Are CEOs Sociopaths?
By Lance Winslow
It seems that those on the bottom love to bash those on the top. The poor bash the rich, the losers bash the winners - and our 2016 Presidential Election was a perfect example of this reality in our society. Unions, managers, and employees bash CEOs. Some will tell that those who seek power of authority over others are sociopaths, diabolical criminals under their suits. Still, I ask, is it really so? Okay so, let's discuss the leaders and CEOs of our day and talk about the psychology it takes to do those jobs, shall we?
With regards to sociopathic CEOs, well you know, they do teach manipulation techniques at Wharton, Harvard, Yale, and call it leadership, so we cannot be too surprised at what we get. Doesn't impress me much, but I understand the fallacy of leadership, much of it is a con-game. I suppose one can't survive their own reputation without being a little bit of a scoundrel?
Still, I'd trust a CEO more than I'd trust a bum on the street telling me they wanted $2 for some food outside the liquor store where they hang out all day. And 33% of those on Food Stamps are probably conning the system a little too. We have line workers doing work slowdowns, milking jobs, faking leave of absences, sick time, etc. I think the real problem is with the 'humans' in general and not the CEOs, blue collar, religions, capitalism or anything else.
Integrity should count for something, but it often doesn't. The game is rigged and now it's rigged against the middle class. If we don't respect the middle class, we won't have one anymore, that's evident. Still, to automatically bash all CEOs as sociopaths is quite problematic, and it is a little hypocritical of unions or employees to do that - it's not as if all of the rank and file are the picture of integrity either.
Whenever I hear someone smearing another or attacking someone's character, I think of all my years running my franchising company and some of the names I was called, things I know I didn't deserve. So, I guess I am here to defend our CEOs today, those whose leadership skills are employing all of you. Why not just acknowledge that and say thank you is my thinking.
Care to debate on any of these points, this is a fun dialogue indeed, thanks for reading by the way! Sorry for my cynical tone, I guess I shouldn't watch Cable TV news in the background as I write this article for you. Please consider all this and think on it.

Are you trying to run your own business from home around one or more children? Or is this something you want to do and are looking into?
Well hopefully I can be of some help as I'm a mum and just about managing to cope with a toddler and a newborn while working from home!! I'll give you a few tips I've thought of!
So as you'd expect it's not easy, so just let that make you feel a bit better! Even if some mums look like they're perfect in every way, I'm very sure they're not!
My 8 week old baby (yes 8 weeks already! Therefore she had her first jabs today which were pretty awful. So horrible to see her so upset. My mum came along to help me as had my toddler too, who very sweetly kissed her injected leg and was concerned about her crying), I digress! I'll start again! My 8 week old baby girl normally has a lay in after feeding a few times through the night so I get to give my toddler boy attention after making his breakfast by playing with his trains or puzzles. He does love his iPad so sometimes I think I could be getting on with some work like listening to training webinars or writing my blog while he watches it, but I'd feel too guilty. Also the main reason why I want to work from home is to get to spend more time with my children so if I'm working then I'm doing the opposite of what I want to be doing!
Plus when you play with your children you need to give them your full attention, they do notice if you're casually looking at your phone. So it's best to be in the moment with them and cherish that playtime as you won't get it back!
Yesterday was one of those mornings where little things kept going wrong such as porridge over spilling in the microwave (which was actually handy because I gave it a good well needed clean!), breaking a bowl, the floor getting really wet and so on that my favourite word that morning was the 'F' one! So I had to be careful not to use it when Tommy was about as he copies now!
Beforehand I would have been more stressed because I'd feel if I'm not playing with the children then I should be working on my business, but after reflecting on things I've chosen to not let myself get stressed because it is unnecessary, not good for me or the children.
So here are my top tips that I now use!
Work when they're sleeping as then they don't know you're not with them! For instance I am writing this blog now as they're snoozing on me on the sofa! This isn't a regular occurrence however so mostly I blog in the evenings when toddler in bed & baby asleep on me!
On a weekly planner (can get them online or from WH Smith) write down times when you can spend some time on your business, for example listening to training in the car, while babies are sleeping, on your lunchbreak (if working) etc. OK your results might not come so quickly if you don't spend hours and hours a week on your business but they'll still come. It's called the compound effect, success is built on doing little things consistently.
Get out of the house! I find days where we do stuff easier and more fulfilling. If you go to playgroups your toddler can happily play and socialise while you look after baby, or if you have made friends at groups they love to hold your baby while you interact with your toddler! Children learn and take in lots while being out and about so it's good for babies as well as toddlers! Then also you have experiences which can help with your business, such as networking or having topics to blog about.
Use video. Video marketing is fantastic for your business whether it be or Facebook Live or a YouTube video. It's quicker than writing and you can do it anywhere! It might be daunting at first but just have a few practices and you'll soon get the hang of it! I did a 90 day video challenge within the online business I do where only other members see them and we'd give each other feedback!
Just wing it! Basically just BELIEVE you can do it and you will! You may think you're failing and how can you possibly do all this - look after children, take care of the house and work a business from home - but you can! It's your life you've been fortunate to live, so have fun, make mistakes, learn new skills and just go with the flow. It is overwhelming but as long as you keep trying and keep going, you'll be successful, in home life and business.
Bonus tip #6
Wear baby in a sling! Last night I made the dinner, bathed toddler and got him ready for bed all whilst carrying baby in the sling! Handy when you need an extra pair of hands!
I hope my tips have been helpful to you!

