“There’s always a new trend but as quickly as it comes up, it goes away. Keep true to your brand, what you identify as a solid product, and what you really want to showcase out there instead of trying to jump on-board with a ‘new trend’ as quickly as you can.”

Black letter laws are the well-established legal rules that are no longer subject to reasonable dispute. Originally, “black letter”” was the Gothic type-style which was used to set forth the law in England until the mid 18th century. Every business is subject to so-called black letter laws. This podcast brings famously experienced business people, lawyers, accountants, and anyone else in the realm of business to the table to share personal experiences that have shaped their business and to talk about how to handle black letter issues in creative ways.
