  3. funny friday

    This joke is attributed to “Unknown” by boardofwisdom.com.

    Sadly, Bob was born without ears, and though he proved to be successful in business, his problem annoyed him greatly. One day he needed to hire a new manager for his company, so he set up three interviews.

    The first guy was great. He knew everything he needed to know and was very interesting. But at the end of the interview, Bob asked him, “Do you notice anything different about me?””Why, yes, I couldn’t help but notice that you have no ears,” came the reply. Bob did not appreciate his candor and threw him out of the office.

    The second interview was with a woman, and she was even better than the first guy. But he asked her the same question “Do you notice anything different about me?” “Well,” she said stammering, “you have no ears.” Bob again got upset and chucked her out in a rage.

    The third and final interviewee was the best of the bunch, he was a young man who had recently earned his MBA. He was smart. He was handsome, and he seemed to be a better businessman than the first two put together. Bob was anxious, but went ahead and asked the young man the same question “Do you notice anything different about me?” Much to his surprise, the young man answered, “Yes, you wear contact lenses, don’t you?”

    Bob was shocked and realized this was an incredibly observant person. “How in the world did you know that?”, he asked.

    The young man fell off his chair laughing hysterically and replied, “Well, it’s pretty hard to wear glasses with no ears!”

Here’s some stretches that really hep prevent injury and get the blood flowing.

  9. design a logo the right way

    A company’s logo is it’s face to the world. It’s the starting point for creating your brand, but what’s the process? How do you as a client get a good logo that best represents your company? Using a qualified designer is a good starting point, a good place to look is the Graphic Designer’s of Canada’s website, or ask people you know who are in business. Once you’ve found a designer, look at their portfolio to see if they have work you like, as well as seeing if they’re a good problem solver. (more…)
