Counteroffer Acceptance: Road to Career Ruin by Paul Hawkinson Matthew Henry, the 17th century writer said, “Many a dangerous temptation comes to us in fine gay colors that are but skin deep.” The same can be said for counteroffers, those magnetic enticements designed to lure you back into the nest after you've decided it's time to fly away. The litany of horror stories I've come across in my years as an executive recruiter, consultant and publisher, provides a litmus test that clearly indicates counteroffers should never be accepted . . . EVER! I define a counteroffer simply as an inducement from your current employer to get you to stay after you've announced your intention to take another job. We're not talking about those instances when you receive an offer but don't tell your boss. Nor are we discussing offers that you never intended to take, yet tell your employer about anyway as a “”they-want-me-but-I'mwith-you” ploy. These are merely astute positioning tactics you may choose to use to reinforce your worth by letting your boss know you have other options. Mention of a true offer, however, carries an actual threat to quit. Interviews with employers who make counteroffers, and employees who accept them, have shown that as tempting as they may be, acceptance may cause career suicide. During the past 20 years, I've seen only isolated incidents in which an accepted counteroffer has benefited the employee. Consider the problem in its proper perspective. What really goes through a boss's mind when someone quits?
The person whose imperfections don’t matter, and who accepts you with all your limitations is hard to find, but when Cupid strikes you with the right arrow it means that true love is by your side.

The late '80s and '90s were a great time for sports cars. This was the golden age of vehicle design, when manufacturers were just coming into tune with what drivers really wanted. They wanted a great combination of technology, power, and handling. During this time, the Japanese were coming out with vehicles that included as many gadgets and technological advances as they could throw at their cars in an attempt to woe their target audiences into purchasing their cars above their rival's cars. Advances such as ABS, TCS, turbochargers, on-the-fly adjustability, and many other bells and whistles were being introduced to the public for the first time, and it was all incredibly exciting. But the Japanese were separating themselves from other developers in that they never forgot to inject the true passion for driving that needed to be communicated directly to the drivers of their vehicles. The body designs were so beautiful that when you saw them, you would’t forget ...

Makita Corporation – 90 years of exceeding customers’ expectations The Makita Corporation was founded in 1915 to make electric motors and has been exceeding the expectations of our customers for quality and reliability ever since. Landmarks along the way to becoming the world’s No1 manufacturer of professional power tools, included making the firstcordless drill that gave sufficient performance, and was tough enough for professionals to use. The concept of toughness (or fitness for purpose) inculcates all Makita’s design philosophies. Makita engineers visit end-users all over the world to talk to them about their needs and the way they use our tools. Makita’s involvement in Outdoor Power Equipment really started when they took over Dolmar GmbH, Hamburg in 1991. This famous manufacturer of petrol chainsaws had been through a number of corporate owners, and was left with a badly under-invested factory, but a proud record for innovative design and hard-wearing tools. Makita Corporation has invested massively in the Hamburg factory so it now represents the true pinnacle of manufacturing excellence. The factory continues to demonstrate that they have retained all their old design skills by making some very significant improvements to the Makita Petrol Cutter (see page 50), massively improving the air-filtration and service life of this machine, which is used in the most inhospitable environments. Makita were flattered, but not surprised, when the established market leader embodied most of these improvements in their own latest model. Makita’s involvement in the professional power tool market saw them taking early leadership in the fight against Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome and Makita has pioneered various means of radically reducing vibration in Outdoor Powered Equipment as well as power tools. For example, the RBC421L 40cc Brushcutter (see page 28) has such low vibration, it can be safely used constantly for 8 hours. Building on this heritage of design and manufacturing excellence, Makita now offer a complete portfolio of Outdoor Powered Equipment to meet the needs of all levels of end user, from professional tree surgeons, landscapers and local authorities, through to end users whose gardening needs demand tools which are amongst the toughest and most reliable in the world.

You may have heard that IRAs and employer-sponsored plans (e.g., 401(k)s) are the best ways to invest for retirement. That's true for many people, but what if you've maxed out your contributions to those accounts and want to save more? An annuity may be a good investment to look into.
