so you had two people (let's say 3 with you), 4 hrs (from 9-1pm). that's 400 flyers.

how did you give out the other 600 flyers to make them 1,000?

Hey guys i had a lady approached me today that i have dont previous work for when i was with another company. She has a friend that has a small landscaping company and suggested that the we should combined them and she would do all of the administrative work and i would be the sales/foremen and this other guy would provide all the labor (Mexicans) Which i have no problem with them. Its like do i here her out just b/c or just let it go. she use to be in business for herself an did some kind of corporate banking work she know that aspects of business. i know her from church also. what to do cause my business is set up as a sub corporation S and i have shares i guess i could regulate the amount of shares they get just that i have the final say i the things. it just seems really risky cause i have a ton of money in it right now. sorry so long just dont know what to do.

my wife's is all custom made for her, but mine is getting to the point where I am about ready to throw it out the window. It's getting so bad I have to slap the monitor every once in a while to get it to work.

Time to get a new one i have a laptop its great with the wireless Internet i can go anywhere in the house without any cords. plus i think it will come in handy for presenting a plan to a client cause iam looking to a program for landscape design right now but those things for a good one cost just a much as a new mower. it could just be ur monitor that going bad. sometime thats what u got to do with the things thats why i quit IBM
