Relaxing Tax Returns

 

Relaxing Tax Returns

 

I am always looking for ways to feel good around money.

 

One of the surprising ways I have found is, yes I know, doing my tax return in April.

 

One of my clients turned up and she was so relaxed and calm.

 

I asked her “how come?” and she said “I have just done my tax return.” and I thought yes, I would like that feeling.

 

I have done my tax return in April ever since.

 

Now you could be one of the half a million people who wait until the very last day, 31st January, to do your return.

 

Or one of the 2000 people who do it on Christmas Day – not sure about that.

 

Personally, I like to get to the end of the tax year, gather everything together and do my figures.

 

Then start the new tax year fresh.

 

Not worrying I am going to find a receipt in 18 months’ time and trying to think ‘what on earth was that for?’.

 

Sometimes I pay at the same time, if it is a small amount.

 

Mostly I put a few reminders in my diary, not to spend the money at Christmas and to pay in the New Year.

 

Thank you for watching.

 

 


Intuition versus Logic in Business?

Intuition versus Logic in Business?

If you want to be wildly successful, in the business of your dreams, you do actually need both.

 

Intuition is motivation, inspiration, passion and it all sounds very exciting.

 

Logic is work-ability, day to day practicality but it also ensures you make money.

 

Not so exciting for many people!

 

In fact, we tend to go one way of the other.

 

If you do want to be wildly successful,

then focus your time and money on both intuition and logic.

Why Did You Start Your Business

 

Why did you start your business?

 

When you have been in business a while, you get asked that question a lot and you tend to have a short, pat answer, that you give to people.

But it can be worth considering because generally people are asking for 2 reasons.

 

Firstly to find out if what inspired you would inspire them, because they want to start a business.

 

Often they are just trying to find out more about you and your business.

To find out where you are coming from

 

To see whether there is a compatibility between them as a customer and you as a supplier.

 

If that is the case,

 

it can be worth incorporating it as part of your story in your about me or in your promotional literature. 

 

Maybe not in the original format but with some discussion with a friend or a partner, working out an inspiring explanation for customers.

 

But actually what I wanted to talk about today is the unrefined version, the raw version, the version that made you go

 

“I’m going to start a business” – that one.

 

So whether is was a career decision, to solve a problem, to make a difference.  Or out of desire, passion or just because?

 

It is worth capturing that feeling, the words, the decision.

 

So when you need motivation, inspiration or trying to make a business decision about which direction to go, having that held in your heart or on paper can be really useful.

 

It is worth bearing in that mind as your business progresses,

 

you might need to update and change it as you have solved that original problem.

but having something you are really passionate about or that moves you is worth hanging on to.

 

So let me ask you

Why did you start your business?
