Is it ever okay to regift, as in giving a gift you have acquired to someone else? Many websites address this delicate topic, but, in the professional world, I think the answer is simple. Regift your knowledge. The beauty of it is, as the giver, you retain something valuable, but others receive value, too.
When I started in the Purchasing Card arena more than 16 years ago, I had no prior card experience, so I embarked on a quest for knowledge. Fortunately, I encountered many people who were willing to spend time teaching me about things relevant to P-Card program management. Knowledge sharing is something we can all do (see related blog post on leadership). It is what drove me to launch this company last January.
Part of the mission of Recharged Education is making Commercial Card education readily accessible to all at little to no cost. The industry as a whole is stronger when end-users, providers and suppliers possess the fundamentals to help make card programs successful.
I’m excited to wrap up the year with more than 30 posts to the P-Cards Refocused blog and other free education on many different topics. Go ahead and regift the Recharged Education URL (www.recharged-education.com) to other industry professionals! I look forward to expanding the offerings in 2015.
