Best Practices For Saving Money In Plumbing Projects

Regardless of how scared you are about plumbing nightmares, they will happen – soon. Your toilet seat may decide to break when you’re having Thanksgiving celebrations or when you’re having a barbecue for family. Irvine is known for these issues. Rather than live with these sources of embarrassment, you have to contact a leading plumbing company like Fanning Plumbers to bail you out.
From our experience, we have been fortunate enough to identify a few things you can do to save money off plumbing issues.

Prevent And Maintain Your Plumbing Systems
We understand that you live a very busy life filled with lots of deadlines, kids, school, etc. But the truth is, by focusing on being busy, we tend to overlook the much needed repairs or maintenance routines for our home water and sewerage systems.

For example; it takes sometime for particles to accumulate in the home drainage systems, so does it take for grease within moving pipes to dry. By overlooking maintenance (by yourself or through hiring someone) for these systems, you escalate the small problem into a bigger, more costly one.

To stay on top of the needed maintenance processes, get in touch with a plumbing company like Fanning Plumbers of California for a maintenance contract. In the long term, you’ll end up saving a lot of money.
Only Use Affordable Professionals
One of the most common mistakes we see a lot of people making is going for the cheapest plumbing quote they can find on the web. The truth is, why is a plumbing company offering massive discounts to you if they are paying highly qualified plumbing contractors?

Since plumbing is such an essential aspect of the home, you should take the hiring of plumbing professionals very seriously. Apart from comparing different plumbing quotes against deliverable, you should also stick to hiring only the best plumbing professionals. This not only saves money directly, but also does it indirectly when quality, lasting work is performed.

Think About Replacements
Lets face it, operating with faulty faucets long enough is extremely challenging. It is also very costly if you have to carry out repairs repeatedly. The ideal way to save money on “chronic” repairs is to consider total replacement or overhaul.

Research has shown that people who replace extremely used up faucets, toilet seats or broken sinks tend to save a lot of money. Sometimes, replacing is the only way to kiss your plumbing issue nightmares goodbye.

Research Your Irvine Plumbers
Due diligence can seem like a lot of work for you. However, do you know that it can help you save a lot of money and time if done accordingly? Finding a good plumber has become harder owing to the massive numbers operating handyman companies. However, if you make it your policy to thoroughly vet every plumber, including us, you will save money on good workmanship as well as accrued discounts.

In conclusion, if you never thought it was possible to save money with plumbing, we hope that this article has changed your mind. Apply the message therein in all your plumbing endeavors and you will save a lot of money.


2017 Taxes: Accountant or Self-Filing?

I'm wondering whether I should pay an accountant to file my 2017 tax return or if it's possible / advisable to file through something like turbotax.

Some information

  • I started a small psychotherapy practice this year.

  • I currently have the business set up as a sole proprietorship.

  • Ideally, I would like to grow the business enough to have other clinicians as employees, take on interns, etc.

  • I have educated myself enough to know the basics of accounting, but I could use more feedback.

According to my profit and loss statement for this year, as of last month, I expect to have a negative pre-tax net profit. In the case where my business expenses exceed my revenue, can I assume I don't pay federal, state, or SECA taxes on the profit?

I also have some W4 income as well.

Should I file 2017 taxes through an accountant or do any of you good folks self-file?

Are CPAs the best people to ask about the financial side of running a business or some other professional?

Going soloish starting an insurance & fee based RIA/ Broker-Dealer.

Myself and two other very close co-workers want to go start our own investment advisory firm. We've been around the biz for about 5 years a piece. Between Fidelity, Merrill, and a small fee only RIA. We all have our 7, 66, and insurance licenses along with ChFCs and MBAs.

I'm thinking that we go with TD Ameritrade as our custodian. Not sure yet who to choose for insurance products, thinking Jackson national life. NCS for compliance. We'd really like to do our bread and butter for lead generation, seminars and Facebook ads. Focus of practice will be on holistic wealth planning aka tax planning, asset protection, retirement income, etc.

We want to sell variable annuities, indexed annuities, life insurance, and fee based managed accounts. I assume we would need to be both an RIA and broker dealer to sell all of this.

Portfolios will be composed based on economic needs and risk tolerance.

Were looking at a business loan if 100-150k to get us going and give us each a salary until we convert our books.

If anyone has ever done this or something close to this I'd love some feedback and additional input on our plan thus far. Thanks!

Need advice- complicated

Hey all, new to reddit. So here's the deal. Saved up $16k to open a small gun shop. Started going through the processes, and hit a major mountain of political bs. Basically I'm going to need several $100k to buy an established shop, and pay bribes. Although owning a gun store is my dream, it's looking now like that's not going to be a possibility anytime soon.

So with that said, what are some small- moderate risk businesses I could persue with the following criteria: 1. $20K or less 2.Nothing computer heavy (other than online sales) 3.Least amount of licensing, or something I could do out of my property under the radar.

I live in a hardcore authoritarian right-wing midwest state, with not a whole lot of anything around. Few people start a business in my state do to regulations, and cost associated with said regulations, as well as extremely high business theft (taxes). The people in my area don't have a whole lot, so there's not money for high dollar products (other than guns). I'm not expecting to get rich, and plan on getting a decent paying part-time job to pay the bills till the business is self sustaining.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Advice on how to grow a software development business?

I'm a software developer that started a software development business with a focus on business productivity and accounting software.

Backstory: I'm a full stack .Net developer that was working in Mexico but because of the insecurity I decided to come to the US and open my business here. Currently located in South Texas.

Right now 80% of my work comes from Mexican companies that need modules and interfaces to work with Contpaqi Software which is like Quickbooks in Mexico. I'm also planning on growing in the Quickbooks market like I did in Mexico.

My current rate is of $50 an hour. This month I've made $2000 and I'm finishing a contract for a squarespace website that I quoted on $2000 so I will finish the month with $4000.

In my last post I was told my rates were too low and too high. I don't really have any business experience and I want to get all the advice I need to create and grow a successful business.

Any advice. What should I know? I know this post might be too general but I'll answer more specifics if you ask.

Edit 1: In my current business model clients find me by word of mouth. Then we have a meeting (no charge) to discuss project overviews. I then analyze the requirements and depending on the size of the application I use a Waterfall or Agile methodology. Most of the applications are small, less than $1000, so most of my work is Waterfall. I have no long term contract for support to play the "long game". But one of my problems is that my work usually works correctly for long periods of time so most of my work has to be new work and repeat clients.
