Job Opportunity – Mebane, NC

submitted by Heather Wallace:

I have an attorney friend in Mebane, NC whose assistant just gave notice. Know of anyone with office experience or has had some legal or criminal classes? The first person she hired had solid office experience and stayed two years. The second person has criminal justice classes and apparently only planned to stay for the summer. I’m pretty sure the hours are flexible. Mostly mornings are preferred.

You can contact Heather through the Facebook posting or you can use the contact form on this site and I’ll put you in touch with Heather.

Motivation Quotes for Goal Setting

This is a great website for inspiring words about goal setting. One of the very pertinent ones for success in business is from Mary Kay Ash:

“There are three types of people in this world: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened. We all have a choice. You can decide which type of person you want to be. I have always chosen to be in the first group.”

Example of FOCM Business Services

A couple of years ago, a friend was going to open a retail business and knew the theme she wanted, but was unsure of the name.  I offered to tap into my network of and see what we could come up with.  I emailed a group of about 30 people and we conducted a name brainstorming session via email.  Within a week, we had over 100 names and about 15 which she felt were very good ones.  There is so much talent and experience in the FOCM Network, tapping into FOCM members to solve business problems is one of the benefits of membership.
