    The Department of Ethics and Business Law strives to be a leading center for education and scholarly inquiry into contemporary issues of ethics, law, business and society. Our faculty are respected scholars dedicated to developing thoughtful business leaders with insight into their ethical values and legal responsibilities.

    Navigating a Dynamic Legal Environment

    Rules and regulations have proliferated at all levels of the organization, and successful managers need to understand when and how to integrate legal considerations into their business planning and operations. Each Opus College of Business student is required to take one course concerning the legal environment in which businesses operate.

    Leaders are expected to be able to recognize the ethical dimensions of decisions and to choose well in difficult situations. Our courses acquaint students with tools of ethical decision-making and with typical ethical challenges, both domestic and international. Each Opus College of Business student is required to take at least one course on business ethics.

    The department offers a Legal Studies in Business concentration for undergraduate business majors. This interdisciplinary law and business program is one of only a few such programs in the country. We also offer a variety of business law and ethics courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels in order to provide additional, in depth content for those interested in specialized areas of business.

Our faculty are respected scholars dedicated to developing thoughtful business leaders with insight into their ethical values and legal responsibilities.

    About Ethics, Principles and Moral Values

    Simply put, ethics involves learning what is right or wrong, and then doing the right thing — but the right thing is not nearly as straightforward as conveyed in a great deal of business ethics literature. Most ethical dilemmas in the workplace are not simply a matter of Should Bob steal from Jack? or Should Jack lie to his boss?

    (Many ethicists assert there’s always a right thing to do based on moral principle, and others believe the right thing to do depends on the situation — ultimately it’s up to the individual.) Many philosophers consider ethics to be the science of conduct. Twin Cities consultants Doug Wallace and John Pekel (of the Twin Cities-based Fulcrum Group; 651-714-9033; e-mail at [email protected]) explain that ethics includes the fundamental ground rules by which we live our lives. Philosophers have been discussing ethics for at least 2500 years, since the time of Socrates and Plato. Many ethicists consider emerging ethical beliefs to be state of the art legal matters, i.e., what becomes an ethical guideline today is often translated to a law, regulation or rule tomorrow. Values which guide how we ought to behave are considered moral values, e.g., values such as respect, honesty, fairness, responsibility, etc. Statements around how these values are applied are sometimes called moral or ethical principles. (Extracted from Complete (Practical) Guide to Managing Ethics in the Workplace.)

    What is Business Ethics?

    The concept has come to mean various things to various people, but generally it’s coming to know what it right or wrong in the workplace and doing what’s right — this is in regard to effects of products/services and in relationships with stakeholders. Wallace and Pekel explain that attention to business ethics is critical during times of fundamental change — times much like those faced now by businesses, both nonprofit or for-profit. In times of fundamental change, values that were previously taken for granted are now strongly questioned. Many of these values are no longer followed. Consequently, there is no clear moral compass to guide leaders through complex dilemmas about what is right or wrong. Attention to ethics in the workplace sensitizes leaders and staff to how they should act. Perhaps most important, attention to ethics in the workplaces helps ensure that when leaders and managers are struggling in times of crises and confusion, they retain a strong moral compass. However, attention to business ethics provides numerous other benefits, as well (these benefits are listed later in this document).

    Note that many people react that business ethics, with its continuing attention to doing the right thing, only asserts the obvious ( be good, don’t lie, etc.), and so these people don’t take business ethics seriously. For many of us, these principles of the obvious can go right out the door during times of stress. Consequently, business ethics can be strong preventative medicine. Anyway, there are many other benefits of managing ethics in the workplace. These benefits are explained later in this document. (Extracted from Complete (Practical) Guide to Managing Ethics in the Workplace.)

    Managing Ethics in the Workplace

    Managing Ethics Programs in the Workplace

    Organizations can manage ethics in their workplaces by establishing an ethics management program. Brian Schrag, Executive Secretary of the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics, clarifies. Typically, ethics programs convey corporate values, often using codes and policies to guide decisions and behavior, and can include extensive training and evaluating, depending on the organization. They provide guidance in ethical dilemmas. Rarely are two programs alike.

    All organizations have ethics programs, but most do not know that they do, wrote business ethics professor Stephen Brenner in the Journal of Business Ethics (1992, V11, pp. 391-399). A corporate ethics program is made up of values, policies and activities which impact the propriety of organization behaviors.

    Bob Dunn, President and CEO of San Francisco-based Business for Social Responsibility, adds: Balancing competing values and reconciling them is a basic purpose of an ethics management program. Business people need more practical tools and information to understand their values and how to manage them. (Extracted from Complete (Practical) Guide to Managing Ethics in the Workplace.)

    Developing Codes of Ethics

    According to Wallace, A credo generally describes the highest values to which the company aspires to operate. It contains the `thou shalts.’ A code of ethics specifies the ethical rules of operation. It’s the `thou shalt nots. In the latter 1980s, The Conference Board, a leading business membership organization, found that 76% of corporations surveyed had codes of ethics.

    Some business ethicists disagree that codes have any value. Usually they explain that too much focus is put on the codes themselves, and that codes themselves are not influential in managing ethics in the workplace. Many ethicists note that it’s the developing and continuing dialogue around the code’s values that is most important. (Extracted from Complete (Practical) Guide to Managing Ethics in the Workplace.)

    Developing Codes of Conduct

    If your organization is quite large, e.g., includes several large programs or departments, you may want to develop an overall corporate code of ethics and then a separate code to guide each of your programs or departments. Codes should not be developed out of the Human Resource or Legal departments alone, as is too often done. Codes are insufficient if intended only to ensure that policies are legal. All staff must see the ethics program being driven by top management.

    Resolving Ethical Dilemmas and Making Ethical Decisions

    Perhaps too often, business ethics is portrayed as a matter of resolving conflicts in which one option appears to be the clear choice. For example, case studies are often presented in which an employee is faced with whether or not to lie, steal, cheat, abuse another, break terms of a contract, etc. However, ethical dilemmas faced by managers are often more real-to-life and highly complex with no clear guidelines, whether in law or often in religion.

    Assessing and Cultivating Ethical Culture

    Culture is comprised of the values, norms, folkways and behaviors of an organization. Ethics is about moral values, or values regarding right and wrong. Therefore, cultural assessments can be extremely valuable when assessing the moral values in an organization.

    Ethics Training

    The ethics program is essentially useless unless all staff members are trained about what it is, how it works and their roles in it. The nature of the system may invite suspicion if not handled openly and honestly. In addition, no matter how fair and up-to-date is a set of policies, the legal system will often interpret employee behavior (rather than written policies) as de facto policy. Therefore, all staff must be aware of and act in full accordance with policies and procedures (this is true, whether policies and procedures are for ethics programs or personnel management). This full accordance requires training about policies and procedures.

