The Retail Giant Wants Its Employees to Become Independent Deliverers Usually, employers want to retain their employees. Many, in fact, will go to great lengths to do just that. But Amazon is actually giving its employees an incentive to leave. The company is not only offering its employees 3 months of salary if they quit and become independent deliverers for the company, but it is also offering them up to $10,000 to cover the costs of starting a new business. The news comes on the heels of Amazon's intention to reduce shipping times for Prime customers to one day, and it is part of an expansion of the company's Delivery Service Partner program. The program includes a slew of benefits, such as training and access to advanced technology as well as discounts on a number of items such as branded vans, uniforms, gas and vehicle insurance. Last year, Amazon indicated…

Seahawks 2019 Draft Class

The Seattle Seahawks have one of the best rosters in the NFL. Last year, the team surprised many people by making the playoffs. The team's general manager wanted to focus on improving specific positions during the 2019 draft. Several years ago, the Seahawks had one of the best secondaries in the league. After multiple veteran players were traded, the Seahawks needed to focus on drafting quality defensive players. L.J. Collier L.J. Collier was drafted in the first round. Collier played at TCU as a defensive end. In college, he played in the same system that the Seahawks use. The team expects Collier to contribute at both defensive end and outside linebacker. At the combine, Collier impressed a lot of scouts with his speed and strength. At TCU, he did an excellent job getting pressure on the quarterback. Marquise Blair Kam Chancellor was one of the best safeties in the NFL…
Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider traded down twice in the first round, and still managed to draft a top player in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The team started with 4 draft picks prior to the draft but ended the night with a total of 9 picks. In 1976, the brand-new Seattle NFL franchise made a pair of defensive players their first two drafted players. Steve Niehaus and Sammy Green each played less than five seasons for the Seahawks. Neither would be considered for any Seahawk wall-of-honor. Seattle certainly hopes their early-round selections in 2019 have more productive careers than this pair of defenders. Seattle has had one first round pick since they took defensive end Bruce Irvin out of West Virginia in 2012. After trading star defensive end Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Seahawks held a pair of first-round selections. Heading into…
Russell Wilson is now the highest paid player in NFL history. This opens the door to shine light on quarterbacks whom have never made this much money before.

A whopping $140 million is coming Wilson's way with $107 million of it guaranteed and a $65 million signing bonus.

Which is great for Seattle Seahawk fans because he says he's always wanted to be in Seattle and has more winning to do for the city. Living The Dream At only 30 years old, Russell Wilson has proven himself as one of the best players since being drafted in 2011. He's been selected to the Pro…

Tiger Wins Masters!

The last time Tiger Woods had won a Major, George W. Bush was the U.S. president. This year’s low amateur at the Masters, Viktor Hovland, was 10 years old at the time. All of which is to say that it’s been nearly a decade and a half since Woods triumphed on golf’s biggest stage. But now Tiger is back, having carded a 13 under to win the 2019 Masters at the age of 43, completing a career comeback which at times seemed impossible. Woods went into the last day of the tournament trailing reigning British Open champion Francesco Molinari by two strokes, and history seemed against Woods, who had never won a Major after trailing through three rounds. Yet Woods battled through a tumultuous final round in which the lead changed multiple times, eventually emerging with a two stroke lead heading into the final two holes. Runner-up Brooks Koepka had…

The Shock & Awe Of PR Stunting

A PR Nightmare or The Golden Goose?. . . The Shock & Awe of PR Stunting. A company's relationship with the public decides its customer base, and while that can decrease or multiply with time, a good way to kick it forward is to increase their public relations in a meaningful way. Food drives for the poor, raffles for hospital drives, or being all the angels on a Christmas tree are great but often slow, rarely generating the buzz to get people talking. And since everyone knows the best advertisement on Earth is word of mouth, they decided to generate that extra buzz by pulling off an entirely unexpected stunt. Stunts are defined as displaying spectacular skill and daring, or something unusual done to attract attention. They exist to make the news, no matter how large or small the impact happens to be, and make those performing into household names.…
