I am so glad that tax season is over. I went to sign the paperwork for my forms last week and thought I was going to receive the best news ever. Well, I was disappointed. I have to pay. For the first time, I have to pay more than I ever thought I would have to give to the IRS. Now I understand why my dad always waits until the last minute to do his American duty. Uncle Sam is no joke. We all know it's been said that nothing is certain except death and taxes.
Many people will give you advice when you are beginning a new venture. Some of it will be solicited and some, well, you may not want to hear. Some advice is real talk and needs to go in one ear and stick. I have received some good information from my fellow entrepreneurers. Not everyone will believe in your dreams, so it’s important to surround yourself with people who will encourage and support you.
It seems I always get tips at the gym. I ran into a friend the other day who has been in business for more than 16 years. He gave me an earful, but it was stuff that will stick and that I want to pass along.
