What's the best thing you've learned from a bad boss? ...professionally or personally. About yourself or about others.
Why are you the man or woman for the job? During my career I have been the person asking this question and the person answering it, and in my humble opinion both sides are seeking the same thing: the defining factor.

Stability makes a job good, and lack of communication makes it poor. I think having flexible schedules and assignment based productivity would be the most productive work environment for me.

Nothing. I'm going for my dream now. :) And, anything I need I believe I can get with prayer, networking, some small investments, and simply being resourceful. We get to the top of the mountain one foot at a time, right? It'd sure be easier to hire people to help me, though! :)
If you were given 2 times your highest salary, what SINGLE next thing would you need to go for your dream?
The SINGLE next thing I would need to go for my dream would be a financial planner, my ultimate dream is financial independence. I am a single male so the bulk of that income would be invested so my money could work for me while I work for my current organization.
