Sorry for the lack of updates, this thing called summer is getting in my way. I had another talk with the general manager for franchise relations on Friday to get more of my questions answered. We are moving forward to my purchase by mid-July.
I am now spending time researching mobile phone options. I have been leaning to the new iPhone coming out on July 11th. It is either that or a Moto Q. I need to go hold them both in my hand before making a decision. Of course with Bluetooth, it is not that critical how it feels, but sometimes my ear piece is not charged. I am just very interested in 3G instead of EDGE.
Today I headed down to the county to pay $60 to obtain a county business license. They have our company name and home address. They also stamped it with “HOME OCCUPATION”. I feel better knowing my home is occupied. I wonder if the troop numbers will increase.
I continue to watch the price of oil and the downward plunge of the stock market and wonder if we are making the correct decision. The economic news continues to be dire and here we are about to open a business that deal with discretionary income. It is funny though just about every connection I talk to is thinking about, has gone, or is getting ready to go on a cruise.
Just catching up on what has been going on the past couple of days.
I have obtained an EIN from those IRS folks. I have reserved a business name with the state of GA. I have filed articles of organization for our LLC. I have opened up a business checking account, funded said business account, and ordered new business checks for from another vendor.
Today was Father’s Day, and the family and I headed up to the neighborhood pool. We spent about three hours playing in the water, snacking on some club grub and enjoying the sun. One of the girls that went to pre-K with my daughter was up there with her sister and dad. Her dad happens to be a VP of field operations for a rather large partnership of Domino’s Pizza franchises.
I have my first cruise sold. My housekeeper is going to book on a cruise for September 2009. Her and about 13 other members of her extended family. Guess who will get the booking?
