Governments and Corporations are Responsible for the Death of Small Business

No More Excuses: Small Business Needs Support, Not Lockdowns and Unfair Restrictions

When we complain about a problem and do nothing, we are worst than the problem itself. Canada has always been a country that defined itself on social responsibility. That is what Canadians do!”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — How many small businesses throughout Canada have struggled and closed while many large corporations have flourished and taken bonuses for themselves? Bonuses they have been able to afford because they are subsidizing employee wages and expenses with government contribution.

How many small businesses have been shut down due to health concerns without any data that suggests these same businesses are a greater risk than the large box stores? Why is small business on lockdown while other large essential corporations have been able to operate with almost no restrictions?

When will all business have equal rights?

When will a small business that can operate safely have the same privileged rights of the large corporations and be permitted to stay open?

The bottom line on this entire argument is that classifications of essential and non-essential are discriminatory to small businesses. Most small businesses have made greater efforts to protect their customers than many of the “essential” companies that have been allowed to operate freely with minimal restrictions. Big box stores that often violate capacity and social distancing limits and have only recently been investigated for violations.

The government has made health determinations with little logic, data, or explanation on why retail businesses outside of box stores are unfairly restricted to less capacity.

After two lockdowns and still no plan, there has been no discussion regarding fair treatment for small business. Everyone knows that small businesses are working from an unfair position. Many small business owners have had to take government loans to survive. Current data released by CFIB states that small business owes more than $135 billion. This amount requires repayment to the very government that is locking them down after adjustments they have made to their businesses to become compliant to guidelines that are ambiguous. The data from various departments are conflicting and inaccurate.

It is time for the government to balance the scale. Large corporations should be in partnership with small business, not sending business out of Canada. Businesses that have been unfairly treated deserve greater tax breaks and loan forgiveness based on the financial struggles that have been exacerbated by the continued mismanagement of poorly thought-out restrictions.

SmAll Business is Essential is an initiative created by Edward Henry Company and Social Distance Management. Our goal and function is to advocate on behalf of suffering small business due to the lack of support and unfair treatment from various government restrictions. The interest expressed by many small businesses throughout Canada, and even the United States for SmAll Business is Essential to help struggling small businesses has evolved to becoming more than a cause. It is now become an organization that will be on the front lines to fight for the rights of small businesses.

It is time for Canadians to be socially responsible and ensure that fairness is included in the metrics that we are using when governing through these difficult times. It is time to give small business support, and allow them the same rights that have been allotted to large corporations for over a year.

The restrictions put on businesses should reflect the health and safety threat, the business’ ability to manage their space and people, and the quantified rate/metric of spread in a specific region.

We are currently raising finances for businesses that are complying with health and safety recommendations and guidelines to stay open. We are advocating to keep business in Canada and to support small business. Edward Henry Company will be donating 50% of the proceeds from it’s recent new book release Cut The Bullsh*T to SmAll Business is Essential of Canada. Small businesses across Canada are done paying the price. Small businesses are going to unite and stand up to government and big business, because SmAll Business is Essential.

Digging Deep with Liquid Expat Mortgages

Man sat in front of oil rig

As the UK’s buy-to-let market is still very buoyant, you need to keep an eye out for ever-changing products.

Since the UK’s announcement regarding BNO Passport Holders, Hong Kongers are increasingly looking toward the UK as an investment location.

Skyscrapers of Abu Dhabi at night with Etihad Towers buildings. Abu Dhabi is the capital and the second most populous city of the United Arab Emirates.

For expats working in the UAE, buying a UK property can be a great way to save for retirement.

Over the course of four Q&A sessions we’ll look at some of the more common questions specialist expat mortgage broker Liquid Expat is asked by its customers.

The UK’s buy-to-let mortgage market is showing impressive resilience through the early part of 2021. The number of mortgage products on offer to UK expats is currently at the highest since March 2020.”

