    Top 9 Online Logo Generators

    As technology advances, a logo has certainly become one of the most vital elements of the visual recognition of your brand or business. This the main reason why people think seriously about having a logo when it comes to starting their business. Because a logo is a perfect way to increase your brand awareness and when you have your final logo, it is printed on stationery, on a vehicle like the truck and many more to promote business. That means a logo can signal-handedly work like a marketer for your brand and turns about to be the main identity of your business.

    Cover Letter Writing for Non-Native English Speakers

    Cover Letter Writing for Non-Native English Speakers

    What is a cover letter? Why is it important for an English learner to know about it and also how to create a good one? Well, a good cover letter can make the difference between landing that dream job or hitting refresh on the search results again to find the next job opportunity. Your experience and your professional background need to be succinct and summed up in a well-written way and the cover letter is your best way of doing that. It is an excellent way in which for you to improve your English writing skills and to prove that you can handle your future job’s writing components which there is likely to be many of them since you are a worker during an age of e-mails, 24 hour communications, and instant messaging services.

    The Hiring Bias Against Stay-At-Home Parents & How to Fix It

    When parents decide to re-join the workforce after a temporary leave of absence to raise children the odds of getting hired are not in their favor. Here are the facts based on research by Kate Weisshaar: 1. Employers were more likely to hire laid-off applicants over applicants who stayed home with children temporarily. 2. Stay-at-home parents were about half as likely to get a callback as unemployed parents. 3. Stay-at-home parents were only one-third as likely to get a callback as employed parents.

    A Writer’s Vulnerability

    It’s strange that there are so many people out there who offer tips and tutorials about writing, myself included, and often forget that writing is an art and art is the language of the soul. Since no soul is perfect, there is a perseveration in the writing community over great writing techniques and all we wish to do is take that to heart and sharpen our craft, but I want to propose, or rather remind those who may have forgotten, that we never ignore our imperfections and remember that they are the guiding force to our artistic spirit. A writer’s vulnerability builds a successful career with ease.

    I've Been Running My Music & Art Career Completely From My Bedroom For 5+ Years & Here's How

    I feel like many aspiring artist overthink a lot when chasing the dream. It needs to stop. Professional studios and art spaces are really dope & I dream of having one to myself some day. But for now, my room IS my recording and art studio, I made it work for me. I like to imagine that I'm like Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory and my bedroom is my laboratory filled with everything I need to create and take over the world. Having that mindset keeps me motivated to create at home where I'm comfortable. Should you get out and experience professional studios when given the chance/opportunity? Absolutely. Should that be the requirement for your hustle, your creativity, and self growth? I don't believe so. If you don't have the money or opportunity to work in a professional studio, look around you make your environment work for what you need done until opportunity presents itself.

This shit isn't easy and I doubt it's going to get any easier. Writers are forced to somehow create a reputable career online and somehow get slightly famous before signing with a publisher who will change your work to possibly something you don't agree with. So what about the in-between? How do go between being no one and someone within the world of writing? Are publishers really going to sign on a new writer with no reputation whatsoever? Of course not.

    Millennials and the Sharing Economy

    Millennials and the Sharing Economy

    Sharing your life with strangers is an important part of building the economy. The sharing economy involves freelance work often facilitated by a larger company that can choose who works for them, and sometimes supervises transactions between customers and workers. Companies such as Uber, Lyft, and Airbnb, which encourage the social economy, have become very popular recently. With the rise of the internet, and advancements in app development, the ability to do freelance work is at an all-time high. The sharing economy comes more naturally to younger generations, because of the fact that they have grown up always having the internet. It is also a point in time for generations, typically Millennials, and the earlier members of Generation Z, that they may not be completely settled into the job they ideally want, and they probably do not have complete financial stability, so being able to easily make money while working another job, or studying in college is appealing to them. When thinking about anything, you should always consider both the benefits, and the detriments, especially when it comes to the economy. The most prominent argument people have against the sharing economy is that it is taking us away from more traditional businesses, however, there is always going to be a demand for both. I strongly believe that the sharing economy is improving the economy as a whole.

Now, you can order pizza, a ride, transfer money, conduct video conferences with friends, and much more, all with a few swipes of a finger on a smartphone or other device. But what has not been spoken of or written about as much are the sites that paid for content. User or contributor or partner generated content has been the little secret that no one discusses about the internet. It is a conundrum wrapped in a riddled sprinkled with mystery to most folks. While gaming apps reap in billions of dollars for their makers, the sites that pay (or paid) for material have been relegated to the corner of the digital space. Names that when you speak of them to the layperson, usually draw faces of confusion or even wonder. Few news outlets have spoken of these now deceased sites and the people who possessed the opportunity to spread the message of the goodness of these sites didn’t have too much time as they changed business models, saw absorption into other companies, or found themselves rendered obsolete altogether. But the men and women who saw something curious in the universe said: this internet thing is a huge bank for the yacht-sized companies that have docked here. Why can’t people with a passion for writing or video be compensated for their efforts in these speedboats?

    Improve a Business and Help the Planet

    Most business owners care about the environment that their business and they themselves exist in. While this is often the case, it is also true that many business owners do not see many ways in which they can use their business to help their environment. As climate change continues to cause damage both physically and economically, it is becoming more important than ever to find ways that businesses and individuals can help cut down on waste, emissions and pollution. While there are many different ways that someone can begin to help the environment, many people do not know where to start. This is often due to people assuming that to truly help the environment they must take significant and immediate action that drastically affects their lives or businesses. While this is usually the assumption, the reality is that small changes make significant impacts, especially when many individuals and businesses implement those changes.

There has been so much mystique and misunderstanding around this character down through the years. It is a wonder and a testament that this singular figure holds such a revered and curious place in the fascination of so many thinking people of all cultural traditions to this day, regardless of whatever belief system to which one subscribes. The goal was to humanize this character; by positing the notion: what if he really existed; then envisioning, fleshing out how might his story have actually occurred.

That especially goes for your leadership and management friends at work. The morale of the story is that you need to be careful of who you befriend on facebook. Many supervisors have two facebook accounts, although that is not permitted, so that they can use one to spy on people at work and the other as their official facebook for friends and family.
