dotStaff Supports Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation

Remember the excitement you experienced as a child when you awoke on Christmas morning, anxious to discover what all was contained in the brightly wrapped packages neatly labeled with your name!?  Would it be a cool new game, a beautiful doll, or that special toy you had always wanted? Sadly, not everyone has such good memories.  As much as they might want to, not every family is able to provide that storybook Christmas experience.  Many children go without receiving anything.  You can help though!

Philosophy, Weight Loss, and Employee Wellness Programs

Life is a Sprint

Leaving our house before 5:00 on a cold January morning with my daughter for a west coast college visit, I could not help but thoroughly enjoy what turned out to be a conversation that would ensue on and off for several hours. She expressed anxiousness about the speed with which high school passed… had she done the right things to prepare herself for college (the “right college”), what did she miss, what does she still have time to do that would improve her competitive odds at attending her schools of choice? She then expressed similar anxiety regarding college life preparations for her professional career and more clearly defining the many objectives she’s already set for achieving and exceeding her “life goals.” […]
