    Tax Attorney Pennsylvania

     

    Pennsylvania Tax Attorney: Choosing the Right One Do you owe the government taxes? Are you being audited by the Internal Revenue Services? Are you being accused of committing tax crime? If you answer affirmatively in one or more of the aforementioned queries, then you certainly needed the services of a tax attorney. How can you be certain that you need tax attorney’s services? Well, you have to consider several things. First, if you think that the tax problem will not complicate things if ignored then; the answer is on the negative. However, if it will worsen when ignored, better get yourself an attorney before it’s too late to do so. You might be subject to penalties or worst imprisonment. Tax penalties include fines, liens, levies, interests, and other penalties. Moreover, in criminal cases failure to pay tax or employing tax fraud can put the taxpayer to jail. So, you have decided to hire the services of a tax attorney. How are you to choose the right one? Remember that attorneys may either have a field of specialization or opt to become a general practitioner. Moreover, in choosing a tax attorney, be sure that he is an expert on taxation. However, it should not end there. Also consider his reputation and past records in defending his clients. Be sure that he is of good standing in that particular field of law. Also consider the attorney’s fees. As you know, legal services are not cheap. In fact, if you insist to remedy your tax trouble yourself, the cost might multiply. Attorney’s fees may vary according to place, achievements, and the like. Hence, before you ponder on other considerations, think of this aspect first. You might get frustrated if you have chosen an ideal lawyer yet; cannot afford his legal services. Talk to several tax attorneys. Ask them about their fee arrangements. To help you further, here are the common fee arrangements of tax attorneys: 1. Flat or Fixed Rate. This arrangement covers a set of fees for a particular legal service. 2. Hourly Rate. The fee is based on the time spent by the lawyer on your legal problem. 3. Contingent Fee. The fee is dependent on the amount of recovery secured by the lawyer. A fixed percentage of which will serve as attorney’s fees. Nevertheless, you will still be responsible for particular expenses like filing fees, court costs, telephone charges, copies, and more. Another factor to consider is time. Time is one essential factor in tax problems. Time is always of the essence. Penalties will accumulate if your tax burden is not remedied at the earliest possible time. Further, you may also lose your chance to appeal, if you let the grace period lapse. You should also consider your personal preferences in choosing a tax attorney. Do you prefer seasoned lawyers? How about the gender? The personality of the lawyer must also be taken into consideration. He must be easy to talk with and confide to. This is because sensitive and confidential matters must be communicated to a tax lawyer so that he can give you the appropriate legal measures to apply. If some things regarding tax burdens are hidden from him, it will redound to the disadvantage of the client. All these factors must be contemplated to choose a lawyer that can work with you efficiently. In the end, it is essential to pick someone whom you can trust to do the best possible legal remedy for you.

    Record Setting Season For Us Men S Sabre

     

    The race to Olympic qualification is like the Indy 500. The race is a rolling start where you get to carry the momentum from prior tournaments into the race. In terms of Olympic qualification, things are looking good for the US Men's Sabre team as they are off to a torrid pace for the first half of the 2007 World Cup Season. With 3 world team events remaining, the US team ranks 8th in the world and is the top team from the Americas zone, both of which would qualify the US team for the Olympics if the selection were today. In the most recent Men's Sabre world cup event, Tim Morehouse took silver in his loss to world #2 Julien Pillet by one point, 15 14, in the final match. That placement vaulted Morehouse into the top 32 in the world individual rankings where he joins his 3 teammates. When commenting on the team's success, Morehouse says, "We have had 6 world cups in a row with an American in the top 8 at least and 3 with an American in the top 4. Ivan Lee third in Istanbul, Jason Rogers third in Bulgaria and yself being 2nd in Algeria. We have never done this before. The only run similar was Keeth by himself in 2003 2004 season when he went to #1 with 4 or 5 top 4s in a row. This is now new territory for us. For the first time in history we also have 4 Americans in the top 32." Final placement during the 2007 season and performance at the 2007 World Championships in St. Petersburg, Russia will set the stage for the Olympic qualifying season. Every team is now jockying for position to make sure they have the easiest path during the 2007 2008 season to qualify for the Beijing Games. Once again, the US team is making sure that it is in the running.

