1. The Basic Tax Deductions Most Small Businesses Forget
As the tax deadline approaches, tax expert Mark Kohler reminds small business owners that there’s a long list of potential deductions they could be taking to take a load off of what they owe to Uncle Sam. Kohler’s list includes cell phone, dining, entertainment, home office, PDA, laptop, and travel. “So many people are not taking advantage of just those basic deductions in their small business,” he says. “It can really add up quickly and then provide huge savings on the back end.”
2. 3 Ways to Save Your Business from Failing

3. Writing Used to Be Hard. Then I Tried This…
“When you’re building a business you need to write,” Derek Halpern of Social Triggers begins this excellent video on “writing smarter and faster, even if you’re not a writer.” Halpern understands that for many people writing is tedious, time-consuming, and pull-your-hair-out frustrating—he used to be one of those people. But then a quote by famous copywriter Eugene Schwartz (“Copy is never written. Copy is assembled.”) inspired him to develop a 5-step writing process that helps him pump out quality content super fast. It really does work!
