i just totally need to vent.

my brother has a hedgefund, and a few years ago he totally screwed himself and lost lots of money. and then my sister(who had been working at Dean Witter as a stockbroker) was like "i'll help you out". so they were both struggling and she was like "we're family, i'll help you". and he was like "when i get money in the fund, we'll get millions and we'll have soo much money" and my sister was like "yeah".


its totally different now. 1 year ago my brother hired his best-friends sister(same age as my sister 30yrs old) and she was given a salary of $3,000/month for doing nothing. while me and casey were working more hours and still getting $8/hr. so then like 6 months ago we started getting a bunch of clients and more money started getting into the hedgefund. rachel(the 30 yr old with the salary) started getting responsibilities. and she's stupid. so she would mess up stuff. my sister started making $10,000/month and we had a bunch of bills and stuff. and my sister would have to fix all of rachels mistakes.

then cynthia asked for a raise and for the past two months she's been making $16,000/month. and JUST now we started getting a savings account. cynthia supports me, my mom, and the dogs(which are like children). my brother--he makes like $100,000/month and he's only at work like 30% of the time. cynthia is ALWAYS here. we havent had a vacation in YEARS. and my brother gets at least 3 a year.

so...since 6 months ago he's been ignoring cynthia...stopped talking about her getting more money and he has been basically acting like an a$$h0le.

OH, and whenever rachel messes up---my brother blames cynthia...eventhough it wasnt her fault.


FOR EXAMPLE: when we send clients or prospective clients a book about the hedgefund company....we give them our numbers. like how well we're doing. which casey(my boyfriend...he works here too) updates EVERY month. well, rachel didnt ask casey for the updated list, and was sending out the old one...the one from like 4 months ago! who does my brother blame--casey. when casey didnt know that rachel was sending out books.

another example---rachel is in charge of finding out new clients and the amount and she tells cynthia and cynthia makes a statement/welcome letter. WELL, "mr. jones" calls and says he hasnt recieved a statement. cynthia was like "hes not on my list that rachel gave me" but my bro still blames cynthia. and then cynthia goes to rachel and is like "when did mr. jones deposit his money' and rachel was like "justin didnt give me an updated list"(btw, rachel can look this up on the computer.....but she doenst like doing work). so then after like 10 minutes, rachel was like "oh, i had an email from justin from OCTOBER 4TH saying that mr. jones deposited his money".


YET---MY BRO DOESNT BLAME RACHEL.

it's totally stupid. now cynthia thinks she's going to get fired. because eventhough she does ALL THE WORK in the office...my bro doesnt care. so when cynthia quits, me and casey are going to quit too. i made the templates for EVERYTHING that this company uses.

i told cynthia to tell me when she's going to quit and i'm just going to clear out my whole computer.




so this guy my brother hired, so far he's brought in $500,000 in the past 3 months and this guy got $25,000. and he's going to london this january to try to get a few million.


and i know that some of you on here are good with marketing and advertising. so if you could private message me and we can talk more about it. i want all the help we can get. and then we could set up how to pay you or something.


i gotta go. thanks for listening!

What's a hedgefund?
I'm sorry you have a brother like that. I hate how some of my family is like that. I have this cousin who has 2 kids that are around my age. Well, she thinks I'm such a bad influence on them. I don't even have a life but when they hang with me she gets upset with them saying they'll become bad and what not. *NEWS FLASH* They're freaking 18-19, out of the house and in college. Do I need to say more? And yet, she doesn't mind that when they need me, I'll drive all they way to where they are and help them out and let them borrow my car cause their's is wreck or whatever. STUPID.

I wish I could help ya. I have like A.D.D. or something and so I try so hard to keep things organized and do things as effecient as possible. :/ I use to work in an office. I hate to work WITH an idiot! I always hated getting paid the same as someone else and I do more work then them.<--pet peeve
Anyway, does your brother like Rachel or something? Why is he so blind? Your sister gave him money to get his broke butt outta financial issues.

