What You Need to Know About the Legal Side of Running a Business with Bobby Klinck

Jan 11, 2021

 


In this episode of Profits + Prosecco Podcast, I am so excited to welcome Bobby Klinck as a special guest! Bobby is a Harvard Law Grad turned online entrepreneur—but he’s NOT your typical lawyer. He doesn't do suits, he hates legalese more than you do, and tends to make lame pop-culture references and dad jokes. I found Bobby through a webinar being advertised a couple of years ago. Since then, I’ve been following him and using his templates. Today, we will be diving into everything you need to know when it comes to the legal side of running a business!

Always Trust Your Gut in Life and Business

Jan 11, 2021

 


In this episode of the Profits + Prosecco Podcast, I am going to dive into the importance of trusting your gut and the journey. I know this is something we hear ALL the time, but I want to share a few stories with you on times where listening to my gut paid off in the long run. A lot of times, our brain can try to limit us and keep us safe, whereas our gut and intuition genuinely try to communicate things to us. Keep on listening to hear more about these stories that ultimately got me to where I am today as the owner of a virtual bookkeeping business!

Why Saying "No" is Important for an Intentional Business

Jan 11, 2021

 


In this episode of Profits + Prosecco Podcast, I want to talk about this two-letter word that we often give way too much power to. We let the fear of hearing the word “No” stop us from so many things. “No” shouldn’t be feared. I want to encourage you to be able to hear it, say it, receive it, and respect it. This way, you can move towards a life that you are intended to live while showing up as your best self.

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...

Business Miles: How they work and what you might be missing

May 15, 2020

Let's talk business miles! How does the deduction work? What counts as business miles? How can you track them? What's the best app, or do you need one at all?


New Here?

Be sure to sign up for free monthly bookkeeping & tax reminders sent straight to your inbox to be sure you stay on track and never miss a deadline.


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!


My recommended method

I recommend the standard mileage method...
