Catching Up

The weather is cooling off, my holiday decorations are starting to emerge from the garage and last weekend we spotted our first Christmas commercial on TV.

All this evidence, of course, leads to the inevitable conclusion that it's almost ... year-end tax planning time! Woo-hoo!

Yes, this is the kind of thing that gets the tingles going when you live and breathe small business. In my Smart Answers column last week, I also wrote about public relations versus social media marketing.

Today's column might be a tad more controversial - truly.

My editor asked me to take a look at the business of medical marijuana now that the Obama Administration has announced it will cease raids on dispensaries operating legally. It was quite an experience interviewing many of the "legendary" cannabis activists of the past couple of decades.

And they say that business writing is dull. Tsk, tsk.


  1. Hey, even we business writers have to joke around sometimes! ;-)Happy birthday by the way!
