How to Survive an Unexpected Promotion

Getting an unexpected promotion can be thrilling. A larger salary, increased status and expanded opportunities often go hand-in-hand with a new promotion. But there’s much more to it than that.

Here are some tips on how to survive an unexpected promotion. 

Set Goals

Teaching Teenagers about Business

Teaching teenagers about business equips an upcoming generation with viable job skills that they’ll need to support themselves. Hands-on, real-life experiences can also spark creativity and a renewed interest in related classroom skills and subjects. Learning about business can also give high school students a much-needed sense of worth and ownership during their formative years. 

Why Teach Kids Business Skills?

Some kids are great at abstract thinking. All they need to do is read their textbook and everything clicks into place. For others, it takes practical experience for the puzzle pieces to fall into place. Business training for teens can bridge that gap.
