by Maria Ruiz Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Health and Fitness
In one of my previous articles I mentioned I was a workaholic. I worked many long hours non-stop for days, sometimes even during my days off as well. I finished working on a project and I jumped on the next one. Since I had a long commute to and from work, I kept on working while on the road. I figured might as well do something, so I used the time to make some pending calls (bluetooth on, always). When ...

Never make a decision out of anger

The problem that exist with both is that although both are proven to work, one must work ...

Sometimes I wonder how I ...

People Make You Or Break You.

by Maria Ruiz Business
One of the first lessons in management that I learned in my early days as a young manager was taught to me by one of my mentors James P. Walker, or as I like to call him "Jimmie" I remember him telling me in a fatherly voice: "Marie..., remember this always: people make you or break you". Besides the message being true, it can also be fullfilled instantly. You treat someone the right way, with respect and dignity, and the recepient responds ...
