The Blog

Nobody Cares (How Awesome You Are) There is an interesting article in the current Bloomberg Businessweek that hardly qualifies as breaking news – since Tenacity has been saying the same thing for over 30 years now.  You can link to it at: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-05-23/nobody-cares-how-awesome-you-are-at-your-job#r=most%20popular.
