You’re Late!
If you’re like most employers, there is that one person who can’t consistently make it to work on time. Let’s call this person B (we’ll call them A when they start showing up on time). B knows what the start time is. But B continually and regularly fails to abide by the start time.
Too Busy for Vacay?
I’ll be honest - I wrote this blog in advance because I'm on vacation today. All week, in fact. I hope you are too. But maybe you’re not.

My thoughts may be helpful as you prepare your goals for next year...

Fewer hours equals less money in the bank. So, how do we work less and earn MORE? It is entirely possible, but requires a strategy and good execution...
You Must Be So Busy
I used to be so busy. Every week was a 50+ hour week. I remember the all-nighters to finish the massive bid packages. There was never a year with more than two weeks of vacation. So I can relate to those who still think that staying so swamped with work is a sign of success. Except they’re stuck in a trap making it impossible to grow their business….
