"60% commission is pretty common... which would put you in the $300K range in earnings.  Why not take all the business and work from home, if you can continue the practise?  Or, talk to other firms about bringing the biz to them.  60%…"

Goats in Agoura

I love to live here in Agoura, with the beautiful sharp volcanic hills, the wilderness around me, the nearby freeway artery connecting me to spots far away, the coyotes, deer, foxes, hawks, herons, egrets, raccoons and even the rare bear or mountain-lion.This news story about the fast-paced lifestyle in my hypermodern community amused me, especially as a recruiter, since I fancy that perhaps one day my skills in recruiting will enable me to enjoy an even finer career as a goatherd or…See More

What is GoogleSearch's Methodology (SEO) for Personal Identity Searches?

I just learned today, although I have always thought that GoogleSearch results were very spammy and dubious, that there actually is a word which describes the results that Google provides.  I was a little surprised to see it, in print (Wikipedia), but it really was there, and undeniable.So, my new shared vocabulary word of the day is "Spamdexing".  Spamdexing is what Google does to increase profits by driving traffic to competitor sites of whomever the person being searched for data happens to…See More

Just For Fun: How To Respond to Scam IRS Tax Fraud Calls

Posted on April 10, 2015 at 11:37pm 0 Comments

I've gotten three calls in the past two days from people with very thick Indian accents claiming that I have been indicted for tax fraud and that it is a "non-bailable charge" which will result in me being jailed if I do not pay quickly. This is a prevalent scam these days, which the IRS has warned the public about.

Apart from the fact that I my Dad works with the IRS, (he has a special license to practice tax accounting defense in front of the IRS that most accountants don't have), I…

A Radical Reductionist Analysis of the "Purple Squirrel" Idiom

Posted on March 25, 2015 at 12:00am 1 Comment

Really?  "Purple Squirrel"?

Is that the best you can come up with to describe an 'unfindable' candidate?

I remember seeing red squirrels for the first time in 1976, in the Vienna Graveyard, while I made my pilgrimage to the tombs of Beethoven, Schoenberg, the Strausses, Schubert, and other great Viennese super-composers.  "Rock-stars", if you will, to reinvent another overused phrase.

I had never seen red squirrels, before, so I was pretty amazed with them, as there were…

Nicholas: It wasn't intentional - it's probably me mispressing the wrong button on my mobile FB Page Manager. I have fat thumbs, and apologize for the confusion.
