Member B.I.G. Tips
Selecting the Type of Entity for Your Business
Selecting the most advantageous type of entity for your new business, e.g., sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company, corporation (Sub S or C), etc. is a critical decision but often times given short shrift. The recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act creates opportunities but also pitfalls for the uninformed making it especially important to properly explore your options.Eric S. Glick

Self-care is essential to one's well-being. Consider giving priority to your own mental and physical needs in order to live a healthy and rewarding life. If time is an issue, try activities that require minimal time from your schedule such as: taking moments throughout the day to relax with deep breaths, journaling, taking a walk or practicing mindfulness.Brugmansia Counseling
Take Care of Yourself
Be a positive reflection of the best version of you by taking care of yourself from the inside and out.Linda Charter
There is no 2nd chance for a first impression. Make sure you follow thru with business connections or your first impression will be your last.Suzanne Levine

Planning is Key
Entrepreneurs. “They don’t plan to fail, they just fail to plan!” Be sure to visually, on paper, be able to see a clear path before taking the next steps to grow your business. Planning is key to any successful financial endeavor and must include “what if” scenarios should life throw you a curve ball and off your path.David Barash, Vice President/Financial Consultant
Strategic Wealth Consulting Group, Inc.
