I was discussing legal concerns with a fellow business-person, and with my minor intellectual property irritations lately (which will likely be resolved amicably), I began to wonder: once you start and maintain a business, are legal squabbles and potentially even lawsuits, inevitable? Disappointingly, I tend to think, "Yes." I had never considered legal issues as a risk factor for starting a business or as one of the potential downfalls or costs of "success". HOW NAIEVE OF MOI!
In both my personal and professional life, I have pretty much enjoyed a lawyer-free existence. I get the sense that relatively soon, as my production business grows, the freedom from legal struggles that I have enjoyed will be firmly in the past. Am I wrong for thinking that way? Do you need to set a precedent by maintaining a strong legal presence so that fewer entities try to take advantage of you? Or, is conducting business about ensuring the best interests of your company, above all else, forinstance like the [deplorable] Monsanto Corp. seed police investigating and suing farmers?
Or more simply...
Mo money, mo problems?
IN OTHER JOBS:
It's confirmed for Job 37 and Job 38! ZIPPIE YIPPIE SNIPPIE WHIPPIE DIPPIE FLIPPIE!!!!!!!! (that's my Saturday happy-dance sound.)
For Job 37, I will be working with Keharn and assisting in the development and artistic direction of an educational I-Phone App. about "teen dating violence." It's an honour to be involved in a cause-driven project with a positive social impact. My last few jobs have been pretty model-heavy (and bottom heavy... lol), so it's refreshing to work on a project with more depth.
Aw shucks, what I mean to say is that it can't all be about me. Even though me is the best me of mes in the whole me-niverse. Me times 100 equals:
For Job 38, and for the remainder of my "One Hundred Jobs" project, I will be handing out One Hundred Jobs cards featuring Jeff's graphic design and his contact info. It's great advertising for us both!
I should be meeting face-to-face with Keharn next week to draw up some initial designs for the application, and then with Jeff to talk "bone white" business cards... ;)
I'll leave you with another Watch Mojo make-up vid featuring yours-truly:
Because it's not all about me,
P.S. Due to a video being produced for a contest entry, Blood, Sweat and Beers will be back next Friday! I know that all two of you BSB viewers are at the edge of your seats!!! Drink heavily until then: that's how I cope!*
