Billionaire Marketer
by Esther Smith

(The) Donald Trump is an excellent example of American entrepreneurism in its most colorful form. Synonymous with New York real estate, beautiful women, bad hair, 90-story ego, distaste for dishonesty, and a clear killer-instinct in the business world, Trump also knows how to use people to make money for him.

You're hired, the apprentice walked in an entrepreneur and walked away a winner
by April Y. Pennington

After 13 riveting weeks, Donald Trump made his final decision and chose entrepreneur Bill Rancic as "The Apprentice" Rancic, 33, who nine years ago started Cigars Around the World.com, an online purveyor of premium cigars (which he sold in 2003), has also run real estate development company Rancic Properties for the past three years. Now he will oversee construction of the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago. I caught up with Rancic only days after the announcement to learn more about his thrilling victory.

by Jon Kogan

Many people want money as a primary goal. And there certainly is nothing wrong with desiring money. But first, be sure that your true goal is money. Can you live, breathe, eat, and sleep money? Do you dream about money, and want it more than anything?

6 Ways to Support Another Woman
by Yolanda Shoshana

Every Thursday, I have been glued to the hit television show, 'The Apprentice". It is drama at it's finest, except there is something that is painful for me to watch as a woman. When the show began the women dominated and worked together as a team. As time progressed the women slowly but quickly began to rip each other apart and then... there were none, leaving two men standing for the high profile position to work for Donald Trump. The "catfights" between the women have continued and are clearly evident as they make media rounds. Meanwhile, Kwame and Troy had a small show down only to be followed with words of loyalty and strong hugs and handshakes. When will women learn to stick together through the good, bad, and the ugly?

A Lesson From The Apprentice That Can Make You A Master
Karon Thackston

I have to admit, I was curious. When I saw previews of a new show called “The Apprentice,” it made me want to at least watch the premiere to see what was going on. Immediately, I was hooked. The whole idea of candidates - from all walks of life, not just college grads fresh from their commencement ceremonies - vying for a position in one of Donald Trump’s organizations piqued my interest.

Is The Apprentice Bad For Your Health
by Angie Dixon

If you know who I mean when I say Kwame, Bill and Troy, you’re probably a fan of The Apprentice. I admit I’m not a fan myself; I don’t watch much television and that particular show didn’t grab my interest enough to be “appointment” watching. I have, however, followed its popularity with interest, for various reasons.

Business is Business The World Over
by Colin Watkins BSc

If you are already in business it is hardly likely that you will agree with my title. Aren't all businsesses different? When you think in broader terms, yes, of course you're right. I want you, however, to look , for the moment, only at the basics. All businesses are about turnover, profit margins and overheads. Basically that is all there is to it. All three must come together in perfect harmony for a business to succeed.

Staying Sane While Wall Street Crashes
by David Leonhardt a.k.a. The Happy Guy

Everybody is riding the Wall Street Roller coaster. Even if you are not invested, the headlines scream out one word: PANIC! It's hard not to join in the panicking. The Panic Crowd seems to be having all the fun these days. But they don't have all the happiness. You see, it's true what your mother told you: money doesn't buy happiness, at least not for most people. But the lack of money does buy pure misery.