— Stuart Marshall

MANCHESTER, GREATER MANCHESTER, UK, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Amazingly, we’re already two months through 2021. And, with the vaccine rollout promising a return to some kind of normality before the year is finished, we took some time to sit down with Stuart Marshall, CEO of Liquid Expat Mortgages, to answer some questions from expats and foreign nationals about what’s happening in the UK expat mortgage and investment market.

Good Availability on Buy-to-Let Expat Mortgages.
Q: Stephanie Q. Jackson from Abu Dhabi says ‘We hear a lot of chatter about investing in UK property on the news and from some of the expat forums that are popular out here. What’s happening with the UK buy-to-let market at the moment? Is it worthwhile looking at as an investor?’

A: ‘The UK’s buy-to-let mortgage market is showing impressive resilience through the early part of 2021. The number of mortgage products on offer to UK expats and foreign nationals is currently at the highest number since March 2020. This availability remains highest for those looking to borrow with 75% LTV. In response to the growing demand for mortgages, we’re also seeing a wider availability of products available for 80% LTV mortgages – good news for expats looking to break into the lucrative buy-to-let market as they will require a substantially smaller deposit.

While the availability of buy-to-let mortgages remains high, rates are rising. This isn’t surprising – we saw rates rise through the back end of 2020 and we expected them to continue as lenders try to deter potential investors to cope with high demand. As the buy-to-let market is still very buoyant, you need to keep an eye out for ever-changing products. In other words, if you see a deal you really like, you need to act fast to lock it in as it might disappear overnight!’

New Build Homes.
Q: David Lee from Hong Kong asks ‘A lot of Hong Kongers see the UK as a safe haven for their money, especially since the UK government introduced a visa system that allows millions of people from Hong Kong to live and work in the UK with a route to British citizenship. I’m hoping to invest in a UK buy-to-let property at some point in 2021 as I want to study and work in the UK. I want to spend money wisely as my parents will be selling one their Hong Kong properties to help with my relocation costs. What should I be on the lookout for as a prospective investor?’

A: ‘Definitely keep an eye out for new build homes. Though the number of new homes being built in the UK plummeted in 2020 (a drop of 23% due to pandemic-related delays), construction is returning strongly so far in 2021. At the end of 2020, productivity on construction recovered to levels similar to the end of 2019 as workers adjusted to the new normal of COVID-safe working practices. This is good news for potential expat investors as new build homes often present attractive investment opportunities, especially off-plan. If there’s an area you’re really keen on investing in, make sure to contact us and we can help you keep abreast of the situation with regards off-plan properties and investment opportunities. Similarly, if you’re a first-time buyer, a specialist mortgage broker like Liquid will be able to assess your individual needs and objectives and will be able to help steer you in the right direction.’

The Lay of the Land.
Q: Andrew McKinnie lives and works in Qatar as a subsea marine survey specialist. Whilst it’s a rewarding job, it also involves spending long periods away from the UK. ‘I’m a UK expat and have been living and working abroad for the last 15 years. Whilst the money’s good, I am starting to think of my retirement and need to make plans now. I’m thinking of investing in a UK buy-to-let property as an investment for my retirement. What’s the general lay-of-the land for the housing market at the moment?’

A: ‘Busy! Activity at the start of 2021 has been even busier than the start of 2020, which was already strong coming off the huge majority won by the conservative government. This majority has allowed them to develop incentives to drive greater housing market growth. Rightmove are reporting that the number of buyers contacting agents between the 2nd and 12th of January 2021 was up 12% from the same point last year and agreed sales were up 9%.’

‘If you’re in no rush to invest, it’s a good time to look around and take stock of the landscape. There are new products arriving on the market all the time and specialist expat mortgage brokers are a good point of reference as they can choose from a wider panel of lenders and are not restricted by being tied to a bank. There should be some clearer indications of whether preferences formed during the pandemic are here to stay when the market calms down after the closure of the stamp duty holiday.’

