MEMBER DIARY

Entrepreneurship

Spreading my wings and getting ready to fly.

I’ve been out of work for the calendar year so far, and haven’t had much free time to blog here. I spent it preparing a plan on doing the counterintuitive and starting a new small business, a single-person LLC, even in the face of the possiblity that Obama could become the next President. My skills as a chemist have gone to waste on bad ideas and the Corporate mentality about R&D for a decade now, so I’m done. Soon my employers will be my clients, if they know what’s good for them. I plan on kicking the chair out on a bunch of middlemen and becoming quite self-sufficient, and financially independent in the process. Everyone knows the First Rule of Business, but the Second Rule of Business is “Never piss on the talent”.

What say you all?
