New York Times: Still on the Job, but at Half the Pay

Still on the Job, but at Half the Pay

“What this means,” said Thomas J. Nardone, an assistant commissioner at the bureau, “is that the amount of money people are paid has taken a big hit; not just those who have lost their jobs, but those who are still employed.”

I have friends that thought they had a secure job working for the state. Their hours have been cut back and now they are under great financial stress. Now more than ever it is vital that everyone establish multiple sources of income. If you are able to dedicate 10 hours a week, it is possible to build a solid long-term business with ethics and integrity. A business you and your family will be proud of. All it takes is finding the right company and the right team that will be there for you working side-by-side every step of the way.

The truth about income claims

Making income claims to build your buisness is illegal Recently I saw a post on a social networking site where a leader in a network marketing (MLM) company bragged about the number of people in their downline and the gobs of money they were making in such a short time.While it is fairly common especially on places like Facebook and MySpace to see people use income claims as a means for recruitment, this particular post got me thinking.

I know many good, well meaning people that talk about the money they or their upline makes as a decision point for joining their business.

 

Many don’t know that they are, in fact, committing a crime.

How to Set Up a Pinterest Business Page

If you own a small business, at a bare minimum, you need to set up your business page for the major social media site.  You can not create your business page on pinterest as  discussed in their blog.

You can either sign up or convert your existing account.  Business pages on pinterest are free, allow you to display a verification badge, and add buttons and widgets to your website.

No Business Plan = No Tax Benefits

We all must pay our share - the key is to ONLY pay your share

Maybe a better title is No business plan means your tax benefits may be taken away from you during an audit.  No matter how you slice it, any home business without a good business plan can and has been considered a “hobby” by the IRS.

There are even cases where this has gone to court and the judge has sided with the IRS that their home business was just a hobby and did not qualify for any tax benefits.

This means that if you have been good about taking full advantage of all the tax benefits afforded to home  business owners without the proper documentation, you are sitting on a fiscal time bomb.

Franchise Pros International – Superior Consulting Services For All Things Franchise

Achieve Your Dreams of Business Ownership Today!Here is what Paula from Franchise Pros International had to say about working with Chris:

“For anyone looking to jump into social media but don’t know where to start, Chris is your guy. In this day and age, every business owner, small or otherwise needs to be well versed in social media.

No longer do print ads in magazines and newspapers produce results; direct mail doesn’t get the response; and networking is too time intensive.   And the problem is that for someone who is not all that computer savvy, it can be quite overwhelming and intimidating.  But rest assured, with Chris as your guide you are in good hands.

Not only is he a self-professed computer geek, but he is able to take you every step of the way in simple, understandable terms.  In this world of technology where everything is changing almost daily, I can count on Chris to have the most up-to-date information. And if for some reason something is not self-evident, he knows exactly where to go and how to get the valued information.  I feel lucky to have found Chris to help walk me through this confounding maze of social media.”
