We answer a ton of questions daily.
We get questions from veteran business owners, and people just starting out. We get all kinds of questions, ranging from the elementary to the complex. We use our vast experience to answer our client’s questions correctly.
What are some of the types of questions we answer?
One of the most often asked questions has to do with entity types. People want to know which we consider the better choice, a corporation or an LLC. As nice as it would be to have a definitive answer, conditions change from state to state. You may decide an LLC works for you in Delaware, but not in New York for instance. It ultimately comes down to a personal choice, but you have to admit it is a whole lot easier to make a decision if you aware of all the little details.
Matt Cutts has decided to start his year by taking some time off.
Taking time off is a double edge sword. There are benefits to taking some time off, and some real benefits to staying in the fight and getting things done.
- The good thing about taking some time off is you can get some things done. For example, there is that deep house cleaning you have been meaning to get to, and didn’t your house need painting?
- If that sounds more like work than the work you are doing maybe staying in bed is more your style. Just lie there for a while. Feel better yet?
Have you ever actually considered moving to another country because your taxes were too high? You’re not alone. Although some of us, maybe many of us, think about such things most of us would never actually try it. Wesley Snipes was charged with conspiring to defraud the US and willfully failing to file income tax. In 2006 he wrote in a letter that he declared himself a non-resident alien of the US. It didn’t get him anywhere though.
Want to know how you can tell if an email is really from the BBB or not?
If the BBB is actually emailing you, they have very little text and make you use their website to see their notifications so that they can track whether you looked at their notices or not. Any BBB email that asks you to open an attachment is a scam.
Here is an example of a fake BBB email.
Ok, so basically if you are getting a zip file in an email from someone you don’t seriously trust, IT’S A VIRUS. It’s just that simple.
I work a lot of hours. But the reality is my staff is so good that I wouldn’t really have to show up for a month and our clients would never know it. Our clients would still get great service, bills would still get paid, money would still come in, if something went wrong with the website our people would fix it, if something at the office went bad everyone would figure it out, if someone had a big order we’d take care of it, and we’d just click along at a great pace and well…. It’s pretty amazing to think about how well everything would probably be. It almost sounds too good to be true!! It’s a lot to be thankful for.
I saw an email from the WY SOS a couple days ago that was actual filed articles of incorporation as a PDF. At first I thought maybe the staffer was confused, did a favor for someone, or maybe someone ordered a certified copy of articles and the WY SOS employee mistakenly emailed it to us. We were just the registered agent, we weren’t doing the filing.
The biggest machine in our industry is Legalzoom. You’ve all seen their ads on TV or heard them on the radio. A lot of people in our industry always complain about them to me, saying things like “They get all the filings because they spend millions on advertising.” I always kind of thought they spent 10-20 million a year. The filing for LegalZoom Inc., to become a public company was fun to see the actual numbers and I have to be honest; I was really surprised to learn that they spend 41 MILLION a year in advertising. That’s SO much money!!!
