Perks Group Provides Community Advertising Exposure to Local Businesses

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, December 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Perks Group, an affinity group helping thousands of national and local companies build their reach and attain new customers, is one of the nation's fastest growing loyalty companies. Through an extensive network of top-retailers and professional businesses, the Perks Program offers a range of benefits to merchants, including otherwise inaccessible exposure to new customers.

One of the toughest hurdles for new and upcoming businesses is finding their footing within the proper market. The right customer base or network generates its own kind of return, but the problem is finding a well-suited market and leveraging it to the fullest.

Perks Group ensures that its members not only have access to a giant network of retailers, businesses, and customers, but it also provides many opportunities for exposure. When a new merchant signs up for the Perks Program, they are announced to local corporate to stir up activity and interest. This way, new members can share what discounts they have to offer and learn about the available savings options in their areas.

When a new merchant registers in the program, they have the chance to boost their company’s reputation through profile descriptions and company information. They can also post regular discounts and offers as well as feature printable coupons on the Perks website.

Marketing is a huge expense that requires savviness in various channels including social media, email, print, graphic design, and creative writing in addition to market research on target markets within specific channels. We’re told that small businesses and startups should allocate at least 12%-20% of their gross revenue to marketing.1 Becoming a Perks Group member is an advantage for any business, but an especially beneficial resource for those companies needing to immediately broaden their customer reach marketing.

In the Perk Group program, members send and receive frequent updates on new and upcoming offers around the community. Periodic emails are sent to registered Perks members containing merchant information, prompting them into action through product descriptions and promo advertisements.

Apart from the network of customers and businesses they gain entry to, Perks Group members also have various professional tools and resources at their disposal. They get free, time-saving management tools to improve efficiency and access to the same benefits as standard card holders. This allows them to make discounted purchases on a range of products and services, furthering minimizing operational costs for members.

Members get to save on everyday purchases like food and essentials and discover deals on services and products no matter where they are. They can access perks on the road, using mobile apps to determine what promotions are available in their reach.

The Perks Group program has hundreds of thousands of locations throughout the U.S., ensuring member benefits even while traveling. Currently, the Perks Group boasts millions of members nationwide, and the number continues to grow as more businesses learn about and sign up for the resourceful program.

Barry Hers Discusses His Favorite New York Locations

Finding a place to live in New York can be tough. Barry Hers tells us his favorite spots in the city that never sleeps.

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, USA, December 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With 8.4 million residents throughout New York City’s boroughs, finding a place to live can be a full-time job. With decades of real estate experience, Barry Hers offers some well-needed tips on deciding where to live in the big apple. When moving to New York, it’s not just a new place to live, it’s a lifestyle with endless possibilities, so finding the right home is just as important as any other big life decision.

Since its inception, New York has been home to intersecting cultures and communities that have made it one of the most important cities on the planet.

“New York does everything bigger and better,” explained Barry Hers. “As a global destination for art and culture, it has everything you could want in a city and more.”

“The most important factor when considering which borough to call home is budget. Once you have that figured out, everything else will fall into place with the right guidance and realtor,” explained Barry Hers. “Once you start exploring the different sections of New York, a part of the city is bound to speak to you.”

If you’re looking for a quiet and underrated part of the city, look no further than the Financial District. Having undergone major changes over the last 17 years, it’s peaceful at nights and on weekends and boasts some of the best restaurants in the city.

Barry Hers also recommends checking out Prospect Park and Crown Heights, two alternatives to Park Slope. Family-friendly neighborhoods with a historically younger demographic, both are incredibly diverse and offer a lot in terms of culture and activities. Boasting a history as old as New York, Crown Heights is a rich and diverse place to call home.

Another diverse area Barry Hers recommends checking out is the Lower East Side. Historically a melting pot, this diverse part of town is the intersection for all communities that immigrated to New York. If you are looking for a historically accurate part of the city that represents the best of New York, the Lower East side is it. With places like Little Italy, and Chinatown and lot’s of robust and elective new restaurants and shops, there is something for everyone in the Lower East Side.

