Amazing Solutions by Capturing The Science of Behavior

June 5th, 2017

DNA BehaviorEmotions play a big part in our lives. How we react to the various social and environmental fluctuations that occur throughout the day can have a major impact on our temperament and decision making processes. The folks at DNA Behavior wanted to know how these factors translate over to making decisions in the world of finance and business. So they took this concept to the next level by coming up with a process for discovering and understanding these triggers, along with their corresponding prescriptive behavior.

The company provides behavior analytics through various tailor-made questionnaires. Their basic questionnaire takes about 10 minutes to complete and can get to the core behavior of an individual. This process goes beyond simply providing a personality profile and gets into predictive behavior to assist financial planners in learning to interact on a more personal level with their clients. Soon, they will be able to identify their clients’ propensity for risk, biases and conditions that impact their decisions. This is also very useful in Business and Human Resources as it allows companies to find the perfect candidates as well as make their current teams more cohesive and productive.

There are several packages available, depending upon the level of insight required by the company. There are also questionnaires available for individuals. Visit their website to learn more and to take one of their demo questionnaires.

You Can ‘Face’ Your Cookies with A New Innovative Idea from Selffee

June 5th, 2017

SelffeeImagine being able to have cookies with a picture of you or someone of your choice on them. That is what Selffee is all about. You can now have photos printed on cookies or even coffee for parties such as a Sweet 16, baby’s birthdays or a Bat Mitzvah as a take-away favors. They are very beneficial at trade shows as a give-away for advertising.

The printing is inward facing, meaning that you have to physically be at the event to submit a photo for printing. The process is done through special hardware and uses 6-colors of FDA-certified completely edible, water-based ink. The coffee printing is done on a layer of foam or whipped cream much like a latte. You can take your own selfie or send it to them to be printed. They have 6 printers now and more are on the way. One of the more unusual items they have printed faces on was a pizza. As it is water-based, unlike a frosting, it is colorless and tasteless.

For Selffee to come to your event, prices vary based on several factors, such as the number of guests, the location of the event, and the amount of hours. They are currently based in Long Island, NY and will soon be in Los Angeles. To book them for your event, check out their website.
