    Friday, December 1, 2017 12:01 AM
    Reman U is a place for stories. This post is no exception, but I’m going to go slightly off-script and start by telling you the moral to this story: Most businesses hurt their relationships with customers because they don’t apply the same project management skills that they use in the shop when working with them.

  • Finances: Dealing with the Money
    Sunday, October 1, 2017 12:00 AM
    No matter what the product or service might be, and no matter how large or small the company, the goal is always the same: to make a good profit. Profit dollars drive everything.

    Friday, March 10, 2017 10:19 AM
    You are a unique individual. There is no one else exactly like you in the entire world. The way you look and act, the way you think and feel, they are all yours. You have certain strengths and weaknesses that have helped and or hindered you your whole life.
