The New Stacy Lattisaw – Been Through the Fire and I’m Not the Same Girl!

In 1980 when young Stacy Lattisaw belted out the hit song, “Let Me Be Your Angel”, she had no idea that the lyrics would be prophetic.

Fast forward to today, we have Stacy Lattisaw-Jackson, the Minister and Motivational Speaker, CEO, wife of 19 years and mother of two teenagers. Speaking to Stacy was gratifying because she knows where she’s been, what she has, and where she’s going. Her purpose and passion was clear as she told me “I’m Not the Same Girl” which is the name of her book. “The closer I get to God the more I know what his plan is for me”. Stacy is the CEO of Believer’s Building Bridges; her company published her book and is also the home to her Youth Empowerment Program. Stacy is on a mission to reach children. She holds conferences and youth events, encouraging children to finish school, convincing them that they don’t have to follow the crowd. She challenges them to stand up and be leaders. She also teaches on the principle of integrity and not being afraid to support abstinence. “There are not a lot of role models for our children today, so I try my best to stand in the gap for a lot of them”. Her heart goes out to those that are being bullied “I had a hard time in school. Because I was very light, I was called white girl and yellow girl. I was quiet, shy and somewhat timid, so people took it as being stuck up.” Unfortunately, after she became a child star it got worse. “You know when you reach a certain level of success everyone is not happy for you. And a lot of time the opposition comes from our own people.” Not only did she have to worry about students, but now she had teachers joining in, “I was 15 and grown women would look me up and down and talk about what I had on to each other.

“I would turn in my test papers and they would say they couldn’t find it; anything to harass me.” Eventually Stacy’s parents had enough and decided to home school her. She went on to be a star.

After her crossover, mainstream status with “Love on a Two Way Street”, “Miracles” and “Let Me be your Angel”, Stacy was taken under Narada Michael Walden’s wings producing five hit albums that led to her signing with Motown in 1986.

It was at this time that Stacy begun to see things that disheartened her. “I realized that I was deep within an industry that had a lot of crooked people in it.” “My daughter Kayla wants to get into the industry, she sings and writes songs. But I will not push her out there; in fact, I encourage her to wait until she gets a little older. I want her to enjoy her childhood and prepare for the industry life.” Stacy said, “I had an enjoyable experience being a child star but it’s a lot if you are not prepared.”

I understand a lot of what Michael Jackson went through as a child star. “I was fortunate to open up for the Jackson Family tour which was a huge opportunity for me. I actually got a chance to talk with Michael, a time that I will cherish as long as I live.” She reflected on the childhood she never had. “I didn’t know how much I missed growing up until one day when I took my son Kevin to one of his games. I was sitting in the car just watching them have teenage fun and my mind took me back. I realized that I never went to any school dances, or proms, and never attended any school games. I was crushed and cried right there in the car.”

Traveling on the road can be a lot and when you’re 15 it can be gruesome. There were sad moments when, “I was forced to leave my family and fly 20 hours away to an event in Africa. I was tired and I didn’t want to go. I sat and cried because I was exhausted but I still had to go.” And then there were funny memories “like the time I was on stage, and I forgot the words to the second verse. I had to play it off and make up words.” “Now this was one of my hit songs so everyone in the audience was singing the right words and I was singing the wrong ones.”

“I guess everybody was saying what is that she’s singing,” as she laughed. At this point, they had Stacy on the road at least 4 nights out of a week. “We had fun but we were tired a lot.”

It wasn’t until she recorded, “Where Do We Go From Here”, with Johnny Gill that she realized she was not ready to be in the music business. Although her mother traveled with her on the road, they all had very limited knowledge of the industry. “We were being robbed. This was a hit record on billboard for several weeks at #1, and we were told that we only sold 30 or 40,000 records. We both knew that could not be true. Johnny was going to have the company audited, but I knew it was just time for me to leave the industry. I told them to go ahead and keep my part of the money.”

