re: It's official, Boehner has spoken! No repeal and replace! - StringedInstruments
It's not that I personally and necessarily disagree with not fully repealing and replacing Obamacare. However, it was pretty evident that the American people voted out a shitload of Democrats and voted in someone like Trump based heavily on repealing and replacing Obamacare. That's what the majority...

Just had my first In-N-Out experience - StringedInstruments
It was everything I expected it to be. Incredible burger (double double animal style) and incredible vanilla shake. All for $6. I'm in Phoenix this week for four days and I will definitely repeat that meal before I leave. Edit - Fixed the title. Sorry I'm tired from flying all day! ...

[quote]You've obviously put some thought into this and it is probably disheartening to have people shoot holes in your idea. [/quote] It's not all that disheartening. It's why I posted here - to get different perspectives on this plan. I knew going in that I would receive some dissent. It's a goo...

re: Thinking of Opening My Own Music Lessons Store - Thoughts to consider? - StringedInstruments
Sorry I think you've got it confused. Lessons are $125/month per student. I take $60. Teachers are paid with the leftover amount. So $65/student each month. The $115k doesn't go toward paying teachers. ...

re: Thinking of Opening My Own Music Lessons Store - Thoughts to consider? - StringedInstruments
I never said I don't currently have students. I have 25 right now as side income. But I'm on the independent contractor side getting paid hourly and watching most of the profits go to someone else. Person I know that has done this successfully now has multiple locations with 850 students. He has...

[quote]Why not just keep doing music lessons either at your home, online, or at your student's home and save a good % of that (assuming it isn't your primary income) until you have enough to rent space[/quote] Because it's really difficult to get that set up. For one, advertising a home studio ca...

re: Sherlock Season 4 (Spoilers) - StringedInstruments
I liked season 4 when I watched it but the more I think back on it, the less I liked the ending. I actually liked the first episode and how it set up Dr. Watson's development as a character. Sherlock has learned through Dr. Watson how to be a human being, and with Watson going from loving husban...

Thinking of Opening My Own Music Lessons Store - Thoughts to consider? - StringedInstruments
This is only in the vision stage right now. Can't say this would be put into motion for a while. But I've identified a rapidly growing area that lacks a music store. In fact, there are three school systems that are in 5-25 minute driving distances from the location I'm looking at. Based on rough...
