7 Ideas for Sabbaticals That Will Recharge You for Success
If you’re feeling overwhelmed or burned out, and constantly daydream about running away from it all, maybe you need more than a vacation. Maybe what you need is a sabbatical. A sabbatical is a long-term, sustained absence from work that’s designed around a specific purpose or intention. It’s not an extended vacation but rather a refocusing of attention...
collaboration, teamwork, team
There is an old saying that “many hands make light work.” That is a primary benefit of collaboration, which helps drive productivity across teams and throughout a company. The result can mean a more efficient workflow that may drive greater cash flow. Whether you have in-house employees, a remote team or a combination of those, a collaborative...
HR Certification, HR, shaking hands
As an HR professional, you’re probably on the lookout for opportunities to advance your career, and with it, your salary. You can always choose to bide your time, focusing on building up work experience at your HR department, helping your company achieve its goals. But, you may want to explore ways to prove your worth,...
Nonfiction can teach you a lot about business and managing people. That said, most entrepreneurs are missing out on many valuable lessons by skipping the fiction aisle of the bookstore.

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...

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. By asking for an upfront fee, you’re at least guaranteeing that you’ll be paid for part of the work, even if things don’t work out. Additionally,...
human resources, HR, HR certification
In a competitive job market, you need to stand out. And if you own a business, you want to bring in talent with the education and depth of skills to help you accomplish your objectives. For HR professionals, these facts are part of the appeal of HR certifications (and recertifications). Achieving and maintaining your HR...
starting a new business, new ideas, business ideas, creativity
While there’s no age limit to entrepreneurial success, it’s younger entrepreneurs who often get more attention in the news.
