I decided to put a spin on one of our five core values – Service. Most of our members are in-it-for-the-money business majors, more interested in watching the Wall Street ticker than getting their hands dirty serving the community.

The motive behind this event was to inform college students, recent graduates, and business professionals that doing good isn’t just about satisfying a core value of a professional business fraternity - it’s about ...

To understand spiritual wisdom one should read the Tao Te Ching, the book of Oriental philosophy, practice and  wisdom.    And to understand the Tao, along with Oriental philosophy in general, one has to understand the concept of Yin and Yang.      Yin and Yang is the continuous rhythm of life, or life force that pulsates continually through the universe, in the seemingly separate but in truth one complementary actions called Yin and Yang.        The T’ai-chi T’u diagram shown here illustrates this principle. The symmetrical disposition of the dark Yin and the light Yang suggests cyclical changes.      When Yin reaches its ... market research, surveys and trends

Captain Pete, as everyone in town calls him, has been an oysterman nearly his entire life. He started as a boy, learning the trade from his father, who had learned it from his father.

They inspire the people around them with their palpable belief in the mission of the organization. #2) Challenges to overcome include the fact that many nonprofits have employees who are not producing good work. In the for-profit world, they would be fired, but the nonprofit world has a hard time letting weak performers go. Another challenge is to get nonprofit managers to manage the "double bottom line" ...
