True Confessions – Hot Orange Tea

Long ago, back before Google was turned into a verb, I looked up my now-husband’s webpage through Yahoo. I wanted to know more about the guy I had a crush on. And I wondered a lot more about him when I found a recipe for hot orange tea on his site.

I’ve learned that the hot orange tea recipe he had on his site – definitely delicious! I love it on a cold day – I’m drinking it today while it’s in the low 20s – but it’s great to drink cold too!

Enjoy this recipe!

A Survey on Consumer Type

My friend Randy was asked to take the VALS Survey recently, and after reading his results, I was intrigued.  It appears to be a great way of gaining a better understanding of your consumers. their motivation, and how they consume goods and services.

Looking on their site, it’s a short survey, so I checked it out.

My results are:

  • Primary Type: Innovators – dominant approach to life
  • Secondary Type: Achievers – a particular emphasis on the dominant approach
