Being a fan of The Daily Show and have met former Sen. Tom Daschle on several occasions, I had to include this video. If you haven't heard, Sen. Daschle had to pay well over $100,000 dollars in back taxes when the Obama team was vetting him for the position of Secretary of Health and Human Services. I think Jon Stewart sums it up perfectly when he says "Pay you **** taxes!"
So I ask this of you in regards to presentations, your business and your brand: Are you paying attention to the details? Sometimes small things that you don't think are that big of an issue can become a big issue in a hurry. This can create serious issues for you in a variety of ways. If you are not paying attention to the details in your presentations, you can make some critical mistakes that might cost you some business. Also, make sure you are paying attention to details in other aspects of your business...it might be a simple mistake that you had no intention of creating...but it is still a mistake that you will be held accountable for. I don't think Tom Daschle was trying to avoid paying his taxes and create a problem for the Obama administration...but he did.
