[quote]Wow, how are people supposed to care for their families if they're not making a pretty good amount of money?

You can always get tickets outside the stadium, but unless you get them from a fan, as opposed to a scalper, don't expect a discount. The collusion is strong with that crew...

re: SoFi - anyone used this for a mortgage - rlanders23
Looked into a couple weeks ago as they hold my grad school student loan. Unfortunately, the low rates were offset by an estimated closing cost of $10k. We were much better off going through a local credit union. All that said, I've been very pleased in dealing with Sofi in the past and would reco...

re: 2016 health plans - rlanders23
@wasp, understand the insurance companies aren't purposely trying to provide a worse product. Like you said, it's a changing environment, and they're trying to do their best to make money, which means attracting and retaining customers. @bestbank, I haven't looked into the sharing ministries simp...

re: 2016 health plans - rlanders23
@wasp, basically, just want to be able to purchase insurance like I have in the past, which is be given a menu of options for which I pick the appropriate plan based on my family's needs and budget constraints. Whether or not the next door neighbor likes or can afford that plan is really none of...

Yea, that's what we had this year (the bcbs bronze ppo, which was hsa compatible. The hmos offered exhibit these same features but with a much more limited network. In other words, if you like your doctor...plan on him/her not accepting this sh!tty hmo plan...

2016 health plans - rlanders23
Alright, ladies and gents of the MT, I need help. I'm self-employed and live in the Houston burbs with a wife and two kids. Unfortunately, the bcbstx ppo plan we have in 2015 will no longer be offered, so I'm shopping for alternatives. Again, unfortunately, there seem to be no ppo plans offered for ...

re: At what point would you let someone purchase a piece of your company... - rlanders23
I guess the question is ask is if he's doing this because he wants out of the property (to your point about value peaking), wants to help you out since you couldn't get approval (is okay holding the paper, essentially) or wants in on the upside of your business. And then obviously you have to see i...

re: At what point would you let someone purchase a piece of your company... - rlanders23
Where did that $1mm valuation come from and how confident are you in it? I only ask because it seems awfully low at 1x ebitda (assuming ebitda and net profit are similar numbers). Would hate for you to give a percentage based on an inaccurate valuation....

Heads up play for sure but I'm guessing he was already jogging in from center, thinking the third out was secured. Got close to second, saw what was going on and covered. Nonetheless, a great play!...

re: Depth at Linebacker - rlanders23
Saw a q&a with CFW on facebook where he was asked a question about linebacker recruiting. Frank responded that we had 7 on the roster and will bring in some with the 2016 class. Not sure if that Q&A has already been posted so forgive me if this is a repeat of info....
