  • When It Comes to Your Employees, Stop Complaining and Start Training

    Much of the griping I hear from other business owners is about how the work effort of their employees is lacking. When I hear these complaints I’ll ask, “What are you doing to train your employees?” The usual response is something like, “Well I pay them and I don’t have time to train them. They either get it or they don’t.” In this scenario, it’s the business owner who doesn’t get it. Continual training of your team is one of my greatest takeaways from serving as a U.S. Marine. Their mission is simple: Marines are at war or training for war. ...

  • Emotional Intelligence in Negotiations

    Effective negotiators must strike a delicate balance between being aware of emotions, yet not becoming too emotional.  It’s critical to perceive and understand the emotions driving everyone at the table—yourself and your adversary.  This awareness will help you understand your adversary’s thought process and, in turn, use that understanding to push the negotiation in your desired direction.  The ability to identify and use emotions to your advantage during a negotiation is called Emotional Intelligence. The Business.com editorial staff recently posted an article on Emotional Intelligence, called, “Emotional Intelligence & Negotiating: Lessons from Harvard Business School.” To be a good negotiator, you need ...

  • Shifting Credit Card Transaction Liability – The Potential Impact on Your Business

    Beginning October 1, 2015, a shift in credit card security and in-store fraud liability could place unwary merchants and business owners at risk. EMV, which stands for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa, is a relatively new form of credit card (in the United States) that utilizes computer chip technology intended to help prevent transactional data breaches and credit card fraud.  In the U.S., most EMV credit cards contain the computer chips as well as the traditional magnetic stripe.  If a merchant does not have a payment processing system that accepts the computer chip, payments may be processed via the magnetic stripe as ...

  • Importance of a Survey When Purchasing Real Estate

    Clients often ask when purchasing a home, “Do I really need a new survey?” My reply ninety-nine percent of the time is, “Yes!” Clients are purchasing what is most likely to be their largest asset and the survey is the blueprint of what they are purchasing. It is the way in which the title company confirms and ultimately insures the property’s boundary lines. The title company will defend the purchaser’s clear title and ownership of the property as of the date of closing. Title companies will accept an old survey as long as it is guaranteed to a title company, even ...

  • Keeping Your Inheritance in a Divorce

    In past articles I’ve spoken about what documents you need to get rid of or update before, during, or after a divorce.  But what about your assets themselves?  For the happily wed, marriage should be about sharing everything, including gifts or inheritances given by parents, grandparents, or other relatives and friends. But when a marriage ends in divorce, there usually is no longer any desire to share assets.  Unfortunately, at that point it may be too late to keep inherited assets such as vacation homes, rare collections, cash, and other gifts away from a former partner, even if those assets were ...
