Money-Making Reports Available From BarterNews
Time To Become An "Entre-Employee?"
More than 12 million Americans are jobless and 40% of these
individuals have been out of work for more than six months. The U.S.
economy overall may be improving, but many still cannot find a job.
This trend will only continue in the foreseeable future says James
Altucher, managing director of asset management firm Formula
Capital. The author and venture capitalist believes the U.S. is
moving toward an "employee-less society."
He asserts that
businesses used the 2008 financial crisis as an excuse to get rid of
deadwood, and the firing trend hasn't stopped. Companies no longer
show loyalty to employees. They're more interested in increasing
profits and revenue — by letting go of expensive staff
employees (due to health care benefits, 401k contributions) and
replacing them with cheaper temp employees. Altucher says this
temporary-staffing sweeping the nation is happening in every sector
of the economy. And he should know, as he sits on the board of a
publicly traded temp-hiring firm.
The changing employment
climate has made Altucher an advocate of employees quitting their
jobs. He lists ten reasons why workers should give their two-week
✔The middle class is dead
✔You've been replaced
✔Corporations don't like you
✔Money is not happiness
✔Count right now how many people can make a major decision that
can ruin your life
✔Is your job satisfying your needs?
✔Your retirement plan is poor
✔It's OK to take baby steps
✔Abundance will never
come from your job
Of course, packing up your cubicle and leaving a steady
paycheck is a lot easier said than done. Even if an employee waits
to be fired to collect unemployment benefits, the weekly sum will be
much less than one's current take home pay.
offers a compromise: stay at your job but become an
"entre-employee." By this he means building connections and
networking with employees in other divisions, or even starting
another business on the side.
"Look for alternative sources
of income," he advises. "Learn your employer's connections and
expand your services, because you can't relax anymore. You have to
stay ahead of the economy."
Altucher says the techniques he
preaches work — he has applied them to his own career with success.

Etiquette Tips For
Add the following skills to your arsenal, and you'll become more
comfortable when facing social dining out functions:
Make your business deals over breakfast or lunch … save
dinner for special occasions or out-of-town guests.
If you're hosting, be sure the bill never comes to the table.
Order the same number of courses that your guest orders, so you're
both being served and eating at the same times.
Never order the most expensive item on the menu.
Stay away from difficult to eat foods like crispy bacon, muffins
that crumble, or pizza with stringy cheese.
Wine is fine, but do not overindulge.
Keep your solid food to the left and liquids to the right.
Once you've used a utensil, never let it touch the table again.
Wait for the host to place his or her napkin in their lap before
Place your napkin on your chair when you get up.
Don't answer your cell phone during the meal. Keep it on vibrate, or
better yet in the car.
Cards are not to be given out during the meal—only before or
Exchange business cards selectively and privately among the
individuals in the group.
Gradually include business talk as the meal progresses, it should
not be discussed on an empty stomach. Place briefcases and purses
under the table.
Always send a follow-up letter and thank-you note to the client.
