2015 here we are!
Yes, it’s almost February, but here’s a quick blog post.
Some major news: Our Director of Operations Timothy Daly is launching his blog called Employee Seven. It’s a great perspective from the only non-entrepreneur/sales/technical leader we have on the team. He’s OPERATIONS! The backbone of all companies – great and small.
Here’s a snippet from his blog post “UNKNOWN UNKNOWNS”
Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones.

The first thing an Employee #7 needs to recognize is that there is a *lot* of information out there. No one person can know all of it. Just off the top of my head:
- Federal Employment Laws
- State Employment Laws
- Business Licences
- Tax Law
- GAAP Accounting Standards
- Financing options
- Renting Office Space
- Buying/Leasing Furniture
- Cash Flow
- Securing Credit
- Vendor Management
You cannot know it all.
