Dispatch from the Head Sherpa – December 2011 Pathfinder

News from the Manufacturing Front

As the year comes to a close, we wanted to remind you that there is still time to take advantage of Section 179 Deduction – the “Cinderella Tax Law” -- by purchasing your business equipment and putting it into use before December 31st, 2011.

If you haven’t heard of Section 179 , now is the time to call your financial advisor and get caught up.

Smartphones and Privacy Issues
We have all heard about checking and our privacy settings on various social media sites and outlets – but even if you do these things, do you realize that the metadata (embedded) data in the pictures that your phone takes could put you at risk for disclosing personal locations, such as home address, daycares/schools and favorite places to hang out?

Many applications that we use daily are based on upon geotagging, or embedded location information – it tells our devices how close or far we are to the things we are looking for.

Dispatch from the Head Sherpa

As Fall approaches, we here at MySherpa are getting ready for projects and technology refreshes, particularly for clients who are preparing 2012 budgets. This is one of our busiest times – clients are back at work, evaluating budget concerns and making lists of their “must have” technology and software updates for the next year.

Team Sherpa made a strong turnout this year for The Delaware KIDS Fund 5K Walk/Run, held on August 6th, 2011.

With a 30-person strong team (including a two-year old and 6 month old!), the Sherpas walked and ran for a good cause – to provide support and supplies for Delaware kids in distressed situations.
