Shopping At Work

Are you doing some of your holiday shopping from work this year? If so, you're certainly not alone.

Studies show that online shopping will run rampant this season, costing employers in lost productivity and exposing office computer networks to nasty viruses and malware. (My husband inadvertently downloaded a particularly virulent one last weekend while shopping for me, in fact, and his computer has been in the shop all week.)

My Smart Answers column this week discusses what small business owners can do to set a reasonable Internet use policy.

On the podcast, I talk to Rachel Kruse, founder of an organic foods company called Organicville. Starting a food company is high on the list of entrepreneurial pursuits and yet it is far more difficult and costly than most people imagine. Rachel really did it right and she offers some great tips.
