Hey gang…

There’s a great little article in the July 2012 issue of Entrepreneur Magazine about POCA and my little clinic.  The title is The Honor System, page 85.  I cannot find a digital copy to link to, sorry.  But if you are near a newsstand, pick it up and see!

That’s great, Donna! I tried to buy an iPad copy, but this issue isn’t for sale yet, alas. What is to focus of the article? The sliding scale, or the community aspect, or…? I’d love to know!

I have the iPod/iPad issue…don’t know why you are having trouble Demetra.  Weird.

It is a story primarily about pay what you can businesses.  The lead is a guy in Chicago who has done periodic pay what you can promotions at his doggie spa.  Then there is a blurb about my clinic and some quotes from me and a mention of POCA being in OR and a co-op.  Interspersed are quotes from a some dude giving his opinion from a business standpoint of pay what you can businesses.  They mention Panera restaurants.  There is a mention of ‘will customers take advantage’ and the dude says he doesn’t think businesses will get screwed if its a service…or in person.  But he says, online customers will likely not pay what they can but as little as they can get away with.

Pure business article, nothing about social justice, healthcare, etc.
