8/4 BLOG Earning immediate income

Earnings are the profit that a company produces in a specific period, usually defined as a quarter or a year. After the end of each quarter, analysts wait for the earnings of the companies they follow to be released. Earnings are studied because they represent a direct link to company performance. Income refers to money a person or business entity receives to provide a service or when making an investment. Passive income and residual income are two categories of income. Although these terms are often used interchangeably, they are fundamentally different. While residual income may be passive, passive income isn't always residual. Passive income is money earned from an enterprise with little or no ongoing effort. Residual income is not exactly a type of income but a calculation determining how much discretionary money an individual or entity can spend after paying their bills and meeting their financial obligations.

A project manager is accountable for planning and allocating resources, preparing budgets, monitoring progress, and keeping stakeholders informed throughout the project lifecycle. All of this takes place within the framework of achieving a company's goals and achieving their vision. Every project starts as an idea. It’s a project manager’s job to work with internal stakeholders and external clients to define that concept and create a process to bring it to fruition. This includes setting and managing client expectations, developing a detailed project plan, defining the scope of the project and assigning team members to specific tasks. Organization and follow-through are a big part of a project manager’s job. From creating an accurate timeline of project completion to ensuring tasks are finished within the confines of the assignment, the project manager must remain aware of how the project is progressing. After a project is finished, the project manager is responsible for evaluating its efficiency and effectiveness. With the data they’ve tracked throughout the process, they can begin to identify shortcomings and plan for ways to fix similar issues in the future. This is also an opportunity to highlight what went right, including building camaraderie and rewarding team members who excelled during the project.

7/28 blog sell art online

To start you’ll need to decide exactly what to sell and how to sell it. This is because there are a number of ways to sell art online, and knowing what you’re going to sell and the medium in which you’ll sell it is an important step in the process.

Not only can you sell your original artwork, which is rarer and therefore typically involves a higher price point, but you can also sell digital files or prints of your work to further leverage your time and make money over and over with one piece. Additionally, you can also make money selling other people’s artwork online if you build a network of artists and a website to sell their art.

If you’re a painter or work with charcoal or other specialized materials, you could sell original artwork. This would be an exciting item for anyone to buy because people love to have bespoke artwork to decorate their spaces. You might want to price these items higher because they are individually created.

7/20 blog web development

Web development is closely related to the job of designing the features and functionality of websites and apps (often called “web design”), but the “web development” term is usually reserved for the actual construction and programming of websites and apps.Web development is closely related to the job of designing the features and functionality of apps (web design). The term development is usually reserved for the actual construction of these things (that is to say, the programming of sites).

The basic tools involved in web development are programming languages called HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and JavaScript. There are, however, a number of other programs used to “manage” or facilitate the construction of sites that would otherwise have to be done “from scratch” by writing code. A number of content management systems (CMS) fall into this category, including WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, TYPO3, and Adobe Experience Manager, among others.

7/18, 7/19 blog interview someone

Knowing how to interview someone for a job—whether in person, by phone, or via video will help you discern whether an applicant is a good fit for your open positions. It is a fairly straightforward process that involves gathering the needed documentation, scheduling the interview and sharing information with the candidate, conducting the interview, and then evaluating and following up with the candidate.

Once you are sure that you want to interview an applicant for a job, you’ll start gathering all the information needed to conduct the interview. That may include a job description, a copy of the candidate’s employment application, and a resume. It might also include a copy of the job ad you posted and perhaps even an organizational chart to see where the job fits within your organization.

Every interaction you have with a job applicant reflects your company brand, and therefore, it’s crucial to follow up with job seekers. The more personalized your response, the better. For example, if the rejected candidate is your second choice and your first choice had significantly more accounting experience, it’s OK to express that you liked them but chose the more experienced person. It’s helpful to explain what you liked best about the candidate’s skills and experience—and then, wish them well in their job hunt. It may not start as a letter at all—it may be a phone call or a text you send to offer the candidate the job.
