    Wanted to share a great quote by: Thomas Alva Edison

    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    Hope you like

    Communication and Social Media

    If you still think social media is a bit of a fad you may be in for a major of a shock. Prediction: any serious business that is not also serious about its social media activities will not compete in the future. Watch the quick and very informative video:

    Orglearn (www.orglearn.org) is a reference site for mangers, that features a number of major articles regarding the things that managers need to do, or at least the issues they should consider in the soft skills area of their role. It also has major articles on the basics of human behavior and entrepreneurship and tips on teamwork, management, selling, negotiation, effective habits and communication skills. There is an interactive resume form, which is a handy free tool to see how you are doing with the commercial realities of your commercial life, or as Richard puts it, doing your resume at least once a year is like updating the asset side of your personal commercial balance sheet.
