A recent escapade involving the customer service section of a major U.S. firm, that I subscribe to, can only be described as the most exasperating experience I have recently gone through. Many of you will likely see yourselves here, and in retrospect, it is kind of funny what I went through. I'm relaying the conversations, and some of the aspects of the experience, to highlight what outsourcing U.S. jobs can do to our quality of life.
It all started when a service that I subscribe to went kaput. I didn't realize it at first, because I thought it was something that I did, or the equipment... Read More
It was almost three years ago to the day that I realized my then current employer was changing course. I analysed this course and determined that my role in the organization would be drastically reduced or eliminated in three to five years.
I wasn't happy with my career. I had oppressive management that thrived on choking the life out of creativity and ambition. One year ago the director of that organization in an all staff meeting came out and said, "Stop asking for promotions or lateral movement. We are all lucky to have a job."
Today I write this article, on a ride in my... Read More
Entrepreneur, Entrepreneur, what does it mean to be an entrepreneur?
Means you’ve had it, your done, sick of ordinary, you must have more!
No bosses, no schedules, how quickly they set in.
It’s fine, we can, we like getting it done.
To much?, Not enough! That’s right, sometimes it’s all about us!

Try out of the box, not in the box, you don’t think enough,
Isn’t that what... Read More
Conflict at work, at home, caused by differences of opinion is an inevitable part of lives. Each of us has a different way of managing conflicts. In business conflicts are an important part of creativity, solving problems and overall business growth. It could be said that the same applies to our personal relationships.
At an intellectual level it’s easy to see why differences of opinion can lead to great harms or benefits. The majority of people would prefer the latter. Yet, when conflicts arise the latter, typically does not occur Most people rely on the built “fight or flight”... Read More
Lee Iacocca rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes during the 1980's. He's now 82 years old and has a new book, 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?'.Lee Iacocca Says: "Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when... Read More
Recently I went to renew my 37-year membership with AAA. I had not received a renewal notice. I went to the Reno AT&T phone book but was unable to find any listing for AAA. I called the 800 number on my AAA membership card, 800-222-4357. I got a Don, not allowed to give last name or employee number. Don told me that there are two AAA locations in Reno, both in South Reno. 6795 S. Virginia and the other on Damonte Ranch Road. Both very way south. Not at all centrally located. AAA, where all members outside of South Reno don’t come at all at AAA.AAA has only one location in Sparks and that... Read More
When it comes to the ballroom dance racket, the bigger the dance instructor’s swarmy smile, the more expensive their lessons. Small print leads to large risk in dance contracts. Ballroom dance teachers, whether they are in a studio or these con artists at the recreation centers, don’t teach dance, they just teach you to take their dance lessons.
