About Our Post Categories

As we blog, we like to classify our posts based on the type of information we are relaying, and sometimes, the specific topic we're covering.  You can access the posts from a specific category by clicking the links in the navigation bar at the top of our pages.

Starting a Business Posts share general information young entrepreneurs and small-business owners should know as they go through the process of staring a business or maintaining a young business.

Productivity Posts give tips for staying productive, effective and efficient.

Anecdotal Posts retell personal anecdotes as they relate to our business ventures.  Usually, these will walk through the resolution of a specific issue we faced.  While they are personal, we seek to relate these stories back to global truths with wide business applications.

Free Idea Press Posts are free ideas we would like to see executed in the real-world presented as fake press releases.


While we seek to provide helpful information, we are not legal or accounting professionals.  The views presented are our own opinions, and are not a substitute for legal or accounting counsel.
