  • “I found a great place to stay on [fill in name of big shared accommodation platform] – it’s in a great part of town, private and way cheaper than that big hotel we usually use.” Does this sound familiar?
  • These days, it is a really BIG deal when you see bi-partisan legislation. It is even a BIGGER deal when the lead sponsors of the bi-partisan legislation are the Chairman and Ranking Member of a Committee that has jurisdiction over health care. That is what we saw last week. Bi-partisan legislation introduced by the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Energy and Commerce (EC) Committee. That is not to say that I am minimizing the bi-partisan legislation that Senators Cassidy (R-LA) and Hassan (D-NH) – as mentioned above – introduced in the Senate (neither are Chair or Ranking Member of a Committee). The bi-partisanship they are showing is still a BIG deal. But at this point, I see the House EC bi-partisan bill as the most noteworthy piece of legislation on surprise medical billing due to the fact that the Chairman and Ranking Member of the EC Committee are the lead sponsors.
  • Some people ask me: Chris, why do you place so much emphasis on what the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has to say? They further state: It has been proven that CBO is often times wrong. Sometimes, by their own admission. Soooo, CBO is not reliable, sooo again Chris, WHY?

  • Accelerate Three Export Strategies with Government Grants Information provided by Mentor Works Canadian businesses often express that finding new clients or partners is a pressing challenge facing their company. This issue can be especially unnerving since unused production capacity results in lost profits and ultimately poorer performance, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Often, gaining access to new clients and partners comes down to expanding your market reach. Exporting products or services to foreign countries and establishing international partnerships could have profound benefits to your organization, but it also brings a degree of risk that must be overcome. Luckily, Canadian government grants are available to help businesses reduce the cost, and therefore risk, of market expansion projects.
