Have I got a deal for you...

I own a motorcycle shop in Greeley. So the deal is biz sucks right now... And my import/dirt bike suppliers are on my ass to spend more money with them... Today I am meeting with one of them to make a $1500 order just to keep the right to buy parts from them...

I sell all brands and types of parts. My shop stocks 90% H-D parts. However I deal with some big names in the power sports industry so I can pretty much get anything...

I can save you pretty much 30-40% off any aftermarket parts for the imports/dirt bikes... On the H-D stuff not so much I pretty much have that area covered...

For instance tires for a KTM ADV... Conti TKC80 Rear $210 retail, ADV price $146 + shipping
Conti TKC80 front $120 retail, ADV price $84 + shipping or come pick the stuff up and save more cash...

I am not doing this to make money! Just trying not to spend my money as more of them try to cut me off, and then I go back to paying retail for my dirt bike parts...

I can give you links to whom I deal with to look up your parts. Or just let me know of a supplier and I will tell you if I deal with them or not...

Here is my website link, look under contacts for my # and ask for Thomas...

Well this thread isn't updating too often. Guess the status for most of unemployed types hasn't changed much this year.

So what's a fella to do? Start his own business I guess. I know a lot of you are self employed, but this is a new venture for me. Not that it is something that you will all want to PM for and buy one, but I am now in the business of selling some new and refurbished ultrasound systems.

So what can you do for me? Well if you have any relatives, friends, contacts etc that happen to be connected to a doc's office or hospital in some way and they happen to work with ultrasound systems in anyway, spread the word! Please!

Thanks and wish me big time luck, I'm gonna need it.

Utah Design / Build Company

I am in Ogden, Utah down on historic 25th street. What I have to offer is 2 companies.

The first is Lundin Design Group, LLC., a architectural design company. I've been in business since 1994. My niche is on one-off homes in SW Florida. Since moving to Utah in 1997 I have completed quite a few "mountain style" homes as well. Also, some light commercial and multi-family projects are in the portfolio. I have a quick turn-around time which is what keeps my repeat business thriving.

The second is Haydin Builders, INC., a B100 (residential & commercial) licensed and insured general contracting company. I started this in 2004 as an extension of Lundin Design to be able to offer a competitive and comprehensive design / build package. We keep very little overhead so to date we have been able to save 15%-30% on projects compared with competitive bids. We have prior experience in single family homes, custom homes, tract home subdivisions, multi-family, medical facilities, commercial big box. We cover Salt Lake City, Park City, Northern Utah, and parts between.

Both companies can be utilized in unison or individually.

I have started a web page that is a work in progress so check it every now and then. Any comments and critique is welcome. www 'dot' dbventure 'dot' net.

Thank you,

Karl Lundin

Joined the new economy

... The kind of economy where I don't have a job. I was laid-off about a month ago and have been working out out various options.

But the wife is doing well and I'm getting to play Daddy Daycare amongst other ventures.

Although it is unlikely this time of year, I'm a land surveyor with my SIT, 8-years of experience, two-degrees and am submitting my application for the Colorado PLS. I've worked as a project surveyor for the past four years doing field-to-finish work - RTK GPS, Robotic Total Stations, LDD and Civil 3D. I'm willing to take part-time, indoor or outdoor or travel based work. I've worked solo for the past 2-3 years.

Of a less esoteric nature, I've always worked on the side doing remodeling and handyman services through my own little business - services include:
- Flooring
- Drywall
- Paint - even fancy schmancy texture looks (I'm like Norm from "Cheers" - I just get color).
- Framing
- Trim
- Landscaping and tree work

Reasonable rates and will do small jobs.
Pics, resumes, and samples on request.

Thanks and good luck to all those looking for work.

Sales people and canvassers needed

In search of salespersons.

I have a small Boulder based roofing company that is in need of a few or several salespeople. Prior roofing experience and/or knowledge is not a requirement. We are primarily a residential reroofing company, specializing in insurance claims. This is commission based work. It is not rocket science. How much you make is dependent on you. It is not as easy as sitting at home licking envelopes, but it is not as difficult as sitting at home all day licking envelopes.

Also, if you are more interested in part time work, are a good communicator, are tenacious, and don't mind the fears and frustrations involved with knocking on peoples doors, and can trust a salesperson to come in after you and close the deal, we have positions for that as well.

The one thing about these jobs is that we will all know fairly quickly if the shoe is a good fit.

If you have any interest, please shoot me a PM with your info, and I will call you or email you back.

Thank you,

Solar Panel Interest?

Starting next month the Governor's Energy Office [GEO] will offer a statewide solar rebate to homeowners and businesses outside of Xcel and Black Hills service areas.

I own a company named Denver Alternative Energy and we're scrambling to get as many people as possible to install a system before Xcel lowers their Solar Rebate. We are practically giving away systems at $5.50/watt!

Anyone a lawyer?

I was in a 3 car accident last week. I was not at fault and the other driver was ticketed. Driver was highschool age driving a vehicle registered to her parents.

Dad initially wanted pay out of pocket if I could take it to someone I knew with whom I know could get it done inexpensively with used parts. Well that fellow is on the injured reserve list right now. I went and got an estimate from my local one and only body shop, which uses the standard computer system to price jobs.

$4800 was the total. Vehicle is worth about $5800 clean retail NADA to $8500 clean retail edmunds.

I want to collect quickly and get it fixed. I picked up the tow with my AAA and had it towed to my garage to avoid storage fees.

Well, the owner wanted me to take it to some guy he knew that works out of his house in Buena Vista. I said no, at this point I want to go through insurance. He wasn't happy.

So any lawyer interested in making a call or two to get me reimbursed for the repairs, a SUV rental and the day I didn't make it to work?
