In answer to many (okay, three) requests, two months ago I started sending out a weekly email with a link to my latest Financial Post column (and occasional other writings in PROFIT, MoneySense or TechData magazines). It's small-business intelligence on demand!
If this offer sounds enticing, just send an email to rick(at)rickspence.ca. Please mention "RickAlert" in your subject heading or text, and I will add you to the mailing list.
RickAlerts contain no advertising, and you can cancel your subscription any time. And of course I won't sell, rent or otherwise abuse your email address. That's just bad business.

The future really is in your hands."
