I’ve been out of work for the calendar year so far, and haven’t had much free time to blog here. I spent it preparing a plan on doing the counterintuitive and starting a new small business, a single-person LLC, even in the face of the possiblity that Obama could become the next President. My skills as a chemist have gone to waste on bad ideas and the Corporate mentality about R&D for a decade now, so I’m done. Soon my employers will be my clients, if they know what’s good for them. I plan on kicking the chair out on a bunch of middlemen and becoming quite self-sufficient, and financially independent in the process. Everyone knows the First Rule of Business, but the Second Rule of Business is “Never piss on the talent”.

What say you all?
