The world has grown very much competitive nowadays. Everywhere you look you would see a lot of different business establishments-some huge, some small. Even individuals have engaged in business-those who call themselves self-employed.
The business world has never stopped expanding since it began. Though this world seemed very common, it is actually very complex. The business world is being run by a lot of things connected. Without these things, the world of business will die out. Of course, manpower is there. A lot of printings such as catalog printing, brochure printing, pamphlets etc. are widely used to promote products and goods. Many services such as mailing services and deliveries are also in. These marketing strategies help the business world, basically, to go around.
It is not necessary to have millions to engage in business; not unless you want to start a business big-time. Starting at the bottom isn’t that bad too; being one of the staffs is already an experience gained for the next bigger step. However, it helps to have a competitive edge to stand out in the sea of common. Like in the world of marketing, through catalog printing and the usage of other promotional materials, one can strategically position a product among the rest. Creative minds and smart plans are very essential to have by anyone who wants to make it in the business world. Strength in the intellectual, physical and emotional is vital too.
To engage in business is to engage in so many things too. To engage in business is to be involved in the affairs of so many other people. To engage in business is to have hands-on experiences of many technological processes and stuffs.
The business world is a world of limited and unlimited things. You will learn a lot of things and a few ideas at the same time. You will know what you do not know in the beginning; and you will use the knowledge eventually to create something new once you end up doing something. It is a complex cycle which offers a lot of ways to reach a desired thing.
The business is also a world of abstract and concrete things. Once you enter this world, your personality will be affected-you will feel different emotions and encounter knowledge. You will also be responsible for man-made creations that are intrinsic vital components of the business world. And you will discover that the business world itself is made up of smaller worlds-the technological world for example. And you will begin to connect your own life to the tons of technological advances.
The business world indeed is a gateway to a lot of other interesting worlds.

National Book Award Finalist—Fiction
It is 1870 and Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings to paying audiences hungry for news of the world. An elderly widower who has lived through three wars and fought in two of them, the captain enjoys his rootless, solitary existence.
In Wichita Falls, he is offered a $50 gold piece to deliver a young orphan to her relatives in San Antonio. Four years earlier, a band of Kiowa raiders killed Johanna’s parents and sister; sparing the little girl, they raised her as one of their own. Recently rescued by the U.S. army, the ten-year-old has once again been torn away from the only home she knows.
Their 400-mile journey south through unsettled territory and unforgiving terrain proves difficult and at times dangerous. Johanna has forgotten the English language, tries to escape at every opportunity, throws away her shoes, and refuses to act “civilized.” Yet as the miles pass, the two lonely survivors tentatively begin to trust each other, forging a bond that marks the difference between life and death in this treacherous land.
Arriving in San Antonio, the reunion is neither happy nor welcome. The captain must hand Johanna over to an aunt and uncle she does not remember—strangers who regard her as an unwanted burden. A respectable man, Captain Kidd is faced with a terrible choice: abandon the girl to her fate or become—in the eyes of the law—a kidnapper himself. Exquisitely rendered and morally complex, News of the World is a brilliant work of historical fiction that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.
An Amazon Best Book of October 2016: I’ll admit, Paulette Jiles’s News of the World was not at the top of my to-read pile. It’s a post-Civil War western, the good guys are good, the bad guys are bad, and you can be sure the former will ride off into the sunset at the story’s end (Womp, Womp). But, what is wrong with that, you say? As it turns out, not a darn thing. Captain Jefferson Kyle is a war-weary widower, traveling from town to town reading relevant bits of news to paying customers. In one such town he is given a $50 dollar gold piece to ferry a kidnapped girl back to what’s left of her family--her parents and sister having been murdered by members of the Kiowa tribe--who spare the then 6-year-old and raise her as one of their own. Fast-forward four years and tribe life is the only life she knows, so she’s not about to go quietly with a stranger who doesn’t speak her language, whose motives she does not trust, and to a place that is not what she now considers home. Thus begins a seemingly ill-advised but transformative road trip where the mismatched pair eventually form and uneasy truce, then a not-so begrudging alliance, and finally something more wonderful that neither Captain nor kid could have imagined. Save for the carnage, this could be a great plot for Disney movie, and there is even a cinematic showdown thrown in for good measure. But in the complex world that we live in, sometimes it’s nice to know who is wearing the white hats, and who is wearing the black hats, and to root for someone who—out of a sense of duty, and later, love--is doing something pure and good. And that’s what News of the World is: Pure and good. --Erin Kodicek, The Amazon Book Review
