We’ve all heard this nugget of wisdom: “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.”
Whether that particular nugget is really golden is up for debate.

Hiring a new employee is often a process of deselection. In many cases, a candidate is offered a job after all other candidates have been eliminated or placed on the B-List.
To speed this process, experienced hiring managers have mastered the art of the interview, becoming both experts at interrogation and red-pen executioners.

A lot has changed in the world since the Soul’s toe-tapping launch, but seven years later, the 2017 Kia Soul has stood the test of time, still whimsically reminding us that too much serious stuff is a drag, and that a good party can last for years.
To understand the soul of this free-spirited Kia, you have to loosen your necktie a bit, and maybe don a pair of those big, white-framed glasses that were all the rage in 2010. The Soul is a fun car, labeled as a crossover by Kia’s marketing guys.
Since its inception in 1995 as a trim level for the iconic Subaru Legacy Wagon, the Subaru Outback – now a distinct model – has defied categorization. Neither a typical SUV nor what we normally see as a crossover, the high-riding all-wheel-drive wagon brings together utility, creature comforts, and the ability to go places other wagons and crossovers dare not tread.
Nearly 7 percent of insured homes will have a claim this year and every new sunrise brings another 16,000 reported auto accidents. Modern life is risky business.
Insurance of any type is the transfer of risk from an individual to a group. If you lost your house in a fire or your car in an accident, the expense of rebuilding your home or replacing your car can be a financial disaster.

Whether $17,000 or over $100,000 or somewhere in between, most of us don’t have that kind of loose change under the couch cushions.
Do you have the right auto insurance coverage to protect your assets?
As children, we ran everywhere we went. We didn’t need a reason to run and there wasn’t much benefit in getting to where we were going faster. Running was just fun, magically able to transform the mundane into grand adventure. Once we’ve grown up and left the running habit behind us, getting started with running again can be an uphill battle.
Here are 5 running tips for beginners to get you over that first hill and beyond.
This post explains why businesses need to develop an effective content marketing strategy.
Content marketing changes the relationship between you and the prospective customer. Instead of beginning the relationship in a sometimes adversarial way, and having to first win the customer’s confidence before you’ve any hope of moving the conversation forward, you are instead providing value with no cost or obligation by the customer.
