re: Tax treatment of a draw from a LLC - BLM
As others have stated it will depend on how the LLC is set up. We set ours up as LLC taxed as S-Corp to take advantage of distributions. Paying ourselves a "reasonable" salary and distributions beyond that. Do you have an accountant???...

re: Hillary wants to force profit sharing - BLM
Blows my mind. I only watched the first half but this really stuck out to me, as I'm in the 1st yr of a new business venture myself. As a small biz owner, I'll find ways around this like another poster alluded...purchase equipment, more expenses passed along to the company, etc. I have plans to ma...

re: Sitka gear - BLM
I have used one their shell jackets for 2 hunting seasons...and any other typical cold/rainy winter days. Love it and doubt I'll ever need another jacket unless I lose this one. I've owned browning, drake and Mcallister waterfowl jackets. This is by far my favorite. You won't be disappointed. M...

re: Any word on conditions at Catahoula Lake (habitat and legal) - BLM
Been reading the internet rumors for several yrs now, but it's been more along the lines of getting rid of permanent blinds and opening it up from the locals. Have hunted a fair amount out there...one of my favorite places to hunt as a change up from the fields. I will say that hunting Dewey wil...

re: Anyone been to Grosse Savanne? - BLM
Place is awesome! Company I used to work for...we started going there 4-5 yrs ago for a client trip. Probably 12 or so people for a 3 day trip. Having that much time is the way to go if you can afford it. They handle everything and like others have said you'll eat like kings. Shot limits of ducks ...

re: Do you like your job? - BLM
Started a commercial construction business almost a yr ago with a partner. Scary as hell and we still have a lot to figure out in terms of streamlining all facets, but it's been amazing so far. Primarily focused on business development and strong execution right now. We're going to exceed our firs...

re: UPDATE: Chandeleur Charters - Review and Pictures - BLM
I did a similar trip out of south MS 6-7 yrs ago. Supposed to go to chandy islands but weather didn't allow. Ended up in Biloxi marsh and had a great time/trip. Two ppl per skiff with no trolling motor or anchor as others have described. We drifted bayous with the wind and did the same in large pon...

re: LSU not ranked as a party school any longer? - BLM
This. I was blown away as a freshman in '95 when I showed up and there were open parties at damn near every house on campus. Was a free for all and I got all up in the middle of it. Anyone that attended LSU post Ben Wynn has no idea what it was like as it was never the same in terms of partying. We...

re: Any experience using job recruiters/hunters? - BLM
This is pretty spot on. The recruiter is looking to fit someone to a position of need for a specific company. They're likely not going to waste time helping you figure out what career best fits your skill set. Someone mentioned marketing. Based on what you listed, that seems like a potential fi...

re: Any experience using job recruiters/hunters? - BLM
I used construction industry headhunter firm once with good results. Company that hired me is an industry leader in what they do as I later found out...really provided a spring board for me to get where I am today. Not sure how it works in other industries but she/they had inroads with companies tha...

re: Stolen Duck Decoys - BLM
Just start painting jugs of all shapes and sizes. They move so much better in the wind than decoys. Mix in some Seles and you're set. Always cracks me up to see mallards decoying into jugs. ...

re: Advice on how to deal with a general contractor? - BLM
One other thing I didn't mention before. I know of a contractor that hired a company to basically badger an owner into oblivion when final payments weren't made at completion of a project. A guy from this company went everywhere the owner went...grocery store, church, country club, etc and made it k...

re: Advice on how to deal with a general contractor? - BLM
Sounds like you've already had some communication with his subs. I'd get them on the phone asap to ask two important questions: have they been paid in full to date by your GC and will they complete the job directly for you if required. You don't have much work left to do so the risk is low in terms ...

re: Advice on how to deal with a general contractor? - BLM
So there's no termination by owner language? If you don't know a construction attorney you should find one and get some advice after having them review your contract. You'd typically want to have termination language, stipulations on how and where to handle claims and a schedule with liquidated da...

re: My mentor and best work friend announced his retirement today - BLM
Nobody knows everything. You're obviously young. Mentors aren't necessarily people in your direct line of work. Figure out where you think you need to grow/learn and go find someone that excels in those areas. My guess is you'll be surprised and enriched by establishing a few of those relationships...

re: Advice on how to deal with a general contractor? - BLM
Contracts, contracts, contracts. What does the contract specify? What did you/he sign...something of his choosing that has no teeth? Really not much anybody can tell you without reviewing the contract. This won't get any better for you. ...
