What is Webinar  –

A business that communicates effectively has the advantage.  Webinars, or web seminars, are an excellent way to connect with employees and clients alike.  But did you know they can also enhance a company’s profitability by saving time, reducing costs, and increasing levels of comprehension among your staff and client base?  Read ahead to learn a few easy-to-implement ways that webinars can boost your business.


Employee Training –

Webinars are a great method of teaching employees how to fulfill basic job requirements.  Current employees can access these webinars to brush up on existing skills or even to expand their skillset.  It also allows new hires to begin training before they even start, decreasing the time and resources dedicated to bringing them up to speed.


CEO’s can Communicate with Employees –

CEOs, COO, and other executive-level individuals will find that webinars are an easy way of communicating business goals to their employees.  It’s perfect for their busy schedules, as it allows them to easily record seminars in their free time and make them available to the entire company.


As a Substitute for Weekly Meetings –

Weekly meetings are a staple for most businesses, but it requires everyone to be available and present at a predetermined time and place.  Employees working abroad or from home can find themselves excluded from such meetings.  Replacing your meeting with a webinar can communicate weekly goals while allowing employees to view them when their schedule permits.  In addition, these webinars are stored so they can be replayed if clarification is needed.


Teach Company Software –

It can be frustrating for IT personnel to guide employees through software updates and to resolve internal issues over the phone.  Instead of hunting through support articles or making personal requests regarding common issues, employees can watch solution webinars recorded by your support team.


Providing Product Demonstrations to Sales Staff –

Sales supervisors or product managers can use webinars to document the features and common applications of new products.  These can be made accessible to sales staff so they can sell the product more effectively.


Product Tutorials for Customers –

Companies can make product tutorials available to current or prospective clients.  These webinars can detail specific product features, tips and tricks, and instructions in a way that’s easy for customers to understand.


An Online HR Handbook –

An online HR “handbook” webinar will allow employees to learn about specific company policies in an easy-to-reference fashion.  Not only will this make company policies more accessible and comprehensible, it will eliminate the need to print a copy for each employee.


An Alternative to Social Media Marketing –

Webinars can be posted on public company portals or social media sites as a form of low-cost marketing.  Essentially, you can create a commercial for your product, service, or company at a fraction of the production cost while bypassing traditional advertising fees.


With these simple but effective methods, you can improve the way your company does business and enhance your bottom line.

52 Must Read Quotes from Legendary Investor – Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is without question the most successful investor of our time (and possibly of all time).  His savvy deal making abilities coupled with his creative and cheerful personality allowed him to achieve success like no other.

While searching the web for the comments he’s made through the years, I found many insightful comments that truly show off Mr. Buffett’s knowledge so I want to share 52 of these with you below!  Let me know what you think!

    1. A public-opinion poll is no substitute for thought.
    2. Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.
    3. I always knew I was going to be rich. I don’t think I ever doubted it for a minute.
    4. I am quite serious when I say that I do not believe there are, on the whole earth besides, so many intensified bores as in these United States. No man can form an adequate idea of the real meaning of the word, without coming here.
    5. I buy expensive suits. They just look cheap on me.

