Here we go. We are back. Grab on to the hand rail and secure your seatbelt. This economy is about to take flight. We will soar into the stratosphere. We are bound for the heavens. Now, tell the truth. That's what we all like to hear. That in my mind is pure enthusiasm and optimism. The funny part is it could all work if we stay on a constructive faithful path. For one, I really am stoked about the advent of the small business loans that are entering the scene. This is a pure sign of confidence in the American people. Hopefully many financial institutions will follow the lead and run with it.
We will not see the light of day or the light at the end of the tunnel of this prolonged recession until we join forces and show faith and trust in each other. Big business certainly depends on consumer spending as does small business. If efforts are developed to support eah other, the odds of success could reach exponential numbers if banks make unsecured business loans more readily accessible, the spark in the economy could grow into a fiery expansion of spending. Just taxing the poor or the rich will only stymie the recovery, if not deepen the crisis. One nation under God means something to many of us. Let's get togrther.
Whether you nominate them unsecured business loans or credit lines, they are forms of unsecured business funding. Perhaps the most critical word in these times of attempted recovery, funding is enormously key. The quickest way to stymie any movement, whether it be a military campaign or consruction project is to cut off the water supply. Funding for business is the water supply for growth and stability. Money is expressed in many terms but it is money that is the stimulous for every function in this nation. Money is the essential in any economy, or there is no economy. Funny thing is we all know we will prevail. Why don't we accept it and move on?
Every industry has its gems. Believe it or not there are actually gems in the financial ranks. I'm not saying there is a plethera of them. I am, however, aware of a particular company that has found the benefit in being beneficial. I'm talking about Hawkeye Management, a firm second to none when it comes to coming through with unsecured business loans and lines of credit. If you are seeking expeditious and deeply concerned people to perform for you, you just found them. I am not one pointed enough to say they are the only worthwhile outfit out there. I am saying they are the very best that i know of.
One of the more difficult genres of business to sell is those of professional services. For example, if you need to advertise a dental practice for sale, you certainly can't just dream up a number and place a sign on the door. You will require a truly proficient and reputable broker to execute this intricate a transaction. NAPB are definitely a wise choice if you were to use them. It isn't as if you have an inventory of products you are selling or for that matter, you are selling more good will and community presence than any commodity.
One of the more difficult areas of pricing a business for sale is that of all professional operations that can not be evaluated by inventory or hard assets. It takes precise knowledge of the emotional and goodwill factors to come anywhere near close to estimating these values/ Take dental practice valuation for example. Its value is far more dependent on the patient list's factors. There are age factors, location factors and things like referrals to other family members. The list goes on and on. Obviously it takes a highly proficient company to be able to realistically come up with the right price for the seller as well as the buyer.
For my entire life I have been the world's biggest coward when it came to two-wheel vehicles. I feared everything from scooters to motorcycles. Four wheels or nothing,that was my motto. Then I saw these new three-wheel vehicles and thought "maybe." Even better yet was when I came across the side by side UTV at this place called Bennche. I finally feel that I can drive something other than a car or truck. It is great to experience that outdoorsy ride that I didn't realize I was missing. The feeling is ever so rewarding. Thank you Bennche.
Six months ago, My wife and I set out on a very unpleasant venture which required our finding a senior facility for her mom. We had her living with us for 12 years. Unfortunately her medical needs became too much for our capabilities. At the request of her physician we decided to get her to a place better able to treat her. After looking at several places, the deciding factor was to place her where they had senior living software. This software proved to us that it freed the time of the attendants allowing them to take better personal care of her mom. We feel happy and secure with our choice.
I was at a family dinner about three years ago when a young man who was dating my niece went on and on about this new product he had designed as a cell phone app. I am not exactly the technical type, but I was certain that the app he was so excited about had already been on the market. I tried to change the subject by discussing Freshloc Technologies and the products they have for remote control of temperatures etc. It didn't work. He repeatedly went on about how his remote security app would take take the world by storm. NOT! A week later his dream was obliterated by my niece showing him the already existing app on her own cell phone.
For the longest time, I have been wanting to test the waters in the Lone Star State. Recently a job opening presented itself to me. They want me to manage a distribution center for farm equipment in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area. The proposition includes a three month trial period so as to offer both sides the option of a permanent decision. I accepted the offer and chose to not take my car along. I was recommended to go to Auto USA Texas to buy a later model used car to use while there. The company said they would take over the vehicle should I chose to not stay in their employ or if their decision to keep me on was negative. In the event I stayed, I would need the extra vehicle since my daughter was about to becme of age to drive.
I am a bit apprehensive about my decision to pick up stakes and move my family to the Big "D". I have been intrigued by the great state of Texas for some time and have been anticipating living there for some time. Auto USA has offered me a position as a sales manager and the decision to take it has been a teetering thought at best. Now that I made up my mind to go there, I am literally shaking in my boots. The wife and kids are stoked. My two sons are devout America's team fans and can't wait to get there. They became Cowboy fans watching the team practice in Thousand Oaks , Ca. for years. I, on the other hand, am a die-hard Jets fan.
