Business Ethics and Who’s Concerned

Whatever happened to proper business practices? It appears as if even the large businesses and corporations aren’t engaging in ethical practices anymore. When conducting business there should be seriousness. It appears as though many businesses are now engaging in bullying which should never occur. When businesses take such “a route” they’re placing their business at risk. Some will lose their business because of using unethical practices. There’s some businesses which treat their customers unfairly.

Successful businesses will treat customers with dignity such as Amazon (CEO Jeff Bezos). Perhaps that’s how his company incurred billions. Mr. Bezos is a Billionaire. Net worth

Companies, Businesses, and Corporations as well as Organizations should try to be friendly with potential customers, consumers, and prospects. Not too many are these days. There are some who seem to not be concerned with growing at all. If they’re not treating their customers right then the business will surely fail. There will be a lot of complaints to the BBB and other complaints may be supplied. Some stopped using ethical practices for whatever reasons.
Perhaps some aren’t considering the ramifications of not using proper business practices. Not thinking long term and some “advertisers” could stop or not consider doing any business with the businesses which offer no ethical practices. Their ratings could decline as well as sales. The ones who are in tuned with treating their customers properly will probably end up being some of the most successful businesses. Some businesses owners may end up suffering a decline because of their desire to be overly competitive.
“The competition can cause some business owners to behave abnormally.” Some will continue to do so until they’ve suffered many lawsuits. Not all businesses will continue to rise because of the methods and practices used. The business owners aren’t considering how to increase their sales and to provide better products and services. Some will end up losing their business because of the treatment given to most of their customers.
Some may need to take sensitivity courses or perhaps stop doing business. No customer should be treated unfairly. “Any business who is unwilling to offer customer satisfaction shouldn’t be in business.” There are some previously used proper practices but stopped doing so. The decision to stop the practices is a mistake. Customers are the ones who keep the businesses open and people continue to help businesses thrive. Unfortunate for so many businesses.

Disagreements but Many Achievements Despite the Conditions

There will certainly be adversity some may face extreme adversities. Some not knowing when all of the trouble will let up. Eventually there will be some “solutions” and although it may appear as if the troubles will last always. no trouble will last always. Some may not agree with what is and will continue to take place. There is a battle and for some trying to get through the storms is extremely difficult. Life is difficult, it was promised that we’ll all go through troubles, there’s so many ways to deal with the storms.

The key is to never consider giving up. No matter how many appear to be against another. There will always be support and in some cases there will be a supportive team. There may be a lot against a person but through determination there will be victory. “There will be new discoveries.” The challenges could be set forth because of  strength building. No matter what’s done there will always be some who are in disagreement. In order to achieve more through the adversities at hand. There will be some time to gather thoughts.

It can be difficult having to deal with a lot of disagreeable people but there are ways to manage. There are ways to incur achievements although at times doing so could be difficult. It can also be difficult to have sound discussions when some are unwilling to accept or understand what’s taking place. “Communication” is still important however there may be times when silence needs to occur when the disagreeable people are out of control.

For so many they’ve given up because they’ve felt as if there was no headway. There shouldn’t be any ceasing going on. There is a possibility of incurring many :achievements through patience” and finding effective solutions. Of course having to deal with a lot of chaos can be quite unsettling and if the focus is on the chaotic environment then little achieving will take place. There’s a lot to be discovered and so many have simply given up on trying to discover what can create a more stable society.

No matter what’s done or said there will always be some who refuse to agree for whatever reasons. Some may become difficulty because they’re not wanting to accept that certain “avenues” are to be followed. For some it’s a matter of wanting to control others and that’s why so many disagreements may occur. There’s a lot instability and in order to create a more functional society there will need to be more individuals willing to make the necessary changes in order to do so. There will be some who may disagree at first but will agree once there is more understanding.

A person should continue with advancement even when difficulties arise. There should be times when there is complete thoughts occurring. The removals of all negatives and “thoughts” of producing greater. Too many are caught up with not wanting to be wrong and go against the very ones who can assist with building. There can be achievements through others. There is growth when growth is allowed. To disagree is something which will occur but to not even try to understand can cause a decrease.

There’s Something About the Competition huh?

Competitors are always looking to compete with their competition. Some may go overboard while trying to do so. some competitors may become extremely mad when not accomplishing what they’ve hoped. There are some competitors who will try to harm their competition and that’s why “it’s important” that there is alertness. It’s not fair of course the way a lot of people try to cause so much havoc for the ones who are trying to advance. Competition is all over. There are some who are very competitive. There are some who really should seek professional help because of their competitiveness.

Having to compete with persons can be quite irritating and especially if there’s a lot to compete with. There are some who will behave insanely if they’re having to compete with tough competition. Some will use extreme measures in order to knock their competition out of the race. There are some who may become embarrassed because of the competition doing so well. For the ones who are use to “staying ahead”and having to fall back some there may be some anger.

Not all persons are overly competitive. There are some who continue on without even “noticing’ all of the competition. A little competition is fine and dandy but too much competition is very unhealthy. Some can even drive themselves insane because they’re refusing to back away from the competitiveness. Of course persons don’t want to lose but there as to be a time when individuals stop so they’re able to keep their insanity. There are so many who really do not like to compete and they’ll become extremely violent when having to do so.

It is better to keep sane and live productively so that losing the mind is avoided. There are some not even focused on their own advancement. There’s a lot focused on what others are doing and doing so could cause the individuals to not progress further. Competing can be quite dangerous. Some are willing to lose their freedom because of competitiveness. There are some willing to take away a person’s dreams because of their thoughts of the individuals not deserving to have the dreams. Some competitors are quite evil.

There are some who have claimed to need professional help because of their overly competitiveness. Not wanting to stop competing. Some will lose their train of though because they’re so in tuned with trying to stop their competition. Spending their time trying to come up against their competition. Some will constantly follow their competition to see what moves they’re making. For some it’s to stop “the progress” and others are just needing to know.

It’s pretty disturbing when so many refuse to just live productive lives and do what’s necessary to achieve. Trying to pull others down in order to stay on top isn’t the answer. There are some who will invade in a person’s affairs in order to stop any prosperity. Not even considering how they’re actions can backfire. There are some extremely toxic competitors out there and it’s best” to stay away from such individuals. Some may even try to take claim of a business or work in which they know they haven’t discovered.

Don’t be Surprised as to who Receives Abundance

There are some people who are in situations where individuals are constantly taking advantage. Some lurking about to try and gain and some waiting to see what it is they’re able to take. Trying to subtract instead of adding. That’s why God may delay blessings. Really doesn’t make sense for a person to have and as soon as the blessings are gained the blessings are taken away by greedy individuals. There are some who “should have” received their abundance long ago but due to the circumstances the abundance was withheld.

Some may wonder why they’re not receiving when they’ve been through so much. God looks out and does not want His children to go without. although there are poor individuals, due to some not taking the right path, or other reasons they’re poor. God wants prosperity to occur. He does not want any person to be poor. There are riches “awaiting” for some but until the removals occur. The riches may not be administered.

There are some people who add no value to a person’s life. Meaning they’re causing more harm than good. There are some women who can do without their husbands. The husband may hinder growth and that’s why some wives aren’t prospering the way that they’re suppose to. Husbands who block the blessings aren’t good. The abundance can occur when there is changes and movement. Staying in the same place can actually cause a decrease instead of an increase. Some may need to divorce in order to receive their “abundance.”

Of course God doesn’t like divorce but if there is abuse, danger, or adultery then divorce occur. Some may choose to separate but any person who has experienced loss due to a spouse such as money loss shouldn’t continue to stay in a broken marriage. Abundance can not occur if there is persons around trying to steal, take away, and gain what is given to the person. A blessing to one doesn’t mean “entitlement.”

Some may wonder why their breakthrough hasn’t occurred yet. If God isn’t pleased with a situation then He’ll put away the blessings until the situation is rectified. Too many end up losing out on their blessings because of staying in areas too long. There is greater meant for God’s Children People but until the persons are willing to make the necessary changes. The breakthroughs will not occur. There has to be a “decision to move.”

There can be “further growth” when individuals decide to live bleak situations. Some may remain due being afraid of change, the unknown, or some for financial reasons. No person deserves to be treated unfairly and if abundance is suppose to occur then removals need to occur as well. Yes, some will have to leave behind even their mother, or children in order to incur better for the family.

