Many of us would agree that the recipe for a successful business and loyal customers requires a number of key ingredients including product, price, quality, consistency and environment. And, even if this mix is perfect, without great service, a business is at risk of losing customers to its competitors. Quality of service is the most important ingredient.
As we begin another school year, I am reminded of a quote by Jonathan Kozol who wrote, “A dream does not die on its own. A dream is vanquished by the choices ordinary people make about real things in their own lives.”
Our state is taking a beating over our nation’s broken immigration system. Unfortunately, we’re hearing a lot of rhetoric and campaign pandering on this issue. Here’s the truth: securing the border is about more than guards and fencing.
Let’s face it: the best antidote for a sweltering summer day is a dive in the swimming pool. Metropolitan Phoenix boasts more than 400,000 swimming pools, proof that we love nothing more than a refreshing dip as the temperatures climb.
