You don't know what you've got til you realize you never had it.

I often hear people describing "lost revenue" when they mean "revenue that we expected to earn, but didn't." To me, this is an important distinction: if you never had something, you can't lose it. Is there an alternate term to describe what I'm talking about? "Missed revenue," perhaps?

Where do I start on finding technological wizards to make my digital media concepts reality?

A friend (okay, it's me) has absolutely no understanding of coding or building software whatsoever. But I have a couple of potentially very exciting digital media business concepts which would require for a software program or web app to be built. How would I go about finding someone, or a group of people, to work with on investigating one or more of these concepts and making them reality? I'm willing to invest some money, but this needs to be at the lower end of the scale and I have no idea where to start.

Standard Chart of Accounts for Machine Shops?

Is there a “standardized” chart of accounts setup that is widely used among machine shops/small manufacturers (USA)? Working with other industries in the past (veterinary and restaurants), I have found that many choose to use a standard industry-specific chart of accounts – often established by a national industry association, etc. I have googled, etc. but have not found anything worthwhile for machine shops/small manufacturers... Any accountants or shop owners out there?