I don't know about you, but the sad thing about my family is that we all, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc, use to get along sooooooo well! We use to have so much fun together and were so close. But when everyone gradually started making money, everything changee. Somebody thinks there better than somebody! SUCKS

a hedgefund is sorta like a mutual fund. basically he gets everyones money...puts it all into one account and trades it. they can do a little more than a mutualfund. i dont know what....but thats what they tell me. lol.


i have no idea why he likes rachel. and she was supposed to work today....and she didnt come in. OH, and my brother was like "write down all the days that everyone takes off" because everyone is allowed 3 sick days and 2 week paid vacation-----rachel has already missed 8 days since August. and she only works from 8:30am-2pm.

you know what happens if she misses more than the "3 sick and 2 week vacation"----NOTHING!!


and a couple of weeks ago, when my brother was in hawaii, she came to work late because she wanted to help her son out at school---how did my brother find out---because my sister told him!

she gets paid $150/day basically....and before we had those "paid days off"---did she take out $150/day she missed???? NO.

and my brother did crap about it! ugh!!



how many days have i taken off? 0. even when i feel sick because this job is soo easy. how many days did cynthia take off? 1--to go to the dentist. and while she was at the dentist: get this:

rachel took an hour and a half 'break'(she didnt tell anyone how long she was going to be gone) to take her husband to the mall!!

so my brother was freaking out about an account(rachels fault) and who does he call??? CYNTHIA. WHILE SHE'S GETTING CROWNS DONE! she was in the dentist chair, had the dentist stop drilling so that she could answer his question.


who did he get pissed off with?? CYNTHIA---for not being at work. evnethough she had told him 4 WEEKS in advance that she was going to be gone for 2 hours to the dentist.

He's so unreasonable! I would just quit right on the spot just to show him how important you are. You know he calls Cynthia because he knows Rachel won't know jack and CAN'T help at all. And since he's angry already, he'll take it out on her. ARGH. I got so much to say, but I'm probably going to piss you off more BLAH.

Just have a great Thanksgiving with your babies and your sister and your OTHER family LOL.

yeah, we've all decided that when cynthia quits then casey and i will quit. it sorta sucks because its really really bothering cynthia. she is getting lasik(eye surgery so then she doesnt need glasses anymore) on december 6th...so we're thinking that the week after we'll have a "vacation". we dont have any money to stay in a hotel for a week.....so we're thinking that every day we'll do a "field trip". like we can rent a boat for $40/hr and just go around a pier in circles. lol. gruffi did it when he was five months old...he loved it.

and cynthia wants to go to disneyland. so i'll take her there one of the days. i'm trying to save as much money possible now. im going to give cynthia my paychecks so then we can pay off the credit cards.


cynthias planning on starting to get clients for my brothers firm, so then she can make more money....and then she's going to leave my brother and be like "i want all the clients i brought too". lol.

i totally hate it when you cant trust family

That just totally sucks! I hate it when the people always let the slackers get away with whatever but the real hardworkers always get the shaft.. don't even get me started on that. But it must be a million times worse to have that person be family. I really feel for you and hope the situation gets better!

Certainly sounds like a mess.
I wish you lots of luck.
Families can really suck sometimes. But they will always be there for you.

A partnership with strangers a lot of times gets nasty, it's even worse when it is with family. There is a saying : if you want to keep a good relationship with your family and friends, never do business together, never buy from them, never sell to them, never loan money from or to them.

