Personal Development

"I am a recent new comer to mftrou, although having been a people manager for many years. I have to say it is the BEST motivational site I have ever come across. It doesn't necessarily have anything "new" but it always reminds me that there is so much more I can do for, and with, my people. Keep up the amazing work and thank you!!!!!"
