The Fem Think Tank Affaire is coming! A Huge Announcement And You’re Included!

Fem Think Tank EventHello Lovelies!

It’s that time again – I’m officially planning the next Fem Think Tank affaire and I couldn’t be more excited!

For those of you that don’t know what the Fem Think Tank is, then let me quickly explain. In late 2017, I announced that Endlessly Elated’s core mission would be to empower ALL women. With this, came the Fem Think Tank, an event held once a year (at least for now) where women of all ages, places and backgrounds gather for an afternoon/evening of inspiration! As the saying goes, “United we stand, divided we fall!” or as I like to say it, “Girl power is real! “ Read More

endlessly elated hits the burbs: our kitchen renovation!

Hello Lovelies!

My second episode of Endlessly Elated Hits The Burbs is finally here! Today, we’re talking all things kitchen renovation. Between the demo (only to discover that we had no kitchen framing) and the design let’s just say we’ve had our hands full. With all that said, although stressful at times it’s also been extremely rewarding. Al and I feel so grateful that we are making this house into our home and we are able to embark on this journey of home owning (which is so nerve wrecking) together. Watch on for the second episode and as we tackle the kitchen reno!

Also, if there is anything that you want to see as part of this series, sound off on the comments below. I would love to get your feedback! Super exciting!


Until next time.

Four Business Deductions That Will Have Your Tax Bill Shrinking AWAY!

Turbo Tax Four business deductionsHello Lovelies!

As I mentioned a few weeks ago (see here), I’ve partnered up with TurboTax to further my mission of empowering ALL women. Whether you aspire to be an entrepreneur or are already on the entrepreneurship path, the road to finances can often be quite overwhelming. It is statistically proven that  women who are involved and in control of their finances tend to be more successful than those who are not.

So honestly, I couldn’t be more thankful to TurboTax who has provided their support in allowing me to enable more women to pursue their passions and tell fear to stick it where the sun don’t shine!

Now let’s get down to business! With tax season in full swing and given all the questions I constantly receive on managing my  business, I thought it would be beneficial to talk about four business deductions that will have your tax bill shrinking, just how we like it!

  1. Business Trips! Given that in the month of Feb/March I’m doing two business trips I thought it was only appropriate to tell you that you can deduct 100% of your business travel. Yes, 100%! Whether it’s transportation, lodging or meal expenses these can all be considered tax deductibles. So, get those receipts and make sure you claim them!
  2. Your Home office! You qualify as long as you (AND ONLY YOU) exclusively have a space (consider a room) that you regularly use for your business. Basically, as long as no personal activities happen in your home office and no one uses it, you should be able to make it a tax deductible.
  3. Ahh, the good ole’ car! Traveling to see clients? Getting in your car to get to a work meeting? Then, know that you can claim mileage, tolls and parking. My advice—get an E-Z pass just for your work related functions. This will sum up all toll expenditures. Then of course, don’t neglect to keep parking receipts and ensure to calculate your mileage!
  4. Retirement Plans! First and foremost, as entrepreneurs we are not an exception. We must plan for our retirement just like the corporate folks do via their 401Ks. Having a SEP (Self Employee Pension) allows you to lower your taxable income, making your contribution tax deductible. A win, win if you ask me!

I hope these four business deductions help you embark on your tax journey for the maximum return amount! Oh, and not to worry, if these don’t directly apply to you, one of the great things about TurboTax is that they will ask a series of questions to better understand your personal situation and find the deductions that are most relevant to you but if that weren’t enough TurboTax also provides the option to sit live with a CPA as a further resource. A complete win, win!

Until next time,

My TurboTax Partnership Lands You A CHANCE To Win Free Filing!

turbotax mobile
Hello Lovelies!

I am so so excited to announce my partnership with TurboTax!

As you all know, in late 2017 I launched my digital course “Becoming An Influencer” where I taught the importance of treating our blogs/YouTube channels like real businesses. I spent eight weeks discussing our rates, our P&Ls/ROIs (I still stand by my word; if you don’t know what these acronyms stand for, we must talk!) and ensuring our bottom lines were in the green! Not to mention, empowering all of us to take full control of our finances. After all, we are girl bosses! So, when TurboTax reached out it felt like the most logical next step. Of course, sorting out our finances means making sure our taxes are done properly! It’s an obvious no brainer.

Now, let me be honest. I’ve had an accountant (whom I love!) for many years. I had also never tried TurboTax and in true transparency was a bit apprehensive. So, I asked all my questions.

My call went a little something like this:

Me: “Sounds great, but my situation is a bit more complex. See, I’m married, had a full-time job, a business and so on. I can’t do this on my own. “

Andy (whom I can’t thank enough for his patience): First of all, yes you can! You can start by creating an account on or downloading the app on your phone for free and go through the simple steps. It works like an interview; you just answer simple questions about your life and TurboTax does the rest. It can’t get easier than that!!
Plus, you don’t pay until you are ready to file. If that weren’t enough reasons, now you can have access to the new TurboTax Live, where you are able to talk to a bilingual CPA or Enrolled Agent on your computer screen and they will walk you through the process, answer all of your tax questions from the comfort of your living room, and review your return before you file if you want.

I paraphrased Andy but you get the gist.

Me: “Wait, I basically get an accountant that will help me through the process and I’m able to do it from my home (In PJs with a glass of wine in hand! —I didn’t say that part but I sure thought about it. Ha-Ha).”

Andy: Yup!

So, then I did just that. I download the app on my phone, played with it numerous times (It’s actually super easy!) and (sorry, Dan! —that’s my accountant) I think this…I don’t need to trek to an office, still get to talk to a CPA and maximize my return definitely makes it worthwhile!

I’m telling you, if you haven’t already used it, you must try it. And I’m going to give you the perfect reason to do so!

Over the course of this campaign, I’ll be giving away four gift cards so that you get a chance at winning a free filing! Yup, your 2017 taxes are on TurboTax!

So, get ready because on Feb 5th, I’ll be posting on Instagram the first chance to win! I can’t wait and in the meantime, definitely download the app. I’m telling you it’s sooooo easy!

Until next time.

Hello Lovelies! After taking the month of in December, I am back, sharing a recap of all the amazing moments in 2017! It was truly a wonderful year, full of great memories and remarkable milestones.

In 2018, I Invite You To Take A Seat At My Table! Yup, You!

Take a Seat At My Table

2017 has been a year of blessings and to say that I’m grateful doesn’t even begin to describe it. I often think to myself, how lucky can I really be? Is it all just going to come crumbling down, one day? And although I don’t believe in luck and fear is something I struggle with every day, these things cross my mind more often than I’d like to admit. Read More
