The difference between fads and classics is something that runs throughout clothes, toys, cars, homes, books, businesses, and more. When we think of fads we think of something that has come and gone, and usually, we can tell that fads are going to be out the door eventually. There is a similar but different thread for classics. We believe that we can usually tell what classics are and that they will be here to stay. The timeshare advocacy industry is an example of something that has turned into what could be categorized as classic or staple industry. At Wesley Financial Group, we’re not going anywhere until all our clients are treated fairly. In addition, Wesley Financial Group can be said to be something of a trendsetter, which ties hand in hand with the idea of fads and classics.
When we think of the word trendsetter we often think of fashion, but it goes way beyond that. In fact, trendsetters span every industry and are often businesses. In Mike Templeman’s article in Entrepreneur, he talks about the ways in which businesses can be trendsetters. One of the things he recommends for businesses is “Thinking Like a Customer”. “We are all consumers. We all know what we need, like and think is cool. One way to be a trendsetter is to think like a consumer. What products or services would you love to see?” (Templeman, 2015). Of course, more important than responding to what customers and consumers think is cool is the ability to find where people need help. Wesley Financial Group was created to help people in need.
Templeman’s article continues, “Some of the best innovation originates from responding proactively to customers’ needs. Never underestimate the relationship you share with your loyal customer base. Their feedback is a reliable (and highly affordable) platform for exploring innovative ideas.”(Templeman, 2015). Indeed, at Wesley Financial Group, we respond “proactively to our customers’ needs.” We understand that our clients are the reason we are here, and they are of the utmost importance to us.
Fads That Came & Went
Fads come and go; and this includes clothes, toys, and more. In an article from NPR, Emily Sohn investigates why children love fad toys and why adults “are far from immune.”
“Toy fads in many ways resemble financial bubbles, suggests economic theory. Stock prices and home values, for instance, tend to depend not on how much the products are worth but on how much people are willing to pay for them. Those prices can escalate until a bubble bursts. In a similar way, stuffed Beanie Babies once sold for hundreds of dollars each. Today, Bergman says, it’s hard to even give them away.” (Sohn, 2017).
Unfortunately, trickery and deception in the timeshare industry don’t appear to be a fad. At Wesley Financial Group, we will be there to help you out of a sticky mire of a timeshare that may have you stuck. If we can help you get out of a timeshare or reduce your level of ownership due to duplicity or falsehood, we will. Sadly, fraud and deceitfulness are still a part of our everyday world, and that includes the timeshare industry. On the other hand, that is why companies like Wesley Financial Group in the timeshare advocacy industry exist – to help you if you have been the victim of fraud or deceit.
Classics That Are Here to Stay
Classic items are the complete opposite of fads. They are immovable, and they are here to stay. Prior to the invention of Levi’s Jeans, looking back in history, you may have been hard-pressed to believe that jeans would become so commonplace. Yet, here they are, and jeans are not only considered practical, but there are expensive jeans as well. You can wear jeans for just about anything. “From workaday outerwear to the laps of multi-billionaires, blue jeans have withstood the wear and tear of time as an American icon.” (Hackett, 2014). Blue jeans are just a small example of a classic. There are also classic works of literature.
Lucy Mangan wrote in The Guardian about what makes a book a classic, and the same can be attributed to other classics that are not books. “So, what makes a classic? It can’t just be that it’s old. A classic must have something else, something that has either caused it to endure or has, in the case of modern classics, inspired the faith that it will do so. And while parts of any book may date, there must be something about a true classic that remains relevant to children and adults alike across the generations. It becomes then, unfashionably but stubbornly, a question of quality.” (Mangan, 2011). If you take what Mangan has written about books considered classics, you can easily apply it to businesses as well. When a business is relevant it persists as well. It remains “relevant…across generations”. Presently, many find themselves saddled with a timeshare by means of fraud and need someone to help them. That is where Wesley Financial Group comes into play.
When we also look at businesses that have also blossomed into classics and are not just a passing fad, we can include Wesley Financial Group. When we look at Wesley Financial Group, we see a classic.
