I Learned This
Association health plans for small businesses and self employed individuals may return.
From Forbes Magazine “The Trump administration put small businesses — some of them, anyway — in the crosshairs last week, when it unveiled its latest effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. On January 4, the Department of Labor proposed to revise its rules in a way to make it easier for small businesses to buy insurance from trade associations — insurance that wouldn’t have to abide by many of the requirements that Obamacare imposes on small-group and individual health plans. But the new rules are hardly a complete victory for the health care law’s opponents — at least not yet.” Read the whole article by CLICKING HERE

The Book I’m Reading
Daniel Pink is one of my favorite authors. I have preordered his last three books on Amazon. I was thrilled to get his latest book in my hands on Tuesday. From the editor: “Everyone knows that timing is everything. But we don’t know much about timing itself. Our lives are a never-ending stream of “when” decisions: when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork.
Timing, it’s often assumed, is an art. In When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Pink shows that timing is really a science.
Drawing on a rich trove of research from psychology, biology, and economics, Pink reveals how best to live, work, and succeed. How can we use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule? Why do certain breaks dramatically improve student test scores? How can we turn a stumbling beginning into a fresh start? Why should we avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon? Why is singing in time with other people as good for you as exercise? And what is the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers, or get married?
In When, Pink distills cutting-edge research and data on timing and synthesizes them into a fascinating, readable narrative packed with irresistible stories and practical takeaways that give readers compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives.” Use this link to purchase or find out more:
