How is work like a trapeze act?
According to this 1926 motivational poster, the higher you go, the better. Why—were you thinking of another parallel? Something about a high wire act?

Whoo! I have been through all these situations and boy oh boy did I learn a lot! The same happens for many businesses. You learn a lot about the culture, structure and community impact by experiencing these situations. -🤔How can a business experience heart break?🤔💔

-A perfect example is "New! Coke" launched in 1985. #cocacola thought it was a great idea but the people they served spoke loud and clear 🚫🙅🏾‍♀️. They started pulling the product off the shelf in 3 months and re-introduced "Coke Classic." This is a #businessheartbreak but Coca-Cola showed that they had enough resilience to bounce back. -⁉️What was your biggest learning experience while in business? Comment below ⬇️⬇️

Football season might be over, that doesn't mean the football metaphors need to stop. This 1926 motivational poster encouraged workers to always be ready–you never know when you're going to be called from the sidelines.

Here are the founding fathers: Jacob E. Goldstein and his som Isidor. In 1880 they came to Copenhagen from the small Danish town Nakskov. At that time they were already succesful fur traders, with customers in Manu provincial towns in Denmark.

People BEEN out here on the #hustle, using MAD #creativity to make a #dollar. What's your excuse for not succeeding in #business??

Cannot wait to show you what Miss Row and I come up with together. Upcycled youth clothing with handmade touches! This is going to be inspired by the fairy princess who rocks high heels, baseball caps, and girlie dresses AND my grandma Charlie (Charlotte). Both two of the most important people in my life.

Charlea comes from a combination of my first name Charlotte and my middle name Hollea. Pronounced just like my grandma’s was, but with my spelling flair.

"Let's make our mothers our business partners!" reads the opposite side of this motivational poster. Employers used motivational posters like this one from 1927 (not to mention pulling on the heartstrings) to encourage the behaviors they wanted to see in their staff.

2018 Resolution: Stay in touch with friends and family. A weekly 📞 call might help.
Western Electric manufactured the pink “Princess” telephone beginning in 1959. In mid-century America, as telephones became mainstream instruments of teen communication, phone manufacturers began designing specifically for the growing teenage market. Available in white, beige, pink, blue, and turquoise, the Princess was designed to be a bedside phone for teenagers—specifically teenage girls. To facilitate bedside use, the phone took up only a third of the space of the standard desk phone. It also had a night 💡under the dial—perfect for late-night conversations. These features were brought to the fore with the advertising slogan: “It’s little, it’s lovely, it lights!” #NewYearsResolution #HistoryResolution #PhoneHistory #Teens #TeenHistory #BusinessHistory #2018Goals #AdvertisingHistory

It was to expand its #manufacturing capacity that #moresco set up a branch in #malmo in #1892 . At that time Malmö was not her #eletrified and Moresco built its own generators for power and light. The #company left a lasting mark on the city in the form of the Moresco Bridge. #morescobron #historiska #historisk #forskning #virksomhedshistorie #vintage #blackwhite #scandinavianmodern #fashionhistory #businesshistory #furtrade #furs

Muutamaan päivään mahtu paljon. Mm. Uskali Mäen keynotea, päijänneristeilyä ja illallista sekä Ilmavoimamuseota Tikkakoskella. Ei tällaista ihan jatkuvasti pääse kokemaan. #EBHS #conference #jkl #history #economichistory #businesshistory
