It was a luxury when I was a kid in the 80’s…mom would stop and get us a happy meal once in a while and we were on cloud 9!...

Got an email today that I was drawn! Can’t wait. Never deer hunted in KS. ...
You gotta be in Alpharetta/Milton man. Everybody knows that. Nobody goes downtown unless you have jury duty or something. ...
I started a construction subcontracting business in 2016 with a partner. We had a lot of relationships we built on the front end of our careers that helped us find early success. We cashed some retirement funds and put $10k each into an account to get it going…zero debt then and to this day we’ve ...

Need to find a cash flowing business to purchase…or use some of that money to start a business or two. They’ll be much more valuable in 10 yrs than whatever passive index fund you end up buying. Truth...

re: 3 day water fast

Posted by BLM on 2/29/24 at 9:36 pm
I’ve done a couple of 3day fasts in the last 3 months. It’s really interesting how your body reacts. I could feel stomach grumbling but not really due to hunger…it really reset my desire for crappy food and cut my down on how much I can intake for the first little while back into eating. I think i...
How big/small is the business? Your probably need a cpa. We had a book keeper doing our quickbooks when we were really small to cut down on expenses and then hired a cheap cpa. I’d suggest doing the same. For me it’s peace of mind that everything done properly. ...

Start a business! Will be WAY better returns than anything else suggested. ...
I have businesses in the trades. Going to encourage my kids to go that route when it’s time. So much opportunity out there for young ppl to get in early and learn. I’d have them learn Spanish as the majority of the workforce is Hispanic. At some point there will be Hispanic kids that grow into blu...

re: Dead Tail in Labrador

Posted by BLM on 1/8/24 at 3:45 pm
Yup I’ve always heard it called cold water tail too. I’ve had several dogs that have had it after strenuous work or exercise. Just give him some R&R and it’ll be better in a couple days. My current 2.5 yr old had it once after a long day…surprised he doesn’t get it more often since he constantly ...

re: Need some advice on training my lab

Posted by BLM on 12/14/23 at 6:44 pm
I used water dog back in the late 90’s when I was at LSU and had plenty of time to train my dog. He turned out great. Some of that was due to him having good drive. I never used a collar. I started some of the pressure techniques like ear pinch but stopped there. My current dog was trained by...

re: Benelli M2 or Beretta A400

Posted by BLM on 11/4/23 at 11:13 pm
What I use: 400 for ducks/geese in 12 ga 3.5” M2 20ga for ducks/doves Benelli 28ga for tight ducks and doves Love both the smaller benellis but the 400 with kickoff just cycles 3 1/2” loads amazingly. Inertia gun takes getting used to in the 12 ga…gotta hold that sucker a lot tighter to th...
I don’t really have any suggestions for you other than you may have to start sharing the cost with your employees. Other than that you may look at what type of insurance you’re offering. We went to a PPO/HMO plan where we pay for most of HMO and employee shares like 25% of PPO plan. We found that ...

ESOP’s

Posted by BLM on 10/27/23 at 12:11 am
Anyone here have experience doing an esop transaction from the shareholder side or experience from the employee side? We’re looking at taking 1 or 2 companies down the esop path. We have a consultant helping us evaluate it but I'm curious to hear good and bad stories. I’ve learned a lot that I di...
