Management – C31 Summer Term, 2010 Assignment One The Case Allan and Bella run a large store selling art and high-end home furnishings. Their store is called The Good Life. They have no formal agreement in place but they routinely refer to one another as “partner.” When the business was first started Allan did the majority of work in getting it established while Bella contributed a greater share in the capital. Since then, however, they have both shared equally in the profits of the business and have worked similar numbers of hours each week. Bella has two young children and for some time her husband was staying home with them. Last year, however, he returned to work and so Bella needed to spend more time at home with her kids. As a result, she began working fewer hours. Allan was not able to keep up the store alone and so he and Bella agreed to hire his nephew, Verne, to work some hours in the shop. Paying Verne was a bit of a problem because the store wasn’t doing very well. At first they agreed that Verne would receive a straight 20% commission on everything he sold. In practice, however, it became difficult to separate his sales from the rest. So instead they did a rough calculation to determine the break- even point for the store and Verne now receives 20% of all profit beyond this point.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
