6th Point to Consider on How to Choose the Right Home Business: Corporate Social Responsibility

It is a well-known fact that ‘what goes around, comes around’. It is very important to know how your company is giving back to society. Are they giving in nature? Do they believe in contributing to society for a brighter future?

The sixth point to consider when choosing the right home business for you is Corporate Social Responsibility. It is very important to know this because this will give you a square idea on the company’s philosophy and mission. The answer to this will give you an insight into the management’s vision and goals.

Some points that you may want to do your due diligence on are:

1. Does the company give back to society? If yes, in what ways? Do they support charitable causes, either locally or globally? It can be social, environmental or something else. As long as they believe in giving before receiving, you are in the right place.

2. How does the company use its profits? Does it put back some of its profits to grow your business by giving you better education? Does it use part of it to benefit society? Or does all profit go in the owner’s pocket?

3. What is your company doing to benefit the future generation? I have known companies who sponsor children’s education. Some very successful companies donate to healthcare programs in underprivileged nations. What is your company doing in these regards?

The answers to the above questions will give you enough idea about the company’s outlook and business style. If the answers are favorable, then you are in the right place.

Good Luck with your endeavor and I wish you all the best.

Quickest Way to Lose Weight for the Busy Corporate Professional

As a busy corporate professional, we are often in a rush; moving from appointment to appointment and rushing deadline after deadline. For most of us, exercising is the least of our concerns. The fact is, many of us are just too worn out after a long day at work to trudge our way to the gym for a decent workout.

For those who do make it to the gym, chances are they are not fully optimizing their workout time by performing the exercises that matter. So in this article, I will show you the quickest way to lose weight so you can get the best results in the shortest time. Exercises are generally categorized into two types: isolation and compound.

Isolation exercises:

Like the name suggests, isolation exercises are single joint exercises that isolate a particular muscle group. Examples of isolation exercises are bicep curls, triceps extension, leg extension and lateral shoulder raises.

Compound exercises:

These are multi-joint exercises that works multiple muscle groups at the same time. Examples of compound exercises include bent over rows, bench press, push ups, squats, dips, chin ups and dead lifts.

If your goal is to shed pounds and burn calories, then the quickest way to lose weight and fully optimize your workout time is to solely focus on just compound exercises. The nature of compound exercises require more work from your body and as such, it has a better calorie expenditure per exercise ratio. For example, let’s compare two leg exercises:

  1. Leg extensions: isolation exercise
  2. Barbell squats: compound exercise

When performing leg extensions, the only muscle groups worked are primarily your thighs (quadriceps) and a little of your calves. Barbell squats on the other hand, activates not only your thighs, but also your hamstrings, calves, lower back, abs and buttocks! (So this one single exercise effectively targets all problem areas that most ladies are concerned with).

Assuming that we spend the same amount of time performing both exercises, the barbell squats definitely burns more calories and it even targets multiple muscle groups at once saving you time to exercise other body parts. So next time if you are in a rush and are looking for the quickest way to lose weight, pick only compound exercises and you will soon see and feel the difference.
