Greetings! We're on the verge of an exciting transition. No, not the start of spring, but rather the WordMaster's move to social media. As you may already know, we'll be discontinuing our e-mail service at the end of this month in order to provide our readers with WordMaster review editions from the last twelve years exclusively through our accounts on Facebook and Twitter. For more details about these important changes, please see the WordMaster homepage.

And now, about this week: We've brought you a handful of absolutely essential verbs ("action words") for business. There's nothing flashy about these words, but they are solid blue-chip stocks of the business English lexicon, paying generous dividends to those who understand their true value!
