Daniel Watson's curator insight, June 1, 2015 6:50 PM


Owning a business, puts one in a position where a multiplicity of roles needs to be accommodated, until such a time as the business is large enough and profitable enough, to employ qualified professionals in key areas. Often businesses fail because the business owners do not know, or do not understand, the key hats they must continually wear as they grow their businesses. This article identifies each of these key hats and then shares why each is critical to a business wanting to succeed.

Great article for family owned businesses, and the "seven habits" are a necessity to all business owners.

Jaymel Dash's curator insight, March 6, 2014 9:08 AM

This articles show ways to make you family owned business a successful one. In this case success is about learning.

J.J. Thomas's curator insight, July 31, 2014 7:24 PM

Family business has a completely different emotional dynamic that people often forget. Children and grandchildren can be used as leverage for getting your point across which is just bad business. The quote "the next generation stand on their shoulders, not in their shoes." is a great one!

LOW WAGES AT McDONALD'S, BURGER KING COST TAXPAYERS BILLIONS

New research shows more than half of low-wage workers at fast-food restaurants rely on public assistance to survive – a rate double that of the overall workforce. According to researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, low wages in the fast-food industry cost American taxpayers nearly $7 billion every year – that’s more than the entire annual budget of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A companion report by the National Employment Law Project found McDonald’s alone costs Americans $1.2 billion annually by paying its workers insufficient wages. Last year the top 10 largest fast-food companies alone made more than $7.4 billion in profits.http://www.democracynow.org/2013/10/18/super_sizing_welfare_costs_low_wages

Rishi Suresh's curator insight, December 11, 2014 11:32 AM

This is an interesting article connecting eating to drug use. The connection is quite obvious, as food also causes a dopamine release. It is an interesting comparison, because it implies that the majority of the Western world is suffering drug addiction to food.

Brushing and flossing isn'tthe only way of keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy. What you eat can have a major impact on your dental health too. There  are foods that can help promote healthy teeth and gums. Carrots and apples aren’t only loaded with antioxidants, they can help  mechanically clean your teeth. They can break up dental plaque sort of like a toothbrush does. Raisins can naturally kill any sugar craving. But they also contain  phytochemicals which can help kill off bacteria in the mouth.
