Today marks a bit of a sad day for my team and I, as two of my team members say farewell and step out onto their own paths to independent financial success.
Tim, who I wrote about here, and Shane, who has worked as a content provider and has been an excellent source of ideas (and the vast majority of pop culture references) found across this blog, are leaving us at the end of this month to pursue their own Personal Independent Earnings with their own…Continue Reading
You hear about it almost every day. Another company faced with a multi-million dollar lawsuit, brought forth by a former customer or employee.

I talk a lot about the importance of having a good team working with you. And with good reason. While there are plenty of business ventures you can undertake completely by yourself, most will require you to work with others in one form or another, and having a team as a part of your business (or businesses) is a smart move for a huge number of reasons.
