Never sacrifice integrity for growth !

Posted by on in Biz Ops
Never sacrifice integrity for growth.  It has been years since I read a company motto with so much clarity! It is especially encouraging when it comes from an energy provider. I knew the Government Deregulation of energy would help me save money on my utility bills but I didn't want to do business with people that called me at dinner time or showed up at my door.  When a well- respected businessman in our community called and requested an appointment regarding Ambit Energy I was happy to give him some of my time. I had read the INC Magazine article and...

When you retire or ETS from the military, you may be worried about what you will do in the civilian sector. The economy is somewhat unstable right now, and the unemployment rate continues to hover around 7%, though it dropped below 6% recently, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Jobs may be scarce, depending upon your location and what type of employment you are looking to obtain. However, one area that currently needs skilled, motivated workers is the welding industry.

A US Marine knocked on our door desperate to get the utilities turned back on in his house for himself, his wife and their two, small children. We started HireMarines, a simple One Day job board, expecting a dozen jobs a month. Instead, we got 10,000 people a week who visited our job board! --Immediately our website ranked in the top 1% of all US and global websites.   We saw this as a...

Turning Weakness Into Strength

Posted by on in Guest
Turning Weakness Into Strength, One Foot At a Time Excerpted from the new book At Home Recovery Handbook by Keith Angelin I am fascinated by the story described in Matthew 14:28-30 of Peter walking on water: 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Pretend for a moment that Jesus is back in town.
