What Lenders Look For On Your Tax Returns

What Lenders Look For On Your Tax Returns

If you’re applying for a short-term loan with a repayment period of 18 months, the lender

will be much less interested in your tax return than in your bank statements and

deposits. The debt won’t be outstanding for all that long, so these lenders just want to

make sure that you’re pulling in enough revenue to cover your daily or weekly

Marketing Tips

Marketing can be compared to running a race.  It's better to do a little of it on a consistent basis than to do too much all at once.

Building Business "in the Cloud"

I’m sure you’ve heard about ‘the cloud.’ As far as technology is concerned, it’s a big deal and lots of people are talking about it. If you’re uncertain how it works, here’s a brief, albeit watered down, explanation:
Rather than relying on a local server, cloud computing provides professionals with access to a network of remote servers, hosted on the Internet, that enables them to store, manage, and process data.
While that may not sound like such a big deal, it means that you can access your data, including some software, from just about anywhere you want using your device of choice: desktop, laptop, tablet, SmartPhone.
