    Are you allowed to have him work around your home during a slow week? I got my grass cut today and I've had my deck painted by my employees in the last few days. It's a win/win - they get hours and...

    I don't think you can be successful with such a narrow low-margin product. Industrial glove sales must be very price competitive since so many companies are selling the same gloves. I buy gloves...

    I bought a $500 blender in August and I love it (Vitamix). It's the last thing I bought as a married man however (I didn't ask permission). Ironically, they bragged about their blades NOT being...

    It sounds like you made a smart switch to me. Are you allowed to use this type of employee to help you around your own house doing odd jobs? If so, he can make a huge impact for you if he, for...

    I wasn't questioning the rate - just giving my impression as a consumer. In my industry nobody quotes things by the "hour" so it never gets compared that way.

    If I were HT - I would do anything...

    I should have been a plumber! All of your rates sound outrageously high to me.

    My opinion would be not to break it out and invite the debate with the customer. What if your apprentice is just...

    I usually respond within a couple hours. My mail comes on my phone, so it is pretty easy to stay up with it.

    My post above is actually advice for your competitors to prevent you from costing you money.

    I probably do what you wouldn't agree with. Via Adwords, I bid on the names of my competitors so I...

    I've had to block several IP addresses to prevent them from costing me money on Adwords. Google does seem to be able to control it to a degree, but they certainly don't have the motivation to be too...

    I disagree! Many degrees can be a complete waste of time and money. Unless you have rich parents and you don't ever need to earn a living on your own, you need to look at the degree choice exactly...

    I think you need to stay local. The shipping costs of mailing a trunk are probably going to make it cost prohibitive for anyone that wants to buy one but can't come by and pick it up. It's also...

    You have come up with the two options I have considered. I have done the consulting thing (your #2) and I'm going to try something similar to your first option later this year. It's pretty hard...

    I would base it on the percentage of space that is dedicated to her office versus the price of your rent. If you are paying $500 per month for rent, and the office is 10% of the total space you are...

    I don't think you need help with the editing. I think, regardless of how well it is written, it will not sound credible to any investor. Having a price 60% less than your competition and then...

    Wow - he sounds just plain crazy and, you can't argue with crazy. I'd spend a couple hundred on a lawyer and threaten him with whatever can be threatened (i.e. defamation, harrasment etc.).
