By  Michael Phillips |   | Posted in " Attorney, Business Law, Business Meetings, Charlotte, Companies, crime, Internal Revenue Service, IRS "

Well, first of all that all depends on if you have been able to actually find a work from home based type job. There are plenty of opportunities on the internet and many of them are promising things that they are certainly unable to provide.

I came across this young man’s story www.instantpaydaynetwork.com/phillipsmc1 on the……

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt. Abraham Lincoln Those words spoken by President Abraham Lincoln are as true today as they were when he spoke them.

Its 3:30 in the afternoon, and I have just finished a consultation with You, potential client about a legal matter. After spending 45 minutes with you, the potential client, discussing the merits of your case, not yet down to the nuts and bolts, but definitely a very detailed discussion about the “ins and outs”, you lean back and cup your chin with your hand, although you have no inkling of a beard and not even a 5 o’clock shadow to rub, you gesture with your hand as if you do.
