Going to court can be super intimidating! There are so many different types of cases and sometimes the type of case determines what building you should go to. I know, right—multiple buildings?! Pictured here is the Knox County City County building where some civil and criminal cases are held. When in doubt, call the Court Clerk and ask where you should go and always plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes early.
Doesn’t this look like a great piece of collateral? #IfYouKnowYouKnow. Check out our stories for some tips and tricks relating to loaning family/friends money.
I am lucky enough to have the freedom to work from wherever I want including my office. Where would you work if you go anywhere?
So “your friend” is considering starting her own business. ⠀
The legal stuff comes second. The first consideration has to be why? Why does your friend want to start a business? The answer to this question determines all of your friend’s next steps. ⠀
Starting a business shouldn’t be something your friend does just because she can. She should be called to it. Maybe it isn’t the activity itself and, instead, schedule flexibility or reducing travel. Whatever it is, she needs to be clear about it. Once she know her “why,” she can begin setting up her business. She should probably incorporate. Incorporating can protect her personal assets even if her current personal assets only include a DVD player and Beiber poster. One day, this business will begin generating revenue and she will be busy figuring out how to scale, not figuring out the structure of her business. The good news is she does not always need an attorney to create a real business. Over the next few days, we will explain what your friend can do to start her own business and some of the things she needs to consider… and as always, we will try to keep it real and stay true to the game.
So, "your friend" wants to borrow money. ⠀
It seems like everything is going right in life. You are doing well at work, you haven't paid a bill late/over-drafted your account in months, and your life is filled with loads of fine cuisine.. aka your fav happy hour special at your go-to spot. Your friends and family see your success and man are they proud! Then, someone's transmission blows and they need a loan. What do you do? ⠀
First, don't. That sounds harsh; I know. Money can seriously mess up a relationship if you are not careful, though. Second, if you must, then consider it a gift. The best way to avoid the awkward elephant in the room when your BFF has not paid you back but she bought four tickets to #TaylorSwift is to have zero expectation of ever seeing a dime back in your account from the get go. Lastly, if step one and step two are not an option, then defer to step three-everything probably needs to be in writing. Check out our stories over the next few days for more information on what you should include in writing to ensure that your relationship stays in tact and that you can continue to enjoy all the happy-hour food your heart desires.