If you’re looking for a location close to the famed central park, the Upper East Side is definitely worth checking out. Quiet, serene and perfect for the art lover with plenty of world-class museums.

New York has something for everybody, and Barry Hers is available to help those new to the city, and locals find new areas to explore. To learn more about Barry Hers and to connect today, click here.

We’ve been nominated for several awards. To finish the year off with a bang and start 2019 fantastically, our books will be included in gift bags to 2019 Golden Globe nominees.”

— Lisa Diane Kastner

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — This is Lisa Diane Kastner, the Founder and Executive Editor at Running Wild Press https://www.runningwildpress.com

We are an atypical publishing house with an all woman staff and volunteers plus we only publishing great stories and great writing that don’t fit neatly in a box.

In only our second full year of publishing we’re excited to say we’ve had an impressive year.

We’ve been nominated for several awards including the Pushcart Prize. To finish the year off with a bang and start 2019 with a fantastic start, two of our books will be included in gift bags to 2019 Golden Globe nominees and presenters the weekend of January 7, 2019.

When we were informed that both "Frontal Matter: Glue Gone Wild’ and ‘Running Wild Anthology of Stories, Volume 2" would be included in the gift bags, I couldn’t be more thrilled. This is the perfect tribute to our authors, our readers, and the stories of 2018 as well as a gorgeous beginning to 2019.

“Frontal Matter: Glue Gone Wild” by Suzanne Samples is a fun, funny, and heartbreakingly real memoir of a woman's fight against terminal brain cancer. The writing is honest, charming, and full of cuss words.

How Did Running Wild Press Get Into The Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards Gift Bags?

A dear friend reached out to me and mentioned that there was an opportunity to be included. There are only a handful of companies authorized to provide gift baskets for events such as the Golden Globes, the Emmys, the Grammys, the Oscars, and SAG Awards. I figured, heck, can’t hurt to have a chat. That chat resulted in our stories being included in 50 gift bags for both Golden Globe nominees and presenters as well as SAG Award nominees and presenters. We couldn’t be more excited. Only a select few are invited to be included in these baskets so this truly is an honor.

Who Among the Recipients Are You Most Excited to Meet?

Admittedly, I doubt that I’ll personally meet any of the celebrities or nominees during the weekend of the Golden Globes or the Screen Actors Guild Awards, but I am incredibly excited to have the likes of Bradly Cooper, Lady Gaga, Spike Lee, Constance Wu, Charlize Theron, and Lin-Manuel Miranda read these amazing stories.

I have admired Bradley Cooper’s rise and strategic choices for years. Lady Gaga continues to broaden and expand her repertoire. Her ability to tap into her own meager beginnings in “A Star Is Born” was truly breathtaking. Spike Lee’s true gift to bring forth real life situations and demonstrate their relevance to today’s society is beyond phenomenal. Constance Wu and the rest of the cast of “Crazy Rich Asians” not only brought theatrical houses down but showed the world how a Rom-Con should be done. And Lin-Manuel’s gifts for storytelling – no matter the form (Have you seen his Twitter account? Oy!) continues to inspire. I could go on and on. Needless to say, we’re proud to have these stories in such amazingly talented artists’ hands.

What Inspired You to Start Running Wild Press?

I had spent over a decade studying the art of storytelling from New York Times Bestsellers, such as Jonathan Maberry, Alexander Chee, Porochista Khakpour, Da Chen, Pulitzer Prize nominees such as Luis Alberto Urrea, National Book Award winners such as Julia Glass, Ha Jin, and PEN Award winners such as Percival Everett. I studied fiction, non-fiction, memoir, journalism, screenplay writing. Each experience and interaction brought greater knowledge and understanding.

I ran several writers workshops and writing organizations including Running Wild Writers Community out of Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. I often found writers whose writing was on-point – truly magical stories with great writing; the pieces simply needed a little tweaking. I gave the authors feedback and recommended that they send the pieces out for publication. I checked with each one and was often shocked when they said they couldn’t find home for their work. When I asked why, they informed me that the publications said the author’s writing was wonderful but didn’t quite fit.

