November 28, 2018   |  CNN Business

The Journal of Occupational Health reports that business travelers who spend two weeks a month or more traveling are significantly more likely to report a host of health problems including depression, anxiety, alcohol dependence and sleep problems. Experts, including Wake Forest counseling professor Allison Forti, suggested ways to reduce the stress of business trips. Forti said make time periodically to take stock of how you’re feeling and what you’re doing. “When you travel a lot, you can get into autopilot, and start doing things and not know why, like eating the same big meal at the same restaurant, or not talking to your partner.”

The Wake Forest community remembers President George H.W. Bush and his visit for the National Presidential Debate hosted by the college in 1988. Beth Dawson McAlhany, alumnus and Wake Forest Director of Development for the Northeast region, was one of the three students who successfully petitioned to host the debate at Wake Forest. “Wake immediately embraced us as a representative team of three students who would be involved,” McAlhany recalls. “I just remember that so much of my college life had to do with that from there on.” McAlhany said she will always remember Bush as a humble and kind person. “He just exemplified the values and the leadership that our country deserves and across all offices,” she said. “He just, I thought, was a great human being and a great patriot.”

Should you run more than one company

November 30, 2018   |  Entrepreneur

Parallel entrepreneurship – running multiple companies at once – is becoming more common among small-business owners and large-scale executives. Executive director for the Center for Entrepreneurship at Wake Forest, Dan Cohen, says that parallel entrepreneurship is growing because “starting companies has never been cheaper. It used to be that you needed a physical space and a receptionist to answer the phone and then you needed a bookkeeper to pay the bills. Now there are all these online tools available, so you can work from Starbucks.”
