Remembering the "Value Add"


Since I often focus on the “waste” and problems in life and the working world, today's a great day to stop, step back, and focus on the value added aspects of life…. family and friends.

Best wishes to all for Christmas and for the holiday season. Best wishes to our blog readers from around the world.
