Do It Better!! – Daily Word January 31, 2012

| Leave a comment

Happy Tuesday my overachievers! Welcome to the last day of January but the first day of the rest of your life! Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to getting better! What makes life worth living is the ability everyday to do it better than you did yesterday. No matter how good or bad you have it, each moment that you have breathe in your body you can use it to improve on what you are doing! Life isn’t about doing just enough, life is about maximizing your full potential and taking advantage of all the unique gifts that you have in your possession. Caution to those who are complacent and are not actively working towards bettering themselves everyday! As Harold Wilson said “He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.” Be alive and be the usher of change!! You can do it as great as you can imagine! This is not only your right but also your obligation! Take it to the next level and never stop growing!

Believe Beyond Believing!! – Daily Word January 30, 2012

| Leave a comment

Happy Monday my distracted and disillusioned! Welcome to the start of a wonderful week! You may be taken aback by the greeting but let me explain….. As we begin this week I need you to take a vow that it will be the best week of your life! I need you to believe no matter what is your current circumstance that a miracle is going to happen! If you are doing good know that this week you are going to do better, If you are having challenges know that this is the week that everything turns around for you. The reason I need you to be distracted and disillusioned is because the world is doing a great job in making you believe in limitations! It has some of us believing that things are impossible… I need you to be distracted by what the world is trying to tell you! I need you to be disillusioned and really think that anything is possible… because it is!! Those who get to the next level in life are those who believe beyond believing!! I mean those who are so oblivious to what “Reality” is, that they do the impossible and conquer the improbable! I’m talking about those who don’t understand that no means no… I mean those who believe that no is just yes to a different question. The world thinks they’re crazy but they know otherwise! Believe in yourself and in your abilities and understand that the only thing that can stop you is you! Take your greatness!! Make all your dreams come true!! This week you will forget about your been-through and enjoy your break-through!! THE WORLD IS YOURS!! AGAIN……. NOTHING CAN STOP YOU!!!

Ask Ash Cash – Q: Why is Credit Important and How Can I take Control of It?

| Leave a comment

Dear Ash Cash: I just entered my second year of college and I really don’t understand the credit game. Why is it so important and how can I take control of it? -Jessica R. (Nashville, TN)

A: Nowadays you need credit for everything! To find an apartment, to rent a car, to open a bank account, even to get a job!! The problem is that some of us have not been properly trained to manage credit so we mess it up at such an early age and spend a very long time trying to get it right. Credit can be a gift or a curse! Assuming its now a curse lets talk about some ways to get it together. In order to get where you going you have to know where you are. The first step in fixing your credit is to Get Your Credit Report. Most states allow you to get a free credit report once a year by going to www.AnnualCreditReport.com. If you would like to know what your score is then you can purchase it from one of the three major credit bureaus, which are Equifax, Experian, or TransUnion. Secondly you need to review for discrepancies. In today’s age of technology where identity theft happens more often than not, it is imperative that you check your credit report for fraud or discrepancies at least twice a year. Make sure you are not paying for someone else’s bad habits. If you do happen to see something on your credit report that quite doesn’t belong there than you must notify the proper credit bureaus as soon as possible. By law they have 30 days from the date they receive your dispute to resolve it.. You also need to get rid of bad debt! If you know you may have issues paying a debt in the near future make sure you call your creditors first and set up some type of payment arrangement. They are always willing to negotiate debt because they rather get something than nothing. Also it is a great idea to start getting rid of the cards that you no longer use starting with the ones that have the least credit history. Creditors do not want to see too much credit outstanding. Lastly you must begin to build good credit by showing creditors that you are stable and can pay your bills on time. The way the credit games goes is that creditors give money to people they think don’t need it . With this in mine it is important to have low usage on your revolving credit accounts. As a simple rule of thump you should never go over 20% usage which equates to $20 for every $100 of credit.

Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to being ready!! Life will give you exactly what you ask for! Whatever you expect is what you will get!! If you are talented but don’t expect to win then you will not win! If you are the best but believe that something is standing in your way to success then you will not be successful!! You must be ready!! Not getting ready, not hoping to be ready but 100% ready to take your dreams for ransom! All of that “I need more time” is all excuses!! Your success is closer than you think! All of the “I’ll believe it when I see it” is nonsense…. You’ll see it once you believe it!!! The only thing that is holding you back is your own thinking! You are as successful as you prepare yourself to be! No one usually falls into success… Deep down inside they knew it was coming! They prepared for it and did everything in their power to bring it to life! Stop waiting on the sidelines and get in the game! The stage is yours, the tickets are sold out, and folks are waiting for the performance of their lives. Step up and do what you do!!! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING CAN STOP YOU!!!

