For many employees, payday is up there with Christmas and birthdays — but even better since it comes around more than once a year. For employers, on the other hand, payday can be a never-ending and sometimes pretty stressful responsibility. While payroll services and software are readily available, employers may still have to devote a good chunk of time and grit to comply with both employment and tax laws to make sure payroll flows smoothly each pay period. Thankfully, there are some general guidelines to follow when it comes to basic payroll calculations. Read the rest of this entry

10 Laws of Power for Entrepreneurs continued…

Law VI: Seek Wise Council in Order to Learn How to Prosper
Entrepreneurs have to understand that you can’t do this all on your own. Help is needed for you to start your business and help will be needed for you to keep elevating to higher levels. Talk with people who are in the position you wish to place yourself within. Experienced people have the knowledge which you seek and can provide you with the guidance that helps you avoid mistakes that they have made themselves along their entrepreneurial journey. This means you have to put away your arrogance and humble yourself so that you can listen and learn. Find a mentor(s) that are all about ensuring your success. Don’t be afraid to reach out to people because you fear it shows weakness. It actually shows strengths that you are willing to seek advice in order to increase your capabilities that leads to you prospering. Read the rest of this entry

How to Create Your Own Economy

income stream
It’s approximated 7 billion people live in this world. How many of these people do you think actually contribute to the economic productivity within this world? Definitely not all, but does even half of the population have a significant contribution towards the economy? No, not even half. The world does not operate in this manner, and due to that fact only a small percentage of people have the opportunity to explore the abundance of this man-made world. The rest of us just get to sit back and wonder what if… Read the rest of this entry

An Examination of 2012

2012

The year of 2012 seemed to be a year that had a lot of great promise but sharply fell flat in delivering any generous returns on such promises. Our so-called leaders have increased their bickering and unwillingness to compromise, it seems the citizens of this country have gone mad and our push towards stability and progressive growth has stalled. Going into 2013 looks like the bad we were in is only going to get worst. That in itself is a very scary thought to ponder. Read the rest of this entry

The Coming Divide

divide

The world we live in today is very fragmented and divided. We are divided in our ideology, in our educational attainment, in our societies but probably most importantly in our wealth. Money, wealth, finances and social class are very discussed words in the world topics of today. These words point to the growing issue we all nearly face, not only as a nation but on a global scale. To say it plain and simple, “the rich continue to get richer while the poor get poorer.” Read the rest of this entry

Why a Diverse Income Stream is Needed

If you are dependent on one source of income I highly recommend that you discontinue the habit. In today’s economic environment, the volatile nature of uncertainty leads to the disruption of the normality in which people are accustomed to living within. That means when something is seen as normal it becomes a part of your natural function, leading you to believe its process is unchanging. Since we are talking about income; I will describe how careers and jobs become an illusionary trap in which people become fooled by their outward perception of stability. Read the rest of this entry

Unemployment, Low-Wages & Entrepreneurship

CNN Money recently had an article posted on its website called “The low-wage jobs explosion.” The article basically explained how the resurgence in the job market has largely been fueled by low-wage jobs. These are the type of jobs that can barely, if at all cover the basic necessities for one to live comfortably. Matter of fact let’s take out the word comfortably and just say to maintain a reasonable standard of living. This means a continual erosion of the middle class is occurring in our American society. As the middle class is progressively shifted downwards, government assistance is elevated in order for people to acquire the basic goods and services no longer afforded to them. And this is just low-wage jobs we are talking about so take into account the impact that unemployment is having on our overall economy. Read the rest of this entry

Redefining and Realizing The American Dream

I will go on record and say that the U.S. is definitely undergoing an economic reset, which will restructure the American Dream. I believe the days of overflowing prosperity and immense abundance are over for a while if not forever. This is due to the fact that as we reset our system we must purge out the excess that has left us bloated with deadweight. It is now time to burn off the toxic weight and operate within a lean mindset focused on efficiency. Realistically this means income levels may have to be reduced and some programs which require massive spending with no return will have to be scaled back. It may not be pleasing but tough times call for tough measures. Read the rest of this entry

The Underlying Issue

We are currently in an unsettling environment that has many people anxious and nervous as each day passes. There is anticipation for  any good news that will put an end to the misery that so many are experiencing as the economy and job market is momentarily non-existent. Everyone wants to know why things are so stagnant and why it is so hard for prosperity to reemerge after three years of weak conditions. So what exactly is the problem that prohibits our ability to grow and experience productivity that produces the great wealth we experienced prior to this economic meltdown?

Effective Communication: Part I

What does it mean to communicate effectively? Is talking and listening not the correct basis for communicating? The breakdown in what constitutes effective communication has been the direct cause of many business failures and is a huge cause of our ongoing economic struggles. Communicating effectively means to thoroughly understand a person or groups point of views and developing a means to produce their needs and wants in a mutually beneficial agreement.
