    Keeping Track of the Moving Parts in a 401k Plan

    in Business

    Today I chat with Jon Baltes, CEO of QP Steno about how his web-based platform enables HR professionals, Financial Advisors and TPA's to be more transparent and accountable for the work that is being done related to a companies qualifed plan.  Being able to keep track of the work being done by all providers is crucial is today's environment.  Removing overlap, adjusting to participant needs and managing multilple providers can be easily documented by using QP Steno.  Adding transparency and keeping track of fees and services is an ongoing battle, learn how QP Steno can make this task a on-line, documented process. 


    QPSteno aggregates the activities of any CSP to a qualified retirement plan—advisers, broker/dealers, recordkeepers, mutual fund companies, third-party administrators (TPAs).


    Control is in the hands of the plan trustee, but service provider input is essential. It is similar to a time sheet tracking of time spent on certain activities.

    It won't be cozy 9-0 Lambeau as the location for the game to go to the Super Bowl.  Is that enough to send the Packers home on the doorstep of a great season?  Can the Packers master the elements, the crowd noise, and the Seahawks?  Or, are we still a year away?  And miles away from our best chance at returning to the big game?

    The Little Podcast of Kalamazoo - Fourth Coast Cafe - Coffee shop review

    in Fun

    The green canopies of the Fourth Coast Cafe jut out from the old brick building near the corner of Vine street and Westnedge avenue in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The only twenty-four hour cafe in the city and, as far as I know, in the state is a social hub for a community of college students, alumni, free thinkers, and everyone else. It's a shining beacon of warmth and caffeine in even the darkest and coldest nights. The side door might be closed in the winter, but the front door is never locked.


    As I enter through the glass door, the scent of coffee mingles with the smell of the street and the smoke of a couple on the sidewalk talking about politics, philosophy, and the latest additions to their record collections. To the right of the stairway, which leads up to the Crow's Nest restaurant, is another glass door which swings into the cafe. My ears are treated to snippets of conversations ranging from chess moves to stories of drunken debauchery. To my left, a barista turns on an industrial sized coffee grinder as another presses levers on a well used espresso machine, eliciting a low hiss as espresso fills a tiny metal cup. The place smells of old art, new coffee, fresh tea, and human energy. This coffee shop is where people come to meet with old friends and new minds. This is where they come to plan, and at times even create, new works of poetry, drawings, novels, and everything else which breaths life into life. This place is the living breath of Kalamazoo.


    ...


    I add a little sugar to my drink and fall in love with the dull clank of the spoon against the thick walls of the tall glass cups the cafe uses. I look around and see that my usual table, in the center of the room,  is taken, so I make my way to the bar stools and take a seat there. The chairs are surprisingly comfortable for being simple wooden seats. It's clear that the cafe knows well that people come here to stay for long periods at a time.

    The Purpose Driven Business -

    in Business

    Why, what, and how we conduct business is sometimes more challenging than trying to answer if the chicken or the egg came first. A business plan is more than an item to be checked off of a to-do list. Being true to ourselves and understanding why we started our business is the foundation of a successful business.

    The purpose of our business begins with knowing our own purpose and using that cornerstone to build our mission statement and ultimately our business. Join us and our special guest Sunita Trevino, as we discuss our purpose statements and how it's used to keep us aligned in business.  Listen LIVE from your phone by calling 347-945-6693 or click the link below to tune in from your tablet or computer.
