Add a Custom Domain to Your Email to Boost Professionalism with GSuite

Oct 21, 2020
[email protected] doesn't look legit and it can cause your potential clients to question you and underbid you right from the start.
 
If I engage someone who uses @gmail (or something of the sort) I imagine they are cutting costs in all areas of their business, and their prices usually reflect it.
 
Gsuite can make your email professional by adding your domain and costs as low as $6/month so your email address can be [email protected] or [email protected]
 
It can create a legit business owner vibe that allows you to charge much more premium rates and enhance your client experience.
 
While I know we all start somewhere, it's possible to condense the amount of time it takes you to get from dabbling in your business to going all and it doesn't have to be hard or expensive.
 
Often times, it's just a small mindset shift and an act of faith in the inevitable success of your business.
 
These things may seem insignificant, but they have a...

There are two ways to deduct auto expenses

The actual method - allows you to deduct the business use percentage of actual auto expenses including gas, maintenance, insurance, and lease payments or depreciation (a specialized calculation of the cost of your vehicle over time). The business use percentage is found by tracking all miles and dividing business miles by total miles driven.

The standard mileage - allows you to deduct 57.5 cents per business mile driven. This means that for each 2 miles you drive you can deduct more than $1 worth of income and save money on your taxes. This adds up!

Business Receipts: How, When, & Why to Keep Them

May 08, 2020

Keeping receipts overwhelms most entrepreneurs and if you're like me, paper does too.

If you put a solid system in place and use your business card only for business, keeping receipts is easy and you likely won't ever have to reference them.


New Here?

Be sure to sign up for my free membership where I’ll send monthly tax deadlines and bookkeeping reminders to your inbox to be sure you stay on track and never miss a deadline.


Why keep receipts?

To prove that your purchases were for legitimate business expenses if you were ever questioned under an audit. Example: If you purchase $300 from Target, they want to see you bought office supplies and not bedding.


When do you need to?

When you pay cash or when the transaction is over $75. The IRS allows you to use your bank statement for purchases under $75.


How to make it so you don't need to reference receipts for your bookkeeping:

  1. Use your business card only for business purchases
  2. If you are at the...

How to DIY Your Bookkeeping Without a Monthly Fee

Mar 31, 2020

In this post we'll discuss how to do your own bookkeeping without paying for a monthly subscription based software like QuickBooks which can run you roughly $25 per month.

I often see clients coming to me who have been paying for subscription based bookkeeping software, yet either not using it or using it in a way that adds no value and it becomes just another wasted expense versus bringing clarity and value that leads to increased profits, which is my favorite part of bookkeeping when done right.

First thing's first, I typically recommend outsourcing your bookkeeping if you are profitable.  It allows you to stay within your zone of genius, add hours back into your work week, relieve a source of stress, and gain clarity in your business that leads to extra money.  If you're ready to outsource, book a call and let's chat.

That being said, I do understand that some businesses are just getting started, may be spending more than they're making, but still need to see...

How to Use Your Business to Build Your Dream Life

Mar 10, 2019

My favorite thing about entrepreneurship is that it is completely customizable.  You can make as much or as little as you want and work as much or as little as you want - just as long as you're being mindful and intently working your business around your dreams.

This may not happen in the first year or two, but as you get clearer on what needs to be done and what you actually want, you'll be able to start making your business work for you, and not the other way around.

Today I'm going to talk about how to use your business to build your dream life.

3 Ways to Increase Profit

Feb 25, 2019

Profit is one of the most powerful measurements in your business.  It's just your sales minus your costs, and is essentially the money you're left with after you finish paying the cost of doing business.

It's not uncommon for small businesses to lose money and never see a profit until the day they decide to finally close up shop and call it quits.  Then there are businesses that are profiting, but definitely have room to increase their profits, stay in business for the long term, and change not only the lives of the owners, but the employees and people who the business impacts.

In the last blog post, we talked about how profit is much more impressive than sales, how to calculate your profit (or loss), and 3 tips to keep it simple.  If you missed that one, it's a good idea to go back and start there.

In this post we're going to be taking it a step further and using the information your profit and loss shows you to increase profits in 3...
