Why does one person get choked up over a Hallmark commercial, while another sheds tears only for the death of a loved one? Does the exhortation “Have a good cry” carry physiological or psychological merit? And how do crying behaviors differ among cultures and between the sexes?

New research by psychologists is beginning to answer these questions, helping us better understand what human tears mean from social, psychological, and neuroscientific perspectives.

“I think the study of crying, more than is the case for any other emotional expression, may help us to obtain a better insight into human nature,” says leading…

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Even if you have a full-time job, there’s nothing wrong with putting a little extra cash in your pocket. It’s not about greed: Having an additional income stream means that you get out of debt or fatten your savings.

But, there’s another possible outcome. You may be able to make this into a bonafide full-time job. That means you can be your own boss or generate a passive income.

If you never thought about this before, 2020 should have opened your eyes — especially if you’re struggling as a business owner or…

As creative entrepreneurs, we are always relying on inspiration. It’s what drives us forward to make new art and express ourselves in a financially viable way. However, this expression usually needs some guidance to succeed. You can have the best idea in the world, but it won’t matter if you lack the knowledge of executing it. For this, we are dependent on those who came before us, those who cultivated their own knowledge through experience: mentors.

Unfortunately, not all of us will have the privilege of directly studying under a capable mentor. Many young creative entrepreneurs will have to forge…

The way that purchasers saving Debenhams and Arcadia don’t need their 500 shops shows how profound the high road emergency is.

The coronavirus pandemic has meant a brutal period for high street retailers, many of which were struggling before last spring as more and more consumer sales moved online.

This trend was particularly noticeable last week with the rescue deals brokered for the stable of brands owned by Arcadia, Sir Philip Green’s bust fashion group, and for ailing department store chain Debenhams. …

When we are liberated from our restrictions, what are the protected choices for wandering out? A year ago was the time of strolling outside, so maybe — and I might be one-sided — 2021 will be the year for journeys, given that since the beginning individuals have made journeys on the occasion of emergency? To lay the ground for rediscovery, in summer 2020 the British Pilgrimage Trust (BPT) dispatched Britain’s Pilgrim Places, a summary of 600 locales and 100 courses, which I co-created.

Strolling outside is the way, since the beginning, a large number of mankind’s greats have discovered significance…
