A Dogs Journey Through Omaha

K-9 Excursion Through Omaha Nebraska

Last month me and my dog ventured out to the Elkhorn River Omaha to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. These are a few fun things we experienced.

Doggy Adventures

There aren’t a lot of public parks/places that allow dogs, so finding an adventure took some time. We hiked first off grid along Chalco Hills trails and had some fun exploring the area. After that I wanted to take him to a dog park, so we headed on over to Hefflinger Dog Park where he ran with other dogs and played for an hour. Afterwards, we were both ready for a little nap, so we went and checked into our hotel at the Sheraton Omaha which was very accommodating of my dog.


After a healthy “cat nap” we decided it was time to see who was who in the zoo. We headed on over to the Henry Doorly Zoo and checked out the underground caves that exist there. The Zoo is an animal lovers dream. There are over 7 acres of indoor exhibits. My dog thoroughly enjoyed prancing around the zoo with me checking out the other animals. After the Zoo, my dog was hungry so we headed back to our hotel off of 108th avenue to order in some delivery. I didn’t have my doggy dishes with me so he was eating off of the floor for the night.  I ordered pickup from Sullivan’s Steak House and it was amazing! I bought a bone-in steak that was cooked to perfection. After I finished the steak though, I gave my dog the leftovers. It was the best Omaha Steak I ever had! My dog knawed on that bone for the next two hours while we digested our meals in the park, laying in the grass, listening to some music.

Rested And Off  To Elkhorn River Omaha

dog in elkhorn river omaha nebraskaAfter some down time in the park, he was ready to play fetch. We headed over to the Elkhorn River where we played fetch and swam for hours. I had purchased a new fetch toy from Amazon before we came out here. It was a dog football and I felt like one of the best Husker Quarterbacks of all time! Well, that is a bit of a stretch, but I would throw that ball into the Elkhorn and the dog would jump in the river like he was a Cornhusker wide receiver! Dogs are amazing, and if you get outside with them and take time to train and prepare them for the public spotlight, they thrive in that environment. So full of love, and they have tails that won’t stop wagging. I am a huge dog lover and Omaha was an amazing place to travel with my best friend / dog.

Not So Good Journey Home

They say that all good things come to an end, well that was true for our vacation as well. After day 3, my dog became sick and wouldn’t eat his food. In fact, any food he did consume was immediately thrown up. I searched for ways to settle my dogs stomach with household remedies but was unable to get him to keep his food down. I searched for the best Veterinarian Omaha had and found an emergency vet clinic to take him in on short notice. It turns out when we were at the Elkhorn river he ingested a rotten fish carcass. This caused him extreme stomach cramping wich led to the vomiting and inability to keep his food down. The veterinarian pumped his stomach and got it all out. When he woke he was a hungry puppy. They gave him a big bowl of Iams Dog Food and he wolfed it all down. And of course, he was able to keep it down. Now that I was able to keep him in the car for the road trip home we packed to leave in the morning.

Home Safe In His Dog House

After a day and a half of travel home, we finally made it. He was so excited to be in his on bed. He crawled inside his dog house and laid there like it was the best place in the world to be. His tail even wagged for what seemed to be an hour straight. The neighbor dog jumped the fence and came for a visit also. Those two dogs will play all day long if we let them. To be home without a leash, and outside of his travel kennel made him the happiest puppy on earth. I have to agree with my dog, there’s no place like home!!

How To Make Your Business Website Sexy To Customers

Now why you think the obvious answer would be the one I tricked you with to get you here and it’s not. In fact this is a tactic that many companies use to entice Sexy Website Designerpotential new customers into their funnel and try to stuff promises and shiny awards they won down their throat but lack any substance whatsoever. I know, I wish it was as easy as getting a half naked women to wear your logo on something that wouldn’t fit any adult but that’s not where the real sex appeal is. It’s not the icing on that cake that makes it, it’s the cake… What kind of social path just eats icing.

Substance Will Kill Flash in The End

What your company stands for and the service you provide your customers with create the movement that you have been desperately looking for. Now how do you get your companies website to convey they to your potential buyers and fans? Simply put, tell your story. Your company doesn’t exist to solely transact business and collect as much money as possible and if you think it does then this will be your last year in business. You started out with a purpose in mind, maybe you saw a place where you could make an impact, a way to better things or maybe even an innovative idea that your thought the world needed to know about. Whatever your start was needs to be your story. It needs to connect your customers to your cause and give them the opportunity to not only buy what your sell but to believe what you believe.

Okay Great, But How Does That Look On My Website?

Now you’re asking the right questions, it’s simple but not easy so let me break it down into steps

  1. Get rid of the clutter – So many people have their website designed to shock and amaze people and lose all sight of what’s really important
    1. Who is this company?
    2. What do they do?
    3. Why should I care?
  2. Connect first, sell later – A very easy way to do this on a high level is through video. Nothing conveys a story/message better than video, even as you’re reading this you’re thinking “I really wish this was just a video I could watch..”. I’ts not because you’re one of those kinesthetic  learners, everyone is. It’s easier to really capture what someone is trying to say when they are sitting there actually saying it to you.
  3. Commit to your product – You only stand behind things that you believe in, unless you’re one of those social paths I talked about earlier that can eat only the icing off of a cake then you won’t be able to really represent something unless you believe it’s what people need.

Finally, go into action. Not the kind that people say “Wow Jeff you really put in a lot of work today”. I’m talking about the kind of action that actually makes people afraid to talk to you because they know that if they know that you’re operating on a higher level.

