Jun 23, 2009 What Small Business Owners Want from Obama

QUOTE: While many entrepreneurs give President Barack Obama credit for a policy initiative that dropped fees on U.S. Small Business Administration-backed loans and increased the agency's loan guarantees, they worry that the incentives are not working...."When a bank writes down a loan, money that would otherwise be available for loans must be used for the bank's capital reserve and can't be lent out."

Jun 27, 2007 Setting a Realistic Web-Use Policy: To keep employees from going overboard with personal Web surfing, issue a set of guidelines, then consider installing monitoring software (Smart Answers)

QUOTE: As work time and personal time have blurred at many highly competitive companies, employers often expect their employees to be available via cell phone or BlackBerry any time of the day or night. So it's only fair for them to allow their workers to use their computers to get certain personal things accomplished, much as they might sometimes take personal calls on the job.

QUOTE: This year's crop of tricks and traps are variations on cons dating back generations. The way to avoid all of them is to exercise common sense, do extensive research before entering into business with anyone, refuse to believe everything you read (or see on TV), and verify claims.

Mar 13, 2006 Put Yourself on the Payroll: When your startup begins to make money, you should pay yourself a regular salary -- or the IRS might want a word with you

QUOTE: Why are the tax agencies concerned about this practice? As the owner of an S-corp, you're running a "pass-through" entity and paying state and federal income tax on company profits (even if you do not pay yourself a salary) because you must report the company's revenues on your income tax return. However, by not paying yourself or other employees, you are escaping 15.3% in payroll taxes.
