    There’s other choices, too. I was wondering about this topic so I looked it up. There’s also RocketHub, FundRazr, Pozible, Fundable and others.

    We use Timesheets.com actually – they work great for this kind of thing…. If you’re asking here, you might as well give them a try! They have a free trial.

    This really depends! If you need knowledge, you can’t hire the newly educated worker no matter what it costs. You’ll have to pay for the knowledge. There’s any number of reasons a manager might decide on one vs the other, in my opinion, but usually knowledge is the first consideration. If someone doesn’t know how to do the job, then nothing else is worth discussing.

    A lot of times, new college grads are being groomed to grow into jobs in the future. Businesses, especially the larger ones, need to be conscious of hiring for the next generation. They want people who will grow into complex jobs that are hard to hire for. Or they just want someone less expensive because the job doesn’t take as much specialized knowledge.

    I think a better question might be which medium is right for your specific product. Reaching people is obviously desirable but if you’re reaching the wrong people, or if their engagement rate is lower, then the question is moot. On the other hand, if your goal is exposure and you don’t care to who (i.e. everyone is your target audience) then probably radio is better than newspaper.

    Wave is really good. They are completely free too, making them infinitely cheaper than Xero or Amazon. There’s also a number of smaller accounting software packages like Zipbooks.com or Kashoo.com that you can try. Each one is different in their own way, but they all take some learning. You’ll have to play with each to decide which you like best. I’d start with free – which is WaveApps.com

    I think it’s fine. When it comes to supporting local businesses, there’s still plenty to choose from. Local pharmacies, restaurants, auto parts stores, even grocery stores and growers. But when it comes to you bank, having a low cost national or even international bank is never a bad idea. You need to be able to move money around. In other words, it’s never a bad idea to go with the larger companies when it’s to your benefit in such a pronounced way.

    That being said, I’ve heard stories of small businesses getting pretty decent perks from the smaller banks and credit unions if they keep a decent balance or move enough money. I’m with a big bank myself, but I know of people who have had decent perks at the smaller banks.
