Job loss across global markets is one of the most prominent ways in which the pandemic marked its presence through 2020. Although work-from-home has now become the new normal, the fact is that the abrupt shift to remote work did leave millions without a job. And while there is good news with availability of multiple Covid-19 vaccines, much of the uncertainty that global workforces experienced during the pandemic continues.

To expect the world to return to pre-pandemic days seems almost impossible for the simple reason that the Wuhan virus has literally reshaped our world — and it’s a change that…

You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.

Did you know that according to research from Rookieplay, 39% of all respondents said that they have turned down or decided not to pursue a job because of a perceived lack of inclusion at an organization?

This should serve as a wakeup call to organizations and businesses that are scrambling to keep up with productivity goals and retaining quality talent.

It’s all nice to preach about an inclusive work environment for all employees. However, how many corporations and business organizations are serious about pursuing this crucial positive workplace environment goal?

The pandemic has forced all of us, including businesses and…

There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will, Epictetus

“Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime.”

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” We’ve all heard different versions of this question as children. A child’s imagination is not restricted by boundaries so you can literally be anyone you want and do whatever you want. For an adult however, the reality is very different. …

We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. Native American proverb

Let me start by asking you this — what is your true vocation? By vocation I don’t mean the varied areas of interest in life that you think you can totally own and dominate. Given how connected we are and with any kind of information just a click away, it’s not uncommon to have moments when we see someone being good at what they do and think to ourselves — “oh you know what, I could totally do that. And do it better! If I wanted to of course.” The operative word here being “if I wanted to.”

So let…

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”– Walt Disney

Fifty five to sixty percent of people stick with their first choice, their routine, or their comfort zone for all of their lives. That is the same with businesses. Once you find the product that brings you your desired profit or makes you a household name, you stop. No more innovating or worrying about the future, right? Absolutely wrong. Even when you find your golden goose, you must be ready to let go of it for the future interests of your business.

Why? Stagnation is the mother of all business killers, just like necessity is the mother of invention. Want…

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” ― John Muir

The sole purpose of businesses is to sell. There you go, the truth is out. In today’s fast-paced economy, start-ups, want to make more money in the least amount of time possible.

The only way to do that is to sell, sell, and sell some more. If a business has to set ONE goal to succeed, the goal is often to sell more. Nobody wants to concentrate on products or services that can benefit them internally. All products are made to serve the customer and not the company.

But, concentrating only on selling and not on internal development can prove…

Everybody wants to reach the peak, but there is no growth on the top of a mountain. It is in the valley that we slog through, the lush grass and rich soil, learning and becoming what enables us to summit life’s next peak.

When well-intentioned experts create manuals to guide future entrepreneurs and businesses, it is normal to have an urge to follow without questioning. People might get fearful in straying from the norm, even if the norm is out of their aspirations or comfort zone. Convention guarantees success, or so people think.

Then, why isn’t every entrepreneur who followed the rules, successful?

You see, it is extremely important to be an exception when it serves your business or brand right. How are you different? What does YOUR business acumen say? Who is your audience? What technology does your business need? …

In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time. ― Leonardo da Vinci

Pelosi, Sanders, Feinstein, Trump, Warren, Biden — term limits, ever heard of it! Retire.

A president who knew North Korea could put a nuclear warhead on an ICBM back in 2013 and did nothing about it. Terrible.

Human rights? You allowed ISIS to do whatever it wanted and allowed WMD to be used in Syria and have destroyed every city from Baltimore to San Francisco to Chicago!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who allows a marine to languish in a Mexican prison for 8 months; Others got out 3 criminal college basketball players in China in 1 hour!

Some candidates soaked up millions of voters from ignorant illegals or public assistance recipients in NY and LA — who cares.

Selective abortion leads to less females being born (less minorities too). How asinine are feminists/minorities who believe in this?

Brennan, Biden, Comey, Biden’s son, Strzok, McCabe, Clapper — all corrupt bureaucrats who are about to be blasted by federal prosecutors and the truth. You weaponized the security apparatus of America for political reasons — this is not Russia — you are about to slammed while we need to create more jobs for us and bring those jobs back to America. Life is good.

Sorry — plastic straws is not a major issue but destroying terrorists, keeping taxes slow, dealing with China, Iran, and Russia, fighting the attack on the unborn, defending our right to defend ourselves — those are all major issues to any real American.

Why do you hang out with racists like Robert Byrd (a KKK member)? This is why we have prisons, and some people like former movie mogul Weinstein. Juanita Broaddrick was probably raped by Bill Clinton — some people ignore this. Sad.

It takes more than just a good looking body. You’ve got to have the heart and soul to go with it.

A true leader understands that a company’s success depends on the company culture, which in turn is built on the values and philosophies of the founders and leaders. A study was published in the Journal of Organizational Behavior in January 2015 showing that companies with good workplace culture made more profit and fared better overall.

So, what is the secret to creating a good company culture? Making generosity a habit and realizing it’s potential to be an investment.

How to create a “generous” company culture?

The only way to create a feasibly generous company culture is to put your employees…