Stacy eventually left the industry after marrying a consistent sound engineer by the name of Kevin Jackson who was determined to be in her life forever. “My husband was my sound tech at the time, and our first date was at Pizza Hut,” she laughs, “He took off from his business and we dated for 11 days straight. Six months later we were engaged, six months after that we were married.” She talks about their relationship, “divorce with us is not an option. There is no perfect marriage, and we have had our share of arguments but we are God fearing and respectful to each other. The secret to a successful marriage is two forgiving people.” Seventeen years later they have a thriving business and he is particularly supportive of her ministry. She is currently in the studio working on her Gospel Project and will be announcing the launch of new music in the future. “This time I am prepared. ” Stacy encourages everyone to “learn the business you want to be in, tap into your gifts and talents, find out what you are good at, and don’t give up. Some people give up right before the break through comes. Get to know who God is and you will get to know your purpose.”

“Stacy, what do you want people to leave knowing about you?”

“I want them to know the real me. I didn’t get a chance to show that on some programs, like the piece on ‘Unsung Hero’. And that’s one of the reasons why I wrote my book. I want people to know that I am not the same girl, I have been renewed!”

Men’s Diamond Tennis Bracelet – The New Trend in Gifts For Men

When shopping for gifts for men in your life, jewelry is not often the first thought. But, if you’re tired of buying ties, coffee mugs, power tools, and baseball caps, a men’s diamond bracelet could be the perfect change of pace. Contrary to trends of the past, jewelry is not just for women and men’s jewelry has been a growing trend for quite some time. It is an ideal way to dress up a casual outfit without compromising comfort. Luxury accessories are no longer reserved for women, and men are no longer limited to shoes and belts to freshen up their wardrobe. The accessories focus on durable, masculine materials combining gold, silver, diamonds, steel and other substances that can keep up with a man’s daily life.

One of the most simple, but classic, items of jewelry is a high quality bracelet. No matter what his interests or hobbies, you’ll be sure to find a style he’ll love. A men’s diamond bracelet can add a touch of masculine style to any look. From the office to the golf course to a night out on the town, this statement piece can add a sophisticated, fashion forward accent.

Given their name because of a professional tennis player, tennis bracelets have been a popular accessory for generations. It was important enough to interrupt match play to recover then and it is versatile enough for everyone now. A men’s diamond tennis bracelet can add a contemporary style to not only a professional athlete’s wardrobe, but also the everyday man. Today, many actors, athletes and musicians have made accessorizing with jewelry a common trend. With encouragement from popular men’s magazines, these trends have become accepted and appreciated worldwide. Not just for the rich and famous, men of all ages, lifestyles and tastes are becoming more inclined to accessorize with jewelry. To answer this new desire for jewelry, many manufacturers are now creating lines which exclusively cater to the needs of men.

Diamonds have long been considered a girl’s best friend, but now more than ever, men are wanting some friends of their own. These diamond accents aren’t only for rock stars, sports stars, or those on the edge of fashion, but for the average guy as well. A classic men’s diamond tennis bracelet is a great way to add an elegant, but masculine shine to any look. They are quickly becoming the new staple item in men’s accessories as they are comfortable enough to wear every day, but sophisticated enough to wear to a black tie affair.

8 Spring/Summer Women’s Fashion Trends You Will Fall In Love With

Spring is here, which means summer is right around the corner. So, how does that affect our wardrobes? Getting dressed during the time of year when it is not that hot anymore – but not chilly either can be quite tricky. However, a few key pieces can smoothen the transition – and maintain your comfort level on cold mornings as well as warm afternoons.

According to last year’s preemptive runways, we will be looking at a season filled with delicate pastel shades, whimsical frills, lots of plastic, among others. Let’s take a look at the top 8 spring/summer women’s fashion trends that you are sure to fall in love with.

1.P astels

Hardly unfashionable, but generally overshadowed by their Crayola counterparts, sherbet shades are making a major comeback this summer. And instead of accessorizing or accenting a look with just one piece, the runways have verified the power of head-to-toe pastels. Whether pink, lemon, or lilac, you can expect to see a range of fashion’s prettiest shades this season.

