As managers, how many times have we told ourselves: “I am just too busy! I don’t have time for this!” Let me assure you that we have all been there. Time management is not about always being available for everyone else; it is about making the most effective use of your time for others when you have it. Believe it or not, you have more time than you think.
Strategic delegation is a management practice that focuses on the prioritization of managerial tasks vs. employee tasks while providing the right opportunities and time for critical thinking, coaching, and mentoring employees for better growth. I like to say: “Leaders need to stop fighting the daily fires all the time and start learning to become ‘Smokey the Bear.’” This means that when we practice strategic delegation, we are not only looking to solve a quick problem for today, but to also eliminate, reduce, or control the size of the problem in the future.
As the world of work continues to evolve, so does the way we manage and engage employees. No longer are businesses limited to workers who live near the office; now, thanks to advances in technology, businesses can hire employees from anywhere in the world. This has led to a rise in virtual employees—workers who complete their duties from home or another remote location. So, how can organizations increase virtual employee engagement, productivity, and collaboration? We've put together 7 of our best tips!

I'm taking the time to write an email of gratitude regarding a recent VMWARE ESXI 7.0 course I completed under the tutelage of Mr. Karnis.
For the malicious actors who perpetuate cybercrimes, it’s generally a “numbers game.” If they try widespread, indiscriminate attacks on all types of businesses, at least one will surely succeed. Unfortunately, this means there’s no such thing as a business being small enough to escape targeting.
In fact, it’s stated in the Verizon 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report that small businesses are often targeted at high rates because of their size. The logic follows that they have fewer resources for cybersecurity and training and are therefore easier to breach.
An oft-repeated mantra in cybersecurity is that it’s a matter of when a business will be attacked, not if. So, how can small businesses protect themselves? Today, we’re breaking down the current state of small business cybersecurity and some of the best tips to implement for your venture.
