Grey Skies ~

         Rain, Rain go away... on second thought, come back!  We're having terrible storms this week.  However, I don't mind.  I'm one of those people that love thunderstorms.  I love the look of the sky, the sound of thunder and the rainbow that appears once the clouds have cleared..

Another reason I love rain ~ umbrellas!  I look for any reason to bring out a Chantal Thomass umbrella. She makes striking umbrellas that will make you wish for grey skies!

My favourite umbrella to carry ~ Noeud Drape

A chic umbrella is an essential in every wardrobe.  Unfortunately, the tote umbrella has destroyed the romance of carrying a fabulous umbrella.

I'm always puzzled by the number of people that spend much thought on their ensemble only to carry a revolting umbrella.

I feel it's the final touch to chic silhouette.  Not only is it a beautiful item to carry in your hand, it gives instant allure.

                                                                   My top umbrella picks ~

Guy de Jean "Cancan" ~ she's on my Mother's Day wishlist

Bella Umbrella Signature Pagoda ~ I just purchased this one in ravishing red but have yet to receive it.  This fabulous umbrella comes in an array of colours!
Chantal Thomass ~ Tulle Fronce.  This doesn't seem practical but yet, I'm not a practical girl either

Pasotti Pink Dahlia

Of course, I'm smitten with anything from Ladurée

Lulu Guinness' whimsical Birdcage umbrella 

No rain?  No problem!  Parasols are great to shield the sun.

In Paris, be sure to stop by Madeleine Gély's on avenue Saint-Germain ~ A charming shop with a large selection, also accepts special orders.

Have a beautiful weekend!  xoxo, B

Daewoo may be General Motors’ only established brand in the Korean auto market, but it will soon add another: Chevrolet. GM revealed today at the Busan motor show that it will begin selling bowtie-badged vehicles in South Korea in 2011.

The Alpheon is being positioned in the Korea market as a luxury model at the top of the Daewoo range. It is fitted with a 3.0-liter V6 and a six-speed automatic transmission. GM Daewoo said the car will go on sale in the second half of the year.

GM Daewoo says the "Alpheon becomes a stand-alone luxury product brand in GM Daewoo's product portfolio." Much like its Korean couterpart, Hyundai, have made inroads into the luxury sedan segment with the Genesis model.

Press Release

GM Daewoo's All-New Luxury Sedan Debuts at 2010 Busan International Motor Show

Alpheon is GM Daewoo's entry into the upper-midsize segment

Busan, Korea - GM Daewoo Auto & Technology (GM Daewoo) unveiled its much-anticipated luxury sedan, the Alpheon, at the 2010 Busan International Motor Show today.

"With the introduction of the all-new Alpheon luxury sedan, we have added another attractive model to our product portfolio and our first entry in the fast-growing upper-midsize segment in Korea," said GM Daewoo President and CEO Mike Arcamone. "I am confident that the Alpheon will surpass the demands of the most sophisticated luxury sedan buyers in Korea."

Another highlight of the GM Daewoo stand is a seven-seat compact multi-purpose vehicle, the Orlando show car, which is making its first appearance at an international motor show in Asia.

In addition, GM Daewoo has on display the Lacetti Premiere and GentraX race cars, and a Matiz mini-car artistically wrapped in pink.

With "Advancing Style" as its theme for this year's Busan International Motor Show, GM Daewoo has 18 vehicles on display that showcase its automotive industry design expertise.

Alpheon - Stylish Luxury Sedan

The Alpheon is based on the same GM global architecture as the Buick LaCrosse, one of the three finalists for 2010 North American Car of the Year.

GM designers and engineers from Asia, Europe and North America targeted the luxury sedan as a global product that would meet the highest quality and performance standards in the most sophisticated markets.

At first glance, the Alpheon's sculpting design flows in all directions, giving the vehicle a tightly wrapped appearance and a fast, coupe-like profile. Its dynamic and elegant body styling is highlighted by sharp side lines, short overhangs and fenders wrapped precisely around large wheel housings, giving it the presence of an upscale large sedan (2,837-mm wheelbase and 4,995mm body length).