The Eastern Colorado Bank – keeping that Friendly, Community Bank Feeling as they Continue to Grow

CEOCFO Magazine logo

CEOCFO Magazine interviews The Eastern Colorado Bank CEO Mr. Greg J. Weed on the Company’s mantra of Your Friendly Bank®

Your Friendly Bank®, someone said that somewhere along the way and it stuck, it is our website, our mantra and what makes us different.”

— Greg J. Weed

CHEYENNE WELLS, COLORADO, US, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent business and investor publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced an interview with Mr. Greg J. Weed, CEO of The Eastern Colorado Bank, a Cheyenne Wells, Colorado-based community bank.

(https://www.ceocfointerviews.com/theeasterncoloradobank21.html)

“Your Friendly Bank®, someone said that somewhere along the way and it stuck, it is our website, our mantra and what makes us different,” said Mr. Weed during the interview with CEOCFO’s Senior Editor Lynn Fosse. Continuing his thoughts on one of the key messages about The Eastern Colorado Bank, Mr. Weed said, “Until just recently it had been a small community bank in Cheyenne Wells, Colorado. In the last 20 years we have expanded to other places but from 1944 until 2000, we were just a single branch bank, servicing the one community and the only bank in town. Our culture has been to the service of the community because that is all we did for so many years.”

In the interview, Mr. Weed explained how they transfer service to the community as the bank has continued to expand and grow, “It has been really hard but we have been able to do it so far and it will always be a challenge going forward. We have been able to grow people within the system that are familiar with our culture and deploy those people to the branches. When we talk about expansion it is always a major factor in the decision process. We are very visible in the branches trying to make this a priority. I spend a lot of time on the road talking to our bankers, trying to make sure that they get how we treat people and how we service them a little differently than your big banks.”

Asked about who their primary customers are, Mr. Weed replied, “When you are a community bank you do a little bit of everything. Eastern Colorado is predominantly an agricultural-based economy, so small business farmers are our main customers and we do the consumer accounts, car loans, home loans and all that goes along with that. But there are fewer people in these small towns so that is not a lot of accounts. But it takes a lot of money to run a farm with equipment, cattle and real estate, it keeps us busy.”
Explaining changes to that customer focus, Mr. Weed continued, “In 2003, after a major drought, we decided we needed to diversify ourselves a little better and went into Colorado Springs, Colorado with the idea of servicing small businesses and take the Your Friendly Bank® approach into a metro area in a setting where you don’t see that very much. It has been a great experience and we have built long term relationships with people that want that small town, honest approach to banking. We say “always do what you said you would do”. Recently we have expanded into residential lending and wealth management. We try not to give a customer a reason to visit a too big to fail bank or mega credit union.”

As to what they understand that sets them apart, Mr. Weed told CEOCFO, “One thing that makes us a little different is our understanding of agriculture, the increased capital needs and slow business cycle. Financing a farm is different than any other business and understanding that is a real advantage. When you only raise one crop per year it takes a long time in a down cycle but the up cycle may last for quite a while. A couple bad quarters in our economy is a recession, in farming that is called winter and is not even one business cycle. It is much different from other businesses and you have to be there to understand it.”

Addressing how The Eastern Colorado Bank stays on the list of the top healthiest banks in the country, Mr. Weed responded, "We have good management that are not overreaching. We are trying to stick to what we know, not take big risks, not living quarter to quarter. We can make investments for the long term, those are the things that make for a solid bank, not to mention the fact that it is a family-owned bank. This is not just an investment for us, this is what we do, so we take it very seriously and we do not take large risks that would jeopardize that future.”

Choosing the Right Property Management Company for You

Mt Royal Homes Logo

Mt. Royal Homes

SAVANNAH, GA, UNITED STATES, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — So you’ve decided to get into the short-term rental game, turning your investment property into real profit. However, you don’t have the time or energy to spend on all the details of managing that property. Who does? Being 100% hand-off as a short-term rental property owner is the dream. That’s when you need to hire a property management company to be your eyes, ears, and brain. But which one is the right one for you?

