Cool Site of the Week: DocStoc

It never fails - on a Friday (ok I know its Thursday but just roll with me here) before a holiday, a hot date, or any other reason to daydream through your workday, your boss swoops into your office and tells you he needs a report, or an overview, or a masterwork on the state of the rainforests in Bali. You know, something simple. Riiight.

Or, lets say at 12:15am inspiration hits and you decide you really do want to be a professional bat guano harvester and since there aren't any in your city you figure you're a shoo in for all the business that has to be out there. But its 12:15 and your lawyer's office is closed. Um ok you don't have a lawyer. And can't afford a lawyer. But you NEED to get your company off the ground NOW.

Enter - a public repository for free legal forms and business documents. It has saved my tail a time or two and allowed me to a) get out of the office before sundown, and b) look like I have an idea what I'm doing.

It operates like a simple search engine. Just type in some keywords i.e. "budget analysis" and voila: here you go. Or, "LLC formation" and tada - faster than an angry bat you get: this!

And when you have something fabulous to share, return the good karma and upload one of your gems for the next sleepless soul!
