Time For Change!

Sometimes when facing things we have no control over we tend to get Angry, Upset even Disappointed? The one thing we have control over is our personal emotions and thoughts. Do you think the most Rich and Famous People got where they are overnight? Michael Jordon said it best He once said, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games.

This is an ineffective practice due to the effects it has on everyone at any given company, it can only create instability.

I motivated a coworker every day.

Each day I prepare the cash bags for our two cashier stations. I place a motivational quote every day in each bag! Sometimes you need a pick me up and don’t even know it! Those are the best ones to receive!

That's a great idea Lauri Etling !

DOES COMPANY CULTURE MATTER?

When Choosing An Employer, Culture Matters

When determining whether an employer is the right fit for you, it is important to find out about its culture. Companies are as different as the people who work there and run the business.

I have finally been hired!!

I have been sending out resumes since May of last year and I finally landed a job that doesn't need one! Since I have been out of any kind of real work since I got off active duty to take care of our girls, I've had to rebuild my work history. So I really don't mind that the job is a warehouse job. The pay is decent (i.e., much better than nothing), and I have a chance to finish my degree in Paralegal Studies and my certificate in IT Tech…
