Choosing the Right Partner for Your Network Marketing Business-Part 5

Oh yes, there’s more.  So it’s not enough that I didn’t know the business, that I was fronting the money, and that we couldn’t agree on basic decisions.  Amazing how blind we can become whether the prospect of “easy profits” lays tantalizingly before us. Here was the final straw: The needs of one partner were […]

No Porn at Work. Can I Make It Any Clearer?

Post image for No Porn at Work.  Can I Make It Any Clearer?

Like this is news? But it seems that some employees just don’t get it (no pun intended). A recent 2nd Circuit case, Patane v. Clark and Fordham University, held that even viewing porn in one’s office (a somewhat private place) is a no-no. In Patane, Professor Clark watched hard-core S/M tapes on the VCR in his […]

When Women Entrepreneurs “Tip the Scale”

After reading some stats on the growth of women-owned companies, I was tempted to get depressed. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce (2010), 88% of all women business owners are sole proprietorships without employees. 80% of all women-owned businesses earn less than $50,000.  (It’s not so fabulous for men-owned businesses either: 77% for ownership […]

How the Grinch Stole My Online Articles

Like the Grinch stealing Christmas, there’s theft afoot–of online articles. For anyone submitting articles to online directories like EZine Articles, this could have a definite bearing on your intellectual property.  According to my colleague, Dee Middlebrooks-Bernal, Editor-in-Chief of VA Today Magazine, she learned that several websites had reprinted her articles without giving her author credit.

Curious about what she would find when she checked Yahoo’s search engine, she typed in her name and hit “enter.” What she found upset her greatly.

Yes, Virginia—You Can Scale a Service Business

“Clever people and grocers weigh everything,” said Zorba the Greek.  So do service business owners when it comes to growing revenues.  “Do I want more?” they ask themselves. “Of course!  There’s the mortgage. The kids’ college fund. Mom’s medical expenses. And that bucket list trip to Tahiti!” Yet surely as the sun sets over Bora […]

What do clients want, really?

I came across an old post by Roger Glovsky, the Virtual Lawyer, that asked the age-old question, “What do clients want?” (And no, almost surprisingly, “perfection” is not the answer) Seems, attorneys would do well to put the shoe on the other foot.  We’re so used to brandishing our exceptional intellectual prowess as a way […]
