Secrets to Masterful Manifestation

How would you like to become more skilled at turning your dreams into 
reality with greater ease?

I know I’m sure in for that!  And if becoming more masterful at 
manifestation is something that appeals to you too, I’ve got great news.

On Saturday, February 8th at 10:00 am Pacific time, 1:00 pm Eastern time,
The Shift Network is hosting Marcia Wieder, the founder of Dream University 
and personal coach to thought leaders like Jack Canfield, on a FREE 
call titled: From Magical Thinking to Masterful Manifestation: 
How to Create Real Results.

What I love most about Marcia is she’s known as the “practical 
visionary’s” teacher.  Her approach to manifestation doesn't promise 
to make it effortless or instant (which are more magical fantasies), 
but rather how to make it more joyful, exciting, and effective, as well 
as aligned with your heart and soul.

Marcia knows, perhaps better than anyone I’ve ever come in contact 
with, how to help you tap into your natural enthusiasm and use your 
passion as your fuel to take your vision and boldly turn them into 
concrete, successful results. She's deeply spiritual and no-nonsense 
practical at the same time.

Basic Taxes for Home Based Business Owners

Taxes are the one expense that universally every business has
to worry about. Many business owners don't pay enough attention
to taxes. Your taxes can amount to as much as a third of all your
income. It makes sense to learn as much as you can about how
to mitigate and reduce your taxes.

Here are some of the most important things you need to know
about how to lower your tax bill, while still keeping on Uncle Sam's
good side.

==> Document, Document, Document

The secret to success with taxes is to document everything.
Document where all your income came from. Document all your
expenses. Document who you ate dinner with and what you talked

Receipts can be stored physically or digitally. There are a lot of
different scanning and record keeping services online today that
make it easy to keep accurate records.

==> Cash Method versus Accrued Method

Decide whether to use the cash method or the accrued method
for tracking your expenses. Talk to your accountant to see which
makes the most sense for your company.

With the cash method, you count your profits and losses the
moment cash is made or lost. With accrued, you count it when
the cashflow is added to the books, rather than when the cash hits
the bank. So if you make a sale today but don't get paid for 60 days,
that money is still accrued today.

This has a huge impact on your taxes. For example, with the cash
method, if you had a big profit this year you could pay up front for all
your advertising for the next six months and actually "lose money"
for the year even though you were profitable.

==> You Get about $5,000 Free Each Year

Know that every year you get about $5,000 of tax free income.
The exact number changes from year to year.

==> Deducting Your Home Office

If you have a home office, that office can be deducted. In order for
this to count, you must have an area of your home that's used
exclusively for business.

Figure out what percentage of your home's square footage is taken
up by your home office. You can deduct that percentage of your rent
as a business expense.

==> Depreciation

Depreciation is a tax credit for "things breaking down" or getting less
valuable over time. All office equipment, including computers and
printers and chairs, has depreciation deductions.

If you own your home, you can even get a depreciation deduction
for your home office space.

==> Turbo Tax versus Accountants

Should you file your own taxes or should you hire an accountant?

If your taxes are relatively simple and you've filed your taxes with an
accountant for the last few years, using TurboTax is perfectly okay.

On the other hand, if it's your first time filing taxes as a home based
business, going with a real accountant can help make the process a
lot smoother. They'll be able to answer any questions you have and
help you identify ways to save money.

Taxes are a complex thing. Fortunately, you really only need to figure
it out once. Once you know how it works, you'll be able to track all your
expenses and deductions in a fairly intuitive manner.

Top Questions to Ask before Launching Your Own Business

If you have decided to launch a business, you have made a very courageous choice.
There are many things you need to know before launching a new business. There is
inventory to take into consideration, initial start-up cost and upkeep, hiring employees,
sales, marketing...and the list goes on extensively.

Here are some top questions you need to ask yourself before launching your own business.
Are you launching this business for the right reasons? Sometimes an individual or a
group of individuals will launch a business because they think it is expected of them or
because it is a family tradition to do so. Other reasons are simply for the monetary benefits.
With high hopes of making tons of money, sometimes a new entrepreneur may lose sight
of his or her customer.

Once you examine your motives behind starting up a new business, go on to the next
important question. Once you know what type of business you want to begin, ask yourself
who your target audience is. Knowing that you want to create a business and knowing what
that business is will simply not be enough. You need to know who your target audience is
and who your ideal customer is.

Honing in on a target audience is something that you can delve into even deeper by creating
a specific niche and then going on to create a sub-niche. In this manner, you will be certain
that you have focused on a specific need for an even more specific customer.

Have you thoroughly researched your action plan? Setting goals and measuring them is
essential when launching a new business. Put a plan into motion, but allow yourself flexibility
to expand on that original plan. Ask yourself if your business plan is too narrow minded or if
it will achieve the desired outcome you seek and go beyond even that.

Make sure you research if there is enough demand for the product or service you are offering
or if you will be just another company offering the same old thing. Ask yourself if you can put a
new innovative twist onto something tried and true.

Ask yourself how much time you are willing to dedicate to this business. What if this business
is something that you will find success with right away? Are you willing and able to put the time
and trouble in if it does become successful right away?

Also, think about whether or not this is a part-time business or a full-time endeavor. Do you have
enough funds to last for six months to a year until your business becomes steady enough to stand
on its own two feet?

Once you are able to answer these important questions, you can be well on your way to having
a successful business endeavor.
