Mr. R. Shaky
Owner the Inn Restaurant
1 Country Inn Road
Upscale, Az.85251

Dear Mr. Shaky:
It has been a month since I was hired as GM of the Inn Restaurant. I am settling in well and look forward to a long prosperous relationship. I would like to take this opportunity to discuss with you some items of concern regarding the condition of the building. During this site inspection the following things caught my attention. * Old trees have grown so that their branches could become entangled in the power lines connected to the restaurant * Many of the windows have gaps possibly from the building settling * Water is not properly drained from the building. * Spider web pattern of cracks forming on the foundation. * The roof has tar paper that is pulled up in one section along with bird nests and tree branches. * There are also charred markings around the exhaust vent of the hood system.
These are all potentially hazardous situations for our guest and staff. If we do not take action to fix these issues it will not only affect our bottom line but our ability to stay in business at all in this facility.
The trees pose several problems. With the branches being so close to the power lines could potentially cause a fire if wind gust cause them to snap and clog up or wear down the gutter system. The roots could be clogging drains underground which could lead to expensive plumbing cost. The windows that have gaps in them are a major cause of our high energy cost. Water puddles up around the foundation because the current landscaping does not allow for the water to drain away from the building. On the roof the section with the pulled up tar exposes the inside of the building to the elements which can cause structural damage and affect heating…...

...For my interview I decided to pick the owner of the company I work for. The owner’s name is J. Kent McNew and he is the owner of Eastern Petroleum Corporation. The company is a petroleum distributor of gasoline primarily through gas station outlets. Eastern Petroleum Corporation is a Maryland corporation and its corporate office is located in Annapolis, MD. Mr. McNew sells products in MD, VA, DC, and some in DE. The scope of the business is done in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States. Eastern Petroleum is an S-Chapter corporation, which means S Corporations do not pay any income taxes. Instead, the corporation's income or losses are divided among and passed through to its shareholders. The shareholders must then report the income or loss on their own individual income tax returns. Mr. Kent said that he’s always had an entrepreneur spirit and it started way back when he was in grade school. He stated in his school each class had to sell garden seeds and he always sold the most in his class, so that inspired him to go into business. He worked for Hess Oil Company while attending the University of Richmond, realizing while selling products to his customers he wanted to go into business for himself. So he started the company called “Eastern Petroleum Corporation”. To come up with the corporation’s name he sat down with a legal pad and just wrote down different names that came to mind. He didn’t want to name the company after himself because his father had a company......

Owners Equity

...“the amount provided by stockholders to the corporation for use in the business” (Kieso, D. E., Weygandt, J.J., & Warfied, T. D., 2007). It is important to keep the two separate so the two are clearly stated for investor and stockholder information. Another reason it is important to keep the two separate is dividends are paid out of retained earnings. The money cannot be mixed up because it could have an effect on the amount of retained earnings, which will in turn, affect the amount of dividends to be paid. If paid in capital and earned capital are not kept separate, the net income could be overstated. As an investor, earned capital is more important than paid in capital. Paid in capital only shows a company can attract money from owners and/or investors. Investors want to see how much revenue a company can generate before he or she decides to invest. Earned capital will show an investor whether or not a company is profitable. If a company has a retained earnings balance that exceeds the amount of paid in capital, an investor is more likely to invest in that company. A company that has most of it money from investors could be a red flag to investors. This shows a company may be less willing to save their company because a lot of the owner’s money is not invested. As an investor basic earnings per share are more important than diluted earnings. Basic earnings “consist only of common stock or includes no potential common stock that upon conversion or exercise could......

...As a businessperson should it matter how we read and write? Why worry about reading strategies when we are crunching numbers and focusing on making a business excel, right? Wrong. “How to Read like a Writer”, an essay by Mike Bunn, explains to us how one’s reading and writing strategies can deepen your understanding of a piece of writing. Specifically strategies and techniques of reading like a writer. Not long after reading Bunn’s essay for the first time I was searching for articles concerning business owners and restaurant management and came across an article on The article is titled “Starting a Business? One Question Could Save You Years of Misery” by a man named Eric T. Wagner, a contributor to Forbes and writes about the core principals and secrets of entrepreneurship. The title quickly caught my attention and before I began to read, Bunn’s questions crossed my mind. What is the purpose of this piece of writing? Who is the author’s intended audience? With these tools sketched in my brain I began reading about six different types of entrepreneurs and businesses, and what sets them apart. Wagner goes into quick detail to paint a picture of what makes up every group on his list and how which group or type of businessperson you as a reader would best make. Wagner’s intended audience is quickly obvious to be newly ambitious, self-motivated businessmen and women. I realized knowing Bunn’s techniques of reading like a writer shed a new light on my reading......

