  1. I know this has probably been asked before so my apologies if it has... I would like to add a more personal touch to my current newsletter with my actual signature under my name. I know one of my clients has a jpeg of his signature, how do I get mind on the computer??? I really hope this doesn't sound too stupid Thanks in advance for your help!
  2. Thank you again SOOOOO Much, I love this FORUM!!! YOU ALL ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Michelle Davis~
  3. Thank you all for your responses!!! I wanted to vent a long time ago but I hate singing my sad song, because I don't want any pitty. You all are right and I'm trying my best to hang in there because I know it will pay off or at least I hope. It seems everyday is very trying but I make it happen. I don't think I could be as strong as I have been if I didn't have my daughter to support. I appreciate this forum soooo much, thanks again for the kind words. Michelle
  4. Hello Ladies and Gents: You know I try to check in every once in a while. Of course when I need something this is the first place I turn to, but tonight I'm venting on a personal level. I hope it's not too personal I just have to let it out. Over the course of the last 4 months, I have (in my eyes) gone through hell and high water. I started my business because I wanted to be in charge. I wanted to live my life for my daughter and family, not for my job. So five months ago or so my father begin to tell me he wasn't feeling well, mine you my dad is and has been my only parent. I told him to go to the doctor but of course he was soooo stubborn as they all are. Well after waiting and going through emergency rooms he finally went to a hospital where they caught the problem. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 Liver cancer. I was DEVASTATED!!!!!!!!! I'm daddy's little girl and I didn't know how to handle it at first... Well after getting a month behind in work and things changing with my daughter, I realized I had to step up to the plate. Now I'm here still taking care of my business, my daughter, my father and my family and at 27; I'm wondering is this worth it???? Not venting for anyone to feel sorry for me but I just need to hear that if I keep pusing forward all this hard work, and pain will pay off. I look at the situations in Pakinstan and New Orleans like I'm blessed to still be here, but is this what's it's all about? Pain, hard work.... and what else? Thanks for your ears!
  5. Thank you all for your responses! I honestly do not know what to do for this client..... Act seems so difficult, no user friendly and I am not familiar with Access... Do you either of you know if I can export the currect Act database into Access? Thanks again for your help!!!
  6. Hello Ladies & Gentlemen! Hope everyone is having a great Monday Do any of you have clients with database contacts over 4000? I have a client that is currently using ACT and was going to purchase ACT web but we have not had the best service with them. Anyhow, I need to find out what other database options are out there, that are user friendly and preferable can be used on the web. ANY IDEAS, THOUGHTS? I look forward to hearing from you!

  21. Question: If your retainer client goes over their retained hours, do you charge them the regular rate for the over - hours? So if your retainer client is currently getting a 15% discount for 15 hours, but goes over, than do you charge them your flat hourly for additional hours? Thanks! Michelle D