    1. I don’t have a problem with guilt about money. The way I see it is that my money represents an enormous number of claim checks on society. It’s like I have these little pieces of paper that I can turn into consumption. If I wanted to, I could hire 10,000 people to do nothing but paint my picture every day for the rest of my life. And the GNP would go up. But the utility of the product would be zilch, and I would be keeping those 10,000 people from doing AIDS research, or teaching, or nursing. I don’t do that though. I don’t use very many of those claim checks. There’s nothing material I want very much. And I’m going to give virtually all of those claim checks to charity when my wife and I die.
    2. I don’t look to jump over 7-foot bars: I look around for 1-foot bars that I can step over.
    3. I never attempt to make money on the stock market. I buy on the assumption that they could close the market the next day and not reopen it for five years.
    4. If a business does well, the stock eventually follows.
    5. If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.
    6. If you’re in the luckiest 1 per cent of humanity, you owe it to the rest of humanity to think about the other 99 per cent.
    7. In the business world, the rear view mirror is always clearer than the windshield.
    8. Investors making purchases in an overheated market need to recognize that it may often take an extended period for the value of even an outstanding company to catch up with the price they paid.
    9. It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.
    10. It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction.
    11. It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.
    12. I’ve reluctantly discarded the notion of my continuing to manage the portfolio after my death – abandoning my hope to give new meaning to the term ‘thinking outside the box.’
    13. Let blockheads read what blockheads wrote.
    14. Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profitfrom folly rather than participate in it.
    15. Long ago, Sir Isaac Newton gave us three laws of motion, which were the work of genius. But Sir Isaac’s talents didn’t extend to investing: He lost a bundle in the South Sea Bubble, explaining later, ‘I can calculate the movement of the stars, but not the madness of men.’ If he had not been traumatized by this loss, Sir Isaac might well have gone on to discover the Fourth Law of Motion: For investors as a whole, returns decrease as motion increases
    16. Most people get interested in stocks when everyone else is. The time to get interested is when no one else is. You can’t buy what is popular and do well.
    17. Never count on making a good sale. Have the purchase price be so attractive that even a mediocre sale gives good results.
    18. Of the billionaires I have known, money just brings out the basic traits in them. If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars.
    19. Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.
    20. Only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked.
    21. Our favorite holding period is forever.

  1. Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.
  2. Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.
  3. Risk is a part of God’s game, alike for men and nations.
  4. Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1.
  5. Wall Street is the only place that people ride to work in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway.
  6. The business schools reward difficult complex behavior more than simple behavior, but simple behavior is more effective.
  7. The investor of today does not profit from yesterday’s growth.
  8. The line separating investment and speculation, which is never bright and clear, becomes blurred still further when most market participants have recently enjoyed triumphs. Nothing sedates rationality like large doses of effortless money. After a heady experience of that kind, normally sensible people drift into behavior akin to that of Cinderella at the ball. They know that overstaying the festivities — that is, continuing to speculate in companies that have gigantic valuations relative to the cash they are likely to generate in the future — will eventually bring on pumpkins and mice. But they nevertheless hate to miss a single minute of what is one helluva party. Therefore, the giddy participants all plan to leave just seconds before midnight. There’s a problem, though: They are dancing in a room in which the clocks have no hands.
  9. The only time to buy these is on a day with no “y” in it.
  10. The smarter the journalists are, the better off society is. For to a degree, people read the press to inform themselves-and the better the teacher, the better the student body.
  11. There are all kinds of businesses that Charlie and I don’t understand, but that doesn’t cause us to stay up at night. It just means we go on to the next one, and that’s what the individual investor should do.
  12. There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.
  13. Time is the friend of the wonderful company, the enemy of the mediocre.
  14. Value is what you get.
  15. We believe that according the name ‘investors’ to institutions that trade actively is like calling someone who repeatedly engages in one-night stands a ‘romantic.’
  16. We don’t get paid for activity, just for being right. As to how long we’ll wait, we’ll wait indefinitely.
  17. We enjoy the process far more than the proceeds.
  18. We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful.
  19. We’ve long felt that the only value of stock forecasters is to make fortune tellers look good. Even now, Charlie and I continue to believe that short-term market forecasts are poison and should be kept locked up in a safe place, away from children and also from grown-ups who behave in the market like children.
  20. When a management team with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact.
  21. Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.
  22. Why not invest your assets in the companies you really like? As Mae West said, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful”.
  23. Wide diversification is only required when investors do not understand what they are doing.
  24. You do things when the opportunities come along. I’ve had periods in my life when I’ve had a bundle of ideas come along, and I’ve had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I’ll do something. If not, I won’t do a damn thing.
  25. You only have to do a very few things right in your life so long as you don’t do too many things wrong.
  26. Your premium brand had better be delivering something special, or it’s not going to get the business
