Do You Have a Publicly Traded Company?

Any stock exchange in the world will tell you that it is always best to have a Do You Have a Publicly Traded Company?well traded company, with a decent to high price on your stock, as well as plenty of action. It does not do anyone any good if your stock is priced high but deserted. Well, this is true to some extent, but now that we are in the days of actual reporting of insider trading (as opposed to the “insider trading” allegedly known by reporters at the turn of the century) due to technology and online accounts, it is pretty easy to look up a company’s inside dealings and financial reports and to found out the actual health of the organization.

Whether or not you have a publicly traded company or trade in stocks yourself, there are a few basics which outlast any other trading or company evaluation strategy in the current market. “Keep it simple,” is still one of the best mottos around.

Number one, insider buying is always an indicator of the stock going up in the future, even if the insider buying is a ploy to get others to buy. By the same token, insider selling should indicate the stock going down in the future. It may not go down right away, but as soon as you know about it: that would be a good time to start planning.

Number two, a steady stock is a much safer investment for long term income investors than the kind that spikes and falls. Spiking stock may be good for arbitrators, provided they understand how to do this process, but long term income investment is most benefitted from low but consistent dividends and steadily maintained stock.

Number three, if you ARE into long term income investing, it is best to know how to evaluate a business as if you are going to buy it. After all, if you are into it for the long haul, then you really are buying it, if but a small part of it.

These basic principles are in the most simplistic terms, but they pack a lot of punch in the real world. CMM Technology believes in investing in our own business and keeping our value as high as possible through lowering the cost of drug and alcohol testing and offering LifeLoc FC10 personal breathalyser devices and Oraline saliva drug tests at reasonable, and sustainable, prices. We want drug and alcohol test prices to lower and stabilize just as much as you do. You are our investors. Call CMM Technology today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

When to Apologize

When to ApologizeApologizing is hard to do (duh!), but it is necessary sometimes. Unfortunately, lower level employees do not always know when or how they should apologize and the two inevitable results are either the cold heartless so & so’s who have too much pride or the sniveling groveling doormats who take responsibility for things they had nothing to do with. It is, unfortunately, a cycle which is destined to repeat itself, since it is something which lower level employees are very inexperienced in.

The time to apologize happens approximately thirty minutes to two hours after the deed is done. Why not apologize as soon as you have messed up? Frequently, your victim feels a rush of emotional upset or anger or intolerance spiking right after you have committed your mistake, and this means that your heartfelt and profuse apologies will fall on deaf ears during this time. Rather than deplete your own energy, just wait a short while, and then proceed to soften the blow.

In the meantime, damage control can be very helpful in long term forgiveness. The time for action is right after you have made your mistake and, if anyone else is a part of the mistake or the solution process, get them involved immediately. If you can physically clean up or make up for what you have done, get to work on fixing things right away. However, this clean up process should NOT get in the way of the apologizing at the right moment. There have been numerous occasions of the perpetrator spending far too much time cleaning up before they make their actions known to their victim and, in the meantime, they have been replaced by someone who is also doing the same job. Save everyone time and get things done appropriately. You can finish cleaning up or completing your task after the apology has been made and the other person has been told what you are doing to make up for it.

Lastly, never apologize if you have yet to figure out just exactly what you have done wrong. Even if you have a gnawing feeling in the pit of your stomach, first identify what you actually did wrong, separate fact from fiction, then go about correcting the problem. If, however, you feel no guilt, sit down and think about why not. Perhaps the other person lashed out in a moment of temper or frustration and you have nothing to feel guilty about. In this case, simply go quietly about your work.

At CMM Technology, our goal is to make your business as mistake free as possible. This includes regular drug and alcohol testing, at reasonable drug and alcohol test prices. Try our Oraline saliva drug tests, our Lion Alcoblow breathalysers, and our Medix Urine drug tests. The cost of drug and alcohol testing does not have to be sacrificed for the sake of quality.

The Little Things in Time Management

The Little Things in Time ManagementTime management involves keeping track of and manipulating how you use your time, especially during specific times of the day. For example, when time management is most aptly used is in the morning between waking up and leaving for work, during the professional day from the beginning of work to lunch time, from lunch time to the end of work, and from arriving home to going to bed. These four major time segments of the day are the most important targets for time management strategies. Time saving devices like doing two things at once, multi-tasking, delegating certain tasks to other people, skipping parts of the whole process, and so on, are recommended to everyone who wants to save time.

