I’ve been busily writing, running my business, volunteering and running my son around town for activities so writing for my own blog has unfortunately fallen by the wayside. But I thought I’d share a few things I’ve written for clients lately.
Are you a new small business owner who’s heard about depreciation but aren’t quite sure what it is or how to apply it to your business? Check out Make the Most of Your Business Expenses: What You Need to Know About Depreciation. In the article, I give a quick and dirty guide to what depreciation is, how it’s calculated, and how to claim it in your business. Depreciation is a BIG subject, but I tried to whittle it down to just the basics every small business owner needs to know.
Cash flow. It’s an issue for many small business owners, even when they have health revenues. Check out Could a Small Loan for Business Help You Manage Cash Flow? I provide tips for managing cash flow and some information on short-term financing options to see your business through the inevitable late-paying clients and lean months.
Do you hire employees in your small business? If so, you might be facing the same issue shared by every employer, large or small right now: a tight labor market. While money isn’t the only reason employees come to work for you, salary is still a primary factor in why employees leave or stay. I wrote How to Figure Out and Present a Fair Salary Offer for Accounting Principals to help employers narrow in on a salary offer that falls into the sweet spot between overpaying for talent and losing trust with candidates.
Parker + Lynch
Also on the topic of hiring, I wrote Salary is Every Employer’s Ace in the Hole for Parker + Lynch. In the article, I make a case for why employers should be more transparent with their salary ranges – even including them in job ads – if they want to attract more candidates to apply for roles.
If you’re looking for a topic geared more toward personal finance, I recently started writing for UpsideDoor. Check out How Does Equity Impact My Next Home Purchase? to learn how the equity you have in your current home impacts the next house you’ll buy. While you’re there, sign up for their email alerts – some exciting things are coming from this company and I can’t wait to check them out!
I spend a lot of time writing about income taxes, accounting, mortgages and personal finance. That’s why I love writing for Carvana. It gives me a chance to think about and research topics off the beaten path (for me). As I look out my window to see the leaves starting to change colors and football flags in my neighbor’s yard, it seems funny to share Nine Tips for Protecting Your Car From Summer Heat. Maybe bookmark that one to read next June!
Those are just a few of the articles I’ve written lately. I’m also in talks with several potential new clients and headed to #FinCon18 in two weeks. Great things are happening! So thank you for reading the content I share!
