    Did not finish project and stopped communicating. Was very quick to request payment of milestones, but did not meet our deadline and stopped responding 5 days ago. Disappointed and will not use again!<br/>

    LUretsky's reply:

    I tried contacting this employer for 5 days with no response. He also changed the the price on the project. He hired me for $20.00 per hour, and when I requested a milestone for the hours I had completed, he said he only budgeted $200.00 for project. Made me change my milestone request. I had gone as far as possible, with the work and needed some answers, he was not available, so I just waited.When he finally contacted me i was busy and not able to respond. So he assumed I was not going to finish.

    Hello,I am starting a new business and I would like help with the Accounting. I have had a self-employment type business for a long time and have managed it ok.However, I am starting a new &quot;real&quot; business (inventory, cogs, employees, sales tax etc.) and I would like some help doing the bookkeeping/accounting. I am planning at present to use Xero online accounting system. I will probably do a lot of the actual work myself (unless I get busy) but I need someone who can simply help and answer questions for me when I need that. Experience in Xero is a plus. I would expect the person to bill a reasonable hourly rate and be available for a full hour for every hour billed. (In other words, none of this minimum billing of 15 minutes stuff whereby you answer a question in 2 minutes and I lose a 15 minute increment against a one hour payment.) Purchasing 1 hour gets me 1 hour of time usable in 1 minute increments. I also plan to run my own payroll and would like assistance with that as needed (I do have some experience with it though.)In case it matters, I am a US based LLC operating for tax purposes as an S-CORP.
