Millennials Are Individuals, Not Demographics
Now that we can easily get the information, we love to classify people according to one of the many categories the industry has developed over the years -- Boomers, Millennials, teens, pre-teens; white, Asian, Hispanic, African-American; as well as bosses, us, politicians, honest people. Marketers like to have this information because it makes it possible for them to tailor their messages and pitch stuff to you.

Northview Church Looks to the Future in HD

Emergency Preparedness for Blackout Threats
As a business leader, you are responsible for creating and implementing emergency preparedness plans to protect your business.

At first, preparing for a power outage may not seem daunting - your office will be fine without power for several hours. In fact, you and your employees may even enjoy the time away from work. However, if this blackout continues over a period of several days, weeks, or even months, and if it was caused by severe weather in your nearby area, including tornadoes, hurricanes, or flooding - then it becomes a crisis.
