For my 30th birthday I was on a trip and on the airplane of all places I started crunching my business numbers to calculate my profitability. What I learned was that about 60-70% of all of my business income was going back into business expenses each month and that was wayyy too high for my service-based business that should have low overhead. I went back and started cutting expenses I didn't need to have, including trading my $1,000/month WeWork for a home office which has worked for the last year and a half.

 

My ability to contribute more to the bills provided more income for my husband to have his dream home. I...

Retirement planning is incredibly important. Before you can begin planning, here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  2. Am I up to date on my past tax returns and tax payments? (If no, check out this post).

Bonus - PPP

biz entities interview Jan 20, 2021

On this bonus episode of the podcast my guest, Kristy Runzer, CFP, about Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

 

Join the Braden's Besties Facebook Group to hear Kristy's live Q&A about PPP with Braden on January 22nd.

 

PPP became available as part of the stimulus packages. It's a forgivable loan, meaning you receive the money as a loan but as long as you use it for certain things, it's a loan that gets forgiven. As a small business, PPP is more the route to go than EDIL (the SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan program).

 

With round two of PPP now available, the first step is to determine if you qualify. Two pieces allow you to quality - 1) If you never got money in Round One you can apply like this is Round One. 2) If you did get money in Round One, the qualifier for Round Two is if you saw a 25% decrease in your revenue in any quarter in 2020 compared to that same quarter in 2019.

Ex: If Q2 in 2019 your revenue was $100,000 and in Q2 in 2020 your revenue was...
