[b][url=http://www.rolexonlinesales.com]watches[/url][/b] If you sign up for a gig slinging drinks at a place called Redneck Heaven , where the staff operates like a sorority and the standard uniform is cowboy boots and very little else, you can bet your daisy dukes there will be some wild nights. And lots of big...tips.

What the Crowdfunding Boom Means for Franchising By Jason Daley | Entrepreneur – Mon, Aug 19, 2013 7:00 PM EDT
[b]watches[/b] When Tom Perez left the Navy in 2010 after 10 years of service, he thought his experience as a military police supervisor would easily translate into a job in law enforcement. That wasn't the case. After applying for more than 100 positions around the U.S., the 32-year-old gave up on that dream and started looking at franchises. When he applied for a Meineke Car Care Center in Pensacola, Fla., he was quickly accepted. With a 25 percent discount on the franchise fee for veterans, and 75 percent funding through the company, he was in much better shape financially than most franchisees, who still struggle to find credit in the commercial market.
[b][url=http://www.mreplicawatches.com]swiss replica watches aaa+[/url][/b] But Perez knew that despite his advantages, his first year in operation would be tough. Slow sales or unforeseen circumstances could easily jeopardize his new business. So he signed up with Boost A Hero, a program sponsored by the franchise crowdfunding platform Sprigster that allows friends, family and appreciative strangers to donate cash to help veterans open franchises. His Sprigster campaign helped Perez raise almost ,000 from 34 donors in the spring and summer of 2012. While the money was not make-or-break, it did give him the confidence to go ahead with the business.
[b][url=http://www.mreplicawatches.com]top brand watches[/url][/b] "It definitely made me feel like other people were invested in my project," he says. "I still get e-mails from people who boosted me from out of state, and donors who live nearby come to the shop for just about everything that needs to be done to their cars."
[b][url=http://www.mreplicawatches.com]high quality replica watches[/url][/b] It's a nice story about how crowdfunding is coming to the franchise world's aid. It's also, so far, one of the only stories.
[b][url=http://www.mreplicawatches.com]swiss replica watches[/url][/b] Crowdfunding has made a big splash in the last few years as sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have helped entrepreneurs launch donut shops, produce albums and create smart watches; theoretically, it's a perfect vehicle for franchising. And the franchise community, still suffering from the never-ending credit crunch, is eager to embrace it, believing it could help reenergize unit sales. But the current generation of donation-based crowdfunding platforms doesn't mesh particularly well with the franchise model. Donors are interested in funding new products and creative or cutting-edge businesses, not in subsidizing sandwich shops and quick lubes. Also, the small amounts raised through crowdfunding--typically a few thousand dollars--are not enough to replace bank loans or other financing needed by aspiring franchisees.
[b][url=http://www.mreplicawatches.com]copy watches[/url][/b] But equity-based crowdfunding--in which investors buy a slice of a small business--could be quite useful to franchisees. The JOBS Act, signed into law last spring, includes a provision that will make it legal for small businesses to solicit crowd-based investments of up to million. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is currently working out the details on how to implement the law, and the decisions it makes are critical: If the regulations are too burdensome, they could put the kibosh on crowdfunding for franchises before it even starts. If, however, the SEC's rules are reasonable, they could open up a whole new path to franchise ownership.
A Natrual Fit
"We certainly believe crowdfunding has tremendous potential for franchise finance specifically," says Mark Mohler, a Florida business lawyer and CEO of Sprigster, which is currently donation-based but could convert to equity crowdfunding once the SEC releases its rules. "It provides for the true democratization of private equity."
Daniel Gorfine, director of financial markets policy and legal counsel at the Milken Institute, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based think tank that investigates innovations in capital markets, has co-authored several reports on the JOBS Act and securities crowdfunding. "There are certain things that make crowdfunding and franchising a natural fit," he says. "Number one, the size of the investment from the franchisee is not so great that it would exceed the million limit. Next, most franchisees aren't interested in seeking late-stage investments like some small businesses. Having tens or hundreds of shareholders sometimes scares away venture capital groups, but that doesn't really matter here.
"But the most important thing," he adds, "is that crowdfunding creates a natural clientele. If you start out with 100 or 1,000 local investors, it might be a nice base of customer support and people invested in your success. The investors can see the property and business, and that adds enhanced credibility to the investment."