  • 16 Best Entrepreneurship and Business Leadership Articles of the Year #market #news

    #business articles

    #

    Learn how to transform your life for the better with 16 of the Web’s favorite entrepreneurship and leadership articles from this year. Guaranteed to encourage and inspire, these popular posts are absolute must-reads.

    1. Mentally Strong People: The 13 Things They Avoid

    Mental fortitude is essential for entrepreneurship, and in this wildly popular Forbes article, Cheryl Conner discusses what makes a mental strong individual and the 13 things they avoid at all costs (with tips from psychotherapist extraordinaire Amy Morin).

    2. How to Turn Small Talk Into Smart Conversation

    In this TED Ideas post, Chris Colin and Rob Baedeker break down how to transform an ordinary conversation into an extraordinary one. This pithy piece shares how to substitute one-line answers for stories, swap mundane response mirroring for absurd (but astute) observations, and how to get the most out of the often-mangled art of conversation.

    3. Richard Branson to Young Entrepreneurs: ‘Just Do It’

    In an Inc. piece by Oscar Raymundo, famous entrepreneur Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin empire (Virgin Airlines, Virgin Mobile, etc.) explains why risk is an inherent aspect of entrepreneurship. Sometimes you just have to go for it, no matter what others day. Richard did and I’d say thing are working out pretty well for him.

    4. Why Good Leaders Make You Feel Safe

    In this powerful TED Talk, Simon Sinek suggests that great leaders are those whom others feel they can trust–good leaders make people feel safe. Learn how to create a secure environment for your co-workers and employees while understanding that, while this undertaking is no easy task, the rewards and trust you’ll earn is invaluable. (A transcript is available too, so you don’t need to watch the video if you’d rather read.)

    5. The Top 5 Reasons Why ‘The Customer Is Always Right’ Is Wrong

    Alex Kjerulf of the Huffington Post explains why this classic maxim is a major mistake. Companies need to be willing to go to bat for their employees, and suggesting that the customer is always right can be detrimental to worker moral. Instead, show employees the respect they deserve and they’ll return the favor with superior customers service and more company pride.

    6. Why You Hate Work

    This New York Times article by Tony Schwartz and Christine Porath explains the modern employee’s psychological needs and how they aren’t being fulfilled. The article details an interesting study in which workers rated their fulfillment at their workplace, based on several different components (time for creative thinking, opportunities to do what you enjoy, a sense of community, connection to your company’s mission, etc.).

    This article isn’t doom and gloom though–it will help companies understand what they need to do in order to improve their workplace and create happier, more fulfilled employees (who also work better).

    7. Think You’re Too Old to Be an Entrepreneur? Think Again. (Infographic)

    Despite the trend in Silicon Valley, entrepreneurship ain’t just for the young. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs don’t even think about launching a startup until they are in their 30s, 40s, and even 50s, after gaining more work experience. This infographic from Entrepreneur shows successful individuals who took their own sweet time to find their calling. “Not all who wander are lost” indeed!

    8. 10 Reasons You Have to Quite Your Job in 2014

    James Altucher sees the writing on the wall–the middle class is vanishing and it’s time to take real control of your life. James writes, in this philosophical yet painfully acute LinkedIn piece, why your life needs to be more than a paycheck and how to use entrepreneurship to create a better future.

    9. 6 Toxic Behaviors That Push People Away: How to Recognize Them in Yourself and Change Them

    Kathy Caprino points out several toxic behaviors you may be harboring, sometimes without even realizing it! Adjusting these bad behavioral habits will make life exponentially better for you and for those around you. See if you’re guilty of any of these.

    10. 50 Signs You Might Be an Entrepreneur

    Entrepreneurs are a certain kind of individual and they display their aptitude with a number of traits. See if any on this list by John Rampton sound like you–if more than a few ring a bell, you’re likely to be an entrepreneur (and if you’re not yet, maybe it’s time for a career change)!

    11. How to Become a Millionaire by Age 30

    Dreams do come true–or they can, if you follow advice from Grant Cardone in this Entrepreneur article. Learn what you need to do to make the big bucks before you turn 30.

    12. Why Google Doesn’t Care About College Degrees

    In this article by Venture Beat, Gregory Ferenstein explains why Google cares less about college degrees and more about the quality and character of their hiring candidates.

    13. How Things Change

    This succinct story by Tech Crunch’s Greg Kumparak is a just a few short lines and tweets. Telling the tale of Brian Acton’s personal experience (creator of WhatsApp), it sweetly and simply shows how when one door closes, another down the hall opens. And it opens into a swimming pool of Jello, talking zebras, and saxophone-playing dinosaurs. Or something close to that anyway.

    Model articles of association for limited companies – Detailed guidance #how #to

    Model articles of association for limited companies

    Contents

    Amendments to model articles

    The model articles were amended by the Mental Health (Discrimination) Act 2013 on 28 April 2013 to remove the provision for terminating a director’s appointment on grounds of mental health. This provision could be found in:

    • paragraph 18(e) of the model articles for private companies limited by shares or by guarantee
    • paragraph 22(e) of the model articles for public companies

    You don’t have to remove the provision if it’s in your articles, but you can do so by amending your articles or by adopting the newer model articles.

    Which versions apply

    The latest model articles apply by default to all private and public limited companies incorporated on or after 28 April 2013.

    The older model articles continue to apply by default to all companies incorporated between 1 October 2009 and 27 April 2013 (inclusive).

    Table A

    Table A is the name given to the prescribed format for articles of association of a company limited by shares under the Companies Act 1985 and earlier legislation.

    When a company limited by shares was incorporated, it didn’t need to file articles if it used ‘Table A’ as its articles. If you want to see the regulations that govern the management of the company, you’ll need to refer to the relevant ‘Table A’ – the version which was in force at the date of the company’s incorporation.

    Later versions of ‘Table A’ don’t affect a company registered before the new versions took effect.

    The first prescribed format, made in The Joint Stock Companies Act, 1856, were called ‘Table B’, because they were preceded by a form of Memorandum of Association called ‘Form A’.

    The articles were first called ‘Table A’ in The Companies Act 1862 and the naming convention continued for the acts which followed.

    List of Table A

    The following are versions of ‘Table A’ prescribed by:

    Disclaimer

    The ‘Table A’ documents provided above have been reproduced from the original published Acts, Order or Instruments listed above and are correct to the best of our knowledge.

