Entrepreneurship…LIKE A BOSS.

Location, Location, Location.

Not quite ready to branch out on your own yet when it comes to business? Still, it’s good to plan for the future. There are plenty of articles and lists discussing which cities are the best for entrepreneurs now, but what about in the future? Don’t worry, Forbes has you covered with this list of the best global cities for business in 2025.

When No News Isn’t Good News.

We’ve all been there: a time-sensitive issue comes up, you dutifully email your client and…nothing. The waiting game isn’t great for your nerves, especially when it comes to an unresponsive client. Trying to deal? This article has helpful tips to deal with client silence without sending a million follow-up emails.

Personality Problems(?)

If you look in some articles about things you should do to get ahead, you may find things like “be assertive!” or “be positive!” But what if you’re not an optimist or you’re shy? Don’t worry, there’s still a place for you in the business world! Inc outlines three personality traits with a bad rep that can actually help you in the workplace.

Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life

Travelling abroad but don’t want to pay for an expensive international plan? WhatsApp is the app to go for. This cross-platform messaging app lets you stay in touch with  iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and even Nokia users (apparently they’re still a thing?) without paying for text messages. You can also create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages. Muy bueno, no?
