Why Investing Is Important

unnamed.jpgHave you ever wondered why we invest or why it seems so vital that we do? For that matter, what comes to mind when you see or hear the word “invest”?

What Is Networking?

I recently attended a large networking event put on by a recognizable Pittsburgh group, and throughout the event I spoke with many other professionals in the business world. I learned from them and what they had to say, and I also made some good contacts to follow-up with later in the week. This networking experience was fairly similar to most of my networking experiences, but after the event I couldn’t help but think, “What is networking?”
It’s often a term thrown around casually and can be used to describe almost any social interaction with an intention of gaining a connection or business, but I was thinking beyond that. What does it mean to network? What are my goals when networking? Why is networking so important? Walk with me as I unravel my thoughts on these questions and explain just what networking is to me.

Should Creative Differences Be Encouraged?

I recently had a conversation with a fellow Steubenville dweller and the entire conversation struck me and made me stop in my tracks and think. The conversation was all about how the other person’s colleagues have entirely different opinions about the national political landscape. He went on about how a select few are controlling the majority of our leaders, how every political leader is merely out for their own good, and how one candidate’s view on health care reform are the reason he would never consider voting for him. lightbulb.jpg

I thought, “What is so wrong about this conversation? About this way of thinking?” So often I get caught up in my own views of the world and my opinions on various issues that I forget to remember how important it is to allow people to think creatively and respond to the issues at hand. Only when we allow this type of dialogue, conversation and freethinking will we yield creative solutions to the many issues we face.
