Technology and Web-Based Services

Sales at my specialty toy store are extremely seasonal, with the vast majority of revenue
coming in the last quarter of the year. Surviving until the holidays has long been a challenge.
What can I do to make the rest of the year less of a high-wire act?  Read more.....

Current City: Newtown Square, PA

Expert in Government Contracting and knowledgeable in how to start up a business.

 I am an award-winning manager of responses to Federal and State government Request for Proposals (RFP). I developed a repeatable process for producing proposals based on best practices and lessons learned. My deep understanding of RFPs is enhanced by my experience consulting with government agencies as they developed their RFPs and evaluated proposals from other contractors. I know what is necessary for a small business to register with the government, get set-aside certifications (e.g. 8a, woman owned business), how to communicate your business's capabilities, identify contract opportunities, know your competition and develop a winning proposal.

 I have counseled new businesses from when they were a startup to when they became a documented SCORE Success Story.  I have been fortunate to mentor four startup businesses that have become SCORE Success Stories.  I have experience in how a business can use SCORE resources to aid in a start-up environment.

Current City: Carmel, IN

After my fifth year of working in corporate America, it was time to move on. I started my own company and over a period of 17 years grew it to 350 employees with a worldwide marketing footprint. Financing came through an SBA guaranteed loan, an angel investment, and a venture capital invesment. Sold the Company to an international financial firm as part of its strategic initiative. I have started four companies; some were great successes and others were failures. I play off of these experiences, and suggest to people that I got grey so they won't have to.

Special tax law provisions may help taxpayers and businesses recover financially from the impact of a disaster, especially when the federal government declares their location to be a major disaster area. Depending on the circumstances, the IRS may grant additional time to file returns and pay taxes. Both individuals and businesses in a federally declared disaster area can get a faster refund by claiming losses related to the disaster on the tax return for the previous year, usually by filing an amended return.
 
The IRS also offers audio presentations on Planning for Disaster. These presentations discuss business continuity planning, insurance coverage, recording keeping and other tips to stay in business after a major disaster. 
 
Visit their Disaster Assistance and Emergency Relief for Individuals and Businesses section of the IRS site for more.
