Do you know what I absolutely hate spending money on?
I spend tons on cards for people that may be displayed on a counter for a couple of days and then casually get tossed into the trash. Even the "discount" cards are still around $2.99. And let's not even discuss the dollar store cards. Much cheaper but...scary-looking! You know what I mean? If you've ever seen one, we're on the same page.
But a friend of mine recently formed a business that…Continue

It is thrilling to commit to making your business a success by showing up to work each business day. If you ask most employers what they want most from an employee, one thing that will almost always make the list is for the employee to be dependable and show up to work each day.
