Shoreline based soap maker, Michael Miller of Mr. Kitty’s Soap Shop, is utilizing crowdfunding in the hopes he can launch a business that will impact his community
Shoreline, WA, January 30, 2012: Shoreline-
Founded in 2009, Kickstarter is an interactive website that allows the creative community to raise money for creative projects from individual contributors. However, unless the fundraiser reaches their goal, they do not receive any of the contributions. To date, hundreds of creative projects have been funded throughout the country.
With the current economy small businesses like Mr. Kitty’s Soap shop must come up with creative ways to finance their dream. “The initial startup wasn’t too difficult” states soap slinger Michael Miller. “With just my modest savings I was able to get a starting inventory and establish an online presence on sites like Etsy.com, and develop a following on the local craft show and farmers’ market circuit. However, now that I want to take my business to the next level I’m finding the traditional sources of funding just aren’t there for me. I’ve been forced to explore alternative routes, using venues like Kickstarter.”
Mr. Kitty’s Soap Shop began producing soap in the summer of 2010. The name comes from Michael’s pet, an abandoned house cat he rescued in New Orleans fourteen years ago. “Naming the shop after the Mr. Kitty was the least I could do for a pet that put up with me all these years.” chuckles the animal loving soapmaker. After less than a year of launching Mr. Kitty’s, Michael was able to quit his day job and focus on making soap full time. “I went from just a few types of bar soap, to a line that now includes soap, lip balms, lotions, bath salts, laundry supplies, and my hugely popular handcrafted shaving kits.” says Michael, “After I have my own retail operation I’ll be able to expand my line to include supplies for the home soap maker.”
From the beginning Mr. Kitty has been well received. “I’ve had a great response from the community,” says Michael. “They appreciate my ‘shop local’ message, the earth friendly touches I put into my line (soap wrappings are unbleached parchment and recycled or upcycled paper, the line includes Soap Nuts, a chemical free laundry detergent, and as much as possible ingredients are biodegradable and sourced from fair trade and environmentally friendly suppliers ). I would love my products and message to reach an even wider audience. This Kickstarter project will help me reach my goal.”

Wildflower & VCSonline Team to Deploy VirtualEyes SaaS Project Management Software to Federal Market
|January 31, 2012||Filled under releases, United States||
Wildflower Intl. and VCSonline today announced a teaming agreement that grants Wildflower the exclusive rights to VirtualEyes, a Federal Government specific version of the VPMi for SaaS & on-site resource, portfolio, and project management.
Under terms of the agreement Wildflower will continue to enhance, market, and sell VirtualEyes to U.S. Federal customers looking to effectively manage the billions of dollars in contract, program and project management budgets that are expected to get tighter and receive more scrutiny in the months ahead.
“While many will believe we entered this agreement overnight, the truth is VirtualEyes was over four years in the making. Wildflower started using VPMi in 2008 as the third contractor in three years on a billion dollar Federal IT contract. We knew if we wanted to satisfy the customer and keep the business we had to take a radically different approach to contract management and customer satisfaction than those before us. After an exhaustive search of commercial web-based project management tools, we deployed VPMi and started to track every customer order as a repeatable project with workplans, workflow, teams, documents, and issue management,”
“VirtualEyes first materialized in the form of a modestly enhanced VPMi web-based project management tool which Wildflower continued to tailor in order to best serve our principal customer, the Federal Government.”
“We couldn’t be more proud of our partnership with Wildflower or the power of VirtualEyes to change the way the U.S. Federal Government manages contracts and projects,” states VCSonline co-founder Nick Matteucci. “Since launching VPMi in 1998, the single goal for VPMi has always been to help customers reach their full potential through simple, sensible, and supportable project management solutions, and VirtualEyes does exactly that.” Matteucci continued, “By combining our expertise in building web-based project management software with Wildflower’s knowledge of U.S. Government contract management, we knew we had the best combination since chocolate met peanut butter.”
“SaaS adoption is highest in applications that support simplified, common business processes or large, distributed virtual workforce teams. Ease of use, rapid deployment, limited upfront investment in capital and staffing, plus a reduction in software management responsibility all make SaaS a desirable alternative to many on-premises solutions, and they will continue to act as drivers of growth,” said Sharon Mertz, research director at Gartner.

Modesto dentist Dr. Jim Woodbury has added the Sinsational Smile teeth whitening system to his list of treatment options.
The system is called “Sinsational Smile,” and Woodbury began offering it in January.
“I feel like this has real patient value, because although we’ve offered chairside whitening treatments in the past, I’ve never felt great about it because of all the time involved for the patients,” he says.
This teeth whitening method is completed in 20 minutes and there is no need for bleaching chairs. The treatment comes in the form of preloaded trays made of clear, pliable acrylic that the patient bites into. When used in combination with LED light, the whitening gel is activated and works at a faster rate.
With Sinsational Smile, patients who’ve never whitened before will see a drastic difference. Woodbury can attest to the product’s quality, because he has used it himself.
“It works great,” he says.
The treatment costs about $100 and how long it lasts depends upon each individual’s teeth and the foods they eat. Typically, if patients experience a dramatic change, their teeth may return to their former shade quicker.
Avoiding foods and drinks that stain the teeth such as coffee, tea, red wine and blueberries can help maintain the treatment’s effects longer. Using tobacco products also will shorten the time that teeth remain lighter.
For more information about Sinsational Smile, Dr. Woodbury’s Modesto, CA dentistry practice, or to schedule an appointment, please call (209) 521-8105 or visit Dr. Woodbury’s website:www.jimwoodburydds.com.
