The past couple weeks have been pretty busy.
On Monday, I went to a concert for LIVE, the group I wrote about not too long ago. It was a good networking opportunity — and plus, I’ve never actually heard them play.
(I was more interested in Barbies than bands when their big album ‘Throwing Copper’ came out in the early 90s.)
At the concert, they revealed their new lead singer, Chris Shinn.
Three of the band members — Chad Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Gracey — along with real estate developer Bill Hynes, make up Think Loud Development, a group that plans to rehab real estate in the city.
Also this week, a coworker and I were relieved of our daily duties to immerse ourselves in a longer-term project.
Still, I managed to squeeze some live chats in:
For the latter one, I used this disclaimer, as provided by the law firm in accordance with the Pennsylvania Bar Association.
“Disclaimer: This chat is for educational purposes, general information and a general understanding of the law. It is not intended to provide specific legal advice. Neither your reading of, nor posting on, this chat establishes an attorney-client relationship between you, the law firm, or the attorney presenting information. This chat is not a substitute for seeking individual legal advice from a licensed attorney. Readers should not act upon any information contained in the chat without seeking professional counsel. CGA Law Firm is a debt-relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code. “
The topic of the chat, as it turns out, had an unintended newsworthy hook. A local manufacturer, Wolfgang Candy, had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy two days prior.
I’m going to have to think about actually connecting these to news in the future to boost readership. For now, it’s just an experiment!
The legal chat had about 30 people watching, according to Cover It Live. That’s about as many as the CPAs I had on a month ago to kick-off tax season.
Again, it’s not the number of people you have. It’s the quality of the discussion.
