Statistics are more available now to see the progress and success of new corporations and businesses. Unfortunately, they paint a picture of how steep the competition is within individual markets and how difficult it is to start a business or put together a corporation and keep it running. For instance:
- Only 44% of businesses survive their first five years.
- The average life cycle of new corporations is roughly 12 to 15 years.
Even CEOs last less than in the past, with an average stay of 5.5 years compared to over ten years in the 1990s. The fierce competition and demands in a digital and global age often make for volatility and turnover in companies.
With these numbers, it makes sense then to have a gift giving or celebration for employee milestones within companies. With most busi
Have much do you know about Martin Luther King Jr.?s life and impact on the Civil Rights movement? Long before Martin Luther King Jr. made his ?I Have a Dream? speech, he began his involvement with the Civil Rights movement in places like Alabama. From dedicating his time to sit-in movements, to spending time in jail standing up for what believed in, to speaking publicly about the rights everyone deserves, Martin Luther King Jr. led an inspirational life for all. By seeing the places he worked, reading his letters and listening to the MLK speech audio, we can still feel inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. today.

The famous Broadway creator of Hamilton Lin-Manuel Miranda released a video earlier this week that makes a strong statement about the state of U.S. immigration policy. Making the talk show rounds during the last two nights, Miranda has spoken passionately about how art can help share a message that might otherwise be too difficult and confusing to confront. Through art, Miranda and many other artists, can address the difficult topics in our world.
Art can also serve many other purposes as well. It can provide comfort, joy, relaxation, and hope. Addressing these needs is the work of art consulting firms. Coming into a hospital lobby or an office common space, an art consulting fir
Nowadays, it has become a common practice to be charged additional fees when buying tickets for music concerts, leisure activities or sports. But the good news is that you can avoid extra charges through wise booking which often require you to book in person and preferably in cash. However, in some venues, you’ll still have to incur debit or credit card service fee. Perhaps you are not off the hook just yet.
It has been established that the most typical way most ticket vendors generate money is through extra fees charged on tickets. Although ticket agents are known to impose service fees, other venues such as theaters or any other major event also add a fee, especially if you purchase sports tickets online. Furthermore, there are numerous ticket websites you can look up and get a
Everyone loves to dance. Even those who say that they don’t know how to dance, or that they simply “can’t.” Everyone can. All that dancing is, is the movement of your body to the sound of music, and to the beat that pulses throughout your body when that perfect song comes on.

While photography may not be an up and coming field, it?s certainly a classic one that continues to employ over 40 million people in the U.S alone. The average income for photographers is around $18 per hour, with the middle 70 percent earning between $20 -$60 thousand dollars annually.

Some people are extremely talented at taking a beautiful photograph and have a natural eye for what looks great; others are professionally taught and are knowledgeable about the components of a great photo. Some of these folks do it for a living; some work for a profes

“So you want to be a rock ‘n’ roll star?” sang The Byrds in 1967. “Then listen now to what I say. Just get an electric guitar and take some time and learn how to play.” Easy enough, right?

That’s why there are currently over eight million bands on MySpace all with recorded demos streaming on their pages for free. They’re waiting for the right talent scout to click their profile, waiting for a record contract, waiting for that big break.
