Politics is important in every aspect of life, business is not excluded. People make several mistakes for excluding politics from their business. However, the fact that politics is important in business does not imply that it should be mixed with business. In other words, political views and words should not be aired and voiced in business platforms because different people have their individual political inclinations.
Nonetheless, it is important to know and care about politics and you can actually take advantage of it in your business. It is no longer news that governmental policies affect businesses in a remarkable way. In fact, governmental policies can even lead to the debacle of a business and an entire industry.

To have this leverage, you need to know new laws that are made and how they concern you.
You should not just know about politics, you should have a say in it. Your vote could be the primary way for you to have a say in politics and you may not know it but your vote can make a remarkable difference.