Anyone can promote themselves as the “best property management company in town!” So you’ll have to sift through the madness and baseless claims to find just the right one because choosing the wrong property manager could cost you time and money, defeating the entire purpose of using one in the first place.

As a leader in the property management industry, Mt. Royal Homes has proven to be a reliable source when helping owners research and select the company they want to work with. So let’s take a look below at Mt. Royal’s unsolicited advice on choosing the right company that works for you.

Choosing a Good Property Management Company
As the property owner, you will literally be buying more time for yourself.
The property management company will oversee all cleaning and housekeeping, resulting in a consistently impeccable home/unit.
Only skilled and licensed professionals will perform maintenance and repair work.
Your guests will receive fast inquiry responses and on-call emergency contacts.
The property management company will have a wealth of knowledge from insurance claims to security protection.
Your occupancy and rates will be monitored regularly.

Choosing a Bad Property Management Company
You would have to manage cleaning, maintenance, or guest issues on your own if the property management company isn’t holding up their end of the deal.
Your occupancy and rates will suffer, affecting your bottom line.
The personal touch with guests will be lackluster and disappointing.
Guests will notice the lack of attention paid to them and write bad reviews online.
Theft and property damage could go unnoticed or unreported.

Small or Large Property Management Company?
There is no question when it comes to choosing the size of the management company you want to go with: a smaller, local company will give you the attention and listing value that you deserve (and pay for). And being local, the company will be a better, more spatially aware source for your out-of-town guests.

How to Find A Property Management Company Online
If you’re located in a fairly populated area, you will likely have many options when it comes to finding a property management company. You can simply do a Google search for “property management company (city).”

But if you have trouble finding one through a search engine, try looking to social media like Facebook Groups. Post about your property manager search in a related group, and see the responses you get. Most of the time, people who feel very passionately either way about a company will give you their honest opinions.

Always Read the Reviews
First, no matter what size, you must choose a property management company with an online presence: website and social media. Having an online presence is a good indicator of guest satisfaction (or dissatisfaction) in the form of reviews.

Many property management companies encourage owners to leave reviews, and you can certainly reach out to these owners to see if you can get any more feedback about that specific company. If they were extremely positive or negative, it’s always a good idea to try to contact a fellow owner about their experience.

At the same time, take all negative reviews with a grain of salt. Just as some guests leave unfair negative reviews on listings, the property management company could be the recipient of an unfair review from an angry host. Luckily, if the reviewer will talk to you about their bad experience, just ask them a few questions to understand the cause of the negative review and make your own judgement if it was earned by the company.

Yelp, Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List, Google My Business, and Facebook Reviews are all excellent and trustworthy platforms for real property management company reviews.

Questions To Ask Your Potential Property Manager
If you’ve finally narrowed down your search to your top one or two property managers, now all you need to do is communicate with them, ask the tough questions, and dig even more. Below is Mt. Royal Homes’ list of top five questions you need to ask and the answers you SHOULD hear:

Do you monitor guest reviews? (Answer: “Yes.”)
What is the biggest issue you have with managing all of your properties? (Answer: The only wrong answer is if they say none.)
How do you handle early check-in and late check-out requests? (Answer: “We accommodate this when possible, most of the time.”)
How do you hire cleaners? (Answer: “We send the same cleaners to the same properties whenever possible.”)
How long does the average owner stay with the company? (Answer: “A year or longer.”)

Final Thoughts
All property management companies are not created the same. Like anything worth doing, you need to spend time figuring out what is right for you as the owner. Know exactly what you need and communicate those needs and your expectations with any potential property manager. You’ll save yourself more time, money, and headaches in the long run.

If you’re still having trouble figuring out what’s what with property management companies, reach out to Mt. Royal Homes and learn how the process of listing your property can work seamlessly.