But, what is time saving really? It cannot be just cramming more stuff into the same segment of time. That is not living. In order to get more accomplished as adults, do we just need to learn how to work at double speed? This seems unreasonable, because not everyone has the ability or the desire to just speed up their life as they continue on. For this reason, time management…true time management…cannot be seen in this manner.

The solution is in finding out what you “need” to do, what you “have” to do, and then cutting out those activities from your life as much as possible. True time management comes when people do what they WANT to do, and eliminate other things absolutely as much as possible in their own lives. That is where time itself actually becomes more valuable.

Increasing the worth of time, rather than trying to decrease the time taken to do things, is what typifies time management. In order for you to accomplish this, streamlining of certain tasks is useful. In drug and alcohol screening, a business streamlines and scientifically backs up the process of employee evaluation. After all, when it comes to drug abuse or alcoholism, an employee is either following company policy or not. At CMM Technology, we believe in increasing the worth of your company time by streamlining this process. Our high quality drug tests, Oraline saliva tests, Lion SD 500 breathalysers, and LifeLoc FC10 personal breathalyser devices are ready to be shipped to you.

The Art of Sitting Still and Waiting

In Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, the author describes how a stockThe Art of Sitting Still and Waiting speculator is much more likely to make money and to actually keep it if they learn how to sit still. Throughout this very informative narrative text, the author describes his experience on Wall Street around the turn of the century. That would be the last century, not the more recent one. Anyway, the book describes his experiences from age fourteen into his later years, going into heavy detail about human nature and emotional frailty and the influences of men.

There is an art to sitting still and waiting. It is almost a godlike quality, to be able to do this. Human nature rebels against this quality, since it demands that we use wisdom rather than unnatural methods. Sitting still and waiting breeds character in that it requires the human to be discerning as to WHY they are not charging forward with action right away. There is a subtlety to timing. Correct timing is the key to making sure that things go off smoothly and as they should. In the book mentioned above, sometimes the stock operator would sit and watch the markets for weeks or months on end without doing anything. If the market was not right for trading, then it would be unwise and therefore a waste of money to trade during that time.

Doesn’t this principle ring true for different areas of your life? Whenever you have tried to use unnatural methods before their time, doesn’t the result become much worse than if you had just let it be? Sometimes faith is not so much a belief in a higher power, but in the timing of nature and goodness.

To keep your business timed correctly, use drug and alcohol testing on your employees. CMM Technology is one of the alcohol and drug testing equipment suppliers in Australia. Our drug and alcohol test prices are reasonable, and we ship whenever you need us to.

Stability of the Home Front

Stability of the Home FrontWhen you own or manage a business in Australia, you must be able to effectively weather any difficult employee, business, national or economic storms which may come upon you. For this, you will need highly emotionally intelligent and stable employees working for you, so that they do not scatter like the wind as soon as trouble appears on the horizon. You must be capable of really handpicking your employees so that you can ensure their loyalty and stability during high times of stress and pressure, especially when their wages are low or the economic downturn globally affects their bonuses or pay raises. Stability does not start on the government or national level, but right here in your business, on the home front. It begins with your careful selection of high quality employees, of your careful selection of a stable and long lasting business plan, and of your innate ability to lead your employees to new and greater heights when there seems to be no hope on the horizon.

There is an innate ability to see what is strong and what is weak, both in people and in businesses. This ability gives every person on earth insight into how to invest their time and energy and what to expect from the quality of an organization. Companies which regularly test their employees for drugs and alcohol are sending the message, “We value you, and we want you to be safe and stable for our healthy organization.” CMM Technology provides testing equipment and drug and alcohol test prices at our company are well thought out. We specifically price everything so that it has the maximum benefit for you. We want you to be happy with your purchase!

The cost of drug and alcohol testing has risen along with the cost of doing every other kind of business, but at CMM Technology, we believe in maintaining our low prices and serving quality as well as quantity. We supply Medix drug test kits for your drug testing needs, and we supply LifeLoc FC10 personal breathalyser devices for your alcohol testing needs.

Separation of Money and Responsibilities

Money is a sensitive subject to a lot of people and the lower their ownSeparation of Money and Responsibilities emotional intelligence, the more sensitive they are about it. Money itself bears ties with emotional maturity, and these ties see to it that the most mature have the most wealth, and those with the most wealth are required to exercise the most maturity.

An interesting phenomenon has occurred here in the twenty first century. People have to deal with direct money less and less. Instead of being paid in cash, and then purchasing things they need in cash, all of their purchases go through online bank accounts, online credit card statements, and even physically handling paper bills has become obsolete. Now, the connection with money and the inherent responsibility thereof are severed, stretched and distorted from our lives. We cease to think of money as an asset and as a material object which we obtain in exchange for goods or services, but rather as an ethereal subject which wavers incoherently between shopkeepers and customers.

