I’m back from ASI Orlando, where it was sunny and 85 degrees. This morning in the Philly burbs it’s 36 with a wintry mix, as the weather people like to call it. I’m here to spread sunshine anyway with these ideas I found for you. Enjoy this edition and send your feedback directly to me: email@example.com.I’d love to hear from you and it may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine.

Power To The People The Pitch: Brian Hillhouse, VP of Sales at PSL-USA (asi/75582), was one of our guests at the Diners Club in Orlando. We have new networking clubs at the shows this year and they are super fun, so be sure to look into them when you’re going to any of the ASI Shows. Thereafter, I saw him at his booth and he told me about their brand new USB Power People. They are a combination of USB flash drive and powerbanks in the shape and design of real professionals. They charge most common devices and you can store your documents to boot. For memory sizes, pricing and other info, click here: http://bit.ly/14Q1zab. The Bottom Line: Plugged in.
Drill, Baby, Drill The Pitch: I have never held a drill in my life, but while in Orlando, I did hold the Holds-A-Bit from EMT (asi/52263). It securely holds drill bits and drivers on the drill and the universal fit accommodates most cordless and coded drills. The durable, flexible material stands up to industrial use. Suggest it for manufacturing clients and tool suppliers. Click here: http://bit.ly/1BbKDI1. The Bottom Line: Bits of sales.
Magic Potion The Pitch:Snugz USA (asi/88060) unveiled its new line of Zen Essential Oils. I wondered whether I needed any other essential liquid besides Pinot Grigio, but I can surely appreciate that the various therapeutic grade oils can be used to address alertness, congestion, endurance, headaches, memory and more. They come in various fragrances, derived purely from nature and in many forms, such as bath salts, soaps, candles and diffusers. Spas and salons are your obvious targets, but the candles and diffusers would make nice new homeowner gifts from real estate clients. For all options and pricing, click here: http://bit.ly/1sqwvbQ. The Bottom Line: Makes scents.
Let Me Take a Selfie The Pitch: While in Orlando, a distributor rep emailed asking me to find her all things selfie related. Who do I pass on the show floor, but Jake Pan, CEO of Yorkn Inc. (asi/98754)? The supplier offers various related items, such as wireless remote shutter controls, extendable selfie sticks and more. Pitch these for tech rewards and conferences, company stores, etc. Check it all out here: http://bit.ly/14LMWW9. The Bottom Line: Expand your horizons.
