All in broad based pay

Pay has been in the news so often lately, it can be hard to choose a topic to write about. But on November 12, 2018, I read an article titled Setting a maximum wage for CEOs would be good for everyone.” The author was Mark Reiff, a person with an impressive academic resume who asks if setting a maximum wage could “be the long-awaited solution to economic inequality?”

I’m not going to bury the lead. The answer is no. No, a maximum wage is not a solution to economic inequality. In fact, it isn’t a solution for anything

Perhaps I should have titled this “Ownership without leadership is almost certainly doomed.” A business near me was recently sold to a new owner. The place ran like a top for more than a decade. It had established procedures, great service and great products. The owners regularly spent time on site, and in the mix of day to day activities. Then it was sold as a “turnkey” operation.

So, why did I shut down my growing company to join another? I did it because I want to help as many companies succeed as possible. The decision, although somewhat melancholy, is also invigorating, exciting, and full of potential. I cannot wait to share new ideas, services, and experts with all my current clients and every company I am lucky enough to work with in the future. Give me call, send me an email, or shoot me a message if you’d like to chat. (We are also hiring, but only the best should apply.)
