Relationships: Teach Him To Be The Man You Want Him To Be – (Exercise, Discipline, And Affection)

What if Cesar Milan, The Dog Whisperer has it right. Could applying his principles to your own relationship allow you to tame your wild dog of a man? Could “Exercise, Discipline, and Affection” be all you need to create a relationship that is loving and satisfying. Let’s see…

Exercise. In Cesar’s world, Exercise is critical for a dog to burn off their excess energy. Exercise in this case isn’t just about exercising your ‘s about exercising you, too.

To quote the immortal words of Elle Woods in the movie Legally Blond, “She couldn’t have killed her husband. Exercise creates endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands. They just don’t!” If you’re happy, all of those quirks that your man has that bothers you now, may not bother when you’re happy. Being happy makes you more attractive, makes you look younger and makes you more fun to be around.

Discipline. For Cesar, Discipline is about creating “rules, boundaries and limitations.” Enough said. It’s your responsibility to teach your man about acceptable behavior. They don’t show up knowing this stuff. If your man is doing something you don’t like, kindly and gently teach him what is acceptable. Rubbing a dog’s nose in his accident on the carpet won’t keep it from happening again, just like yelling and screaming won’t teach your man the right way to behave. Do your training early and do it quickly. As my friend Joseph says, “Kill the monster while it’s a baby.” It’s always easier to break a baby-size habit, than it is to break a gigantic Godzilla-sized habit

Disciplining your man may be the hardest part for you. When your man looks at you and says “I’m Sorry,” you’re going to want to give in and let the bad …

Marketing to Women – Understanding How Women Make Their Purchasing Decisions

Women take the cake when it comes to buying power in a household. We control about 80% of the purchases that come into our homes, so if you are involved in marketing to women it is very important to understand how we make our decisions.

Marketing To Women: 4 Important Things You Must Understand To Effectively Market to Women

1. First, when marketing to women, you need to understand that a huge part of our purchasing decision is based on trust; if you are not taking the time to form a relationship with us and build our trust than forget it. We are much more likely to buy from someone who is personable and shows a genuine interest in us and our needs. Once we feel like we have found this, we can become some of the most loyal customers you will ever have!

2. On the subject of loyalty it is important to note that we are far more loyal than the male consumer. We can be extremely finicky as to whom we turn over our hard earned money to, but if you prove to us that we are valuable and respected as your customer, we will almost always be back. Keep this in mind when marketing to women because we talk (yes I know, a huge surprise!) and a woman who is completely satisfied will share her experience with other women, personally and online. This “word of mouth” can bring in more customers for you. Of course it works the other way to; if we are disappointed with our purchasing experience we usually tell twice as many people than if we were satisfied.

3. One of the biggest mistakes people make when marketing to women is focusing on facts and figures. We are interested in these, …