    Irish Graphic Design Industry

     

    Graphic design is the use of color, light, balance, contrast, emphasis, proportion, proximity, repetition, texture and a plethora of other elements to create a work of digital art that is pleasing to the eye. Graphic design is about seamlessly molding image and text to convey a theme, message, or often advertise a product or service. Graphic design dates back to prehistoric times. With hieroglyphs and cave dwelling designs that became some of the first written language. Although communication, not aestheticism, was the primary concern, one can still argue for the overall visual design of the prehistoric artists. With the 1584 Gutenberg Printing Press, graphic design took on a whole new meaning. Now, text, coupled with visual appeal, could reach a wider audience than ever before. Although the use was at first primarily for Biblical and other important writings, the trend would soon spread to visual appeal. Graphic design, as we know it, didn't reach its boom until the computer era. With companies finding it increasingly necessary to have a corporate identity solution, visually pleasing logo, and an online presence, graphic designers are definitely getting all the work they can handle. Today, graphic design and website design are two separate, but closely related, entities. Most all websites offer some visual appeal that is, they include graphical elements. When one understands this, they can really begin to grasp the widespread effect that graphic design can have. Creating something with aesthetic appeal is a laborious task, when one considers all the elements of graphic design, along with the viewing audience. Attempting to convey an emotion or theme is especially difficult. Special consideration to the following principles is necessary mood, style, message, and hierarchy. Moreover, one must consider the audience. Although anyone can view a website, logo, or corporate identity package, only a few are really in the 'target audience.' With graphic design's worldwide appeal, designers have developed geographic markets in which to showcase their talents. With Ireland's technology boom, a widespread graphic design industry has developed. A Google. com search for "Irish Graphic Design" yields almost 2 million results, a true testament to this unparalleled growth. One of the front runners in this burgeoning population of graphic design studios is Red Fly Studios. While Red Fly is a full service firm offering web application development and design, their attention to graphic design detail is unmatched. Take a look through Red Fly's portfolio, compare to other Irish design firms, and you'll see that the company has a lot to offer.

    Asset Protection

     

