I am currently reading Atlas Shrugged. As a small business owner, something in the book resonates very deeply with me. The cases that have given me the biggest headaches and the most stress are usually cases where I am trying to "help" someone out and I cut my fees for them. This has caused huge problems and I no longer cut fees for anyone (I might do a case for free for a close family member, but for those cases, I don't expect any kind of payment). At the very least, this book is helping to explain why that sort of thing happens and how it happens more broadly than just in my own little business.