    I m an 18+ year Master s degreed veteran teacher of middle school and high school students and coach middle school cheerleaders. I have a beautiful 7th grade daughter who has had her struggles with mean girl stuff at times, yet we often discuss her actions and how they may have contributed in some way.

    She s actually doing a Social Studies Fair project on the possibility of the word bullying overused, because of it the VERY huge disparity and widening gap of what is to be considered bullying behavior. I d love to hear what others think. There are so many ways to look at it. And having grown up in the 80 s, when bullying was definitely a concern, but probably underreported, I often wonder if things are sometimes taken too far and reported as bullying , when it just may be poor problem-solving and/or ability to cope with a tough situation that may not really fall into a category of bullying but how can we define those categories? Though, I never want to take away from the true concern of actual bullying, as we know it is a REAL concern for many.
    What do you think.

    Thank you for your time!

    Bullying is social problem and should be handled with all attention required.

    Aandelen Kopen says:

    Bullying is part of being at school or at the workplace. You can try to ban it but you could also try a better approach. Make it a better environment where workers or children are more dependent on eachother. Bullying should be taken care of in the psychological way, not by making more rules.

    Hello, my name is Hanna and I am 17, I myself have been through bullying, and am still currently getting bullied. I am judged each and everyday for something that happened a year ago that I couldn t control. Action needs to be taken a lot more. I have often had many thoughts of suicide because the bullying got way to much for me to handle . Nothing about bullying is right, and I honestly don t think that a lot of people take it seriously until its to late. I don t think many people really understand how bad it really is and how much worse it is getting. There should really be a lot more done and a lot more people paying attention and watching students and peer carefully, maybe get them alone and talk to them and see if anything is going on. Take more precautions and be more aware and more observant. I know that is easier said than done because I never let my emotions show. I would always hide them from everyone, but that still doesn t mean someone couldn t tell that something was wrong. I may not have shown it, but people could tell when I was having a bad day. As I have said before, I just don t think people really take bullying seriously. More people should be aware of the the consequences of bullying and understand that what they say, can never be taken back, they can t take back the damage that has already been done. Making more rules against bullying doesn t mean people are going to follow these rules. Innocent children take their life, because immediate action isn t taking place. If more people start suffering the consequences of bullying and more people realize, hey maybe this is serious and we need to start paying attention to our actions, they will start to see that it s not right, and they need to stop before more consequences are being put into action.

    Chris davis says:

    Why do people bully it is so wrong but people should not be juged because of what there waring or what they look like there is girl i know named mone and she killed her self because she got bullied so all the bullies out there why do you bully people have you got bullied befor if so its not ok to bully because you got bullied so people need to watch what you say

    Hello, my name is Aryanna, and I myself have been bullied since elementary. All the bullying that has happened to me has lead me to self-harm, attempt suicide and push everyone away from me. No one should ever have to go through what many people (including me) have gone through. No one ever deserves to get bullied, and it can really harm someone. For those people out there that think they are alone, you aren t, I promise. Things get better, trust me.

    BULLYING IS UNWANTED .Some of the people at young age could give up their life because of bullying. Their must be supervision. parents who would care about their children. One of my GREAT wish :BULLYING would end.

    i just want to say i m so sorry for everyone on here who has been bullied at some point. i have not been bullied but i understand how it can affect someone i have gone through something similar to being bullied but he doesn t know he s doing it. i know its not bullying but it has similar affects that hurts. some advice that i have is stay close to your friends and to the people you love because having them is better that fighting back or falling apart. also everyone wants bullying to end but everyone should know that it wont. the one thing we can do is stop in where we are ant start from there.

    How to Save Money on Gas (with Pictures) #money #saving #articles

    How to Save Money on Gas

    Gas prices keep going up, and the money in our wallet keeps evaporating more quickly. There are many ways you can spend less money on gas and reduce your overall fuel consumption. But, you must think it through and begin formulating new plans! One technique that has been around for a while but has drawn more attention recently is hypermiling. However, use your head because some hypermiling techniques are illegal and extremely dangerous.

    Steps Edit

    Change those spark plugs often! Platinum spark plugs may claim to last 100,000 miles (160,000 km), but they have been known to foul up at just 75,000 miles (121,000 km). [citation needed ] Spark plugs are relatively inexpensive and (depending on the vehicle) easy to replace. If you’re not that handy or mechanically inclined, read some auto repair books or be-friend a mechanic.

    Limit your driving. This article includes ideas such as carpooling, combining trips and taking the first parking spot you find.

    Find good gas prices . This article offers tips about making sure you are paying a competitive price for the gas you do buy. Be sure to recognize the value of the gas you spend to go out of your way.

    Take care of your car . A properly maintained vehicle will run more efficiently and give you better mileage, which saves you money in gas.

    Fill up efficiently. This involves three things:

    • Consider whether to fill your tank up full or halfway. Filling up your tank halfway will reduce your car’s weight, increasing your mileage slightly. However, if your nearest gas station is significantly out of the way of your daily route, make sure to take into account the gas spent driving to the station and the value of your time.
    • Don’t top up your tank between fills. It is wasted money and bad for the environment because it invariably forces liquid fuel into the evaporative emissions system, where it overwhelms circuits that route fuel tank vapors to the engine. [citation needed ]
    • Wait until you have a quarter tank, but don’t push this any further. Doing this can extend your gas mileage because you are hauling a lighter fuel load. It also gives you the opportunity to buy more gas if you run across a bargain. However, in cold weather, you run an increased risk of condensation in the fuel tank. Running a car with less than a quarter tank can shorten the life of the electric fuel pump, and running on empty will often destroy the pump.

    Top off the air in the tires every few weeks to the car manufacturer’s recommended pressure. This is best done when the tires are cold (have not been driven on more than a mile or so). It is proper for them to have a few psi higher pressure after extensive driving, but filling them hot should generally be avoided unless they are very low on air to avoid inaccuracy. Excessive pressure adds very little efficiency and can cause bad handling and uneven tire wear. Some gas stations, notably Sheetz gas stations, have air pumps that are free to use and automatically inflate the tires to a pressure set on the pump. These are very convenient. (If an automatic pump seems to be adding an unexpectedly large amount of air, double-check its progress with a hand air gauge to avoid overfilling.)

    • In California, gas station operators are required to offer free air to customers who purchase fuel.

    If you are always stuck in rush hour traffic after work anyway, try to find something to do near your work until the traffic dies down, rather than try to fight through it.

    Learn how to coast between traffic lights, applying power only as needed to keep the car rolling (more or less) with traffic. Learn to judge terrain and use engine braking to its full potential to keep the car moving ‘for free’, and save more gas over time.

