I have received two emails this past weekend asking me - if I have no income and only expenses for my Schedule C can I deduct the expenses? What do you think the ethical answer is?

As a kid I loved the Dr. Seuss books. Every time you read his books you feel you need to rhyme, and it's hard not to. The estate of Dr. Seuss pulled a book call, "And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street". I love this story where a father tells his son to open his eyes and look at everything, observe what he sees, as he goes to school and comes home. The son begins to make up a big story about what he saw, but by th...

I am so happy to see states opening up 100% and putting healthcare decisions back in the hands of American's. However, inflation is rising, the cost of living is going up, gas and food prices are on the rise. That means our finances are going to change again. That means, you and I have to be good stewards of our money as inflation begins to hit our pocket books. Be a good steward of your finances n 2021.

If you have never watched the Gordon Ramsey show on fixing restaurants and you own a company, watch it, you will learn something. The show has the same theme in almost every show. An owner or a chef that has developed conflict in their business and it had destroyed the business, everything goes bad because of some sort of conflict. If you own a business and you are not taking responsibility for the conflict, you will destroy a b...

Nancy Pelosi and Schumer are trying to pass a bill that only covers about 1% for covid. The rest of it is for nonsense that has nothing to do with covid. The President and the Democrats are pushing a bill that does nothing for the American people. 1% of $1.9 trillion for political payback is not acceptable to the American people. Those Democrats pushing a $15 minimum wage to a covid stimulus bill has nothing to do with covid. ...

Mediation should be used in construction disputes more. There are issues that arise on almost every construction site that leads to a dispute. It can be a change order that was not approved, billing for materials not part of your construction contract, over charges, construction quality issues, construction schedules and various charges for being late, warranties on the work and the list goes on. Mediation provides both parties ...

When I went to college we were all required to take a class called, "Marriage and Family Life". The college knew that many were going to college not just for an education, but they were going to find a marriage partner at school. So we were all required to learn what we were going to get into. Once you say, "I Do", life changes, but in most of our lives we are not prepared for what is going to happen. As a Medi...

Today I am at podcast 993. I am just about to 1,000 podcasts. That is a lot of work over the years to teach business through a podcast. I have loved every moment of it.

Today's title podcast pretty much tells it all. i see people posting pictures of mounds of money or diamond studied watches on social media. Dumbest thing to do. You are posting evidence. When you are under audit or suspected of tax fraud, the IRS and vari...

In America there are 30.7 million small businesses which account for 99.9 percent of all U.S. businesses (SBA 2019). We in small business create more then 1.5 million jobs yearly and account for 64 percent of new jobs created in the U.S. (Fundera, 2019). However, with this much punch from small business to the the American job market Government seems to hate small business. Look at California as they drive people out of their st...

I love being a mediator. Mediation is another of the methods of alternative dispute resolution or ADR. In mediation, the disputing parties work with a neutral third party, the mediator, to resolve their disputes. The mediator facilitates the resolution of the parties' disputes by supervising the exchange of information and the bargaining process. The mediator helps the parties find common ground and deal with unrealistic ex...

Biden wants a stimulus plan of $1.9 trillion. Temporary band aid for about 3 weeks and a whole bunch of pork to things not even involving Covid. He wants a $15 minimum wage for some parts of the country where living is much lower then New York and California. That $15 goes up to $18 once you add in Workers Compensation, more taxes taken out, and other items associated with that wage. Wages go up, cost of goods and services go u...

Sorry about my voice this morning, I am about to loose it. Listen, the Biden economic plan stinks to high heaven. Why, because there is none. Green new deal jobs will never happen. It takes a long time to change over completely to a new system, so those jobs he thinks he will generate are way down the line, many years. Higher taxes will send jobs off shore again. Companies are already moving their capital off shore. The $15 ...
