Episode 886 - Communication During Your Separation or Divorce

9/25/2020
Over the last few weeks and days, I have received a lot of requests for marriage separation and divorce. My gut feeling is that since Covid came onto the scene, we were all locked down with our loved ones, husbands and wives, girlfriends and boyfriends, got on each others nerves. The communication process turned into bitching and words you probably wouldn't even say to your dog. The emails and notifications on marriage mediations has risen because of Covid. If you have a question on marriage...

Episode 884 - Twitter Censorship On Constitution Day

9/18/2020
This morning I turned on my Twitter account to check postings and found that I had been censored. They had shut down my account because of a response I had left on a posting. The posting was of a man in a wheelchair being verbally abused by another man on a hiking trail who thought the wheelchair should not be there. Rude evil comments to a man in a wheelchair. I defended the man in the wheel chair. I called the abuser a nancy boy and twitter decided to shut me down. Now they said I could...

Episode 883 - How Your Vote Affects Your Pocketbook

9/17/2020
In November you and I are going into the voting booth to chose a President. Remember the word "Confidence". Do you have confidence that the individual you will vote for will be good for your pocketbook? Does he understand the economy, our finances, and to build consumer confidence. Or will he create new taxes that will attack our personal and family finances, as well as our businesses. With no confidence the economy gets put on hold. It pauses, as it did during the Obama administration....

Episode 879 - Kamala Harris Has No Idea What Businesses Do!

9/8/2020
Kamala Harris was talking to a group of people this past weekend on Labor and business. Why would anyone listen to a politician who knows nothing about business and has been a government employee all their life. Business is trying to survive daily and politicians get a pay check no matter what happens. When we were shut down, our businesses closed, Kamala and Joe still got a paycheck.

9/1/2020
I was talking to a nice guy last week, starting a new business, wanted to have a 30 minute consult with me last week.

Communications has broken down and there was a concern as to how long the company could survive with this type of operation. I asked that they go into a mediation, a third party with experience in business, so...

Episode 876 - The Lie's Of A Non-Moderate Kamala Harris

8/15/2020
It is up to all of us who hold the right to vote to do due diligence on Kamala Harris. The Democrats have called in Hollywood to remake her, from being a far leftest to a moderate. The Problem with Ms. Harris is that Americans have already seen the person, her anti American stance from being an Attorney General in California to a Senator who only voted for far left bills. She has never been for the fairness of law but rather for the political law she wants to promote. I encourage all of you,...

Episode 875 - How Truthful or Ethical is Your Linkedin Account?

8/7/2020
I was attending a ethics class for accountants yesterday and the topic came up on how ethical are our linkedin accounts? So many people may have endorsed your skill levels - but are they right? Have they endorsed you in the wrong category and it may not even have any thing to do with your professional abilities. In my account people had endorsed me to be really good in sales - far far from any truth. I am the worse person at sales, or marketing. So I spent some time cleaning up my LinkedIn...

They have very little income and a great amount of expenses that give them a net operating loss to reduce their taxable income on the tax return. The question is, are they conducting real business or is it just a hobby? A Hobby pretending to be a business. Are you focused on creating a real business or just looking for a made up tax deduction?

Episode 872 - The Politics Of Our Personal Finances

8/5/2020
It is getting very close to the time to vote, our duty as Americans. However, we have to be very careful of the individuals we put into office and what their views on taxes and the financial success of Americans are really all about. Higher taxes = less jobs. Higher taxes = less money in Americans pockets, and the list goes on. If the candidate is pushing a political agenda - run.
