Welcome to March! 15 days before corporate taxes are due and a little over a month before personal taxes are due. Are you getting prepared? If not, I have an interview with a CPA today to get you prepared, especially to get yourself familiar with CA Law AB5.
So much happening! Last week, stock markets took a huge dive, having one of its worst weeks since 2008. The S&P 500 index fell 11.5%, mainly because of worries that the coronavirus outbreak could become a worldwide pandemic. I did a Facebook Live last Friday on the subject of worrying about the coronavirus and how it may relate to worrying about our finances. Check it out HERE.
A couple of weeks ago and last week, I published a video interview with an entertainment lawyer about AB5, a new law that passed and went into effect this year. If you're a freelancer, a small business, and especially if you're in the entertainment, music or a creative industry and don't just get paid w-2, then you will want to watch this interview with Entertainment Lawyer Ned Menoyo. (In both interviews my clients got to ask their personal questions.)
Here's the new interview I did with Richard Prinzi, a CPA that specializes in those working in the entertainment industry. He's got a lot of good stuff to say, including how to know if you should incorporate. As mentioned previously, New York is considering similar legislation, and he's working with a group to hopefully stop it. He also answers some tax questions for clients, for this coming year.
Two weeks ago, I had the privilege of speaking on stage at Tuesdays Together's Tide Talk Event at the beautiful Barnsdall Art Park Theater in Los Angeles. I shared the stage with Rising Tide Founder Natalie Franke and Leadership and Sales Expert, the “Profit Accelerator™,” Allyson Bird, who tore down the house! It was such an honor. I have photos and a video to share (I promise!). If you were at the event and wanted to get the mini-course on how to find and release your money blocks OR you would like to work through a personal financial question, let's talk in a free 1-hour session. Both options are on my home page HERE. You can also click on my signature below. I would love to hear from you!
