Think You Don’t Have Enough Time to Exercise? Try These 4 Quick Ways to Work Fitness into the Busiest of Days

Posted by Malaika Newman

We all have coworkers who seem to have it all together—including what seems like an impossible exercise routine. We imagine them waking up at 5 AM and tossing together a body and mind nourishing smoothie, heading out for a run while watching the sun rise, and still managing to arrive early at the office with the kind of glow you can’t pay for. Or maybe they use their lunch hour for a local yoga class, hit the gym for a session with a personal trainer after the day ends, or any other number of time-consuming fitness activities.

Posted by Griffin Suber

06.22.16

So you’ve done it: you started your own business. You’ve taken the leap. The next steps can be as exciting as they are terrifying but now that your organization has taken off, it and you will need to adapt on the fly. The name of the game is efficiency and that means spending money on the things you need and saving on the things you don’t. Young companies, in their eagerness to get to work, too often fall into traditional models of doing business which can trap capital, stifle growth and leave employees ill-equipped to do their job.

Stay In Bounds This March Madness With a Little Office Etiquette

Posted by Griffin Suber

04.01.16

It’s March, which means two things: NCAA basketball is about to own the airwaves
and you’ve probably already received an invitation to your office’s bracket pool. While some of us look forward to the Madness (s’go Buffs!) and others simply tolerate it, recent studies reveal the quantifiable hit businesses take on when their employees take a time out as opposed to keeping their heads in the game. According to the research, 50 million American workers will participate in an office pool (including the President) and companies stand to lose $1.2 billion as a result of unproductive hours spent researching or watching games. While employees will undoubtedly get caught up in the drama of conference rivalries and underdog upsets, loyalty to one’s alma mater over their company’s bottom line can put businesses in a sticky spot. Avoid a technical foul by adhering to some simple office etiquette in this holy month of March.