3 Ways To Fix Your Dying Business

Re-branding Yourself

So many companies get caught up in their own story, the fact that they were successful in the past has no bearing on their success in the future. If you don’t evolve in today’s world then you die. Just look at some the major brands like Coke, Ford or even Apple, all of these companies look to be on the same path they started out on but look a little deeper and you’ll be surprised. While Apple has focused on evolving their products to transform the way the world works, Coke has focused on transforming the way that consumers see their product and how it fits into their lives. The one consistent thread they all share is change… rebrand isn’t generally the first thing business owners think about when sales start to plummet. But sometimes, when products and business aren’t positioned properly, a rebrand is necessary to solve that problem.

A rebrand that will successfully jump-start your business isn’t going to be as simple as changing your logo. Your entire brand’s approach to how it positions itself in the market will need an overhaul to see a major impact.

An example of this is Old Spice’s rebrand. Before 2003, the men’s deodorant market was pretty docile and the marketing was nothing like it is today. When Axe began to successfully position themselves as the scent that women couldn’t resist, Old Spice, a failing brand at the time, had to reinvent their image. Read more…

When You Try To Stetch Too Far…

This happens a more often than not when we see brick and mortar businesses try to take a leap from local service to marketing a product or service online. If you think you will be able to sell the world on dodge challenger racing stripes
your brand overnight then you’re dead wrong. Start with what you know, for instance this local pin-striping company turned it’s service into a kit and only started with a few products for a dodge challenger then built from there

When a business owner tries to do too many different things, it can cause the business to stretch itself too thin.

In other cases, a lack of focus could mean the target niche is too broad. When your target customer is “everyone”, it’s really nobody. This is why getting really specific with your target customer is important. Do you really know who your customer is?

If you do, does your business lack focus? Is it trying to do too many things, or be the best at too many things?

In 1996, after operating at a financial loss for years, Steve Jobs returned to a failing Apple. What Steve Jobs saw was that Apple was losing focus and was involved in too many projects. By 1997, Steve reduced Apple’s product line from 350 to just 10, killing off many projects including the promising Newton project, a project that drained $100 million from Apple according to Cult of Mac.

When You’re Playing Too Safe!

Finally don’t be afraid to take risks, it’s never going to happen if you don’t reach for something. A lot of people are scared away from investing money into their business because they don’t know if they will see a return. If you do your research then you most definitely. Check out our post on how to choose the right seo company.

Many business owners believe that during a time of crisis, their best option is to play it safe. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Taking bold risks is often the best course of action to save a dying business.

When you think about it, you have a lot less to lose when your business is nearing its end. You’re much better off trying new and crazy things than being conservative. Read more…



Why You Should Forget Everything You Learned About Plastic Surgery

What if I told you that cosmetic surgery has now caught up to the microwave oven as far as efficiency… Don’t believe me then listen to this, their are now breast augmentations being done faster than you can get through the line at Chipotle. Not your average chop shop… Not only are these procedures designed to get you in and out in record time but with the promise of having you back to work within an hour.

Plastic Surgery - Breast LiftWith his InstaBreast technique, Norman Rowe, a New York plastic surgeon, is playing fairy godmother to women temporarily seeking larger, fuller breasts, but his handiwork also lasts for only one night. In about 20 minutes, you can go from flat-chested to cleavage-proud. Rowe’s method is remarkably simple: He designates a site at the edge of each nipple, and after the area is anesthetized, he injects about a half-liter of sterile saline solution—essentially salt water—into the patient’s breast tissue.

Cinderella’s fairy godmother turned a tattered dress and a pumpkin into a shimmering gown and a lavish ride. Remember, though, there was one catch: The makeover lasted only until midnight. With his InstaBreast technique, Norman Rowe, a New York plastic surgeon, is playing fairy godmother to women temporarily seeking larger, fuller breasts, but his handiwork also lasts for only one night. In about 20 minutes, you can go from flat-chested to cleavage-proud.

Rowe’s method is remarkably simple: He designates a site at the edge of each nipple, and after the area is anesthetized, he injects about a half-liter of sterile saline solution—essentially salt water—into the patient’s breast tissue. He maneuvers the needle at various angles to different areas, expanding each breast until it reaches the desired fullness. The saline is gradually absorbed into the bloodstream, with the full effect lasting about 24 hours. (Rowe says that saline is considered perfectly safe; it’s the same stuff you would get in an IV if you were dehydrated.) InstaBreast – Temporary Breast Augmentation Procedure

So how has it come to this, how can you get a breast lift faster than it would take you to get a chiropractic adjustment? Well let’s blame/thank New York for being known to run off a “New York Minute”. Time is precious and professional female CEO’s couldn’t wait three weeks to have a procedure done to enhance their lives.

This has already spread to some of the more progressive cities in the nation, we tracked down a Scottsdale plastic surgeon who has already started offering a quick lift for all of the beautiful weekend warriors who hit the clubs at night and need to look their absolute best.

Now, the park lies open, shrouded in legend and danger. A thousand myths say that Maxwell hid a treasure, deep inside the control center of the park, just waiting to be reclaimed by some wasteland.
Unfortunately, a thousand more myths say that something happened to Maxwell’s World. They tell tales of shambling skeletons in the park that attack anything in sight, robots that find you and force-feed you hot dogs, of the rides coming to life and devouring those inside. There are some that say that Maxwell traded his soul to keep the park running, and not even the apocalypse stopped that.