    WHAT IS ASSET PROTECTION? By: Steven Rich, MBA Marketing Manager for Panama Offshore Legal Serevices Everyone should be afraid of being sued with so many lawsuits being filed now days around the world. You might think that you may never be sued. How wrong you are! Let's first take a look at how easy it is to be sued now days. One of the first dangers is being indirectly involved with a lawsuit. THE DANGERS OF JOINT & SEVERAL LIABILITY This is a legal concept whereby an individual could be sued as a second or third defendant without having been directly involved with the original injury to the plaintiff. Here are some examples of how you can be sued for Joint and Several Liability: 1. Your business partner commits theft, fraud, or a personal injury in the course of conducting business. 2. Your spouse is accused of theft, fraud, or a personal injury and the plaintiff sues the entire marital community (including you). 3. You render assistance to someone who was injured by another person and the plaintiff sues you along with the person who actually committed the injury. 4. A friend or relative borrows your car and gets into an accident. As the car's owner you get sued along with the driver. 5. Your company gets sued for sex discrimination committed by one of your employees and you get named as a defendant because it's your company. 6. Your real estate investment partnership, joint venture, or company gets sued by the federal or a state government because toxic waste is discovered on the property. 7. The IRS, or Revenue agency sues your partnership, joint venture, or company for tax evasion. There are many more examples I could provide. The main thing is that you can be sued and become jointly and severally liable for an injury to someone without having been personally negligent. All that is necessary is that you were connected in some way. If you are dragged into a lawsuit and the other defendants are without assets or insurance, you may end up being held liable for the full amount of the judgment! WHAT ABOUT INSURANCE? Many lawyers recommend you purchase at least $1 Million insurance for each of your businesses, homes, land, cars, motorcycles, and boats you own. This will cost you $ thousands in premiums every year depending on how large a deductible (which you'll pay to the plaintiff) you are willing to afford. But, is that really enough? $ MILLIONS CAN BE AT STAKE Let's take a look at how large some of these lawsuit judgments can be. There is a book entitled, The Professional Asset Protection Manual by Florida attorney Mark Warda (Galt Press) which lists some of the recent outrageous jury awards in the United States. For example: $84.5 million for children drowned and brain damaged in a swimming pool. $49 million for a stillborn baby. $41 million for a misdiagnosis of abdominal pain. $5.87 million for sponsoring a party where a guest later caused an auto accident. $986,000 to a woman who lost her “psychic powers” after a CAT scan. $300,000 for slapping a daughter twice on the face. $75,000 for spraying perfume on a person without permission. $60,000 for cursing, which caused “emotional distress”. Here are some other recent examples: $12.7 million for a mistake in medication administered by a nurse. $12 million to a doctor for failing to take a blood test for a rare disorder. $7 million to a laborer who lost a limb at work on a construction job. $160,000 to an employee who was “goosed” by fellow employees. Don't forget the widely publicized $2.7 million award to Stella Liebeck (for her injuries from spilling some hot McDonald's coffee between her legs while driving). In addition to the court award, you must pay $ Thousands to your defense attorney! Don't forget the many hours you will spend meeting with your attorney, answering written questions (interrogatories) from the plaintiff's attorney, attending depositions where the plaintiff's attorney will grill you, attending court hearings (motions), and the trial itself. Add all of the time and expense to the psychological and physical stress you will endear. Just because I am using examples from the United States, citizens of Canada, Europe, Russia, Central & South America, and even communist China are being sued for similar injuries. HOW CAN YOU PROTECT YOURSELF? The best solution is to strip yourself of all assets and become what is known as "judgment proof" amongst the personal injury trial lawyers. Most lawyers charge their clients no direct fee for filing a personal injury lawsuit. This is known as a "contingent" fee. It means that the lawyer will collect no fee unless he wins the lawsuit and can collect the court awarded judgment amount. Before a lawsuit is filed, a careful lawyer will research the defendant's ability to pay a court judgment. If the defendant is "judgment proof" meaning he has no insurance, no ownership of assets that can be seized to pay off a court judgment; the lawyer will not want to sue that defendant. That's because the lawyer will spend all of his time and money pursuing a lawsuit with no hope of ever getting paid. So, how can you make yourself Judgment Proof? OFFSHORE CORPORATIONS, TRUSTS & PRIVATE INTEREST FOUNDATIONS Owning a corporation set up in your own country may provide a little protection. However, a domestic corporation can be sued as well. In addition, your shares in a corporation are assets in which a judgment creditor can seize. OFFSHORE CORPORATION: A better solution is to set up a corporation outside of your country (offshore). An Offshore Corporation can own real estate and vehicles in your country. For even better protection, set up different Offshore Corporations so each owns one of your major assets. For instance, one corporation owns your cars, another owns one piece of real estate, and another owns different real estate. As the old saying goes: "Don't put all of your eggs in one basket." Therefore, use Offshore Corporations to purchase your homes, office buildings, apartments, condos, raw land, and vehicles. The corporations then rent them back to you. Now you are no longer the owner of these assets. They are owned by Offshore Corporations. You are merely a tenant. Remember this, it is important that you sign a written lease agreement (preferably in front of a Notary Public) for these properties and duly Record them with the correct state or government agency requiring you to do so. For instance, a notarized Lease Agreement properly describing the real property must be filed with the appropriate county, state, or provincial government office. Now you have written proof that you are not the owner of the real properties and vehicles which you are using. Also, remember to always pay your rent. If you have a written rental agreement which you violate by refusing to pay rent, it can be declared a sham by the courts. All of the rent you pay will be deposited into your Offshore Corporation's foreign bank account. As for cash, deposit as much money into the Offshore Corporation's foreign bank account as you can. These cash assets will also be protected from any court judgment against you. ONE WEAKNESS: While an Offshore Corporation can legally own and rent your assets back to you, there is still one weakness when it comes to Asset Protection. The corporation's shares may be in your name, or if they are in a form called "Bearer's Shares", they are still in your control. The IRS and most countries' Revenue agencies require you to disclose any ownership in foreign corporations and bank accounts. In addition, a court could order such disclosures in a lawsuit. You can avoid this weakness by having all of the Offshore Corporation's shares held by either an Offshore Trust or a Private Interest Foundation. Then you can truthfully tell the IRS, Revenue and courts that you do not have ownership in any foreign corporations or bank accounts. IMPORTANT: Before you set up Offshore Corporations and transfer assets to them, here is one more important fact. You must transfer your assets before you get into legal trouble or become exposed to a lawsuit. FRAUDULENT CONVEYANCE: This is a legal term for someone who tries to hide assets from creditors knowing that a lawsuit has or will be filed against him. It is an attempt to illegally hide assets. Such assets will not be protected from a court judgment. If assets are transferred before any act which arises into a lawsuit occurs, those assets will be protected. In other words, create your Offshore Corporations now and transfer ownership of your assets to them before you get into trouble. CONCLUSION Asset Protection is necessary in today's lawsuit crazy world. While the steps we have summarized for you above may seem difficult and complex, they really are not. That's because using experts who know how to set up Offshore Corporations, Trusts and/or Private Interest Foundations will make this easy for you. Protect Your Ass(ets) and feel better for the future! © COPYRIGHT, 2006 Steven Rich, MBA All Rights Reserved

