7MS #387: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Crying - Part 7

Today's episode features a few important changes to the tools and services I use to run 7MS:

  • Docusign is out and (sort of) replaced with Proposify
  • Voltage SecureMail is out and replaced by ShareFile
  • Ninite is rad for keeping mobile pentest dropboxes automatically updated!
  • Nessys_SortyMcSortleton has been updated to...you know...work
Additionally, we talk about a few biz-specific challenges:
  • How do you (comfortably) talk about money with a client before the SOW hits their inbox?
  • If you're a small security consultancy of 2-5 people, do you lie about your company size to impress the big client, or tell the truth and brag about the advantages a nimble team can bring?
