      How 5G will transform our ability to work from home

      Thanks to greatly improved internet connectivity and workforce applications, employees in an increasing number of professions can work just about anywhere they want—in their home, at a coffee shop, on a plane. And chances are they’re more productive and more engaged than they would be if they were in the office. They may even be planning to stay in their job longer because of their flexible work location. In 2017, Stanford economics professor Nicholas Bloom, in a TED Talk, went so far as to call work-from-home potentially as innovative as the driverless car.

      Strategies for Building a Successful Business

      Many successful businesses do a few simple things right. Here are three according to Entrepreneur Network partner Kate Volman. 

      1. Create a strategic plan. A strategic plan can help you recover from being overwhelmed and remember what your company is working for. 
      2. Invest in people. In order to get the most out of your workforce, you must make sure they are engaged and willing to work. Two ways to invest in people include encouraging your friends to read books and inviting them to training sessions. 
      3. Implement a coaching culture. This type of work environment is full of helpful feedback offered in a safe space.

      IRS sends second round of tax warnings to cryptocurrency investors

      Some cryptocurrency investors are receiving a new round of letters from the Internal Revenue Service telling them that their federal tax returns don’t match the information received from virtual currency exchanges, a new front in the agency’s burgeoning scrutiny of the industry.

      Successful Startups Have This One Thing in Common

      No matter how much you bring to the table, whether it’s money, experience or enthusiasm, there’s one lesson every entrepreneur has to learn sooner or later: You can’t do it alone. Visionaries like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk might be at the helm of some of the world’s most exciting companies, but Musk isn’t in the production plant assembling Teslas any more than Bezos is fulfilling shipments in an Amazon warehouse. The reality is that it takes a village to get a startup up and running, and while you’re well aware of the genius of your idea, the people around you probably aren’t.

      Fewer employers offering high-deductible plans as only option

       Fewer large, self-insured employers will offer a high-deductible health plan as the only employee insurance option next year, opting instead to give employees more choice when it comes to health coverage. For the second straight year, the percentage of large companies offering only a high-deductible health plan with an attached savings account is projected to decrease to a quarter of employers in 2020, down from 30% in 2019 and 39% in 2018, according to the National Business Group on Health's annual survey of employers' healthcare strategies and plan designs. That trend was first observed in last ...

      The most common tax problems for 2020

      With more freelancers than ever before, this also means more taxpayers will be required to pay quarterly estimated taxes for the 2019 tax year. Unfortunately, some people are not aware that they have to do this, or don’t know how and when to make their payments.A failure to pay quarterly estimated taxes does a couple of things. First off, it leaves the taxpayer with a massive tax bill come April. Secondly, it can actually trigger late fees and interest on top of the base tax figure.

      Study: Medicare For All Would Require Huge Tax Hikes On Middle Class

      Sen. Bernie Sanders’ recently released Medicare for All (M4A) plan would cost approximately $30–$40 trillion over the next decade.

      Love it: Practicing the art of appreciation

      We can train our brains to look for the positive, even in stressful situations. Start by identifying things that fill you with anger, bitterness, envy or judgment. Then find comparative things in your own life that bring you joy or fill you with pride and consider how you have been blessed. It may take a few tries, but even if you fail at first, don’t give up. Say thank you for the small things, and mean it.

      Bags stuffed with cash add to pressure for cannabis banking law

      Senator Jeff Merkley once shadowed a cannabis grower and dispenser as he tried to pay his state taxes. He stuffed a backpack with $70,000 in $20 bills and drove 50 miles — unguarded — with the bulging bag in the back seat. Once he arrived at the Oregon Department of Revenue, he went through multiple rounds of security to deposit his satchel in a room packed with guards looking after the millions of dollars pouring in from other cannabis companies.

      How Business Owners Can Lower Their Tax Bills Via Retirement Planning

      Are you a small business owner, a contractor or a freelancer—and in a high tax bracket? Well, why stay there? You can use retirement planning to lower your tax liability. The idea is to plug in a lot of money to retirement funds, allowing you to build your post-work future and also to whittle down your net income, and thus minimize what you owe the Internal Revenue Service. Not a lot of people know about this. More should. Let’s show this by way of an illustration.