    A Beginners Guide To Online Dating 5 Great Tips

     

    Did you know that two out of five single people in the UK now use some kind of on line dating service? That's 40% of all singles! Unfortunately, the percentage of these people who actually find a real romance as a direct result of their site memberships is very low probably less than 10%. Why is this? Well, it's true that some sites are better than others; they have more traffic, they are better to navigate; they just 'work' whilst others just don't. But what really matters is how you use a site when you actually sign up to one. Take my word for it, unless you take the five simple steps that I'm about to outline, you may as well do something more productive with your time than join a singles site. What I'm about to say may sound obvious and rather simplistic, but you'd be surprised at how many people don't bother doing the 'obvious'. So here goes... 1. Create A Great Profile. This is the most important aspect of your dating site experience. Don't just say 'Nice guy seeks nice girl for trips to the cinema' how boring does that sound? Take the time to say something about yourself, your lifestyle, your interests and the type of person you're hoping to meet. And remember to sound happy, upbeat, fun and confident; if you're miserable about your recent breakup, then keep it to yourself! This isn't the time for modesty; if you think you're pretty darn attractive, then be sure to say so. And humour is a real ice breaker if you can make someone laugh, they'll be more likely to want to contact you. 2. Always Upload A Photo. Even if you don't have a very flattering one to hand, you should always post a pic with your profile. Remember, 95% of people on dating sites only search for other members who have bothered to provide a picture of themselves. You want to see what other potential partners look like so it stands to reason that other people will want to know what you look like too. If your photo isn't recent or isn't a great likeness of you, you can always say so in your profile. 3. Be Proactive. Don't just join a site and expect other people to contact you. Make sure you regularly search the database for people with whom you might be compatible and when you find someone you like the look or sound of, write to them immediately and tell them why you think you might be a good fit. 4. Write Great Emails. OK, you've joined a dating site, you've searched for other members who fall within your specified categories, and you've been presented with a page of matching profiles. You're eager to fire off a few emails...but what on earth do you say in them? Re read the paragraph above about creating a great profile and apply the same rules to the first email that you send to another member. If it looks like you can't be bothered to say much or that you're sending the same one line message to several people, then they probably wont bother to reply. Tell that person a little about who you are and why you think you might both be compatible respond directly to what you've read in that person's profile sound interested and interesting and you'll get an email by return sound boring and downbeat and you'll just be ignored. 5. Check Back With The Site. There are two reasons why you should do this as often as possible. The most obvious one is to keep up to speed with who has joined since you last logged on; that special someone might have signed up since you last visited the site so don't miss out. However, what most people don't realise is that when you log in to a dating site, your profile moves up the listings on the internal search engine which means that you are more likely to be spotted and subsequently contacted by other people. Don't be a stranger to the site you've joined and I recommend that you visit the site at least once a day during the lifetime of your membership. So there you have it 5 easy ways to make your chosen dating site work for YOU. Have fun and happy hunting!

    On The Nature Of Evil

     

