I'm not getting my snack time, and I'm getting cranky.

Unlocking Contracted Recurring Revenues to use for Debt Collateral

Every month my company sells roughly $15,000 worth of monthly recurring revenue contracts with five year term lengths. The service sells for $1,000 per month so every month we sign on 15 new customers. $15,000 * 12months * 5 years = $900,000 (total contract revenue for all 15 contracts sold during the month) We've maxed out our borrowing on physical assets held by the company and I need to find a way to unlock these revenue streams to use as collateral for further growth. What's the best way to do this? I would prefer to not have to go to every customer and amend their contracts in any way. Thanks!

Don't want to send my kid sister to jail...

My sister told me about some pretty disturbing and illegal things that she is doing. She clearly needs some kind of help or intervention, but I have no idea how to go about doing that without putting her in jail. I feel totally lost and conflicted. [more inside]

Legally speaking does my safety come first or company policy?

Let’s say my company has a list of 20 rules the first being, you must notify your superior of any problems. And the second stating employees must take precaution to avoid accident or injury. The other rules are not pertinent. So I do something to avoid personal injury and then my company fires me for not first notifying a supervisor. Do I have any legal rights? Does it matter that I’ve worked for the company for years and have NEVER gotten in trouble?

Deadbeat clients, what to do?

When do I call a lawyer? I did some contract work for a small firm that has been unable to pay me. We're way past Net-30, and it's enough money that I can't deal with it in small claims court (about $15k). I'm in contact with them, and I believe that they want to pay me, but simply don't have the cash (I could be wrong). At what point do I stop waiting? Is it worth calling a lawyer if they don't have the money, or is it important to call a lawyer in case they declare bankruptcy?
