For nearly two years, Darrin has been the sole audio engineer for a local radio show in his home town. As Darrin listened to many of the business leaders who came on the show, eventually meeting them in person, and connecting with them through social media, he began to realize that many of the leaders were coaches, and speakers with powerful, life-changing messages. Many of them had taken to social media to share their message with the world. However, in many cases, Darrin noticed the missing ingredient that could truly unlock the potential of their messages and bring them the revenue they needed to keep changing lives. While their messages were on point, they needed to take their quality to a higher level! The videos they shot had poor audio, lighting, backgrounds, or all of the above. The audio on their CDs, podcasts, and other projects didn't have that professional “polish” or “sheen” to it. Darrin heard and saw a need. Darrin began sharing tips with these leaders to help them improve their production quality, even attending conferences, and turning his hotel rooms into makeshift “studios” to record audio professionally for them so they could hear the difference. This effort only had a limited reach and impact though, and Darrin realized this. So he began shooting videos of his own to explain ways the leaders could improve their production quality. These videos covered various topics, mainly having to do with audio. However, through continued conversations and recording sessions with these leaders, Darrin saw an even bigger need. A step-by-step guide to help these coaches take their production quality to the next level! So in order to help more people at once, he drew on his 15+ years experience in the audio/visual production world to catalog best practices, tricks & tips, and recommendations on affordable gear into one publication - his first - Set the Tone! 1.

Charles H. Ferguson, who electrified the world with his Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job, now explains how a predator elite took over the country, step by step, and he exposes the networks of academic, financial, and political influence, in all recent administrations, that prepared the predators' path to conquest. Over the last several decades, the United States has undergone one of the most radical social and economic transformations in its history. Finance has become America's dominant industry, while manufacturing, even for high technology industries, has nearly disappeared. The financial sector has become increasingly criminalized, with the widespread fraud that caused the housing bubble going completely unpunished. Federal tax collections as a share of GDP are at their lowest level in 60 years, with the wealthy and highly profitable corporations enjoying the greatest tax reductions. Most shockingly, the United States, so long the beacon of opportunity for the ambitious poor, has become one of the world's most unequal and unfair societies. If you're smart and a hard worker, but your parents aren't rich, you're now better off being born in Munich, Germany, or in Singapore than in Cleveland, Ohio, or New York. This radical shift did not happen by accident. Ferguson shows how, since the Reagan administration in the 1980s, both major political parties have become captives of the moneyed elite. It was the Clinton administration that dismantled the regulatory controls that protected the average citizen from avaricious financiers. It was the Bush team that destroyed the federal revenue base with its grotesquely skewed tax cuts for the rich. And it is the Obama White House that has allowed financial criminals to continue to operate unchecked, even after supposed "reforms" installed after the collapse of 2008. Predator Nation reveals how once-revered figures like 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Shapiro. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/003086/bk_rand_003086_sample.mp3.

For 20 years, Great Place to Work has published its gold-standard list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, which appears first in Fortune magazine. But its latest research shows that what was good enough to be a “great” workplace 10 or 20 years ago is not good enough now. Even at the best workplaces, leaders can - and must - do better. The vital differentiator for companies now is their people - all their people. CEO Michael C. Bush and his team connect the dots to show how the emerging economy is about developing every ounce of human potential. Today's business climate is defined by speed, rapidly evolving social technologies, and customers and employees who expect values, not just value. As a result, leaders have to create an outstanding culture for all, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. They must build a Great Place to Work for All. The authors share new research on how Great Places to Work for All outperform in the stock market and grow revenue three times faster than less-inclusive rivals. Bush and his team tell surprising, inspiring stories about how closing gaps in the work experience between groups of employees pays off for everyone. They document the ways Great Places to Work for All benefit the individuals working there and contribute to a better global society. And they introduce a new leadership framework, showing the advantages of what the authors define as Level 5 “For All” leaders. The times demand executives who not only are business-savvy but are devoted to fairness, have deep faith in people, and empower all individuals to reach their full potential. This is a call to lead so organizations bring out the best in everyone. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wes Bleed. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/107665/bk_acx0_107665_sample.mp3.

Indian Railways, the world's third largest network and one among the largest employers, has been contributing to the industrial, economic and social development of the country. It faced a severe financial crisis in 2001 which resulted in abnormal hike in freight rate. This coupled with lack of customer oriented services, led to giving up of its market share to roadways. However, certain measures taken to control cost and increase revenue brought IR from the acute financial crisis to a noticeable success which is technically known as 'turnaround'. The present study was undertaken in a situation where there has been a disagreement in respect of factors that contributed to turnaround. Research, being a fact finding enquiry, concentrates on identifying these factors.SR, the fifth largest zone in IR, with its lines spread over the southern states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, stood an exception to the general phenomenon of increased surplus. So, the researcher makes an attempt to study to what extent the turnaround measures have improved the financial performance in SR. The book is a must read for academicians, administrators, beaurocrats, policy-makers and aspiring researchers.
Project Report from the year 2012 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, grade: GPA 3.4 (1,7), University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this project paper is to summarize the "key factors for success in e-commerce" for anyone who thinks of stepping into the online-business branch. This can be used as a guideline to save time, verify the usefulness and/or the attainability of the desired results.Since the first appearance of the Internet to the public mass in the early 1990s, many enterprises and entrepreneurs tried to use this technology for the advantage of their own business. What was seen as a revolutionary step in business management is now a daily part of managing a business. The use of the Internet has grown significantly in a short period of time, to be more specific in numbers, the number of users from 1995 till 2011 has grown approximately from 16 million to 2.251 million users and is still growing. That is a significant growth of 14068.75%.Since then the web presentation has evolved from a simple text into a much more complex information tool. Users of the Internet are now able to communicate, interact and share information with each other. This development has opened up many opportunities for entrepreneurs. To name a few advantages: gaining new customers, generating contacts, introducing your brand and products and of course increasing your revenue and profit has become fairly easy.This kind of practice could also be defined under the term "electronic commerce" also known as e-commerce and e-comm. To define it more correctly, the term e-commerce is the buying and selling of products, services and information over electronic systems such as the Internet.Even though this very useful information tool is available to us, the Internet doesn't always mean success and profit gains. On the contrary, introducing your company brand, services and or products in an improper and unprofessional way could lead to reputation loss, which also can lead to revenue and profit loss. Sometimes it can even lead into losing your most loyal customers. Furthermore the rivalry between businesses on the Internet is so immense that if your brand is not introduced correctly, visitors may prefer your rivals. Just to name a few bad e-commerce examples: citydeli.com, rzent.co.nr, arngren.net, and lingscars.com.
An organization can have a high number of "likes" on its Facebook page and lots of "followers" on its Twitter account, but does that mean anything from a financial perspective? Is it worth the organization's effort to maintain an active presence on social media in order to generate more revenue? Is it possible to use social media metrics such as the number of "likes" and the number of "followers" to predict an organization's "success" even though those metrics are nonfinancial indicators? Prior research studies have looked at how organizations should utilize social media, but few studies have provided strong empirical evidence to support how the outcome of using social media should be measured and why. Focusing on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and YouTube, this book examines how Fortune 500 companies use social media. Collected over a five-year period, the authors assess the companies' social media activities and their business performance data, such as stock return, total revenue, net income, and earnings per share. These data, both financial and nonfinancial, are matched and statistically analyzed to see whether a company's social media activities are significantly associated with its business performance.
