Great Article on the Virtues of Fencing as Preparation for Business

This is a terrific article which reinforces some of the points I have tried to make previously. Not really a recruiting article, per se, but the principles have definitely proven true in my life: 25 years as a fencer and 25 years as a recruiter.  Learning to cultivate "fighting spirit" is only one of the many lessons I've learned.  Let me reiterate that I am not the author of this article, but it resonates so deeply with me that I must share it.…See More

"A Diamond Is Just a Piece of Carbon"

When people attempt to belittle us with radical reductionism, we might try responding with: "Sure, Archaeologists and Paleontologists are just ditch-diggers; Brain surgeons and heart surgeons are just people who love to cut and saw people; Accountants merely do grade school math for a living; Attorneys lie and do crimes professionally; Diplomats are weak-spined pusillanimous cowards who try to avert wars instead of bravely fighting them; Nurses are such despicable lepers and pariahs that they…See More

Welcome to the United States of Canada

Posted on July 5, 2014 at 12:30am 0 Comments

This week (on Canada Day, July 1, 2014) Canada's new CASL (Canadian Anti-Spam Laws) went into effect.  There will be a 3-year transition period, before full enforcement goes into effect, but the gist of the situation is that (according to everything I have read), Canadian citizens will be allowed to sue any emails sent from 'unopted' sources (i.e. sources to whom or from which they haven't given explicit permission to send email).  

The fines are staggering: $1 million per offense for…