    Most car modifications do not improve mileage. Extra wings add drag. Power improvements often hurt mileage. However, if your car is turbocharged, chiptuning may result in a mileage boost. The mileage boost will be canceled out if you drive more aggressively due to power improvements.

    Keep meticulous records of what you spend and how many miles you drive so you can quickly spot changes in vehicle performance. It will also help focus you on the goal of saving.

    A manual transmission saves an average $1000 on the cost of a new vehicle, and eliminates routine transmission maintenance that an automatic transmission requires (and most people never do this maintenance once the warranty is up – so a used car with an automatic can be a risky purchase). In some cases, a manual transmission gets slightly better mileage overall than an automatic transmission.

    Every MPH faster yields you less advantage than the last one. Going 10 mph (16 km/h) is a big difference over 5 mph (8.0 km/h), but there is very little difference between 55 mph (89 km/h) and 60 mph (97 km/h), unless you are on a very long trip. Many people mindlessly speed wherever they go, and gain absolutely nothing but a heftier fuel bill. Assuming everything goes perfectly (and when does it?) going 5 mph (8.0 km/h), even 15 mph (24 km/h) faster on a highway for a short trip will yield nothing but aggravation as you keep catching up to slower traffic.

    Many of these tips change slightly if your engine is turbocharged or diesel. For instance, diesel engines use almost no fuel while idling. Diesel trucks will often be left idling all night to provide heat or power for the trucker inside the cab, at the cost of relatively little fuel.

    Get a smartphone app that helps to find the cheapest gas.

    Often the right-most lanes keep moving more than the left-most in areas prone to traffic-jams. Vehicles continue to exit, which keeps leaving ‘gaps’ to fill in.

    When To Sell A Mutual Fund

    Mutual fund articles

    Mutual fund articles

    If your mutual fund is yielding a lower return than you anticipated, you may be tempted to cash in your fund units and invest your money elsewhere. The rate of return of other funds may look enticing, but be careful; there are both pros and cons to the redemption of your mutual fund shares. Let’s examine the circumstances in which liquidation of your fund units would be most optimal and when it may have negative consequences.

    Mutual Funds Are Not Stocks

    Mutual funds are not singular entities; they are portfolios of financial instruments, such as stocks and bonds, chosen by a portfolio or fund manager in accordance with the fund’s strategy. An advantage of this portfolio of assets is diversification. There are many types of mutual funds, and their degrees of diversification vary. Sector funds, for instance, will have the least diversification, while balanced funds will have the most. Within all mutual funds, however, the decline of one or a few of the stocks can be offset by other assets within the portfolio that are either holding steady or increasing in value.

    Because mutual funds are diverse portfolios rather than single entities, relying only on market timing to sell your fund may be a useless strategy since a fund’s portfolio may represent different kinds of markets. Also, because mutual funds are geared toward long-term returns, a rate of return that is lower than anticipated during the first year is not necessarily a sign to sell.

    When you are cashing-in your mutual fund units, there are a couple of factors to consider that may affect your return:

    • Back-end loads – If you are an investor who holds a fund that charges a back-end load, the total you receive when redeeming your units will be affected. Front-end loads, on the other hand, are sales fees charged when you first invest your money into the fund. So, if you had a front-end sales charge of 2%, your initial investment would have been reduced by 2%. If your fund has a back-end load, charges will be deducted from your total redemption value. For many funds, back-end loads tend to be higher when you liquidate your units earlier rather than later, so you need to determine if liquidating your units now is optimal.
    • Tax consequences – If your mutual fund has realized significant capital gains in the past, you may be subject to capital gains taxes if the fund is held within a taxable account. When you redeem units of a fund that has a value greater than the total cost, you will have a taxable gain. The IRS has more detailed information on capital gains and their calculations in “Publication 564: Mutual Fund Distributions.”

    Do keep in mind that even if your fund is geared to yielding long-term rates of returns, that does not mean you have to hold onto the fund through thick and thin. The purpose of a mutual fund is to increase your investment over time, not to demonstrate your loyalty to a particular sector or group of assets or a specific fund manager. To paraphrase Kenny Rogers, the key to successful mutual fund investing is “knowing when to hold ’em and knowing when to fold ’em.”

    The following four situations are not necessarily indications that you should fold, but they are situations that should raise a red flag:

    Change in a Fund’s Manager

    Change in Strategy

    If you researched your fund before investing in it, you most likely invested in a fund that accurately reflects your financial goals. If your fund manager suddenly starts to invest in financial instruments that do not reflect the mutual fund’s original goals, you may want to re-evaluate the fund you are holding. For example, if your small-cap fund starts investing in a few medium or large-cap stocks, the risk and direction of the fund may change. Note that funds are typically required to notify shareholders of any changes to the original prospectus.

    Additionally, some funds may change their names to attract more customers, and when a mutual fund changes its name, sometimes its strategies also change. Remember, you should be comfortable with the direction of the fund, so if changes bother you, get rid of it.

    The Fund Becomes Too Big

    When Your Personal Investment Portfolio Changes

    Besides changes in the mutual fund itself, other changes in your personal portfolio may require you to redeem your mutual fund units and transfer your money into a more suitable portfolio. Here are two reasons which might prompt you to liquidate your mutual fund units:

    • The need to rebalance your portfolio – If you have a set asset allocation model to which you would like to adhere, you may need to rebalance your holdings at the end of the year in order to return your portfolio back to its original state. In these cases, you may need to sell or even purchase more of a fund within your portfolio to bring your portfolio back to its original equilibrium. You may also have to think about rebalancing if your investment goals change. For instance, if you decide to change your growth strategy to one that provides steady income, your current holdings in growth funds may no longer be appropriate.
    • Need a tax break – If your fund has suffered significant capital losses and you need a tax break to offset realized capital gains of your other investments, you may want to redeem your mutual fund units in order to apply the capital loss to your capital gains.

    A few days ago the Public Broadcasting Service announced it was returning a $3.5-million grant it had received from a Texas billionaire to fund a series of documentaries about the “pension peril” — the costs to cities and states of their public employee retirement obligations. PBS took the action after a report in the tech news website PandoDaily exposed the conflict of interest underlying the original donation. That was the good news. The bad news was that PBS had accepted the funding from a self-interested billionaire in the first place.

    Toyota Motor Corp. plans to move large numbers of jobs from its sales and marketing headquarters in Torrance to suburban Dallas, according to a person familiar with the automaker’s plans. The move, creating a new North American headquarters, would put management of Toyota’s U.S. business close to where it builds most cars for this market. North American Chief Executive Jim Lentz is expected to brief employees Monday, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly. Toyota declined to detail its plans.

    Something stinks in Irwindale. In recent months, officials in the largely industrial San Gabriel Valley city have appeared to be on a crusade to shut down Huy Fong Foods, the company that makes a wildly popular Sriracha sauce, for emitting chili and garlic odors that bother some neighbors. While a city should protect residents from harmful and/or unpleasant fumes, Irwindale’s aggressive and unreasonable tactics have threatened to drive a home-grown enterprise out of state and bolstered California’s unfortunate reputation as a bad place to do business.

    IMac delays blamed on its popularity Apple Inc. said the popularity of its new iMacs has led to shipment delays, causing two-week waits for customers ordering a 27-inch version of the desktop computer through the company’s website. Apple started selling updated versions of its all-in-one iMac computer in October. The Apple fan site AppleInsider.com, citing resellers, said some buyers of the 27-inch models have complained about flickering screens and yellow-tinged displays — problems that Apple may be delaying production to fix. Users also have reported screen malfunctions on the iMac discussion board at Apple’s website.

    It’s the question on the minds of many in Los Angeles’ film community: Does Gov. Jerry Brown get how badly the state’s film and TV industry has been squeezed by runaway production? Kish Rajan, director of the Governor’s Office of Business & Economic Development, offered some reassuring words to film commissioners and industry executives who gathered in Hollywood on Thursday for an annual breakfast hosted by the California Film Commission. Rajan stopped short of saying whether Brown would rally behind a bill winding through the Assembly that would significantly expand California’s film and TV tax credit program, which allocates $100 million annually but is due to run out of funds next year.

    Swiss pharmaceutical titan Novartis AG on Tuesday announced an overhaul of its operations that involved several multibillion-dollar deals with GlaxoSmithKline intended to allow Novartis to focus on its oncology business and boost profitability, the companies said.

    The six brothers and sisters, with a gap of 31 years from eldest to youngest, gathered in the winter near the first anniversary of their father’s death to discuss some problems about the family business. It’s also the city’s treasured sports team – the Lakers. The team was nose-diving in the standings, losing the interest of fans, and grinding toward its worst season since the team moved to Los Angeles in 1960. So Jeanie Buss posed an elementary question to her siblings: What was going on with the Lakers?

    Saku Koivu saw his retiring teammate, friend and Finnish countryman Teemu Selanne skate around the arena bathed in cheers last week in the Ducks’ final regular-season home game. Moved, of course, Koivu quickly set aside the moment that’s so close to home. Because there are still games to win. Koivu, 39, could be just as close to retirement as Selanne, but the 18-year NHL veteran center hasn’t officially announced his intentions. “Very private guy, very unselfish – been like that a long time,” Koivu’s linemate Andrew Cogliano said.

    What s the difference between a corporation and an LLC?

    Get started today

    Ask away. We have answers.

    Common questions

    What s the difference between a C corporation and an S corporation?

    The IRS allows corporations to choose to be taxed as either a C corporation or an S corporation. Income from C corporations are subject to double taxation; that is, the corporation pays taxes on its net income and then the shareholders also pay taxes on the income that they receive from the corporation.

    S corporations have only one level of taxation. The shareholders still have to pay taxes on money that they receive from the corporation, but an S corporation does not pay taxes on its net income. While the S corporation is popular among small business owners, C corporations have greater tax planning flexibility.

    How does a corporation protect my personal assets?

    If a business operates as a corporation, the business owners, called shareholders, are not personally liable for debts or other claims against the corporation. That s because the corporation is a separate legal entity from its owners. If a corporation complies with the formalities required for it to be treated as a separate legal entity, then anyone seeking to collect a debt from, or enforce a claim against, a corporation, would not be able to collect from the shareholders themselves. They would only be able to pursue the assets held in the name of the corporation.

    Why do many people choose to form their corporation in Delaware?

    Delaware is a very popular place in which to form corporations. However, the primary benefits apply to larger public corporations or those planning to go public. Delaware s laws provide heightened protection for board members against lawsuits brought by shareholders, and Delaware has a court exclusively dedicated to resolving corporate disputes. These benefits don t mean much to smaller corporations. Keep in mind that if a corporation forms in Delaware and does business in another state, the corporation would be required to file additional paperwork, and pay any taxes and/or fees required to do business in that state. Given those factors, many smaller corporations keep it simple and form in the state in which they plan to do business.

    An employer identification number (EIN), also known as a federal tax identification number, is used to identify a business entity for tax purposes. It s like a Social Security number, but for a business. In general, most businesses need an EIN. The only reason a business would not get an EIN is if it has only one owner, elects to be treated as a sole proprietor for tax purposes, and does not want to open a separate business bank account. In this case, the owner would use their Social Security number as the business identifier. However, there are disadvantages to this approach, namely the risk of liability.

    How are LLCs taxed?

    Unlike a corporation, LLCs have some flexibility in how they re taxed. Depending on how many members and the type of tax treatment the owner selects, the LLC can be taxed as either a corporation, partnership or as part of the owner s personal tax return (called a disregarded entity ). By default, an LLC with two or more members are taxed as a partnership, unless they file an IRS Form 8832 to elect to be treated as a corporation. If the LLC has only one owner, it will be taxed as a sole proprietor, unless the owner files Form 8832. It s not necessary to decide which tax treatment until after your business is formed. You have up to 12 months to decide and can speak to an accountant if you need help making this decision.

    What is a registered agent?

    A registered agent (sometimes called a resident agent or statutory agent) is a person or business authorized to accept important legal documents on behalf of a business. States require businesses to provide the name of their registered agent at the time they form their business entity. While you can be your own registered agent, there are disadvantages. You have to be available during regular business hours and your information goes on the public record. If you miss a filing deadline, you risk being fined or shut down. Our registered agent service can ensure you receive important business documents, sort through junk mail and keep your information private.

    16 Best Entrepreneurship and Business Leadership Articles of the Year #business #article

    #business articles

    #

    Learn how to transform your life for the better with 16 of the Web’s favorite entrepreneurship and leadership articles from this year. Guaranteed to encourage and inspire, these popular posts are absolute must-reads.

    1. Mentally Strong People: The 13 Things They Avoid

    Mental fortitude is essential for entrepreneurship, and in this wildly popular Forbes article, Cheryl Conner discusses what makes a mental strong individual and the 13 things they avoid at all costs (with tips from psychotherapist extraordinaire Amy Morin).

    2. How to Turn Small Talk Into Smart Conversation

    In this TED Ideas post, Chris Colin and Rob Baedeker break down how to transform an ordinary conversation into an extraordinary one. This pithy piece shares how to substitute one-line answers for stories, swap mundane response mirroring for absurd (but astute) observations, and how to get the most out of the often-mangled art of conversation.