Best of luck.

geez, it sucks. cynthia started crying(mostly because she felt betrayed and pissed) because my bro went into her office today(yes...we're working today. but guess who's not?? rachel and robin) and started telling cynthia that she should take a different approach to things and not get so emotional. UGH!! he was like "you dont like rachel personally, you should take it out professionally" and cynthia was like "i dont like her professionally".


oh, and robin sounds like she's 10 years old (and she's 20). i swear! and he basically told us that me and casey dont sound good over the phone and thats why he needed to hire robin. why'd he have to insult us??

oh, and robin told my bro that she got an IM (everyone has msn messenger) and it was from me or cynthia saying that she gets too much money for what she does. thats a TOTAL lie!! i honestly think that rachel and her are setting us up or something, you know?

so cynthia started crying and was like "im your flesh and blood, why are you supporting this whore (thats what she calls rachel because she ALWAYS wears slutty clothes)" and he was like "im not supporting anyone" and its like he let rachel go home a few times because "she felt as though everyone hates her"
i dont get that.


so cynthia was like 'you're making a big mistake". OH, and he was like 'if rachel messes up, you have to take care of it". and cynthia was like "im always fixing her sh*t". and he was like "thats how it works in business".
last time i checked---if someone repeatedly messes up...they get fired.

so cynthia basically told him that she wants his help and she'll leave the company. and he was like "fine".



OH!!!!!!! AND HE MADE A PERSONAL ATTACK!!

i've told you all before--i dont have any friends. i stopped talking to everyone in highschool because they all started drinking and taking drugs(im not like that).

and cynthia doesnt have any friends because she thinks they're "too much work" and she prefers to be with the family.


SOOO, my brother was like "cynthia, look at you. you dont even talk to aunt mary or claudia(other drama---mary and claudia our step-cousin repeatedly insulted my mom TO HER FACE saying that they've given her soo much money that they'd be millionaires by now and mary told my sister to her face that she's nothing and that she's a bitch...stupid stuff. so cynthia stopped talkign to them) you dont have any friends, cathy doesnt have any friends. that should say something about how you are professionally"
i didnt get that


WELL, when we stopped talking to my aunt....my brother stopped talking to her(i dont know why). so then cynthia and i were like "why dont you talk to mary anymore" and he was like "i still send her christmas cards' and we were like "why dont you invite her to your daughters birthday parties"


HE HAD NO ANSWER. he's an idiot. i gotta go now. thanks for listening!

Ugh, it sounds like your brother needs to shape up and get into the BUSINESS frame of mind. He seems too immature to handle it in a business-like manner. He let that girl go home several times because she felt like she wasn't liked?!?! Woah. That's no way to conduct a succesful functional business.
Working with family can be tough. My husband and i started a business partnership in web design and marketing when were just boyfriend and girlfriend. He has the business and marketing mind and i have the design skills, so it's a win-win situation. We really do work well together and try to sepaprate business and home as much as possible. But sometimes it is hard to leave a little tiff at home and not have it leak into our office environment.
We do best when i have my project and he has his and we don't really talk most of the day. (haha) But it's times when we have to do projects together and he's over my shoulder and i'm over his, that we can get a little snippy with one another. When it's only for a day or two, we're fine.
BUT, we've been working on a project like this now for over 2 weeks and it's been a little crazy. heh. Luckily we have our own office and no employees. We've been pretty snippy these past 2 weeks, but we're fine and happy when we get home!

Working with family can be tough, but if all parties know how to handle themselves, (ie. your brother.) then it can work out great!

i TOTALLY agree with you baby coconut. like my bro was telling me and cynthia that we cant say ANYTHING negative about anyone at the office ANYMORE(eventhough cynthia has her own office......it seems like rachel is listening in on our conversations).

WHEN HE TOLD ROBIN TO NEVER LISTEN TO RACHEL!! it doesnt make sense at all.


and he's like 32 yrs old and he's SUPPOSED to be the boss, and he'll talk to robin about strip clubs and drinking!!

