Net Profit vs. Gross Profit

Jun 19, 2024

This week is a little different from the rest because I’m on vacation! My tasks for this week are to relax, be present with my family, and watch Adalynn, play in the sand for the first time. There’s something magical about seeing her tiny hands discover the world around her. It’s moments like these that […]

What is a bookkeeper, accountant, and CPA?

Jun 12, 2024

I’m currently in the middle of packing for a beach trip. Yes, I’m already dreaming of the ocean waves and sand between my toes! You know how it is — getting all those last-minute things done, so I can truly relax and not think about anything business-related while I’m away. But before I hit the […]

Self-Employment Tax Overview

Jun 5, 2024

I’ve got some exciting news to share, and it’s not just about my daughter Adalynn’s first swim class. Though that was pretty adorable!  Picture a 14-month-old and her daddy singing songs and kicking in the pool! My heart melted into a puddle!  I can’t wait for the next one!

What are Estimated Taxes?

May 8, 2024

Tell me I’m not the only one…. If you spread out a price into several payments instead of one payment, it somehow makes your brain feel like it isn’t quite as “big” of a hit to your bank account. For instance, seeing $1,000 could take your breath away, but four payments for $250 doesn’t seem […]

Ordinary and Necessary Business Expenses

May 1, 2024

This week, I was on a mission to find new wedding shoes. The souls peeled off the front of one of my pairs from last year, and the other was starting to rip down the side. I put them to good use. I figured that probably wouldn’t be the best look on a wedding day… […]

What are Business Travel Expenses?

Apr 24, 2024

So far this year, I have turned on the OOO responder and traveled to Texas and Florida! I had never been to Texas before, and Florida is always a favorite place to visit. Texas was for the Creative Educator Conference. It was freezing cold, so I didn’t really explore the state but got to connect […]

It’s Valentine’s Day. We all get a little dressed up and hop into the car for a dinner out. It’s our first time celebrating as a family of three. We pull into the restaurant parking lot with our eyes set on a spot. Then all of a sudden… The entire car viciously drops and pops […]
