8 Signs Of An Extraordinary Boss, Does Your Boss Possess Any Of Them?

Thanks so much to Ann, one of my Facebook friends, for sending me this article.  She said she saw me on WZZM 13 talking about this one story in the news. A few weeks back an employee donated a kidney to her boss who then proceeded to fire her.  By the amount of email and Facebook posts I received, most people did understand the point I was trying to make.  The point being, it's best to not do something expecting something in return.  What was "owed" or "expected" from this so-called "donation" should have been discussed beforehand.

But now, there's a boutique you can go to in order to get rid of the itchy little pests.

Obese White Women Shy Away From Colon Cancer Screenings

Research conducted recently show that obese, white, women, are less  likely than normal-weight white women or blacks of any weight or gender to  seek potentially life-saving colon cancer screenings.  The reluctance on their part is particularly serious because obesity is associated  with a higher risk for colon cancer and an increased risk of death from the disease

Netflix “Unlimited Employee Vacation Policy” Works. Here’s Why!

Netflix employees are some of the luckiest in the nation and here's the reason why.  Can you even imagine what unlimited vacation would mean to you?  To me, it would make me work harder because I wouldn't want to lose a job where your employer trusts that you will do the right thing and reward you for doing it.  It would be one of those jobs that you never want to lose.  But it would take someone who does the right thing when no one is watching, someone who is self motivated and can also self monitor.
