If I Were God — Would I Hire Me?

By Ron Edmondson

I’m not trying to be cute or clever with the title or with this post. The thought occurred to me recently.

If I were God — would I hire me?

Now granted, I’m not God. You can say a loud amen to that. And, God is not like me. Bigger amen expected.

Everyone God calls is unqualified apart from His grace. And, God calls unlikely people to do extraordinary work.

But, just for my own thought and evaluation process, my thoughts pondered this question recently.

If I were God — like if for a minute I got to make a choice concerning my employment for God — what would I choose?

Would I choose me?

Do I often complain more than I try to find solutions?

Do I fail to see the long-term gain favoring instead the momentary personal pleasure? FULL POST

Things To Look For When Hiring An Attorney

After you’ve been in a car accident or have another event occur that requires you to hire an attorney, it is important that you make the right choice. You don’t want to find yourself in a bad situation with rising insurance costs, or legal issues, just because you didn’t do your homework when finding an attorney to represent you. By keeping a few tips in mind in the beginning of the process, you will be able to find a lawyer to provide the best defense or support as your case continues to advance.

The first key point to keep in mind is to not settle for the first attorney you meet. Make a list of local attorneys and try to call or meet with each one. This will help you narrow down your list to the one with the best qualifications, and who you feel will do the best job. It is important to remember that initial consultations are only a few minutes in length and may require a fee. Be sure to ask prospective attorneys about their experience in cases relative to your case and write down everything they say so that you can reference it when making your decision.

After you meet with an attorney and before you decide to hire the best suited attorney, you will want to ask yourself a few questions. First of all, will you be comfortable working with the lawyer? Are you able to pay their fee? Do you and the attorney agree on the goals of the case moving forward? In the end, you want to hire an attorney that will provide you with the best representation. Do your research so that you don’t have to go through the next steps of your case unprepared. FULL POST

Your Personal Tax Return/IRS Form 1040 is Due April 15th for the 2013 Tax Year

If you have not yet met with your CPA to get your taxes done you will want to do so this week as those who are any later than that run GREAT risk of having their returns completed after the 4-15-14 due date.

In the event there is no way for whatever reason the IRS does grant an automatic 6 month extension or until Oct. 15th to file.

Inside the HR Toolbox

An important part of every business is the human resource department. The HR department is in charge of managing many important functions of the business. An effective and well-equipped human resource department can help streamline the hiring and firing process, saving the business both time and money.

What is Human Resources

Human Resources, or HR for short, is a department within an organization or business that is in charge of managing employees. The HR department is generally in charge of hiring new employees and providing assistance for existing employees. This can include such complicated topics as pay systems, developing policies and employee training.

Human Resource Tools for Better HR

Since the HR department is in charge of managing so many tasks, human resource tools can prove to be very helpful. Many of the tools will have to do with the hiring process for new employees, including resume management, applicant tracking and recruitment software. These HR tools can make it easier to eliminate unqualified candidates and help recruit potential employees from all over.

Other human resource tools can be used to manage existing employees. A workforce HR tool has the potential to help analyze employee performance and conduct employee reviews. This can assist the HR department when deciding to eliminate a specific position or unproductive employee.. FULL POST
