Keeping Up to Date on Delaware's Laws

Sometimes there's just not enough time in the day. It's easy to run out of hours when you run your own business.

When you make the transition from employee to employer, or future employer, you find that there are a lot of little details that you may not have planned for and a lot of skills that you may need to develop or farm out to someone else.

There's more to be concerned about than the goods or services that you provide to your customers. There are a lot of skills that you may need to learn in addition to the experiences that make up the core of your business. Those include things like accounting, marketing, billing, customer service and support, ordering supplies, networking, and many others.

Add another task to that list. If you're not spending at least 15 to 20 minutes a day or more reading about business, then you're missing out on an opportunity -- a chance to find new ideas, to tackle old problems in new ways, and to see how others approach situations that might befuddle you.

One of the reasons why we started this blog was to share some of the articles and information that we come across on the web. Some interesting ideas spring up in places like Knowledge @ Wharton.

Another motivation for the Small Business Reading Room was the idea of being more open with our customers and potential customers, and starting a dialogue with others on the web. You might be able to tell that we've been reading the Cluetrain Manifesto. If you're unfamiliar with that book, it does make for some compelling reading, and presents a strong argument for improving communications between companies and their clients.

That communication is going to sometimes include sharing our happiness when something good happens like a positive mention in a law review article from a couple of law professors. OK, we made it into a footnote, but we're proud of that footnote. The article is The Myth of State Competition in Corporate Law, and our mention is on page 717. We're also pleased about the article because in many ways, it says positive things about Delaware as a place of incorporation. Enough tootin' on our own horn. (We hope that we get the chance to do that every so often.)

We may not update here everyday. You're more likely to see updates to the Small Business Reading Room every three or four days. But, when we do come across something interesting on the web, or when there's news about Delaware's laws and policies involving business, or news about Delaware Intercorp, we'll try to keep you up to date here. Thanks.
