    Liuv's been doing that for a bit now. I'm sure he can chime in.

    On a completely unrelated note, my company is up 20% year over year for two years in a row. That'd be great, but we're still at the same staffing level we were at 2 years ago. I've got new projects and opportunities all over the place, but I'm terrified about our ability to service them. I've got one customer wanting to turn over $3-4 million in new sales to me as quick as we can manage it, but that'd be nearly 15% growth all by itself and probably a 20% growth in line items shipped out the door. There's no way we can manage that without some planning and growth.

    Naturally, management has been preoccupied with one of the owners working in the warehouse filling orders and the other doing inside sales duties since both departments are chronically understaffed.

    I'd talk to my boss about it, but he's in the middle of a messy divorce cause his wife found out he's been having an affair with the purchasing contact at one of his customers.

    Good time to be alive I tell you.

    Suddenly my self employment tax problem seems pale by comparison.

    Sounds like Drewbie's time to shine! Figure out the solution, implement it, take over the company, profit!

    Trying so hard to do this. If there were any way to make it happen quicker, I'd be doing it.

    Maybe his wife will get the company and sell it to you for 1$.

    Sorry, can't help. I've been W2 this whole time. All the pay of a do-nothing consultant with all the benefits of an actual employee!

    My boss has no ownership stake. He's just a lackey at a higher level.

    My dad used to do this incorporated-contracting type of stuff all the time. But that's cold comfort, he's also the sort of person to have read every page of every document he's ever signed, thoroughly cross-referencing it all with applicable legal and technical materials. While kicking my ass in a game of chess. He pisses me off.

    Drewbie: is your boss's wife single?

    I think it is probably more meaningful to ask if she is hot. The single thing sounds like it is taking care of itself.

    But anyway... okay... so I guess I'll just keep looking stuff up. Thanks for bringing me down, Liuv.