The more I heard this, the clearer it was that tons of great stories with great writing simply don’t fit into mainstream media.

So, I created Running Wild Press for great stories and great writing that don’t fit neatly in a box to find worldwide audiences. I’ve been humbled by the public’s enthusiastic response to our stories. We’ve been nominated for several “Best of” collections, the Pushcart Prize, and several more honors that are currently in the works.

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS GEARING UP FOR WELLNESS IN A BRAND NEW WAY

Celliant® Performance Sheets from Sleepletics™ give you a restful sleep where you wake up energized.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Give yourself a gold star…you survived the holidays and lived to tell the tale! Now, as to New Year’s resolutions, instead of the same-old-same-old “I’ll lose 10 pounds” or “I’ll exercise more,” why not commit to resolutions with true wellness in mind, focusing on kindness to the body and joy to the spirit, ones that will make you feel better as well as be better? Following are five to consider:

Be Here Now
Whether you’re paying the bills, doing push-ups or reading to your toddler, put 100 percent into the task. As financial guru Suze Orman says, “Multi-tasking is the ruination of quality” and one of the most frequent ways we get off-course is by phoning and texting while we’re with others and doing other things.

Think about it: Delivering 50 percent of one’s energy and expertise to one project, 30 to another, and 20 to still another, all at the same time, is giving short shrift to each.

Everyone enjoys a chat more when they know you’re really listening. Be it for business or pleasure, it’s the way to go in the New Year.

Last, according to MIT professor Sherry Turkle, among many reasons for putting the phone down: media multi-taskers think more slowly, and too much phone use can ruin relationships as they tend to make us ignore each other.

Sleep More
According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults need from seven to nine hours of shut-eye each night. Unfortunately, not all of us heed this directive. Here are two tricks that might help:

If you’d like to be asleep by 10 pm, but find it impossible, try going to bed 15 minutes earlier than your norm for a week. Add another 15 minutes the next week, and so on until you reach your goal. Done slowly like this, you will barely notice the difference.

Dress your bed with Celliant® Performance Sheets from Sleepletics™. These luxurious, silky-soft sheets have been scientifically proven to promote restful sleep and increase energy and stamina among other benefits. An FDA-determined medical device and general wellness product, Celliant Sheets have mineral-infused fibers that recycle body heat into infrared energy to naturally increase blood flow and local circulation. They’ll make you feel beautiful, as well as energized. Available in chalk, blue, tan and light grey to coordinate with any decorating scheme.

Eat Healthily
We are what we eat – hair, skin and teeth, energy level and well-being, as well as weight and waistline. Start the New Year off right by following these tips gathered from several reputable sources:

• Drink water throughout the day and say “no” to sugary drinks all the time.
• Pare down meat intake and replace with fish.
• Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Aim to make them 50 percent of every meal.
• Cut down on fat and sugar. Check with your doctor first, of course, before making any radical changes to your diet.
• Eat three proper meals a day … instead of skipping and binging.

Get Movin’
No matter what shape you’re in, start exercising. With so many choices these days, there’s something for everyone. Find a gym or join an organization like the YMCA that offers a vast variety of reasonably-priced classes. Equally important no matter your age, exercising is also a good way to keep the brain active and lower the risk of Alzheimer’s.

Try these tricks to stay motivated:

If you already exercise, change your routine once in a while. Find spinning a snooze? Try boxing. Zumba too loud? Maybe yoga is more your thing. Whatever it takes, keep your workout interesting so you keep doing it.

Ask a friend to join you. Take turns encouraging each other and celebrating achievements, as well as complaining about how sore your muscles are.

Wake up rarin’ to go. Celliant Sheets help you feel refreshed and completely recovered, “packed with energy” as one person said, following the peaceful night’s sleep they provide.

Stop Smoking
Could anything be better than to quit smoking in the New Year? Not according to the American Medical Association, who says in its journal that giving up cigarettes is “one of the most important things you can do to improve your health and well-being.” And that includes electronic or e-cigarettes, and yes, the flavored ones, too!

