The importance of relationships for individuals and their businesses

We often overlook the people closest to us By:​ Christopher Claxton As humans, we are social creatures, our relationships power our mental, emotional and physical health. Our personal well-being goes hand-in-hand with our personal relationships, they fuel each other in a sense. The closer we feel to the people in our lives the happier we are.

We Live In A Corporate Socialist Society

The Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Poorer By: Sammy Quarrato The American Dream to many Americans is an illusion and something that at one point used to be the reality. The United States is said to be the ‘land of opportunity’ and a place where you ‘get what you give’; but, the reality is far from it. According to EPI (Economic Policy Institute), “From 1973 to 2013, hourly compensation of a typical (production/nonsupervisory) worker rose just 9 percent while productivity increased 74 percent— this means that workers have been producing far more than they receive in their paychecks and benefit packages from their employers”. ...