Gorfine also believes crowdfunding could become a novel way for franchisors to screen candidates and assess demand for their products. "There could be a situation in which a franchisor does a prequalification contingent on a candidate being able to successfully raise money from crowdsourcing," he says. "A franchisor could get feedback about how desirable a particular franchise would be in a certain location. The local community could tell them if they want a coffee shop on this corner or not. They could tell a franchisee, 'If you raise a certain dollar amount or number of investors, we'll be able to do a transaction with you.'"
Jonathan Sandlund, who runs online research and advocacy platform TheCrowdCafe, contends that crowdfunding could be a major step forward for equal opportunity. "This has an enormous potential to bring access to capital to franchisees without networks of wealth," he says. "Banks are really pulling back, and right now if you need ,000 or 0,000 to start a franchise, you have to be wealthy or be connected to wealthy friends and family to get it. This will put people on equal footing."
Sandlund also argues it's a great opportunity for investors. "Studies show that only 13 percent of Americans trust the stock market. But there's really no other place to go with your money," he says. "They can get 0.5 percent from their checking account, or go into bonds, which have been weak also. With crowdfunding there will be an opportunity to invest locally."
Despite the potential for opportunities on several fronts, Gorfine points to problems that could arise from equity crowdfunding. Franchisees might intentionally or inadvertently promote their established franchise brand as being a less risky investment than a mom-and-pop shop, putting them at risk for charges of fraud. At the same time, if crowdfunding loosens access to capital, franchisors might start to greenlight franchisees and locations that they otherwise wouldn't, creating risk and weakening their brands. And if franchisees aren't investing their own cash, there's a chance they won't take their work as seriously as people who have dumped their life savings into their businesses.
"A lot of this is going to depend on the quality control of the franchisor," Gorfine points out. "Those that operate efficiently and have good quality control will have a better chance of doing well, vs. a franchise willing to grant a store to anyone able to come up with the capital."
In other countries, including Australia and the U.K., debt- and equity-based investment crowdfunding has been implemented successfully. Sandlund's TheCrowdCafe has aggregated a global database of more than 0 million in crowdfunding transactions, across six platforms, that show no incidents of fraud.
Other models, including peer-to-peer lending, have demonstrated that crowd-based investments aren't as risky as critics once feared. Lending Club, for example, has coordinated .6 billion in loans between investors and borrowers since launching its online platform in 2007, including million in small-business and franchise loans averaging ,000 to ,000. Scott Sanborn, Lending Club's chief operating officer, says crowdsourced funding is one of the few viable options left to small-business owners. "There really aren't a ton of great options out there. Entrepreneurs can turn to family and friends or business credit cards, which still have high costs and variable rates," he says. "I think this is a space where there is real need. And I don't think anybody has jumped in with both feet to fill it on any sort of large scale."
The big question is whether the SEC rules will be favorable to franchise crowdfunding. Despite a year of hearings and public comments on the subject, no one really has a clue about which way the regulatory agency is leaning. The International Franchise Association (IFA) came out in support of the JOBS Act last year and is hopeful that the rules will be beneficial to franchisees. "There's an ongoing lending shortfall, and we believe any effort to jump-start new businesses or franchises is going to help the economy," says Matthew Haller, the IFA's vice president of public affairs and chief of staff. "The SEC is moving slower than we anticipated, but it's important to get things right when you have a new initiative. We're eager for the rules to come out."
TheCrowdCafe's Sandlund believes certain banks and investment firms may be trying to delay the SEC and convince them to limit crowdfunding. "There are definitely people trying to burden the process who are beneficiaries and incumbents of our current inefficient investment system," he says. "But it's our right to walk into a casino and gamble or buy a house that may lose equity. Who's to say we can't risk our money in a local business or startup? It's opposed to our country's values. Currently there's not equal opportunity in our financial markets. It has to change, and it will. And if it's not done right the first time, we'll have to go back and fight for it some more."

The Stock Market, Vegas, and Car Auctions: They could be valued as the same concept in trade, except for one tactile observation. The art of purchasing and maintaining historical engines is much more sexy.
[b][url=http://www.goodstiffanyoutlet.com]tiffany outlet store[/url][/b] Having just come off Concours Week in Carmel, California, I have a renewed appreciation for the vehicular world, and a ‘better late than never’ feeling from having attended such pageantry.
[b][url=http://www.goodstiffanyoutlet.com]tiffany jewelry outlet[/url][/b] Carmel Concours on the Avenue: a parade of pride and excellence as collectors showcased hundreds of foreign and domestic cars on the streets of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Alloy steel and carbon fiber bespoke greatness, strategically placed by category; some receiving an occasional hood ornament-to-boot ‘polish and covet’ dusting by their owner, glad to have avoided what is normally a day fraught with misty fog in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Instead, everyone was in top spirits that day, basking in California sunshine.
