5 Strategies That Will Help You Smile at Tax Time
Here in the US, tax day is around the corner…
Is it stressing you out?
I get it!
Back when I had a full-time job I’d receive a W-2 form showing the taxes that were automatically taken out of my paycheck.
So I really didn’t even think about it. The company deducted what I owed from my salary and filing my tax returns was easy.
Once I became a coach and business owner, dealing with taxes became a whole new ball game…
…And I’ve definitely experienced some big bumps in that road!

Why Swim with Sharks When You Can Swim with Dolphins?
There are three kinds of fish in the sea: Dolphins, Sharks and Tuna.
Dolphins are wonderful creatures: intelligent, happy, and playful. They communicate; they swim in schools. They’ve been known to ward off a shark attack and protect the other fish. They are fun-loving and beautiful, arcing in graceful leaps over the waves.
Sharks are eating machines. It’s not their fault; they were born that way. But their job is to eat you. If you find yourself in the water with a shark, put your shark fin on or get out of the water. It’s very difficult for a dolphin to act like a shark, and you’ll never be as good at it as a real shark, so I recommend getting out of the water.
Tuna fish are food. They don’t know that the blood in the water is their own. They think everything that happens to them is somebody else’s fault. They take no responsibility for their choices. It’s like there are three kinds of people: the people that make things happen, the people that watch things happen, and the people who say, “What happened?” (Those are the tuna.)
Sharks will steal your money and tuna will leech money from you. Real money is made when you have dolphins on your team.
