By the Book: How to Keep Good Employees

Posted on 01 Mar 2018

Lean in. Listen well. What I’m about to say is important. It’s one of the hard truths we don’t want to hear, like deep-fried chicken is unhealthy; it may be delicious and soul-satisfying, but a steady diet of it leads to a higher probability of health issues than baby kale salads.

Posted on 18 Jan 2018

Living paycheck to paycheck isn’t living the dream. Have you swiped your debit card at the grocery store and said a prayer at the same time? This happens when you don’t have a personal budget and you’re not watching your money come and go. As Benjamin Franklin said, “Mind your pennies and the dollars will […]

Posted on 02 Jan 2018

Your phone rings in the early morning before you’ve turned on your Keurig. It’s an angry client firing you because his building wasn’t cleaned last night. Again! You pinch yourself. Maybe it’s a bad dream. Unfortunately not and definitely not a great way to start a day, especially before coffee. This is a true story […]
