Without this information, you wouldn’t even know any of these people exist especially in the minds of the children. It goes without saying that starting or buying a business during a recession may not be the smartest thing to do.
Legendary rock drummer Carl Palmer says that either he or members of his band will meet with fans, just after his concert at the Canyon Club in Agoura, California on April 11, 2013.
There are some that have a very small silhouette of my face, or profile, which just happened to have come through. It wasn’t arranged. I was trying to be in complete darkness, just so we could get the actual shapes of the lights moving in the air as I played the drums.
So basically, downloading has killed off art. And it’s taken away a lot of money from people, and it’s (downloading) here to stay. There’s nothing you can do accountants about it.
Now we go back to the 180 Trillion dollars that run through the Federal Reserve every year. Remember how big that number is because it is very important. What if there was a four percent transaction fee on every dollar that went through the treasury every day. That would equal 7.2 TRILLION dollars. For the year of 2009 the federal budget is an estimated 3.1 TRILLION dollars. That would leave a 4.1 TRILLION dollar surplus to pay down debt or stimulate the economy. Personally the word surplus scares me a bit. Politicians usually just buy votes with the extra money and don’t really accomplish anything with it. I have a solution for that later on.

Closely related to a futile drive for perfection is a need to “finish” the site. This is also a trap. Website design is a lot like building a house. Once the site is up it needs to be maintained and improved. Your accounting or CPA website won’t ever actually be “finished”. If you wait to take your website public until it’s “finished” you’ll never get it up, and if you ever allow yourself to treat your website as “finished” it will quickly slide into obsolescence.
If a member of the audience nails you with a question you can’t answer, don’t be afraid to say, “I don’t know. I’ll have to look that up and get back to you.” Thrashing around for an answer–any answer–will be obvious to the audience and instantly kill your credibility.
