We have come a long way as a country since those words were written. May we never forget the sacrifices and hard work that went into creating the lives that we are blessed to lead.Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
Stuff we wrote this past week:
On Tuesday, another week, another set of Tim’s Greatest Hits where I share some of my favorite of Tim’s past articles. I started this week with a GOOD Comcast service story. I know it sounds pretty impossible, but it happened and we can learn from it.
On Wednesday, regardless of what industry you work in, we all have these. Whether you call them something different or not, they’re the reason we do what we do and why we strive to make it praiseworthy.
On Thursday, now that we are almost halfway through 2017 I thought it might be a good time to start thinking about being more productive again. Tim originally wrote this article at the beginning of 2016, but we can always be working on getting things done…right?
On Friday, we had another week of Practically Social. Summer is getting into full swing so we shared some fun summer family games along with an amazing video about the love between a mother and her son.
Stuff we liked this week:
First, anyone else feel like they are slowly losing their mind? On days when I lose my phone or keys for 100th time it’s articles like this that make me believe there may still be hope for me.
Second, you can’t help everyone. Sometimes you will encounter a client that just isn’t a good match and the best choice for all involved is to fire them. It’s hard to make that call, but doing it the right way will make it a bit easier.
Third, running a business in a rural area can be hard for a lot of reasons. One of those reasons is finding good people. This article breaks this issue down into the short term, long term, and the future to help find solutions that work for you.
Fourth, a regular sized bacon, egg, and cheese bagel is just plain boring. To spice things up give this 30-lb-car-tire-sized bagel a try. Thanks to Paxton Guy for sharing!
Fifth, this math teacher wanted to liven up his class a bit. He nailed it.
How can we help you?
Well, so that’s a start to our weekend and yours as well. We’ll grow this a little over time as we add content and think of other stuff. During the week, we’re primarily going to write about the five major levels of The First Order of Business, and we’ll share our best tips on management, marketing, and motivation.
In addition, we take requests. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there’s a topic you’d like us to tackle.
Thanks for your time! Enjoy your weekend!
