Is there anything more scary than getting ready for your taxes in your small business? Last year was my first year of being officially in business and having to get my act together to file taxes was more than SCARY for me.
I do have an accountant who helps me with my taxes and he’s great, but you can’t just show up with a shoebox full of receipts and expect a good outcome. You have to know how to track your business income properly throughout the year. You also need to know what expenses you will be able to write off, so you can keep proper track. I had SOME idea, but as I went on, I discovered that there was a LOT I didn’t know.

My Solution for my Business Taxes
That’s where Andi Smiles came in. I’m part of her free Facebook group – Boss Babes Business Finance And she does Facebook Lives about a lot of helpful topics, like hourly or package pricing, how to handle contractors, mileage, home office expenses. And let me tell you, I had a LOT of questions.
Andi and the people in the group were able to answer a lot of my questions. But when it come down to the actual moment of truth, I’ll be honest, I was panicking just a little bit. So I was delighted to discover her product – Panic Free Tax Prep.
It just takes an hour to master these concepts and she’s got several tracking sheets, workbooks, etc. I found it immensely helpful and I will be referring to it again for for my second round of taxes.
This is a terrific, helpful product and it’s not very expensive. A bit more than a pizza, but less than a tank of gas.

Blogging resources I love and recommend:
Tailwind – I’ve been working with Tailwind for about five years. They are the pin scheduler of choice and it is jam-packed with great features. If you haven’t already, sign up for a FREE month of Tailwind HERE.
The Isabelle theme by Bluchic – is my favorite theme for WordPress websites. I’ve used it to build a bunch of different websites. It’s pretty, easy to customize, and really simple to use. It’s shown in a very pale pink, but I’ve done it in turquoise, emerald green, and navy/gold color schemes. For safety and security reasons, I will not ever use a free WordPress theme. This is the engine that powers and protects your website. Learn about the Isabelle theme HERE.
Legal Templates – You are required by law to have a certain package of legalese on your blog. You need to have copyright notices, privacy policies, and various other terms and conditions to protect yourself from being sued. The package I recommend is created by Amira Law – a lawyer who specializes in all aspects of blogging and internet business legalities. Learn more about these Legal Templates HERE.
Pinterest Resources – Pinterest is definitely my jam. I have an Ebook that is very affordable and is packed with helpful tips. OR, if you want a more personalized touch, I will do a Pinterest/Tailwind audit where I go over your account with a 30-point checklist and then set up a Zoom call with you to give you TONS of suggestions. Order the Ebook HERE and the Pinterest Audit HERE.
