To clarify, possibly unlike you, I do not really own a business. I do not have any employees. I am just a freelance IT consultant, working essentially full-time for a tier-one telecommunication operator (although, technically, this telco is my end client, I am billing my services to an intermediate IT service provider).
Heh... “Tom would whip you into shape, fairly quickly,” just as he once did me. “You,” in fact, “do ‘own a business.”
As Tom himself would be very quick to tell you, there are many forms of business in this world which consist of providing one of two things to “the rest of the world”: either services, based on expertise, or counsel, also based on expertise. On top of these two is a third set, which consists of providing an unpredictable amalgam of both.
Well, as it turns out, a great many lawyers realize that they, themselves, properly occupy this “third set.”
Therefore, they make it their business to seek-out and to educate other entrepreneurs, that they, in fact, properly occupy this “third set,” too.
“Guess what ... Tom’s right.”
