Origin of ‘Always Be Closing’
Children and successful business men have more in common than you may think. One of the first few things they learn in their formative years of life as a child or a businessman are their ABCs. "A-B-C. A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing. Always be closing, always be closing." These words, spoken by the character played by Alec Baldwin in the 1992 film Glengarry Glen Ross, based off of the play of the same name written by David Mamet, was hardly a new idea when it was quoted in the movie. Always Be Closing is a mantra that is commonly used to teach those who are new to sales. But the repetition of this ideal doesn't stop at the learning process. Always Be Closing is a business rule that is used over and over for the duration of a salesman's career. The phrase has been used for decades when instructing salespeople to build careers and maintaining a goal when in a business setting and is one of many terms in the business lingo.

Often, career lessons touch other areas of your life, including family, friends and relationships.

Most Hilarious Corporate Logo Fails
Having a logo without an edge is corporate suicide. What role do logos play in branding strategies? One of the most important marketing tools any company can have for themselves is a good logo design. It not only provides an easy to recognize identity for the business, but also communicates the essence of the firm. Companies spend millions of dollars trying to come up with that perfect logo, hiring the best creative thinkers they can find to brainstorm logo ideas, break it apart, change it up, and sometimes throw it away altogether until they get the absolute perfect logo.
