Adventures of an Entrepreneurial Introvert- The End, For Now

I hate small towns. After a few weeks of booming growth, I suddenly had no customers. I figured it was the approaching holiday season...that budgets were getting too tight for splurging on a convenience service. That's not it, Carl! So, in October, when business started trickling to a drip, I started looking for a part-time job to supplement my income. I tried not to take the decline to heart, and to keep a positive attitude. I am a bit self-conscious, so of course I had those nagging little thoughts that I had done or said something that had caused people to not want to call on me. Maybe my discomfort with social interaction was being picked up on, and people distrusted me because of that? Maybe the process was too complicated, and people were worried I was going to steal their money or something? Maybe someone more extroverted or well-known in the area had started their own errands service and were taking my business? But no...it was none of that. Like I said, I live in a small town. There is an interconnectedness that I really, REALLY didn't miss when I lived in the city. If someone likes you, everyone likes you; if someone doesn't like you, you become a pariah. And sentiments travel as quickly as gossip, and gossip travels faster than light. This isn't just a small town, either...it's a small town in the Bible Belt. Which means zero tolerance for any nonChristians. So, it doesn't really surprise me that I lost business so quickly and absolutely when my mother-in-law let it slip that I am not Christian. What does surprise me is that it was almost a month before I learned for myself what was going on. But I'm not going to concern myself with it...lesson learned. Hopefully, I can find somewhere else to settle down and try my hand at an errands service once again, but until then....I'm pretty excited to offer my services in corrections!

I disagree with small towns being an issue it's the prejudice and judgemental attitudes that are nurtured within everyone. A small town usually has a concentrated and volatile selection of people with these poisonous attitudes because of the idle time that is usually more than ample causes boredom and can result in using time to serve their own egos. We can choose to listen to or ignore our egos. We can choose to be happy or to relent to worship our egos and learn our lessons the hard way. I love your attitude and keep on keeping on!

The practical answer to this million-dollar question, literally, lies in this application called GoJek. GoJek is an all-in-one application that gives you the services of cabs, ride-sharing, food delivery and a lot of other services.

Jungkook No Longer Baby Boy (+19)
Que tal peeps! WE ARE STILL COUNTING DOWN TO JUNGKOOK'S BIRTHDAY IN THE AMS COMMUNITY. THIS IS A QUICK FANFICTION THAT CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT! Jungkook has always been like a little brother to you and you always looked after him, especially when the guys picked in him. You were planning a special birthday surprise for him with the guys. "He should be happy he gets a cake." Yoongi scuffed. "Well well now lets not be too mean Yoongi...he is the youngest." I said while writing down ideas. You and the guys came up with a plan. You and Jin would bake a cake and cook food. Hobi and Tae would clean up while Namjoon and Yoongi decorated. "Namjoon please don't break anything." Hobi laughed. Namjoon rolled his eyes and laughed. The next day it was super hot in the office and all you wanted to fo was take a shower. You rushed home and jumped into the shower. Jin would be shopping for food with Namjoon while the others bought decorations. Jungkook would be at the library volunteering so everything should be finished then. The water felt so good as you allowed it to hit your skin. You had your relaxing body wash. You inhaled the lavender scent and lathered up your body sponge. You began cleaning and singing when you seen a pair of eyes looking in the small crack of the door. You paused thinking you seen something else. You didn't know if your mind was playing tricks on you. Then you looked back and no one was there. You finisjef showering and walked down to your room. You noticed Jungkook's door was cracked. This was strange cuz he always locks his door. You pay no mind and get dressed. The crew arrived and you all get to preparing the surprise birthday for Jungkook. You were pleased how everything played out. Namjoon only broke 3 things which is good. You walked to your room to get an extra present you brought for Jungkook when you noticed your pantry drawer was opened. Your neatly arranged panties were all a mess. You picked up the present wrapped in shiny red wrapper and seen that Jungkook's door was cracked wider. You walked down the hall and heard odd noises. "Yass gosh noona..." You peeped your head in without makjng a sound and saw Jungkook with your panties in his hand. He was licking a pink pair with a red pair wrapped around his man hood. Jungkook was stroking himself. You found yourself shook for a moment. But then you began watching out of enjoyment. Your breathing goth heavier. Jungkook slowly his hand motion and grinned. "I know you are watching me noona." You covered ur mouth. But a gasp escaped ur wet lips. "Jungkook why do you have my panties? "Noona you know I want you. I made that clear last week when I spanked the hell out of you. Remember you made me promise not to tell." You walked into his room and closed the door. "Shh boy that was a mistake." "A mistake?" Jungkook said while raising his eyebrow. He smiled while looking at the gift I had. "Nice wrapping but do you know what I really want noona?" Jungkook smirked. Jungkook walked closer to be still hard as a brick and stood behind me allowing his hard on to rub between by cheeks. He let out a groan. "I know you been with all the guys nonna, they brag about it. I want you now." Jungkook said. "Jungkook...look those days are behind me. I'm no longer group banging trash." "Okay I will just spread the word at work." Jungkook laughed. "Fine Jungkook." I hissed. Jungkook pushed me on my stomach while sliding my shorts to the side. He was happy to see I had in no panties. He stuffed a pair or my panties he had in my mouth and plunged deep inside me without mercy. The pink wet panties muffled my scream of pleasure. Jungkook pounded me hard and fast. "Noona you were all wet from watching me?" Jungkook smacked my butt hard. "ANSWER me. You like watching me wack off?" I nodded as he pulled me hard into him. He switched so we were facing the mirror and began pounding me hard hitting all my spots. "Look at that little face. You love it noona. Yoongi said you like it rough." I surprised Jungkook and pusjed him back on his butt. I climbed on top of him. "You gotta do more to get me off little baby boy." I said while grinning. I began riding him hard and fast while pulling his hair. He began sucking my right breast as I rode him. "Yass that's a good baby boy." I moaned. I could see he was coming to the edge and so was I. The room echoed of slapping skin. "Noona yasss! Oh shit!" Jungkook moaned while exploded in me. The explosion made me go over the edge. My vision was so blurry. Suddenly the crew busted in "Happy Birthday Jungkook!" "Shit looks like we got to the party late." Yoongi blurted.

