I met this guy once who told me “Loose lips sink ships” whenever I asked about some project objectives. Well, he actually used it randomly whenever I asked anything. We never signed an agreement, probably because to date, it is still totally unclear to me what he actually wanted.

Looking at the statement per se, he does however have a point! Do not disclose confidential information haphazardly. People will use it regardless of whether you have an NDA in place or are in total lack thereof.

You may lose a promising prospect just for the sake of disclosing a potential partnership with their very competitor. Whatever is out in the news and media is good to go, there is no way in taking it back anyway.

Next time you are being invited for a job interview whilst still employed, be careful what to respond to your potential employer. Whenever I am holding interviews, I end up being deeply shattered by the amount of detail applicants would disclose about their employers voluntarily, i.e. without actually being asked.

Embrace it, “Loose lips sink ships”!

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind
    me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind
    if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours–
    but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would
    appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    1. Hi Justin,

      thx for your feedback, its much appreciated.

      I am hosting wordpress sites usually on dedicated root servers with a caching / reverse proxies as speed is otherwise a real issue. I found my theme here: https://codesupply.co/. They have nice ones and very affordable rates (especially compared to programming it yourself).

      Your site is great and I guess your product is in real demand right now. As for speed, I am using the https://www.w3-edge.com/products/w3-total-cache/ plugin which works really well. You could alternatively also help yourself with Cloudflare but avoid using Cloudflare caching proxy and W3 at the same time as otherwise it will have the opposite effect.

      I likewise wish you all the best during the ongoing saga.

  2. Normally I don’t learn article on blogs, however I wish
    to say that this write-up very pressured me to take a look at and do so!
    Your writing style has been amazed me. Thank you, quite great post.
