This was an easy decision as I have always believed & preached to any that would listen, your job defines who you are.
But 2 standouts made this decision easy:
I want to also take this opportunity for all those that have emailed me when a change was evident to ask what is happening. We live in strange times where people that we never meet have a interest.
So, there will be
less no more suits & ties as this company has a strict policy about “NO TIES & SUITS”..
