Today, I learned about a show on MTV called ‘Teen Mom.’ I hardly ever watch TV (and for good reason). So I’m not very “clued in” when it comes to whatever pop-culture crap that kids are watching these days. This show has been running for a couple seasons and apparently has some pretty high rankings.

Do You Actually Have A “Real Business”?

Can your business operate on its own without you being present?