Abundance can take some time. Some should have received their abundance but their situation may have lead to the delay. Once there is movement then God will prepare the administering. Until “the rewards” are received there should be continuous praises. Not all will because some may not believe in giving God the Creator of Mankind praise. He’s the one who makes sure the abundance is received. Some may try to hinder the abundance because of not wanting certain individuals to receive the abundance. Some may try to stand in the way because they’re trying to gain. Know who’s who.

Proceed and Keep the Confidence

It may be difficult to understand why so many may want to stop what can help a lot of people. Growing the economy is very important and individuals should want to see others “excel.” The doors that are opened for some are ways to open more doors for others perhaps some aren’t considering this when trying to disconnect others from business ventures and other means that can help incur a more stable economy. No matter how many are trying to create a disconnection the persons who are on the venture, journey, who are living their purpose should continue and although doing so can be quite difficult at times. There shouldn’t be any doubt whether to proceed or not.

There will be some who will try to intimidate others so that they’ll simply give up. Not wanting some to shine could be the reason. For some it’s the competition. Wanting to be the center of the shine at all times so therefore they’re trying to find ways to slow the process down or to stop what’s taking place altogether. The key is to remain confident and do whatever needs to be done to make sure there’s progress. The resistance is why so many choose to not live a dream or to allow their vision “to prosper. ”

If there’s determination then there will be progress. The interruptions will arise but it’s up the persons who are on the journey whether they’re willing to allow others to stop the flow. There should be success and every person has a right to go after the success, to produce success, and to live successfully. Some may not start early an outstanding finish. The ones who are shining the most will receive the most resistance. Some fear seeing others get ahead. No matter what others are feeling about the progress. There should be “continuous progress.”

Everyday “there’s an opportunity to grow” in someway as long as we’re here. No matter how angry the crowd becomes there shouldn’t be any reason to stop. If there’s setbacks, there should be ways in place to rise up again, no stopping. Getting to the finish line is very important. Although there may be a setback or two. The setbacks do not equal failure. No matter what others may say. Do not believe in failure. Believe in being productive and progressing further.

Rise above the criticism. The critics will surely have their say and some want to see a cease in the movement. There are some who will give constructive criticism and some who simply are hating. Not all want to see a decline. Some actually want to see others rise up in order to assist some who are having difficulties doing so. Certainly can use more successful people in the world. The ones who believe in “stronger economies” and who believe in not only themselves but others as well.

Being confident is extremely important. Let no person take away the confidence. Yes, there are some who will be extremely cruel, but “understand” they’re dealing with issues that have nothing to do with the persons who are trying to rise up. Every group should want to see their people do better and become more successful. There should be some helping going on but never become overworked or consumed with the stress in which so many may try to produce because of needs or desires.

Be focused on getting from one point to another. Making a positive difference can help so many. No person should be expected to help every person. Not possible to do so. Helping some is good and continuing to do more is a plus. Eventually where a person truly wants to go will occur if they’re determined enough. There can be progress in any day. There has to be “confidence” and beliefs that one is deserving to incur their desired success level.

Some may start to believe what the critics are saying. There should be encouragement and a lot of times we’re having to encourage ourselves. Do not become dismayed by what so many will have to say. Some will be challenging to see if a person is really “determined” and really want to make it to the top. If a person is really desiring to grow then they’ll do what needs to be done to do so. No matter how many times some may try to stop the dream of vision. They’ll rise above the madness.

Keep believing and remain hopeful. The doubters will doubt what is taking place because so many have to see the end result. It’s hard for some to imagine a dream when the dream isn’t complete. Visionaries should remain encouraged and when a setback occurs “continue on.” There are so many ways to bounce back. Fight for the vision do not allow any person to stop the vision from occurring. There’s a lot to go through but in time all will come together.

How to make a career in music?

Just as art decorates space, music decorates time. Entering the arena of the music industry not only requires talent but also a creative bend of mind. If you wish to choose a career in music you should be greatly inclined towards your love for this beautiful art. A profession in music not only circumscribes singing and composing, there are variant career opportunities for you to showcase your talent.

The first step towards a successful career in music is to stay dedicated and loyal towards your passion. Since a career in music is an unconventional one, only your spirit and determination will take you to the zenith.

