END OF INSTRUCTIONS
Force and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel three years ago. While serving on active duty, she earned two graduate degrees (one was an MBA from UMUC).
Aahlaadita currently earns a little over $4,000 USD per month in her military retirement pay. She wanted to “follow her passion” when she left active duty service. Yet, she is a cautious person and risk adverse. So, after she retired she took a full time job with a US federal government agency in the Dallas, Texas region at the GS-14 level (this is the General Schedule pay grade that the US federal government uses for the majority of their employees). Aahlaadita currently earns $105,500 USD annually in this job. Thus, her monthly gross income (full time job and retirement pay) is right around $13,000 per month.
She has always been very prudent with her money and saved as much as she could each month.
In fact, in addition to her $13,000 monthly income, Aahlaadita has $1,200,000.00 USD saved and invested in a diverse portfolio of stocks and bonds. She has also been a long term real estate investor and currently has 12 rental properties (single family homes and duplexes) around the US that are fully paid for and in total generate $12,000 per month in positive cash flow. Her retirement pay, full time job income, and rental property income total $25,000 a month.
She has no debt (the house she lives in she paid cash for when she purchased it). She says, “I am ‘set for life’ financially at this point so why not have a little fun and potentially ‘get rich’ going into business?”
Aahlaadita has a great standard of living and enjoys vacations, personal services (spa treatments, maids, dog sitters, etc.) and has the freedom to do what she wants, when she wants. She does have two dogs, a turtle and a fish tank full of exotic fish that she dotes on.
Aahlaadita says that once she gets her assets over ten million USD she will finally feel financially secure (including her properties her current total assets are over four million USD). She has noticed how many of her real estate investor friends have private planes and she does not have one. Her business role model, Oprah Winfrey, said as the Duke University commencement speaker in 2009, “it is really fantastic to have your own jet, and anybody who says it isn’t is lying to you. That jet thing is really good.” (Leonard, 2009)
At 46 years old, she is not a teenager but she is also not quite ready for the retirement home and playing golf all day. She still has dreams.
####################################################################
YOUR ROLE:
Aahlaadita is the cousin of your friend from undergraduate school. Your friend asks you to help Aahlaadita. As you are an expert about business (due to being in the DMBA degree program), you agree to help.
Aahlaadita sets up a Skype session with you so that you are able to see her while you speak to each other. Aahlaadita tells you that she plans to name her business, “FitFido!”
Aahlaadita has a few business concerns. She tells you that she knows that she has several multimillion dollar ideas and she must protect them from “thieves and haters.”
Aahlaadita tells you that she does not need any “expensive lawyer” as she has multiple degrees and is a retired Air Force officer. She has already found several websites she is going to use such as LegalZoom, Rocket Lawyer, Nolo and MyCorporation.com for starting her business. She states that she also knows that it is not easy for a startup business to survive.
(Jorden, 2014)
So, you locate the Custom Text from DMBA 610 and tell her that the two of you should go through the comparison chart on pp. 766 and come up with your “best” and “second best” forms from a business perspective (before her going to one of the online websites to file forms to start the business).
Note the following issues as you evaluate the comparison chart in your custom text:
1. Aahlaadita’s business is “not fully fleshed out” at this time. She envisions “FitFido!” as an exercise and fitness “immersion experience” for “pet babies.” She explains to you that the business is still in “the creative, iterative process” but will be “a multi-platform integrative firm utilizing technology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and ‘groundbreaking’ animal phobia research in pursuit of the optimal state of mammalian nutrition.” She tells you that the majority of the business investors will be sourced via crowdfunding (specifically, she will use the sites https://www.kickstarter.com/, https://www.indiegogo.com/ and https://www.fundable.com/). She says that she read that even bizarre business ideas get crowdfunding and that she is confident she will raise “any amount of money that she wants” (https://www.americanexpress.com/us/small-business/openforum/articles/8-really-bizarre-business-ideas-that-got-crowdfunding/).
2. The only business investor that will not sourced via crowdfunding is an old childhood friend from Lincoln City, Oregon, Adele LaToya Jolie-Pitt. Ms. Jolie-Pitt recently contacted Aahlaadita on Facebook and they caught up with a long phone call. Adele was super excited about an opportunity to invest in an amazing business. Adele LaToya Jolie-Pitt and is 42 years old. She holds a PhD in Management from MIT Sloan School of Management but is currently unemployed.
Adele LaToya Jolie-Pitt will invest only $10 at this time and demands limited liability. She had a Ch. 7 bankruptcy that she filed 24 months ago so she has no personal credit and no access to, or ability to obtain, credit for the new business. She also has no income, no pension, no savings, and has a net worth of approximately negative (-)$220,000 USD due to outstanding student loans from her PhD. Adele
LaToya does not work and said that she will be “dedicated full time to making money” for the new business. She has stated that she will need to draw a salary from the new business immediately (she has suggested $8,000 USD per month).
3. Aahlaadita had not checked into the business name “FitFido!” (other than to share that it came to her in a dream) but you did a quick Google search and located a business in the USA in Massachusetts named “The Fit Fido” (http://www.thefitfido.com) and another business in Australia, named “Fit Fido” (http://www.fitfido.com.au/).
4. Aahlaadita is very cautious and she wants to ensure she has no liability for the business (or limited liability in the alternative). She says that she was childhood best friends with Adele LaToya and she feels that she “owes” her to go into business together. Yet, Aahlaadita tells you that she “does not trust” Adele LaToya Jolie-Pitt or anyone else with “her” money. She does not want Adele LaToya or anyone else to be able to sign any business checks, use any business credit cards, access any business funds or make any business financial decisions. She tells you that she wants a maximum cap on how much money she could personally lose if the new business fails (of no more than $120,000 or approximately 10% of her liquid assets at the present time). Aahlaadita will be working for the business when she can, but this is a “side business” for her as she has her full time federal government job in the Dallas, Texas area.
5. Aahlaadita is a U.S. citizen. Adele LaToya Jolie-Pitt is a US permanent resident (green card holder). You do not yet know the citizenship status of Aahlaadita’s crowdfunding investors.
QUESTIONS TO ANSWER (each one is labeled on your Answer Sheet as 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D)
Prepare your response for Aahlaadita. Support each item with principles and theories from the readings: A) What are the primary considerations for the entrepreneur in choice of a legal form? (100 word limit)
B) What are the advantages and disadvantages of each form in terms of the specific constraints and objectives?
C) Which one form would you choose and why? Which form would be your “second-best” recommendation and why?
D) Why is it valuable to have a legally astute management team making the decision about the choice of business entity, rather than leaving these decisions to the lawyers?
(Maximum Limit: 1500 words total for all parts).