How to enhance your cab business to adapt to the modern generation?
Are you a taxi fleet owner who is not satisfied with the revenue generated by your taxi business? Have you tried several ways to improve your business yet never witnessed improvement? Yes? Maybe it’s time for a change. This five minutes good read will guide you to change the way your business operates. Upgrade your business Don’t get stuck with the conventional way of taxi booking. Move on and make use of the technology to transform your business. With the advent of on-demand apps that provides an option to book a cab in a single tap, your target audience will no longer be interested in calling your taxi business to make their bookings.  Get your business an app that makes both your life and the lives of your customers easy. As you’re planning to develop an on-demand app for your taxi business, you need to consider including a few features that can add value to your business. Pre-booking management Enable a feature that lets your user book your taxi in advance. You can have a full view of the advanced bookings in the admin panel, assisting you in managing your fleets accordingly. You’re also provided with the details of all real-time bookings taking place through the app. Chat option Adding a chat option will help in addressing the issues of both the users and drivers effectively. It helps in improving the overall experience and the working of your taxi app. Also, it increases trust among your target group and makes them prefer your business over your competitors for their future bookings.  Also, when a customer is stuck in a meeting or classroom where he/she couldn’t call the driver, chat feature lets them communicate with the driver to wait, postpone, or cancel the ride. Effective cost estimates Generally, trips are categorized into airport rides and rides inside the city. Airports rides take quite a long time than regular rides. If you have the same fare for airport rides as regular rides, then you would end up running your taxi business in a loss. So have a different billing strategy for airport rides and be clear about it to avoid confusion among your users. Enable audio notifications As drivers are continually riding the taxis, most often, they won’t be getting the chance to check your app. It’s better to let them know about the upcoming rides or other vital details through the integration of the audio notification feature to your app. The user can also be provided with the same functionality to keep them posted about your offers and discounts. This makes the app user-friendly in the eyes of both the drivers and the users. Go for Uber clone apps Enough of the detailing about features to be included by your app, let’s get into the actual development phase of your app. As we mention app development, many people will think that the process is going to consume a lot of time to hit the market. Don’t fret. We have got you covered. Several app development companies have on-demand Uber clone apps on board that can be easily customized. All you have to do is find the app development firm that suits your requirements and cost, get them to personalize the Uber clone scripts.  So, what are you waiting for? Get your taxi app business developed like a pro and rock the ride-hailing industry.
What is the statute of limitation on credit card debt relief Florida?
The statute of limitations on debt is handled on a state by state basis. The laws may vary, and some types of debt at the federal level never die, such as student loans and taxes. In Florida, there are several types of debt that are subject to the statute of limitations. ● Debts covered by written contracts or promissory notes are collectible for five years from the date of the last payment. ● Credit card debt, oral contracts, and open-ended accounts are collectible from four years from the date of the last payment. ● Judgments, such as those from small claims court, lawsuits, and fines, are collectible for twenty years from the date that it is issued. ● Judgment liens are good for ten years but may be renewed for another ten years. Depending on your type of debt and when it was incurred, those debts may be considered uncollectible by law. How debt collections work As usual, there are exceptions. Let's take a moment to talk about debt collectors and how they operate. Collection agencies can be either one person with a desk, a phone, and a file of debtors or a massive phone room filled with hundreds of people calling debtors across the country. Some are contracted to companies big enough to outsource the handling of their delinquent accounts while others buy debts for pennies on the dollar and then try to collect on it. Debts are bundled like securities and sold, sometimes to more than one company, and then the phone starts ringing. The older the debt, the cheaper it is to buy - even when that debt is covered by the statute of limitations. Lies and Dirty Tricks "Can you pay something, anything, on this debt today?" It sounds like a reasonable request. It's not. What happens if you pay something on this debt, even if it falls outside the statute of limitations? It brings the debt back to 'life.' Your old debt relief Florida is reanimated by a simple payment; the account becomes 'live,' and the owner of the debt can take every legal recourse available to collect it. They can take you to court, garnish your wages, even levy your bank account if they wish to take it that far. How can you stop them? Know your rights. Stop the Collectors Cold The first thing you need to know is that all it takes to stop the calls and letters is, "Stop contacting me." It's as simple as that, and if the collector is following the FDCPA laws - a federal-level law that governs debt collection business practices - they will stop calling. However, telling them to stop calling doesn't prevent them from taking actions to collect. It's very important to validate the debt, and then inform them that the credit card debt relief Florida falls outside the statute of limitations for Florida and is not legitimate. When to Get Help Some collectors count on ignorance of your rights to collect on time-barred debts. When they are threatening you, calling your family, your friends, or even your boss to bully you, its time to get expert hap in the form of an attorney experienced in rogue collectors. It's the law that they must communicate with your attorney and leave you alone, and an experienced attorney is your best way to stop the rogues cold.
