Are you taking advantage?

Are you taking advantage?

if your anything like me I love to save a few dollars but you’re doing yourself a disservice if you’re not taking advantage of the tax deductions allowed for services we are already paying.

What’s up bloggers and bloggetts, it’s your girl you know who with another you know what for your reading pleasure.

I’m sure your asking yourself what I mean when I asked

Are you taking advantage?

I wrote today’s post because it is very near and dear to me. Let me give you a little background history before we jump into today’s topic.

As a young child I was told to go to school and get a good education, go to college and get a good job and oh yeah stay there until your 65 and then retire. SOUNDS GOOD RIGHT…NOT but for most of us this is not our reality nor can we afford to live off our retirement after giving that company our blood, sweat and tears.

I discovered early on that I hated working for someone else. I didn’t like someone telling me when i could come and go but like many of us we stay because we need to pay the bills. We need to have a roof over our heads, a little food and some clothes on our backs.

I wasn’t really told to explore your passions and turn them into a viable business.

YOUR JOB AND THE 9-5 MENTALITY

For most people they feel that having a 9-5 means a guaranteed check and that one source of income is more than enough for everyday living and retirement. And to most they forget that they can be fired at anytime just because.

Now let me begin by saying that there is nothing wrong with working a 9-5. Some people are truly living out their passion and making the money they desire. They have more than enough money for the rent/mortgage, lights, phone and the list goes on but let me ask you a question?

Do you have the TIME FREEDOM you desire to live a true and fulfilled life? Many will say NO to this important question and that can be a problem.

Are you able to take that trip when you want?

Can you make your child’s event at  school during the day?

A lot of the time we think we are living the life we desire because we have that dream job and making the money but we have NO TIME. This is one major key factor that get’s left out of the equation.

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Now for a lot of people this is a scary word…WHY because the thought of doing it all on your own is SCARY AS HELL.

Entrepreneurship means no guarantees, entrepreneurship means it’s all on you. entrepreneurship means there is no one to take the fall but you.

The one difference between your 9-5 and entrepreneurship is that they only one who can fire you is YOU. However if you quit on you, you don’t live or eat so quitting is NEVER AN OPTION!

One of the things I discovered along my journey to entrepreneurship are the many hills and valleys you will encounter. There will be several days you will want to quit and give up however this is never an option if your goal is to live the life you desire with time freedom added into the equation.

As entrepreneurs we are now able to take advantage.

Let me ask you a few questions?

Do you pay rent/mortgage?

How about lights?

Do you pay for heat/gas for your home?

Do you have a cellphone?

Do you own a car?

Do you buy gas for your car?

Do you repair your car?

Do you ever travel?

Have you brought a new computer?

All these expenses and many more can now be a WRITE OFF.

Now, I could go on and on with this list however I think your starting to get the point. Every month we pay these expenses but as an employee we reap none of the benefits.however as a home based business owner you can now take advantage of the benefits. These everyday expenses have now became a tax deduction.

Now understand I’m not a tax consultant but I am a business owner who takes advantages of all the benefits. My question is   WHY AREN’T YOU?

YOUR JOB + ENTREPRENEURSHIP = WIN WIN

You can have the best of both worlds by simply getting yourself a home based business while employed and take advantage of all that is afforded to you. I think this is the best way to fuel your passions. Have that 9-5 to pay your everyday expenses and build your business on the side. As your business grows then you can decide if you wish to stay or walk away and live the lifestyle you desire

Let no one tell you that you can’t have it all because it’s absolutely possible.

I now have the time to drop my son off at school every morning, go to school functions during the day, take vacations when I want and just enjoy family.

It’s time to take advantage

WHO KNEW?

WHO KNEW?

What’s up bloggers and bloggetts, it’s your girl Shawne here with yet another blog for your reading pleasure.

I can’t believe the month of March is just about over and that we’re already 3 months into the new year…JUST WOW is all I can say.

I’m not sure if your aware of this tid bit or not but March, March 8th to be exact has been coined Woman’s international Day and I didn’t want to let the month end without highlighting some amazing women.

I did a video on some of the woman in my life who have made a serious impact on me. Check it out below.

With that being said I also wanted to introduce you to some other amazing women. So, sit back and enjoy.

Now for some this may not be a surprise however it was for me as it was not on my radar and caused me to say

WHO KNEW?

I was flipping channels the other day and came across an interview with the president of Pepsi Co. to my surprise I was introduced to Indra Nooyi not only is she a woman running the second largest business in the world but she’s from India. How amazing is that. And has been named among the world’s 100 most powerful women.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second amazing woman to hit my radar was Ursula Burns once the CEO from 2009-2016 and now the chairman of Xerox was the first black woman to head a fortune 500 company.  To her credit she was the first woman of color to succeed another woman who held that position Anne Mulcahy. She was named the 22nd most powerful woman by Forbes  in 2014.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The third woman on my list Is Rosalind Brewer the first African American woman to run Sam’s Club. She just retired as of February 2017 and was named the 57th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes magazine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the last woman on the list is Mary Barra the current CEO and Chairperson of General Motors. She worked her way up the ladder as she had served as the EVP of Global Product Development before her new gig and was named Times 100 most influential people in the world.

7 Networking Tips To Wealth

7 Networking Tips To Wealth

What’s up superstars, it’s your girl you know who with another you know what for your reading pleasure. Have you ever wondered what the

7 Networking Tips To Wealth

Well, in today’s post although short I will share these seven tips with you.

The first tip to wealth is

  • Your network literally does determine your net worth!  What do I mean by this, it’s quite simple who you know determines what your worth. Think of it this way if your network is mostly people who are broke then chances are your finances will look like it as well. I know harsh but true.

The second tip to wealth is

  • Business is built on relationships. People do business with people who they know, like and trust!  I’m sure you’ve heard this saying over and over again if your been online for any length of time. You have to build relationships with people. You shouldn’t just meet someone and then give them your link. Provide value to them on a daily basis and ask questions but most importantly listen. Be that problem solver.

The third tip to wealth is simple

  • If you want to earn $200K and you are now earning $40k, start hanging with people who are doing what you want to do! Learn & Earn! I don’t think any other explanation is needed. Do what the successful people do.

What’s up Rockstars, it’s me again with another you know what for your viewing pleasure. In today’s vlog I will share with you how to

Connect Via FB Memories

Have you ever connected with other like minded people but have never had a real conversation with them? Maybe you did connect with them initially but haven’t spoken in years. Well, if this is you then I have a secret to share

Connect via fb memories.

Have you ever noticed that Facebook shares your memories everyday. Did you know that it shows you not only who you connected with but how long ago you connected? Well, you can use this information to your advantage.

This is the time to open messenger and start that conversation. You can say a number of things however I would suggest not starting with hey here’s my link buy my product.

You could say something to the effect Hey……. I see we connected 4 years ago today and haven’t spoken so I thought I would reach out and say hello or just say hi and ask them what they’ve been up to. I think you get the idea.

Check out today’s video and see exactly how to