With a unique emblem on its front "waterfall" grille, the Alpheon becomes a stand-alone luxury product brand in GM Daewoo's product portfolio.

The innovative design philosophy continues in the Alpheon's interior. The flowing shape of its instrument panel design offers a distinct, confident and upscale impression. The refined look is an integrated center stack design that incorporates ice-blue light-emitting diode (LED) ambient lighting along with premium infotainment features. Adding to the use of soft-touch materials and low-gloss trim panels rather than traditional wood applications is indicative of exceptional and luxurious craftsmanship.

Powered by a 3.0-liter V-6 engine combined with a six-speed automatic transmission, the Alpheon will ensure responsive performance when it is launched in the second half of this year in Korea.

Our friend and bright colleague, Joshua Kurlantzick did a solid piece for on Obama's export goals which target small businesses. Here's my favorite snippet from his article:

Unfortunately, the gap between political rhetoric and real-world reality is wide. A mere 4 percent of U.S. small businesses export, according to the Small Business Administration. Indeed, Fortune 500 firms dominate exports, even though they comprise a small percentage of U.S. businesses.
We thank Joshua for reaching out to us and including our remarks in his article. Read it here and get on the export express train!


In 1992 the singer Vanessa Paradis branched out in a new direction, replacing the top model Inès de la Fressange as the face of Chanel's perfume "Coco".

Jean-Paul Goude made a memorable advert for the perfume, filming Vanessa as a whistling exotic black bird swinging in a bird cage in Coco Chanel’s apartment. That definitely needs some courage!

Here is the Video of 19 year old Vanessa.

hot lady gaga Berita artis dunia terkini, Lady Gaga Artis Paling Berpengaruh Didunia Versi Time 2010,

Majalah Time kembali merilis 100 orang paling berpengaruh di dunia. Dalam jajaran artis paling berpengaruh, tahun 2010 ini terpilih Lady Gaga di posisi puncak. Ada kejutan dengan masuknya nama Robbert Pattinson.

Time mengkategorikan orang paling berpengaruh dalam 4 hal yakni pemimpin, pahlawan, artis dan pemikir. Dalam jajaran artis, Time memberi daftar 25 artis yang paling berpengaruh. Kali ini ada sedikit kejutan dalam daftar itu.

Lady Gaga, seperti dilansir, Jumat (30/4/2010), menduduki posisi paling atas sebagai artis paling berpengaruh. Ini tentu tidak mengejutkan mengingat Gaga memang luar biasa tahun ini. Ia diganjar Grammy dan merevolusi industri musik.

"Kebanyakan staf radio tidak sangat cerdas. Tapi Gaga memperlihatkan idenya dengan tindakan yang sangat memuaskan. Dia memiliki kepekaan pop yang luar biasa," kata Cyndi Lauper, aktris dan penyanyi Amerika Serikat (AS) yang memenangkan nominasi Emmy Award dan Grammy Award.

25 Artis Paling Berpengaruh di Dunia

Dalam daftar orang paling berpengaruh di dunia, majalah Time memasukkan nama 25 artis. Di posisi puncak artis paling berpengaruh disandang Lady Gaga. Siapa saja mereka selain Gaga?

Kejutan muncul dengan masuknya Robert Pattinson dalam 25 artis paling berpengaruh di dunia. Pattinson menempati posisi ke-6 jauh di atas artis pemenang Oscar Sandra Bullock dan sutradara 'Avatar' James Cameron.

Sandra yang akhir-akhir ini banyak diberitakan terkait perselingkuhan sang suami, Jesse James, hanya menempati posisi ke-22. Sementara James Cameron yang melahirkan film-film box office menempati posisi paling buncit, kalah jauh dibandingkan sang mantan istri, Kathryn Bigelow yang berada di posisi ketiga.

