warrants, the suspects stole more than $50,000 worth of beauty, dental care,

charges against these individuals in connection with shoplifting products from
nearly 100 Florida grocery stores," said Bondi. Each time, between $100 to
$1,400 worth of products was allegedly stolen including whitening dental strips,
electronic toothbrushes, shaving razors, allergy medicines, batteries and more.

4 Ways to Turn Anxiety into Confidence
Facing the fear of the unknown is hard. We trick ourselves into thinking the

Loyalty is one of the most precious values there is and a loyal
team that's unified in its goals and objectives, even in defeat, is strong and
supportive. Loyal teams can make the largest tasks seem effortless and they
create a sense of ownership of family that inspires individual performance and
comforts individual failure. Earned slowly and grown daily, loyalty is a
commodity no leader can be without because it fuels success, unifies purpose,
and gives birth to exceptional performance. Without loyalty, teams splinter and
lose focus on the true objectives. It's rare to build a truly loyal team and
it's incredibly difficult to keep them together long term with private agendas
always pressuring the balance. And yes, even loyal teams require balancing
because at the end of the day it's always about personal agendas. Professional
sports teams are constantly looking for that balance and the right players to
fit as a team and the same holds true in business. With the right team, anything
is possible and conversely one team member can destroy the entire balance. So
being a team player is important even when you decide not to be.
