5 Self-Employed Tax Tips Every Network Marketer Needs to Know

Sep 26, 2018

Let’s talk about self-employed tax tips for network marketers.

You found a product you love and made the decision to sell it.  Awesome!  I’ve seen the potential network marketing can have and I certainly relate to the desire to earn extra income and break free of the life sucking 9-5.  I’ve seen people leave all sorts of traditional jobs and become full time network marketers and they end up much happier and more fulfilled than in any of their other careers. 

Maybe you’re partially motivated by the discounts on products you already use and love, or maybe you’re putting all your effort into making sure this can lead to a full-time gig.  I’ve met women who fall into either of these categories and they're both ok!

In either scenario, you definitely have to consider taxes because… congrats, lady!  You’re self-employed now!  Official #bossbabe status!  Now not only are you able to use...

7 Sales Tax Basics for the Busy Entrepreneur

Sep 18, 2018

Do you have a firm grasp on sales tax and your business? 

Sales tax is a mother and it’s super important that you’ve considered it.  It can either seem deceptively easy so you ignore it, or it can be totally overwhelming.  Sales tax is a widely neglected area that is majorly important and constantly changing, especially if you sell products online – that goes for tangible products (ones you can touch) or digital ones.

Lots of people have confusion here, so I’m going to provide some clarity regarding sales tax basics for busy entrepreneurs in this article.

Why I worry about today’s entrepreneurs

Sep 17, 2018

As a CPA, I worry about entrepreneurs more than ever. 

One thing I’ve noticed when talking to a lot of entrepreneurs is they aren't all sure that’s what they are.  So, let me clarify – if you make any side income that doesn’t go on a paycheck with taxes taken out – you are self-employed! 

This goes for people who drive for Uber, deliver for Instacart, sell products through a direct sales or MLM company, sell items on Esty (or any other online platform), and so on.  If you earn money directly from your own customers or clients or if you receive a 1099 at the end of the year because you were paid as an independent contractor – you are self-employed as far as the IRS is concerned, and there’s definitely more to it than the simplicity of being an employee.

Being self-employed is amazing and I’m a passionate supporter of entrepreneurship.  I love seeing people believe in themselves, take a leap of faith and put...

3 things you need to know about tax and accounting as your own boss

Sep 13, 2018

So you started out in business on your own?

That's great!

I've been in your shoes. Entrepreneurship gives you all the emotions.  Excitement, fear, anxiety, empowerment. You're learning new things every day and hustling hard to get your product or service out to the world and start bringing in the moo-lah so you can pay the bills and work towards financial freedom.

It's busy. It's exciting. And it can be really overwhelming.  

Am I right?

If you're like most of my friends starting out on their own, I bet there's one part of your business that's hanging out on the back burner - the numbers side of things.

Look - I get it.  The numbers side of your business isn't the fun part.  It's not your passion, it's not going to get you any likes or attention, and it seems like it can wait.  It's easy to neglect, especially if it overwhelms you as it is.  


Waiting around does not make this responsibility go away.  If you're neglecting the...