Berikut daftar 25 artis paling berpengaruh versi Time:

1. Lady Gaga

2. Conan O'Brien

3. Kathryn Bigelow

4. Oprah Winfrey

5. Valery Gergiev

6. Robert Pattinson

7. Ashton Kutcher

8. Suzanne Collins

Lady Gaga Beraksi Dengan Payudara Dipasangi Kembang Api

Penyanyi Lady Gaga dipilih majalah Time sebagai artis paling berpengaruh. Berpose untuk Time, Lady terlihat membiarkan dadanya dipasangi kembang api.

Si Poker Face itu mengenakan bra berbahan metal. Selain bra tersebut tidak ada lagi yang menutupi payudaranya. Bra tersebut dihiasi kembang api. Saat dipotret oleh Time, kembang api itu pun menyala.

Dalam posenya, Gaga sama sekali tidak terlihat takut meski ada kembang api menyala di atas payudaranya. Ia malah bersedekap dan berpose dengan bibir terbuka.

Dilansir New York Magazine, Jumat (30/4/2010), Gaga, juga tampak mengenakan bra yang sama ketika ia diwawancara untuk Time. Dalam video wawancaranya, penyanyi yang duet bareng Beyonce itu mengungkapkan siapa orang yang paling berpengaruh untuknya. Orang tersebut adalah ahli psikospiritual Deepak Chopra.

Time memilih Gaga sebagai artis berpengaruh bukan tanpa alasan. Sejak 2009 lalu sampai 2010 ini, penyanyi 24 tahun itu cukup berprestasi dan fenomenal.

John Tozzi, small business reporter for BusinessWeek and U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke brainstorm about how the U.S. government plans to boost small business exports. They address three key issues:

1. What stops most small businesses from exporting?

2. How will the Obama Administration double exports in five years?

3. Some people argue that growing exports depends more on the value of the dollar, and there's not much from a policy point of view that the U.S. can do to boost exports.

Read the entire Q&A here.

iron man 2 - film terbaruFilm terbaru, Iron Man 2 - Karakter-karakter Film Iron Man 2, Dibandingkan film pertamanya, 'Iron Man 2' menghadirkan lebih banyak karakter dalam ceritanya. Yuk, kita intip karakter-karakter yang akan eksis di film garapan sutradara Jon Favreau itu.

Tony Stark Alias Iron Man

Karakter Tony Stark tentunya masih diperankan oleh aktor Robert Downey Jr. Jon Favreau sebelumnya sempat mengungkapkan kalau 'Iron Man 2' akan menampilkan sisi negatif Stark, yaitu soal kecanduannya terhadap alkohol.

Selain itu, Stark juga akan tampil dengan jubah perang barunya. Kostum Iron Man rancangan Mary Zophres kali ini lebih bersudut tajam. Perbedaan pun sangat terlihat pada pundaknya. Pundak si manusia besi yang baru mirip dengan baju perang ala gladiator.

Virginia "Pepper" Potts

Karakter Pepper yang diperankan lagi oleh Gwyneth Paltrow tidak lagi menjadi asisten pribadi Stark di 'Iron Man 2'. Kini Pepper menjabat sebagai CEO Stark Industries menggantikan Obadiah Stane.

Lt. Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes Alias War Machine

Jika menyaksikan film pertamanya, Anda pasti sudah bisa menebak kalau Rhodey akan mengenakan kostum War Machine di sekuelnya. Tapi kali ini, karakter Rhodey tidak diperankan lagi oleh aktor Terrence Howard dan digantikan oleh Don Cheadle. Kabarnya, Jon Favreau merasa tidak nyaman bekerjasama dengan Howard.

Ivan Vanko Alias Whiplash

Mickey Rourke yang berperan sebagai Ivan Vanko sepertinya akan menjadi pusat perhatian di film ini. Ivan Vanko merupakan peleburan karakter Blacklash dan Crimson Dynamo dari versi komiknya. Sama seperti Stark, Ivan juga mengenakan power pack di dadanya.

