The big myth around doing accounting for your business is that it has to be hard and confusing. Instead of giving all of your power away to your CPA, you should be partners with them.

Do you value your freedom? It seems like for so long, I took for granted our civil liberties. I ignored the politics game until I woke up to this reality. Have you heard of shadow banning before? The major social media platforms have been censoring the information we see for a while. They have a narrative they want you to see, and if your narrative is different, they manipulate what shows up on news feeds and search engines.
This is something our guest this week An0maly has experienced first hand. He talks about how this has affected his livelihood. This is not a one-off event; it is anyone that refuses to conform to the narrative pushed by the mainstream media.

What do you think of when you hear retirement? It can have negative connotations and/or lead to heart palpitations for many.
Instead, think of it as an exit strategy, which I think better describes moving on to your life's next adventure. The old paradigm of “retiring” is being retired itself in recent years to suit our evolving life architecture.
It is never too late to start planning for your future. Sixty-two is the new forty-two as we move forward from the industrial revolution when the quality of life and life expectancy was much lower. Your wealth is your health, which I am always saying!
