As the July 4th holiday was drawing near, fireworks stands started appearing in shopping center parking lots here in Leesburg, VA. These seasonal sales operations come and go. In our work with nonprofit sector and insurance industry leaders, we frequently encounter myths and misconceptions. While some myths come and go with the times, others seem to stick. Like fireworks in the hands of a child or inattentive adult, some myths offer no entertainment value and do a lot more harm than good.
