Posted by Sarah Coish on Thu, Mar 12, 2015 @ 03:21 PM

Business speaker and author Simon Sinek once said, “Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we care about is called passion”.

Words like “custom” or “personalized” are commonly offered with products, often free of charge.

Paying It Forward Through SAP Business One

Posted by Sarah Coish on Thu, Mar 05, 2015 @ 11:49 AM
