    If you set of a business, you should get some risks.
    For example i set up a shop, I should pay for utilities,tax, staff
    And the place of the shop is so important. For example, I may have little chance to succeed if i set a fast food restaurant near a big Mcdonalds.

    I am thinking to buy a semi truck. The duty is defined. I should deliver freight to the destination and are paid money.
    May i be bankrupt in this business?
    except accidents, are there any major risks?

    I’ve tried lease-purchasing through trucking companies but I always get ripped off. Does anyone know of a finance company that will work with m?. Or any other suggestions?

    Not everyone is going to be taking calculus and AP English. And not everyone wants to fix cars and do hair. Perhaps instead of having two tracks in high school, we need to look beyond that at other skills. Artists. People people (you know, the sales and human resources types who can talk their way in and out of everything). Allowing students to do their best, yes, but doing their best in a variety of different disciplines. And then having real world classes on top of that, how to handle your personal finances, general accounting practices (important for ANY kind of business), stuff like that.
    I can show you tons of kids who can’t make it through remedial English or remedial math in order to graduate. Something’s got to give.

    My husband is shopping around for a semi truck. He has been approved through 2 lenders within the past week. We don’t like the terms of these loans, but we are worried about shopping around for different financing and our credit score dropping from all the inquiries. I understand the difference between “soft” and “hard” credit pulls, and because we were approved, both of these were “hard” credit pulls where they actually looked at our entire credit report. Please help me understand!!!!

    There are far more male scientists, philosophers and politicians than women. Also, men tend to be better at technical things. What’s your opinion on it?
    I’m not trying to win a debate, I don’t have a definite opinion on the issue. But it’s blatant that men are generally better at these things. That doesn’t mean they’re smarter in every field. I’m a woman, I love philosophy and I’m good with maths and computers, but most technical stuff still bores the hell out of me. Most of my girl friends dislike scientific subjects and are pretty technophobic.

    So recently we financed a 2012 ninja 250. It was about a two months ago, but after riding it for two months I have come to the conclusion that I need a bigger bike. Im a new Rider and Don’t get me wrong i love the 250 it’s great but I live in houston, tx and the highways are full of big trucks, semis, and dumb drivers. The bike is really light and every gust of wind feels like it will throw me over to the next lane. I would like to go up to the 650 range. I was told by many bike riders that the bike is awesome as a beginner bike but that they personally would probably only use it locally and that I was brave for getting on the highway with it. Of course I know the experienced bike riders have their biases and I am not one to let what people say get to me or sway my decision but to be honest I can see what they mean. Should I go back to the dealer I got it from and try to trade it in for a bigger bike even though I just finance it?

    My son & daughter-in-law got divorced last Aug. She already has a boyfriend who moved in with her. The boyfriend is a semi-truck driver. He took our 13 yr. old grandson & used freight straps to tie him down in a chair for “bad behavior”. He has also picked him up & dropped him to the hard tile floor. Our grandson ran away to our home. As soon as he arrived here we notified our son & ex-daughter-in-law that he was here. We all agreed the best thing to do was allow the grandson to remain here while our ex daughter-in-law finds a good counselor to talk to both mother & son so issues can come out & be resolved for our grandsons safety. The thing is our grandson now has been here for 4 wks. but his mother keeps the child support & is not helping us (we are retired on a very fixed income!) with groceries, clothes, etc. that our grandson needs. There are a total of 4 grandchildren so she receives $1100/mo. Our grandson was enrolled in home school but while he has been with us she never brought by his books & then she tells us she “dropped” him from the school program. This has made the grandson without school for 3 wks. I reported all this to Child Protective Services. What I want to know is how do I get our grandsons child support money? We desperately need help! Our son left this useless piece of garbage because she spends $ like water on herself, never paid bills (I handled paying their bills for our son for 28 months since he works graveyard shifts). She is a very physical person & used to hit & throw things at our son all the time. She refused to get psychiatric help. My son is going to seek for custody of the children but meanwhile can I go after her for this $ for the care of our grandson? She also received 1/2 of our son’s retirement money so I know she has the funds to give us for our grandsons care. Please let me know what I can do. Thank you so much!

    The cost of the vehicle plus an additional amount for unpaid loans on a trade in or additional options. What is the typical additional percentage?

    New or semi new.
    Reliable enough to not break down with hard driving in less than a year.
    around $10,000 give or take.
    Good gas mileage is key.
    Preferably a sedan but I’ll take in other ideas.

    Thanks. I need help in choosing which car to buy.

    I want to get a career as a stockbroker or investment banker. Would a course in legal services be of any help to begin with. I just want a taster of it before I make any commitments. There is nowhere nearby where I can study economics or finance but some official websites said that Law would be useful. Can anyone confirm this or offer their own suggestions? Thanks.

    I have a situation where the seller is free and clear and considering taking back a mortgage to finance the deal. This is the first time for me doing a lease option. I’d much rather stay in the deal and create income. He has a bit of equity in the property.
