Leaving your job in six months to start a new business? Want to plan ahead, right?
YES – but don’t want to publish ahead.

Don’t create a new profile on Squiddo

Don’t change your job on LinkedIn

Don’t update your status on Facebook to “Excited about my new job!”

Don’t put it in your Christmas letter

Don’t tell your friend at New Years party

If you are trying to figure out old work / new work/ employment contract issues – please don’t blow it all by a slip of the tongue and/or web update. Lastly, don’t “Friend” your non-compete lawyer or link up on Linked in. Folks will wonder why you are now linked to an attorney that specializes in defending breach of contract cases!

Plan ahead, and try to keep it a secret!