2. T-Shirt Dresses

A T-shirt dress is an ideal wear for the in-between weather because it acts as a perfect layering piece. It is light enough to wear under sweaters and jackets, and also looks fantastic on its own. There’s no better way to kick-start your spring day than by throwing on a casual t-shirt dress and pairing it with your favorite accessories. This clothing item has become a versatile go-to wardrobe must that easily earns style points, regardless of the occasion.

3. Maxi Skirts

Tights are so last month, but it is still a little cold for a mini skirt. However, a skirt with a longer hemline, such as a ruffled maxi, will prevent your legs from getting exposed to chilly winds (and also acts as a good cover-up if you just have not gotten the time to get a tan yet). You can easily pair a maxi skirt with a plain T-shirt and suede or faux leather jacket.

4. Power Shorts

Ah, shorts! So basic, so bland. Simply hiding in the back of the drawer just to be pulled out for a lazy Sunday night. Or so you thought. The spring/summer fashion trends for 2018 have already experienced a rise in the Statement Shorts. St. Laurent’s high-waisted leather shorts and Louise Vuitton’s silky boxer-style shorts, along with an array of other tailored power shorts are something to look forward to this season.

5. Embroidered Tops

An embroidered top with a little cold shoulder action going on can instantly update everything in your closet, from jeans to skirts. Plus, it makes an excellent layering item under jackets and sweaters.

6. Checks

When we think of checks, winter comes to mind. This year, however, checks are everywhere. Whether they are neutral, pastel or punchy, if your wardrobe has anything in the geometric print, then rock it today while it is trendy. You can find simple ginghams at Loewe, while blue plaid shirts at Alexander McQueen, and bag checks outfits at Mary Katrantzou, along with an array of other designs at Fendi, including checked tights.

7. Satin

During the London shows, satin was the most prominent fabric for two whole seasons. First and foremost, its sheen immediately accentuates any silhouette; and second, its innate lightness and fluidity make it an incredibly comfortable option to wear throughout the night. Designers from Roksanda and Chris Kane opted for liquid evening dresses and gowns.

8. Jumpsuit

Whenever it is one of those lazy mornings, a jumpsuit is your best friend. That’s because it is a one-stop shopping – you just need to put it on and voila! You are all set to go. Plus, they are polished enough for work and at the same time casual enough for regular events. With so many options featuring minimalist styles, bold prints, menswear-inspired tailoring, and much more, there is a jumpsuit for practically every occasion, from work and travel, to even black-tie events.

So there you have it – 8 trendy and stand-out fashion options that will likely have a big impact on your wardrobe choices this season. Get ready for spring with a killer closet!

Violent Crime Trends in the U.S.

The nature of violent crime is the loss of life, or the maiming and/or destruction of a life to such a degree that the victim seldom, if ever, recovers fully from the incident.

Another aspect of the nature of violent crime is, in this writer’s view and experience within the system, the lack of and/or failure of, for whatever reasons, of rehabilitation. The thought process among those who deal with violent offenders particularly Correction Treatment Specialists is that most violent offenders cannot be, rehabilitated. That mind set has become an overwhelming “nature” of violent crime.

The extent of violent crime has crossed all boundaries of society to include social, biological, psychobiological, and environmental issues that run the gamete from education to poverty. As a result of the extensiveness of violent crime, the criminal justice system is hemorrhaging a plethora of theories to explain the whys and wherefores of violent crime.

Within the biological spectrum, the main issue is believed to be, genetically based criminal tendencies in that these tendencies may be passed on from one generation to the next. Additionally, it is believed, that within this theory “at least some human behavior is the result of biological propensities inherited from more primitive development stages in the evolutionary process”. Frank Schmalleger, Criminal Justice Today, Chapter 3.

Social issues seems to be the most ardent factor affecting violent crime although, in this writer’s opinion, social issues only fan the fires of biological and psychological factors. The most common social issues believed to affect violent crime are where a person lives in a community, i.e. the wrong side of the tracks, poor education or lack thereof, poor parenting or lack of parenting, minimal resources to enrich life, etc. Take these social issues and apply them to individuals with underdeveloped or absence of cognitive skills, bad role models, little or no accountability to authority for inappropriate behavior, minimal or no absolutes established as a compos for acceptable social behavior, and learned behavior within the family and home, and you have an atomic bomb named “violent crime” painted on it.

