Michael Jackson Verdict

Apparently, the judge will read out the verdict in the Michael Jackson case at 4:30pm ET.

When my clients and I have discussed this case over the last few months, I've always held that this is the extreme example of what can happen when you're not setting good boundaries for yourself as a successful artist. By surrounding himself entirely with advisors and cohorts who are too afraid to say "no," Jackson creates a world where it's totally plausible -- regardless of what the jury says -- that these alleged crimes could take place.

The best people to have on your success team are the ones who can say "no" to you when you're about to make a boneheaded decision.
