plan technique of direct selling. In this method Wine Guides organize parties known as Wine Tastings. Wine Tastings are basically free in-home wine tasting parties. Wine Guides leverage their social networks to organize their own parties or via other hosts. The Wine Guides help hosts in organizing events and then showcase various wines to the guests. Guests can taste the wines and they can order wines that interest them. Traveling Vineyard is not a Multi-Level Marketing company. Wine Guides are not paid to recruit new sales people, they only earn money from marketing fees derived from their sales.
Traveling Vineyard makes it very easy for one to become a new Wine Guide. The company provides new members with training and support until they are comfortable working on their own. An added advantage of Traveling Vineyard is that Wine Guides can work from home or anywhere they choose. The path to becoming a Wine Guide begins with an interested individual sending an application to Traveling Vineyard. The applicant is then paired with an experienced Wine Guide who answers their questions and shows them how the job is done. Once the applicant is convinced on becoming a wine guide they are taken to the Tasting Room, which is Traveling Vineyard’s training center. One does not need to be physically present as all the Tasting Room’s content is available online. Traveling Vineyard also organizes an annual conference known as the Harvest Conference where speakers give details on new products and strategies for making successful sales.
As an entrepreneur, Doe Deere began her career selling her own clothing line via an Online marketplace, which is where the brand gained its name based upon the favorite color of Doe Deere. The development of social media marketing is another area where technology has been used to develop the Lime Crime brand based on the success of Instagram posts by the company itself and a loyal group of followers determined to show off just how beautiful the looks created using Lime Crime cosmetics can be. Despite much of her personal success being based upon the advances in Internet based technology over recent years, Doe Deere believes in removing the majority of digital based media and communications from her daily routine as she starts her day.
The morning routine of Doe Deere has been developed over a number of years with the entrepreneur herself understanding how her day can be improved by making sure she gets an average of nine hours sleep per night, a figure Doe has arrived at by understanding the demands of her own body. In terms of the digital detox Doe Deere undertakes each morning, her only concession is checking her calendar to make sure every day begins in a way that allows her to feel secure she will be prepared for every meeting or event she faces; Doe Deere explains her decision to remove the majority of digital communications from her morning routine is done to allow her the time to consider new ideas and plans she will explore throughout the remainder of the day. Doe Deere also keeps open an internal Lime Crime based chat app designed to allow members of the company to remain in touch in a safe and secure way throughout the working day.
Alongside preparing for the business day Doe will face, she also looks to make sure she herself is prepared to maintain the personal image she has developed much of the success of Lime Crime has been based on. Known as the “Queen of the Unicorns” to those who follow the blogs and social media posts of the Russian born cosmetics entrepreneur, Doe Deere spends a large amount of each morning preparing herself to attend her own Lime Crime offices by drinking a large amount of water to prepare her skin to fight against the dry climate of Los Angeles. Although her work as a leading cosmetics producer has led to her becoming a globally recognized figure in the industry, she does not limit herself to using Lime Crime products and recognizes the successful production of makeup products produced by those companies many would see as her rivals.
