    Larkin Express Logistics is the new business on the block in Buffalo’s Allentown neighborhood. “We find trucks for people that need to move stuff,” explained company co-founder Don De Laria. The company opened earlier this year and it's already made $300,000 in revenue. Right now, the company has room to grow at the office space on Delaware Avenue. But, the goal is to expand beyond these walls in three years’ time. “We have designs to take this to a $125 million company in five to seven years. But, first De Laria said it needs to build a strong, and motivated...
  • Kanye West’s Trump Support Didn’t Hurt His Album Sales

    All of the attention Kanye West has received over the past two months for his public show of support for President Donald Trump has not had any negative impact on his career (for those who think it had, or should have, or must have). Although many in the music industry (and the mainstream media) attacked the rapper, he actually made history, thanks to the success of his latest album, “Ye.” The album has about sold over 200,000 copies and marks West’s eighth consecutive No. 1 album on Billboard’s top 200. In other words, every single one of his albums to...

    Dick’s Sporting Goods has suffered a surprisingly steep downturn in sales since promising to sell fewer guns, but the problem isn’t the gun sales, Fortune says. Stock tumbled to the lowest in four months after the sports store banned assault-style weapons from its Field & Stream stores and raised the minimum age for a customer to buy a firearm from 18 to 21.... “There’s going to be some pushback and we expected that,” said CEO Edward Stack, in an earnings call with Wall Street analysts, according to CNN. “There are going to be the people who don’t shop us anymore...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Francis of Sales, Bishop, Confessor, and Doctor of the Church (Gueranger)

    01/28/2018 9:33:13 PM PST · by CMRosary
    White Double THE ANGELICAL BISHOP Francis of Sales has a right to a distinguished position near the Crib of Jesus, on account of the sweetness of his virtues, the child-like simplicity of his heart, and the humility and tenderness of his love. He comes with the luster of his glorious conquests upon him—seventy-two thousand heretics converted to the Church by the ardor of his charity; an Order of holy servants of God, which he founded; and countless thousands of souls trained to piety by his prudent and persuasive words and writings. God gave him to his Church at the...
  • Supreme Court to Consider Internet Sales Tax Collection

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | January 12, 2018 | Brent Kendall and Richard Rubin
    The Supreme Court on Friday said it would consider whether states can broadly require online retailers to collect sales taxes even if they lack a physical presence in the state, taking a case that could have a major impact on online commerce. The justices on Friday took up that call, explicitly agreeing to consider whether the earlier high-court precedent should be overruled. “My bet is that they are looking at it to overturn,” said Edward Zelinsky, a tax-law professor at Yeshiva University’s Cardozo School of Law. The alternative, he said, would be to point to this issue as an example...

    """TRUMP EFFECT: RECORD HOLIDAY SALES NEAR $600 BILLION; Expert: Spending Pace Not Seen Since Great Recession"""" Retailers are reporting record holiday sales this season of $598 billion as of Christmas Eve, fueled by confidence in the pro-business, pro-jobs economic polices of President Donald Trump of cutting Obama-era regulations and enacting major tax cuts and reforms. Yet media reports by CBS, AP and the Wall Street Journal all failed to mention President Trump in their reports on the record sales. The Drudge Report however is leading Monday night with a photo and headline crediting Trump with the boom in sales over...

    When it comes to TV ratings, the National Football League needs a Hail Mary. Average game viewership has fallen to 15 million this season, down from 16.5 million last year, and the lowest since 2008, according to data compiled by RBC Capital Markets. The firm also finds that the league's audience is down on a year-over-year basis, and notes that it hasn't seen meaningful growth since 2013, when the measure climbed 5%. RBC says this has had an adverse effect on how advertisers view the prospect of buying time slots during NFL games. "The sustained decline is what worries investors...

    As marijuana legalization continues across the country, weed is becoming increasingly mainstream. However, as much as the stoner stereotype has evolved into a broader label that also encompasses CEOs, educated millennials, and the Spicolis of the world, it still has a negative connotation. Industry leaders have quickly learned that destigmatizing marijuana use begins with educating the public, but Adrian Sedlin of Canndescent has figured out that, as with anything, it's really all about branding. Sedlin's luxury cannabis company offers premium flower alongside sophisticated packaging that no other company in the current market rivals. One look and I can almost guarantee...

    “Licensed to Lie” is a soul crusher of a book that in very naked terms exposes the ugly corruption the we see in the Department of Justice. This book, written in 2014, will destroy any faith you have left in the American justice system, for the ending is not happy. You will weep for your country as a horde of “arrogant, narcissistic, overzealous, ignorant, corrupt” federal prosecutors suborn perjury, withhold evidence, threaten citizens, extort witnesses through solitary confinement, harass families, knowingly send innocent people to prison, and lie with every breath, with no one to stop their crime wave, except...

    “Used Car Salesman.” The moment you read those words, what do you see in your mind’s eye? Probably a hyper-enthusiastic, slick-tongued guy in a cheap suit who’s more than happy to overpromise and underdeliver while doing his best to hide the fine print. It’s easy to imagine, isn’t it? The Used Car Sales profession has become synonymous with dangerously unethical persuasive tactics. As the Owner and Founder of businesses in several industries -- from Integrated Systems to Family Restaurants to Car Washes -- I network with other Entrepreneurs on a regular basis.

    The troubles continue for cereal giant Kellogg’s as it announced layoffs of more than 400 Texans working in company distribution centers this summer. In this latest round of layoffs, 421 employees will lose their jobs in two Texas distribution centers–201 in Fort Worth and 220 in Houston. Part of a larger ongoing cost-cutting measure, the cereal manufacturer told the Texas Workforce Commission it plans to cut most of the affected staff between July 29 and August 17, according to The Dallas Morning News. In February, the beleaguered Kellogg Company announced it intended to axe around 1,100 jobs from payroll nationwide,...

Well, now there’s a new way to reconnect with the hoi polloi: Buy a pair of $425 jeans that promise to show “you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.” Luxury fashion retailer Nordstrom was previously best known for dropping Ivanka Trump’s brand back in February—unofficially out of political spite, officially because of declining sales. The company is now desperate to ruin its own brand further by selling a pair of working class-inspired pants, so that...

    Recently, much has been made of the role that artificial intelligence will play in taking our jobs. From manufacturing to driving to fighting wars, AI’s ascendancy into the workforce elicits everything from celebration to consternation. Depending on who you ask, AI will save jobs, or create jobs, or will banish humans from the job market forever. While the singularity is a long way off, the anxiety has set in. Salespeople are nervous, too. A million business-to-business salespeople are already in danger of losing their jobs to websites by 2020, according to Forrester. The basic sales jobs are already migrating to...