Unfortunately violent crime is no longer a definitive issue of the poor and uneducated but has extended to well known media personalities, i.e., OJ Simpson, Robert Blake, Mike Tyson, just to name a few.

Today’s trend in violent crime according to an FBI report June 4, 2007, “crime is inching higher in the U.S.” The nation’s murder rate rose slightly last year but the number of robberies skyrocketed by 6 percent, preliminary FBI data released Monday show. The statistics were part of an overall 1.3 percent rise in violent crime across the country in 2006 – the second straight annual increase. However, car thefts, arsons and other property crimes dipped for the second straight year, the data show.

As of this writing, the United States ranks number 9 on the list of 65 for crime at 0.301318 per 1,000 people.

Hippie Headbands: A Hippie Fashion Trend

The 1960’s gave rise to a hippie subculture which was originally a youth movement throughout the US. Not only did it spread to other countries, but it has had resurgence in recent years for young and old alike. Such shows as That 70s Show are no doubt partially responsible, but the fashion industry has taken note, and we are seeing hippie headbands, and fashion everywhere these days.

Both men and women in the hippie movement wore jeans and maintained long hair, wore sandals or went barefoot. Men frequently grew beards and women refused to wear makeup and bras. They wore brightly colored clothes in unusual styles which included bell bottom jeans, vests, tie dyed clothes, dashikis, peasant skirts and blouses, and those famous hippie headbands which they adopted from the Native Americans. Additionally they adopted styles from Asian, Indian, African and Latin American cultures.

Hippies were known for wearing handmade clothing because their beliefs included defying corporate culture. Because of this they not only learned to make clothes; they bought them from flea markets and second hand shops.

Many may not know that the hippie scene actually rose from the beatnik scene of the 1950s. The ideologies were originally the same as well as the values.

Hippie fashions and values completely changed our culture, influencing music, television, literature and the arts as well as morals and religious beliefs. As you might imagine, tons of hippie clothes, ideals and other aspects of hippie culture have become part of our mainstream culture today. From church movements to cultural diversity, the concepts have been accepted more and more over the last several decades.

The hippie music festivals is only one of the many celebratory ways we embrace the effects of the hippie culture in modern times.

At these festivals hippie symbols and iconography are everywhere including the peace sign which can be seen on peace clothing, tie dye clothing, hippie jewelry, other forms of hippie fashion, and even the occasional peace sign tattoos.

Girls are known to wear gypsy skirts, which are peasant skirts, or broomstick skirts, often tie dyed and hippie dresses of similar fashion. Hippie tapestries are often draped or cut and sewn into dashikis or dresses as well.

In particular there were a myriad designs of hippie headbands. These bohemian headbands were often braided out of leather or fabric of most any type. The chic headbands of the 1980s were a throwback to them, but the 60s headbands were not typically elastic like those of the 1980s. The fashion trend included the use of bandanas or a simple cord tied around the head in various styles. These boho headband accessories didn’t have to match an outfit in particular, and therefore often had personal meaning or were worn as either a statement or to commemorate something in many instances.

The sight of the hippie headband was a sure sign in the 60s that a hippie was in your presence. This often brought derision from those who withstood the morals of the hippie movement. Their hippie clothes and head wraps were then seen as the costumes of foolish youngsters. Now people want to know where they can find a hippie store!

The hippie bands at the festivals wear clothes and headbands often made more modern with some type of new fashion flair. The popular piercings add a new twist to the hippie look, as well as dreadlocks often sported by neo-hippies these days.

Fashion changes, but hippie headbands, fashion, clothes and music are here to stay!

Wholesale Fashion Jewelry – 5 Shortcuts to Retail Success

Something in the human spirit is always itching for independence and this itch translates to a constant flow of new entrepreneurs that so often gravitate towards fashion jewelry. What is so irresistible about this accessory? Beyond the high profit margins that wholesale fashion jewelry can open for retailers lies an intrinsic beauty that creates truly wearable art. Yes, wholesale fashion jewelry offers plenty of profit potential that enables retailers to turn small investments into the longest mark-up in the fashion industry, but the magic of fashion jewelry’s beauty stops consumers in their tracks and this magnetic attraction, more than anything else, brings the entrepreneur into retail sales specializing in jewelry.

