Sorry, but this needs its own post, and to be imprinted on the brain of every person in charge of any company in the world. "Grow. Hire. Repeat."

Inc. Magazine's "The build 100". You won't regret taking a look.

Our first survey of these sustained-growth champions finds that they share a lot of leadership DNA.

Every once in a while, a journalist - a TRUE journalist - will restore my faith in the species. Here is an article from Charles S. Pierce published at Esquire's online site today.
Of all the sins against the craft of journalism, the one I find the most mortal is the acceptance by journalists as axiomatic the notion that "Perception is reality." This is a fine thing for ad men, and for consultants, and for the other witches and...

While we sometimes see outpourings of help for families who lose a loved one in war, we seldom see the faces of those who just as unexpectedly get the task of caring for an injured loved one the rest of their lives. War wounds can be especially horrific - we humans are very good at hurting each other.

Take a minute and read this short article.
The life of a military caregiver is a relationship that many involved in a relationship with a military member do not expect or sign on for.  Elizabeth Dole, wife of former military member Sen. Bob...

What's going on with big companies and their interactions with their customers? I hope you notice this, but just in case - 

Ever wonder why you try to submit a comment, but it won't let you "sign in" with your chosen account? Try one with more contacts or which allows more access to your "friends" - see for yourself what works. Cough, Huffington Post

General Mills - who let the lawyers in there? Do you REALLY think that you will win in the end by saying that if you "like" anything related to your company, or simply buy your products, that we voluntarily give up our rights to sue you?

On the other hand, Inc. Magazine crunched some numbers to get The Build 100, a list of companies that grew every single year of the Great Recession (http://thebuildnetwork.com/about/build-100/). Check out what qualities REALLY make a company successful in the long term (hint: It's not disrespecting your customers).
General Mills has introduced a revised legal policy that takes away consumers' rights to sue if they if they enter into certain forms of engagement with the company online, including downloading coupons, entering sweepstakes, and buying products from General Mills websites.

I grew up in Montana, and while I believe that Mr. Rosendale has the right to express himself, this kind of political visual needs to stop. A TRUE Montanan, instead of a Maryland transplant, would know that you don't fire rifles in the air, because you can't control where those bullets come back down to Earth.

I wouldn't vote for this type of candidate based solely on their willingness to use sensational video as a substitute for real character.

A highly misleading video. He knows that many people feel strongly about firearms and is using that to try make them his fools.

Now, I don't agree with all of the items on this list - who does for any of these lists? However, I see something in this list, from a non-religious entity, that you won't find in most lists. The encouragement to be kind.

Check it out, then marvel that it came from Esquire Magazine.
