Todd,Congrats! The world is a better place because of you. You
have brought a ton of value to Utah. It has been fun watching the company grow
all these years. What an amazing journey!You deserve it.Hopefully all of the people who are having a big payday will stay grounded.
We have enough lives wrecked by too much money. Keep up the good
Too bad Todd didn't build that himself! Don't congratulate Todd, call
the President and tell him what a great job he did! I remember the stress
filled days and nights when they were selling pest control. I remember the
first summer in the bay area, and how Todd borrowed the money to get it going.
By the way, the govt. didn't loan him anything. The govt. wasn't
there figuring out a way to make payroll, pay the light bill, and put food on
the table for Todd and his employees! There have been a lot of smart people
involved in this company from day 1. I bet Todd would even say people much
smarter than him. They together built this business! All of the employees have
been fairly compensated. The salesman have been compensated very well. If
someone didn't make enough money selling for Vivint, they should think
about a new career that doesn't involve sales. The govt. would have
screwed it up making everyone "equal" sales or no sales. How successful
would this company have been if that would have happened? Cograts to
Obama!(Sorry Todd, you guys didn't build that!)
staypuffinpc-They were not taken over by corporate raiders. They were
looking to sell.
So, since I've had my alarm system, it's had 3 names. Guess I
will get a nifty new sign for the front yard. Just hope my payment
doesn't go up...
milhouse says:"Except that Vivint's employees are underpaid
part-timers, whose earnings are not sufficient to sustain an economy, . .
."I have no idea how much Vivint's employees are paid. But
every one of them is welcome to go to work some other place for higher wages any
time they want to, provided they actually have job skills that warrant higher
wages. However, I suspect most everyone that works there do so because it is the
best opportunity for which they are currently qualified.Perhaps
milhouse thinks people should be paid more than they are worth? Perhaps milhouse
thinks they should be paid based on their needs and not based on the value they
provide as employees? It sounds like milhouse works for the federal government,
an organization that has never been run efficiently and has never had to
actually generate a profit or even break even. Perhaps milhouse
needs to start his own business and use the pay model he is professing that
Vivent should use. I suspect he would not want to be so generous (or foolish)
with his own money as he wants to be with Vivent's.
Peterson knew well in advance what enforced Obamacare was going to cost his
company and so he sold out.People, you do understand what Obamacare
will do to small business? Right? Because you better understand before your
boss lays you off because he can't pay $800 to ensure your family.Liberals would crack me up, if they didn't make me cry.
sammygExcept that Vivint's employees are underpaid part-timers,
whose earnings are not sufficient to sustain an economy, and their customers are
all on welfare. Take away the welfare, and you take away Vivint's
profits.Indeed, using Vivint as an example of conservative economic
philosophy makes perfect sense.
Wow, Pedersen must be livid that his company will be taken over by corporate
A TRUE patriot would pay a good portion of his earnings from this sale to Uncle
Sam . . . so that Uncle Sam can send money to the Middle East and North Africa
to fund the Arab Spring and promote good will among all of that region's
peace loving brothers and sisters.
How much will I pay now
Great success story
So if Obama had his way he would like to take a lion's share of Mr.
Pedersen's money.I think smart and rich guys like Mr. Pedersen
need to keep a lion's share of their money and create more companies that
employ more people, so more people can work and can pay their fair share of the
taxes.I love capitalism.Congrats to Vivint and their
