  • What are other actions you take to make sure the person in front of you is really okay, not just going through the motions?  
  • Our mission at Talent Plus is to create a better world and we do that through relationships. Relationships is the plus in our company name and is defined as “the reaction a person has to the existence of another individual.” Let people know they are recognized and that they exist, and you will make an ongoing, positive difference in the lives of everyone you encounter. 
  • What if we lived our lives with this spirit in our hearts every day 

Here’s to good health, happiness, safe travels, and love overflowing to you and all those you care about around the globe, Mark