While still being investigated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other eminent groups, it has been determined that vaping may not be worth the risk. There are many reasons, including the fact that they often contain such ingredients as nicotine, which is addictive, and chemicals like formaldehyde.

If you’ve tried everything to stop, but are still sneaking one when no one’s looking, try these:

Determine the amount of money you spend per week on your habit. Then either buy yourself a present with it as a weekly reward for not smoking, or save the money for something big at the end of six months.

If there’s someone in your life who’s been begging you to quit, perhaps they would match you dollar-for-dollar and join you in spending it once you’re nicotine-free.

Remember that in addition to becoming healthier and saving money, your clothes, car and home will smell fresher and be cleaner.

Customize your 2019 Resolutions to suit your needs and make this New Year happier and healthier than ever!

Running Wild Press Featured in Gift Baskets to 2019 Golden Globe Nominees and Presenters

Running Wild Anthology of Stories Vol. 2

Running Wild Press has had an impressive year. Nominated for several awards, the founder is excited to be included in gift bags to Golden Globe nominees.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In their third year of publishing, Running Wild Press has had an impressive year. Already nominated for several awards including the Pushcart Prize, the executive editor, Lisa Diane Kastner, is excited for two of the press’s books to be included in gift bags to 2019 Golden Globe nominees and presenters. The bags will be gifted to actors, actresses, and presenters for the 2019 Golden Globes the weekend of January 7, 2019.

“When we were informed that both ‘Frontal Matter: Glue Gone Wild’ and ‘Running Wild Anthology of Stories, Volume 2’ would be included in the gift bags, I couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Lisa Diane Kastner, Founder and Executive Editor of Running Wild Press. “This is the perfect tribute to our authors, our readers, and the stories of 2018 as well as a gorgeous beginning to 2019.”

Lisa founded Running Wild Press with the vision to bring great stories and great writing that do not fit neatly in a box to readers worldwide.
“In 2018, we published nine books with stories ranging from personal narratives to cross-genre fiction and non-fiction,” said Lisa. “These two books represent a great compilation of our narratives.”

Never one to shy from an opportunity to feature talents who don’t necessarily fit in mainstream media, we chatted with Lisa about the press, the Golden Globes, and anything else we could fit in.

Lee Bressler points out distinctions between AI and automation

Lee Bressler

Financial services industry professional Lee Bressler addresses the importance of distinguishing between artificial intelligence and process automation.

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, USA, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With machine learning and AI two incredibly hot topics throughout 2018 and going into 2019, Lee Bressler looks at the key differences between groundbreaking artificial intelligence and more straightforward process automation as he debunks a number of myths surrounding the technology.

"There has been much talk about the ways in which artificial intelligence could replace current workers in the not-too-distant future," says Bressler, an equity fund portfolio manager based in New York City.

Indeed, according to researchers at the University of Oxford, a collegiate research university in Oxford, England, as many as 47 percent of jobs in the United States could be at risk of replacement by artificial intelligence, robots, and other forms of automated technology by 2040.

According to Bressler, however, the threat may not be as real or as significant as it seems. "There's something of a misconception that artificial intelligence and associated technologies will lead to huge company layoffs and massive spikes in unemployment," he explains.

"While there is little doubt,"Lee Bressler continues, "that these technologies will ultimately replace certain job roles and tasks, the panic surrounding artificial intelligence is largely unnecessary."

First and foremost, people must take into consideration the difference between artificial intelligence and more straightforward task automation, says Bressler. "There needs to be more clarity between what constitutes artificial intelligence and what simply amounts to automation," he explains, "whereby which automation employs technology solely to tackle low level, often highly repetitive tasks, which may or may not currently be handled by human workers."

Artificial intelligence, on the other hand, according to Lee Bressler, is much smarter. "Artificial intelligence works to pull together new insights, identify patterns, predict behaviors, and enhance customer experiences, among other things," he explains, "but still relies heavily on data engineers and data scientists to maintain and refine the necessary algorithms."

