Here we are, Craig Hewitt and Ken Wallace. We created The Nights & Weekends Podcast for you because you’re not content working for someone else, you’re frustrated with that commute, and you’re fed up with your daily gig. You’ve got a family, a mortgage — responsibilities, dammit — so you can’t up and quit, but you CAN bootstrap your own business, on the side, with a little hard work and ingenuity — right now, right where you are!
This week, we’re getting to know each other, setting goals and defining our path.

“Acronym that stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, a US law designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients’ medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals and other health care providers. Developed by the Department of Health and Human Services, these new standards provide patients with access to their medical records and more control over how their personal health information is used and disclosed. They represent a uniform, federal floor of privacy protections for consumers across the country. State laws providing additional protections to consumers are not affected by this new rule. HIPAA took effect on April 14, 2003.” [Source]
