This Week's Motivational Moment!
THE ECONOMIC BENEFITS FROM AN EDUCATION
The United States Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics just released their analysis of educational attainment comparing weekly earnings & jobless rates for 2018.
What they found is that the same inverse relationship held once again last year: earnings rise with greater levels of education while the chances of being out of work fall.

** When the economy slows or heads into recession, those are also the periods hardest on those with the least education.
PART II: SUPPLEMENTAL TO ACHIEVING SUCCESS GIVEN AN EDUCATION
There is something else that is very important to success in the United States besides acquiring an education and it is so simple, that it's revolutionary. The fact is, the formula or principle is misunderstood enough, or overlooked enough, that it can be called magic by those who understand it. Ready? Here it is.
You surpass 50 percent of the people in America by working hard - going that extra mile. You beat another 40 percent by being a person of honesty and integrity and standing for something (see our front office bulletin board for March above). The last 10 percent is competition in the free enterprise system where the more education you have, the better are your odds of success.
Enjoy the rest of your week and our gorgeous spring weather!
