You might think that religious jewelry looks all the same or that design choices are not good. But if you do, you’d be wrong. Your faith is a serious matter, but how you express that faith doesn’t have to be stuffy and boring. It is possible to express your faith and at the same time show that you possess a personal sense of style. Faith and fashion can go together and finding ways for them to do so gives you a chance to show the world part of what makes you uniquely YOU. - See more at:
“Wait. H2H? I thought it was B2C or B2B. What are you talking about?”
So glad you asked! H2H means Human to Human. Think about it, you are a human being. You have certain characteristics that are wholly unique to you, hobbies that you enjoy during any free time you might have, children you interact with, friends you grab dinner with. Each of these things creates a certain value of which companies need to be more aware.
Making the decision to partner with a debt collection firm is not a decision that business owners come to without a good amount of thought. Taking an equal if not greater amount of thought and research is the process through which a business owner devotes to finding the right debt collectors to assist them.
Debt collectors are not made equally. One of the reasons there are so many regulations regarding the process of collecting debt is due in no small part to a handful of debt collectors that have tarnished the industry’s image. Business owners are looking for a firm they can trust with their customers.
One of the reasons it is difficult for a business owner to bring a debt collection solution into the mix is because of the perceived impact it might have on the clientele. The professionals behind every collection agency are very closely tied to the experience the customer has, which can and should be positive.
Considering the interaction, business owners need to have a very high level of trust that the collection agency will put its best foot forward and treat the customer with professionalism and respect as they arrange for repayment.
Debt collectors are often the target of customer complaints, which makes sense considering it is their job to go after unpaid debt – and nobody likes to part with money. A reputable collection agency is prepared to deal with upset consumers – conflict comes with the territory. However, when you consider which debt collectors you’ll be working with, make sure you know how they communicate with your customers when conflict arises.
What assurances can the agencies you are considering give you in regards to how you can track progress? The best collection agencies offer complete visibility into their processes, which means you should be able to check up on all of your accounts with them at any given moment and see how much has been collected and where each account stands.
Some collection agencies are slow to remit payment back to you once they’ve collected on debt. You should be allowed to set the stage for when and how you get your money back. Also, if you have debts that will need to go to multiple destinations, make sure your agency has the organizational skills to process your reclaimed funds as you see fit.
Finally, make sure the company you select is licensed and bonded in all 50 states. If you partner with a debt collector with boundaries, a portion of your debtors will be off limits and that debt will go unclaimed, reducing the return on investment.

Dynamic investing: It’s new every morning, because your advisor is adapting investment management decisions to your best interests, based on what the market is doing.
In fact, dynamic investing, by very basic definition, means looking at how the market is changing and working toward a strategic view of your portfolio. It means offering you different options based on levels of risk and your personal goals. It also means modifying your investment management strategy when needed, with your best outcome in mind.
Dynamic investing might sound like a natural occurrence, a process that occurs for all clients working with professional investment managers. However, the process can become cloudy if commission remains the end goal of a professional advisor (rather than serving the client’s needs without commission-based motives). It can also become cloudy if you’re working in an environment such as a traditional bank, where the team may have numerous other areas of concentration and may not be willing to evaluate risk in a way that benefits your future.
Dynamic investing can also mean working with a professional investment advisor who has the skills and experience to bring your portfolio back into balance, keeping your goals as the chief focus and the proportions you have in mind for stocks to bonds, for example. Sometimes the goal of dynamic investing can be to level out natural risks and shifts, making changes to both well-performing asset classes and those that are underperforming.
The goals you had for your success at age 45 may not be the same as your goals for age 75. Most Americans are living longer than they may have anticipated, and working with a professional advisor who understands dynamic investing means keeping your personal shifts and desires on the forefront. If you’re beginning to live out your retirement years, you may see some shifts in the amount of income you want to save and spend – different than what you originally expected. In fact, this is what the concept of dynamic investing is built around: flexibility.
Separated from detailed investment strategies and equations, flexibility may be the core ingredient to long-term success with your money. Look for a professional advisor who understands that they can’t (nor can anyone) predict or control market performance – but that they can, however, use the best tools and the best minds to understand various outcomes for you and make adjustments based on the best knowledge available to them.

St. Joseph, Missouri. Everyone knows it is “where the Pony Express started and Jesse James ended.” Or so the slogan goes. But what else is there to know about St. Joseph?
A program that inspires individuals with developmental disabilities to build their confidence and make rewarding life choices is making quite a stir in communities throughout the country, including St. Joseph. Project STIR(Steps Toward Independence & Responsibility) was designed to help individuals with developmental disabilities make their own decisions and choices in life from how they want to live, where they want to work, goals they want to accomplish and all other rights and responsibilities they should seize to make their life the most rewarding.
President John F. Kennedy said, “change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” His thoughts on change can be applied to any aspect of life, including business. Given the frequent technological changes that affect the radiology industry, change is not only tolerated, it’s expected. Radiologists need to manage change and there are companies working to assist them in this endeavor.
Imaging technology is changing along with the entire healthcare industry at a rapid pace. In order to maintain an effective response to the new challenges that the industry faces, radiologists are fighting to stay ahead of the curve. Healthcare reforms demand a certain amount of responsiveness from radiologists. Honeycomb exchange, a software layer that connects disparate digital silos, works to assist radiologists and others in the healthcare industry store and share their medical imaging in a way that lives up to the expectations set forth in healthcare reforms.
OffSite Image Management professionals built the Honeycomb exchange to assist healthcare workers in improving their ability to provide better patient care. Hospital and rural clinics rely on the stability and efficiency that Honeycomb provides them. For hospitals and rural clinics that are still using CDs and film to share patient imaging information, the Honeycomb steps up to bring them into the cutting edge of healthcare IT.
Another positive aspect that these practices will find is in cost effectiveness. The cumbersome CD burning hardware is clunky and often spits out unreadable CDs. Worse yet, these CDs take up storage space in the medical practice and pose a HIPPA risk when they are misplaced or improperly accessed. Honeycomb erases all those worries because it makes the CD burner obsolete.
Instead of mailing CDs to the doctors and specialists, these medical professionals can view the images through Honeycomb on a secure site. It couldn’t come at a better time, either. Digital imaging has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, which has really pushed the need for a DICOM exchange. Using Honeycomb as a solution, medical professionals are able to safely share their images faster across disparate networks than they’ve ever experienced with other solutions.
As the Baby Boomers reach their golden years, the need for medical imaging has become far more in demand than ever before. This generation might have looked to the guidance of only one doctor in their youth, but today they are seeing multiple specialists for their medical needs, which means these specialists need better access to patient data. The Honeycomb exchange provides the access they need.
Other solutions try and fail to deliver the same consistent access to data that Honeycomb offers. The robust health image exchange provided by Honeycomb assists radiologists and doctors in ridding themselves of the manual processes and replaces them with automation that makes their jobs easier. It also improves their ability to do their jobs. OffSite’s focus on vendor neutral archiving, combined with the powerful Honeycomb, helps radiologists not only deal with change – it helps them to excel.
