So another year has passed.  So what do we know?  Actually, who do we know? One thing I think we know for certain is that the title of “Newsmaker”, especially newsmaker of the year may not be the title you might be striving for or want bestowed upon you, at least not anymore. So for […]

Let it be resolved that some of you will look back at this past year and know that you’ll be reviewing what worked, what didn’t work, what needs to be re-written or added and some of you won’t.  That some of  you will have a new risk assessment completed to confirm already identified risks and […]

Now there’s a question I get asked a lot.  Reasonable question.  Honestly asked.  Pure curiosity.  Not always the easiest to answer.

Pretty hefty title to the article.  So what does it mean?  Let first start by tearing it apart.
