If this is a business article, here’s something I’ll tell you: You are the one who signs the checks. And it took me years to figure it out. I had, in slippery gradeSometimes, accountants I didn’t really know would handle all the money and sign checks for me. And you know what? This is inappropriate. I would say one of my greatest feelings is that I’m the guy who signs my checks for my company – no one else has that power, and people have tried to get it.
