This coming year will be the 10th anniversary of Rush on Business. When I first started the blog I wrote articles 5-6 times per week, worried about my search rankings constantly and did everything I could to get my articles linked with other blogs. I have been one of the fortunate ones in the blogging sphere. Somehow I’ve always been able to attract work from clients which always made it worth the effort. Over the years I have definitely slowed down due to client work demands, kids activities and lastly, just a little bit of boredom. But with the 10th anniversary nearing, and having sold some non-legal business interests recently, I have some new found vigor for the blog.

But there will be a definite change this coming year. In the past I’ve always tried to provide timely legal information in an easy to understand format. I’ll continue with that as an overriding goal but moving forward I am going to mix in more opinion articles on legal issues I think could (or should) change.

For example, there’s been an ongoing debate in the Des Moines Register about whether non-compete agreements should be enforceable in Iowa. Or, just what should franchisors be required to provide to franchisees in terms of support and guidance in order to maintain a franchise business? And what about the race for President? Is Donald Trump the shoo-in for those whose most important concern is business and/or the tax code? Just a few of things I have in mind to address early in 2016. In other words, we will try to spice it up a bit.

I hope you will join in the conversation. And thanks for reading and supporting the blog over the last decade! Best wishes for a successful 2016!
