Questions and answers about security system, accounting software, equity loan, debt consolidation, private jet and six sigma Question by americanka: What is the best home security system for a renter? Wireless? Do you have to have a phone line? I need a cost effective burglar alarm system. I rent so I need something I can take with me when I leave. Do I need a monitoring service? Can you have a wireless system with no phone line? Is it better to buy a DIY system online and then purchase monitoring separately? Best answer: Answer by Michael We had a wireless one when we rented. You don’t need a phone line, but you can hook one up that dials your cell phone in case your alarm is going off. I think we got ours at Radio Shack. It was pretty nice and had add-on’s that you could include in the system.

Question by oh crap.: What are my chances of getting a home equity loan? Ok, my house is valued at 160,000 I have some where between 80,000-130,000 in built up equity. I have never been late on a house payment and I am going through the bank where I have my mortgage through. The only catch is is my credit isn’t the greatest. I am getting it to help pay down my debt, and I am requesting about 20k. Thanks! Best answer: Answer by kroshkaau Hi there, yes I know it is difficult , but not impossible. Interest rates are not going up like they were in the 1980s. I had a look at a website www.mymortgagetricks.com and found some really great info on it. It certainly helped me. Question by McChesney: Are there any debt consolidation companies that do bulk settlements that clear your credit quickly? I want to work with a debt consolidation company that pays off the debt on your credit report quickly and have you pay them monthly. I do not want a consolidation company that only pays the collectors as you pay them. Best answer: Answer by ∞infiniti∞ There is no such animal. Debt consolidation companies work this way: You agree to pay them a certain amount each month. The debt consolidation company splits the amount among your creditors. The debt consolidation company receives a commission of 10 to 15% of your payment from the creditors. Your creditors are under no obligation to accept this arrangement from the debt consolidation company. Participation is voluntary. Your creditors can refuse to work with the debt consolidation company. They can opt to continue to collect from you and subsequently take you to court. Question by Christopher M: What are the most traveled private jet routes and/or cities in the US? Well, it seems like some respondents are fans of Team America: World Police. The question is asked in a business context, to know where the best place is to station multiple privately chartered jets. Thanks. Best answer: My guess would be in general aviation airports on the coasts. Teterboro (NJ) has quite a few private jet operators… Other airports that come to mind are Tamiami (FL) and Van Nuys (CA). They both are close to big cities, without having the amount of traffic of a commercial airport. Also, having these jets at strategic locations in the country would enable faster repositioning when a client needs one. You might want to consider Aspen also, since the ski season will be starting soon. Greetings! Question by ??: I am working on getting my Six Sigma Green Belt? , just wondering which directions I can take my career with this, as I am not planning on staying with my current company. I also want to eventually get my black belt. I am in the very early stages of my career (3 years out of College). And just looking for some insight and advice from seasoned professionals. In addition, if anyone has salary ranges for their suggestions I would appreciate it. Best answer: Answer by sks Hello Jared A career in quality is indeed an exciting one. You should look at it in a larger perspective. And Six Sigma could be the right recipe for the same. This is simply because the techniques & methodologies developed/consolidated here can be used beyond traditional quality control. It is all about managing variations to reduce defects in virtually any thing. It can be sales & marketing, services, BPO, software, heath care, financial sector and so on. However, success also depends on the focus. It is equally important for you to stay focussed and work relentlessly in that direction. Finally about salaries, let me share with you some extracts from the 2006 annual salary survey done by American Quality of Society (ASQ). It states, “The U.S. respondents who have participated in Six Sigma training earn $ 3,115 to $ 36,118 more than those who haven’t participated in this training. Similarly, the Canadian respondents who have participated in Six Sigma training earn $ 1,795 to $ 31,270 more than their untrained counterparts”. It also clearly mentions, “those quality professionals who have participated in Six Sigma training earn higher average salaries than those quality professionals who haven’t”. Hope this helps you.