In fact, money is such a forbidden substance that, if at all possible, those with low emotional intelligence avoid the subject or the judicious use thereof as much as possible. This is a bad thing, since your employees must understand and have a closer relationship with money. They are expected to receive their paycheck and utilize it in such a way that provides them with a better and growing lifestyle and provides your company with better energy and a growing attitude, instead of a stagnant one.

There was once a time when all an employee had to do was to advance through the ranks of a company until they found their position of greatest strength at which point they would settle down and make a career out of it. In today’s world, we must foster this attitude of growth and personal accountability and excitement for the future through the use of simple and effective company strategies, not the least of which is employee drug and alcohol testing.

Alcohol and drug testing equipment suppliers in Australia have certain and real competition from CMM Technology. Our drug and alcohol test prices are reasonable, our drug tests are high quality, and our Lion SD 500 breathalysers are top of the line.

Sensitivity to Light

Drug TestingLight brings mood changes in people, not just from a visual standpoint, but it also affect circadian rhythms and serotonin and dopamine levels within people. This is because light itself, of any kind whatsoever, tells us that we are awake and that it is daytime and that our serotonin and dopamine regulators need to start working for our everyday lives. Some people are sensitive to specific types or wavelengths of light, but again this is a specific issue. Light itself is always appreciated and few people are sensitive to basic lighting. What about the people who are, though?

This phenomenon occurs when the brain becomes so used to darkness that it begins rewiring itself for darkness. This is simply a form of adaptation that our facile and extremely versatile brains use to accommodate us to our surroundings. Over time, this hardwiring for darkness within the brain can become longer lasting and even permanent, but remember that things in the brain are not really permanent, but simply adapted to short term or long term changes depending upon your needs.

Individuals who regularly use drugs or alcohol, even to a small degree, become very sensitive to light. Since light engages parts of the brain associated with a well rounded personality and positive life experience and interacting with other people, it is understandable that abuse and light sensitivity go hand in hand. Interestingly, the reverse process is true. Since light deprivation decreases the individual’s ability to turn on their serotonin and dopamine receptors, these people are actually more likely to resort to drug abuse or alcoholism in order to receive some high in their lives.

While sensitivity to light is not the be all end all to evaluation of a person’s sanity, it can be a real factor in that, and so it should be considered, along with other factors which affect these neurotransmitters. CMM Technology recommends engaging your company in employee drug and alcohol testing as part of this compensation. Drug and alcohol test prices decrease from year to year, and the cost of drug and alcohol testing is low due to technological advances. Our Lion SD 500 and LifeLoc FC10 personal breathalyser devices are proof of this. Call us today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Selling Out

Selling out can be a very relative term, subjective to the opinions of manyDrug Test people. However, the basic definition is that of replacing quality with more temporary income. This can result in short term gains for the company, but not long term profits. In other words, selling out is a way to act like a child, whereas long term investment in the company is adult behavior. This is the cinch of the matter, although selling out itself remains a relative term. In the business world, selling out can refer to many things, including the absence of drug and alcohol screening in order to keep prices and expenses down. In the short term, not implementing drug testing will benefit revenue, but in the long run, it will decrease safety, affect productivity, and cost the company several thousand times what it saved. In short, selling out gets the job done for today, but steals from tomorrow to do it.

Drug and alcohol test prices for companies have been the determining factor for many years. They determine how much investment the company is willing to put into testing. However, the cost of drug and alcohol testing should not be the only determining factor. As with the subject of selling out, without long term investment, you are not likely to receive high quality long term results. It is therefore important to keep your employee drug and alcohol testing intact and with the highest quality testing products and services available. To reduce the quality of your drug and alcohol testing program is to put a nick in the foundation of your business itself. It is necessary, therefore, to look further in the future and plan for it and sink effort and energy into it.

Selling out can also occur in the quality of the drug testing products which you order. For example, you may receive cheap, unreliable drug tests in exchange for less money. At CMM Technology, we value your long term business and we sell only the best products. Check out our LifeLoc FC10 personal breathalyser devices, our Lion SD 500 devices, and our Medix drug testing kits.

Self Respect and Attracting Clientele

Self Respect and Attracting ClienteleSelf respect is the absolute best way that you can sell yourself to clients and business associates at any point in time. While self confidence is touted as the number one seller, self respect actually gives you an internal feeling of self worth, personal boundaries, and realization of just exactly how much crap you are willing to take in a business deal. This respect for yourself shows quite clearly to potential customers or clientele, and it demands a certain amount of attention and respect from them, as well.

