The King is Coming Home: The Cavaliers Rebuild

Akron, Ohio, native LeBron James announced recently that he will be returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers next season. He was selected as the number one pick in the 2003 NBA draft by the Cavs out of St. Vincent-St. Mary’s High school. In just 4 years, he led Cleveland to the NBA finals for the first time ever. Ironically, they lost to the San Antonio Spurs, which beat the Miami Heat in this year’s championship. This new deal is reportedly for 2 years at $42.1 million.  

The Fallout in 2010

There was a tremendous fall out when Cleveland’s native son left the Cavs to join superstars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. This devastated a city of diehard sports fans that had spent years watching the disappointing Cavs, Browns and Indians. When LeBron left in 2010, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert released a letter on the team’s webpage calling his departure to Miami “heartless and callous.” The letter has remained there for the past 4 seasons, but was recently removed when there were rumors that LeBron might return.

How to Manage Stress in the Workplace

Many people experience work-related stress from time to time. An overabundance of stress can have a negative effect on the body and mind. Left unmanaged, stress can make you unproductive and unable to focus on the things that are important, both at work and at home. Severe, ongoing cases of excessive stress may even lead to a host of medical conditions, including migraine headaches, ulcers, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure and heart disease. Instead of letting work frustrations overcome you, try these techniques to reduce work-related stress and begin to reclaim your life. 

Recognize the Symptoms

Sometimes it’s possible to be stressed without even realizing it. Perhaps you’ve been feeling out of sorts, but can’t figure out exactly why.

Ignoring the warning signs of stress can lead to a myriad of health issues. For this reason, it’s important to know the signs and symptoms of excessive stress. Here’s a list of warning signs to be aware of.

Why Your Business Needs a Newsletter

In today’s digital climate, many businesses are starting to wonder if they should opt out of their newsletters. Some believe that social networking alone is enough to reach clients. However, this can be a mistake, as there are numerous benefits to newsletter marketing. Here’s a look at why your business needs a newsletter.

The Benefits

A company newsletter is a powerful tool with the potential to boost sales, strengthen loyalty, and increase brand awareness. While social media can also be used towards those ends, it is a completely different tool in your arsenal. This is becoming increasingly important, because as algorithms change, direct marketing through these sites may turn out to be more difficult for some small businesses. The newsletter is about delivering specific content to consumers who want to hear from you. It is also delivered directly to the inbox or mailbox of your customer.
