iphone, phone, remember
All of us have been in this embarrassing situation. We meet someone for the third or fourth time, only to realize we can’t remember what that person’s name is. Some of us are great with names and remember right away, but the rest of us don’t. Sure, we may find ways to disguise that we’ve...
human resources, HR certifications, certifications,
Human Resources professionals often hear about various types of available certifications. Frequently these certifications are listed as a requirement in job descriptions.  Whether you want to jumpstart your HR career or make yourself a more attractive promotion candidate, it’s important to determine which certifications you should focus on. To help you do just that, consider...
anxiety, depression, stress
Entrepreneurs are not strangers to anxiety and depression. They’re just as susceptible as the rest of the population, if not more so, to mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, sociopathy, schizophrenia, and more. I have written here on Entrepreneur about my problems with anxiety, especially while networking. May is National Mental Health Awareness Month in the U.S., so let’s...
deposit, check, cash, payment, money
If you’ve ever put hours of work into a project, only to spend months and months battling for payment, you can likely see the benefit of requiring a deposit.

While there’s no age limit to entrepreneurial success, it’s younger entrepreneurs who often get more attention in the news. Every day I get an email or two from PR firms asking me to write stories about a client, often a company run by a young founder. However, if you’re starting a new business, it’s not just...
freelancer, worker, businesswoman
If you’re a freelancer, you know all about the “gig economy” and how much it’s growing. According to U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics from 2016, 15 million people were self-employed. That’s more than 10 percent of all U.S. workers. By 2020, that figure is expected to rise significantly. That’s good news for entrepreneurs. It gives companies of...
vendor, vendor payments, computer, security
Many companies are taking part in a major digital transformation, redesigning vendor payment processes from traditional paper methods to digital payment solutions. The benefits of going digital are far reaching, affecting departments from HR to marketing to sales. Companies may find themselves saving time and money, improving speed and experiencing greater accuracy. There are many steps...
cleveland, cleveland downtown
The economic recovery hasn’t been as strong in every part of the U.S. as it has in Silicon Valley. With companies sending factories overseas and older people relocating to more sunny regions, many cities in the northern US are experiencing slow economic growth. Cleveland is one of them. Listed as second highest on the Distressed Community...
If a company’s goal is to increase profits, the answer isn’t always “increase revenue.” Instead, maybe your expenses are the real barrier between you and greater profitability. Often, business owners think, “If I could just make more money, then I could cover all the costs and finally increase my profit margin.” In reality, you might...
