BellabeatProduct_LEAF_facade-RESIZE-600x338

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus? Maybe. But one thing is certain, they are built differently. That’s why apps and wearables have a wide margin of error if they are created with both sexes in mind. They can miss gender specific topics, and that’s where Bellabeat comes in.

BellabeatAPP-Combo-Shot-600x500Bellabeat, a company dedicated to creating innovative and beautiful technology for women, today announces the Limited-Edition LEAF, the latest in smart jewelry that monitors women’s activity, sleep, stress and ovulation. The LEAF seamlessly combines a stylish piece of jewelry with innovative health tracking technology, particularly its mechanism for tracking breathing in relation to stress levels, to provide women with wellness data and recommendations through the LEAF app. Check out the LEAF in action here.

As you continue to use the LEAF, it becomes smarter by learning your personal habits and tailors feedback accordingly.

  • The LEAF monitors stress levels by measuring the rise and fall of your breath when worn as a necklace. This breathing data is cross-referenced with stress level entries you input into the LEAF app and, over time, the app learns how your breathing correlates with stress.

MOVEMENT

  • The LEAF monitors daily activity by tracking every movement you make. The data syncs with the LEAF app where you can view your progress in an instant.

SLEEP

  • The LEAF monitors sleep by tracking the small movements you make while in bed, learning how long you spend in each stage, and determining how long and how well you’ve slept.

REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

  • The LEAF assists with monitoring your menstrual cycle, and even reminds you in the days leading up to your next period. Women trying to conceive are able to identify ovulation days to increase their chances of successful conception. By cross referencing your daily activity in the LEAF app with your menstrual cycle, women are able to better understand their health trends during this specific time.

Navigate Today’s Entrepreneurial Landmines Without An MBA

We definitely believe in the value of a good education, and an MBA is a good part of that toolbox. But if you do not have one, and one is not on the horizon, then you can still survive and thrive in today’s business environment.

Basler-BusinessSurvivalSays says Ed Basler, a veteran entrepreneur and CEO of E.J. Basler Co, “Hard work, working smart, listening and abiding in the examples of those who’ve been successful are the keys to success in business.”

According to Basler, author of The Meat & Potatoes Guide to Business Survival: A Handbook for Non-MBA’s & College Dropouts, “these are some business strategies that can be employed regardless of education:

• Respect the power of your vision. It may sound hokey to some, but not to dreamers like Walt Disney – another giant who succeeded without a degree. In fact, those who criticize the dreams of visionaries are those who’ve either failed or never dared to dream in the first place. To put it simply, big vision = big results; small vision = small results; no vision = no results. Never mind the naysayers. Listen to those who have something to say, including those who fully support your dream, and those who offer constructive criticism. Talk it out with anyone who’ll listen. Be open to improvement.

• Fly with eagles. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Join your industry’s trade association. It is a wealth of ideas, information and networking opportunities. Meet the leaders in your fields. Join your local Chamber of Commerce and find a seasoned experienced mentor. They can be found.

EdBasler• Never pay retail. In some ways, a college degree is retail. There’s no guarantee that you’ll get the expected result, such as a good job, but you certainly pay a financial price. In business, frugality pays. The easiest and most frequently cited price is usually one that can be improved. You can buy office furniture at a store, or you can cut those prices by half or more by going to an auction. Always be on the lookout for a more cost-efficient way.

• Use a checklist. No, this is not an app or a new way of thinking about business. Instead, it’s an old, tried, tested and true way of accounting for the most important things that need to be done. As the leader of your business, you need it, but you should also encourage everyone under you to keep a list, too. If something is worth doing at work, then it’s worth the extra daily reminder. Put the most important item at the top and then check it off once done. This lets you know with certainty that the task has been accomplished and clearly indicates what’s needed next.

• Deadlines orient your attention to goals with each passing hour. What if President John F. Kennedy did not announce his ambitious deadline on May 25, 1961, to safely send a man to the moon by the end of the 1960s? We may never have made it. Ambitious deadlines foster excitement for accomplishment. Our attention as human beings is prone to wandering. Deadlines guide us back to our ambition.

• There’s no end to improvement. There’s no end to improvement. Everything you are currently doing can be improved. Ignore this at your own peril. Your competition believes this and is ready to pass you up the moment you become complacent and settle for the status quo. If you are not growing in innovation, quality, and customer service, you may soon find yourself out of business.

FLARES App answers the Big Question – Where are You? – without Texting

 

Flares_Screen_Shots_August_2014

 

Where are you?” is one of the oldest questions since the telephone was invented (think about it… not much of a question before the telephone since you were standing right in front of them). But nowadays, sometimes you want and need to know quickly, and without a lot of drama or texting.

Flares_Sending_Group

Enters, “Flares.” Flares is a new mobile messaging service that enables you to shoot visual signals to your friends and family to let them know exactly where you are – when it matters to them the most. The signal works just like a real flare! Flares are accessible for 60 minutes after sending and viewable for up to 40 seconds before expiring from the recipient’s phone

Use them to indicate a meeting spot, let everyone know you’re running late, pester a sibling to get a move on, coordinate drop-off and pick-up locations… Flares can be used anytime you need to quickly send a signal that you care.

 

Q: Is this only for adults, would it work for families on vacation or shopping?

FLARES: Flares was designed to be a universal mobile messaging protocol based on visual cues- particularly when texting is less effective or not as safe. Today, one can try to explain to their other family members where they are at a ski resort or shopping mall, for example, or simply shoot a flare to all of them as a group in less than one second.

You can update friends and family that you’re stuck in traffic without the unsafe distraction of texting while driving. Flares isn’t just easier than texting, it’s much safer as well.

Q: What is the code base for the app (language)

FLARES: Flares was written in Objective C for iOS 7.0+ mobile devices (iPhone and iPad). The Android version is currently in development and scheduled for an October release.

Q: How long did it take to develop?

FLARES: 5 months.

Q: Do you do all of the development in-house?

FLARES: Server-side development and technical architecture is built and maintained in-house. Client-side iOS engineering was completed by a contact-team based in China with specific expertise in interactive UI experiences. Moving forward, client-side engineering will also be conducted by a FlareWorks in-house team.

Q: What kind of privacy setting options are available?

FLARES: Core privacy is built into the concept of Flares which features a custom-designed, double-trigger, expiry technology. Location flare maps are available for a limited viewing time (40 seconds) before disappearing. Also, if a Flare is not viewed within 1 hour, the flare data (personal location information) will also automatically disappear.

Q: Was there any external funding for the project?

FLARES: To date, Flares has received a small tranche of angel funding from prominent investors based in San Francisco, Seattle and New York City. The company is currently raising a venture seed round of funding.

Flares_location_signal

Q: Is the app also the entire company’s current product line?

FLARES: Yes, Flares is the flagship product developed and published by FlareWorks, Inc.

Q: What’s next?

FLARES: Our short-term focus is on perfecting the current user experience surrounding the use of location flares. This visual device is a communication technique that is less about “where you are” and more about “what where you are communicates to those with whom you share a context”- family, friends and work associates for example.

Ultimately, a flare is a signal that can mean anything the user intends-

Did you pick up the kids?

Did my daughter arrive safely at JFK?

I’m going to be 10 minutes late., etc.

We’ll then propagate the Flares experience across all major smartphone platforms, then open up the service on a global, localized basis.

Version 2.0+ of Flares will incorporate other signal types including customizable flares, photo/video flares, audio flares and note-based flares (for context setting).
