Self Improvement

self improvement question by snake_plissken8: Where is a website that I find judgmental people that very critical and are good for self-improvement?
I am looking for a website full of judgmental people that tear you apart and criticize you. The purpose of doing is that I need people like this so I can start a massive self-improvement project and needs lot of people to be critical of my lifestyle and how I do things. Through these people criticism and name-calling, I will find the tips that I need to improve my life and grow as human beings. This is very similar to confrontational thearpy in psychology.

Business Q&A: How does someone go about marketing a product they have created or thought up?

Product Marketing

Product Marketing question by dat_boy_lalo: How does someone go about marketing a product they have created or thought up?
How would someone in the state of texas go about marketing a product they recently thought up… I’m looking to either sell the idea, or market it myself and make cash off of it. Would I have to get a liscense for that? Please help!

Product Marketing best answer:

Answer by flingebunt
The real problem for people with ideas is that they are not really sales people.

There are 2 ways. 1. Cooperate with an entrepenuer to do the selling. Generally I have found this unsucessful, as they often talk big and do nothing. Then ask you to do the marketing and sales. But when I have worked with the right person the level of success if very high.

2. Sell it yourself. The problem is that if you are selling your idea, you are not spending time developing it. But it can be the best way if you have the right motivation.

The actual marketing process is pretty complicated, so it depends on the product and the market.

For example, if you invented a better car headlight, you could sell it direclty, but I would go to car manufacturers and sell the idea to them.

But if you have a product that is easy to manafucter and distribute then you can make a lot more money doing it yourself. But to do that you need money. You can get a bank loan, take out a second mortage on your home, or go to a venture capital company. Or more likely you will find some investors or business partners.

Business Q&A: Business tax question: Do I pay taxes for work done for an overseas company?

Business Tax

business tax question by Capt Kirk: Business tax question: Do I pay taxes for work done for an overseas company?
I’m a one-person consulting company in the US. I performed consulting work for a company in Germany, all done remotely. They direct deposited to my business bank account in the US once the work was completed. Do I pay federal taxes on that income? I assume yes, but is it treated any different from if that company was in the US?

Also, how in the heck do I figure out the amount of federal tax on my income? The FICA, etc., etc.? I have the IRS booklet on it, but I can’t figure it out. Thank you!

Business Q&A: Is revenue going back to start/buy another business tax deductible?

Business Tax

business tax question by YES MAN: Is revenue going back to start/buy another business tax deductible?
say i have a 100k revenue from my current biz for the year. can i use part of the money, like 30k to start another business, or buy another business, and called it as expense and is it tax deductible?

is that how the rich get richer? by continuing starting biz and increase revenue and decrease taxable income?
or can i create a new business name and put two businesses under it? so i can claim two different biz expense as one?

business tax best answer:

Answer by beached42
The $ 30K would be used for the purchase of stock for the next company. Equity contribution is just that equity contribution–it is not deductible by the current biz (unless it was paid as a salary to a principal who then invests it in the new company) and it is not tax deductible.

The rich get richer by investing their money in places when it will continue to grow–with the thought that the riskier the investment the greater the return.

There are many ways to structure your new business. If you have a corporation already, your can set up your new venture as a division of the already formed corporation. If you want the two to be separate, you can create another corporation and have the first corporation own the second. If you want the two to be separate, you, as the sole stockholder, of the first can set up a second corporation and you can own all of the stock.

Perhaps your best place to start is at a good CPA’s who can further give you the pros and cons of each structure. Good luck in your new venture

Business Q&A: What do marketing jobs pay if u have a masters marketing degree and ur experience is running a small business?

Marketing

marketing question by : What do marketing jobs pay if u have a masters marketing degree and ur experience is running a small business?
the business is marketing related and has been in operation for about 11 years. i’m now making a transition to work for a big company in marketing and i’m doing that by getting my master’s in marketing from NYU. just wondering what i can expect after graduating as far as salary and job placement/position?

marketing best answer:

Answer by Pat
A master’s degree in marketing and some experience running a small business would mean you should have plenty of experience under your belt. In this case, in terms of marketing opportunities at large and profitable companies, a person with your background should at the very least be a marketing manager. Marketing managers are typically roles that require a minimum of five years of industry experience and often require MBA’s or other advanced degrees. Depending on the industry, a marketing manager of your experience level should expect anywhere between 90K – 140K per year.

Marketing as a field provides a very wide range of salaries. Entry level positions in marketing can pay anywhere between 30K-80K, and that range doesn’t get any easier as you climb up. The reason is that for any given position in marketing, the rule is simple: if you’re really good and you can prove that you are, you’ll get offered the maximum. Most people don’t, and that’s why there’s such a range.

Be prepared to fully and effectively market yourself upon graduating. Know how to articulate your unique value to the employer and communicate the attributes that set you apart from the other applicants. I’d say your small business background is a good start in terms of differentiating yourself.
