Every person working in the corporate world, in business or their own firm always has ambitions to advance their business, their positions and even get promotions to positions of leadership. While this comes about due to great leadership and lots of sacrifice, one other important ingredient is an MBA degree. A master’s degree in business administration is a degree recognized and preferred by many employers. One from a renowned school such as Laurier in Toronto, Canada will give the graduate of this school an edge over others. Laurier MBA offers its students many opportunities, including a part time MBA Toronto study combined with paid work.
Undertaking a course of study at Laurier MBA offers students a wide variety of opportunities regarding their studies.

When the average 2011 college graduate walked towards the faculty member holding their diploma, that fresh grad had $26,600 in student loan debt. While that may not seem like much, if grads chose a standard 10-year repayment plan, they’re going to end up paying a total of $35,000. And since 44% of recent college grads are underemployed, dealing with that amount of debt can be quite stressful. Combine that with the fact that many young people are also carrying other forms of debt like a credit card balance, and it’s easy to see why retirement is one of the last things on their mind.
If you’re in your late teens or your twenties, it’s normal to feel like you have forever before retirement becomes a prominent issue.
In considering small business ownership, to many, the face of the sector could be your smiling local café owner.
And why shouldn’t they be smiling?
According to a September Galaxy Poll, Australian’s thirst for caffeinated products is extraordinary.
Geoff Parker, CEO at the Australian Beverages Council, said that as a population, we are now consuming 1 billion cups of coffee outside the home every year. What’s more, in the 8 year period between 2003-2011, there were nearly 2,000 new café’s established.
With the raw price of coffee having fallen in recent years, and a seemingly boundless national thirst, the numbers would indicate this is a white-hot sector.
Yet John Russell Storey, Brand Standards Manager at Lavazza, says that without question, the question on how much a cup of coffee should actually cost is an emotive one.
“There’s no simple answer either due to the variance in coffee dosages, cup sizes, staff costs etc. From our poin
You know what storage containers are, right? These are things which are only ever used for storing things in. Wrong. In fact, people all over the world have come up with bizarre and interesting uses for these objects. Some of them are even pretty useful as well.
As a Sauna
The idea of a home sauna is pretty tempting but what about getting all hot and steamy instead a storage container? It sounds weird but, well, frankly it is weird and there is no point trying to pretend otherwise. A quick look online will reveal that a storage sauna measuring 8ft by 8ft will set you back about $41,000. This might sound quite expensive but it is made out fully recycled materials and includes such nice features as an iPod stereo, a solar panel to power it and an electric guitar hook up point.

According to CNN, hundreds of thousands of Americans filed for bankruptcy over the course of 2012. Although that may make it seem like the thing to do, the article also explains that at an average cost of $1,500, filing for bankruptcy doesn’t come cheap. And as if that wasn’t enough, going down this route means your credit and related financial health are going to be hurt for anywhere from five to ten years.
Because filing for bankruptcy is a big decision with serious consequences, before you choose that path, let’s go over four alternatives that can help you without creating the same level of fallout as filing for bankruptcy:

Architects lead bike tours of Memphis buildings
Memphis is old enough and big enough to have some of the most outstanding architecture in the South.
But lost over the years has been a widespread knowledge of just why the interesting sights of Midtown look like they do.
So a pair of Sunday-morning bicycle tours hosted by the American Institute of Architects’ Memphis chapter sold out early among the curious who pedaled through the old neighborhoods east of Downtown.
Riding groups set out from Haizlip Studios at 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. bound for 15 different buildings or historic districts along an eight-mile route in Midtown, a section of Memphis developed in the early 20th Century.
On the 9 a.m. excursion, not only were riders armed with a brochure describing the buildings’ significance, but architects Mary Haizlip, the tour organizer, and Valentina Cochran, AIA Memphis president, pedaled along as rolling docents.
In addition, three other architects awaited the cyclists at some of the stops to give five-minute lectures.
