Sewell Direct Mos Pack

2017 gift guideThe Sewell Direct Mos Pack carries all of your electronic devices in an organized fashion. It is the backpack that allows you to plug in to charge your laptop, tablet, and more. The charging mechanic of the backpack didn't seem to be that useful at first but after a bit of adjusting it was convenient and quick for me to unload my laptop and begin work. The one thing I want to have seen was the ability to have the charge stay stationary since it was sitting in an uncomfortable position in the bag, additionally, I had a protector on my laptop making it unable to fit into the dedicated pocket for the laptop. With its durable and rigid designs, I can safely say it could protect my laptop and with all the custom navigation with all the wires I had, the organization was easy. Especially the top pocket, which held my most used items and was quick to access most importantly.

Choetech Qi Charger

Judge me., One of the leading selling factors for me was the wireless charging. I never knew I needed the wireless charge, until using it. At my office desk I have the core nerd essentials, funky pop toys, legos, computer stand, keyboard, and my Choetech charger. I use the wireless charger primarily in the office and can grab my phone and go as I wish.I decided to go a step further and take the charger home with me. I placed it on my nightstand and in order to indicate if my phone is charging, you are met with a rather dim light. Contrary to their competitor product, ROCK qi charger which has an extremely “loud” light that turns an entire darkroom light.After leaving the phone on the charger overnight, I did notice my phone was considerably hot. Not drastic, but it was indeed warm to the touch. I found with this product, it’s best to use the device in an office setting that promotes the use of place and grabs.

2017 gift guideIncase contains various technology products that are subdue. This is by far the best case for any magic pro users. Upon opening the case, you immediately see the foam casing that will secure the magic pro, controller, extra battery, and various items in it’s case. The foam casing layout alone is enough to already win as best in class, but not to mention there is additional space to store things like extra propellers, entire charging unit, and more than likely a third battery (I did not try this personally)The overall weight of the case was light and can easily fit on any carry on/check-in luggage or backpack. Upon testing, I accidentally dropped the incase carrying case and the magic was still securely tucked away, unscathed without a scratch.

If you are running a business, you must insure it. You should understand what kind of insurance coverage you need for your enterprise. If you have a consulting business, having a proper error and omissions (E&O) insurance is important. You should purchase a general liability insurance if you want to take the lease of a building. Small businesses have a lot of things to protect.



Property Insurance coverage

You have tangible things to protect, such as machinery, merchandise, etc. There can be natural calamities like flood or earthquake. There can be major fire accidents. A fire can destroy all the machinery, and you need a replacement. The insurance should specify in clear terms that how much coverage they will provide in case of any accidents. In general cases, the property insurance covers business building along with inventories, furnishings, etc. It can also provide coverage to equipment breakdowns and the cost of removing debris.

General Liability coverage

You must purchase a general liability insurance for your enterprise. This insurance covers your products, completed operations of the company and premises operations. If you rent a building and one of your employees falls, you will be covered. If you are into a restaurant business and someone gets food poisoning, you will be covered.

E&O insurance

This insurance is also called the professional liability insurance. It is important for the people who are in the consulting business. If your consultation does not meet your client’s requirement and your client sue you, you will be covered by the legal fees and defense costs.

Worker’s compensation insurance

Step Away From The Office To Boost Creativity

Published

on

innovative creativity

We have all faced a situation where we came across a mental block. We try to come up with an innovative idea or try to solve a problem, but that just does not happen. Hours of hard work at the office, meetings, or even dedicated effort in your office cubicle has led to no real positive outcomes. Then, after all that effort and frustration, you decide to take a break, go out of the office for a meal or drink, watch your favorite movie, or even choose to take a nap. Suddenly, creativity hits you, and everything falls into place as a result of which you see a clear solution to the problem lying in front of you. This “Eureka” moment solves all your problems in a jiffy.



The main reason behind this is that if you always focus excessively on the task that is given to you, then your brain won’t be able to come up with interesting and unique solutions to your problems using the information stored in your memory. By taking a break from your routine (in the form of a walk, drink, or a nap), your brain is given the freedom to explore and search for possible solutions. So, whenever there is a problem which needs to be solved, let your gray cells relax and concentrate on the task at hand.

Some of the reasons why you should take a break from your monotonous office life are:

It improves your creativity to a large extent

Whenever you realize that your creativity is not flowing out, you should definitely take a break and move out of your office premises. One of the best ways to be inspired and remove your creativity block would be to visit some new location. So, whenever you are unable to come up with any solution, having a meal outside could be one of the best options.

It is profitable for the business

If you leave your office due to a creative block, then coming back with a fresh chain of thought will definitely boost your productivity. This, in turn, proves to be very beneficial for the business you are working for. You can also easily tag your meal as a business expense which would make sure that your bottom line is always healthy.

It is the best way to know your peers

While you are working hard for eight hours in your office 5 days a week, it might take a toll on your health as well as your working relationships. Spending some time with your co-workers and getting to know them better away from all the work related stress will be beneficial for your mind as well as the body. One of the best ways of doing so would be by socializing outside your office. This would result in the development of new relationships and friendship and at the same time reducing your stress and refreshing your mind.
