“For the Love of Money”

The legendary O’Jays recorded a song in 1974 titled “For the Love of Money.”  The lyrics of that song are as true today as they were when Eddie Levert penned them in 1973.  Check this out; For the love of money | People will steal from their mother | For the love of money | People will rob their own brother | For the love of money | People will lie, Lord, they will cheat | For the love of money | People don’t care who they hurt or beat.

For the past several weeks and throughout the VBR blog, we’ve talked about education, specifically Government Contracting education.  We believe it’s important that each of us understand as much as possible about the business and processes of contracting with the government.  There are countless business opportunities and proposals awaiting your arrival to the world of Government Contracting, and believe me, they will come.

Likewise, there are countless minefields awaiting your arrival to the world of Government Contracting.  The challenge for each of us is successfully navigating those minefields.  I’m sure it’s just me, but do the rules seem to favor the Big Boys?  When they do something wrong; accidentally or intentionally, there are hardly any consequences whatsoever.  When something goes wrong with a VOSB or SDVOSB, there are severe penalties, every time!

At the end of the day, we must all ask ourselves one question.  Just days into the New Year, most of us already know how we want this year to unfold.  In 2012, what will we do “For the Love of Money?”  

See you on the high ground!
