Where the smart money is going: elite prep school...My gifted niece is 12-years-old and my brother is starting to think about where to send her to high school.

Georgetown MPS in real estate - 2014 updateI've searched WSO and found a few threads on this program, but most of the threads are pretty dated at this point. I'm starting the program this month.

Quick income tax questionHey, I get paid out on my work usually 2-4 weeks after the fact. For example, my July profits are paid out to me by our corporate structure in middle to late August. How does one account for this when filing income taxes? For example, my December 2012 profits will be paid out no later than January... 2 years 12 months

Naming a business. Tough examplesI haven't been able to find the answer to this question on Google (not sure how to frame it in a search function), but can a new business be named after a defunct business?

Anyone else have business partner issues?So my best friend is also my business partner. He and I are both (ownership) partners in a branch of a larger mortgage bank. He and I are doing good business and we're set to make a lot of money in 2012, a ton of money in 2013 and illegal money in 2014. He and I have very different personalities,... 3 years 7 months

My grievances against the present administrationDuring the GOP primary the debates between supporters have become pretty heated. But I think some voters get lost in the weeds of their political philosophies. For me it is absolutely essential to throw out Barack Obama, if for no other reason than to repeal Obamacare. A lot of "conservatives"... 3 years 7 months

He is the most pro-free market/pro-Wall St of practically all the candidates. He worries me with his attitude and how that would affect foreign policy, but his presidency certainly wouldn't hurt... 1 week 1 hour
