As many of us prepare for the Christmas Holiday, others are preparing for the New Year. If you are a small business owner, you should already be preparing your marketing strategies for the first year’s quarter. There are many different tactics and strategies, when it comes to marketing your business.
Currently the hottest one and most cost efficient way is through social media. Though it is not very hard once you get the hang of it, it is however, very time consuming. Many people attempt to do their social media, only to find out that they lack the time and knowledge to maintain it. If you do not have the time or the knowledge to maintain your social media, please hire someone to do it for you. There are many new businesses out there forming that are strictly social media content management. Outsourcing this task can be a smart investment that if done right, can give you a huge return on your investment.
Do your research before hiring someone or firm to maintain your social media networks. Ask to see sites that they have or currently maintain. See how many sites they will maintain for their price. Also, ask how often will they maintain, and if you receive progress reports.
Get Me Goings, is proud to say, we have one of the best social media content managers available. For a low price of $295 per month, we will maintain 3 sites of choice. Give us a call for more information. 888-768-8070, or visit us at http://www.getmegoings.com

I have come acrossed another article regarding Steve Lightfoot. Thought I would share it with you. I will continue to due updates until this man is behind bars. He needs to learn his leason and not hide somewhere so that he has the opportunity to do this again in another city.

Steve Lightfoot Update

Posted: November 19, 2010 in News About Us

Good Morning all. Thank you for everyone’s interest into this horrible situation. This is why we have the news to inform and exploit the bad nature of certain humans. As of Wednesday, Mr. Lightfoot was forced to close his restaurant. Hopefully charges will be filed against him soon to allow justice to be served.

Now we can all move on because this man will never be able to do business locally for a very long time. We owe  a great deal of gratitude to Kurtis Ming . If it wasn’t for Call Kurtis, who knows what this man would have attempted next. Thank you once again, Mr. Kurtis Ming.

Get Me Goings will have an announcement on Monday to show the public who we are as a company and what we represent in our community. Go to our Fan page on Facebook Monday to see what we feel should be the conclusion of this story. Have a great weekend!

ONE MAN EFFECTS MANY LIVES

A Local Restaurant Owner Steals From the Community and Pockets off of Tragedy

 

November, 18th 2010

Sacramento, CA- A local news story uncovers a dark and disturbing man. Steve Lightfoot, owner of Lightfoot’s California Cuisine, a former client of Get Me Goings, is being accused of holding events for charity and pocketing the money. He is also being accused of bouncing payroll checks, and paying his vendors on bank checks that are inactive. “These allocations are unbelievable. I knew I was being screwed out of money, but this story just keeps unveiling more corruption than a good drama movie”, says Troy Goings, co-owner of Get Me Goings.

Mr. Lightfoot held a benefit for Jared Ditri, a former employee, to raise money for the grieving family to help with funeral costs. One problem, the money never got to the family. “That is disgusting. Our firm put a lot of time, money and effort in making sure the Ditri family had a benefit to celebrate a life that was tragically taken away from them too soon.” Gary Goings says, co-owner of Get Me Goings. “We just found out they did not receive this money”, adds Goings.

Because of a local news reporter uncovering all of the facts, Steve Lightfoot has been forced to pay the grieving mother the money raised to the sum of $1400.00, and the final paycheck of her son which also bounced. He has also had to shut down the restaurant and more than likely will face criminal charges. “It seems as though everything is working out”, comments Troy Goings.

There is still one more factor to this story. We need to think about the employees that worked at Lightfoot’s California Cuisine. Many of them worked for months with bounced paycheck, and excuses. Now, before the holiday season, they have no jobs, and no money. “I am encouraging all of Lightfoot’s former employees to contact me”, Troy Goings says. “We will set up an appointment to see what skills you have. We will also assist you with your resume if needed. There is no charge for this. We just truly want to help you guys out of a horrible situation, adds  TroyGoings.

Troy Goings goes on to add, “If you are a business owner, contact me!  I am collecting resumes from the employees who were taken advantage by a spineless individual. These employees, are very hard and loyal workers. They took their lumps, and now are ready to prove themselves to an employer that is worthy! Please contact us at 888-768-8070.”

Now we are asking the community news resources for any help that you may give. We appreciate anything and everything. The staff literally had a 12 hour notice informing them that they had no job.

 

As many of you know, we had a client that was very dishonest and untrustworthy! There is still one more story to this. We need to think about the employees that worked at Lightfoot’s California Cuisine. Many of them worked for months with bounced paycheck, and excuses. Now, before the holiday season, they have no jobs, and no money. I am encouraging all of Lightfoot’s former employees to contact me. We will set up an appointment to see what skills you have. We will also assist you with your resume if needed. There is no charge for this. We just truly want to help you guys out of a horrible situation.

