    Really, you have to keep an exit door propped open these days or else the law can very well kick you in the head. It's a shame, but that is the way the world is. Sorry that I have to be weaselly just to be free from state coercion, but well, I do.

    That's fine in principle, so what you'd want to do is state up front what conditions you'd be unable to meet your end of the agreement. That way everybody knows where they stand. The problem isn't keeping an exit door open, it's in being sneaky about it. I don't know what you do for a living but in my field if I behaved like that I'd eventually create a pretty bad reputation and nobody would work with me.

    It's not just a fine principle, but the only principle to have if you want to be safe from the law. I don't know if I would call it sneaky as much as I would call it keeping potential risks under control. It might appear sneaky I guess, but it's really not. The law can create dishonest men out of honest men though.

    I've been doing business as an independent contractor since I was in my mid twenties and I can recall lying only once. It was a stupid, clumsy, unnecessary lie and while it fortunately wasn't followed up on, if it had been there's no possibility that I could have talked my way out of it. Otherwise, no lies, no sneakiness. It's not necessary and it's not worth the damage to your reputation. And before you say the equivalent of "nice guys finish last," it's not like that at all. While I may not lie or use sneakiness, I'm still practically never screwed over because I've learned how to cover my bases very, very well. Being a good business person is about being confident, reliable and thorough, NOT getting one over on the other guy and focusing solely on covering your own ass. If you believe differently, you're doing it wrong and I'm sorry you never had any mentors to show you a different way.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that last one went right over his head....some people cant view their own actions (or words) objectively at all.

    It was pretty funny tho, the irony.
