in thread MJDs Contract Warnings - courtesy of Perlweekly

To clarify, possibly unlike you, I do not really own a business.   I do not have any employees.   I am just a freelance IT consultant, working essentially full-time for a tier-one telecommunication operator (although, technically, this telco is my end client, I am billing my services to an intermediate IT service provider).

Heh...   “Tom would whip you into shape, fairly quickly,” just as he once did me.   “You,” in fact, do ‘own a business.”

  1. Even if that business has exactly one employee ... you ... in the eyes of the law [in any civilized country ...], it does have one employee:   you.
  2. The “end client” of that [currently, “one-man band”] business is:   “the intermediate IT service-provider.”   (N-O-T “the telco!”)

As Tom himself would be very quick to tell you, there are many forms of business in this world which consist of providing one of two things to “the rest of the world”:   either services, based on expertise, or counsel, also based on expertise.   On top of these two is a third set, which consists of providing an unpredictable amalgam of both.

Well, as it turns out, a great many lawyers realize that they, themselves, properly occupy this “third set.”

Therefore, they make it their business to seek-out and to educate other entrepreneurs, that they, in fact, properly occupy this “third set,” too.

“Guess what ... Tom’s right.”

    Abrupt and liberal use of Tom out of any context. Is Tom your name that is being used in third person? Creepy.
