Personal Finance News Information Tips

Greetings all,

Since I never had many return visitors or subscribers and had only one comment in the last 5 months, I doubt anyone will actually read this. But that’s okay because I’m turning off comments in any case, so I’ll probably never know if anyone ever cared about most of the content here in the last few years or so.

However, if there were things here that interested you, here’s a bit of information for you. Many of the articles here will be repurpose elsewhere. They’ll either go to my accountant’s blog, who I write for, or my relatively local blog, Syracuse Wiki, where

4 Tips for Negotiating a Personal Guarantee

How to Negotiate a Personal Guarantee

If you get a loan from a bank or private lender for your business, you will probably be asked to sign a personal guarantee that puts your own assets — such as real estate, savings, or other valuables — on the line should your business be unable to pay the bank back.