FLORIDA WETLAND MITIGATION POLICY CHANGES

Two major Florida Mitigation Policy Changes for the Wetland Mitigation Banking Industry

The Navigable Waters Protection Rule and Florida Streamlined Regulation Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA), were two major Mitigation Policy Changes for the Wetland Mitigation Banking Industry.”

— Victoria Colangelo

WINTER SPRINGS, FL, UNITED STATES, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Two major Mitigation Policy Changes occurred in 2020 for the Wetland Mitigation Banking Industry:

1) The New Navigable Waters Protection Rule. On April 21, 2020; the new rule was approved to define “WOTUS” which limits the Extent of Federal Regulation for Wetlands. Therefore, less Federal Mitigation will be Needed for Projects that have Wetland Impacts. The new policy removes isolated wetlands from jurisdiction from the CWA Section 404. We are hopeful that this new policy will provide Clarity & Less Time spent permitting. However, conservation groups are not fond of this new policy and are challenging it in many states. Fortunately, State Protection still remains for Isolated Wetlands in Florida and other states with State Agencies overseeing permitting wetland impacts.

2) Florida Streamlined Regulation: On December 17, 2020; Florida has assumed responsibility of The Clean Water Act Section 404. FDEP assumed administration of the dredge and fill permitting program under Section 404 of the federal Clean Water Act for certain wetlands and other surface waters in the state. Therefore, potential wetland impacts will need to be administered by FDEP and not ACOE under CWA Section 404. We are currently uncertain how this new policy will affect the industry, however, we are hopeful that FDEP can move the permitting process quicker than ACOE has been able to perform authorizing wetland impacts, hence making the mitigation reservation period a shorter timeframe than in the past. FDEP estimates that 85% of projects currently overlap with both State and Federal Regulation. This new policy eliminates duplicative rules on the state and federal levels. FDEP will permit projects that are considered “Assumed Waters” under Section 404, and the ACOE will continue permitting “Retained Waters” (Section 10). Currently, the Army Corps has transferred over 500 files to FDEP and there are currently uploading the applications into their databases and contacting applicants to inform them on who their DEP processor is and what the DEP application number is.

Mitigation Banks will continue to be permitted by ACOE.

FDEP recorded 2 public webinars related to State 404 at the end of 2020 and those recordings can be accessed from the 404 Assumption webpage on the FDEP website:

Bryan Cumby, CEO of Cumby Group: 3 Apartment Complexes Coming to Austin

AUSTIN, TX, USA, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cumby Group, a leading Austin builder/developer has begun embarking on a major master planned real estate project in Austin, Texas—the building of three adjacent apartment complexes. The project will take place on 8.7 acres located on Manor Road and Airport Boulevard, according to Bryan Cumby, the founder, and chief executive officer of the Cumby Group.

On this city block, the Cumby Group plans to create an estimated 700 to 800 multifamily units for lease. However and 150,000 square feet of both retail and office space.

The three apartment residences will specifically be located at the following addresses: 3303 Manor Road, 3219 Manor Road, and 3115 Manor Road. The first building, called The Emma, will feature 146 luxury residences. Meanwhile, the second location will include 205 residences for lease and the third location will be a mixed-use space, with 365 luxury residences for lease and 150,000 square feet of commercial space.

The coming soon apartment residences are will be located just minutes from iconic spots, including Tesla’s Gigafactory, South Congress, Downtown Austin, The Domain, Saltillo Plaza, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, and the University of Texas. It’s also on the edge of a master-planned redevelopment located within Austin’s Mueller District giving residents more great options for restaurants, shopping, and activities. This is one of the best up-and-coming areas of the city of Austin, according to Bryan Cumby.

Another benefit of the future apartment complexes’ location is that they are in close proximity to multiple public transit services, including light rail and bus options. In addition, the properties will offer their tenants convenient access to major transit corridors, such as State Highway 130, U.S. Route 183, and Interstate 35.

According to Bryan Cumby, the upcoming developments are proof that his company is committed to continually fulfilling its mission of “building Austin’s future by upholding its legacy.”
