*Tips for Keeping the Love Alive

Husbands and wives need to spend quality time together not just on valentines day but at least once a week.  The daily cares of life, paying the bills, doing chores, work, can take its toll on the marriage putting a strain on the relationship. 

Time for undivided attention, talking on matters geared towards having the same mind, peppered with fun and laughter is essential in keeping the love alive. 

*Artistory: Meldy's Inspirations

Coming up with new product designs every month is not a piece of cake but Papemelroti designer Meldy does it with ease.  What's her secret?

She is the "ME" in "PA-PE-MEL-RO-TI", meaning she comes third in the family of 5 siblings.  The acronym comes from the first syllable of the siblings' names in order of appearance - PA stands for Patsy, PE for Peggy, MEL for Meldy, RO for Robert and TI for Tina.  They all design for the family business.

*Resellers' Corner: Knowing Your Customer

Having your own business means making your own decisions and taking risks.  You don't necessarily have the luxury of consultants at your beck and call.  The direction of the company lies solely on your shoulders.  How do you know what the customer wants and needs?  What products should you invest in? 

This is where knowing your customer plays a big part.  Developing an open line with your customers allows you to build a strong relationship with them and they are likely to be more loyal to you if they see you respond to their suggestions and requests.
