Business
The vision statement and the mission statement may sound similar. They are both important aspects of business planning, branding, and goal-setting. However, they serve very different purposes. The mission statement is about your company’s commitment to its existing (or soon-to-exist) relationship with customers. Your vision statement is all about your company’s future dreams. Where the...
How to write an effective executive summary
The executive summary is a staple of every business plan. Typically, it makes the first impression on an audience and is critically important for capturing the reader’s attention. No matter how strong the rest of your business plan might be, a weak summary can dissuade a potential investor or stakeholder from reading further. So your executive...
In the past, education systems all over the world used traditional, one-size-fits-all learning environments. Researchers eventually realized people don’t process information the same way, and teaching methods have evolved to fit how students best learn new information.

VA
One of the biggest challenges for entrepreneurs involves staffing and delegation. It can be hard to know when to hire full-time or put extra help in place and how to do it the right way.

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...
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...