Many of these new fashion jewelry businesses begin on the simplest level with retailers buying wholesale fashion jewelry and presenting it to friends and co-workers. Easy sales and new found profits ignite a fire to grow the business, but what step comes next? As a twenty-five year veteran of the wholesale fashion jewelry industry, I have seen business after business start in this way and often grow to become the major supplier of fashion accessories in a community. The learning curve never ends as fashion jewelry evolves as well as retail tactics, but some things never change and these key techniques will have positive impact on your fashion jewelry business.

But first, how are you going to sell your treasure of wholesale fashion jewelry? Outgoing personalities love the active sale. Visit businesses, do parties, set up in flea markets or craft shows, and bubble over with enthusiasm as you introduce stunning fashion jewelry to consumers. All they need is a crowd and permission to set up. Bingos, festivals, school picnics, car shows, sporting events-the list is endless. Overhead is low and actually stops when not engaged in sales activities. But so does sales, so many prefer brick and mortar businesses with a higher overhead, but continuing business even when you’re not there.

The quieter, methodical personality may not be up to this bubbling enthusiasm and choose a passive sales mode. Successful businesses often build without the entrepreneur ever engaged in active sales to the consumer. They connect with beauty shops and other locations to provide fashion jewelry on consignment with the owner profiting as well as the entrepreneur. Methodical personalities think out the details like how to handle shrinkage of missing items with no sales recorded. Increasing price and lowering consignment fees compensates for losses when fashion jewelry has open exposure that can result in more shrinkage. The flip side is reduced sales in secure environments like showcases or behind the counter, which reduce shrinkage, but unfortunately, also sales.

Okay, both personalities have a selling method they are comfortable with and both can expand their business with online marketing by working on websites while their sales support them as the websites grow, climbing higher in the results of major search engines. But what about the 5 shortcuts to retail success? They boil down to pricing, selection, presentation, knowledge, and benefits.

-First comes pricing the wholesale fashion jewelry. New entrepreneurs often feel shock waves as they see the wholesale cost compared to retail prices they paid as consumers. The first temptation is undercut all the competition. Stop there!-because fashion jewelry is cyclical and low prices generate low profits that don’t carry retailers through the tough times. Do you want to spend all your earnings on restocking wholesale fashion jewelry and covering overhead? Of course not, you want to grow your business and make a profit and pricing is important.

Retail uses a term called keystone-a nice word for doubling the wholesale price. Make keystone the minimum for mark-up in fashion jewelry and look for the items that give you room for far longer mark-ups. The upside has no rules. Let your intuition guide you because prices can always come down, but it is difficult to go up.

-Next comes selection and this is a factor that major retailers like fine department stores are always struggling to get right. Stroll through one and you will see they have reduced staff on the floor so selection often has to sell itself. The fine department stores need “no miss” choices and have resources, forecasts, statistics, and trained buyers to make these decisions. Small retailers don’t need to be discouraged because this isn’t rocket science and you are closer to the clientele in your location than any major retailer.

Making the perfect selection rests on the age and demographics of your main customer base. Add this to the fashion trends of the season and you are close to perfect. How do you keep up with all those rapid changing fashion trends? Well rapid change is a myth. Trends change very slowly-often over a decade. Yes, colors and subtle adjustments occur every season, but today we are in the midst of classic trends that started in the early 21st century and have a promising future. More on this when we cover knowledge.

-Now for presentation-making the fashion jewelry look special. Ever notice how necklaces clumped together on a tee bar on top of a showcase seem to scream “I’m on sale” while the stuff in the showcase whispers “I’m special”. That’s presentation and how it has changed even for fine department stores.