    3. Richard Branson to Young Entrepreneurs: ‘Just Do It’

    In an Inc. piece by Oscar Raymundo, famous entrepreneur Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin empire (Virgin Airlines, Virgin Mobile, etc.) explains why risk is an inherent aspect of entrepreneurship. Sometimes you just have to go for it, no matter what others day. Richard did and I’d say thing are working out pretty well for him.

    4. Why Good Leaders Make You Feel Safe

    In this powerful TED Talk, Simon Sinek suggests that great leaders are those whom others feel they can trust–good leaders make people feel safe. Learn how to create a secure environment for your co-workers and employees while understanding that, while this undertaking is no easy task, the rewards and trust you’ll earn is invaluable. (A transcript is available too, so you don’t need to watch the video if you’d rather read.)

    5. The Top 5 Reasons Why ‘The Customer Is Always Right’ Is Wrong

    Alex Kjerulf of the Huffington Post explains why this classic maxim is a major mistake. Companies need to be willing to go to bat for their employees, and suggesting that the customer is always right can be detrimental to worker moral. Instead, show employees the respect they deserve and they’ll return the favor with superior customers service and more company pride.

    6. Why You Hate Work

    This New York Times article by Tony Schwartz and Christine Porath explains the modern employee’s psychological needs and how they aren’t being fulfilled. The article details an interesting study in which workers rated their fulfillment at their workplace, based on several different components (time for creative thinking, opportunities to do what you enjoy, a sense of community, connection to your company’s mission, etc.).

    This article isn’t doom and gloom though–it will help companies understand what they need to do in order to improve their workplace and create happier, more fulfilled employees (who also work better).

    7. Think You’re Too Old to Be an Entrepreneur? Think Again. (Infographic)

    Despite the trend in Silicon Valley, entrepreneurship ain’t just for the young. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs don’t even think about launching a startup until they are in their 30s, 40s, and even 50s, after gaining more work experience. This infographic from Entrepreneur shows successful individuals who took their own sweet time to find their calling. “Not all who wander are lost” indeed!

    8. 10 Reasons You Have to Quite Your Job in 2014

    Canadian prime minister makes 1st visit to Trump’s White House

    WATCH Canadian prime minister makes 1st visit to Trump’s White House

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau arrived at the White House Monday, becoming the third world leader to meet with President Donald Trump face to face.

    The two leaders couldn’t be more different.

    “Because as we know, relationships between neighbors are pretty complex, and we won’t always agree on everything. But because of our deep abiding respect for one another, we’re able to successfully navigate those complexities and still remain the closest of allies and friends,” Trudeau said today at the White House during a joint press conference with President Trump.

    Trump added, “We are going to have a great relationship with Canada. Maybe as good or better, hopefully, than ever before.”

    Trudeau, 45, is the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. He began his career as a school teacher and advocate for youth and environmental issues before entering politics. Trump made his fortune as a real estate and media mogul.

    As Trump received harsh criticism from U.S. allies for his heated and often divisive campaign rhetoric, Trudeau was coined the anti-Trump in several publications and on social media. While on the campaign trial, Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. Days later, Trudeau personally greeted dozens of Syrian immigrants in the Toronto International Airport.

    “I don’t think it comes as a surprise to anyone that I stand firmly against the politics of division, the politics of fear, the politics of intolerance or hateful rhetoric,” Trudeau said in a town hall in December 2015 when asked about Trump’s campaign rhetoric. “We need to remain focused on keeping our communities safe, keeping our communities united, instead of trying to build walls and scapegoat communities.”

    The two leaders’ differences set the stage for what could be a tense discussion over how to handle the Syrian refugee crisis and defense cooperation in the Middle East.

    While president, Trump is battling a court ruling that stops his executive order banning most immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries. After issuing the order, Trudeau, without mentioning Trump’s action directly, tweeted a pointed rebuke.

    “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada,” the tweet read.

    To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada

    President Trump has said he wants to bring to the U.S. a total of 50,000 refugees worldwide in 2017, down from 85,000 in Obama’s final year in office. The Canadian government reports that Canada has taken in over 40,000 Syrian refugees since November 4, 2015 alone.

    The number of refugees who come to the U.S. this year could also be affected by Trump’s executive order, which in addition to temporarily barring entry into the U.S. of people from seven Muslim-majority nations – Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — also suspends refugee admissions from any country for 120 days and indefinitely bars the entry of Syrian refugees.

    While Trudeau may privately find Trump’s order in opposition to values of inclusiveness and openness he campaigned upon, the Canadian leader will have little choice but to seek close cooperation with the new administration on other issues, especially trade.

    Throughout his campaign, candidate Trump blasted the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), calling it a “terrible deal, a total disaster for the United States from its inception.”

    As president, he has indicated he will follow up on his promise to “renegotiate” or “withdraw” from the deal.

    “We’re redoing NAFTA, we’re doing a lot of our trade deals, and we’re negotiating properly with countries, even countries that are allies,” Trump said on Feb. 2. “A lot of people taking advantage of us, a lot of countries taking advantage of us, really terribly taking advantage of us.”

    NAFTA, the trilateral trade agreement between Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. was negotiated by President George H. W. Bush, but passed through Congress and was signed into law under President Bill Clinton in 1994. It has gradually eliminated most tariffs on goods traded between the three countries and created one of the largest free trade zones in the world.

    But ever since its implementation, the deal has been studied and debated as to how it has affected the American economy.

    Studies have shown economists largely agree that NAFTA has produced benefits, which Trump say cost of American jobs.

    In a 2012 survey of economic experts by the University of Chicago ’s Initiative on Global Markets, all of them said they either “strongly agree,” “agree,” or are “uncertain” that U.S. citizens have been better off with NAFTA than they would have been if the trade rules for the U.S. Canada and Mexico prior to NAFTA had remained in place. None of the experts said they “disagreed” or “strongly disagreed.”

    A 2012 report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce commended the “remarkable results of NAFTA” for the rise in U.S. commerce with Canada and Mexico.

    “U.S. trade in goods and services with Canada and Mexico rose from $337 billion in 1993 to $1.182 trillion in 2011. Each day, the United States conducts over $3.2 billion in trade with its North American neighbors,” the report stated.

    But while overall trade has greatly increased between the three nations, the U.S. has a significant trade deficit in goods with both of its neighbors.

    (L-R) Mexican President Enrique Pena Neito Mexican President Enrique Pena Neito and President Barack Obama stand in front of Parliament Hill for a group photo during the North America Leaders’ Summit, June 29, 2016, in Ottawa, Canada.