He continues, "While artificially intelligent solutions are capable of handling vast amounts of data more accurately and more efficiently than a human counterpart, as well as tackling many other tasks, they will always need intervention from humans."

Accordingly, Lee Bressler says that while automation will undoubtedly replace certain roles, increased efficacy of processes as a result will open up new roles, and create demand for those skilled and in a position to oversee such matters.

"Ultimately," he adds, wrapping up, "the true role of artificial intelligence right now, and in the immediate future, is to augment human capabilities and intelligence, and not simply to replace the

Micah Raskin Offers Tips on Finding your Passion

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin has traveled around the world chasing his dreams. He offers advice on how to find your passion and live a more fulfilling life.

NASSAU COUNTY, NEW YORK, USA, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a public speaker, author, business owner, and professional poker player, Micah Raskin has never been afraid of taking risks in his personal and professional life. Micah has spent his life searching for joy in the most unexpected places and wants everyone he meets to experience the same thing.

“As a motivational speaker, I get asked all of the time how I have found passion in my life, explained Micah Raskin. “I encourage everyone to ask themselves what they love to do, and chase that down.”

Micah Raskin encourages people to think if they could be doing anything in the world, what would it be and why? Understanding the emotional hurdles that come with changing your life can be a daunting task, but not asking the questions means you will stay where you are, and that’s not a great place to be.

If the work you are doing now does not fulfill you, or you struggle through it and do not enjoy the challenge it provides, then chances are you are not living up to your full potential.

“I get asked often about why I love what I do,” explained Micah Raskin. “I challenge people to ask themselves why are you here, and what do you want to leave behind.”

If you can focus on answering why you are here, you can figure out how to find your true calling. Start by writing down a mission statement for your life. Get connected with who you are on a core level, and start writing down what you want to leave behind. Thinking about your legacy and your mission statement for your life have a way of grounding you and helping you channel the energy and frustration you have inside.

Micah Raskin also encourages people to really think about where they want to go next. Part of building a life for yourself that involves your true passion is laying out a path with goals in front of you that challenge you to keep going.

It’s never easy finding your passion, but when you do, you see the world in a different light and it makes every challenge you face on a daily basis worth overcoming.

Micah Raskin is currently working on a book and loves to help people find their true calling. To learn more, connect with him by clicking here.

BRINGING CRAFTSMANSHIP AND INNOVATION TOGETHER: GSB DIGITAL ACQUIRES ALDINE PRINTING

Effective December 19, 2018, GSB Digital has acquired selected assets of Aldine Printing, Inc. and will assume the manufacturing for the customers of Aldine.

GSB Digital is already a place where innovation and craftsmanship coexist. Our acquisition of Aldine’s assets and print processes only solidifies our mission to aid in our client’s success.”

— Stephan Steiner

LONG ISLAND CITY, NY, UNITED STATES, December 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — LONG ISLAND CITY, NY– GSB Digital, a trusted print and litigation support service provider located in the New York City area, announced today that they have acquired selected assets of Aldine Printing, Inc. and will assume the manufacturing for the customers of Aldine, a luxury specialty printing company also located in the New York City area. This purchase supports GSB Digital’s vision towards a complete print solution approach by bringing together the craftsmanship of traditional print methods with their innovative digital printing counterparts.

GSB Digital’s President, Stephan Steiner, and Aldine’s CEO, Greg Zuniss have a long-standing business relationship. Collaborating frequently, the two share a common pride of running a family business and creating a quality product. The Zuniss family looked to GSB Digital to achieve a graceful exit from ownership, and pave the way for retirement of Alan Zuniss, who founded the business over 35 years ago, knowing that GSB will be able to maintain a sustainable and profitable manufacturing processes long-term. Greg specifically wanted to target another print provider who would ensure their employees would retain their position and that their customers would continue to receive uninterrupted quality service.

“The addition of Aldine’s capabilities and staff will lead GSB Digital to become a stronger organization” noted Stephan Steiner. “GSB Digital is already a place where innovation and craftsmanship coexist.
