Positive Growth

Contributed by Cameron Hodge

        We were getting ready for a big year. Our small Texas Company had big plans to expand into three other counties. In order to do so, my team was responsible in making it happen with our budget in mind and our dedication to community at the forefront. After much deliberation, the board decided to purchase existing retail space instead of building from the ground up. While both options had positive points, the idea of building when there are many spaces readily available felt wrong for us. In this economic stand still, it only made sense to make our mark in the new counties by filling up the existing space. During this time, our team worked diligently in making our budget work. We discovered amazing energy rates online at energy rates. This was a much welcome break in the search for ways to cut our expenses and make the growth of our company happen without putting us in the red for the year even before the doors opened. We will be holding our first open house in January and another in the spring. We are all very proud to be a part of such an accomplished small business.

Fuyu Persimmons

      I love eating fruits and one of my latest discovery is the Fuyu Persimmon. Persimmon is an edible fruit that resembles a large tomato and has a very sweet flesh. Commercially, there are two types of persimmon fruit. These are the astringent and non-astringent. The one that I like much is the non-astringent type like the Fuyu Persimmon. I tried the astringent Persimmon, the Hachiya Persimmon and I don't like its taste. 

The Fuyu Persimmon in the photo above is Produced of the U.S.A.

Finesse Texture Enhancing Shampoo

      I bought this Finesse Texture Enhancing Shampoo three days ago. It was $2.99 for 17.3oz (that's included the 33% bonus ounces) minus my 20% coupon. I usually change my shampoo after I run out the one that I am currently using. I am really worried about losing my hair because every time I shampooed and conditioned my hair, hair strands are all over our bath tub. So, I started using shampoo only just few days ago. It really doesn't feel good when I comb my hair but the hair strands on the bath tub are much lesser compare to my previous experience with shampoo and conditioner. So for now I will try this Finesse shampoo and will see if it works or not for me.

This product is made in USA
