I certainly have the coffee I purchased sitting next to me – however, what I REALLY wanted was that…and much more. Are you certain that your organization is offering what your customers crave? Sure, the Starbucks example has been used way too often – but you have to admit that they DO understand that what their customers crave isn’t merely a cup of coffee, no... (more)

WASHINGTON, April 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Legendary golfer and philanthropist Byron Nelson's nomination for the Congressional Gold Medal moves to the U.S. Senate this week.
