Besides Beauty

Shecy Pearls, having been successful in the Chinese jewelry industry for over thirteen years, just opened an online store in 2006, which is growing at a fast pace. Now it already catches up with lots of its competitors and becomes a leading online pearl jewelry supplier in China. “We have a positive company culture,” says Paul Yin, the CEO of Shecy Pearls.

25 is the average age of Shecy Pearl staff, each of which with at least a Bachelor’s Degree. They are full of ideas, energy and enthusiasm. “Everyone in our company can openly suggest their own ideas. They are hard workers. I always see them working late.” says Paul. “Well, they are hard players too! We have a monthly paid outing day on our company schedule. On this day we play sports, go for a hiking trip or American movies, etc.” He showed some of their photos, which exude youthful spirit, fun and unity. This is Shecy Pearls culture — being a hard worker and a hard player. A company’s culture is so important to its development. Intelligence and capability are not the only essential. When they are provided a chance to release work stress and improve communication with colleagues, they will achieve high performance during their work. “To manage your staff is prior to manage your company,” says Paul.

“Well, we also encountered lots of difficulties at very beginning, but we understand very well that it is normal for an online jewelry store. People hesitate when they are deciding to pay a big amount of money to a new online store. Read the rest of this entry »

The Most Beautiful Woman in the World Award

My adoration for women is actually a rather innocent one if I am allowed to judge myself. I will be more than happy to outline my criteria that define my own judgment, because it’s not righteous to be one’s own judge. But, I think I will let my results speak for themselves.

The most beautiful woman in the world, for most exotic beauty, goes to Jennifer Connelly. I cannot get her hair out my head from the movie Blood Diamond. Of course, she’s in the bushes in West Africa following the story of conflict diamonds and doesn’t have time to setup an appointment with a hairdresser. But when someone can be that gorgeous even under those circumstances, that’s what drives me wild. Forget the fact that I’ve been in love with her since I first saw her in Labyrinth and I’ve followed her career throughout some of my most favorite movies including House of Sand and FogDark Water, and He’s Just Not That Into You. Jennifer Connelly steals away with the most beautiful woman in the world for most exotic beauty.

The most beautiful woman in the world, for being an unexpected hottie, goes to Jenna Fischer. I started watching The Office when it first came out in 2005 and I noticed the cute receptionist behind the desk. I loved the way she flirted with Jim and dealt with Michael. I was actually rooting for Jim and now he finally is with her, with a child and the whole nine yards. But then, I saw her on the cover of Shape in November 2009. It seriously was one of those Wow moments. Who in the world is that? The hottest little hottie to grace the cover of Shape, and I had no idea that the cool, cute receptionist from The Office was that gorgeous. Jenna Fischer takes by a landslide the most beautiful woman in the world for being an unexpected hottie. Read the rest of this entry »