Owners Equity investment vehicles. Corporations provide liability shielding and make it relatively easy to buy and sell shares. For this reason, business owners who intend to raise capital most often choose the corporate structure to do so. Owners in a corporation are called stockholders. Corporations exist to provide value to their stockholders. This value is reflected in stockholders' equity. For our paper, we decided to choose stockholders equity. This topic is one of the more important things we have learned so far. Understanding stockholders equity is essential to becoming a good investor. Stockholders' equity, also called shareholders' equity, is the owners' equity in the corporation. It appears on a corporation's balance sheet and reflects the owners' interest in the corporation. You are a stockholder whether you hold or own one share of stock in a corporation or 100 percent of the outstanding shares and are the sole owner. The shares you own, whether actual physical shares or shares documented on paper, reflect your ownership in the corporation. Owning a share of stock then will declare you as a valid shareholder within that company. On the balance sheet, assets less liabilities equal stockholders' equity. Therefore, stockholders' equity is also referred to as net worth. Stockholders' equity records how much you and other co-owners or investors have contributed to the corporation through the purchase of shares. These include any initial contributions and any additional......

...MEMO #1 Para: Gerente General De: Gerente de producción Asunto: Recomendación sobre política de cumplimiento de estándares razonables para trabajadores de contratistas extranjeros. Fecha: Jueves, 21 de mayo del 2015. El motivo de la presente es para dar mi recomendación sobre una de las políticas acerca del cumplimiento de estándares para los trabajadores de nuestros contratistas extranjeros. Pienso que es importante que como organización nos involucremos con los trabajadores de nuestros contratistas mediante una vigilancia de cumplimientos de estándares o normas. A esta política, agregaría la prohibición del trabajo infantil. Con esta política, vamos a asegurar que estos trabajadores tengan el derecho a trabajar en buenas condiciones por su seguridad, paga justa (no la que actualmente perciben, que es ridículamente baja), y procurar su salud. Generalmente en países asiáticos el trabajo infantil es normal, parte de su cultura, pero no de la nuestra. Existen razones por las cuales el trabajo infantil no es correcto, entre ellas el derecho que tienen a estudiar, jugar, etc. Con el cumplimiento de estándares razonables evitaremos futuros conflictos puesto que los descuidos en seguridad a este personal pueden desencadenar en problemas sociales (activistas laborales) y económicos así como ha ocurrido en los últimos años donde empresas estadounidenses han sido partícipes de esta situación. Como organización nos debe preocupar esto, debemos asegurar que aquellas......

...having the wallet declared to be “lost property” as opposed to “mislaid” and would he be entitled to the money as the finder of the wallet? Brief Answer Robert Langdon will not be successful in having the wallet declared as a lost property and he will have no claim to the money in the wallet. According to the general rule if the property is not found in plain sight and is concealed by some external barrier or there was a substantial effort required to find it, then the property is considered to be mislaid as opposed to lost. This is on the grounds that the owner of the property deliberately hid it in a place where it could not be found easily as opposed to lost property where the owner unintentionally loses his property. In the case of mislaid property, the possession of the property goes to the owner of the premises where it was found. Whereas in the case of lost property, if the property is not claimed by the owner within 12 months, the finder has the claim to the lost property. In this case, the cash was found in a wallet covered up on top of a pipe behind a divider which obviously demonstrates that the cash was concealed deliberately which implies that the property would be considered as misplaced. So in this situation the cash would be given over to the college and Langdon would not succeed in his case. Statement of Facts Robert Langdon, a construction worker, is an employee for Mason and Mason Construction Company. Currently, Mr. Langdon is working at the......

...SAMPLE BUSINESS MEMORANDUM (The business memo format is best suited for presenting analysis and results of an issue that requires no more than 2-3 pages of text and a couple of tables and exhibits.
