350 Followers and More to come!!!!!


350 followers

You know when starting this blog in October of 2011 her heart was not in writing. Of course, there were some obstacles to overcome before she could fully invest her time in writing other articles instead of just writing in her journal. A couple of years had gone by without working on the blog that she first created. It was not until recently in 2013 that she finally took the initiative to write because it makes her feel good. She loves to inspire others with her writing. She did not think that people would read the things that she wrote about and thought that they would not find it that interesting.

Therefore, starting her writing back up again she decided that she would just write for herself and let everything else fall into place. She started out with only 5 followers when she first started and now here in 2014, she is at 350 followers which is a huge experience for her because that means that she has 350 reader’s that she must keep in mind when she is writing. It has turned out to be a wonderful experience and one that she hopes will flourish into something bigger later on in the future. She is happy with the outcome of her newly found hobby and the excitement of having an audience such as this can be overwhelming at first but with time all things come together when they mean too.  

It is an indescribable feeling to log onto your blog and find that people around the world have viewed your materials. Although many do not leave a comment and that is fine it is nice that some people leave some type of comment. It is an inspiration to have this many readers who actually like the things that she writes about and she loves to hear what others have to say.  Sometimes when she writes she does not think that people will enjoy reading that type of article. However, she is surprised when she finally gets a few likes on the article. She knows that you have to publish something every day and sometimes that is hard to do because you do not know what to write about that would peak an interest into the reader. However, she tries to make at least one or two posts because that is the ritual that she needs to have in order to accomplish her goals as a writer.

She hopes that one day she will become an author of a book that she is working on. Although with everything going on in her life with homeschooling, work, writing, and other things she manages to make time for everything that she wants to accomplish in the upcoming years. She loves writing about personal experiences, inspiration, college, and anything else that intrigues her. She looks forward to reading other posts from the people who follow her and enjoys some of the tips, and advice that they have to offer.

Thank you all for following this blog it is gratifying to know that others enjoy the articles that she writes not only for herself but for others as well.

Why We Love College (and You Should Too!)


I know that I have put a lot of time and effort into graduating college with a MBA and I know that one day I will get the job that I went to college for.

beers boys and books

At times you can feel stuck, like you’re paying all this money and putting in all this effort and time for a piece of paper. A piece of paper that means what you will be doing for the rest of your life. That can be a little intimidating. Okay, it can be down right scary. Because how do you know that you’re in the right major? How do you know that you’re even at the right school? When we were kids, we believed we could be anything we wanted. An astronaut, a princess, maybe even a singer (not me LOL). But then we graduated high school and landed in college and the reality of life set in and we soon realized we couldn’t be everything we always wanted. Sometimes we have to settle for a variation of that. But this is life, and you never know what’s coming next, and…

Management


In management, how important is it to learn to use mathematics to solve problems? How valuable is an MBA degree without the ability to identify and calculate the cost of a company’s capital, its return on investment, gross margin percentage, break-even point, or what percent of a population would be willing to buy its product?

Within any business the management team should be able to solve mathematical problems throughout the business. In order to determine if the business has made any type of money the management team would have to calculate the net profit of the business. It is very important to be able to solve mathematical problems and by having a MBA without the mathematics would be a waste of time. Sure many programs out their will do the math for you or the business but how accurate can that be if someone miscalculates the number’s within those programs. Mathematical equations can be used in a variety of ways within the workplace or business.

It is important to be able to solve these mathematical equations so that the business heads in the right direction. Customer’s want to be able to trust the business with their money or other valuable assets. If the customer’s do not trust the business the customer’s are certainly not going to purchase any type of products from your business. Math is used in every part of the business world especially as a manager.

I have been a manager before and some of the math problems were done on a computer but most of the work was done by the manager. By getting the weekly numbers and daily numbers depending on sales. We would have to find the payroll percent and what sales were compared to last year’s numbers.

In business you have to use equations to find the numbers for the amount of sales that you have had for the day. At my current job you have many different things that require equations to find out the percent in sales, food cost, payroll, and operating supplies. For example the food cost is determined by a 24 hour period. If you pull the food that you need for the entire day from a certain period your food cost is determined by the amount of sales that you have for the day.

Say you have for day one 29.9, Day two; 31.4, day three; 35.5, day four; 38.7, day five; 28.9, day six; 27.5, and day seven; 29.9 the food cost percent would be 31.7 for a week. By adding these numbers together and dividing by seven you get the percent of your food cost. Now, your company may be different but many of them have to be under a certain number in order to receive their bonus for that week. The company that she currently works for requires that you have a food cost below 30.0.

Simultaneous equations


Simultaneous equations are a set of equations containing multiple variables. What are two examples of how simultaneous equations are used in business? What are some of the different ways you can satisfy these equations?

When we think about simultaneous equations we find that they are not used just to find the points on any type of given graph that is given to you by your algebra teacher but we can also use the same type of equations within the business world as well as in the classroom. A visualization of the graph is helpful to find the information that is needed and to work the equation out. This will allow the business to see the growth, shrinkage, depletion, losses, and other various business methods that will occur within the company on a regular basis. A company or business might use these types of graphs to see how well a product is doing compared to other products on the same product line. Flow charts and pie graphs help the business to see what is doing the best and what products are not doing anything at all.

Company’s will use this information to forecast scenarios to make sure that the company is going to be a success with those types of products. Keeping track of the trends within the business world is a timely task but it has to be done in order to keep up with the growing trends with the business world today. Information can be another simultaneous equation within the business world because the company can predict what the product or service trends are within the global, local, or any other type of specific market. A company that I worked for would use the sales from last year and try and make it over those sales this year. Sometimes this would work out and sometimes it would not because you do not know how many customer’s are going to come into your establishment today but it is a goal for the business to try and beat and increase sales on any given day. Like all business’s they use these equations to predict the amount of sales that they would be doing.
