Asking For Myself: Tackling Taxes with CPA Jackie Meyer

As a small business owner/entrepreneur/blogger/freelancer, I have so many tax questions. (Like: In 2019, are receipts obsolete, or worth keeping? How long before bed should I stop looking at my phone to ensure the best sleep? And what language do I put into an agreement so that I earn money for each month a payment is outstanding?) 

These questions (and so many others) are why I launched my new Instagram Live series: #AskingForMyself. For the first-ever episode, I talked to tax expert Jackie Meyer to tackle some of these questions.

Thanks so much to everyone who tuned in and participated!

Filing Taxes with Credit Karma Tax

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Credit Karma. The opinions and text are all my own.

As a small business owner who works with dozens of brands each year, my taxes can be complicated. But they don't have to be... taxing. ;)

Credit Karma Tax lets you file right from the app, quickly and painlessly. You can take a picture of your W2 or upload it as a file so there's no need to fill in dozens of blanks, and it makes filing jointly easy (which I’m doing for the first time year)!

Head to my Instagram highlights to learn more about why I filed with Credit Karma this year (and shout out to WeWork for the great filming location)!

Do Year's Resolutions with Fiverr

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fiverr. The opinions and text are all my own.

Happy new year!

Many of you who have been following me for the last seven years have watched as I've built my business.

And if you've been paying attention, you know it's not always rainbows and butterflies. Building a brand on social media is hard work.

One of the companies that has helped me build my business and find great talent to hire is Fiverr.com.

A few weeks ago, the team at Fiverr came up with a campaign where they're asking us - their community - to share our Do Year's Resolutions.

You heard right - it's not a New Year's Resolution. It's a "Do" Year's Resolution... Something you're going to do in 2018 to take your business to the next level. Or move your career ahead.

So here are mine! (You can also check out my Do Year’s Resolution video here.)

In 2018, I want to work smarter, not harder. I want to strengthen my relationships with my clients and focus on quality instead of quantity. I want to be a better boss. I want to help more people - and I want to ask for help when I need it. And I want to give more back to my community.

Phew! That was a load off.

Now that I've told you my Do Year's Resolutions, I want to hear yours. Head to the Fiverr website to tell us what you're committing to doing for your business in 2018. You might even win a $500 Fiverr credit - which they're giving out weekly! 

Can't wait to see what you guys come up with... And shout-out to Fiverr for empowering all of us to take our businesses to the next level!

How WorkMarket Helps Me Work

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of WorkMarket. The opinions and text are all my own.

As a freelancer for the better part of a decade, I can attest: There are a lot of misconceptions about freelance work.

And I'm here to tell you: don't believe the hype. 

One of my favorite things about freelancing is being able to design my day around what I need to be doing - not around what everyone else is doing - and companies like WorkMarket make it that much easier.

Learn how I launched my business here, built my team of fellow freelancers here, and how WorkMarket helps me stay organized as an #OnDemandWorker here

Oh, and if you're considering starting your own freelance business, here's my number one piece of advice.

Small business, huge impact. 

Did you know small businesses employ 53% of the workforce?

On Nov. 25, I shopped small at some of my favorite boutiques, shops and bodegas with American Express and Sprint Business. Learn how Sprint Business champions small businesses here, and don't forget to think big and shop small!
