"Better means change and change means risk and risk means fear." #truth Change is hard sometimes 
It seems like a stupid question. Of course we want our organization, our work and our health to improve. But often, we don't. Better means change and change means risk and risk means fear. So the organization is filled with...

On Friday, Mother Jones shared a cartoon by the Southern Poverty Law Center that pretty much sums up this incredible week (below). Could it get any better? Yes. Some genius knew exactly what that comic strip looked like and created the GIF shown above.

Are you an automotive dealer in search of an expensive, online, video training offering for which you can overpay and yet improve nothing? Well, my online video training is still 100% free and it’s helping dealers and salespeople all over the world sell more for more - so it's probably not a fit for you.If you are interested in growing your business through actionable lessons that cost you nothing, here is a breakdown of the three most popular le...

Very helpful to their customers in choosing the right cut of meat and how large a portion that you should buy. I purchased a whole tenderloin for Christmas dinner and they gladly cut some of it off for steaks, and neatly tied and wrapped the rest of the roast to make it oven ready.

Great family burger place. Stick to ordering burgers which is what they do best. Other menu items are not as good. Have always had excellent service.

These guys can do it all. From a simple rip or tear, or cigarette burn to a complete interior restoration on classic cars. They have helped me install complete interior packages and even installed a brand new convertible top on some classic cars that I restored. I hihjly recommend them.
