Current Happenings

Last week Saturday (February 9th) my sophomore daughter finished her basketball season.  The team has great chemistry, which afforded them a 19-1 record.  Their one loss was to an intracity rival, and it was only by 1 point!  It was disappointing because it would have been great to have an unblemished record, but it taught them how to lose gracefully.

As a family, we are dealing with the polar vortex that is going on throughout the Midwest.!  While I have lived in the Midwest my entire life, I have been to almost every major city within the US.  Let’s just say, I am not a fan of winter but I have ties-that-bind me to where I live.

Lastly, this is a great video that reminds me of what Sir Richard Branson says;

By putting your employees first, the customer effectively comes first by default, and in the end, the shareholder comes first by default as well.

The takeaway I get from this is when employers treat their employees well, (and like the video explains, not with “things,”) people are happier and more productive.

It makes sense to me – how about you?
