    How To Get Better Freelance Jobs

    I Don't Like My Job and How I Survive It

    I Don't Like My Job and How I Survive It

    I am not sure I like my job. I think I used to like it... I think. Back when making my 30K a year meant something huge. That was ten years ago. I'm still here, making a tad more money, and just about every day I consider whether or not I like my job. I also consider how long I can ride on unemployment, how much I could make working at TJ Maxx or if I can make money doing what I actually like doing. Problem is I don't know what I like doing... besides sitting on my comfy sofa watching shit reality TV. Can I get paid for that?

    How to Craft a Killer Pitch Deck

    As an entrepreneur, nothing can seem more overwhelming than getting up in front of investors to pitch as you try to raise funds. And I’ll be honest, it’s going to be a massive part of what you do as a founder, especially in the early years. But, like any job you need the right tool (unless you're Thor, then you just need a hammer). Your pitch deck is going to be that tool. What goes in that pitch deck? Let's talk about it.

    The Form 1040 Tax Return: Claiming Your Adjustments, Exemptions, Deductions and Credits.

    The Form 1040 Tax Return: Claiming Your Adjustments, Exemptions, Deductions and Credits.

    The apparent complexity of tax laws is probably one of the main reasons why people, in general, might be turned off from trying to educate themselves concerning basic tax matters that would enable them to attempt doing their own taxes. But even if they choose not to do their taxes themselves, having basic tax knowledge would enable them to understand what their preparers are doing, and place them in a position to detect any possible errors.
