Sunset at the Lake

Last Tuesday night, I finished early at work and my husband came to fetch me. We drove around town to grab something to eat. We went to the lake to watch the sunset. It was a beautiful place to end a very tiring day and just relax together with my husband.

Let the March Group Help Sell Part of Your Business to Earn Working Capital

This is a sponsored guest post written by The March Group on behalf of The March Group. Post powered by Sponzai.

No matter how much a company earns or spends, that same business must have a great deal of ready cash that operators can access in order to pay costs and expand operations. To be successful, companies must always have a fund for this kind of working capital. If these companies do not have working capital, unexpected events could virtually kill their respective businesses.

Working capital enables a company to prosper, as well as survive an emergency. Responsible business people understand what happens when companies do not have working capital. They simply fail to grow, eventually going bankrupt. In a few of these cases, these businesses could have survived if they had less debt and more working capital.

In order to obtain working capital, business owners must sometimes sell a part of their companies. When that event arises, these operators need a strong, reputable financial firm to counsel them through the point of sale. They need The March Group.

The March Group is a firm of financial experts that acts as a mediator during acquisitions and mergers among middle-market companies. For almost twenty-five years, The March Group has worked in the best interests of clients throughout the world. A company that acts globally, as well as locally, The March Group knows the commitment that it takes to build a profitable business. That is why the firm works its hardest to ensure that its clients’ businesses prosper, even during the worst financial crises.

Selling a portion of one’s business is a great way to generate working capital, and The March Group remains with its clients until that point of sale. Once the papers are signed, however, the firm continues to counsel clients about the financial aspects of their companies. In the end, The March Group is not simply there for the sale; it will always continue to act in the interests of its loyal clients.

Team up with the March Group and Earn Money for Retirement

This is a sponsored guest post written by The March Group on behalf of The March Group. Post powered by Sponzai.

Andrew Carnegie started out with very little. As a young immigrant from Scotland, Carnegie worked several jobs throughout his young life in America. By his middle age, Carnegie had monopolized the mass production of steel with his Carnegie Steel Company. By the time he retired, selling his holdings to J.P. Morgan, Carnegie had more money than he could ever handle. As a result, he became one of the world’s most prolific philanthropists. Nearly one hundred years after Carnegie’s death, he is still considered one of the richest, most successful business owners that ever lived.

Sadly, not every business owner or entrepreneur is Andrew Carnegie. When these business owners retire, they will never have the money that Carnegie commanded during his philanthropic ventures. Nevertheless, business owners today can still sell their companies for a comfortable retirement. Seeking out the financial expertise of The March Group is the first step.

The life of a moderately successful business owner never parallels that of Carnegie’s fairy tale. Still, The March Group, a middle-market investment firm that specializes in mergers and acquisitions, works to ensure that business owners can turn a great profit from selling their businesses. The profits gained from sale ultimately allow these hard-working individuals to retire. With The March Group, these retirees can finally slow down and enjoy a retirement that allows them to still turn profits.

Starting a business takes a great deal of courage. Retiring from that same business takes even more determination. During the moments of uncertainty, The March Group will be there to help guide its clients toward retirement. While the majority of business owners will not turn the same profit from their company’s sale as that of Andrew Carnegie, The March Group ensures that these owners never need to worry about the nuts and bolts of business again. Instead, they can finally enjoy the easy life. Philanthropic endeavors are, of course, optional.

Busy at Work! myspace graphic comments

Yes! I am really working hard. It has been a busy week for me especially during the weekend of 4th of July. The campers keep on coming and the campground where I work was so full of campers. It was fun to see all of them here. I was overwhelmed. I didn't expect we have a lot of campers this year. It was truly a blessing! Thank you, God!

And now, I have to go back to work and I will keep on working hard. I will see y'all whenever I have time to blog. I will be visiting all your blogs on my vacation. Thanks!

My Own “Dark Ages”

Guest posting compliments of Andrea Moon

There have been few times in my life where I haven't had internet access. Growing up, Around the time of my later teens, it was something that was just always there. It was accessed everyday and sometimes even taken for granted. If you had questions you used the internet. You would forgo the traditional way of listening to music, seeing movies, having an infinite amount of available options to stream online.

There have been times where I haven't been able to afford the clear bundle. These times I often refer to "the dark ages". You feel out of the loop. You cannot instantly figure out the random questions, that pop up, and grate on your mind. The internet is extremely important in my life. It is the most often used source of media in my house. I use it to find recipes, to clip coupons, and text my boyfriend. I read blogs, and connect with people millions of miles away from me. I use the internet to shop, and to make money, marketing my skills. Social media is more often used to keep in touch with friends and family, then phone calls. I use an mp3 player, instead of cds, and i grab my music online. We plan trips, and get walking directions in town online. Sometimes, the internet is thought of as some distraction, something of little importance. The internet is my breath of fresh air, affording me to learn, and make the quality of my life significantly better.