Teri Agins in The End of Fashion details how department stores that were once “the first visual contact with fashion” and “introduced merchandise concepts to customers” changed in the late 20th century to a collection of brands. Agins quotes one upscale shopper who “was appalled when she discovered $19.99 Nine West shoes displayed right next to $350 Chanels” in her favorite department store that was compromising its image of elite fashion. Make an item look special and it takes on the perception of higher value.

-Next comes knowledge that is worth more than price. Don’t believe it? Think of items you bought because the sales person impressed you with a deep understanding of the product. That was worth more than price. I personally experienced this lesson when I did a trade show with a colleague. I told my customers the fashion jewelry was a real value at the price. His sales person painted a word picture of the wholesale fashion jewelry with the season’s apparel and wrote more orders without the customers even knowing the price.

Knowledge is knowing the trends and knowing the item. Consumers trust a well-informed source and when you know what is today’s style and why it looks right on the customer, you remove the burden of choice from the buyer.

Knowledge today goes deeper because classic trends in fashion jewelry bring gemstone components, shell, Murano style glass, Millefiore, and more to jewelry designs. A story is worth volumes in explaining glass jewelry and knowledge of gemstones that removes the doubt about whether it is real. Don’t be overwhelmed about understanding the trends and knowledge of today’s components because everything is detailed in a report, Wholesale Fashion Jewelry-The Magic of Trends (find a link to the report at the foot of this article).

-Finally there are benefits. Think of benefits as vision-what the customer envisions. Anyone that buys fashion jewelry wants to make a positive statement. They want a look that is flattering and appropriate. So like the car commercial running on the radio, features describe the details like length, color, texture, and shape while benefits say “matches apparel while complementing your complexion”, “draws attention to your slender neck”, or “creates a youthful look that is so you”. The old adage of sell the sizzle, not the steak, gets to the point. Pick the right item for the customer, be sincere, and sell the sizzle.

Will all this work in a slowing economy? Absolutely! In worrisome times women appreciate an escape valve of some small new purchase. What fulfills this better than fashion jewelry? Apply the five shortcuts and lift your customers’ spirits with a feel-good experience.

Playing for Hot and Cold Numbers in Roulette

A “hot number” is supposed to appear more often with each spin whereas a “cold number” appears least often. As the wheel spins one way and the ball the other, is there a chance the ball will land on your hot number? Statistically speaking, there is a one in 37 chance of this happening.

So is it instinct, luck or even logic that will fill your pocket with chips and cold hard cash? First of all, don’t rely entirely on luck. That’s like giving into the house before you even sit down at the table. According to some theories, there are numbers that hit more frequently. These hot numbers can be found by looking at a post of the last numbers to hit. If a number comes up three or more times, it’s a hot number. This could be a winning streak you want to join in on, although some would argue that your odds stay the same no matter what numbers you choose, hot or cold.

But hot and cold trends do exist and many roulette players swear by them. These small windows of opportunity offer the player a chance to win by closely following trends that encourage picking out hot and cold numbers. For example, when a number that has not come up for a while finally appears, it’s still considered a cold number. Watch this number to see if it comes up again and if it does, a trend could be forming. Whether you’re playing in a Vegas casino or online, roulette is a popular choice for players because of the relative ease with which the game is played. But it’s not really fun if you keep losing. Although there is no guarantee you will ever win a spin of roulette, there may still be some truth to picking hot and cold roulette numbers. It just takes discipline and self-control and lots of observation. Deciding how to bet will determine your outcome, whether you win or lose – so bet smart.

If a hot number comes up 5 or 6 times, the probability of it coming up again and again diminishes. And if a cold number suddenly starts coming up, there may be a probability it will come up 2 or 3 more times. But, the same can probably be said of your birthday or anniversary or the lucky numbers you always play at kino. This is where your smarts come in, this is where you decide between going forward and standing still, this is where you practice self-control and self-discipline. Ultimately, the best way to play roulette is to have fun with it while observing techniques, trends and luck.

Trend Trading Strategies For Binary Options

Most financial speculators who utilize binary options have followed so called trend trading strategies with binary options as methods for optimizing their returns. Trend trading binary options refer to watching the gains and losses of the chosen market, and figuring out the opportunities for the momentum to continue or reverse. It still relies on the original binary format, but adds the wisdom of market flow concepts from careful monitoring and applying basic principles.