[b][url=http://www.goodstiffanyoutlet.com]tiffany jewelry outlet[/url][/b] ‘Vroom-Vroom’: The owner of the 1954 Ferrari Mondial Spyder revved its engine in anticipation of receiving the Tiffany trophy presented front and center on Ocean Avenue, a crowd of spectators angling for a glimpse of this raven beauty who has experienced her share of racing accolades. I envisioned an Italian craftsman tenderly looping his needle through the custom leather, as he prepared his beauty for her racing world debut.
[b]tiffany outlet online[/b] Throughout the day, automobile enthusiasts descended on Carmel-by-the-Sea to visit with the motorcars and their owners who make Concours Week so unique with its event offerings. Even the Germans and Italians respectively enjoy their own days of showmanship.
Auctions: Every voyeuristic opportunity in auction chant, from the used car salesman approach of the ‘cattle rattle’ to English ‘bid calling’ theatrics. “Come on, it’s only 0,000 more! Crumbs! You’re investing in provenance!” Each auction offered a fascinating range of unique perspective into the auction announcer’s world.
A voluptuously curved lambent black 1954 Bentley R-Type Continental Fastback contrasted with a down and dirty sleek red-hot performer, a 1990 Ferrari F40 LM, respectively taking their turn modeling at Gooding & Company’s auction, presenting themselves in stage lit glory.
As a deft cameraman treated the audience to a perpetual close-up of each body and its interior, a male prop sat stiff as a mannequin in the driver’s seat as to not take away from the steel, chrome and leather craftsmanship on display. Due to the fog drenched evening closed-top windows were steamed, a provocative preview of good times to come in that vehicle, and all–in-all I could understand dropping million if you’ve got it lying around in escrow.
I was transported into the each buyer’s mind and surmised what his motives could have been as the bidding commenced on a shadowy 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Three-Position Sedanca Coupe. Phew, that’s a mouthful. Did this car hold familial significance for this paddle holder as the model his great grandfather drove before he perished in WWII? What about the cherry 1950 Crosley Gardner Special and the 50-year-old bidder who’s finally fulfilling a midlife dream that couldn’t be realized until he footed the bill for his kids’ college tuition. Priorities. I like it. Then there’s the lifer. He’s been turning cars ever since his driver’s permit. It’s in his blood, and as this die hard marched into the auction tent to monitor the sale of his latest mistress of the ‘Vroom-Vroom Bunch,’ a sultry 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra, only to later bid on his next conquest, a 1958 Maserati 3500 GT Spider Prototype Bella from Bologna, the adrenaline surge had him procuring yet another travel companion, perhaps in the form of a 1953 Aston Martin DB2 Vantage Drophead Coupe under the guise of a gift for the Misses; an additional sparkplug to the diamonds he’ll adorn her with from one of Carmel’s local jewelers, a successful week for the gem industry as well.
I even spied a teenager bidding on a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, an elated smile as he looked up to his father for approval, paddle jerking up nervously as his elder advised him with a nod; either a glutton for Gamblers Anonymous by 20 years old, for goodness sake, or a lesson in what to look for in quality and performance. Well done, Dad.
The elevated testosterone in the room was palpable, and if a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model suddenly entered the tent in her birthday suit, she just may have been asked to step aside from distracting the high stakes German, American, British, and Italian engineered pissing contest that was taking place. Mecum Muscle Cars, Bonhams & Butterfields, RM Sports & Classics, and Russo and Steele hosted auctions as well.
Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance: A human and automotive sea of civility as the local and international set pay homage to the impressive selections gracing the eighteenth fairway at Pebble Beach. Lincolns, Aston Martins, American Classics, Mercedes, Rolls, Bentley’s, European Classics, Ferraris, Early Race Cars, Indi Roadsters, and even French Motorcycles kept the crowd enchanted for hours, quietly and respectfully intoxicated by the style and true elegance of a Sunday spent in splendor.
“Heaps of polished bumpers here.” An observant Australian in his 70s reported to his stunning, age appropriate wife, as he referred to the women in attendance that day; and she chuckled, her arm entwined in his.
The 1934 Packard 1108 Twelve Dietrich Convertible Victoria won “Best of the Best” this year, fireworks and streamers ushering the Packard to its honorable place on stage. If that car could talk, it would have emitted, “Eat my exhaust, Miss America.” For this was true pomp.
