Enterprises TV and How to Survive a Flight Cancellation

There have been nearly 2,220 flights cancelled and more are expected as a massive winter storm moves across the Northeast United States. This affects travelers in the Southeast also since many flights come and go from this region to parts north. Enterprises TV knows what it’s like to be stuck out of town in an airport. Here are some suggestions on how to make the best of it.

If it is not already downloaded on a smart phone, download the airlines apps for alerts.
Ask the airline to give a food and hotel voucher if the flight is expected to be cancelled for more than one night.

  • Find the nearest place to rest and eat with seats where you can charge digital devices. If a laptop is brought along, try charging the device from it.
  • If no hotel voucher is given, visit the nearest shop in the airport and get some provisions for the rest of day and night. We suggest: a travel blanket and pillow, a few bottles of water to stay hydrated, some high protein snacks such as nuts, almonds and cheese crackers, and some fun reading materials. 
  • Camp out in a restaurant and use some time to find alternative flights, a hotel close to the airport, and distress.

Flight cancellations are no fun especially when one wants to get home or to their destination. The Enterprises TV show knows that any delay can be frustrating. We hope these suggestions help readers survive a cancellation with some ease. Travel safely.

Enterprises TV on What To Do if Mistakes are on Credit Reports

Many people check their credit reports once a year. And many find that there are errors made and errors that should have been corrected are still visible Enterprises TV offers some suggestions about how to get mistakes corrected once and for all.

The Federal Trade Commission found that one in five consumers had mistakes on their credit reports. Seventy percent of them found that the mistakes were never corrected despite requesting it.  Most consumers work hard with the reporting credit agency to correct or remove errors. And a small percentage of them give up after two years.

Mistakes can raise interest rates when consumers want to buy a new home or vehicle or apply for a better credit card. The Enterprises TV show suggests not giving up on clearing up any errors. Keep backup files and any communication with credit reporting agencies in order and in a safe place. Double check the reports six months later. Report continuing problems with the business or merchant that reported the item to the FTC. The credit reporting agencies have a responsibility to correct all errors and communicate freely and transparently with every American consumer.  Don’t let them off the hook. Stay on top of each credit agency until the issue is resolved once and for all.

Enterprises TV and How to Stay Focused When Distractions are Abundant

Distractions are abundant in the working world. From phone calls to office visits, it can be challenging to keep on task. Enterprises TV has a few suggestions which might helpful to people who are easily distracted or distracted by others.

Limit the amount of technology used every day. This will reduce the number of devices one has to reply to.

If working in an office with a door, close the door to keep distractions at bay. There will always be people who come in anyway. But the less that happens the more work will be done.

There is a rule that people working in the theater have: leave personal problems outside of the stage door. This rule also works for offices and other places where people are employed, Granted, it is not easy. But it does help one stay focused on the task at hand.

Another thing we at Enterprises TV have learned is that even when there are many distractions throughout the day (email from co-workers, texts from kids, phone calls from schools, etc), it takes a few minutes to become focused again.

Do one task at a time and do it until it is done. Then move on to another task. The work day may be a little easier to manage then.

Enterprises TV on Why Taking Paid Time Off is Important

Recent surveys have found that nearly half of all working Americans do not take a single vacation day every year. There are sound reasons why employees need to take vacation time and Enterprises TV shares what they are.

Hard work and strong work ethic are virtues many workers have. Those who get to work on time, and maybe even a little earlier than the start time, usually begin the day as soon as they sit down. They put in more than 40 hours per week and often are not compensated for the extra time. Some don’t use company paid time off to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. Some use a few days they’ve earned and other none at all. Why is this?

Economists note that stagnant wages are one reason why some working Americans don’t use vacation days. Workers in lower paying jobs such as those in retail or the food and beverage industry are not paid enough to afford a vacation and usually are not given paid time off.  The travel website Skift conducted a survey on vacation time and found that 42 percent of American workers do not take one vacation day all year. Employment site Glassdoor found that some workers use only half the time they earn every year. The main reason is employees feel that no one else can do their job. This is followed by some fearing they will fall behind in their work and worry about possible job loss.

Enterprises TV notes that it is beneficial to take some time off from work, and more so when it is earned as it gives the worker some urgently needed down time. Employees who don’t take time off are at risk of developing stress-related health issues such as high blood pressure, risk of stroke and obesity. Take your paid time off America. Your body and mind need it.

Enterprises TV Shares Report on Where Driving is Most Dangerous

Typical weekday traffic in South Florida

There are some states where driving is dangerous. Other than a percentage of drivers with no insurance, traffic and poor driving habits can make being on the road hazardous. Enterprises TV reviews the five most dangerous places to be a driver.

It is no surprise to us that Florida (where we are located) is rated as the worst state for driving. WalletHub compiled a survey based on several factors including the number of uninsured drivers and the minimum amount of insurance needed to drive. Florida was rated the state most dangerous for drivers since it requires the least amount of insurance and has the most amount of uninsured drivers.  Following the Sunshine State:
  • Oklahoma
  • New Mexico
  • Mississippi
  • California
Most states require insurance before a vehicle can be on the road, and it is illegal in most states to not have any insurance on a vehicle. Enterprises believes that even the minimum amount of insurance is needed to protect oneself and property from a rear-end collision or any other type of accident. Florida has somewhat lax regulations regarding distracted driving including texting while driving. This raises the liability one has to consider when commuting.  To view the results from the entire WalletHub report, click here.

Enterprises TV Reviews Business Translation Services

Business professionals travel the world in their efforts to gain new clients and customers. They spend time on the phone and on the Internet seeking new ventures. With these endeavors, mis-communication can occur. Language barriers can prevent successful transactions. Fortunately, there are great resources available to assist. Enterprises TV looks at a few.

Google Translate on the web is one of the main resources for getting a mostly accurate translation. The tech company also has an app for translation which now can translate two languages at a time. At the moment, the app can adapt from English to French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. The app works even offline in camera mode. Take a photo of what needs to be translated and the app translates it.

Skype, the online video and voice platform, also translates while two parties are connected. Skype is owned by Microsoft which is quickly developing apps to translate more languages on different platforms.

iTranslate Voice allows users to say a word in their language and hear it back in the language they chose for translation via smart phone.

iSpeech Translator for Blackberry works on the iOS, Android and Blackberry platforms. It allows users to speak and translate any words or phrases including email or text in multiple languages. It works well reading restaurant menus and street directions also.

Enterprises wants to know if readers know of any other translation app which works well. Please feel free to let us know.

Enterprises TV Reports on the Improving Confidence of the American Worker

Workers are feeling more confident about pay raises and finding work this year. The job market is looking healthier, and some employees expect a pay raise in the New Year. Enterprises TV reports on the improving confidence of the American worker.

The economy is becoming stronger and as it does, the job market is looking better. This is a positive sign for employees. A recent Glassdoor survey found that one in three employees plan to look for a new job if they do not receive a pay raise, and feel confident they will find better position within six months.  Forty-three percent of the people surveyed said they expect a pay raise in the next 12 months. Roughly half expect the standard three to five percent hike. The Enterprises TV show also learns that more men said they expect a raise than women at 52% and 45% respectively.

Some industry experts feel this is a wake-up call for U.S. employers. Employees are not planning to stick around if the company does not compensate them at the fair market rate. Foreign companies that bought American companies are expected to follow wage trends and at the very least, give staff a cost of living increase.  Competitors are keeping an eye out for the best talent and may poach good workers from an employer that does not give a wage increase.