    In psychological terms, evil is an aberration of the ego. An evil ego has a strong desire to dominate other egos. An evil person knows that terror is the most effective way to dominate other people because terror induces incapacitating fear. People who are stricken with fear cannot take effective action to defend themselves and while they are in that state, an evil person can do anything they want to do to them. This aberration of the ego can be termed "sick" because the perverted ego will inflict pain and suffering in order to experience the joy and thrill of being in total control. A healthy ego will not do that. A healthy ego is self sufficient, peaceful, joyful in its natural state, and it has a desire to help and serve others. A healthy ego does not have a desire to dominate and it will not purposefully inflict pain and suffering. The concept of ego domination has been practiced throughout human history but it has not necessarily been fully understood by the practitioners. However, in the 20th century the Nazi's not only fully understood the concept, but they were the scientists of evil. They perfected the science of terror for the first time in history. "Blitzkrieg" is the term for warfare that terrorizes without warning, completely surprising the victims and totally incapacitating them by knocking them out before they have a chance to understand what is happening to them. Torture on a mass level is the method for keeping a population in a state of terror. This is the sick psychology of evil. In religious or spiritual terms, evil is an aberration of the soul. The soul can be defined as that which was created in the image of God so it is naturally peaceful, loving, happy and eternal. Let us assume that God gave his/her children the gift of free will. Let us also assume that in the beginning, there was a soul named Lucifer who was an angel. In response to the gift of free will, all the other angels exclaimed, "Thank you very much, God, how beautiful your gift is!" Their response was not surprising because the angels were simply reacting in accordance with their true nature. Lucifer retorted, "Really. I can do anything I want to do now? OK, fine. I want to be God." Lucifer's vanity was the aberration. Not particularly liking Lucifer's retort, God banished Lucifer from heaven. Lucifer's reaction to being banished from The Fun House was to dedicate his existence to wreaking as much havoc as possible. God was caught in his/her own trap because free will precludes interference. But I have to assume that God has a vastly superior intellect and undoubtedly foresaw this possible outcome. Almost all believers think there is a Master Plan. If there is one, it follows logically that evil is a part of the plan because otherwise the Almighty would have put a stop to it immediately. Anybody who has a basic grasp on the reality of human existence knows that it's not possible to manifest everything we want and desire by applying our free will, concentrating our minds, working hard to get what we want, or even through the power of prayer. There is a will in our universe that is infinitely stronger than our free will. If our will and desire happens to be in sync with the infinite will, then we can manifest our desire. If our will and desire is not in sync with the infinite will, we can try, try, and try again ad infinitum and nothing will happen except that we will frustrate ourselves. Someone once said, "When the Karmic Door is shut, even if you have the right key, the lock won't turn." For example, all my life I've had an overpowering desire to be rich and famous. Say what you want about me, but there's no question that I have a powerful will, a powerful mind, and I'm a high energy person who pursues his dreams with great vigor (oh thank you, JFK). Now witness the fact that I'm still destitute and completely unknown! Individual free will tends to have very limited power. On the other hand, mass free will can be defined as what occurs when many millions of individuals unite in basic agreement behind a common purpose and mass free will tends to be unstoppable. I believe that when masses of people unite behind a good purpose, the universe smiles and says "Go!" Now consider what has occurred as a result of the aberrant free will unleashed by the dictators of the 20th century. World War II is believed to have been necessary in order to stop Hitler once and for all. But there was a moment in time when the expenditure of millions of American lives would not have been necessary. Winston Churchill knew when that window of opportunity had opened up but he was unable to muster the forces of resistance in time. America was isolationist and England could not do the job alone because Nazi Germany had become too powerful by the time Churchill had achieved political control of England. We have seen many atrocious people ascend to power in various countries. A few examples are Stalin in Russia, Pol Pot in Cambodia, and Idi Amin in Uganda. The list of atrocious dictators is a long one but I'd like to focus on Saddam Hussein because he is our creation in the sense that we trained him, armed him, and even supported him against his enemies in the mistaken belief that he would remain "our boy". By the time our government understood that big mistake, it was too late and we have paid dearly for our government's mistake. The invoice for our cost is still mounting and our soldiers are still dying in a foreign land. There is an answer to the problem of stopping evil on Earth from getting out of control, and the answer does NOT involve having America police the world. Why should the American people pay the cost for having a world police force? The cost of our military might is in the trillions and the debt affects our daily lives by increasing our cost of living dramatically. The reality is that evil must be resisted and overcome the very moment it first manifests itself, before its power grows and becomes unmanageable. But the responsibility for dealing with planetary evil should not rest on the United States alone. An emasculated body already exists whose proper job it should have been to assume that responsibility. I'm talking about the United Nations and I'm suggesting the creation of a United Nations Rapid Strike Force which should possess the best weapons, technology and training possible. It's not too late to re invest the United Nations with the power, the authority, and the freedom to act without being stopped in the Security Council by one major power and I'm suggesting that the United Nations Charter be revised to give it the power to act on the basis of majority rule in the General Assembly. A majority vote in the General Assembly is the truly democratic method of reaching an appropriate decision to send in the Rapid Strike Force. Consider how many lives have been lost in the 20th century wars against evil governments that expanded their destructive power outside their own borders. We must understand that somebody needs to stop these governments whenever they wreak havoc on their own people, not only because terror is WRONG, but also because massive governmental cruelty is the warning sign that an evil government is in the process of expanding its power. We should not wait until a country like Iraq becomes dangerous outside its borders. By the time that happens, a war (legal or undeclared) is necessary and too many lives are lost. It's no longer practical for us to believe that individual countries have an inherent right to do anything they want to do within their own borders. Even the smallest atrocious government can endanger the world if they are able to develop nuclear weapons. They can even buy or steal nuclear bombs. I believe that whenever terror and torture become methods of governing, the concept of territorial autonomy needs to be abrogated if not in the name of human rights, then it should be done for our own protection. A United Nations Rapid Strike Force is the answer because the window of opportunity to eliminate an atrocious government without excessive expenditure of lives occurs during the beginning of the government's expansion of power, and that window is only open for a short period of time. The idea is to blitzkrieg evil before it gets a chance to blitzkrieg us. Of course I realize that America would have to release some of its power and accept the possibility that a decision could be implemented with which America would not agree. But that would be a small price to pay in order to save thousands or even millions of American lives. That would also be a small price to pay to get out from under the crushing debt that has been and is being incurred for maintaining the gigantic military force that Americans believe is justified in order protect ourselves and to police the world. I believe that it is the responsibility of the world to police itself. If you've gotten this far in your reading and you agree that my idea has merit, please write to your representative in Congress. That would make me feel much better about being destitute and completely unknown.

