BTE Members DO NOT spend cash to have have some one prepare your income taxes! BTE members should use a BTE member like DownTown Office Management, 336 West First Street, Ste 105 Flint, MI.

REWARD YOUR EMPLOYEES:
If you have employees that you want to give a bonus to but your bank account says no. Consider using BTE Trade Dollars and open a prepaid sub account for them to use. It is very easy to set this account up by calling your broker or the BTE office.
The most difficult part of our job is to change the mindset of our traders to "Trade Today" before they reach for their credit card or checkbook and mindlessly squander cash in situations where they could have traded for it instead. You have your competition and we have ours. Ours is cash! We do whatever we can to defeat the competition by keeping it, (figuratively speaking) in your wallet. We would love to see all of you become traders by habit who feel deep guilt and remorse if they spend greenbacks in an unnecessary fashion. Whether it is an upcoming business expense, travel plans, or a product/service that you would love to purchase but can't quite justify and/or afford to spend your cash...call us first to see if it is something you can do on trade! That number to call is 810 744 3698.
