Numbers Don't Lie - Watch How Many Minorities are Laid Off or Terminated From Positions as Compared to Others

It happens a company has to let go of jobs in order to save money, change current systems, relocate, and more.  However, when you begin to see a pattern at different places you have worked, your eyes aren't deceiving you!  Minorities, women, seniors, those with vested interest in the company, temps, and students are usually the first to be let go before others irregardless of those who perform good work performance and have exceptional attendance. You have to know it is systematic and also bias. Here are some links to articles that share some facts you might have overlooked or didn't think to consider.

Your Job Isn't Good Enough...Need More Money? 17 Ideas for People Who Need Cash

Well you don't have a lot of time to read and I don't have a lot of time to write, so here goes, a list to help you start thinking of ways you can make some cash soon!

1.  Weekends are a great time to make money so are you thinking about outdoor events?  Pass out fliers, offer car washing services, clean homes, organize garages, assist with existing projects...can you think of more?

2.  Build something.  It doesn't matter whether you make it with wood, stone, paper, fabric, or something else.  What can you create quickly and have it out on display at a fair, flea market/swap meet, or somewhere else?

3.  Use your front yard to sell items from closets, drawers, cabinets, etc. or skills (like car detailing).

4.  Use your driveway or the front of your home as a parking lot.  (This works if you are near large entertainment areas)  Charge by the hour.

5.  Offer to babysit or pet sit.

6.  Errand or taxi service.

7.  Sell some stocks.

8.  Ask someone to GIVE  money, not borrow (especially those people who have gotten much from you in the past).

9.  Host a party (charge per head).

10.  Offer companionship (we aren't talking about sex--get your mind out the gutter!)

11.  Sell meals.

12.  Create a crowdsource campaign for your cause (on and off the Internet).

13.  Visit the pawnshop.

14.  DJ a party.

15.  Take photos.

16.  Cater a party.

17.  Haul things for people.

You can think of more, now go make that money!

On Realizing the Importance of Promotional Materials

Logos, names, colors, symbols, and more on cups, mugs, calendars, t-shirts, and more.  These things reach further than our feet.  After walking through a print shop in Duarte CA, I realized just how significant promotional tools are to any business.

From a child's fund-raiser to a special event, something has to shout, "Welcome to our company." People need to feel like your business is in the moment, all-too-ready to serve them.  They need to know just how much your product or service might benefit them.

Staff wear t-shirts with your brand, a pen displays your logo, someone walks in with a bag with your company's name on it, someone else has a hat proudly boasting one's affiliation, and someone else posts a poster up on a wall not only in his or her atmosphere about your business, but a wall post too! The sky is the limit when it comes to promotional tools.

No matter where you are, near or far Curo, a managed print production company, is here to serve you!

Spring Cleaning Your Workplace

Old papers, folders that have never been used, bags of God knows what?, and more stuff in closets, drawers, filing cabinets, etc. than you can imagine.  Welcome to the cluttered workplace.  When will anyone step up to the plate and clean?

Make plans to get some things done today!  Too often employees show up for work and do their tasks, but don't bother to clean, pick up, organize or anything else, because "That's not my job."  Provide some incentives if it is within your control or use a day off and start purging.  Some companies will even sell some of their items, give them to charity, or host a giveaway.

Spring clean your way to a great looking, well-organized, and most of all good smelling workplace!
