Joining Forces -- Hire A Veteran Today!

Good afternoon my lovelies! Happy Veterans day! Today's post is a tribute to the veterans that have served and are still serving our country today to keep my freedom free. For all of your sacrifices that you have made, I would like to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart! I can't imagine being separated from my family and seeing the things that you all have seen.

To all of my business owners, I would like to tell you a little bit about a white house initiative that started a few years ago that is working to ensure that all veterans, service members, and their families have the tools to be successful in life. This program is called the Joining Forces Initiative. In 2011, Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden came together to launch Joining Forces to rally around service members, veterans, and their families to focus on employment, education, and wellness opportunities. This program is dedicated to raising awareness for how these three major areas affect the nation's communities every day and are particularly focused on those that have served and are serving.

With the employment aspect, Joining Forces is looking to expand career development opportunities and employment for veterans and military spouses. It also looks to show off the skills, experience, and dedication of service members and create greater connections between the American public and the military.

In the education aspect, the initiative is focused on promoting expanded education opportunities that increase job training opportunities and ease the transferability for military-connected students.

Lastly, the wellness aspect calls  attention to the critical issues facing veterans and military families. It also is looking to expand access to wellness programs and expand resources for military spouses and families.

There are plenty of ways to get involved in this initiative, and the first step is to explore the website and see how you can benefit a service member or veteran by going to http://www.whitehouse.gov/joiningforces. You can also support joining forces by adding a Joining Forces Button/Banner onto your website to bring more attention to this fantastic initiative to thank them for their service.

Thank you all for reading, and again thank you to those who put your lives on the line for mine. :) Have a great day!

MCA Compensation is AWESOME!

Good evening fellow bloggers! I hope you all have been having a wonderful weekend! Today I am going to talk to you about all of the different benefits of Motor Club of America and it's compensation plan.

For those of you who do not know, Motor Club of America (MCA) is a motor club that provides motorists different benefits such as emergency roadside assistance, travel assistance reimbursement, accidental death coverage, hospital benefits, stolen vehicle reward, and much much more! A trusted name since 1927, MCA benefits are available for motorists that reside in the US and Canada.

MCA is a very unique networking opportunity because it offers a very fathomable product that hundreds of thousands of people need and use daily. Have you ever gotten a flat tire and made dozens of calls to friends or family trying to get some help? With MCA, you can simply make one phone call and get all of the assistance you need. Unlike other motor clubs, MCA does not limit the number of times that you are able to use the service.

With a small investment of 19.95 per month, you are able to have the peace of mind while you are travelling! For those that would like to start their own business, MCA has one of the best compensation plans that I have seen as a network marketer anywhere out there. For each direct sale or recruit that is made you make $80. Imagine making 5 sales per week (that's only 1 per day!). That is equal to $400 per week that you are able to make on top of your regular income. Not only that, but anyone that you recruit will also earn you $6 commission per sale (which is called an override). Below is a charted example of the earning potential per month based on number of sales.

The more you sell, the higher your commission! After 10 sales, the commission structure changes slightly where you receive more compensation per sale, and the math gets a little more complicated, but I would be happy to explain that to you at a later time.

If you would like more information about MCA, please leave a comment or send me an email. You can also contact me via any of the social media methods attached to this post. :)

As always, I suggest that you do your own research when making a decision to start your own business. If you are interested in joining, shoot me an email and follow this link to sign up today!

As always, thank you for reading! Please share with your network, friends and family!

1099 v W2 -- Husband and Wife Business

Great afternoon everyone! Happy Halloween those that celebrate! I hope you all are having a fabulous day. Today I bring you another post for 1099 v W2 and will be featuring Husband and Wife business also known as joint ventures of married couples. This is important because the IRS has different specifications for those couples that are partners or that are employed by one another.

The Small Business and Work Opportunity Act of 2007 changed the treatment of qualified joint ventures of married couples not treated as partnerships. Instead of being treated as a partnership for Federal tax purposes, the couple's business is now treated as a joint venture. Couples qualify under this act if the only members of the venture are husband and wife, both spouses materially participate in the business, and both spouses decide to file under the joint venture. The business also can not be in the name of a state law entity (such as a corporation, limited partnership, or limited liability company) except in some community property states. An EIN (employer identification number) is not required for the qualified joint venture. If a spouse already as an EIN, you cannot use that EIN for the joint venture.

In laymen's terms, this means that the business is split between husband and wife -- income, gain, loss, and credit and applied depending on the investment of each separate party. With the separate list items (usually listed on a Schedule C for self-employment), each spouse gets credit for social security earnings on which retirement benefits are based. The more you have made and contributed to social security, the more you are able to receive in return from the government when you reach the age of benefits.

Once the election is made, it can only be revoked with the permission of the IRS. So as always, I recommend to do your due diligence and research what might be best for your company before committing to doing something new on your tax return. A great resource is directly through IRS.gov. There is some clarification on this page Election for Husband and Wife Unincorporated Businesses.

I hope you find this information helpful!
