...ingredients in that product, often with detailed ingredient descriptions. Burt's Bees operates under a business model referred to as "The Greater Good," which outlines that all company practices must be socially responsible. To reflect this philosophy, Burt's Bees uses all natural ingredients, engages in environmentally friendly business practices, and extends its humanitarian efforts to the community at large. Originating in Maine in the 1980s, the business began when co-founder Roxanne Quimby started making candles from Burt Shavitz's leftover beeswax. Their attention to quality brought success and eventually led to the bottling and selling of honey, a practice that slowly diminished as the company evolved as a corporation. Eventually, other products using honey and beeswax, including edible spreads and furniture polish, were sold, before moving into the personal care line. In late 2007, the Clorox Company purchased Burt's Bees. ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- Timeline ------------------------------------------------- 1984-1998 * 1984: Burt's Bees originated in Maine as a candle making partnership between Roxanne Quimby and Burt Shavitz in 1984.

Japanese Business Men Avoid Eye Contact During Meetings

...Why do Japanese business men avoid eye contact during business meetings? This is a question that has a simple answer. But there is so much more to the meaning and culture that leads to it. Ever since history shows, the Japanese culture is focused around honor and respect. There are 3 things that are majorly important to know when going to a business meeting with Japanese businessmen. 1. Introduction 2. Business Cards/ Gift exchange 3. Body Language Introduction: Upon the start of a business meeting ( if you are the host ) greet you’re guest(s) with a bow. This is a basic greeting from Japan just as a handshake is in the United States. Then promptly seat them the furthest from the door that you can. Business Cards: Among the Japanese, when businessmen meet each other, business begins with the exchange of business cards (Kumayama, 1991). Business cards are to be given and received with both hands. As well as not being put away right away. Japanese businessmen find it respectful for you to review the card when it is handed to you. Gift Exchange: To receive a gift at a meeting is to be expected. When receiving a gift, stand, bow, and receive the gift with both hands. To remain seated and accept the gift with one hand is considered disrespectful. The Japanese may feel as if you pay no value to the fact that they brought you a gift (Kumayama, 1991). Body Language: There are a few do’s and don’ts when it comes to, what may seem normal things, do at a meeting. Small things......

...incurred by business travel have been steadily rising in recent years, primarily due to increasing energy costs. In an effort to reduce travel expenses, many companies, both large and small, are using videoconferencing and Web conferencing technologies. A June 2008 report issued by the Global e-Sustainability Initiative and the Climate Group estimated that up to 20 percent of business travel could be replaced by virtual meeting technology. A videoconference allows individuals at two or more locations to communicate through two-way video and audio transmissions at the same time. The critical feature of videoconferencing is the digital compression of audio and video streams by a device called a codec. Those streams are then divided into packets and transmitted over a network or the Internet. The technology has been plagued by poor audio and video performance in the past, usually related to the speed at which the streams were transmitted, and its cost was prohibitively high for all but the largest and most powerful corpora- tions. Most companies deemed videoconferencing as a poor substitute for face-to-face meetings. However, vast improvements in videoconferenc- ing and associated technologies have renewed interest in this way of working. Videoconferencing is now growing at an annual rate of 30 percent. Proponents of the technology claim that it does more than simply reduce costs. It allows for 'better' meetings as well:......

...GUIDELINES FOR PREPARING PROJECTED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Before entering into the nitty-gritty of the precautions to be taken by the professionals, first of all, I would like to throw some lights on the definitions of the basics of the Projected Financial Statements: WHAT IS FINANCIAL FORECASTS AND PROJECTIONS? Financial forecasts and projections are two types of prospective financial statements that attempt to reflect a company’s expected financial position and expected results of operations. FINANCIAL FORECAST A financial forecast reflects, to the best of the company’s knowledge, the expected financial results of a future period. It is based on expected conditions and expected courses of action. It is to be noted that in almost all situations, the party responsible for the prospective financial statements is the management of the company. FINANCIAL PROJECTIONS A financial projection is different than a forecast in that it is based on hypothetical assumptions. A projection reflects the financial position and results of operations based on a “What if” type of scenario. It is to be noted that only a financial forecast is appropriate for general use. Now, I would like to touch upon those areas, which needs to be taken care of and needs some fine-tuning before accepting any assignment of preparing/compiling of projected financial statements. PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN BY THE PROFESSIONALS BEFORE COMPILING PROJECTED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 1. Make sure that...