If you are a business owner, contact me!  I am collecting resumes from the employees who were taken advantage by a spineless individual. These employees, are very hard and loyal workers. They took their lumps, and now are ready to prove themselves to an employer that is worthy! Please contact us at 888-768-8070.

We thank you for any assistance you can be to us.

Have a Happy Holiday Season

The people of Get Me Goings would like to personally thank Mr. Kurtis Ming for revealing the disgusting actions of Mr. Steve Lightfoot. All parties involved are extremely thankful and appreciative to you. It isnt closure, however it is very close, with closure around the corner. Our only wish is that the proper authorities are notified, and justice is served. However it does make it easier  to pick up the pieces and continue with our lives. I know I speak for everyone effected by this – Thank You!

Sincerely,

My name is Troy Goings, one of the owners of Get Me Goings. I am writing this statement as a response to the Channel 13 News Report from their segment titled, “Call Kurtis” As many of you witnessed, you saw a human being with no spine, and he answers to the name of Steve Lightfoot.

I am making a statement to let everyone know, that I organized the Charity Event for Jared Ditri. My firm had every intention to raise money for the Ditri Family. We worked really hard and long hours to bring this event together. We did this event for the family and for Mr. Lightfoot Pro Bono. We did not feel right accepting any payment for an event that was suppose to raise money for a grieving family to help them with any funeral costs.

As you are just finding out about the disgusting act, as am I . I was shocked when I found out that all of our efforts, and resources used to benefit the victim’s family, went into the pocket of Mr. Lightfoot. I am ashamed and embarrassed that I ever conducted business with this man.

To the Ditri family: my heart goes out to each and everyone of you! I wanted to do this for you to help you through your pain, instead I feel that we only made it worst. I know I am not to blame, but I feel that I have a part in this. It was not suppose to be like this. Please know that we are constantly working around the clock to find a resolution to this and hopefully help bring closure to this tragic string of events. If you guys need anything, please feel free to give me a call. There is always good in every situation, sometimes you just have to dig really deep to find it!
Sincerely,

Steve Lightfoot

Posted: November 14, 2010 in NOTTY LIST, Press Releases

Congratulations to Mr. Steve Lightfoot. He is the first to be on our NOTTY LIST. Why is Mr. Lightfoot on this list. Because he is an individual who pays his vendors with bad checks. Mr. Lightfoot had sought help from our firm to help him bring business to his restaurant, Lightfoot’s California Cuisine. Our firm organized his GRAND OPENING and brought him the biggest night in food sales in his three months of ownership, with another huge night the next day. Mr. Lightfoot, failed to pay Get Me Goings for the services we provided him. He then ignored all requests for payments, as well ignoring all lines of communication with us.
Get Me Goings, in efforts of recooping some of the money they had lost to pay for the GRAND OPENING, created a great night of comedy. Troy Goings, co-owner of Get Me Goings, approached Mr. Lightfoot with a contract that would benefit both parties. The deal was that both parties would split all earnings that night fifty-fifty. This includes the cost of the comedians. Because, the comedians wanted to be paid before going on stage, Troy paid them in full.
The week of the show, Troy contacted Mr. Lightfoot several times to get the signed contract. On ever occassion, Mr. Lightfoot told Troy that he had not gotten a chance to review it.
On the day of the show, Troy arrived at 4pm, and asked Mr. Lightfoot, for the signed contract yet again. Mr Lightfoot responded, “Oh shut, I have nt even printed it out yet bud. I have been so busy”. He still did not provide Get Me Goings the contract yet again.
Towards the end of the night, Troy approached Mr. Lightfoot and mentioned that it is a good time to settle out. Mr. Lightfoot said that one of the servers dropped her money and report in the bar box and that we could not settle today. Troy then asked if he could at least pay for his half of the comedian fees. That was when Mr. Lightfoot told Troy that he was not going to pay for half of the comedians. Troy says, “Steve, that was in the contract!” I never signed a contract!” replied Steve. Mr. Lightfoot basically waited to see how successful the night was before he decided if he was going to invest into it or not. A very shady way to do business.
After a heated argument occurs, Mr. Lightfoot tells Troy that he will write him a check, but it is going to bounce.
The check was sent to the bank the very next morning and just as Mr. Lightfoot had said, the teller confirmed . There was no money to cover this check. So basically Mr. Lightfoot intentionally wrote Get Me Goings a  bad check. Come to find out, after talking to his other vendors, Get Me Goings is not the only victim to this bad check writting bandit. There are severaly other people waiting for their checks to be good.
So congratulations Steve Lightfoot, owner of Lightfoot’s California Cuisine in Roseville, off Riverside and I-80, you sir are the first recepient of the Get Me Goings Notty List Award!
