Yikes, It’s 2020! How Did That Happen and What are You Going to do About It?

Yikes, is it really 2020? I know it’s a new decade and all but honestly, I feel like we just moved from 2009 to 2010 so how did 2020 creep up so fast? I’ve heard that time seems to go by even faster as you age (my mom and dad taught me that in the […]

In The Spirit Of The Holiday

I know that I say this every year but here I go again, “can you believe that we are coming to the end of 2019? How did the year go by so quickly?”  For me, and I imagine for most of you too, there have been some highs and some lows this past year but […]

Showing Thanks at Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the day that really kicks off the holiday season. Sure, there’s Halloween but the end of October seemed just a bit too early to focus on Christmas and Hanukkah and all of the festivities that surround these major holidays.

The Case For Keeping Employees in the Loop

“Did you hear that they’re restructuring the department?” “Someone told me that they’re thinking of selling the company.” “The word in my department is that there is talk of a merger.

Talking Trash About Your Company on Social Media
