re: What's Merrill-Lynch's rep in terms of personal wealth mgmt? - kaaj24 on 10/23/16 at 9:10 pm
As others have stated they charge a fee for managing your money. For some investors this may make sense if you don't have knowledge, interest in financial matters, and/or time. Sometimes you have to spend money to make money. My only recommendation would be to meet with a couple advisors at a cou...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Business start up. Investors vs. borrowing - kaaj24 on 10/23/16 at 9:03 pm
If you don't have an established business with consistent cash flow and/or assets a bank will require you to give them a personal guarantee. Banks will stay out of your way as long as you make timely payments and maintain your debt coverage ratios. If you do take on investors just make sure yo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Restaurants on your personal 'blacklist'. - kaaj24 on 10/9/16 at 10:25 am
Borgne is at a price point that you should get good food with a service that exceeds what you would receive at Applebee's. We received neither good food or adequate service....

re: Restaurants on your personal 'blacklist'. - kaaj24 on 10/8/16 at 4:03 pm
I second Borgne. Wife and I went there last December. Our waiter walked up to us after we were seated and asked us what we wanted to order. No small talk, no personality, no selling. Didn't ask us about drinks, appetizers, etc. Felt like I was at Denny's. I will never go back....

re: Need opinions on pricing a a product. - kaaj24 on 10/4/16 at 11:52 am
My opinion would be to give 3 pricing options. I'm not in marketing or sales so don't take my advice seriously, you get what you pay for. Monthly, Quarterly, Annually I would make the monthly $29.99 (auto renewal), Quarterly $59.99, $79.99 annually. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I would guess increase due to lower inventory. Areas that didn't flood will be priced at a higher premium than before. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Observations from a visitor to Charleston, SC - kaaj24 on 8/14/16 at 7:52 pm
Thanks for sharing your experience. I thought they do a fantastic job of maintaining historical areas. Several of the home tours described there was a commission that must approve home changes and colors, etc. Sounded like a militant outfit for preservation. Different architectural influence th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Excellence - Punta Cana - kaaj24 on 7/19/16 at 9:51 pm
Beach was nice. Seas were a little rough but I think that is common given location. Beach wasn't crowded at all, this was in May timeframe. Large pool with volleyball and other activities. Felt very safe in DR. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Excellence - Punta Cana - kaaj24 on 7/19/16 at 8:46 pm
We stayed there and really enjoyed ourselves. The only bad part of staying at the location is a distance from airport. This was 7 years ago. We only did one excursion take a catamaran to private island. It was fun. I would go back to DR if it wasn't such a pita to travel there with no direct flights...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I would agree that all employees should know what each other make if people were self-aware and could honestly critique their strengths and opportunities. BUT they don't. Generally you'll find the worst performers think they're the best performers in the workplace. If you're unhappy with yo...

re: What's the best way to keep accounting for small business? - kaaj24 on 6/29/16 at 12:36 pm
As others have said it is probably best to get accounting software, like quick books. Especially if you get any scale where you start hiring people or potential savings in tax prep. Easier to do it right from the beginning. Excel can do pretty much do anything including bookkeeping....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
