  • Recently, I’ve been really questioning if it’s time for me to make my part time freelancing job into a serious career. I currently am a photographer for small events throughout the week but the work seems to be coming more regularly and it’s work that I enjoy. I’ve been taking the steps to make this into a viable business and want to make sure th…

  • Hi everyone, I want to start my own team and promote/sell wave. How can I start? I’m currently live in Sacramento, Ca. Wave is not in my community yet but I want to promote them with my own team.

  • Hi guys,

    I'm a young entrepreneur from the Caribbean Island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines (probably never heard of it... But it's there... It's even on Google maps :).)

    I have a tourism startup that's, well, essentially airbnb experiences for the Caribbean (airbnb experiences are EXTREMELY under represented or no…

There is enough meat in the three poi…

  • This was actually the catalyst for me starting my own business. The 2018 Telstra Small Business Intelligence report found that (in Australia) 62% of customers will stop considering a business if they can’t find information about it online. Also, in Australia, only 50% of small business actually have a website. So, if you're a small business wit…

  • In one of our latest posts on Bravely Go, From bored to boss, we profile four entrepreneurs like yourselves and share the stories of their transitions or pivots into the exciting and sometimes challenging world of small business ownership. This got me wondering: when did you make the decision to own your own business? Was there a moment you can…

  • With 3rd quarter payroll taxes approaching and sales taxes at the same time, how are you preparing your clients? For those that have businesses, are your payroll taxes automated where your taxes are automatically being filed and paid or are you preparing your statments in a file to send to your CPA or bookkeeper?

  • I was in attendance with the CPA Academy today and they had an amazing webinar regarding growing your practice and not being overwhelmed and underpriced. The content was amazing and I could not believe all that I had learned in a free webinar about how to conduct my business better. My key take aways were: Delegating tasks, creating goals as trime…

  • Late last year, I decided to get into making beef jerky. I love the stuff, didn't really know what I was doing but figured it'd be a good idea for a Christmas gift, so I bought an upsetting amount of beef and got to testing. The jerky was a hit, I continued playing around with the recipe and started selling at a local farmer's market a couple of w…

  • In Canada, self employed entrepreneurs can deduct a portion of their auto expenses used for business purposes. Gas, maintenance,license and interest on a car loan (as well as lease costs to a prescribed maximum) can be deducted in a section of the T2125 form. The formula is kilometres driven for business use/total kilometres driven in the year.…

  • Good afternoon folks! I recently came into some of extra disposable income and I figure it's more than time for me to upgrade my home office from a handful of mismatched IKEA furniture to something a little cozier (or at least, something that encourages productivity a bit more). I'm not sure if I want to pretty my home office or if I'd rather r…

  • This post is intended for Canadian entrepreneurs. Too many new entrepreneurs think that the very act of incorporating frees them of all liabilities. It does not relieve them of business liabilities to the CRA nor a bank with whom they have a business loan. Incorporation online is quite easy and far more affordable than incorporating through a l…

  • Are you able to see monthly financial statements? More importantly, do you understand them? Do you do any business planning? If so, is your business doing what you thought it would be doing when you created the plan this year? Is your cash position good? Are you up-to-date with your (Canadian) statutory remittances? I hope you have answer…

  • I hope so. I am not talking about a large and involved budget exercise but, answering a few basic questions: 1) Has my business volume increased? Stayed flat? Declined? Why ? 2) Did you have any new initiatives for the upcoming year? If so, how did they fare? 3) Is your business spinning any cash? The last question is essential. There is a d…

  • For most small businesses it is plain and simple -- boot-strapping. Cash in your RRSPs, max-out your credit cards and get as much free credit from suppliers as you can. Going to a bank is really out of the question for a start-up unless you have a lot of (real-property) net worth. The Canada Revenue Agency is a creditor for (too) many small busine…

  • I understand most folks who are in this community are all about the numbers, the dollars & cents, after all this is WAVE! I'm not a numbers person, not even close and thats why we use WAVE and have not one, but 2 amazing people that manage numbers for my company. I would be lost without them, they are truly the best in my books. Got me to t…

  • The proprietor who ends his/her proprietorship and rolls over assets and liabilities should be careful to add Goodwill on the new corporation's balance sheet. The Canada Revenue Agency will look for this when your accountant prepares an opening balance sheet for them - the T2Sch101. Goodwill should be reasonable. The shareholder/operator can …

  • I feel like every other article written for entrepreneurs is about sleep patterns and how to wake up earlier. With the sheer number of those articles floating around, I'm thinking, hey, maybe there's something there. I've always had some trouble with insomnia, and while it hasn't stopped me from doing anything, I'd love to know what you do to s…

In fact, it has much more to teach us than Avenger: Infinity War does. It's a fun article, I recommend giving it a read. It made me…

What are some blogs, podcasts, news sources, YouTube channels that you recommend? Either for business or otherwise, I'm curious. Books as well! I'm not following anything or anyone particularly ins…
