71. Keeping Families ‘FIT’ -

There are few situations as stressful as being a homeless pregnant mother, wandering weary, hungry and often hopeless from one shelter to the next with young children in tow.

78. Nobody Ever Washed a Rental Car -

Management philosophies are debated and written about, but I can tell you which one works best in small business: treating everyone differently.

This is the opposite of the treatment given in America in everything from airport screening to marriage rights. The only goal of that approach is to make sure nobody is slighted, that everything is “fair” for everyone, that everyone is treated the same. The problem is that businesses have a much higher performance bar than that in order to thrive.

98. Here Comes the Sun: Memphis’ cut of the state’s solar energy plan -

The Sharp Manufacturing plant in Hickory Hill has always been a symbol as much as a working part of the city’s economic infrastructure.
