So here is the dilemma… You need your home power washed, gutters cleaned windows cleaned or many of the other things that Professional window/power washing companies do… You call around for estimates, you call the Professional, Insured, registered companies and the estimate, YOU think the price is way too high. Then you find a guy that works by himself or has a worker and gives you a price for half or less than the original estimate you received from the reputable, insured and professional window cleaning company. You decide to go with the small uninsured company to power wash your home to save a few dollars. This small company is bragging about his experience and shorts out one of your GFI receptacles outside. This intern blows out your breaker box, causing your refrigerator to go out, causing food spoilage which ends up costing thousands of dollars between the electrician and replacing all the food, not to mention the clean-up costs. You call the small CHEAP guy, and let him know what happened and guess what??? No insurance, if he/she even returns your call….. This comes out of your pocket!!! Sure, you can bring him to small claims court but you know the old saying … “You can’t get blood from a stone”. And one more thing, your standard homeowner’s insurance or landlord liability insurance most likely will not cover you for these events. Most of these policies exempt damage caused by the use of illegal, unlicensed and or uninsured contractors. One way to protect yourself from this is to simply ask for an insurance certificate before ANY work in started. If the contractor cannot provide you with one or makes up an excuse why he/she cannot get you one, then run… Run as fast as you can!!!
What if the contractor you hired had an employee on the job at your home or business who was injured on your property but the contractor didn’t carry worker’s compensation insurance? That employee could sue you, the homeowner. Your homeowner’s policy MIGHT help cover the cost to pay that worker’s claim after you meet your deductible, but the claim could result in an increase in your rates and make it more difficult for you to get insured in the future.
My advice to you, to save yourself the stress and risks involved with hiring CHEAP, unqualified and uninsured contractors. Hire a company who you KNOW has earned the credentials of their trade and follows good business practices. You’ll have a much better chance of seeing your job done right the first time. It might be appealing when comparing the estimates of an uninsured, unlicensed and non-bonded contractor to one who has those credentials. Insured, bonded and licensed contractors usually charge more than those who haven’t earned the credentials or paid for the insurance protection. I like to look at it this way: If a contractor doesn’t follow the law (or good business practices) in being insured, licensed, bonded and paying taxes, what else is he/she cutting corners on?????? If something goes wrong, it’s YOU who will be paying the price!!!!
Failing to hire an insured, licensed and street legal contractor could potentially cost you everything you own. If the worse happens, you could be sued by the very contractor you hired and forced into bankruptcy, and most state laws only allow you to keep a very limited amount of wealth or property once you declare bankruptcy.
All this to save a few dollars! Isn’t hiring the right contractor worth your peace of mind?

Regardless of who you voted for on November 8th, at the end of the day, one of these will probably happen:
1. Trump does a lot of GOOD and actually helps the country.
2. Trump does a TERRIBLE job and makes things worse.
3. Trump does an OK job and things pretty much stay the same.
I know I've simplified it a bit, but one thing is perfectly clear...
Life is uncertain.
- We don't know what the next 4 years will bring for this country.
- We don't know what a new president will mean for our economy.
- We don't know how our local elected officials and ballot initiatives will mean for our schools, our neighborhoods, our taxes, our future.
But this much we do know:
Everyone woke up to a new world on Wednesday, and it feels like a major shift has taken place.
This is why I strongly believe that NOW more than ever, this is the #1 most important thing that you can do for yourself & your families...
You need to take charge of your financial future, because there are no guarantees what tomorrow may bring.
There are many ways to do this. My preferred way is business ownership.
When you own a business, and create a successful plan for growing it, your financial future is secured when implementing the plan properly.
There are many resources you can access in order to start a business, or better yet, grow your existing business.
9 local business owners and I will be volunteering to teach a 10 week course starting on January 31, 2017. The course is called the Entrepreneurial Success Program, and it's hosted by SCORE and the Goshen Chamber of Commerce.
You can get all the information about it by visiting the following link:
Whether you're starting a business, or growing your business, this 10 week/20 session/60 hour course will prepare you for an uncertain future.

Now it's up to you. You owe it to yourself to create the best financial future regardless of who's in the White House.
Now is the best time to take charge of your life. Now is the time to register for this course. If you need more information about the course, go to www.OrangeNYESP.com. Classes meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm to 9pm in Goshen, NY. Tuition is only $399, but you can save over $100 when you register before January 20th.
