Re: Anyone switch back and forth?

The CSRs are highly incentivized to not have any canceled service during their shifts. Apparently more than 3 in one day is a sign that you are not working hard enough (and may get fired). This even applies if the disconnect is due to the customer [more]

Re: Purchasing business - agent needed?

But I did want to mention Score.org. A small business support organization that often has local volunteers who can help you both now in the purchase and in organizing your management.

Dependent Care Expense Question
