Sticking to the facts

Quite a lot of news out there these days. Generally, that’s always true, but it certainly seems louder now. We’ve got 24/7 media to thank for that, broadcast and social.

Hiring the best people

I’ve worked in retail and in Corporate America. Over those many years I’ve hired a lot of people. I tried very hard at hiring the best people. It’s not easy. But, I think I managed a pretty good track record. All it takes is following some pretty basic rules. Admittedly, when I was a young… Read more »
