Over a week ago I had the honor of speaking to hundreds of corporate leaders at the AIM Center on "How To Deal With Unacceptable Employee Behavior". I gave examples of 5 distinct problems I have seen in the past, they are;
2.) Intelligent Idiots
3.) Gossip Girls
4.) Liar Liars and
5.) Out of This World
Let me tell you a secret. Other than years of corporate experience I can relate very well with this topic because I WAS A PROBLEM EMPLOYEE MYSELF!
Yep! I had almost all of the 5 symptoms I mentioned above which kinda makes me an expert on this. As they say, it takes one to know one.
So let me spill the beans for you now and what could possible be the causes of these behaviors. Note, they can be taken singularly or as a whole demise all rolled up into one ghastly person.
A.) THE PERSON HIMSELF - He is just out of whack! It's either he knows he's doing it and deliberately or he's in complete denial that any manifestation exists. That is what ...Read More »

A Brilliant man named Warren Buffett said,
"The investor of today does not profit from yesterday's growth"
What does this mean? A true business mind has its eyes on the Future. Where will the Future lead us?
If you invest in what's been, what's worked, you're most likely going to lose momentum at some point, Why? For the mere fact that 'times are a changin'.
Nothing remains the same as it once was.
Things grow Old and pass away, and New things come!
Coffee is the second most desired drink in the world next to water and is the highest traded commodity in the world to that of Petroleum. This is a common and convenient business truth, however it's not so common and definitely not so convenient for the average Joe to have a hand in on the money making industry we call "A Cup 'a' Joe".
The Health and Wellness industry is on the rise; statistics say it is one of the top dollar money making industries in the world. With all things going Organic or w...Read More »

1. How much do you want to be paid?
Do your homework on what an appropriate wage range is for the job (try Glassdoor.com). Then, give a number a little higher than that range to give yourself room for negotiation.
2. What did you make at your last job?
This one sucks, but employers are asking it more, so be prepared. You can either say that your company asked you not to disclose that info when you were hired, or give a range. They can probably check, so be truthful. That said, your current salary shouldn't dictate your future one.

Sarah Ann Lewis Boyle was hired by the Carmelo School in August, 2010, to take care of kids age six months to four years old in their Child Development Center. In September 2011, after the birth of her first child, she met with her supervisor to talk about her return from maternity leave. Her doctor wanted her to breastfeed her infant son, she said, and she would need 15 to 20 minutes each day between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. to pump breast milk.
