Armada’s Second Adopt-A-Beach Clean-up

The Armada team, our families and friends set out this past weekend to clean our adopted beach, Twin Lakes Beach in Santa Cruz.

This is our second beach clean-up since we have partnered with the Save Our Shores organization last January.

IT’s a small world after all, and no I’m not talking about my kid’s favorite ride at Disneyland.

It's no news flash that the Silicon Valley IT job market is hot right now.  When Time Magazine and the Wall Street Journal are talking about the IT Talent Wars being back “on” in the Silicon Valley, you know we’re currently in a candidate driven market.  Armada’s been seeing a lot of multiple offer situations for higher caliber talent over the last three quarters, and some mild, but not dramatic wage inflation.

Written by
I recently finished reading Tony Hseih’s book “Delivering Happiness.” Tony has done an extraordinary job of articulating the importance of challenges and strategies for creating happiness in work.

Life is work .whether work means your career, your job, your hobbies, your family, your relationships .The balance we seek in “work life balance” is really just about being happy in life.
