94. Top US Fall Destinations -

Fall is my favorite time of year. The cooling temperatures, changing colors and football season all combine to make for a fun time of year.

It’s also a great time to travel. Fall means shoulder season in many top destinations, making travel a bit more affordable. But there also are some destinations that just seem to make more sense from Labor Day to the start of the holiday season at Thanksgiving.

100. Craft Effective Noncompete Agreements -

In 2017 most businesses’ value exists in intellectual property: a unique process or knowledge not readily known to the general public that gives a business a competitive advantage. Many small businesses dismiss the notion that they have intellectual property to protect. If the secret formula for a certain Atlanta-made soft drink or a Kentucky colonel’s fried chicken recipe are protectable, so too are a company’s customer lists, data, business practices, designs and other information that give a company an edge over competitors.
