What Can You Deduct on Your Taxes If You’re Self Employed?

Are you taking advantage of your tax write-offs?

For years I didn’t take advantage of all the tax benefits that I was entitled to because quite frankly, I just didn’t know what I did know.

This was costing me thousands of dollars every year.

So, I made a list and I want to share it with you.

There are many advantages to becoming a business owner but one of the biggest is your deductions.

3 Fast and Easy Ways to Invite People to like your Facebook page

Increasing your Likes on your Business Facebook page can feel like a lot of work if you’re not sure what to do.

In this blog, I’ll be sharing 3 ways you can ask people from your personal profile (and their friend) to like your page right from your phone and your computer.

As for your business page, you are asking people to like your page and you can have an unlimited number of likes. But how do you get people to like your page?
