The #1 Tip For Baby Sitters

The #1 Tip For Baby Sitters
When our kids were younger and we got baby sitters, we’d look in to their references and write out a huge list of things for them to consider while we are gone. Now my kids are older and the baby sitter has one main purpose which is to make sure my kids don’t kill each... Read more »

The sure fire way to get your lawyer to call you back

The sure fire way to get your lawyer to call you back
It amazes me how many people call me and tell me that they have a lawyer, but they can never get them to call them back.  Some clients can be a pain in the butt, some need to learn to consolidate their questions more in to one call versus 10 separate calls, but unless you... Read more »

Why is nobody saying that Hope Solo shouldn’t be playing?

Why is nobody saying that Hope Solo shouldn’t be playing?
I am a total soccer nerd.  Such a soccer nerd that I was watching the US women’s national team play Mexico in a friendly this past Thursday night.  And if I hadn’t been home to watch it, I probably would have DVR’d it. The NFL has made a big impact on my son.  Yes the... Read more »

As a teenager, my broke friends and I loved to go to Olive Garden where we could get salad and bread sticks for $5.00.  It was a pour teenagers dream. Of course we all grew up, got exposed to real Italian food and there is nothing you could do to get me to eat their... Read more »

Think before you text

Think before you text
You probably don’t go through your day thinking about everything you do and whether it could be used as evidence against you. But some people should, especially those in high places. A former vice president of Tinder, a mobile dating app, is suing her former company for sexual harassment based on what happened when she... Read more »

Why are so many lawyers bad at business?

Why are so many lawyers bad at business?
Overall, most lawyers I’ve met are smart people. However, many of them are terrible business people. This is especially unfortunate for those who run their own firms. I bring this up because I recently discovered that a friend of mine, a lawyer, was paying an outrageous fee to have an outside company maintain her website.... Read more »
