    • Sharing isn’t just something we teach our kids in grade school—it has taken over our culture and examples of the sharing economy are everywhere. The sharing economy is an economic model in which people share resources with each other as part of a peer-to-peer network. This is also known as a collaborative or peer economy. Collaborative customers want to use the tool without buying it, have a ride without paying for the car, and have access to the dress for the one day they need it.
    • Have you ever been contacted to report on conflict minerals you may be using in your business? It is very possible you have never heard about conflict minerals, or you didn’t realize they could be an issue in your business. But there are laws in place around these minerals and their uses in commerce.
    • During my 35 years in the construction industry—mostly in commercial construction—I’ve often been asked, “How difficult is commercial construction?” and “How do I get started in that side of the business?” Usually, these questions are asked by experienced residential contractors who are looking to expand their businesses. As I answer their questions, I’ve seen a variety of reactions. Some contractors become excited, while others express no interest.