    In 2016, the deficit with Mexico was $63.2 billion, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. It was $11.2 billion with Canada (though the margin of that deficit is falling).

    The Economic Policy Institute (EPI), a left-leaning think tank, said that the trade deficit is costing American jobs.

    “By 2010, the U.S. had a trade deficit with Mexico that displaced 682,900 jobs,” EPI said in a study.

    Trump has cited the U.S. trade deficit with Mexico as a reason for wanting to scrap NAFTA.

    “You say, who negotiates these deals?” Trump asked crowds at a rally in Philadelphia days after his inauguration. “Not to mention, millions of jobs and thousands and thousands of factories and plants closing down all over our country.”

    Trudeau, who has defended free trade, has said he is open to discussing a renegotiation of NAFTA with the U.S.

    But any renegotiation will take months, if not years. So far the Trump administration has not laid out specific plans for how the deal may be changed. How it is altered will determine if Congress has to get involved.

    Trump has already met with top House and Senate members who deal with financial issues including trade and tax reform. A spokesman for Trudeau confirmed in January that meetings between Canadian officials and Trump’s advisers about renegotiating NAFTA have already occurred.

    During his joint press conference today with Trudeau, Trump said, “We have a very outstanding trade relationship with Canada. We will be tweaking it. We will be doing certain things that are going to benefit both of our countries.”

    How to Start a Data Storage Business

    Opening a data storage business? This article discusses everything you ought to think about before starting a data storage business.

    Wondering how to start a data storage business? We take you step-by-step from start to success.
    (article continues below)

    Creating Business Plans for a Data Storage Business

    Does your data storage business have a business plan? If not, your company is lacking a critical business tool. With the right ingredients, your data storage company’s business plan will serve as a blueprint for success.

    To assist your efforts, you may want to consider enlisting the aid of a professional business plan writer .

    Time and time again, the best entrepreneurs we see rely on professionally crafted plans to guide their decision making. But no matter how skilled they are, business plan writers can’t be effective without the direct input of the business owner.

    Startup entrepreneurs are well advised to materially participate in the writing process, even after they have engaged a proven professional.

    Check Out Competitors

    Before you open a data storage business in your area, it’s essential to find out how you will fit in the competitive landscape. We’ve provided the link below to help you get a list of local competitors nearby. Complete the form by entering your city, state and zip code to get a list of data storage businesses that are close by.

    If there’s too much competition, it may be wise to consider starting the business in a less competitive marketplace.

    Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor

    If you want to open a data storage business it’s a smart move to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. It’s very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?

    However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a data storage business in a different city may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, given that you don’t compete with them in their area. Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup entrepreneurs. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

    How do you locate an owner of a data storage business that lives outside of your area?

    We can help. Follow the link below, try a few city/state combos or zipcodes, and then start calling!

    Should You Buy or Start a Data Storage Business?

    Tough decisions are what business ownership is all about. And one of the first decisions you’ll have to make is whether to start a business from scratch or buy an existing data storage business .

    In general, purchased data storage businesses fare better than startups, at least during the initial few years. When you buy an established data storage business, you gain access to a functional business operation with a customer base and a steady revenue stream.

    Entrepreneurs who are committed to a highly unique value proposition may need to pursue a startup approach. However, in today’s business-for-sale marketplace, there is an abundance of data storage businesses worth considering.

    Franchising May Be a Better Way to Go

    Recognize that your chances of doing well in business zoom upwards when you franchise and benefit from the prior work of others and their lessons learned.

    Before starting a data storage business, you may want to assess whether franchise opportunities in your space might help you avoid common entrepreneurial mistakes.

    The link below gives you access to our franchise directory so you can see if there’s a franchise opportunity for you. You might even find something that points you in a completely different direction.

    A few days ago the Public Broadcasting Service announced it was returning a $3.5-million grant it had received from a Texas billionaire to fund a series of documentaries about the “pension peril” — the costs to cities and states of their public employee retirement obligations. PBS took the action after a report in the tech news website PandoDaily exposed the conflict of interest underlying the original donation. That was the good news. The bad news was that PBS had accepted the funding from a self-interested billionaire in the first place.

While a city should protect residents from harmful and/or unpleasant fumes, Irwindale’s aggressive and unreasonable tactics have threatened to drive a home-grown enterprise out of state and bolstered California’s unfortunate reputation as a bad place to do business.

    A few days ago the Public Broadcasting Service announced it was returning a $3.5-million grant it had received from a Texas billionaire to fund a series of documentaries about the “pension peril” — the costs to cities and states of their public employee retirement obligations. PBS took the action after a report in the tech news website PandoDaily exposed the conflict of interest underlying the original donation. That was the good news. The bad news was that PBS had accepted the funding from a self-interested billionaire in the first place.

    Toyota Motor Corp. plans to move large numbers of jobs from its sales and marketing headquarters in Torrance to suburban Dallas, according to a person familiar with the automaker’s plans. The move, creating a new North American headquarters, would put management of Toyota’s U.S. business close to where it builds most cars for this market. North American Chief Executive Jim Lentz is expected to brief employees Monday, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly. Toyota declined to detail its plans.

    Sue Herera and Maria Bartiromo are two of the best-known faces in financial journalism, a world once dominated by white men in suits. Both women, in recent interviews, expressed their thoughts on the stock market, the booming demand for business news and their ever-busier lives. Sue Herera, 41, grew up in Brentwood. Her father was a shoe wholesaler and her mother a homemaker.

    Something stinks in Irwindale. In recent months, officials in the largely industrial San Gabriel Valley city have appeared to be on a crusade to shut down Huy Fong Foods, the company that makes a wildly popular Sriracha sauce, for emitting chili and garlic odors that bother some neighbors. While a city should protect residents from harmful and/or unpleasant fumes, Irwindale’s aggressive and unreasonable tactics have threatened to drive a home-grown enterprise out of state and bolstered California’s unfortunate reputation as a bad place to do business.

    Pots were boiling, pastries were baking and bodies were moving Wednesday as students at Aliso Niguel High School prepared a special luncheon to announce the start of an internship program to teach students the restaurant business. Students spend 15 hours a week working at local restaurants as part of their Culinary Arts Department curriculum. They also may receive community college credit.

    IMac delays blamed on its popularity Apple Inc. said the popularity of its new iMacs has led to shipment delays, causing two-week waits for customers ordering a 27-inch version of the desktop computer through the company’s website. Apple started selling updated versions of its all-in-one iMac computer in October. The Apple fan site AppleInsider.com, citing resellers, said some buyers of the 27-inch models have complained about flickering screens and yellow-tinged displays — problems that Apple may be delaying production to fix. Users also have reported screen malfunctions on the iMac discussion board at Apple’s website.

