I'm afraid I can't agree with #1 in the P&P biz. (aside from private work)Some of the best advice I've ever been given about running a business:
1. Don't be afraid to spend money to make money
Be afraid. BE VERY AFRAID to spend money to make money. We just had a post a couple days ago of a vendor getting hosed for 30K working for Safeguard. If that guy had been a little more cautious.....now he's attending the proverbial school of hard knocks. He will definitely learn. I hope he survives.
