• The Importance of Soft Skills in the Workplace

    When it comes to skills in employment, the first line of emphasis is typically towards abilities, training and knowledge of specific skill sets. These are referred to as hard skills. Soft skills are often overlooked, but they also play an important role in day-to-day operations. Small business owners should place equal importance on hard and soft skills during the hiring process for new employees. In addition, current employees should be encouraged to develop soft skills if they are lacking in this area.

  • How to Fade Music on a PowerPoint

    PowerPoint presentations often use music to enhance slides or transition from one to the next. Yet when the music starts or stops suddenly, it jars the audience, distracting them from your message. You can edit your audio clips using an external application to prevent this, but you can also use PowerPoint's own audio editing tools. These tools will fade clips in and out, blending them more naturally into your presentation. They may also fade one piece into another, if a slide contains multiple audio clips.

  • How to Start and Run a Successful Bakery

    According to the 2008 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics analysis, bakeries accounted for just over 3 percent of the nation's employment with an expected decrease of nearly 2 percent over a 10-year period. With rampant competition from groceries and big-box retailers, the successful bakery must be prepared to meet the demands of its customers with the same convenience as its retailer competition but with higher quality. To achieve and maintain success in this demanding industry, the new bakery must be thoroughly prepared well before its grand opening.

  • How to Start a Business Legally

    Starting a new business requires many components. Some components involve the nuts and bolts of establishing business products and services. This is often an easier, more natural section of starting a business compared with the legal establishment of the entity.

Lack of permits may shut the business down. Working with local resources in the process of establishing the business help ensure you are legally registered.

    Credit card default is the failure of a company to pay its unsecured debt obligations or reach an arrangement with the lender.

  • Role of Government in Promoting Small Business

    Businesses create jobs and pay taxes, making it natural for government to want to help them start and thrive.

If you haven’t done so yet, contact your local and state economic development offices to see how they can help you.

  • Social Media Strategy for an Event Complex

    Social media provides an aspect of promotion that traditional forms of advertisement cannot – the ability to interact and turn your push campaigns into a conversation.

The key to successfully promoting these events online consists of having a strong social media strategy.

  • Safety Procedures & Rules in Industries

    Industrial safety procedures and rules date back to the 19th century when the United States enacted its first legislation to regulate the conditions of work in factories. They have since developed through federal and state legislation, voluntary organizational safety programs, and investigations to determine the state of industrial safety. In the modern day, the Department of Labor regulates industrial safety. There are four distinct aspects of industrial safety procedures and rules: development, communication, enforcement and benefits.

  • How to Request Insurance & Bonding From a Contractor

    An insured, bonded contractor offers more financial protection if something goes wrong or someone is injured during construction. It's not enough to rely on the contractor's word that he's got coverage, though. His insurance may have expired or he could be lying about having it. Make sure you ask for specific paperwork from your contractor detailing his insurance and bonding status.

  • Signs an Employee Is Close to Quitting

    Employee turnover occurs in any industry, with a variety of reasons for leaving the company, large or small. Employees typically keep their job-searching activities private until a new position is secured.

    Starting a video business involves developing a business plan, defining your market and choosing the right equipment. Training can be acquired through formal schooling, books, training course or by interning at a video company, but you must first decide what type of business you wish to operate.

The market you choose will dictate the equipment needed, and guide your training and educational needs.

    If you have ever missed a meeting because you did not get the memo, or, perhaps worse, prepared the wrong set of slides for a presentation thanks to misinformation in an email, you know the havoc that poor communication can wreak in an organization.

Focus on improving interpersonal relationships among your employees and you will soon notice a more positive work environment, clearer communication and increased levels of productivity.

  • Adding a YouTube Video to a Separate Tumblr Page

    Creating a new video post on your Tumblr blog automatically adds the post to the top of the blog’s homepage and news feed.