    It’s the question on the minds of many in Los Angeles’ film community: Does Gov. Jerry Brown get how badly the state’s film and TV industry has been squeezed by runaway production? Kish Rajan, director of the Governor’s Office of Business & Economic Development, offered some reassuring words to film commissioners and industry executives who gathered in Hollywood on Thursday for an annual breakfast hosted by the California Film Commission. Rajan stopped short of saying whether Brown would rally behind a bill winding through the Assembly that would significantly expand California’s film and TV tax credit program, which allocates $100 million annually but is due to run out of funds next year.

    Swiss pharmaceutical titan Novartis AG on Tuesday announced an overhaul of its operations that involved several multibillion-dollar deals with GlaxoSmithKline intended to allow Novartis to focus on its oncology business and boost profitability, the companies said. The spate of deals follows recent consolidations in the pharmaceutical industry with large price tags, including the $5.6-billion acquisition of an Anaheim specialty drug firm by Irish pharmaceutical company Mallinckrodt this month.

    The six brothers and sisters, with a gap of 31 years from eldest to youngest, gathered in the winter near the first anniversary of their father’s death to discuss some problems about the family business. It’s also the city’s treasured sports team – the Lakers. The team was nose-diving in the standings, losing the interest of fans, and grinding toward its worst season since the team moved to Los Angeles in 1960. So Jeanie Buss posed an elementary question to her siblings: What was going on with the Lakers?

    Saku Koivu saw his retiring teammate, friend and Finnish countryman Teemu Selanne skate around the arena bathed in cheers last week in the Ducks’ final regular-season home game. Moved, of course, Koivu quickly set aside the moment that’s so close to home. Because there are still games to win. Koivu, 39, could be just as close to retirement as Selanne, but the 18-year NHL veteran center hasn’t officially announced his intentions. “Very private guy, very unselfish – been like that a long time,” Koivu’s linemate Andrew Cogliano said.

    INDIO, Calif. – Dee Dee Penny, lead singer of the Dum Dum Girls, is no stranger to performing at giant summer musical events.

    Model articles of association for limited companies

    Contents

    Amendments to model articles

    The model articles were amended by the Mental Health (Discrimination) Act 2013 on 28 April 2013 to remove the provision for terminating a director’s appointment on grounds of mental health. This provision could be found in:

    • paragraph 18(e) of the model articles for private companies limited by shares or by guarantee
    • paragraph 22(e) of the model articles for public companies

    You don’t have to remove the provision if it’s in your articles, but you can do so by amending your articles or by adopting the newer model articles.

    Which versions apply

    The latest model articles apply by default to all private and public limited companies incorporated on or after 28 April 2013.

    The older model articles continue to apply by default to all companies incorporated between 1 October 2009 and 27 April 2013 (inclusive).

    Table A

    Table A is the name given to the prescribed format for articles of association of a company limited by shares under the Companies Act 1985 and earlier legislation.

    When a company limited by shares was incorporated, it didn’t need to file articles if it used ‘Table A’ as its articles. If you want to see the regulations that govern the management of the company, you’ll need to refer to the relevant ‘Table A’ – the version which was in force at the date of the company’s incorporation.

    Later versions of ‘Table A’ don’t affect a company registered before the new versions took effect.

    The first prescribed format, made in The Joint Stock Companies Act, 1856, were called ‘Table B’, because they were preceded by a form of Memorandum of Association called ‘Form A’.

    The articles were first called ‘Table A’ in The Companies Act 1862 and the naming convention continued for the acts which followed.

    List of Table A

    The following are versions of ‘Table A’ prescribed by:

    1. Mentally Strong People: The 13 Things They Avoid

    2. How to Turn Small Talk Into Smart Conversation

    In this TED Ideas post, Chris Colin and Rob Baedeker break down how to transform an ordinary conversation into an extraordinary one.

    3. Richard Branson to Young Entrepreneurs: ‘Just Do It’

    In an Inc. piece by Oscar Raymundo, famous entrepreneur Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin empire (Virgin Airlines, Virgin Mobile, etc.) explains why risk is an inherent aspect of entrepreneurship.

    4. Why Good Leaders Make You Feel Safe

    In this powerful TED Talk, Simon Sinek suggests that great leaders are those whom others feel they can trust–good leaders make people feel safe. Learn how to create a secure environment for your co-workers and employees while understanding that, while this undertaking is no easy task, the rewards and trust you’ll earn is invaluable. (A transcript is available too, so you don’t need to watch the video if you’d rather read.)

    5. The Top 5 Reasons Why ‘The Customer Is Always Right’ Is Wrong

    Alex Kjerulf of the Huffington Post explains why this classic maxim is a major mistake.

Instead, show employees the respect they deserve and they’ll return the favor with superior customers service and more company pride.

    6. Why You Hate Work

    This New York Times article by Tony Schwartz and Christine Porath explains the modern employee’s psychological needs and how they aren’t being fulfilled.

Some of the most successful entrepreneurs don’t even think about launching a startup until they are in their 30s, 40s, and even 50s, after gaining more work experience. This infographic from Entrepreneur shows successful individuals who took their own sweet time to find their calling. “Not all who wander are lost” indeed!

    James Altucher sees the writing on the wall–the middle class is vanishing and it’s time to take real control of your life.

    9. 6 Toxic Behaviors That Push People Away: How to Recognize Them in Yourself and Change Them

    13. How Things Change

    This succinct story by Tech Crunch’s Greg Kumparak is a just a few short lines and tweets. Telling the tale of Brian Acton’s personal experience (creator of WhatsApp), it sweetly and simply shows how when one door closes, another down the hall opens. And it opens into a swimming pool of Jello, talking zebras, and saxophone-playing dinosaurs. Or something close to that anyway.

    14. How Quitting My Corporate Job for My Startup Dream F*cked My Life Up

    In this story, Ali Mese reveals the unexpected difficulties that come with abandoning the corporate world for the startup dream. You may have planned on financial burdens, but have you considered the social distancing? The anxious parents? The frustrated fianc? Mese reminds us that entrepreneurship isn’t all sunshine and puppies–but is it worth it all in the end? I won’t spoil it.

    15. 7 Things Remarkable Happy People Do Often

    Inc. magazine’s very own Jeff Haden explains in this article why happiness is a choice, and how we can take small actions every day to make ourselves happier. It may not seem like rocket science, but it’s all too common for people to overlook the tools and techniques they can use to take joy in the world around them. Get started on these exercises and begin a better outlook.

    16. The Day I Stopped Saying ‘Hurry Up’
