Quoted from Mr68:
Umm, yeah, I get it. The bold type really helped...
Every third post on Pinside you brag about your status, so yeah, I get it. - I'm not impressed.
"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time"
It's just in response to your post about me pal. Why are you still whining about the "private FB owners group"? Did you create one here too.? It is what it is, no need to follow me around out of jealousy
Quoted from Mr68:
Well, which is it? Were you asked to help or did you volunteer? Your two responses conflict with one another.
Let's try and make this a bit clearer for you.
1. I was asked to help by Aaron
2. I said I would volunteer my time and my unique skills, one more time for you bud, CPA, LAWYER and FINANCIAL ADVISOR
Only some in a group like this would attack those trying to help others, whether its Jpop or this venture that I had no skin in the game.
It doesn't bother me one iota, so keep it up haters
Quoted from NoahFentz:
Just to be clear, of course money changed hands, it was business.
Ice, being a CPA, you probably know very well how costly it is to move a business (twice, in this case, to share space the second time with his commitment falling short after the fact), staff and train, insure them, pay them, etc. It was dragged out over such a long period of time (2.5 years?). How many times did he announce we're going into production? Each time we ramped up, got ready, and then just shut it down.
In the end, no pile of money, burnt bridges, awkward conversations, and, off course, this thread.
I have not heard from Kevin in months. Not since he lied to me right up until the very end, by telling me they were still being built, just not by him, and I still had the cabinet job.
How much did you get paid? What was the contract for? To deliver cabinets right?
Hiring staff, training and insuring is the business risk that you took on. The risk I and many others take every day. You simply kept cabinet deposit money and applied it to your own expenses you chose to incur on your own to get his business and accept the order.
Owners sent money in on this game and some aren't getting it back. That's a risk they took.
If i were you, I'd be pissed about the whole thing too, just like they are. You got to cover all of your losses and then some, from money you collected as a deposit from Kevin. Jpop vendors weren't so fortunate. But I do get why/how you are justifying keeping all that money and not delivering what you were paid to deliver.
And then you apparently lied about actually seeing the SkitB license to make the pin? Maybe I have that wrong.
In any event, it will all come out in the wash. GL