Fiscally defined, the word 'trend' relates to the overriding path that the value of a plus point travels, which is either over one or more time sections. Lesser term trends subsist as elements of more fundamental trends that last for various lengths of time. It is imperative to recognize the movement over the interval and comprehend the bigger picture before deciding to buy and sell.

The popularity of trading trends is attributable mostly to the ease of setting bets, as well as the comparatively small outlay and quick as well as high turnarounds, which are possible. Added to that, casual traders and hopeful investors are showing more interest in opportunism afforded by current economic markets. Some platforms are reporting earnings from trend trading binary options in excess of 82 percent of the time, consistently.

Since trend trading with digital options is not a finite system, the kind of wisdom it collects to collect consistently massive profits is not something that can be taught without incorporating experience. It behooves investors, for this reason, to learn to restrain their immediate sentiments and instead keep calm before selecting their next move. Reactionary bets throw trend trading triumphs to the wind.

Most authorities in Forex, as well as those in digital options trading, advise avoiding the elephant approach that has the investor dumping heavily in one place. Diversifying funds is just as important in binary option trend trading as it is anywhere else. That, and reserving your bets to right money, or disposing fund.

One distinct type of options trading is the pairing method. With this system, which is best for limiting venture, the strategist splits his stake between put and call selections. In this way, a specified amount is fail-safe revenue, depending on if the trade times out amid the chosen amounts. Neverheless, complete profits can be the reward for an accurate call.

Strategies like the double-trade are best employed by investors who are in the black, and well on the path to producing revenue. This approach funds a pair or more trades concurrently. The result is protection against a total lose by potentially bringing in returns from the supplementary fund.

One more trading strategy used for digital options is the reversal trade. Before the clock runs out, if a rapid plummet or climb in the cost of the particular product becomes noticeable, the individual may switch the option to counter a prejudice profit range.

Factors Affecting Designer Handbag Sales

Let’s ask a question. What are the factors that lead to the demand and supply of designer handbags? Did you know for instance, that the sale of designer bags remained intact even during the recession in 2008? This happened because these bags are mostly bought by affluent people. In a way, this means that luxury handbag sales are less likely to go down by worldwide recession and more by preferences.

Exquisite handbags have been a growing trend for a long time. But other than the core economics, sales of exquisite bags fluctuate due to several market oriented factors and consumer’s behavioral shifts.

Let us take a look at a few of these factors.

  • Fast Forward Fashion: Today, fashion trends come and go in a matter of days. There are new luxury bag styles every season. In many ways, globalization has hurried the trending cycle of lifestyle products even more. Changing fashion trends in commodities like luxury bags affect sales considerably.
  • Consumer’s tastes and preferences: Sales of any commodity is by large dependent on the tastes and preferences of the target consumers. The handbag has to be unique for it to be considered by the ultra-rich.
  • Microeconomics behind raw materials: The raw fabrics out of which handbags are made, have a distinctive color, texture and feel. It is those basic ingredients that sparks the buyer’s interest. There is also a change in demand of these materials while a buyer is choosing a designer bag. That change reflects in the overall sales of the product.
  • Pricing: Pricing of a product plays a very crucial and strategic role in creating demand as well as generating sales. So is the case with luxury bags. Often, pricing is used as a tool to target different income class of the society. Over pricing can adversely affect sales in the lower-income groups. Under priced products can be tagged as not exclusive enough by the higher income consumers. Designer houses are looking to concentrate on the higher middle class and rich people – so do not expect the price of these bags to come down. There are some variations and those are caused by the increased number of shoppers who are buying products from wholesale designer handbag websites. These sites market and sell wholesale designer handbags at discounted prices.
  • Availability: If supply is insufficient to meet the demand of a particular product, it is bound to pull the sales down. The availability of luxury handbags is a very important factor to find the best buy. Consumers tend to pick a substitute product in case of unavailability.

The above factors are important while the buyer plans and seeks execution of certain price targets in terms of exquisite handbags.
