Tim Cummings stole the show at CEO

Well not really. He substituted for the First Tuesday speaker and told us about a new tool to send emails that get results. Tim strives to offer value for entrepreneurs who attend the meetings and he certainly came through again. Even Peter Rosenberger, a.k.a. the  "Donald', said "it was just marvelous".

Postal Service Needs This Plan B

Headline USA This Day 05/28/2015 Expanding financial services makes sense.

I agree that perhaps instead of looking at more Draconian methods, like cutting out Saturday delivery the USPS could indeed become the poor persons bank.

Its well know that the low income members of our society are underserved by many financial institutions, but there are in fact branches of most banks in these neighbors, usually in the same block as the local branch…

Do you receive a 1099 at the end of the year?

I had a lot of people come to me this year and they are set up an contractor and receive a 1099 and have no clue what that means. So today I would like to talk about the 1099.

You do not have the pleasure of choosing if you are a contractor or an employee. If you supply your own tools and set your own hours, then you should receive a 1099 for work done. But the issue is when and how do you pay your estimated taxes on the money you make.

For the 1099 person, you are responsible for…

Aliens and Who We Are

Well I guess its time to let the cat out of the bag and get down to some serious business here:  aliens on planet earth, extra-terrestrial visitations and such.  By now many of us have seen UFOs some have been inside—in fact many more than realized—but who wants to tell their neighbors and be the subject of ridicule or quiet ostracism?

Have I seen a UFO?  Yes.  Have you seen a UFO or what could be deemed an unidentified flying or stationary sky object…

Do you have a strategie for 2014 to obtain more clients?

Let face it, we all need more clients. The question is how do we get them. For this is the method to help us get to our underlining goal of making more money. If you don't have enought customers, you don't have enough income.

According to Robert Goetz (Director of small business development) the biggest challenges to small business are finding customers and finding capital and both are critical to sustaining small-business ventures.

However, if you are not planning your…

Here is an update on the attempt to charge sales-tax for online orders.

As you may already know that most States want to collect the billions of dollars in estimated sales-tax revenue that they feel they are loosing when goods and services are sold online. Collecting these taxes has become an increasingly contentious issue as the online business grows.

Year-End Tips

If you attend conferences, training workshops, or industry events to expand your expertise, you may deduct these cost from your net income. Document all your expenses as you go, or better yet, track your expense in a spreadsheet or your accounting software.

This deduction is different from the American Opportunity Credit and other educational tax benefits. So don't miss out on your business deductions.
