501(c)3 Now What?

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

I am so excited to announce we have our 501c3 now. Well, nothing is changing. We are still running programs, still helping youth, and still changing lives. Now, we can actually ask for help and people respond to our request. Having a 501(c)3 does not guarantee funding; it only qualifies you for the running. See, back in the 1990s you just needed a good cause you did not need to be tax exempt in order to receive donations. I was in pageants and we raised money all the time, but now without a 501c3 tax exempt status people are not interested in giving a donation because they usually do not get the exemption ability to write it off on their taxes.

I am encouraging you now more than ever to go after your dreams. There is nothing stopping us from being successful. I am so excited about this time in my life. I turn 40 in a few weeks, married 20 years in a few months, my oldest turns 21, by baby girl turns 16, and my twins turn 15. There is a lot of movement this year for me and I’m sure for you. Let’s get moving forward. Do not even think of the reasons you couldn’t or didn’t just do it!!! Don’t stop, cave in, or quit; just call me, and let’s move forward. I am. Come grow with me.

Will You Do W.I.T.?

Will You Do W.I.T.?

That’s the question I ask myself everyday. Will I do whatever it takes today? The answer is YES! I will always do whatever it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. It is so important to have positive self-talk. Happy New Year! It was a great year! We had four lunch and learns last December two sponsored by Paycor, one sponsored by BBVA Compass and one sponsored by Movement Mortgage. Each one was standing room only! I was so excited to be the host.

This is a prime example of always moving forward in business. Success does not happen on accident it happens on purpose. I focus on doing my best and I can honestly say God does do the rest. I hired and trained my staff on how to proceed with the business component I needed them to do, I inspected what I expected from each of them, and then we watched the results of the fruit of our labor by having full rooms and the lunch and learns were a success.

Please focus on your dreams this year and do not allow anything or anyone to talk you out or distract you from your vision. I am a prime example that no matter what the circumstance, you can always rise above. Please consider coming to one of our lunch and learns; it is free for our guests.

So what’s with all the changes? I’m glad you asked. Thanks for all the emails to coacht@iispire.com yes I still check. I may blog once a month, but I check my email everyday. I am constantly connecting in the community so I wanted a way to bring all the relationships together so for business networking we created the Business Alliance Group. In business there are different stages so I have memberships based on your business level. Some women only want to do business with women so since I am considered an “old soul” we created the Women of the Wise from a church I use to attend where all the Wise Women met once a month.  I loved the concept so I created my own wise women group.

Long time no talk my good friends. I have been so busy working to Inspire Greatness that I have not been blogging. I wanted to take the time to drop you a line about our upcoming lunch and learn with Paycor. Paycor is a company that specializes in payroll and human resource services. They offer payroll services for Bank of Texas along with many other organizations, businesses, and fortune 100 companies. I met them while I was on assignment with Collin College in Fort Worth, Texas several months ago. We decided to host a lunch and learn to teach our Clients about the services they offer along with introducing our Business Alliance Group. The Business Alliance Group is an opportunity for business owners, non-profit organizations, and potential entrepreneurs to meet vendors, bankers, and network to increase business knowledge. The lunch and learn serves two purposes; one to educate, two to connect. I am so excited to have the opportunity to do so.

dcThey will learn: New Programs Available in Payroll & HR Processing, Best Practices for W2 Wage Earners & 1099 Vendors, Small Business Loans Available for Start-Ups, Rules & Regulations Regarding Employees, Business Alliance Group IntroductionAttendees will be asked to bring a toy valued at $10 to be donated to Dominique Cares 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization assisting special needs children by creating awareness and resources to empower success.

New Year New You

People often make new year’s resolutions, my phone and inboxes on social media began filling with people who need a life coach to make some new life changes because it’s the new year. I welcome it and it’s great let’s just be sure we are ready to commit to the changes we are willing to say we will make. 

Coming from a background of working in fitness in my twenties, I remember memberships skyrocketing in the beginning of the year, then dropping off at the end of the year. This can often be what it’s like in life. You are gong ho one minute to conquer the world, the next burned out and sitting down planning the next move.
