NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Well-planned financial goals, whether they’re for the next week or 5 years from now, are integral to a person’s financial growth. These goals are what drive us to make savings plans, budget, and investment strategies in order to reach them. Without a proper plan in place, achieving these goals is nearly impossible. This is especially true when it comes to retirement planning. Zoe Financial understands that a comfortable retirement is one of the top financial goals a person will have in their lifetime.

Everyone’s retirement plan will differ depending on their financial situation, age, and goals. For instance, retirement planning for small business owners will be much different than employees of big corporations. Since business owners won’t have as much access to traditional retirement accounts, they should familiarize themselves with the different options available. It’s essential to choose the retirement

A landmark judgment given on August 11, 2020 by a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court addressed a key aspect in gender inequality. The court held that daughters would have equal coparcenary rights in Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) properties even if they were born before the 2005 amendment to the Hindu Succession Act, 1956. Justice Arun Mishra’s words: Daughters have to be given equal share of coparcenary rights in the share of property like the son, hammered out all the ambiguity around the previous amendment done in 2005. It granted equal rights to daughters in the inheritance of ancestral property with retrospective and retroactive effect. The daughters are entitled to equal share in HUF properties even if their father has died before the amendment of the Act in 2005.

The only exception to this rule is the HUF partitions that took place before the cut-off date of December 20, 2004.

For decades very few companies saw supporting their workers’ health and well-being as a business priority. They did what was necessary by law to create a safe and healthy work environment. But exercising, good nutrition, and engaging in self-care to boost physical, mental and emotional health — these were pursuits for employees to worry about and manage on their own time.

However, that attitude eventually evolved as it became harder for employers to ignore the connection between unhealthy behaviors — such as sitting hunched over a desk and staring at a computer for hours on end — and lower employee productivity, decreased morale and higher absenteeism. These, in addition to rising healthcare costs, prompted employers to start promoting workers’ overall wellness.

Many businesses have expanded their efforts in recent years as they have sought to position themselves as an

The Chicago Cubs laid off about 25% of their business staff on Thursday because of a loss in revenue and in anticipation of an uncertain 2021, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN.

The move follows a significant round of cuts on the baseball side in August.

Based on advice from medical experts, as well as restrictions because of local ordinances, the Cubs are not expecting full capacity inside Wrigley Field at the beginning of next season.

It’s possible only season-ticket holders will be allowed to attend games. They’ll get first priority as they make up about 50% of overall ticket holders, which is about the same capacity the team is expecting to allow inside the stadium.

The Cubs expect to miss out on about 75% of their revenue in 2020,

As I discussed in Part 1 of this series, leaders are slowly emerging from a business paralysis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and determining what their next business norms will be.

MORRIS — The Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday resumed its discussion of outdoor concerts held at South Farms, but did not act on concerns neighboring property owners have expressed about noise the events are producing.

Instead, commission Chairman David Wiig will send a letter to South Farms owner Ben Paletsky listing issues the commission wants addressed as it tries to work toward a resolution acceptable to Paletsky and the residents who are saying the concerts are affecting their quality of life.

“(Paletsky) can respond and then we can take action,” Wiig said.

Issues Wiig said he’ll list in the letter are noise, traffic, loitering, lighting, inappropriate content, and hours and frequency of the concerts.

South Farms in East Morris is hosting the Twilight Concerts on The Farm series. The series began Aug. 22 and is scheduled to run through the end of October, with concerts held on weeknights and

Retirement is occurring at an unprecedented pace. Baby boomers have already been retiring in droves for the last several years, but compounding this demographic trend are the challenges created by the Covid-19 pandemic. For many individuals either at retirement or near-retirement age, unemployment has translated into permanent retirement. And, many of those working in essential industries such as teaching are voluntarily electing early retirement over exposure to the virus.  

With retirement under more pressure than ever before, how prepared and knowledgeable are Americans today? Based on one of the most comprehensive surveys of retirement income literacy ever conducted, the answer is that while many are confident they know what they need to know, a sizable majority of retirees and pre-retirees still fail to understand the basics of retirement.

When the first public Web page was launched on August 6, 1991 by Berners-Lee, no one ever thought that the Internet would be considered as a fundamental right in some countries. The reason is quite obvious, now we eat, live and breathe the Internet. When it comes to business, back then the idea of using the Internet to scale their businesses was yet to be sown. However, now most of the businesses are relying on the Internet to stay afloat and serve customers.

While it is true that the Internet has jumpstarted multiple businesses, lack of demand forecasting, disarrayed supply-chain management and poor business planning solutions have resulted in manufacturers losing their grip over the market in this age of cut-throat competition. 

Understanding the importance of integrated business planning and the dire need of
