Most people are familiar with Mary Kay, Inc., yet are unfamiliar with the core philosophies and values touted by the woman who founded the company, Mary Kay Ash. Stuever (2001) noted the following concerning Mary Kay and her legacy: Instead of merely telling women they could have it all, cosmetics empress Mary Kay Ash gave it. Via the quasi-religious baptism of a good facial, she liberated hundreds of thousands of women (and a few men) who had not yet seen themselves in an entrepreneurial light (p. C.01). She was more than an entrepreneur; she gave birth to entrepreneurs, literally and figuratively, empowering both women and men to take control of their lives, careers, and futures. Mary Kay Ash’s personal story demonstrates the power of commitment and risk-taking as part of the entrepreneurial spirit.
These stories assist the reader in understanding the serious widespread nature of the issue.

Advantages of ecommerce Having a business open 24/7 I have been asked the discus in detail the impacts and negative impacts of an e-commerce business; I am going to first discus the impacts of an e-commerce business running 24/7. There are many impacts with having an 24/7 e-commerce online business, I first looked at the website tokokoo.com (online) that it mention that the advantage of it being opened 24/7 is that people all over the world can purchase what the e-commerce website is selling, this impacts your business as all parts of the world we be buying your products and services at all times ‘Even while you’re sleeping, your customers can visit your store and browse your products and place their orders’.

Organizational Ethics ETH/316 Peter Fortuna 12/17/14 In this paper I will discuss the ethics of the organization I chose as well as how the ethical principles address the organizational issues, discuss how external social pressure influences organizational ethics, how these issues are relevant to personal and organizational decisions, as well as the relationship between the legal and ethical issues. In the last few years technology has become a big part of society, it only takes seconds of someone posting about a company online for thousands of people to see this information, whether it is bad or good. Due to social media having this big influence on people, organizations are under more pressure to consider what the social expectations will be when making a decision or even what information they put out. Social pressure has increased dramatically for businesses since it has become so much easier for information to spread. One company that is well known as the number one ethical companies is Starbucks.
Thompson suggests that Twitter is a very useful tool. “…I’m more knowledgeable about the details in her life, than the lives of my two sisters in Canada, who I talk to only once every month or so” (Thompson, 2011).

In the beginning Facebook was primitive and the concerns about privacy were abundant which made a lot of Facebook users feel uneasy. Zuckerberg made changes to modernize Facebook by creating a News Feed which gave us easier access to what people were doing.
While being criticized generation because of their overspending, advertisers and marketers target their brands to make sure that they are geared towards these people. While many are enjoying their golden years, Baby Boomers’ buying power is unstoppable. This is even truer when it comes to the use of the Internet. The generation was able to witness the transition between a typewriter to a personal computer, snail mails to e-mails, telephone calls to Facetime, and more. According to Jessica Naziri of USA Today (2015), while the current generation is considered to be more advanced when it comes to the use of technologies, the Baby Boomers are not lagging far behind.
With the abundance use of the internet, information is always at the tip of our fingers ,making it easy for one to borrow ideas or plagiarise. Unfortunately borrowing of ideas or plagiarising does not always mean one is trying to induce their own creative thoughts or ideas, people end up passing these ideas as their own, which becomes academic dishonesty. In my line of business(Marketing communications) I work with a lot of creative people and even if you are well vest in almost everything, you could find yourself sitting with a lawsuit. In 2008 I acquired a new client National Heritage Council(NHC) , they wanted a re-vamp on their corporate identity (CI) which meant brand strategy, brand activation etc. I sat down with my team, we came up with a concept and we got down to work.
Computer-Mediated Communication November 28, 2011 BMG 210 Organizational Behavior Evaluation_____ Computer-Mediated Communication: From Facebook to Twitter, from email to e-meetings, from texting to streaming video, information technology is the driving force behind our personal and business life. Advances in information technology have allowed for the immediate exchange of information across geographical boundaries and times zones once impossible.
