Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were as fun as ours were!
trying something a bit different this month. Instead of emailing
the entire newsletter like I have been doing, this month I've
set it up so that this email version of the January newsletter
carries a brief highlight of each article, with links to click
through to read the entire article(s) online. Some articles are
even printable! :) I'd love to hear what you have to say about
this and it'll help me with future newsletters so please do tell
me what you think. :)
Thank you and have a terrific day! Diane

YOUR CUSTOMER LEGALLY "STIFF" YOU? ****
EXCLUSIVE ARTICLE ****
you know that there's a possibility that your customer could legally "stiff" you?
If your company is improperly licensed your customer can refuse
to pay you and there's nothing you can do about it. Not only that
but, if you are a Subcontractor contracted with a General Contractor
who happens to be improperly licensed, his customer can "stiff" him
and there again you can find yourself without payment AND you can
be penalized by the license board for contracting with an improperly
licensed, or unlicensed, contractor. General Contractors, if you
are contracted with an improperly licensed Subcontractor you can
be penalized by the license board also! Read

SOMEONE SPYING ON YOUR EVERY MOVE?
the catch-word for computer applications/programs that install
themselves on your computer without your knowledge, usually piggy-backed
onto a computer application/program that you are knowingly downloading
and installing (such as coupon and savings programs; music downloading
programs; etc.). The so-called Spyware then tracks your every
move and can even lift your personal info from your computer
without your knowledge. One of our readers wrote in with a glowing
endorsement for an application that is designed to erase any
and all Spyware off of your computer. Read
