A Photography Studio Design Project // The Colorful Before

A Photography Studio Design Project / The Colorful Before

I just started working on what promises to be quite a showstopper of a design project for a photography studio.

Get Back to Work: Your Personal Brand

In my book, Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move, the third chapter – Your Brand – is all about the critical and often overlooked step of building and maintaining your personal brand.

You probably have read about this idea of “creating a personal brand.” What is it exactly? And where do you begin? Once you’ve identified what it is, then what do you do with it?  The Your Brand chapter in my upcoming book will help you to answer those important questions.

Here is an excerpt from the book:

Bill Increasing Penalties for Frivolous Lawsuits Signed Into Law by Governor Brown

Bill Increasing Penalties for Frivolous Lawsuits Signed Into Law by Governor Brown

On Thursday, September 18, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assemblyman Ken Cooley’s AB 2494 to curb frivolous litigation tactics.

Prior to 1995, California law provided that litigants subjected to bad-faith and unmeritorious tactics could seek sanctions in the form of attorney’s fees. While invoking this provision did occur and promoted fairness in tactics, it was rare because a very high burden of proof is required to establish bad-faith.

"CMTA appreciates Ken's work on this bill - it demonstrates his commitment to reform the difficult regulatory climate in California,” said Jack Stewart, President of California Manufacturers and Technology Association. “He understands that we need to find ways to make regulations less burdensome and reduce compliance costs such as the frivolous litigation this bill will discourage."
