Access Distance Learning Programs – Upgrade Your Education

Did you guys have a great Thanksgiving? I really hope you did and that you’ll survive today’s Black Friday Frenzy… But let’s get back to basics, our education and how to boost our careers. Education is one thing that can change your life on its own. Very few things have the power to do that, of course very few things also take the work ethic and discipline that a graduate degree program takes. Experience alone no longer cuts it with most companies, or in most lines of work. So access Distance Learning Programs and see if you can find a program that fits your wishes.

You need more than that to get yourself to the top of the ladder. Employers seek skilled and educated individuals, and if you’re competing with a variety of others who have an undergraduate degree a distance learning graduate degree program will give you the one up on the competition.…

How to avoid distraction when working at home

THE SECRET TO THE DISAPPEARING DOORS PROBLEM

The disappearing doors problem is when you think opportunities you never knew existed will disappear. This post gives some advice on how to manage your opportunities.

A WORK AT HOME INTERNET JOB AND THE DISAPPEARING DOORS SITUATION

Home Internet businesses come in many types. This can create a problem which was identified by the French philosopher Eric Frohm in 1941. He wrote a book called Escape From Freedom, which I thought seemed a strange title. Why would anyone want to escape from freedom?

However, as I have gained experience I can see what Frohm saw all those years ago. The situation we have arrived at in our modern day societies is one of too many opportunities as opposed to too few. We are constantly told of the things we can and should do before we die:

  • 100 places to visit before we die
  • 100 historical sites to visit
  • The next must-see film
  • The next must-visit restaurant

I am saying these choices are neither inherently good nor bad.…

The Vocational Education Act of 1963 Explained

The Vocational Education Act of 1963 required all U.S. states to set up detailed plans and reports if they want to qualify for specific Federal education funds. These state reports must describe the existing processes, which planning initiatives were made and which problems the individual states had been encountering.

Commonalities and differences in all of the States’ education planning processes were identified and various development and implementation methods needed to be described. There were discussions regarding the origins of data that was going into the different State plans and the most important steps to write and review the States’ plan draft were traced.

Vocational Education Act of 1963

The Vocational Education Act of 1963 was implemented by one of America’s most prominent Presidents, John F. Kennedy, who had set up an advisory board for the evaluation of and make recommendations about existing vocational education programs in America.…

Vocational Education

A vocational school is also known as a trade school or career school. It provides vocational training so that students will learn the skills that they will need in order to do a particular job fairly well. Check out this TEDx video about vocational education at Cranbrook School for Women:

This also includes knowledge about which techniques will work better to do one type of job over another, the safety procedures that need to be followed when doing a particular job, how to operate equipment and machinery in an efficient manner that will both provide support to the capabilities of its human operator and at the same time produce its optimum performance befitting of a machine, which unlike a human can consistently produce work without complaining or getting tired.…

How important is art for you? What matters more?

From the barista who serves your coffee to forward-thinking teachers, we all have creativity within us. We can be creative if we want to.

Art can be in everything we do. I imagine if you’re passionate about it, you might think it’s pretty important.

You might think about it a lot.  You might get frustrated if you can’t seem to finish a project or bring one of your ideas to life, says Emily who develops tests for the U.S. and Canadian High School Equivalency (HSE) tests.
She says: sometimes, at the end of the day, I look around me and see that I didn’t accomplish much at all, and my professional goal is to create at least one new test for the website BestGEDClasses.org that helps students to get ready for the HSE test. Sometimes other things take over and whatever we create for the day doesn’t matter anymore.…

Operational effectiveness behind the provocation: NoCRM

I have come across YouDontNeedaCRM in a startup contest. It caught my attention right away as I spent several years in big or medium corporation sales organizations. This is because I could relate to the operational difficulties of putting in place a practical and functional sales tool. I had to listen to what they have to offer.

I was pleasantly surprised with their presentation and I asked more details. Sunny Paris, the CEO, kindly provided the below post to my queries. They are going rather viral in the SME (Small/Medium Enterprise) domain and they have a multi-geography implementation. I believe and Sunny confirms that they can be deployed at team level of big accounts.

Enjoy your reading to understand the truth behind the provocation!…

How to make use of infomercials

Call or click now!

Crucial to all direct-response TV efforts is the industry’s mantra-the call to action. At the end of the day, the primary goal of most infomercials is not to build brand recognition but to motivate the viewer to act, whether that means to buy something or go somewhere.

Every direct-response TV segment includes a toll-free number or Web address or both. Typically incentives are part of the equation. For instance, depending on the cable station airing it, Excite@Home’s infomercial touts offers ranging from free installation to three-month subscriptions at no cost.

“Now that the chips are down, accountability is no longer an option-it’s a requirement,” says Lee Frederiksen, founder and CEO of the Frederiksen Group, the Falls Church, Va.-based direct-response marketing firm that created “The Monster Show.”…