    Email Marketing Mistakes

     

    Email Marketing Mistakes Many business owners who opt to try email marketing make the mistake of believing any type of email marketing is beneficial. This is simply not true; there are a number of mistakes business owners can make when they organize an email marketing campaign. Examples of these types of mistakes may include allowing promotional materials to be tagged as spam, not following up with promotional emails, not being prepared for an influx of customers after an email marketing effort and not marketing specifically to the target audience. We will begin our discussion on email marketing mistakes with spam. Spam is a problem which is reaching endemic proportions. Each day Internet users are bombarded with spam from around the world. This may include a host of unsolicited emails which are promoting products or services the recipients may or may not be interested in purchasing. A critical mistake business owners can make in email marketing is to issue emails which are likely to be construed to be spam. This may result in the emails never reaching the recipient or the emails being deleted, without being read, by the recipient. Avoiding the potential of falling into the spam category is not very difficult. It basically involves ensuring your promotional emails contain more useful copy than blatant advertising. This will make it more likely for your emails to be taken seriously. Another email marketing mistake often made is failure to follow up on promotional emails. Sending out emails to interested parties can be very beneficial but it is even more beneficial to contact these email recipients by other methods such as mail or telephone to answer any questions they may have and offer any additional information they may require. This type of follow up can be much more effective than simply sending an email and allowing it to fall into the abyss of an overcrowded email inbox. Business owners may also run into the mistake of not preparing themselves for an influx of customers after an email marketing effort. The express purpose of email marketing is to generate increased interest in your products or services. Therefore it is critical for business owners to anticipate an increase in business and be prepared to accommodate this increased demand for products and services. This is important because potential customers who have to wait for products or services may seek out your competitors who are better prepared to provide them with products or services immediately. Finally a critical mistake made by business owners is to not tailor an email marketing campaign to their specific target audience. This can be a problem because it may result in the email marketing being less effective. Business owners typically make this mistake because they fall into the trap of believing that it is more important to reach a large audience than it is to reach a target audience. You may blindly send your email marketing materials to millions of recipients and only generate a few leads. However, you could send the same email marketing materials to a smaller group of only a thousand recipients who all have an interest in your products and services and will likely generate more leads from this smaller email distribution list. It is not only important to send your message to members of your target audience but to also tailor your message to suit this audience. Creating an email message which will appeal to a variety of individuals is not as important as creating a message which will appeal to members of your target audience. You will need an autoresponder system to market with email We reccomend . Automatic Responder. com for sending your email. PPPPP Word count 590

    Bridal Bouquet Activities

     

