"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change." - Charles Darwin

In today's social media and web filled world, the business climate seems to change faster than ever before. It becomes increasingly important to stay abreast of emerging technology, business protocols and best practices. Be willing to learn new things, and be willing to change what you thought you already mastered. -Amy