As the fog drenched sun was setting on the links, and groundskeepers hurriedly prepared for a typical Monday hosting golfers, I was grateful to have been shaken to my core by the sounds of automotive history and the irony of sleepy Carmel having been its setting. Never again will I cringe from my urban bed, wakened by the ungodly early morning throttle of a motorcycle or vintage roadster. Instead, I’ll laze back into a fog, dreaming of next year’s Concours Week, and my hopes to one day navigate PCH in a dove grey Mercedes 300 SL.

John Teeling's IWC agrees deal with Diageo to buy Great Northern Brewery in Dundalk
Updated: 10:33, Thursday, 22 August 2013
John Teeling, director of Irish Whiskey Company
Whiskey distillery to open in Dundalk
iwc Entrepreneur John Teeling's Irish Whiskey Company has reached agreement with Diageo to buy the Great Northern Brewery site in Dundalk, Co Louth.
spot fake iwc watches The two companies have reached agreement in principal on a deal that will see Diageo move production of Harp from Dundalk to its St James' Gate facility in Dublin.
replica iwc watches IWC is a new venture majority owned by John Teeling and his family. Mr Teeling was the founder of Cooley Distillery which was bought by US firm Jim Beam for €71m in 2011.
replica iwc watches IWC will focus on supplying whiskey to private label brands. It intends to produce whiskey using some of the existing equipment at the Great Northern Brewery.
iwc swiss replica In a statement Diageo said IWC "will be making a significant investment in modifying and adapting it and adding specialised whiskey distilling equipment".
IWC plans to begin distilling late next year with the first whiskey available for delivery in late 2017.
John Teeling said Irish whiskey sales are growing rapidly, a trend IWC expects to continue. "As the industry grows segments emerge. IWC will supply segments not currently served at all or at best poorly served. Dundalk will be an efficient, low cost quality distillery," he said.
The focus will be on supplying grain whiskey to pot still distilleries while grain and malt and pot still whiskeys will be supplied as Private Label products to large retailers worldwide and as Bulk Whiskey to companies wishing to develop their own brands."
Paul Armstrong, Diageo's Supply Director at its international brewing supply division said the company will be centralising brewing at St James' Gate. "We have secured the future of brewing in Ireland well into the future. This ensures that great brands like Guinness, Smithwick's and Harp will continue to be brewed in Ireland," he said.
Sycamore: The Wallabee Kingpin
» by Martin Berrios August 14, 2013, 11:15am
[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland boot sale[/url][/b] On a classic skit on Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah had "crazy visions" about customizing their Clarks Wallabee shoes . The following year Ghost hit us with a memorable cover for his debut album , Ironman, showcasing a flavorful collection of the Wallees. Since then Wu-Tang Clan fans and fashion aficionados alike have always wondered where and how they can get their Clarks done the same way.
[b]timberland discount shoes[/b]
Urban myths started to pop up of mysterious Chinese men on New York City's Canal Street area that dyed the shoes, but no luck. Now years later Sycamore has emerged as the Wallabee style kingpin.
[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland outlet[/url][/b] Specializing in dying Clarks and Timberland construction boots, Sycamore has been customizing clothing and accessories since 1995 exclusively for a handful of celebrities and recording artists. Now with an online store in place with www.sycamore-style.com , you too can finally achieve the blue and cream dream.
[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland shoes outlet[/url][/b] Sycamore recently caught up with Hip-Hop Wired to discuss his come up and how he got it dripping like it's marble cake.
[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland shoes[/url][/b] Hip-Hop Wired: How did you get started with customizing Wallabees?
Sycamore: I started customizing Wally's in '95, but [I've] only been doing it for the public the past two years or so. Up until then it was exclusive to a handful of celebs and artists.
HHW: For years people have been trying to decode the mystery about how custom Clarks are done. What drew you to the Wallabees?
Sycamore: The thing that drew me to the Wally was the “Glaciers Of Ice” skit on the Cuban Linx album. I was already wearing Wally's and dying Timbs before the album dropped, so when I heard that skit I was already dying them in my head that same summer night in ‘95. I was having visions of a baby blue and cream Wally's that night instead of blue and cream. The next week I was already dying my Wally's. I was dying and two toning the Wally in different styles before even seeing the Ironman album cover. Baby blue was the color I wanted and different colors of dye were hard to find back then.
Even if you hunted the streets of Manhattan and hit up all the shoe repair guys in New York the only colors they really carried were black or brown and if you were lucky they had blue. I was using blue on my Timbs already so I wanted baby blue. The first Wally I actually dyed was dyed with my own baby blue potion. To this day baby blue can not be purchased it is a color made by me as well as many other colors and color hues in my collection.
