Got Clues? Insight Into The Life Of A Real Private Eye by Francie Koehler

Francie Koehler, a great grandmother, accomplished private investigator, and radio talk show host completes Saint Leo’s online criminal justice degree program.

Saint_Leo_University_OnlineFrancie Koehler, 73, devoured Nancy Drew books when she was young. While fascinated by the adventures of the feisty, independent teenage detective, Francie never imagined herself as a super sleuth tracking down clues and solving mysteries.

Fast forward to 2016 and that’s exactly what Francie has been doing for nearly three decades.

Working as a licensed private investigator, Francie has earned numerous awards for excellence in her field. She has served on investigator committees and association boards, and offered countless hours volunteering her skills to industry-worthy causes.

This spring, the mother of five, grandmother of 16, and great grandmother of two, adds another accomplishment to her distinguished resume: an online criminal justice degree from Saint Leo University.

How can you harness Cupid’s arrow to bring more love into your life? Whether it be romantic or familial, we all crave acceptance. In T42 and Health Matters, Heather Brittany and Cynthia Brian investigate the language of love.

One of the most popular ways to show we care is to give those we love flowers. Florists sell more bouquets at Valentine’s than any other time of the year. Depending on what message a person wants to convey, there is a flower and a color that corresponds to the emotion. As we walk the gardens, we’ll discuss floriography.

Thom Hartmann Says $10.10 Is “Magic Number” For Minimum Wage

“There’s no such thing as a free market,” says Thom Hartmann. The radio and television host recently delivered his third annual “State of the Union” address, where he outlined his plan for a more progressive America. Among his points: raising the minimum wage.

Shortly after his speech, Hartmann appeared on The Costa Report to explain why $10.10 is the “magic number” for a minimum wage increase. The national minimum wage today would be at $12.50 if it had been indexed to inflation from 1968 to 2014. “We’ve seen an actual collapse in the purchasing power of the minimum wage,” said Hartmann.

By failing to raise the minimum wage, Hartmann claims the federal government has allowed major U.S. companies to “game” the system by paying workers just enough to qualify for free government services and subsidies. As an example, Hartmann points to a recent study from the Center for Economic and Policy Research which found that one superstore retailer store costs taxpayers $1 million a year in subsidized employee benefits. Hartmann says that raising the minimum wage to $10.10 would put this practice to an end by forcing major corporations to pay their employees a “living wage” – one which does not allow workers to become dependent on food stamps, welfare and Medicaid.

But Hartmann’s plan is not without its skeptics, including critics who argue that a wage increase will be passed down leading to higher consumer prices on essentials such as food, gasoline, etc. Hartmann responded to this viewpoint by saying, “there are ways to mitigate the harm while you’re advancing the benefit.”

Why Do We Do Dumb Things?

Why Do We Do Dumb Things?

doing dumb things

Why do we do dumb things? On this morning’s InsideOut Forum Discussion call, we became aware that we do so many dumb things, not just a few. We saw that we all do many of the same dumb things. We all want to avoid seeing and feeling the pain of others, because we might be challenged to DO something, whether helping them or leaving them. We find our alternatives daunting or frightening, so we avoid reality. Of course, the consequences are brutal. Take global warming as an example. We want to avoid taking action of a very painful situation, but as one woman pointed out on the call, it sets us up to feel the pain for longer! What are the dumb things YOU do? Can you relate to the examples shared on today’s call? Read our blog and share your thoughts and experiences in a venue that welcomes you to be real!

From Distribution of Goods to Distribution of Experiences; From Ordinary to Extraordinary

We now have more singles than married households. The retail industry stuck to the big box approach over the years despite a shrinking middle class, graying baby boomers, rising debt, multiple decision makers in the households, and the millennials with different spending habits.

“Retail has been hacked”, Doug Stephens, the retail insider and futurist, summed up the current state of the retail industry when he was on the Business Reinvention show last week for the discussion, The Retail Revolution And the Road to Remarkable.  But are online retailers really invincible? Do traditional retailers have a chance to thrive in the future? Many have blamed the down fall of the retailers on the emerging technologies, but Doug pointed to the changing social and economic trends as drivers for the fundamental shifts in the retail industry.  We now have more singles than married households. The retail industry stuck to the big box approach over the years despite a shrinking middle class, graying baby boomers , rising debt, multiple decision makers in the households, and the millennials with different spending habits.

In his new book, Retail Revival – Reimaging Business in the New Age of Consumerism, Doug offers refreshing insights and recommendations for the retailers. To survive the retail revolution, retailers must transform their business models from distribution of products to distribution of experiences. Some of the innovative stores are already doing so. New York’s A Startup Store features merchandise from startups. The store changes products and physical designs every 4 to 6 weeks, taking the concept of Zara to the next level. Another example is Guest Chef, a restaurant in Oakland, California, that hosts a new chef every 2 weeks to create a sense of surprise for their patrons.

“The purpose of retail will no longer be to solely convert every customer into a buyer of goods but rather transform them into disciples of the brand itself.  To begin a relationship – a dialogue that may play out in any number of buying channels; online, in-store, mobile or elsewhere”, said Doug Stephens. Physical stores are less about transactions but will increasingly about building a pre-sales and post -ale relationship with the customer.  “Stores will become media, and media will become stores.”

“Consumers aren’t merely buying what you do or how you do it.  They’re also buying why you do it”, Doug pointed out. Retailers have to ask themselves why they exist and what they stand for, because that’s why customers buy from them. When you create a reason for consumers to want to go to your store, they will become your media. Traditionally, retailers have to launch a marketing campaign to drive traffic to their stores. In the future, the store will need to create a clear brand to attract customers who would then become their marketers when they are impressed with they see.

The purchase path is becoming unpredictable.  Doug argued that retailers will have to deliver remarkable experience in order to stay competitive.  Being average is no longer an option.  Doug predicted that “at high-end merchants, stock clerks, cashiers and inventory counters will be replaced with technology. The front line salespeople, however, will be higher performing professionals who are paid considerably more money than today.” To learn more about the implications for the CMOs, COO, and CPOs, download the podcast or tune in to the discussion online.