Untuk mendalami perannya, Rourke sempat mengunjungi penjara Butyrka di Rusia. Selain melatih bahasa Rusia, Rourke ingin melihat langsung bagaimana kehidupan para penjahat di sana.

Natalia Romanova Alias Black Widow

Sebelumnya sempat muncul spekulasi Black Widow akan menjadi karakter jahat di 'Iron Man 2', namun spekulasi tersebut ternyata salah. Di film ini, Natalia Romanova menjadi agen rahasia Strategic Hazard Intervention, Espionage Logistics Directorate (S.H.I.E.L.D) dan menyamar sebagai asisten Stark.

Karakter Black Widow pun diperankan oleh Scarlett Johansson. Scarlett dipilih oleh Jon setelah Emily Blunt hengkang dari penggarapan 'Iron Man'.

Justin Hammer

Justin Hammer yang diperankan oleh aktor Sam Rockwel merupakan musuh utama Iron Man. Hammer akan bekerja sama dengan Ivan Vanko untuk menghancurkan Stark.

Meski tidak mengetahui seluk-beluk Hammer, Rockwel langsung sepakat ketika ditawarkan Jon untuk memerankan karakter tersebut. Ia pun sempat kaget ketika mengetahui Hammer adalah sosok pria tua di komiknya.

Nick Fury

Awalnya Samuel L. Jackson enggan untuk memerankan karakter Nick Fury, bos S.H.I.E.L.D karena tidak cocok dengan nilai kontrak yang ditawarkan Marvel. Namun, setelah melakukan negosiasi ulang, Samuel akhirnya sepakat beraksi sebagai Fury di sembilan film Marvel.

Total ada tujuh karakter utama yang bakal eksis di 'Iron Man 2'. Nah, jadi semakin penasaran kan? 'Iron Man 2' akan rilis di bioskop mulai Jumat (30/4/2010) mendatang.

I was sent a complimentary copy of "Built to Sell: Turn Your Business Into One You Can Sell," and read it one recent rainy Sunday afternoon. I am sure the author, John Warrillow, was hoping I'd write a favorable review about it on this blog. His hope has turned into a reality. It's a great little book and I highly recommend it to anyone who runs a business with the desire, at some point, to sell it.

I liked the simplicity of the book so much that when John followed up with me, we decided to conduct a Q&A so readers -- that's you! -- could get a true understanding of what the book's about and why he wrote it in the first place. Here's the result.

LD: Why did you write "Built to Sell?" What's in it for you? What's in it for your reader?

JW: I used to own a market research company with a special niche of studying business owners. One statistic that jumped out at me was that more than half of all business owners want to exit their companies in the next 10 years yet just one percent successfully sell their company each year.

"Built to Sell" is about how to build a valuable company you could sell – whether you want to sell next year, 10 years down the road or would just like to sleep well at night knowing you could sell your business if and when you’re ready.

LD: Does your ideal reader have a particular age or revenue base?

JW: The ideal reader is a business owner whose growth has stalled and they feel trapped by their business. Customers ask to speak to the owner, the owner gets involved in serving customers and then customers have the expectation the owner will serve them the next time. With customers loyal to the owner, they reach a ceiling they can’t bust through.

LD: In addition to a business owner building a business where "they" are the business, what is the second biggest mistake owners make when they are ready to sell their business and why?

JW: Assuming the offer they receive is a binding deal. When an acquirer makes an offer for your business, it is typically a non-binding letter of intent. Many business owners see the offer and spend the money in their mind without realizing that the acquirer can walk away at any time during due diligence with no penalty. Their offer is often discounted during diligence (I spoke with a deal lawyer for an article I was writing and he claimed 100% of the deals he has worked involved a discount in price between the offer letter and the binding agreement) so there is still a lot of work and negotiation to be done between agreeing to a non-binding letter of intent and a binding agreement.

