Knowledge = higher earning power

Education is an important part of our growth and continuous improvement.

Recently, the Bureau of Labor Statistics published the 2015 data showing the essential role education
plays throughout our income-earning years.

The highest unemployment rate (8 %) is among workers who haven’t finished high school.
Having a good education pays. Especially in today’s job market.

Learning is an ongoing process
As we all know, the education does not stop once you get out of school.
Education and learning is an ongoing process.
In the current business environment, where the only constant is change, continuous learning is a must.

To succeed we need to keep upgrading our skills.
More education = higher earning power.
Having the right skills gives you more opportunities.
And a chance to have a more flexible work schedule.

This is a nothing new.

Remember the well-known book, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”
Habit number 7 is, “Sharpen the Saw.”

To paraphrase Stephen Covey:

Learning is the habit that makes all the other possible.

Mariana Fieraru, an Eastern European transplant, fell in love with her new home shortly after landing in New York. She "discovered" pizza! Years later she still loves pizza. And so do her two feathered-kids, Sunny and Flipper

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
Its mission: to make learning fun! And easy.

Through its training, consulting, and publications OBI builds bridges of knowledge to take you from where you are to
where you want to go. Using a mix of serious, informal, analytical, and optimistic approach, OBI truly makes learning fun.
