If you are a heavy mobile device user like my dear friend and colleague Diana, you know that if you’re without the means of being able to charging your gadgets, it’s an utterly annoying time. There are probably a million different ways you can charge your devices, but if you forgot to bring it with you, it doesn’t really matter what you do because you won’t get more juice into your gadget regardless. All you’re left with is a gadget that stares at you with its black glossy screen, almost smiling at you just because it gets a chance to relax for a while. Yeah, the world has become obsessed with all the different ways we can connect to the Internet these days.

Soon there will be a way for you to seamlessly integrate a mobile device charger into your wardrobe. Yes, that is correct! It comes in the form of a little gadget called the Volt Buckle. It’s a new little nifty invention that was created to enable you to always bring your charger with you, without the excess number of gadgets and weight.

It was developed and created by the innovative people over at CaliBuilt and is not yet on the market. It seems they want to really make sure it is as good as it can get first, and they are now asking the public for help to come up with further improvements. So far, it caters to pretty much every single brand and model of smartphone. It is such a great way to never again have to worry about forgetting the charger at home if you are constantly on the go. I personally think it is a genius idea that I can’t wait to check out in real life.

How on earth did I become an “older worker?”

It was only a few years ago, it seems, that I set out to climb the ladder in my chosen field. That field happens to be journalism, but it shares many attributes with countless other workplaces. For instance, back when I was one of the youngest people in the room, I was helped by experienced elders who taught me the ropes.

Now, shockingly, I’m one of the elders. And I’ve watched my industry undergo significant change. That’s why I recently went searching for a young mentor — yes, a younger colleague to mentor me.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