    Bridal Bouquet Activities When a bride orders her wedding bouquet, it might not seem that any "activities" will come from it other than as a thing for the bride to hold. But the bridal bouquet can be the source of many interesting activities and meaningful gestures. During there ceremony there are all kinds of possibilities. Certainly you can go traditional and have a flower for both the mother of the bride and mother of the groom. The moms, in particular, love this activity and guests usually appreciate it as well. But what if you turned that traditional gesture on its head and supplied flowers for both the mothers and the fathers? If the bride supplies flowers to both the men and women, there are a couple of ways to do this. What if dad's flower was enclosed in a verse that he will then get up and read at the ceremony? What if it was a flower to recognize the members of the family who have passed, and it gives dad an opportunity to recognize those family members? If the bride chooses not to have a unity candle, but wants some gesture like it, she can have her bridal bouquet designed by having several small bouquets put together. At an appropriate time during the ceremony, the bridal bouquet is "broken up" and various people might receive a share, such as the mothers and fathers of the bride and groom. Now, if the bride wants to hang onto her bridal bouquet during the wedding ceremony, but is willing to have some fun with it at the reception, there are a few options there as well. How about a dance involving the bridal bouquet? This is silly, but fun. The bridal bouquet is on display somewhere near the dance floor and guests must guess a flower that's in the bouquet before they can enter the dance floor. The first few guests might not have a problem as some flowers are obvious, like roses and tulips, but others might give people pause. Of course, this won't work if the bridal bouquet is all roses or some other single and obvious flower but for a traditional mixed bouquet, it can work well. For a naughty touch, the bride can hide her garter in the bridal bouquet and actually put it on her leg before the groom takes it off. Or she can have a couple of breakaway bouquets that are wrapped in garter belts, so hers doesn't get thrown, but instead the tiny bouquets with garter belts attached are thrown. When it comes time for the bride to throw her bouquet, there are several options. Some brides choose not to keep their bouquet and simply pluck one flower out of it before chucking the whole thing during the bridal bouquet toss. This is an alternative to having a special bouquet set aside for throwing, and there are others as well. Are there are a lot of single women coming to the wedding? Maybe one thrown bouquet won't be enough. Many brides these days are opting for something a little more fun. There are a few options, really. One popular option is to have the florist create several small bouquets and then bundle them to look like one bouquet. They are tied lightly with a ribbon. When it comes time for the bouquet toss, the bride unties the ribbon, and throws the "bouquet" which is actually several little bouquets. Several women will catch the bouquet, rather than just one.

    A Simple Sales Strategy Define What Selling Is

     

    How do you define selling? A lot of people think of selling as persuading/convincing people to buy things they may or may not want or need. To some, selling is all about closing a deal. Thinking of selling like this is not very empowering to you. Frankly, if you have this perspective on selling, it's no wonder if you hate it. I would too! So what perspective can you take about selling that will make it enjoyable, exciting and something you look forward to? Sounds like a bit of a tall order doesn't it? Read on. Hopefully by now, you have made the list of all the problems that you can solve for your target market. You're going to be surprised how long that list grows over time. So really, if you look at your list and you think about it, you are a master problem solver. What you're really doing is helping people. Correct? So try on this perspective about what selling is: Selling is helping people. Selling is serving. Selling is a process of identifying and solving people's problems. See, feel and know that selling is serving. This will cause a big shift for you. With this perspective, you will really become passionate about wanting to help people. Find this passion and let it shine through. It is your purpose, your moral obligation, to have as many sales conversations with people as you can so you can help as many people as possible. If you're not having these types of sales conversations, you are holding back the gift you have to offer the world. You owe it to people to be there for them with your expertise and wisdom. Next time you're talking to a potential client, think about how you can help them, how you can serve them. Forget about trying to sell them something. If what you have to offer does solve their problems, and you facilitate the conversation using the strategies we are covering, people will sell themselves and will subsequently buy from you. If you have a perspective on selling which is one of service and helping people, how do you think the people you're talking to will feel? Think about this: people hate to be sold. The minute they feel they're being sold, they often want to get away fast. Don't you? On the other hand, if they feel you are sincerely trying to help them solve their problems, they will relax and open up to you. If you have a perspective on selling which is one of service and helping people, how do you think you will feel? Does energized, excited, relaxed, and natural come to mind? This perspective is simple but powerful and very attract tive to clients. (c) 2005, Tessa Stowe, Sales Conversation.

