  • To Sell or Not to Sell as a Solo

    June 17, 2019

    Selling a firm is no simple task, especially if you are a sole practitioner. Not every firm is meant to be sold, as not every firm has transferable assets that might appeal to a buyer. Take a look at these aspects of a sale to gauge whether it makes sense to form a long-term sale plan, attempt a more abrupt sale, or simply close the door when the time comes.

  • Managing Our Time, Managing Ourselves

    February 09, 2018

    Clock
    At the beginning of 2017, I wrote a blog post on using the 80/20 Pareto Principle to manage your time. I start this year with a similar post on time management.

  • Setting Achievable Goals for the New Year

    January 03, 2018

    The concept of “New Year’s resolutions” may have a negative connotation for many of us. It is estimated that on average, New Year’s resolutions fail at a rate of close to 80%. The problem is that we create resolutions that are too vague, making them impossible to implement, track, and carry out long-term. They are merely declarations, with no actual substance or thought behind them. Thus why many of these resolutions quickly fall to the wayside.
