The truth about doing business today - Money, People or Conscience, which comes first?

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.
With the challenges in today's economic hard times businesses either big, small or micro enterprises are facing the hard times they never had in decades.

The truth is really to face today as what really has happened when every business wants to salvage their dreams, their employees, their ideals and survival. If big institutions like Lehman Brothers are on the brink of collapse, what can more small independent small business be like.

For the $10 sale if someone is lucky for today's sale, it we not been enough for the huge bank overdfraft fees, and non-sufficienr charges that the banks and lenders will have to imposed to these entrepreneurs having the $10 sale of the day.

Yet, the above subject matters can be lenthily discussed and argue but I would like to deviate on the impact on the employee morale, insecurities, and customer disatisfaction from long time patriontic customers.

Lately, indiustries like hospitality has had really big challenges on brands being franchise. Consistently in service, brand and guest experiences

Franchised Full service hotel brands have to cut or lay of high and middle level managers and have their family fill in this positions. The service standards comes a bit shaken as there are missing parts of the sturcture. The importance of not having a Human Resurces Dept. team and strategies makes the systems more vulnerable to a lot of issues.

Turn over, training, personal interest, and who has the clout is now affected by almost a family owned entreprise. It would have not been bad if it was a growing company but not a company with a full service known brand.

I guess the bottom line question is "Can full service hotel properties" be operated like a family owned economy lodging to save on cost but at the same tiem deliver the same standards and service expected by the guests who patronize the reknowned brand.

Another is also affects not just the kind of guests we attract but also the employees that we are trying to hire to work for us while helping us promote and market the business as they feel great on being a part of the team.

I guess, enterpreneuers have different goals. Some are pro-money whatever it takes, some are money and taking caring of the guests but not too emplyee focus, and yet some are money, employees and guest focus.

A lot of people say that only big companies who have the financial resources can do the great balance of the money, employees and customers. But I guess, no mater if we are selling hotdogs on the streets, a newspaper venedor or a small cafe, it still starts from the entrepreneur on why did he/she went into business.

Personally, I would rather do the right things and fail or closed shop but at least have that feeling that I did my best to be fair. Than, be holding the world of greed, lying down with so much money but still on the back of our mind have some kind of myth of conscience or karma.

So if you are an entrepreneur, which do you want to become?

America's Dreyus Nixon's Case to Trump's Present Scenario

America's Dreyfus written by Bestselling Author Joan Brady author of the Theory of War writes on the trial of the century during the Nixon years. Similar to incumbent Donald Trump, Richard Nixon also had a single aim in life, "Win".
In 2016 this book had so many reviews about the real story of Alger Hiss. Joan Brady believes that Hiss was innocent but thinks, as did many of his friends at the time, that he was suicidally naive about what he faced. Chambers had appeared before HUAC in 1948 and, in the fashion of the day, had produced a list of alleged communists in government service.
The main summary of this book is that it is about the dirty tricks employed by Richard Nixon and his allies in the late 1940s and early 1950s to secure the conviction of Alger Hiss, a former government official, on a trumped-up charge of perjury. 
Thus, the start of the discussion on the statements of conversations could have been taped, was just a strategy to ensure the loyalty of Former FBI …

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails

Touching on Hillary's campaign rift with the Democratic party and talking about the reluctance of supporters of Bernie Sanders in supporting Clinton as front runner sort of explained initially why people then thought they had a flawed presidential candidate.

The book discusses on Clinton's winning the popular vote yet was not really successful in getting a lot of Senator Sanders supporters. Although Sec. Clinton's campaign staff are her deep loyalist, she spent enormous amounts of time asking existential questions to them.

Yet in summary although the book centers around on the ultimate failure of Hillary, the problematic circumstances and fiasco has nothing to do with her.

The Real North Korea by Andrei Lankov published in 2013 talks about the birth of the regime in 1947 after the election of Kim Il Sung known as "Liberator of Small Nations Generalissimo Stalin!"
Thus, the book describes that since 1972, all North Koreans above 16 years old are required to patch a badge showing Kim Il Sung's visage when they leave their homes. Likewise Kim Il Sung's portraits were to be placed at every office and house. As it goes by 1980 portraits of his successor son Kim Jong Il were displayed side by side his father.
