    I love when people order through freight brokers. I ship the computer to them, and that's the end of that. Especially with all the recent shipping delays, by the time the item makes it to the end...

    I can put together a team that I'll never probably watch if you'd like. My mother is in the hospital fighting cancer, so the SMF football league is so low on my list of priorities that it didn't even...

    For the i7 7700T's, I can offer $130 a piece on them, and for the 9700T $185. I can put them in computers, but honestly, they'll either end up on my shelf for six months or on eBay eventually. You...

    Steel is HIGH right now. I bought a combine (Deere 7700) at an auction this Spring for $800. I thought that was a little steep until one of the local scrap guys offered me $1400 for it on the spot. I...

    For me, it's not just the money. It's how I can help give back. When you see a struggling family that's fighting to make ends meet get a good computer for cheap that helps them to better their lives,...

    The best business plan is to start small, and find a niche that works for you. Some people have started scrapping out of the back of a car, much less a trailer. I work in the refurbishment side of...

    I was in a tax seminar where they talked about the PPP loans. The guy said not to take it in one chunk- it looks kinda suspect if it truly was "Payroll" then. He recommended 10% every week, but I'm...