I'D feel uncomfortable if my boss was trying to act like a "friend" and talk about disgusting stuff like that, you know? like thats totally not business talk.
and he doesnt even talk like that to me and cynthia because he knows that we think its innappropriate---and we're his sisters! he totally disgusts me!

sooo, cynthia's quitting as i type. she's in my brothers office telling him that rachel is really ****ed up and that he's letting everything like is messed up. (sorry for the cussing).


so guess what?? rachel wrote a letter to my bro (and of course casey put the envelope to the light and read it) and it said that she is going to quit unless he gives her a raise and then she'll take things "month by month". thats she's going to give him a 30 day trial or something gay or stupid like that.

and then cynthia tells our bro "i need the numbers from rachel" and then 2 seconds later he calls casey to his office saying "do you have a problem doing statments" and casey was like "no". so then casey asks rachel "i need the numbers" and then she gave him a shocked look like she's surprised that casey is telling her to do her job. and then she says "i'll have justin CC (email) everything to you". which is her NOT doing her job. shes supposed to get justins emails and then make like a spreadsheet and make everything easy to read and have everyones account on there. has she ever done that?!? no.


im nervous. she's going to tell my bro that she wants $300,000 right now and that she's going to leave the company. and then with that money she's going to trade it. and i dont doubt her abilities.....its just that she's going to use all the money that we have...and trade it. that means she needs to trade 5,000 shares per DAY so that we can pay our bills and she can give casey $1,000/month. our bills, including caseys pay, will be $5,000. she has to pay taxes and all that stuff.



and she's talking to him right now, and all i hear him say is "here's the thing" and then he tells her bullshit about how rachel is needed. i sooo hope cynthia isn't getting emotional. its like totally hurting her how he is basically stabbing her in the back with all this crap. i better get going.

thanks for listening.

Also one other thing cathy
when you are managing a fund there is a fee and the mangement gets a percentage of that fee from that fee there are operating costs and so forth
so on...If someone brought in 500K your hedge fund gets a fee for that not the individual , If your fund is making money each year well than you cant say
you get 5% the first year and 2% after its all according to how the fund does
first few years i worked here before 9/11 our funds were giving returns of 8 to 9%
last few years we have been down , this year is a good year but thats the risk our investors take they are willing to weather the storm for high returns
plus you have to have a real sharp fund manager who knows how to trade

ok, well. she went in there and started her whole talk about how she's feeling unwanted and that rachel isnt doing her job at all. and then my bro was like "im sorry you feel that way, i'll talk to her. i just have a problem that you're anti-social" and then cynthia was saying that he was too and that he better fix things and he agreed. so she didnt quit. like during the talk she realized that it would be better if she stayed at least 6 months longer. and i sorta didnt feel comfortable with her quitting today either. and then after talking for 20 min with him, he called rachel in his office. i totally hope things change.


about the hedgefund:

maxismom--- we only have a few million under management....and he handles EVERYTHING. he does all the trading for it. and the fund is actually pretty good. like compared to the s&p...we're always higher. in 2003 the fund was up around 16%. i dont know what it is year to date.

and the 5% goes to relationship managers. their commission(i guess thats the word) is 5% up front and 2% every year after. so the INVESTOR doesnt get 5% and 2%....the investor gets what the fund is getting.

to start up the company with our accountant is 40,000 dollars. and then cynthia would invest her own 200,000 dollars and then trade that herself.


i hope that all makes sense. lol.

I know how Cynthia feels. I'm one of those who when gets a phone call from a telemarketer and they ask me if they can speak to an adult. Like SHUT UP. LOL. I'm 24 now and I am so fed up with how people don't take me seriously that I have to be such a B**** sometimes, but it's all good because that's how I vent. HEEHEE.

You should remind Cynthia how much she's needed so she'd have more confidence. Tell her never to talk to anyone when she's angry and to wait til she's calm down and less emotional to talk. Even when someone makes her very upset or make her want to cry...just walk away.

Also, it seems like Cynthia's position in this company is equal to your brother even though he's the owner. If that girl gets a raise(or even if she doesn't), Cynthia needs to TELL her to start doing her job. Make her earn her money! Nag her if you will. And if she has an issue, say,"I wouldn't be talking to you if you DID YOUR JOB!" Heck, be nice about it when you ask her to do her job and if she acts stupid, show her how to do things.

I wish I were there to help! I sure do need some money! LOL. Good look, Cathy. Tell your sister I really feel for her and to hold her ground.
