I Learned My Lesson: Not Every Hat Looks Good On Me

By |March 22nd, 2016|

Here’s the thing about business owners (myself included): we just need to get things done. We will dig in, figure things out and knock those to-do’s off of our lists. Most of the time, we’re on our own. Sure, we have family and friends to talk to – sometimes business partners and employees even. But […]

By |October 20th, 2015|

The law is the backbone of every business.  Most small business owners don’t think of the law in this way.  They usually think of the law only when they are facing a lawsuit.

The Importance of Being Written: The Operating Agreement

By |September 14th, 2015|

One thing I’ve drafted consistently throughout my years in practice has been Operating Agreements. I love them.
