A few year's ago, I would have strongly suggested that you hire as many subs as you could on a project. Our primary reason was that they took away the risk on a project. They agree to do 'job a' for $x. If it cost them more, too bad. It was their nickle.
Now, I'm not so sure. We have had...
Oh boy. I don't get a warm feeling for what you are trying to do.
First, it sounds like you want to be a collector, and are trying to run the profits through a business. Collecting and the business of dealing in collectables aren't the same thing. If your only goal is to buy artwork, stick...
My son worked on LI for the NYS Park Police for a couple of years. Mainly on Jones Beach. I've been out there for a couple visits. Pretty area, but scary HUGE parking areas for a park! I think you could fit my home town in the Jones Beach parking lots. Not many parking lots have their own...
Hey Darius! I'm an Upstater, too. Just a bit more upstate than it looks like you are. (I looked up your IP).
My Brother-in-law lives down near you, in Marlboro. The company I work for has done several projects in Ulster County, too.
As for the hair salon, it can be Fastlane. I have a...
Speaking of... What HAVE you been up to lately, Russ?
Usually when you're this quiet things are either real bad or real good.
I'm hoping it is the latter and that you'll share it with us when the time comes.

I'd recommend that you ratchet down the niche to a sub-sub niche of what they are now.
Instead of an adult site, think of what they need or use:
Next, think of...
You can play around with CSS by using the Firebug plugin for Firefox.
Load any site, and you can change colors, widths, font size, and more. I'm not an expert at CSS, but Firebug (free) has helped me learn how to make modifications in it.

They are pretty smart guys, although Jon is no slouch either ;-)
One other thing you can try in the future, if you can find a way...
My son is a cop, but worked security in the past. In that line of work, they would set up little 'honesty tests' where they would do things like have a shopper go through the line and leave a wallet on the counter. Video...
I think you're talking about segregation of duties. In our company, my assistant enters all the checking account info from the bank statement, but I do the reconciliation. Our AP manager cuts all the checks, but I review all paid invoices.
Making sure no one has control of all processes...
I gave up the alcohol 24 years ago, but switch to pot -- about one pot a day.
Two weeks ago, I started getting headaches every day. Finally measured my BP and it was 169/102.
I got off the coffee and onto the treadmill, and my BP today was 132/84.
I was actually drinking 6-10 big...
