Three Hacks to Gain Self-Confidence
Startup Today Magazine
August 24, 2022
Self-confidence is a complex category that often predominately plays a role in our professional and personal success and happiness.

The way we see and evaluate ourselves and our capabilities does not often lead to the steps we should take to pursue the goals dear to our hearts. The level of confidence we have will show us the level of trust we have in ourselves and our actions. If the belief in ourselves is shaken, then the results we’ll get will reflect that image.

Organic agriculture as socially responsible business
Megatrend Review Vol 12 No 13
December 09, 2015
For decades, the modern world is faced with the need for global, shared responsibility for the development, which is in accordance with the needs of people and nature. Every day, the business community is challenged to be more responsible and sustainable. There is a need for continuous work on the integration of economic, social, and environmental aspects. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not an additional element of business activity, but it's an essential and inseparable component, which will be shown in this paper. Organic agriculture in the world is seen as a good tool for the preservation of the environment, and the concept is coherent with CSR. The system of production of organic food must be in sync with the numerous qualitative and quantitative requirements of environmental protection. Organic agriculture can represent a decisive factor in the development of Serbia, but in this area, there is a necessity for more investment, especially in education and the development of existing capacities. Game theory with its models and conclusions ought to provide sustenance to this topic in business and academic research. In this paper, game theory and its models show that investment in organic production as a socially responsible business generates value. By combining producers and processors in the group, additional economic benefits can be achieved, not only for the group but also for the entire business in which the group operates. The paper is based on the models of Arya and Mittendorf (2006) and Goering (2012), so it represents their combination and therefore the extended version.

Extrovert Vs Ambivert Vs Introvert – 10 Speakers and their Guide to Confidence
Global Woman Magazine
March 18, 2022
When we picture an extrovert, our mind instantaneously paints a sociable, loud, and life of the party persona, but does extrovert equal confidence? For some of us, confidence is an innate trait, for others, it requires a bit more work. Some will hesitate to take on a social task, some will take the opportunity, and others will thrive in that environment.

Does confidence waver over the spectrum of extrovert to introvert? Stepping on stage, mic in hand requires an impressive amount of confidence and self-belief. We spoke to 10 international speakers as they answer the burning question ‘can introverts be confident?’ with a glimpse into their journey and their guide to confidence.

2022 Predictions for Digital Marketing

Date : November 23, 2021

The drive of digital marketing in 2022 will be about authentic communications and genuine human connections!
Even though digital marketing can be understood as B2B or B2C, today, it effectively emerged to H2H since behind every customer, enterprise, or organization, there is an individual with personal characteristics. Despite the rise of artificial intelligence, human empathy and emotional intelligence are the traits that will stick and cannot be easily replaced. According to contemporary research, people are hardwired to emotional sync. Today, the digital world is craving to connect emotionally and build strong, genuine relationships based on empathy. Therefore, 2022 digital marketing will be all about human-to-human connection. Consequently, authentic communication will be fundamental, driving the trustworthiness, integrity, and loyalty that customers- humans highly value in the digital world.
