Spend your money client wise

As I write this blog I’m laughing. When I execute a contract with a client I articulate what expenses are allowed (I.e. Meals, rental car, lodging etc). Before I dispatch specialist on a detail I let them know what they can expense back to me for reimbursement. Normally the detail leader has a BPI Amex …

Speak up and save a life

There is no such thing as a new idea. If you look hard enough anything phrased as a new idea is nothing more than an old one revamped in some way. Maybe a better way to word it should be new outlook. Many ideas need to be revamped and given a new outlook in order …

Have you noticed

I can’t put my finger on any one specific event but I am comfortable with saying that it started around the BW Fallujah incident. I am a member of several web groups that advertise job and position postings as well as overseas contractor news. Is it me or has there been a growth in new …

Exterior influences on focus

Yesterday I received a call from a client that needed a rapid response to a potential issue. After getting all of the facts of the problem I immediately put in place an assessment and a surveillance on the tango. What you should know is that for the last 2 months I have been dealing with …

The winds of change

I don’t ever want to come across as a know-it-all nor do I profess that I do. What I do know is what has worked for me and definitely what has NOT worked for. What I try to do in this medium is to convey those things to help, guide and alleviate those receptive specialists …
