Business Tip--Be Skeptical

This article appeared in the GLMV Chamber of Commerce Action News for March, 2007

As a lawyer, I'm trained to be skeptical. Believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see. When I met entertainer, Sam Magdal, he told me he does a tribute show to Frank Sinatra. My response was "Junior or Senior?" (The answer was "Senior", and he really does an excellent show.)

As many employers know, prospective candidates like to pad their resumes. A little checking might save you much trouble later on. For example, if the guy says he went to Penn State, make sure he didn't go to State Pen, like many of my clients. He may have gotten the name mixed up.

Don't believe in flying saucers or illegal aliens from space until they land on the White House lawn at high noon. Sometimes you have to take a chance, but make sure to get as much information as you can.
