Best Practices
Bgpic10102011040523 l We spend so much time having fun with business practices that may not be the best - no matter our industry or business niche - that I thought it would be fun and instructive to have a POSITIVE group identifying: -- When we see a company or person employing what we consider to be "best practices" in what they do. -- Photos that show careful work with the best products available. -- Someone or some business that obviously cares about their work, and employs the Golden Rule in their business. We spend a lot of time teaching each other by posting about things that are not done right. And while that might be fun or instructive in its own way, things that ARE DONE RIGHT can be very instructive too. How about some feel-good posts about people, places, practices and things! Have fun! Share with us all, no matter what your business may be!
