    New Minimum Wage Laws Will Hurt Small Businesses, Study Says

    What is my brand’s mental file folder?
    You can make space for your business in your customers’ busy brains — but only if you position yourself so that you’re not taxing their attention. Brand positioning helps you help your target customers think of your business. Imagine brand positioning as filing your business in the right folder in your customer’s mind. If she knows where to put you as a mental file folder, she will keep you. If she knows where to look for you, she will find you.
    Dressing For Success And The Achievement Of Your Dreams
    We’re all familiar with the old adage, "Don't judge a book by its cover." While we aspire to refrain from snap judgments when meeting new people, we should not assume others will always show us this same courtesy.
