Sure! Happy to! If you'll click on my signature logo, it'll take you to my website. I have a small tea business. These are premium, handcrafted teas. I sell the teas themselves, and incorporate them into gift boxes and baskets and tea collections. I love what I do!
I got started by spending an insane amount of hours working for someone else. (STUPID) I was the manager of a healthfood store. Don't get me wrong! I love all natural/organic healthy food. But, every week, I was spending hours and hours putting together orders to keep those shelves full. I would look at these catalogs and try to decided what I needed/wanted, what would sell, what our customers were requesting, etc. I realized at some point that there were thousands upon thousands of choices for every conceivable type of item (cereal, crackers, chips, etc.) I even said, out loud, I could fill this store with nothing but tea and I wouldn't even have scratched the surface. Then, the lightbulb went off! TEA. I love tea. Everyone loves tea. I could be working for myself and keep the money in my own pocket by just doing tea.
Bingo. A job is born.
As far as preparing for tax season, I just started a few months ago, so I haven't gone through a tax season yet. But, I'm keeping very accurate books (as best as I know how) and saving every single receipt. I'll hire a tax professional this tax season and learn all I can for next season. It's learn as you go when you work for yourself. I'll let you know how I come out.
Now for the big question: Would anybody like some tea? :-)!