Here are a few professions that can help you convert your love for music into your line of work:

“·Sound Recording/Mixing- Music can be amalgamated with technology! Sound recorders and engineers are greatly in demand in the multimedia industry. For all multimedia projects a technical music team is a must. Technicians do a great amount of work behind the scenes which requires sound modulation, removal of noise and modification of notes. Sound engineers are significantly needed these days.

“·Disc Jockey- Being a DJ is a versatile and energetic job! You can make your own mixes and earn handsomely with your talent. Your musical knowledge and ingenuity can take you a long way.
Disc Jockeys are the most eccentric and celebrated music artists who earn from their own talent and musical creativity. With the increasing party culture and music festivals, there is ample scope for the art of Jockeying.

How to improve your soft skills to get hired quickly

Soft skills have become an absolutely vital criteria for job descriptions, coming just after the technological qualifications. Your communication skills, qualities of collaboration and adaptability are greatly emphasised upon while conducting a job interview. Although soft skills are quite innate in your behaviour and come from the environment you belong to, yet there are ways to hone them further. You don’t have to be brilliant or ‘over-the-top’ pleasing so as to end up looking bogus. The best you can do is to analyse yourself at the ground-zero level of your personality and weigh the good ones against the unsatisfactory qualities of yours.

The good news, however, is that soft skills can be greatly improved and learned from others. Enhancing your soft skills will not only give you an upper hand over the others in the race but will also make you feel confident from within. Both professional and personal soft skills are equally significant while you get yourself ready to set your feet into the job arena. You can get hired quickly and end up bagging a better job or a promotion if your soft skills are finely brushed up.

Here are some ways to improve your soft skills so that you end up getting hired quickly:

“·Pursue a course– Take up a short course based on public speaking, formal ways of interaction or writing. Once you’ll get in touch with the essence of communicating and interacting effectively, your soft skills will be greatly enhanced. Try to boost your communicating power by getting your hands on some creative verbal and interactive exercises. In the professional world, communication holds the key to every lock that stands in your way. A number of people are quite good at technical work but lag behind in the field of expressing themselves. Try to be a good listener and an equally good speaker.

“·Consult a Mentor– If you are lucky enough to hire or convince someone to be a mentor for you that will be the best way to polish your soft skills. When you have a real-life person teaching you with live examples, the learning process becomes fun and very impressive. You should properly explain to your mentor the areas that are your target skills so that he can lend you a torch to look watchfully in that area. A good mentor-learner relationship will give you a good chance to improve your soft skills.

“·Take up voluntary activities– Get a little outside the comfort zone and volunteer! Once you dive in into something on your own, the level of responsibility and dedication automatically goes up. Once you start volunteering for activities you’ll have a plenty of chances to interact with people and to sharpen the sociological and psychological ends of your personality. Volunteering also leaves a very good impression about the kind of person you are, as any institution would want to have people who are willing to take up responsibilities on their own.

Providing Benefits, Welfare And Amelioration To Workers

Imagine the garbage collector without hazard pay or a construction worker at risk of falling from the high rise building, a driver driving the passenger bus for more than 10 hours per day and enduring the everyday noise of very loud horns from different types of vehicles, a power line worker who posed the danger being electrocuted just to ensure electricity in the city.

Then imagine these workers and other workers like fishermen, heavy equipment operator, timber cutter, nurse and among others without the safety, benefits, compensation and protection from their own employers.

The skilled and blue collar jobs may have the dirtiest, heaviest and hardest kind of job all over the land but unlike the white collar job and the office related jobs which are working in the more comfortable, lighter and simpler assignments usually in the fully air-conditioned room. But when it regards to the benefits, compensation and ameliorations for them, those who work outside the office and building are receiving lesser in terms of money and benefits and they are left behind..

But this could change now with a bill being passed in the congress known as occupational safety and health standards for workers or the Senate Bill 1317 who is looking for the administrative and criminal liabilities of the employers of not complying the OSH.

No one can think the agony and hardship when a driver met an accident that caused him to sidelined from work because of heavy injuries and then you found out you have no social security contributions, no hazard pay, health insurance and many more. How about the mechanic who have the dirtiest job? Or the building cleaner fall in the high rise building.

The occupational standardization should have been felt by every worker. The benefits and all other amelioration of workers should be given to them. When accidents or bad incidents happened to them at least there is security that they can rely on. Something that will help them in medical problems and even in supporting their families when uncertainties come to their job.###
