I had a habit of reading newspaper early in the morning. Being a Business manager, I have to travel a lot, all across the globe. I am from Lebanon, working for a US based firm in gulf. I always made sure to read Lebanese news paper, wherever I went. Internet has become a very good medium to keep track of every thing. All major media firms publish their newspaper online for the readers.
Even though as a Business Manager, I get to read international news papers but reading news from my home country is always my top priority because I like to read about the financial market in Lebanon. I have lots of shares in many companies across Lebanon. I usually traded in local share market and have great interest in it. No other news paper provides complete details about financial market in Lebanon.
The other reason for me to read Lebanese news paper is that, as a Business Manager of a firm, most of the contracts which I get are from my own country, so I regularly have to check local news papers for firms in Lebanon who can become our business associates.
Once I was traveling all around Europe for business, my laptop had some problem and it was not working. I was very desperate to read local newspaper from my country, so I had to use the internet service provided by the hotel. I bought a new laptop because there was no way, I could have repaired my existing laptop and also I was going to travel for at least 25 more days around various European cities.
As a Business Manager, it was my duty to get as much business from my all around the world but for me, Lebanon was the top base from where I used to get majority of clients for my company. All these clients used to export high quality raw materials at cheap rates and also many local traders used to buy our products to sell in the markets all across Lebanon.
Lebanese news paper allowed me to track all business related activities, also I use to help my company in getting cheap labor from Lebanon. Every week, I used to publish vacancies of my firm and I had to travel to Lebanon to interview the candidates. As a business manager, I had lots of responsibility and at all cost, I had to keep increasing the business of my company.
