During this time, nature and wildlife begin to prune and retreat as they brace for colder months. It is the simple act of assessing where they are and reviewing what they need to progress to the next season. The same is true for all of us as September is also, Self-improvement month. A time when we reflect on our preassigned personal goals to measure their success and realign our path towards it. But don’t worry; if you haven’t any outstanding 2022 resolutions or miscellaneous goals to compare, here are a few you can tackle through the end of the year, and best of all, your company may pay for it.

Ever Wonder What’s Involved in Opening a Goodwill Store?

While Goodwill stores operate in a very similar manner to most retail operations, we do have some unique jobs and processes. But at the end of the day, what makes Goodwill different from virtually any other retailer is that 91 cents out of every dollar we earn is funneled back into our mission services: providing free job training, education, and employment programs for people with disadvantages and disabilities.
