Monday Morning Memoir

As you start up a new business there are a tremendous number of issues and dilemmas that we all face.  Since these issues are always interesting to get feedback on, I have decided to dedicate the “Monday Morning Memoir” (posted on Mondays) to a current issue my business is facing.  I will outline the issue and describe the solution that we are pursuing.  I encourage feedback from our readers and will respond to that feedback on Friday’s.  I hope you enjoy the trail of building a business.

Sincerely,

Lorne
