I just started my new job today, and it’s perfect. It’s a small company with only a few employees, most of whom are never in the office – they all work “in the field.” Also, there’s a receptionist, so I won’t have to be constantly answering the phone (thank goodness for that). The receptionist is very friendly, and I can tell that she’s looking forward to having another woman in the office. Most of the other employees are men – all the better for … Read More →
Today I became a business owner. That’s right, I’ve opened my own business and am about to make a million dollars the easy way – with little or no money down. Okay – I spent a little money.

Another day, another dollar…or at least, another stolen dollar.

When he told me that, I felt like saying, “Really? A … Read More →

So, I started the day by doing the Payroll. Just like two weeks ago, I created and took all of the paychecks to the boss to sign. He signed them, with only the occasional request to see a corresponding timecard…then he signed mine without question.
There I was, minding my own business, when in walks the boss with a receipt. On the receipt are stamped the letters C.O.D. It was from one of our vendors that apparently hasn’t been paid in so long, they’ve changed our account from credit to C.O.D.
“What is this, Betty?” the boss asked me. “Why has ABC Hardware turned our credit account … Read More →
Today I got an intriguing email. The email was a confirmation from PayPal. It said that we had spent $150 on an online order. Since the company does not have a PayPal account, I knew it was a scam – a Phishing Scam, where some con artist is trying to get access to our account. When you click on the links in the email, … Read More →
