    I raise fees when they need raising based on increased costs of business. I don't do it annually because then client's think they are going to go up regardless. I've found there's never been an...

    I don't think it's morally wrong at all. Your business will evolve as you encounter different situations which you had not considered. Most businesses will amend policy periodically based on...

    You can claim for maintenance of what you already have but you cannot claim for changes or upgrades. The reason is you own the property so if you upgrade floors from carpet to hardward, your asset...

    For similar reasons, I do not give credit for missed days regardless of the reason. The fees are for each day a child is registered for care. They are paying to have that space on those days...

    I can see you do that but many of your posts, intentional or not are patronizing for those who do things differently to you. While you make the noises that you can see different ways are effective,...

    Wow, that's interesting. I believe only Alberta currently doesn't count their own household children ever. Every other province has to count their own either all the time or if they are physically on...

    Day care is ALWAYS in demand in major cities. The issue isn't the demand but the restrictions. In Ontario (and some other provinces) a day home cannot have more than 2 infants. This means that all...
