~ Charles Popplestown
Are you worried about keeping your job? Let’s face it; there are many things out of your control, from the sad state of the economy to downsizing and cutbacks to the worry of putting food on the table and getting your kids through college.

Have you heard the old saying, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten?“ Carrying on hoping for the best is just not good enough. No matter where you are in your career you have to learn to enhance your skills and change with the times or you most certainly will be left behind.