Your marketing methods have to be powerful and they need to make a statement. What is the message you wish to convey to your audience? How will you be successful in doing just that? The last thing you want is the promotion to be a flop because they took something else away from it. Exhibition contractors are professionals who can help you get everything accomplished.
Getting it Started
It takes time to create ideas and to take concepts and turn them into visual materials. You need to get started early so you aren't in a rush for trade shows or exhibitions coming up. Take your time to find the right exhibition contractors to do the job for you. They should have plenty of skill, overall talent, and be willing to share with you their types of equipment and methods.
You may be worried about the cost, but this is a wise investment as long as it all gets done correctly. Don't cut corners and hire an entity that can't perform to the level you need. Saving that money will cost you in the long term as you will lose consumers to your competitors. Evaluate the exhibition contractors to get results you can be proud of that generate profits.
Avoid a Trend
Don't be enticed to offer materials that focus on a given trend though. Most of these professional providers will also steer you away from such a concept. By the time you finish the circuit for the trade shows, the trend could already be over. Then you will be trying to get their attention with materials that are outdated and they aren't going to take any interest in them.
There won't be time for you to get something new created in enough time to continue with the circuit. You will be missing out on sales and it is going to be a messy ordeal. You may decide it isn't worth it to even continue the circuit. Think about the entire process and how you can offer something relevant every step of the way. Then work with your exhibition contractors to do it!
Such professionals aren't mind readers, and they aren't going to be able to know what you really want. You need to share information with them about certain concepts that must be included. Show them images if you have anything like that they can work from. With some basic details, they can start to come up with ideas.
When the exhibition contractors sit down with you to evaluate the ideas, be open minded and objective. Speak up about what you like and tell them if there is something you aren't fond of. They can make changes to the design based on your feedback and then show it to you again. It shouldn't be created until you are very happy with the way it looks.
Be a Major Player
Your business image is a huge part of getting those in your niche market to pay attention to you. This can make the difference between them becoming your long term loyal customer or doing so for one of your competitors. With the right exhibition contractors on your side, you can be a major player. Your materials won't be easily overlooked.
When you go to trade shows and exhibitions, you already know those in attendance have an interest in the types of products or services you offer. However, you are also surrounded by other businesses that can also offer something to them. What are you going to show them that is appealing and gets them coming to you and not a competitor? The designs do matter!
Offering a booth or presentation at a trade show or exhibition is a great way to get your products or services known. The way in which you offer the information can influence the impact it will have with your potential customer base. We are a leader in offering amazing options for you to have a successful outcome with your set up and presentation. We offer products that are durable, easy to set up and take down, and customised you're your needs. Check out our website to see what we can offer you at http://www.ceiexhibitions.co.uk.

Making it big in business can be extra challenging most especially in this digital age. The irony with all the existing marketing and promotion strategies is that it has also made the competition much stiffer and difficult.
Well, big businesses have it much easier because they have enough working capital to spend on print and broadcast advertising. They can also launch massive promotion campaigns among their target audience by conducting events. On the other hand, for small businesses, their resources are quite limited. They can do flyers, brochures, calling cards, among others. However, they would find it disadvantageous to engage into much more expensive advertising campaigns.
The coming of the Internet has changed the playing field drastically. This is because this new information medium has given small and big businesses alike an additional marketing strategy that is not as expensive as the traditional ones. In fact, it is so effective, most marketing and promotion strategies of many businesses are now concentrated on this medium, all exerting their effort to build a massive online presence.
Indeed, building an online presence definitely offers businesses the needed boost in terms of advertising. Here are some of the reasons why building an online presence can be very advantageous to companies:
It allows businesses to become more accessible to its customers. Online presence has allowed businesses to reach its target customers. In the same way, it has made it possible for customers to easily access businesses for possible services or goods that they would need without having to leave the comforts of their homes. This has changed the landscape of consumerism and most people would prefer transacting with businesses that can offer this kind of off-site service.
The online space can become a business' office space. Instead of spending for rent or purchasing a physical office space, the established website and other social media sites can become an avenue where customers can go and inquire, purchase goods, or avail of services.
The Internet expands the reach of a business' market. The physical world has so many limitations. A small business in a small town can only cater to its immediate locale. However, establishing an online presence has allowed small Asian stores to sell their goods to people in America without having to spend so much on advertising. Online presence literally opens a portal where business has become boundless almost surpassing geographical limits.
When used effectively, it can complement traditional marketing and advertising. Given that online media has yet to dominate the top-most sought after information media, advertising though print and broadcast still helps in reaching the more traditional customers. And, when used together, they will be able to craft a very effective business promotion strategy.
It can be used as leverage over competitors. If used properly, online presence can help a business boost its reps especially if its rivals in the market do not use this kind of promotional campaign.
However, building online presence is not just about setting up a website and uploading contents to your heart's content. That is why it is also very important to know the various strategies in place that could be used to effectively boost a business' online presence.
