Say Thanks to Our Troops

Look what Xerox is doing. Won't you take just a minute and send a postcard? It is so easy to do you could do it every day.

For the troops in Iraq


If you go to this web site, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services. How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! It is FREE and it only takes a second.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to know we are behind them. This takes just 10 seconds and it's a wonderful way to say thank you. Please take the time and please take the time to pass it on for others to do. We can never say enough thank you's. Thanks for taking to time to support our military!

You Were Dupped

I don't know which is sadder. That Americans allowed the liberal media to elect B. Hussein Obama or that Americans were too lazy to learn anything about him. If you haven't seen it, here is the proof.

If you didn't watch Fox News during the 2-year election ordeal, you were sorely misinformed. The economy is important but the collapse was generated on purpose by a Democratic legislature over the past 2-4 years. You were dupped and voted your pocketbook.

Our forefathers made clear the mission statement of the United States. It is to protect our borders and protect the sanctify of life. Our forefathers also warned us to never vote for anyone who wasn't a strong, committed Christian and who clearly understood the Divine call the United States had - we were even called the "New Jerusalem." It is a sad state of affairs when our highest official neither knows nor cares about the mission statement of the United States.

My son, Adam, is a U.S. Marine currently in Iraq. He and all other military men and women deserved a Commander in Chief with experience and who knows why we are here, where we are going, and how to get there.

The Ideal Workplace
A visitor to my website asked for help in describing the ideal work environment. Here was my response.

The ideal job has a lot to do with your personality/communication style. Assuming you can describe yourself in adjectives, and hopefully since you are applying for a job you know yourself well enough you can, then you can use the same type adjectives to describe the ideal work environment for you.

So if you are a dominant style, your ideal environment will be one that involves high risk, fast paced, quick decision making where you have some control and influence in the outcome.

If you are an interactive style, your ideal environment will be one that involves interaction with a lot of people, are always meeting new and different people, control of your schedule so it is not boring, and very little paperwork.

If you are a supportive style, your ideal environment will be where you have steady routine, no surprises, can complete one project before starting another, and be a team player as opposed to being the leader.

If you are the analyst style, your ideal environment will be where you have time to analyze patterns, solve problems, see things through from start to finish, and know the final outcome of your work/project is correct/right.

Ultimately, you’ll have to answer the question, “why should I hire you?” So be prepared to describe yourself in adjectives.

For more information, here are links to a couple of my articles on the subject.

Also, if you cannot describe yourself in adjectives, you need to take advantage of the assessments I offer. They can be accessed on my web site.
