In March of 1986, I started The Tennessee Employment Law Update, a monthly newsletter. Some lawyers subscribed to the newsletter, but it was primarily designed for HR professionals.
It was a small operation: me and my wife. I was the writer. She ran everything else. Much to our delight (and surprise), the newsletter did pretty well.