Now, wait a minute, this does not always mean that you receive business. Why is this so? Well, not everyone is prepared to continually, for more than a few days at a time, give you the respect that you are demanding. This is not the time to start giving in and settling for something less. Instead, start to alter your entire lifestyle to the point where you are giving yourself enough respect, and then everyone else’s abilities or lack thereof, even in the professional world, will mean less.

Of course, now that your newfound and newly advertised self respect is shining out and bringing in new clientele, you will notice that it will start bringing in an entirely new class of clientele. When this starts happening, allow your schedule and your marketing schemes to relax enough so that, when these high quality clientele begin seeking you out, you are not still imposing your old rules and strategies for client acquisition. That worked for a lower class of client, but now you must allow yourself to change with the times. If you cannot grow and change that much, you will end up attracting what you can handle, which will be the previous type of client.

CMM Technology provides drug testing equipment to businesses throughout Australia and select countries. Try out our Medix equipment, our Lion SD 400 and Lion SD 500 personal breathalyser devices, and the cost of drug and alcohol testing when you are doing business with our company. We have enough self respect to be able to offer you value and high quality products within your price range, no matter what size or level of company you have.

Secrets of the Deep

Human like secrets, and they really like to keep secrets. Secrets, or the Oraline saliva testswithdrawal from saying what is directly on your mind as you are thinking it, are important in both business and personal lives. Of course, many couples tell each other that they do not want any secrets from each other, but this is a slightly inorganic way of going about this process. For example, are you more likely to tell your new spouse or significant other a secret if they are aggressively pulling it out of you, or are you more likely to tell them after some time has passed and they have demonstrated not only their loyalty with your trust but also how they react reasonably well to the news. After all, isn’t that why anyone keeps a secret from their romantic partner; because they are afraid of how the other person will react. This is, of course, a very reasonable concern to have. You do not want to hurt them, but, perhaps even more importantly, you do not want them to think negatively about you. It is this concern over the strength of the relationship and the love for which they bear that causes many secrets to be kept within a couple, or within business partners, or between colleagues.

We cannot be afraid of the truth, and we must take responsibility for the fact that we want the truth, which may not agree with our personal views or desires or hopes for the future. This is why many small businesses do not find themselves testing their employees for alcohol or drugs. There is an innate concern about the business relationship, the friendship, whether or not they will stay, and of course what they think about you for implementing these techniques. Fortunately, the business does not have to grow very large before these fears are put to rest, and employee testing is brought in. To help you with these techniques, CMM Technology provides and supplies companies throughout Australia with Oraline saliva tests, Medix drug test kits, Lion Alcoblow breathalysers, and LifeLoc FC10 personal breathalyser devices. Call us today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Sales of Drug Testing Equipment

Sales of Drug Testing EquipmentAlcohol and drug testing equipment suppliers in Australia are striving to sell high quality drug tests and breathalyser devices with discounts and many other “benefits” which may or may not exist. However, CMM Technology devotes our company to the proper use, calibration and storage of high quality drug tests and breathalysers, like our LifeLoc FC10 personal breathalyser, our Oraline saliva tests, and our Medixurine drug tests. This is our goal: to offer and provide the highest quality drug and alcohol testing equipment that we possibly can.

Sales of drug testing equipment fluctuate depending upon the need of the various clients, as well as the need of the market as a whole. In other words, it depends partly upon how much employee drug testing is being used on a regular basis. Fortunately for us, employee drug and alcohol screening is being used more and more over time, since it is such a scientifically valid way to evaluate and alter company protocol. After all, if you are not aware of which employees may be abusing substances in the workplace, then how can you help and aid your own company in business? You must be aware of your managers and employees and executives, and you must be able to be aware of them. This ability is given to you through the implementation of drug and alcohol testing on the jobsite.

Fortunately, drug and alcohol test prices are extremely reasonable at CMM Technology. We believe in keeping the cost of drug and alcohol testing as low as possible, while also maintaining high quality service. In other words, we believe in delivering value to the customer, while also maintaining that high quality standard that professional businesses expect out of their service and product suppliers.

At CMM Technology, we provide some of the best names in drug and alcohol testing equipment. We provide drug tests, such as Oraline saliva tests, and other drug tests, like MedixIntegrated pro-split cup urine tests. In addition to drug tests, we also carry breathalysers, such as Lion SD 400 and Lion SD 500 and LifeLoc FC10 hand held breathalyser devices. Call CMM Technology today to order your products:(+61) 1300 79 70 30.
