    do you have a "limit" to be in the red?

    Up here in Canada if after about 3 years youa re still in the red, they can come and tell you to close the co because you suck at managing it hehe.

    But these first ~3 years you can save on taxes with the expenses

    I think we have something similar but I don't recall anything about "forcing you to close up shop".

    The vast majority of my expenses were start up expenses so hopefully, I'll be in the black in a year or two.

    Sweet. Be prepared to subtract $17 from your taxes.

    technically he is white since his mother was white.

    Man, I gotta get you guys on the phone with my wife.

    I'm only out 3500, and she's about to take one of my testicles as payment if I don't start earning it back...

    My income level is probably a bit higher than yours so you can't equate my spending with your spending. It's all relative. Had I gone out and spent $40,000 my wife would be demanding both of my testicles.

    80% of my stuff is from my bonuses I had from last year through work. I can justify it to her because its the extra money I worked hard and busted my ass for. Now that I have a lot of the stuff I want/need, I doubt I'd spend near that this year. :dunno:

    When and if she becomes your wife she'll probably be just a bit more forceful in how she "suggests" you spend your money.

    I said IN the black so technically it would be his wife.

    Then if she only "suggests" how you spend your money, you're a lucky man.