There are many seemingly mundane items in the business world that are frequently underestimated in importance. The maintenance of the work place is at least ten times as vital as the attention afforded it. I can't speak for everyone, but I definitely know I will not do business with a firm that has a pig sty for an office. This brings to mind the recent referral of a Dallas office cleaning company called Valor I gave to a friend was definitely appreciated. Would you have your vehicle detailed by someone who showed up in a filthy clunker? I didn't think so. I have a friend whose real estate office looks like a tornado torn library. I have literally seen people walk in and turn around and walk out in a matter of seconds.
My work experience for my entire life has been operating a telemarketing call center for the distribution of farm supplies that ranged from hoses and valves to rodenticides. This experience and a token will get me a ride on public transit. Looking for a job has become as difficult as finding an honest politician. The only prospect I have is a janitorial services Dallas job that doesn't pay any where near what I need to survive. On the other hand, half of what I need is certainly better than none of what I need. The one pleasant surprise is that the cost of living is a lot less in the Dallas area than where I came from in Southern California.
I must tell you that the picture being painted regarding the supposed economic recovery is about as accurate as the end of the world predictions. I was looking for a job, any job, for 14 months before I found one selling used cars in Irving Texas. Since the job is strictly commission, I have become the world's leading authority in cereal shopping. So please, if you happen to be in the vicinity of Irving and you are in need of a new ride, stop in and see me. I actually have a couple of Cowboy tickets for my next customer. I have to give them to someone, since I am a devout Giants fan.
I have been combing the nation looking for a decent job. I made up my mind to accept anyhing that provided a reasonable living wage. It brought to mind how I saw the world of labor when I was a kid. I remember thinking that the guys standing on the back of a gruesome looking hot tar truck appeared to be in captivity or Hades itself. I envisioned them with their trowels and mops climbing on to precariously slanted roofs and breathing in those ominous fumes. In reflection, I asked myself if I would go so far as to take on that type od a job. I told myself a resounding "NO!" Then I saw this Dallas roofing company with a totally different approach to the trade. Now here I am, tiles in hand.
Move over Leonardo and Kate. The top of the world will soon be my spot, not yours. As soon as the numbers (my checking account) make sense, I'm on my way to purchase one of the incredible Las Vegas high rise condos offered by Turnberry Towers. I will do my utmost to get on the highest floor possible. Imagine waking each morning and opening your drapes to view the world's most exciting city. Better yet, how about sipping a glass of wine while leaning on your balcony rail overlooking the vibrant neon lights in the evening. Who ever said there is no Heaven on Earth?
We all have at least one very special privilege that no power on Earth can take from us. That gift is the ability to dream. The virtues of hope and desire are two significantly human conditions that will survive just about anything. On the top of my dream list is the chance to own and occupy one of the fabulous Las Vegas condos that overlook the excitement and livelyness of Sin City. I can visualize the world of neon and glitz whenever I choose to close my eyes and do so. The gorgeous Turnberry Towers totally fit the bill for my dreamscape.
Brother, brother, wherefore were art thou in the 1970's when my little distribution company so desperately need you? I wound up getting a SBA (small business admin loan) that nearly destroyed my financial being. At one point the interest rste reached a soaring 27.75%. I walked around with the old 800 pound gorilla on my back. If the unsecured business lines of credit were around back then at today's rates I would have had a parakeet on my shoulder instead. I do however have the adversity to thank for forcing me to make positive changes in my business to not only stay afloat but actually grow.
The last time I had been involved with adding a room to a house, I was a child in awe of how my parent's home in BC turned out after the Vancouver renovations thay had done. Let me say that the experience ruined me for life. Now that I live in the State, I am very skeptical about ever seeing any craftsmanship come up to snuff with these artisans. Believe it or not, this plays a large part in why I have always elected to reside in rental peoperties as opposed to owning my own home. I never alluded to the fact that I wasn't a bit strange.
Back in the 50's, my hometown relied on all kinds of transportaion for our economic survival. Approximately 85% of the jobs in the community were freight related. We had railroads, shipyards and trucking occupying half the acreage in the city. As kids we looked at going to truck driving schools like they were upper education facitlities. College seemed like a distant goal until the mid 60's. It was funny how the entire mind set of the people was so restricted. The only other areas I witnessed thinnking like this were in the coal mining belts.
BIG D my oh yes!! After having spent more than a few summer days in the fair city, it is absolutely imperative to have Dallas air conditioning. I can't imagine existing there or for that matter anywhere without the life saving AC. To think that a few decades ago only the Ewing type families had the luxury of the cooling refresher. I also remember a 98 degree Christmas day in good old San Antonio. The Lone Star State sure has its sweltering moments. All that being said, it's a great place to live and work among the real people of this nation. Viva La Sam Houston!
All I hear over and over again is how difficult it is to obtain any kind of loan or financing. Sure, if you have an 800 credit score, this doesn't really apply. If you are like many of us that don't belong to that elite club, you must join in the hunt. I can say that if your live in within proximity of Midland, Texas and you are seeking one of the Midland Texas auto loans, you have just stumbled upon a great resource. MY Community Federal Credit Union can do as much for you and more than any other institution I can think of.
Are you the type to run to the search engines to inform you about the quality of a restaurant or a movie or anything for that matter? I used to be. Not being the quickest study or sharpest tool in the shed, it took me far too long to figure out there could possibly be special interests involved in the results of these searches. I do, however, maintain my belief in personal word of mouth marketing. If I ask a friend what he or she experienced at a certain restaurant with regards to food, service and ambience, the response goes a far longer way in in gaining my confidence than some blurb or article on the web.