Plant The Seed!! – Daily Word January 26, 2012

| Leave a comment

Great Morning my Great People! Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to planting seeds! If you ever surveyed truly successful people I guarantee that most of them would have a similar story. They will tell you that they knew what they wanted but how they got it just came. They will explain that most of their success was a result of having a desire, planting the seed and allow that seed to blossom. They will also say that they didn’t stop to watch the seed blossom nor did they stop planting! In order to gain any success in life you must be willing to plant seeds of success. It is impossible to teach what you don’t know, improbable to lead where you won’t go, and not likely to reap what you don’t sow. Life will give you back what you put into it! If you want abundance then begin to plant seeds of abundance! If you want happiness begin to plant seeds of happiness. The problem always lies in people wanting one thing but putting out the total opposite! Stop sabotaging yourself! The HOW is none of your business! Concentrate on what you want then do everything in your power to work towards it and I guarantee the HOW will reveal itself! You truly reap what you sow! Begin today sowing Greatness! The World is Yours and Nothing can Stop You!!

Do It Yourself!!! – Daily Word January 25, 2012 by ash-cash-1

Wonderful Wins-Day my Wise and Intellectual! Off the heels of the presidents State of the Union address Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to Doing things Yourself! I said this three years ago and I will say it again! President Barack Obama is only one man! Yes he is the leader of the free world and Yes as the leader he has a great responsibility of moving our economy forward but ultimately the onus is on you to change yourself and do the things that will help you move forward! Often times we are too reliant on a person, a system, a job, a relationship… You name it…. We tend to think that things are owed to us and that we must wait until they are given! If you want it then Take it!! If its yours then go get it!! Whatever you believe is possible is possible! Whatever roadblocks you foresee will be roadblocks! Understand that you are in control and you are the only person that you can rely on for sure! Give up your power if you will but don’t sit and complain when life is not exactly how you want it! Only you can make your life better! Begin today to put the actions in place that will give you everything you want! As Ghandi said “Be the Change that you want to see in the world.” I know that the dictionary says that change starts with C but in reality Change starts with you!!! (Haaaa!! Get it….. Ok…. Nevermind)

Ask Ash Cash – Q: How Do I Stay Out of Trouble With the IRS?

| Leave a comment

Dear Ash Cash:

I am currently self-employed and in the process of filing my taxes. I’ve noticed as of late a lot of people especially celebrities are getting in trouble with the IRS. What are some tips that you would give me as a self-employed person to maximize my taxes as well as stay out of trouble?
-William P (Fort Lauderdale, FL)

Hey William,

Thanks so much for your question. Once upon a time and not too long ago bad financial management use to only mean bad credit. Now not managing your finances can cause many issues including loss of employment, bankruptcy, foreclosure, and even jail! More specifically we’ve seen many celebrities fall victim to jail time for not paying their taxes. Ron Isley from the legendary R&B group the Isley Brothers spent 3 years in prison while Wesley Snipes begun his bid last year. Other celebrities in tax trouble include Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Obie Trice, Method Man, Eve, DMX, Nas, Swizz Beatz, Doug E. Fresh, Mos Def, Beanie Sigel, Wyclef, MC Hammer, Lil Kim, Big Boi, Fat Joe, D12, Young Buck, Trick Daddy and the list goes on. The main reason we are seeing more people fall into tax troubles is because new technology has made it easier for those who are self-employed to take their business matters into their own hands. While managing your own business matters may cut cost in the short run if you are not well versed it may cost you more than just money. Whether you work 9-5 and have a side hustle or you are a full-blown entrepreneur the following are tips that every self-employed person needs in order to keep themselves out of trouble with our dear old Uncle Sam.

1. Keep very good records: Most large companies rarely ever have issues with taxes because they hire accountants and financial officers to oversea most of their spending. Because you are a one-stop shop it is important that you keep good records and save all receipts so that you can support your deductions.

2. Use your deductions wisely: Again make sure that you are keeping your receipts for everything! Obviously you should deduct anything that is used to conduct your business such as business travel, office supplies, postage and shipping costs, dues, subscriptions, and anything else business-related. Don’t forget your office space; whether you have a separate office or use space in your home you are able to deduct either the rent you pay for your office space or a percentage of your rent or mortgage from your home relative to what you use for your business. You are also able to deduct child-care, phone bills, and utilities.

3. Defer income if necessary: Being self-employed gives you the flexibility as to how or when you pay yourself. If you notice that you are beginning to reach a higher tax bracket it is wise to hold off on paying yourself or adding income to your books.

