Do You Work with Lazy Consultants?

I find it hard to believe how often I see small businesses and more importantly people who would work for small business who have no problem stealing from others.
Entrepreneur Magazine is a great resource for start ups and businesses looking to get some quick tidbits of info and knowledge.
They have a pretty standard Terms of Service for their publication you can find here:
I've seen local and now not-so-local "consultants" pushing their material as if it was their own.
It's hard to believe we haven't gotten past the days when cut-n-paste enabled plagiarism wasn't eliminated, but I guess with so much out there, it is hard for a publisher to protect themselves.
But then again, maybe you ought not to do business with someone too self-involved to give credit to another or just too lazy?
Either way, take a look at the work of who you are working with to make sure they are not essentially thieves. If they can do it someone else, who says they won't do it to you?

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace?

This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

Being a Parent

While back, I wrote a post on Father's day about being a father and how being a parent is a job. I wistfully look back as I look forward to another school year quickly approaching and the evidence of my "work" is becoming less and less my handiwork. Our youngest has just moved on to middle school. Josh has moved into high school and the oldest has graduated from high school and about "start" her life. We've had a tacit arrangement with the kids. We do NOT want boomerang kids coming back to haunt us. So they have always been told, they are staying with us until they are REALLY ready to go out and that includes the joke that college has become. Sadly, despite the fact that I have spent a good chunk of my career working in higher education, I know that it is a folly to think that sending a child off to college is preparing them for much other than to have a lifetime of loans. Thankfully, Amanda has gotten the message. She has a plan to go to local c
