Obviously, Just Doing Without is O-U-T for us…so I started digging around. There’s got to be some association or other through which I can get my family insured, right?
Turned out, I can do it through our Enterprises. Since we are a partnership, a real, official, we have documentation to prove it partnership with two or more employees, we can do group insurance.
In addition to the fifteen thousand pages of paperwork, all we need to do is provide copies of our Official Documents:
The partnership agreement. (No problem.)
The business licenses. (No problem.)
Last year’s K1 filing. (Um…not applicable…?)
Oh, right. OK, then cleared checks from the business account payable to the owners as proof that we are taking a real, regular draw from the business… (…oh…uh, well, see, the business is what you might call a fledgling, soooooo, that whole ‘draw’ thing? Not really going down right now…)
Our cash flow is actually really, really poor right now. Really poor. Poorer than poor.
Nonexistent, is probably the word I’m looking for here. We have covered November’s usual and customary needs (whew!), but December is still a bit on the “iffy” side, OK? Each new expense is causing tears of anguish to start up over here. Not to mention ranting, raving and other assorted Angry Noises.
But at the same time, in order to have our health insurance start on January 1, we need to have regular checks being drawn by the principals (that would be the husband and I) by November 15.
Unless those checks are, like, $300 apiece (the draw is supposed to prove that the business is really supporting us because it is our full time job, which makes a monthly draw of $600 for the family a little on the unrealistic side), we’re in trouble. Invoices just went out Saturday, and with a net 30 term on them…gah…
Today, my husband went to a client site for a lengthy meeting. He mentioned
I tell you what: This client just earned himself a very high spot on our gets downright eager customer service list.
I can’t wait to go to the bank tomorrow…eeeeeeee…