4. Increase expenses if necessary: Just as you can choose to defer income, if you see that your income is high, you can make many more year-end business purchases to increase your deductions.

5. Get the right help: Not all tax experts are created equally. Make sure you ask for help from someone who has experience working with self-employed taxes!

6. File on time: The worst thing you can do is not report your taxes. Make sure you are filing your taxes on time and if for whatever reasons you need more time to file make sure you file an extension

If you want to live abundant, begin to walk, talk, and act abundant!! The size of your wallet or your worldly possessions does not dictate who you are!!

STOP BEING CENSORED!! – Daily Word January 18, 2012 by ash-cash-1

Happy Wins-Day my Outgoing and Outspoken! Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to not being silenced! For those who are not aware there are two proposed controversial anti-piracy bills that are being voted on today in congress called The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and its Senate companion, the Protect IP Act (PIPA). The bills would allow the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as copyright holders, to obtain court orders against websites that are accused of enabling or facilitating copyright infringement. Depending on who makes the request, the court order could stop online advertisers and payment facilitators from doing business with the alleged infringing website, search engines from linking to those sites, and requiring Internet service providers to block access to those sites as well. So what does that mean? It means that if this bill passes your right to surf the internet freely will be compromised! It means that the government and big corporations will control what you are able to see online similar to how they control television and other forms of media!! It means that this so called democracy that we live in will be less and less controlled by the people!! It means that your right to free speech or free expression is in jeopardy! Today as many protest these bills and try to stop congress from infringing on our rights, lets remember the right we have as individuals that we most often take advantage of! The right to free our mind!! The right to make decisions in our lives that will move us forward!! Lets remember that we must never be censored! Let’s stop accepting everything that is given to us as fact and do our own thinking! As Djimon Hounsou so eloquently said in Amistad….. “:Give us Free!!!” Freedom to think as we want! Freedom to do as we will!! Freedom to be as we see fit!! DO NOT BE CENSORED!!! THE WORLD IS YOURS!!!!

Make sure as you are on your road to greatness that you understand your worth and never compromise that value no matter what! Believe in the abundance of the world and know that you can get exactly what you want out of life if you believe that you can receive it! The only lack that exist is in the mind! Never compromise!!

You Are One in a Million!! – Daily Word January 16, 2012 by ash-cash-1

Happy Martin Luther King Day my Great People!! If you missed our special Birthday tribute to Dr. King please click here. Today We are celebrating the birthday of one of our other fallen family members. Aaliyah Dana Haughton born January 16, 1979 was a talented songwriter, performer, actress and lost her life tragically on August 25, 2001 in a plane crash. Even though Aaliyah is gone she will never be forgotten. Her accomplishments at such an early age were astonishing and she gave us inspiration. She told us that “if at first we don’t succeed, we must pick ourselves up and try again” as well as how much we were “one in a million.” In commemoration to her birthday we are dedicating today’s Daily Word to being One in A Million! In life you will be confronted with many situations where you don’t totally fit in. You will look around and feel like the odd one out. You will question yourself and wonder what is it about you that you don’t have that everyone else does…. That’s wrong!!! The question you should be asking yourself is what is it about you that everyone else doesn’t have!! Always remember that you are one in a million! No one on this planet can be you or do what you can do! You were put on this earth to do some extraordinary things and as long as you keep trying to be like everyone else you will never accomplish them! You were born to stand out!!! With that in mind except that fact that you will never fit it!! You were put here to be the best you that you can possibly be so never question or take that privilege for granted!! You are One in A Million!!! Stop waiting and Make your life Great!!!

Stop Stopping!! – Daily Word January 13, 2012 by ash-cash-1

TGI….Everyday!! Happy Friday the 13th!!! Welcome to the end of a wonderful week but still the beginning of the rest of your life! Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to keeping your momentum! There is only one thing that really separates great people from the mediocre… Its not talent, its not smarts, its not business savvy… It’s the ability to be consistent and the ability to keep going no matter what the circumstance! Those who are truly great do not concern themselves with adversity or obstacles because in their mind losing is not an option! They don’t make excuses… they just make things happen! They don’t care about failing because they know that failing is only failing when they give up….. and the truly great ones aren’t smart enough to even know what giving up is! Stop Stopping and Keep your momentum! Don’t allow yourself to be a victim of circumstance! You want what you want and should never stop until you get it! Get to the point of no return! Burn any bridge that is enabling you to give up so easy so that you remove that as an option! You deserve to be happy! You deserve everything your heart desires! The only thing standing in your way is YOU!! be persistent, take what you deserve and understand that nothing is impossible!! You can’t say sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon!!
