Moneyball Rules: Offering More Experienced Workers Less Money!

For years I’ve been trying to get people to understand this Moneyball concept as it relates to hiring, but few really listen. I know you saw the movie, Moneyball, where a major league baseball general manager finds success by signing and drafting ‘undervalued’ players.

America First: The White Collar Workers Who Got Outsourced

Your liberal friends want you to believe everyone who voted for Trump are racist, low paid, middle-aged white dudes from the Midwest. It’s nice and clean when you put it into that box.

Maybe You Should Just Do The Job You Were Hired For

It seems like frustration is at an all-time high. On a daily basis people are coming unglued over things they have no control over, and never will. We are told to be more empathetic. We are told our employees need us to be “X”. You fill in the “X” because it changes pretty much article […]

Most of Your Dream Won’t Come True…

…but some will. That’s what it’s all about. We don’t live and work and struggle to reach every single dream. That’s impossible. We do all of this for the chance we might actually get the chance to see some of our dreams come true. Maybe even just one. I guess it depends on what kind […]

The One Fix to Talent Acquisition You’re Too Afraid to Implement

There’s a ton of reasons we are afraid of stuff. I was never scared of the dark, but for some stupid reasons, I’m scared of bees. I know that I’m not going to die from a bee. I’ve been stung. It hurts, you get over it. Yet, I hate when a bee is buzzing around […]

The Joe Biden Employee Appreciation Award

I’m sure by now most of you have seen President Obama give Joe Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom. It was very moving, no matter which side of the aisle you sit: Let’s face it, being the Vice President of the United States is a thankless job. You don’t really get credit for anything besides […]
