Maintenance Bonds Breezy Free & Easy

b19Free surety bonds. Is there anything better? Actually I can think of a couple of things right off BUT… are they good? Sure they are.

Everybody likes free stuff. Trouble is, they’re not always breezy free or easy. Sometimes they’re a huge P.I.A. So let’s get into maintenance bonds and learn the issues.

The most common Maintenance Bond situation is a bonded public or private contract. The specification stipulates there must be a 100% (of the contract amount) Performance and Payment Bond plus a Maintenance Bond, which is often for a lesser amount, maybe 20% of the contract price. The maintenance bond covers the completed work for defective materials and workmanship, for a specified period of time.

The P&P bond is issued when the project commences, and the Maintenance Bond comes when the completed work is accepted. It is common for the project owner (obligee) to write an acceptance letter regarding the proper completion of the contract, and stating that the Maintenance Bond must now be issued.

For the surety, this bond is an easy decision. They already got paid for the P&P bond. They already faced

These firms have a secure warehouse and a strong racking system so boxes can be stacked efficiently. They bar code every box so you can track it on a central database. This allows clients to get items from storage all within a few clicks. The client just needs to pick the time and date for delivery.

Bragging or Owning It

b13I often speak to groups on how to be effective in expressing your power. I talk to and coach these groups in owning their own brilliance and magnificence. Most of these people are accomplished, smart, educated entrepreneurs and small business owners. Most of them diminish who they are when they speak about themselves. That is a problem. If you are building a business, or growing your business, you must be able to get people interested in working with you. To do that, you must own your power, your brilliance, your accomplishments. We all know that people buy and work with people they know, trust and like. How can I trust you are good if you don’t own it?

As I have done this talk, which is highly interactive with a couple of hundred people over the past year and when I work with my individual clients, I see this phenomenon of people downplaying their worth. So, I have inquired deeply into what gives, here?! What I have discovered are a couple of common threads.

How To Rate A Company Honestly Without Being Mean

b9It can be very tempting to jump on the latest review site to talk about a company you’ve recently encountered, but you first will want to make sure you’re giving the most ethical review you can. Consumers rely heavily on the company ratings and reviews they see online to determine where they’d like to do business. The consumer rating holds power! So, before you rate a company you’ve worked with, read these important tips to make sure you can give an honest rating without being mean.

The Golden Rule

Treat the business as you would want to be treated in their shoes. The reality is that an ever-increasing portion of online ratings and reviews of businesses are fabricated, paid for, or otherwise tampered with. Because consumers often look at online ratings before deciding to patron a business, it’s important to be truthful in your rating.

Context Matters

Your general feelings about dealing with a specific company are important, but to really

Reasons Why You Need a Certified Business Valuation

b8When selling a business, the most important question needs to be focused on the actual value of it. A certified business valuation can range in complexity. It could be a simple calculation or one that evaluates both tangible and intangible factors, giving you a more in-depth evaluation. Unfortunately, a single business valuation formula won’t work for all businesses under all circumstances. Usually, business valuation can’t be performed in the “right way”. For example, accountants may look at the figures in one way, while the brokers may look at them in a different way. A certified business appraisal is crucial for a company to be valued correctly. Here are a few reasons to consider this service:

You need it for Reporting

The ONE Thing Every Business Needs To Do

b4A couple of weeks ago, I was coaching/ consulting / just chatting with a sci-fi-fantasy author to write her bio.

She said something that really stuck with me –

She has decided that she doesn’t want to be spending her time chasing after all those “things” people are “supposed to do” online. She has no interest to blog weekly, to crush it on social media, or to create a course.

All she wants to do is to tell good stories – stories that people enjoy reading. Stories that deliver a satisfying reading experience. Stories that respect the readers’ time (and intelligence.)

She said it so matter-of-fact-ly. Nothing apologetic about it.

A stake in the ground. A breath of fresh air. A clear conviction.

More often than not, when I get on the phone with folks, they’d tell me a laundry list of “marketing activities” they plan to do.

Then they start talking about why they’re stuck, what haven’t been checked off the list and how that technology thing is keeping them stuck etc. – often with an apologetic tone.

That apologetic tone is deadly. It makes us shrink. It takes us away

What Is Business

b1It takes “Organized, intelligent and productive work” to rule. One interesting designation is the creation mandate is to “fill the earth.” It takes efficient and effective visionary leadership to “rule,” “lead,” “manage,” and fill up God’s structure – earth. All of the foregoing is the elements that make up a healthy business system. At the conclusion of work after creation episode, God enacted a “work” or “business” code called creation mandate for man to engage in filling up the “structure” that He created,

“Now no shrub of the field had yet grown on the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to cultivate (work) the ground
Genesis 2:5

When a high-rise apartment building project is under construction, the structural engineers first put in place the structure or skeleton of the entire building, which defines how the building would look like eventually. Thereafter, building engineers would come and fill up the structure with blocks before you can fully appreciate the aesthetic appeal or value of the
