Here is a great question
It was closed as being off topic.
In the Past
The community has said advanced trading is on topic. I read that as being okay to do fun things with formulas and techniques.
We have also said in a few meta posts, if a person can do it, then it is personal finance
But anything bigger than a small, family run business is off-topic. Certainly one-person deals are on topic and bigger outfits are off-topic
So back to the question
- Is doing finance as a small or individual business out of scope for our personal finance site?
- Is there a cap for success or volume of activity for questions?
- Is there an implied "hobby" to the tone of our site?
- Is that second question relevant at all?
Maybe a clearer way for me to ask is, are the personal retirement & tax problems of Bill Gate and Warren Buffet the kind of problems we want on topic?
There have been good arguments for and against. Lets vote and make a decision.
