A cheater’s paradise

This blog was originally written on my aCOMMENTary blog November 24, 2016.   A cheater’s paradise   Policing employees’ performance is one thing that most companies do well. However, being the corporate watchdog is quite a different conundrum. At what point do company code of ethics cross over into personal behavior at work. In some areas it is […]

A struggle won is a triumph

Like most of us at the tail end of Baby Boomers while being drowned out by Millennials, we’re trying to get ahead.  Achieve success, notoriety or acclaim.  Subsidize our career choices with our inner voices.  To help others, to help ourselves.  To exhaust our demons by writing and exhuming scars that life has left on our […]

A leap of faith

This video is catching on virally and resonating with people who lived during the 80s in Kevin Bacon’s message to Millennials on Kevin Bacon explains the 80s to Millennials.   I thought I’d add my commentary, as I’ve written before on how the 80s really was for those born in 1960-65 — the ones graduating […]

#TGIF #Friday

I wrote this last night. Rarely would I think this reminiscing should appear on the more serious veneer of optioneerJM or expose a side of Jeannette Marshall, not many have seen.  It does tend to fall into our twenties.
