Sharing Beyond Books #300 Comment Giveaway April 22, 2017

Hello again and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!

Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Nine of us have found names we liked and some have used them for children or even pets. Five people did not recall any names they liked from books/movies, but two disliked names, rather than liked them.


The Winner from SBB #299 comments is: #8 Rita who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the Updated (**Finally!) ARC/Review titles or (recently updated) Love and Christmas titles - all linked near the end of the post.

**NOTE: I did post an Updated ARC and Other books for Giveaways. I have to go back and list the titles. 
Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.

WEEK #300
(One Question.)
Natalija asks: Which is better, being the boss or an employee??
There are times I think it would be better to be an employee without the responsibilities of being the boss who provides work and pay for others. I would probably earn more than I do running three businesses. But - an employee would not have the flexibility that I have as a boss. Certainly for me having my own businesses works as I can: take the law cases I want; manage the title office to the best of my ability (while providing work for my daughter, her best friend and another young lady from church); and juggle the publishing company with the help of dedicated editors and authors. So, for me, being the boss, or hopefully, a good leader, is better.

  1. I think being a boss is a 24/7 thing. It has its own perks, but it's also a huge responsability that I don't think I'd handle well.

  2. Congrats, Rita!
    I think there is good and bad to both employee and boss titles. I'd rather be a boss though.

  3. both have theirs advantage so i opt to enjoy the situation i'm it and not envy others who could in fact be envying me ^^

  4. I would rather be an employee, when your day is done it's done.

  5. Thank you Martha.

    I think I would like to be the boss.

  6. Congrats Rita. Like you I would think being an employee with less responsibilities. But I'd choose being a boss. Having the flexibility for my hours etc. would be more beneficial.

  7. I'm happy to be an employee. Much less stress.

  8. I think bring the supervisor is the worst---you are between the boss and the employee and catch it from both sides.

  9. I'd prefer being the boss rather than the employee.

  10. I prefer to be an employee. I am not good at managing people

  11. Congrats Rita!
    I think both have their benefits and depending on the job situation one might be better than the other. I think I would prefer to be a boss.

  12. I'd like to try being the boss. Being an employee has more "stability" in certain ways but you also lose a lot in other ways.
