When Someone Refuses to Forgive

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

From time to time someone will point out where they believe we have fallen short. When we are offended or hurt someone else, Christians are called to use the principles outlined by the Lord:

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. (18:15-17, ESV)

Plan for Adversity

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Recently I experienced a week long power outage after a nasty windstorm. I work at home, and my wife has a full-time ministry position working from home.  Given the necessity of work productivity, we have a backup power generator.  However, that didn’t solve our major problem. The Internet was down because the tower that transmitted the signal also lost power.  I worked around this challenge by venturing to town several times a day to collect and send e-mails.  I was able to use my iPhone as a backup even though the cell signal where I live is unreliable.  While this arrangement was not as efficient as normal, I was able to conduct most business fairly well. Customers expect this regardless of my personal situation.

Soup Plantation's Pricing Strategy

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I have eaten at the Soup Plantation, a chain mostly in the southwest. The restaurant charges $10 for an all-you-can- eat buffet, a good price point for family dinning. I could see how the buffet design was set up to limit food cost.

Retirement?

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I may catch some grief for sharing my perspective on retirement. I will anyway.

My parents were born in the 1920’s and started work in the 1940’s. At that time life expectancy was 65 when Social Security would kick in. The average American was never expected to fully retire or collect on Social Security. Many did not have pensions so they worked as long as possible.

Avoid Personal Liability for Your LLC

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Many business owners use a Limited Liability Corporation, or LLC, to form a business. This provides the ability to run a business as a sole proprietorship or as a partnership. The LLC provides a lot of protection for the owner from personal liability. However, you need to take some precautions.
