re: Dave Ramsey's advice is awful - CHiPs25
I will admit that I used to listen to Ramsey pretty regularly. I had some debt with student loans, credit card debt and wife's car. By listening to him, it gave me a baseline to get my finances in order. It may have just been the time in your life when you look at your finances and make changes, ...

re: West Coast Swing Thread (Jon Rahm wins CareerBuilder; next up, Torrey w/ Tiger) - CHiPs25
Rahm struggled last year in Majors but i'll credit that to being new on tour. If he can secure a Top 20 in one of the major's then he'll get up to No. 1 sooner. He needs to show that the big stage doesn't frighten him....

PGA Cameraman Strike - CHiPs25
Anyone catch any of the PGA or Web.com coverage this past weekend? The cameraman walked out and left a skeleton crew of non-union camera guys. It definitely changed the broadcast as they had a lot of cameras not in use. In a normal broadcast, after the drive there is a camera that follows the ...

re: Best Games to Play While Drinking with Friends - CHiPs25
In college we used to play dunk-aholics. We would take NCAA Basketball and for every 3 pointer made, you'd have to chug for 3 seconds. For every dunk, 5 seconds. For every alley-oop, finish beer. My buddy and I finished a case of beer by the time we finished 1 game....

re: Business Owners with Sales Reps question - CHiPs25
They are paid on revenue. We tell them the price to sell it at and then they are paid based on their overall revenue number. For example, our top sales rep has a quota of $2.5m and if she hits that then she get a 1% bonus. The percentage is tiered based on how much she brings in so if she brings ...
