The budget myth that just won’t die: Americans still think 28 percent of the budget goes to foreign aid

The budget myth that just won’t die: Americans still think 28 percent of the budget goes to foreign aid | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it
It's not!
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

The public still thinks that 28% of the budget goes to foreign aid. THis erroneous belief is the reason most (61%) Americans say we spend too much for foreign aid.  When told that only 1% of the budget goes to foreign aid, the number of persons who think that "too much" goes to foreign aid drops by more than half to 30%.

 

Additionally, when told that 1% of the budget goes to foreign aid, the 13% of the population who thought that this amount was "too little," more than doubled to 28%. Those who say the amount was "about right" increased from 18% to 31%.

Greg Lustig's curator insight, October 23, 2013 10:05 AM

There is an old adage,there is no I in team.Unforunately, far too many business owners do not follow that axiom and  run their businesses as despot rulers.Not only ,does this create a negative culture ,it wastes the talents of its employees.

John Bean's curator insight, October 23, 2013 12:12 PM

Dan Watson and the article / author are right on - teamwork is a critical ingredient to any business' success.  The 6 team mate type discussion is definitely something to consider. 

 

In essence - this also speaks to the power of true Diversity and Inclusion.  D&I is more of a business imperitive than a social cause - as to ignore D & I is to pay lip service to "team work", and "leaves money on the table".  The article through the 6 team mate types speaks to valuing diversity of opinion, style, and background; and inclusion as valuable to a highly performing team.

Vincent Picton's curator insight, August 18, 10:07 AM

I do not necessarily agree with this saying, but I feel that teamwork may lead to success faster.

 

It is true that one person may not be able to complete the jobs that five people could due to lack of skills, but if that person was very skilled they may be able to complete the task, it would just take them longer.

 

This is how I felt sitting with the client in the waiting room.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it

Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

Karen Ford's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:53 PM

I think "death by PowerPoint" is used so often because so many users have not "taken the pains to make a memorable..." presentation and the concept of creativity might not have even been considered. Not totally sure what the answer is, but I do believe that if more individuals could have their eyes opened to the potential that PowerPoint has, we might be able to get passed the "death" issue. That means we have to get the great ideas to the teachers and  their students... not just telling them, but perhaps showing them...

What Can We Expect From The Next Decade Of Marketing?

What Can We Expect From The Next Decade Of Marketing? | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it

While most of the impact of technology on marketing has been tactical so far, over the next decade or so there will be a major strategic transformation.

 

Today, however, digital technology has enabled us to retarget consumers when they respond to a message and that has changed marketing forever. In effect, we must make the shift from grabbing attention to holding attention.

 

That means that brands will have to learn to be more like publishers and develop content skills. It also means that marketers will have to create a genuine value exchange rather than just coming up with catchy ad slogans and price promotions. Like it or not, we’ve entered a post-promotional paradigm....

How Small Business Leaders Can Build Resilience

How Small Business Leaders Can Build Resilience | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it

Tiffany Crosby's curator insight, October 23, 2013 2:26 PM

How resilient are you? Being a small business owner is hard but rewarding work. With the right attitude and proper support structure, you can make a go at it. 

Lorinda Forrest's curator insight, October 24, 2013 8:36 AM

Tough times teach resiliance and sometimes asking for help enables you to see your situation more objectively.

Ciara Turner's curator insight, October 24, 2013 12:29 PM

 

Small business owners will always feel like they have a lot to prove as well a lot to lose. Especially, for the majority of the business owners that life has been devoted to keeping their business afloat. They have invested too much of their time money and effort into their business. According to the article it stress that a business owner MUST have resilience as a leader. They must be able to take on any obstacle that comes their way.

 

With the understanding that they still-fragile economic recovery, the difficulties small businesses face securing funding, and the importance of finding and retaining the right employees, places enormous stress on leaders today. Which is understandable however the business world does not wait on anyone? The competitors feast off of those that show weakness. By developing a true resilient mindset, small business owners can continue growing their business regardless of the obstacles around them.

 

In the article it gave a couple of tips on how to improve business owner’s resilience mindsets. It was four steps; don’t go it alone, accept people help, keep your eye on the goal, maintain a positive outlook.

 

Reach out to other trusted business owner or consultants for ideas and support. Small Business owners need to realize they are not in it alone. Once you have reached out the next step will accept the help that is being offered. It is not a sign of weakness. Business owners should keep their eye and mind on why they started this company to reinsurance themselves when time gets hard. Which can help them keep a positive outlook on any situation that comes up to sufface.  

 

With that being said I think that smaller business should engaged more into the Chapter 9 topic business to business relations. Which chapter touches on a couple key points for this particular article the fact of building and maintaining a relationship with other local businesses. On page 194 in the chapter someone suggested and I quote , " one-one-one discussions, partner advisory councils, surveys, and collaboration. the idea is to understand their issues and help partners grow."   Having an understanding that it is a competition however what a competition is if you have no one to compete with.

 

From a PR stand point I think that having that open minded mind set and such with only help you and your community thrive for better prosperity.
