    The explosive event at Halemaumau Crater’s lava lake on Aug. 6 was the latest in a series that began in 2008. It is useful to view the event in the context of the entire series and to consider if another is likely.

    Businesses, and especially small businesses, live and die by virtue of the quality of the people they employ. I always tell small business owners that their employees are both their biggest assets and also potentially their biggest threats to their survival. Bad customer service and incompetence in providing what it is you say you are selling are impressions that travel fast and are hard to erase. The mirror images of these are excellent customer service and skill in doing a job, which are a business’ best marketing tools. That’s what keeps customers coming back, whether you are selling a service or a product, and that word of mouth also travels, especially along the coconut wireless.