LD: How important is a company's international base of customers when they go to sell their business? For example, say my company sells to more than 27 countries and generates 33% of its overall sales overseas. How attractive is that to a potential buyer? If it depends, how so and why? What is the likelihood then that my company might be acquired by a company located in another country? What's it based on?

JW: I think having international customers will increase your value and you’ll get a better multiple for your business when you sell. The price you get for your business is governed by supply and demand – the more people who want to buy your company, the higher the price you’ll get. With international customers you will be seen as an international company and buyers may come from countries where you have customers.

The weakness of the U.S. dollar in relation to some other world currencies also means you should definitely include countries outside of the U.S. as possible acquirers. For example, two years ago, the Canadian dollar was worth 78 cents to the U.S. dollar. Today the currencies are at par, meaning Canadians are buying more U.S. businesses with their newly strengthened currency.

LD: One of the tips you offer in your book is positioning your service business as a product business by way of a process. Without giving away too much, can you explain how that came about and touch on its advantages?

JW: Acquirers try to quickly put your business into one of two buckets when they are evaluating a possible purchase: They have a “service business bucket” and a “product business bucket.” If you get stuck in the service business bucket, they will reason that the assets are the people, and they will value your business much lower (lower multiple etc.). Whatever money you do get for your business will be tied to a risky 3-5 year “earn out” which involves trading your ownership stake in your company for a glorified job in the acquiring company. An earn out is the enemy for any entrepreneur so you want to do whatever you can to get put in the “product business bucket” and get as much of your cash up front.

LD: What tactical steps should small business owners be taking now to maximize value for when they sell their business? If they have a product or service offering that is not scaleable, would you suggest they scrap it and start over or ...?

JW: Yes. In a recession, it's tempting to offer more stuff to grasp whatever revenue you can, but that revenue comes at an unacceptable cost in the time and money it takes away from what you’re best at. Jim Hindman identified oil changes as the one service of the typical auto service center that could scale beyond him. He started Jiffy Lube and ultimately sold it for $42 million. Arguably now more than ever it is important to be the world’s best at one thing rather than being good at a lot of things.

LD: If there was one strategic thing that a business owner should focus on while building a great, enduring enterprise that can be sold later on for a gazillion dollars, what would it be?

JW: Create a positive cash flow cycle by charging for all or some of your product/service up front. A positive cash flow cycle will allow you to use your customers' money to grow your business without going outside for capital, and when you’re ready to sell you’ll get a higher multiple because the acquirer does not need to commit extra cash to fund the day-to-day operations of your business.

There are lots of examples of companies that have turned their cash flow model from negative to positive. Probably one of the most famous is Dell. At Dell they used to pay for the inventory to build the computers and then advertise to get a customer to call. They had to outlay all of the cash from the inventory and advertising and almost choked on their own growth. Now they take the customers' money and wait to order the parts based on orders they received. They process the customers' credit card when they make the purchase and don’t pay their vendors for 60 or 90 days, allowing them to use their customers' cash to fund the business.

LD: If you had it to do all over again, what would you have done differently in terms of how you built and sold your first company?

JW: I’ve started and exited four companies. My first was a graphic design company where we would do anything for a buck. I had read too many books about how the “customer is king” and heard too many stories like the guy who returns snow tires to Nordstrom’s despite not buying them there (Nordstrom’s doesn’t sell snow tires). I mistakenly believed the key to an enduring business is treating the customer well. Now I think that’s crap. A business owner needs to lead their customers by offering something of value on terms that allow the business owner to scale their company. I wasted a lot of time bending over backwards trying to “serve” customers when I should have picked one service, taught others to execute and built a business. Instead we were just a collection of people, hawking hours.

LD: With the Internet and globalization, how do you see the future when it comes to buying and selling businesses? Will it be easier, more competitive, more complex or all of the above?

JW: It's becoming a lot more fluid and global. In the past, if you wanted to sell your business, you had to rely on a business broker who knew your local geographic market. Now the same broker will list your company for sale on and get access to potential buyers from around the world.
