Posted by Sarah Olbekson to Business Advice, Business

I recently had the pleasure of joining founder and CEO of Justworks, Isaac Oates, and Founder and CEO of LawTrades, Raad Ahmed, on a panel sharing personal success stories and practical advice to entrepreneurs of all stripes.

Chances are you’ve been overloaded with news and commentary and—whichever candidate you support—you’ll be somewhat relieved after the results are announced on November 8th.


But that doesn’t mean you should tune out until then. Between the candidates’ platforms, tax plans, and stances on topics such as healthcare, immigration, and consumer protection, there are important issues at stake that may directly affect your organization and industry.
