Four tips to improve the quality of your day

Theresa, I really enjoyed your article. For myself, I start my day at 4am every morning reading devotions and affirmations. One of my favorite is by James Mann--"Each day when I awake, I know I have one more day to make a difference in someone's life." For me, I can't wait to see who's life I can add joy, help and make a difference. With that kind of daily mindset, my day becomes an adventure of opportunities. By Tom Ninness on 2014 12 29

Executive wheels: BMW fail

I had the same thought Jerry had upon reading this post. City streets?? Really? When reviewing an M-anything, city streets and that class of car do not belong in the same paragraph let alone sentence. By Pashmina on 2014 12 23

Human resources: an exec’s worst enemy

As a 23 year old mastermind intellectual, I find it depressing that corporations - with their internationally acclaimed precedence - hire fools and clowns such as HR It is as safe to say that 2/3 of the HR people are entirely blind to, "personal" perspectives. And as a result always wish to find a square peg for the square hole, and not a round peg for a square hole to actually innovate. Whatever "perfect" you want - there cannot be a perfect candidate. So you must train them. That's another thing! 2/3rd of the HR populous are lazy ass's who don't train their professionals upon hiring. That says something. If you're stupid enough to "Look for the perfect candidate" and at the same time not train a POTENTIAL perfect candidate. you are wasting as much as time for the company for "Human RESOURCES" as you are claiming would-be perfect candidates as inferior.

What do Dominos and an appraiser have in common?

Good article, but I would disagree on values with appraisers coming in inflated at 20%. I think most real estate brokers with highly disagree with this statement. The mess created by the supposed "appraisal pool" and how they now do things is totally bazaar! Most people know appraisals are only done, for the most part, for lenders- so beware and be prepared as the article suggests. By Fred R Schneider on 2014 12 19

The Economist: Businesses are hiring...

You too can land a low paying job and pay a 30% tax rate while spending more time away from your family and any recreation. It's the American way. By Steven Shepard on 2014 12 17

The gift of great hires

Employers who make unreasonable demands from potential employees prior to employment deserve no loyalty or performance after employment. Background checks, credit checks, certifications, drug tests and citizenship verification for a 'job' are intrusive and rude and it is time American workers draw the line on this vulgar HR practice. By Steven Shepard on 2014 12 16
