Building up others -- making others better -- in the long run is more important than individual wins. Kelly - There is more than one way to skin a cat - be creative at reaching success. Discover and own your strengths -- then exploit them. Quote of the Week: "What you really need to do is figure out what you do well and exploit the heck out of it." -- Teri McKeever