    Cost Cutting Tips For The Small Business Owner

     

    One of the keys to running a successful small business or home office is learning to control costs. Even the smallest expenses can quickly add up and cut into profits, leaving you with a business that won't move forward. Many small business owners know where their money comes from, but are not as clear on where it goes. This can have a significant impact on their businesses' cash flow. It's important to review your expenses regularly every quarter if possible so you can accurately manage your outgoing expenditures and look for ways to save. Demos Parneros, president of U. S. stores at Staples Inc., provides the following suggestions to save your business money. * Buy last year's model. Furniture, computers, PDAs there is always something new. This also means that there is always something old. If you wait until the end of the year or for sales throughout the year, you can save on your office needs. * Buy in bulk and buy ahead. By buying commonly used items in large quantities, you can save a lot. Replenish your supplies before you run out. Thinking ahead, and thus buying ahead, gives you a chance to comparison shop and take advantage of sales. * Buy products that save money. Consider quality alternatives to national brands. Staples ink and toner products, for example, offer consumers quality products at a 15 percent to 20 percent cost savings per cartridge. * Take advantage of discounts. Professional and trade associations often offer their members discounts on insurance, travel, shipping and other common expenses. Similarly, some credit cards, like the American Express Corporate Card for Small Business, may get you discounts as well. * Save on mail costs. Mail costs for your business can add up fast. To save money, use postcards or consolidate shipping. You also can buy or lease a postage meter or get a mail scale to eliminate overpaying.

    3 Ways To Create A Steady Cash Stream While You Work From Home

     

    Working from home was once merely a dream for most people. Until the onslaught of the Internet and home PCs, it simply wasn't feasible for companies to hire employees to work from home. And starting a small business took special know how, a large initial investment, and a lot of advertising and marketing. But now, working from home is a reality for thousands of people, and you too can realize this dream. The first goal for your home business should be to find ways to create steady cash flow. You'll need cash flow to operate and promote your home business, and to secure a lucrative income for yourself. There are many different ways to create a cash stream for your home business. Here are three ideas to get you started. 1. Buy a Pre Existing Profitable Business One way to create an immediate cash flow is to buy a pre existing home business that is already making a profit. Of course, you will not enjoy a profit immediately because you must invest initially. But once you are able to recover from the initial investment, you can continue receiving profits year after year. The key benefit of buying a pre existing work from home business is you will gain knowledge from the previous owner about what works for the business and what doesn't work. The main disadvantage is you will have to follow in the footsteps of another instead of building your own home business from the ground up. There's a great sense of pride when you can truly call a business "your own!" 2. Follow a Profitable Business Model Another way to create a cash stream for your work from home business is to follow the profitable business model of another. You can learn a lot from others who have already been successful with a home business. Many long time entrepreneurs are creating e books and global networks to help new home business owners become a success. They are revealing little known secrets about work from home businesses that would likely take you years to discover on your own. Look for entrepreneurs who have owned work from home businesses in a field that interests you. Use their ideas and examples to create a profitable business model for your new home business. 3. Internet and Network Marketing A third way to create a cash stream of income is to utilize the Internet and network marketing to your advantage. Find and join a team of individuals who have similar goals and work with them to build a successful online business. With the Internet and network marketing, many are realizing their financial goals faster than they ever imagined. Network marketing online can be accomplished through email and a website while working from home, and it can bring more people together with similar goals in a very short period of time. Many global network companies will promote your online business for you and take every initiative to help you become a success. There are even global resorts networks that enable you to travel to exotic places while earning a substantial income. Whatever method you choose to create a cash stream as you work from home, set some goals for your business and start realizing your dreams today!

    43 Private Vs. Public Reporting

     

    43 What's the difference between private and public company reporting A public corporation is a business whose securities are traded on the public stock exchanges, such as the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq. A private company is held solely by its owners and is not traded publicly. When the shareholders of a private business receive the periodical financial reports, they are entitled to assume that the company's financial statements and footnotes are prepared in accordance with GAAP. Otherwise the president of chief officer of the business should clearly warn the shareholders that GAAP have not been followed in one or more respects. The content of a private business's annual financial report is often minimal. It includes the three primary financial statements the balance sheet, income statement and statement of cash flows. There's generally no letter from the chief executive, no photographs, no charts. In contrast, the annual report of a publicly traded company has more bells and whistles to it. There are also more requirements for reporting. These include the management discussion and analysis (MD&A) section that presents the top managers' interpretation and analysis of the business's profit performance and other important financial developments over the year. Another section required for public companies is the earnings per share (EPS). This is the only ratio that a public business is required to report, although most public companies report a few others as well. A three year comparative income statement is also required. Many publicly owned businesses make their required filings with the SEC, but they present very different annual financial reports to their stockholders. A large number of public companies include only condensed financial information rather than comprehensive financial statements. They will generally refer the reader to a more detailed SEC financial report for more specifics.
