It’s an amazing and daunting thing trying to figure out your life. I knew what I wanted to do, knew that I wanted to amount to something. I knew that really young…the trouble was that I didn’t know how I was going to do it. Shit, does anyone? I spent my entire late teens and the majority of my twenties working for a photography company, living off the road like a rock star (or a roadie, or a dirty corporate hippy, whichever), and making way too much money for doing almost nothing. Teenagers are the worst, their parents even more so. As an adult, I realized my generation was the last generation that really had a childhood. And a disciplined one at that.
Lead generation refers to the process of turning strangers into prospective business clients or customers. Leads are not necessarily ready to buy your product or service, but they are willing to pay attention to your business and look into the services you’re providing. Making this first step is the hardest part of a sale.
As a writer and a workaholic, I have a lot of beef with the people and organizations that offer fake job opportunities. The working world is filled with them — and many of them take advantage of people who are disenfranchised, new to the game, or just really in need of new work.
All across the globe, industries are pushing forward innovations that change the way we perceive common objects and services we had become accustomed to. The healthcare sector is no exception, as more and more healthcare startups are coming up with ideas that they can do better than the competition. If you are considering becoming a healthcare provider, this is the perfect time to do it. According to the Productivity Commission’s report on healthcare services, the total amount of Australian government, individuals and private insurance spent on healthcare grew from $4,788 per person in 2004/5 to $6,248 per person in 2014. However, as money brings more business opportunities, it also brings more competitors. These things are something you should know if you want to bypass some commonplace obstacles.
Managers are, in fact, leaders and should focus first on leading their crew and staff before managing their business. As a former US Army JROTC cadet, I was taught how to lead and how to optimize the resource of manpower. Of course, in my current career of business management, managers often forget to lead their staff and instead focus on the business aspects; profits, marketing, and inventory management.
