We Want the Redhead! New Pirates of the Caribbean Dress and Purse

first_imgShare This!One of the most iconic animatronics at Walt Disney World is the feisty redhead in the auction scene of Pirates of the Caribbean. Now Disney is out with a Pirates Redhead dress and we are absolutely here for it. The $128.00 price is in line with the other themed adult dresses that have been offered recently. The fabric is substantial – this dress is heavy! It features a fun pirate woman and skeleton boarder along the bottom of the skirt. We found the dress on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom. It is also available at Cherry Tree Lane in Disney Springs. We’re not yet seeing the dress on shopDisney.com, but we’re hopeful that it will appear there eventually.

Adding to the awesome is the accompanying treasure chest purse, $85.00, that has a red skull lining. last_img read more

Leadership Starts With One

first_imgGreat leaders have inspired millions of people throughout history. Likewise, today’s great business leaders at all levels motivate employees to transform their enterprises and help them reach new heights of accomplishment. They instill confidence that enables their followers to achieve what others might consider impossible.But it’s easy to forget or fail to note at all, that these leaders have one other thing in common: They all had to lead themselves before leading others.Leading oneself to inspire one’s own heart and discipline one’s own ego is the first step any great leader takes before embarking on a great leadership role. The backgrounds of all great leaders reveal struggles that molded their character, helping them conquer fears and doubts, and making them more passionate and resilient.Leadership DriveThe drive to achieve greater things starts with a fire that we light within ourselves. It starts in our core and becomes a reflection of our values. And it can ignite other fires.”Learn to lead yourself before leading others.”Think about it for a moment: How can we inspire others if we don’t inspire ourselves? How can we drive others to greatness if we can’t seek it within ourselves? How can we expect more from others who are willing to follow us if we don’t expect more from ourselves?We often forget that before we lead by example, we must exemplify to ourselves what we expect from others. These individual challenges are the most testing of all because we often have to go through them alone, and each learning experience is a battle.Leadership MindsetIn business, I hear people say that leadership is only for managers who have direct reports. This enduring attitude assumes that one can’t lead without a hierarchical relationship.However, we should treat every opportunity as something worthy of leadership regardless of our role, responsibility or position.”You don’t need to manage people in order to lead.”Why think of leadership as being like retirement, something we wait for when we are young and without rank? As in formal education and the pursuit of lifelong learning, it is never too early and never too late to lead.Leadership PresenceEventually, when you are trusted with a position of authority, the authentic test of leadership will be at the forefront. When hundreds or thousands look to you for direction and guidance, there will be no place to hide, no room for doubt and no time for experimenting.Professional golfers treat every practice putt like the one they need to win the tournament. Likewise, we must practice leadership at all times —and as early and as often as possible.”Leadership of the one, is more about leadership presence.”It is an attitude we practice in every role we are engaged in, in every business decision that comes in front of us, whether we are the ones making the decision or not—a luxury we will not have when we are in the driver’s seat.I believe strongly that leading the one is as important as leading many because all our journeys start there.Connect with me on Twitter @KaanTurnaliOpens in a new window, LinkedInOpens in a new window and here on the IT Peer Network.This story originally appeared on turnali.comOpens in a new window.last_img read more

Chula Vista has homeless shelter crisis State of California to send millions

As a result of people dying in the streets from Hepatitus A, millions of dollars will be sent to the region to help out.“Every city in Southern California has a homeless issue. This grant money will help those considered to be ‘chronic homeless’, says Gordon Walker, CEO of Regional Task Force on Homeless. Chronic homeless is anyone on the streets for more than a year.For the first time, the City of Chula Vista will apply for some of that money. During the last homeless count, there are 367-people living on the streets of Chula Vista.That’s not a big number, compared to San Diego with thousands of homeless people. “But if you’re the person on the streets, one person is too much”, says Walker.As a result, cities and towns who want grant money will have to declare a “Shelter Crisis”. City leaders in Chula Vista will do just that at tonight’s council meeting.“In order to get the money, they have to declare”, says Walker.Right now, there is almost $19-million dollars available for the San DIego Region. Chula Vista is hoping to get a piece of the pie. The money could be used for everything from ‘rental assistance’ to “medical care”.The homeless issue may not be overly apparent to the average observer in Chula Vista, but city leaders are getting aggressive in their efforts to help all of them.
