Business: A look back

Greer is growing and business has never been more alive in the community. Throughout 2014, we’ve had a chance to see new start-ups, say goodbye to familiar faces and witness big brands come to town. The following is a look back at the year that was in the business community.

Helping a friend

Q: I gave my wife $350 for Christmas shopping at Wal-Mart. While she was there with our 6-year-old daughter, she cashed her bonus check to put with the Christmas money. When she tried to check out, the money was gone. My wife even asked our daughter if she took the money out of mommy’s purse, and she said no.

Q: My brother and I recently received an inheritance after our mom died. He’s never been very good with money, so I was proud of him when he used his portion to pay off his debts. But then he went out and financed a van that I know he still can’t afford.

Wrong half of the month

Q: My husband and I are following your plan, and we’re trying to reconcile our on-paper budget with what’s going on in our bank account. Most of our bills are due the first half of the month, but we receive most of our income during the second half of the month. Can you help us figure out what to do?
