Describing myself in one word, I am practical. Psychologically, I embody practical intelligence that allows me to excel professionally. During difficult economic times, my practical mind prepares me to develop the most budget-efficient tactics, making me a recession-proof asset to any team. My practicality also enables me to keep up with fast-paced trends and adapt to ever-changing industries with little to no assistance. Lastly, my “do-it-myself” attitude encourages me to take initiative. I am confident enough in my abilities, that I am not afraid to think outside the box and not only offer up ideas, but take ...

Gilland said she has come to the conclusion that the reorganization ... market research, surveys and trends

Meetings of the mind: too many companies have ineffective meetings ...
"We've done skits during meetings to help depict the right and wrong ways to deal with customers. We always start on time and end on a positive note," explained J.R. Richard, CEO of the Houston pool-building firm. Richard's company is a rarity. More often than not, company and department meetings are inefficient, disorderly and ineffective. Every day, approximately 11 million meetings are held in the United States. That means roughly 37 percent of employee time is spent in meetings, according to the National Statistics Council. What's more, researchers have found that nearly all meeting attendees ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Greek pocketbook snaps shut
FORTUNE -- In Glyfada, an affluent coastal suburb of Athens, Aleka Maxtapolou, a 38-year old entrepreneur, spent almost an hour on a recent weekday evening hunting for an ATM that could dispense cash. "What have we come to when we can't even get the cash that's ours," she muttered under her breath with a laugh. Maxtapolou's problem was with technology, but for the rest of Greece, the issue is liquidity. In the middle of its first recession since 1993 and at the center of a debt crisis that has roiled the world's financial markets, Greece is out of cash and the mood in Athens is palpably gloomy. Even the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

I want to move to Georgia, can anyone tell me about Athens ...
I am married with three kids and looking to live in a better place. I would be moving with section eight so how is the public housing there? I'm moving from New York City. 3 years ago Member since: September 22, 2006 Total points: 582 (Level 2) Girl, you would really want to do your homework on this one. I don't know much about Georgia but moving with a Section 8 could really be tricky. Try to find a private landlord willing to accept your certificate. This is always better than public housing. Keep in mind when looking to find GOOD schools for your children...low income doesn't have to mean uneducated!
