WHAT'S IN A NAME? PART I

What's in a name? This is a question we seldom ask ourselves. I was lucky to have visited the U.S.A. and have lived in Mexico; two North American territories. I have heard so many names and seen so many faces that it is unbelievable!

I can safely speak for most Jamaicans that whenever they hear a particular first and last name combination they immediately picture a certain face, complexion, attire, among other descriptive elements. Who do you picture when you hear these names? Please leave your description in the comments section.

Keep in mind you spend most of your day with these people so eventually you will find the need to confide in an individual who is willing to listen and who shows empathy and compassion. You might discuss situations at home or situations at work, whether it be good or bad. But how trusting can you be that whoever you confide in will use that information against you in order to advance professionally? Especially if you are in an extremely competitive job.
