On The Rise

All of the latest news and pieces from the world of success and business.
Print Power

The stress of owning a small business can sometimes get overwhelming. With bills to pay, clients to impress, stock to get out and emails to send, you’ve barely got time to worry about anything else. The last thing you need when you’re trying to get that important client proposal together is for ink or paper to run out in your printer.

Epson’s WorkForce ET-4750 and the recently released Expression ET-2710 save you time and money. These cartridge-free printers come with super-sized tanks and enough ink in the box to print for up to 2 years, so you can just set and forget. The Expression ET-2710 can print up to 3,600 pages in black and 6,500 in colour, while the Workforce ET-4750 is for those who mean serious business with the ability to print 14,000 pages in black and 11,200 in colour, meaning those ink replacement costs won’t even cross your mind.

Work Week Ready

2019 is just around the corner and it’s time to start looking for the ultimate diary to keep your New Year in check. The classic black diary may be practical but sometimes it’s nice to jazz up the working week. RUBY have just unveiled their popular diaries for 2019, this time in collaboration with UK-based illustrator, Gattobravo. Taking you on a culinary journey around the world, the diary shares RUBY’s six favourite destinations with a recipe from each, ranging from Konoba Maha in Croatia to the Sherwood in Queenstown. Beautifully illustrated throughout, the diary will help keep your mind inspired as each Monday rolls around.

Fierce First Lady

An advocate for women and girls and the first African-American First Lady of the USA, Michelle Obama releases her book, Becoming, in November. Her memoir follows her from her childhood in Chicago to through to balancing a demanding job with motherhood, and finally her time in the White House, all the while chronicling her successes and disappointments with honesty and wit. If you’re looking for a read about an inspirational woman, who succeeded beyond expectations, Becoming may just be your next bedtime read.
