Entrepreneurship
Traditionally, when employers have sought to reward top performers, they’ve relied on money. Whether in the form of a raise or a bonus, adding to your existing pay is one of the best ways to keep you around and make you feel appreciated. However, many small businesses are struggling to make budget on the revenue they...
When you think about it, websites have made giant improvements in appearance over the years. In the ’90s, businesses merely rushed to set up an online presence, resulting in an Internet full of electronic brochures.

Narcissistic handsome young man
You might’ve seen the latest news/study about the “Generation of Narcissists“ in your social media feed or favorite time-killer media site. It’s exactly what it sounds like: Due to too much coddling by parents, the trend of participation trophies, and basically every child being told they’re a unique snowflake, we might just have a whole generation of narcissists on...
