I chose to build a retirement plan so that when the time came, I could pass my business on confidently, and have the money needed to enjoy my retirement. BET helped me do that The retirement plan they set up for me protects not only me, but my business as well.

U.S. Bank was the lender on my auto loan. I decided to pay the loan off early to make my life a little easier. Sounds like a good idea, right? NOT!! My life did not get easier. In fact, my problems began when they sent a reposessor to my home to pick up my car. I was not home thank God. My husband had to call the police to have the man given a tresspass warrant because he would not leave our property.

I called to try to figure out what was going on to no avail. I had received a call from my bank stating that the $4K that I had paid on the auto loan (payoff) was coming out of my account twice even though I posted the payment (online) only once. My bank immediately cancelled one of the two charges. Then more than two weeks later I got a letter from US Bank with a cashier's check telling me that I had overpaid my account and enclosing a cashiers check drawn on US Bank in the amount of $4K.

The same day I got a letter from a lawyer trying to collect on my car. I called them promptly and sent them a copy of the cashiers check and the letter. I also provided US Bank's lawyer with a copy of my financial information showing that the payment had been made.

I received several letters from US Bank's lawyers advising me to cash the cashier's check and return the overpaid funds. I let them know that I would not do that because the money did not belong to me and I felt that if I negotiated the check that was sent in error, I might have consequences. I advised them that US Bank should cancel the check as it was drawn on their bank. Then I received letters telling me not to cash it but to return it and also send an additional $4K in "good funds."

Now I am stuck in a nightmare. I will be forced to file suit and pay attorneys to straighten out what is a very clear issue. I have tried to give the cashier's check back to US Bank in exchange for my car title and a letter of payoff. They insist that I have not paid the car off and that the check was sent in error and that now I owe $8k plus fees.

Save your sanity. US Bank employs people who aren't interested in helping you even when you are their customer.

I was really worried about retirement. I know it’s drawing closer and closer every day, but just the thought of leaving this business frightened me. My kids are ready and willing to take over, but I’m not sure if they can handle everything yet. That’s where BETiming comes in. Working with them, we came up with a plan for when I leave, and they’re going to help the transition along every step of the way! That way the burden isn’t solely on my kids, who may have cracked under the pressure. Thanks go out to Mike Roy, and his whole team. You’re doing a great service to business owners like me.

Marions service and products have been a great asset for my home. They showed me exactlly what I wanted for my family and followed thru with everything they said would happen. It was the easiest company ive worked with from walking thru the door to the next day install it was amazing i went from having old floors that i hated to look at to top notch floors that ill be able to enjoy for the next fifteen years thanks to all there stain resitant carpet. So if your looking for any flooring i would go to marions you will leave knowing your house will look and feel great with no hassels.

Great experience. In and out within the hour that John the manager suggested. John was courteous, professional and accommodating. Understood my sense of urgency and sensitivity to price-point. The technician that did the brake job also understood my time restraints and did a great job acknowledging this. He also was very courteous. Well done team.

I recently stopped in for a beer at Plew's Brews and was very pleased with my experience there. The owner is super friend and knowledgable about the local micro offerings. This place is such a hotspot for microbrew fanatics that their taps can rotate by the hour. While visiting St. John's, Plew's Brews will definitely be a detour for me.

I started taking Bikram Yoga in January after a very rough long term relationship ended. At first I wasnt sure whether or not I'd like it. The studio is kept at 105, I wasnt sure if I'd make it through an entire class or run out the door after 5 minutes. I made it and now that I've attended several classes I really like it. The instructors are all very nice people, the studio itself has good welcoming energy. It's challenging. Most importantly, the emphasis is on intent and making an effort in doing the postures. Cant touch your head to the floor today? Well, maybe next class. Since I've been going, I feel less anxious, less stressed, more calm, and sleep better. Hot yoga isnt for everyone but if you're at all curious, I'd encourage you to try it out.
