1. The past three years, as of the time of this writing, has seen many headlines in the news where business ethics were obviously lacking. But that is nothing new and maybe it just appears like it is more rampant. Throughout history, this topic has been the subject of many businesses that have acted unscrupulously. It is all about a personal choice, and the direction that a business chooses to go in. When it comes to good business ethics, larger companies, and smaller companies, are very different in several ways. Larger corporations have much more pressure than smaller businesses, for example. It simply comes down to making a choice and sticking with the decision you have made.
    There are many negative consequences to consider. They may arise from time to time. This is why you have to create various policies and procedures that are comprehensive and ethical. Both owners and board members of the company should respect ethical approaches to business. This is just what needs to be done. Very often it is the intensely competitive nature of business that tempts people to engage in unethical practices. This is one of the great challenges for humans in many areas of life and not just in business. The advantages of doing things the right way far out weigh the frustration that you will encounter by doing these things.
    Many times, for reasons outside of the control of the company, poor decisions will be made, and clients and customers will be adversely impacted. You’ll notice that the business will be affected by its ethical climate. The company that practices good ethics will tend to do more toward making good on these unfortunate events. There are some companies that will do the opposite, something that most of us have experienced. Many consumers expect this to happen. It seems to be the norm in most situations. We will always remember companies that make ethical decisions, simply because it is so rare. It all comes down to making the decision to employ good business ethics. Simply make the decision and then believe that you will be able to overcome any obstacles set in your path. Of course that takes courage and conviction, as well.

  2. The margin of profit with any small business is always going to be small, which means you need to be on top of your game when running your business and calling the shots. As long as you are able to do the bare minimum, yet not skimp on quality for your customers, you will succeed. If you have a small business, or plan to start one soon, the following principles can help you achieve the best possible results.
    People that run successful home businesses know how much they spend and earn almost down to the penny every single day. How much you earn, and how much you spend, are the sum total of things that represent your profit margins. If you can afford it, you may want to hire an accountant. Software programs can be used, and are usually much cheaper than a paid professional. Taking care of your finances using online services is also a possibility, especially if you’re just starting out and have limited funds. It is just so important to keep track of how much money you spend and earn, so utilize one of these choices.
    Selling stuff on the World Wide Web sometimes requires what is called guerrilla marketing to succeed. It is possible to utilize guerrilla marketing even today, though some of the techniques might be a little gray hat at times. Creative and innovative marketing tactics will push you to higher levels in your online business. You could use a lot of off-line tactics like printing T-shirts and handing out business cards. You need to simply start marketing your business in as many ways as possible to see what sticks and works.

    There are several things that you need to know in order to have great results in any small business. Succeeding online or off-line, especially in our troubled global economy, will probably be more based upon your stamina and your ingenuity. When you run a business, you have to be very flexible and ready to meet the demands of your customers. This article is devoted to presenting strategies to help you get your business off the ground and running.
    Networking is one of the most commonly heard words in business literature, but it’s something that everyone should keep in mind. Whatever business you happen to be in, always try to find other people that are successful to model after. Webinars are usually made available on a weekly basis from people that are already succeeding in several business models online or off-line. Sometimes success follows rapidly when you can actually meet successful people in person. Although they may be too busy to become a personal friend or mentor, you can learn a lot from a brief conversation. Businesses on the World Wide Web, and the entrepreneurs that make millions, are accessible, at times, online. Purchasing a product from someone in Internet marketing usually gives you a free pass to ask them a couple of questions. It is best to be prepared to ask questions that are meaningful, opposed to ones that you should actually already know the answer to.
    If you are able to be consistent and focused when running your business, you should do very well. Stalling is probably your worst enemy in regard to running a business, whereas learning how to prioritize may be your best friend. Instead of actually doing work, many people that have jobs will master the skill of looking like they’re doing something when they actually are not, which is a very poor skill to master. People that manage their own business are well aware that they must not waste any time and that they should have a schedule of what they need to do everyday. If you don’t produce results, you won’t get fired, but you won’t be getting any new customers either. Prioritizing what you need to get done, starting with the most important events, will help you achieve success much more quickly. The success of your business is directly related to your efforts, in that you should not rely on others to make it work for you. That’s why you have to be self-motivated and disciplined, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun running your business. One important rule that many people neglect is the fact that in any business that you start, you need to have a high level of interest in it for it to grow and flourish. After reading this article, hopefully you will have read something to inspire you to create a successful small business that you enjoy.

    I believe that Affirmative Action should be based solely on economic class, not race. Students with lower incomes cannot afford private school, SAT preparation classes, summer career programs, and so many other things that wealthier students have access to. Additionally, the necessity to work part-time impedes poorer students’ ability to participate in extracurricular activities and limits the time they’re able to dedicate to homework and studying. Income is, unfortunately, one of the largest predictors of academic success.

    Yes, minorities generally tend to be more economically disadvantaged. My complaint does not apply to poor minorities at all. However, there are plenty minorities who are quite privileged who unfairly benefit from Affirmative Action. Similarly, there are many low income white students who are overlooked in the admissions process.

    Pretty much everyone who applies to college submits the FAFSA. Colleges should look at the financial information students submit, instead of using race as a factor in admissions. In short, Affirmative action based on economic class is a necessity. Affirmative Action based on race alone is unfair.
