Business Credit Card Resources

Posted: September 21st, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Resources | No Comments »

Here is an interesting list of business credit card resources. I have found that some business credit cards give a decent amount of discounts on items from ink for my printer to hotel and car rental. I use American Express for my business credit card, but I tend to find out that not all places take this card, especially small shops and restaurants. I would also look at rewards these cards offer, some will offer mileage rewards for flights and some will offer cash back.

Bureau of Labor Statistics — Graphic Designers

Posted: January 27th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Business, Resources | No Comments »

I was surfing the Internet and ran across this link to the Bureau of Labor Statistics about graphic designers. Interesting read, but I was mostly looking at how low the average designer really gets paid as well as the growth of our industry, not much has changed over the years.

I sometimes feel we are part of a slave labor force, always on, always providing and always expected of immediate delivery and immediate client satisfaction (you should all know this, every client seems to think we have an easy button on our keyboard). I have been a graphic designer for over 22 years and the pay pretty much has stayed the same all these years with some growth in salary, but not by much.
