EXCLUSIVE: Wawa Reveals How to Survive a Recession

By Barbara Grondin Francella

MEDIA, Pa. -- In its 60-year history, the convenience store industry has weathered recessions, regional slow downs and back-to-back big-chain bankruptcies. But few retailers were as well positioned as they could be when the current financial meltdown started.

The management team at Wawa Inc. saw the storm clouds forming, and unlike other industry colleagues, proactively set about preparing for the worst.

New Year's Resolution...

This is the time of year that gets everyone thinking about getting in shape or trying to stick to a new workout regimen. I would suggest that you start with small attainable goals, and reward yourself each time you achieve one of your goals. It could be as simple as adding a 15 minute power walk to your lunch hour, or getting to a spin/Pilates class once a week. Make the rewards healthy “treats”. For example, after 2 full weeks of lunchtime walks, you give yourself a pedicure…etc. If you reward… Continue

Gym Class Hero

A few days ago my daughter came home from school without her coat.

“Is it on the bus?” I asked her.


“Did you leave it at gymnastics?”


And so on.

I also asked her a bunch of times if she had checked the school’s Lost and Found.

To which she rolled here eyes and replied:

“Mom, I didn’t have the time.”

The life of a first grader is just so hectic.


Today I… Continue

Why You Can't Pull a Fast One on a Headband-Wearing Six-Year-Old

A bit of background.

My daughter started wearing headbands when she was three.

And by started wearing, I mean has been completely obsessed with.

Seriously. She has not gone for more than five minutes a day (if that) without a headband in the last THREE YEARS.

True story.

She wears them in the pool. To gymnastics. During soccer. In bed at night.

She even ended up with a staph infection once behind her right ear, after her headband… Continue

About Last Night

Saw me wearing my baseball hat and sunglasses today did you?

Nope. Not hungover.

(I wish)

So what did happen last night?

Here’s a recap.

7 pm:

Take 3-year-old up to bed. Wash hands. Brush teeth. Change into PJs.

Make no attempt to match the top with the bottom.

Because. That’s why.

I Wish I Had a Crystal Ball [Part 1]

At the end of each year, I sit down and do several things to prepare my company for the upcoming year. One is list out goals for the company and for myself. Another is to create a sales forecast. In the final weeks of 2008, as I was trying my best to prepare a 2009 sales forecast, I found myself wishing for one thing - a crystal ball. So many variables are making any sort of prediction near impossible. Is anyone else having a hard time?

Read the rest… Continue

Arbonnne Independent Consultant

My name is Terri Rizzi and I am a Breast Cancer Survior. I watch everything that goes into my body and what I put on my skin. Why, you ask because I believe that you are what you eat and your skin eats too. So a couple of months ago I joined Arbonne. I tried the product of skin care about a year ago and liked it very much, but never ordered after that; you know how life gets in the way of everything. So back in July I went to a demo at a friends house… Continue

Can you explain the process for finding a nanny or housekeeper?

When a client calls we ask for a full description of the position to fill. From the initial discussion, we generally have a very good feel for the type of person the client is looking for. We then select 2-3 applicants who we believe are best suited for the position and have them speak directly to the client. Based on the conversation, the client and potential…
