A business is an organization that seeks profits by producing or buying and selling goods or services. It can be a small or large company.
A business may also be an entity that is in pursuit of a purpose or goal, such as a nonprofit organization. This is often called a “purpose-driven business,” and it differs from a for-profit or corporate business that primarily seeks profit.
Business news is a type of journalism that focuses on the people, events and issues of the business sector. It usually appears in newspapers, magazines, and radio or television-news shows.
It may include the latest news from a particular company and its financial statements. It may also include stories about a company’s social or environmental activities, such as its efforts to provide clean water or energy.
Businesses can be small or large, and they can be in a variety of industries. Some are sole proprietorships and others are multinational corporations.
The main difference between the word business and occupation is that the former implies work in which one engages on a regular basis, while the latter suggests work in which someone pursues a particular cause or avocation. The distinction is not always easy to understand, but it can help a writer choose between the two when he or she wants to convey a sense of seriousness and accomplishment in an article.
