This Thanksgiving, Reward Yourself by Rewarding Others

Diego TrevinoPeople often associate stuffing their faces with Thanksgiving as they do bees with making honey. But just as bees pollinate the planet, people also give back on this particular day.

The Power of Punctuality

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, better late than never.

There are probably times in life when that is true, but I can’t think of even one case where this saying would apply to the world of work. In this realm, punctuality is of the utmost importance. In most cases being punctual actually means arriving at least fifteen minutes prior to any scheduled appointment. Continue reading ‘The Power of Punctuality’
