Most people would think that entrepreneurs end their days like this: When most of the time, it’s probably like this: As a small business owner, you have a lot on your plate. You’re wearing more than one hat and besides your daily hustle, you have to think about your employees’ welfare to keep them happy. Luckily, we live in the 21st century. There are a few HR online platforms designed to replace the old processes so you can focus on building productivity. We were given access to try out one called Swingvy and after dabbling around a bit, these are the 6 features that stood out to us. 1) Combining the HR & payroll system into one platform. It’s not uncommon to find smaller enterprises using different systems for different things. But just like how founders wear many hats, having a pl
Technology has disrupted every industry including healthcare, business, finance and others.

Sizing for women’s clothing can be incredibly frustrating in general (meaningless numbers! vanity sizing! different sizing among brands!), but figuring out how to buy a bra that fits can be even worse. It’s pretty easy to tell if, say, a shirt fits you, but so many of us are wearing the wrong size of bra every day (which we’ve been told ad nauseum). Maybe you’ve lost or gained weight without buying a new one, maybe you feel like your bra fits well enough because you don’t realize you’ve never worn the appropriate size, or maybe you’ve simply given up on buying a size that feels just right. We haven’t specifically talked about how to buy a bra before, although we recently had an open thread about readers’ favorite lingerie for office loo

*image source When the second week of February rolls around each year, Adam and I inevitably look at each other a little bewildered and ask “So… what should we do for Valentine’s Day?” As much as we love going out to dinner, nice restaurants can feel a little cheesy (not to mention crowded and overpriced) on this day of the year, so I’m always on the hunt for unexpected date ideas that will still feel romantic and special. I remember the first year we celebrated Valentine’s Day as a couple, we cooked a really fancy dinner at Adam’s place complete with steak and chocolate soufflés, and it was so memorable that we’ve tried to do something outside the box every year since. Whether you’re coupled up or single (gather your favorite girls!),
Advances in DNA sequencing and AI could make the idea a more practical treatment option.
Do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day? We usually skip the crowded restaurants and make a cozy dinner at home, but it’s still nice to dress up a bit.… Read more The post Which Lipstick Color Would You Choose? appeared first on A Cup of Jo.
