I have felt that the best course of action when deciding upon a career, or indeed a new career, is to go with something that you both love, and that you are good at. I cannot tell you how many friends went in to careers shortly after college because it seemed the easiest option or because they were chasing the money and they are now miserable in their jobs and dread Monday morning, something I could never do. As part of our focus on jobs which based on your skills, today we are going to take a look at what…

In recent times, the living standards of the working class have slipped significantly, as real wages have remained frozen since the 70s and costs in almost every area have ramped up considerably. The trend of outsourcing manufacturing and office jobs overseas has been a big driver in this trend, leaving labor markets in developed countries competing for an ever shrinking pool of decent jobs. What’s more, acquiring these positions almost always requires a post-secondary education, requiring the assumption of massive loans that are not dischargable via bankruptcy. This has had the effect of increasing economic desperation, civil unrest, drug addiction,…

Sports athletes like Jack Elway are great physical specimens who spend hours each day refining their physical skills to compete in their chosen sport. If you went into a locker room of a professional football team and look at all of the players it would be difficult based on physical attributes to tell who are the standouts or stars of the team because their physical appearances would be similar. If you also read their statistics about strength and speed, and their on-paper measurements you would still not know who the stars are. It would only become obvious when you saw…

I have loved Disney movies for as long as I can remember and even when I entered my adulthood, I still enjoyed them just as much as I did when I was a kid. For that reason, it had always been my dream to head down to Florida and go to the Magic Kingdom theme park in Kissimmee. For one reason or another, it just never happened, that was until last year when I was hooked up with friend Charles Bishop Pompano Beach Florida native who took me in to the park and showed me just how amazing it really…

Crunch! Car accidents can happen so fast! Someone on a cell phone decides to make a sudden lane change without checking their blind spot and sideswipes you. Some guy late for work blows through a red light and t-bones you. A selfish drunk decides to drive home instead of calling a cab, drifts over the center line, and crashes into you at 45 miles per hour (thank God for airbags and seat belts!). While you might want to phone a good Salt Lake car accident lawyer as soon as possible, there are a number of actions you should take care…

People always say that the safest investments is in bricks and mortar and I can testify to the fact that those people who say this are absolutely on the money. I have been investing for the last ten years and the first five of those were spent investing in oil futures as well as some stocks. After a relatively successful start to my investments, I bumped into Radha Singh Hazlet-based real estate guru and college buddy of mine who urged me to get involved in real estate investment. I took his advice and after just one year of the real…

I spend a great deal of my time attending various business seminars throughout the country and I must be honest, it can often be tough. Many of the speakers that are hired at these events offer the same, tired wisdom and similar speeches which are given through monotone voices. Every now and agin however, someone takes to the stage who instantly engages you and sparks a fire of inspiration inside you. The last time this happened to me was when some of the guys from financial services company Patriot Choice Inc. took to they stage to deliver a rousing speech.…

When I decorated my home last year I had a chance encounter which changed my complete outlook on home renovation. I bumped into an old school friend Steve Silvers who gave me some education on how to decide on flooring in my home. After discussing flooring with him, I decided to completely alter my plans and in fact, begin with which flooring I would start with. Flooring follows throughout your home and has a profound impact on how the home looks on the whole. If you are redecorating your home, or at least planning to do so, here is how…

Running a business is tougher than most people realize. Unless you’re in a fortunate minority, there’s no nine till five, even if that’s your office hours. Weekends probably don’t exist, either. You do it because it’s what you do, and you believe that hard work pays. And that’s great if you look after yourself the way you take care of your empire. But do you? How are you feeling today? When your body tells you it needs help Managing the daily grind is inherently stressful, an occupational hazard. Some people thrive in those situations, but in time, the majority start…
