Hey friends! I recently penned (or I guess I should say typed...:) a piece for Score.org that I thought would be helpful to many of you small business owners, many of whom might be considering electing S-Corp status for your own business.

I've noticed in working with entrepreneurs that there is a lot of confusion and questions surrounding S-Corp status and what it is. Many think that it is another business entity (along with incorporation, or forming an LLC), when in reality it is a tax designation granted by the IRS. There is also a part 1 to this post, and if you have any questions at all or are considering electing S-Corp status for your own business, take a look!

Verrrrry interesting.
 
Between 2009 and 2011, Shane Bauer spent nearly two years locked up in an Iranian prison as one of the jailed American hikers. Last year, he went back to jail—this time as an undercover journalist working as a guard at a private prison in Louisiana. In a stunning new exposé for Mother Jones, Bauer chronicles the four months he spent undercover last year as a guard at Louisiana’s Winn Correctional Facility. Winn is the oldest privately operated me...

WOHOOOOOOOOOOO! It's time for another round of "Know Your Stuff"....this time concerning... S-Corps! I know a lot of small business owners who confuse the S-Corp as a business entity....when really it is a tax designation.

I say when it comes to dealing with the IRS....it's best to know your stuff.

Try these tips to re-energize your day.
It's easy to be motivated when we're excited by a new venture but more rewarding when we remember why it is still worthwhile.

I think I'd look fantastic in this hat.
 
A SCIENTIST has claimed that humans may be more in touch with the Earth than we realise as he believes that we have a sixth sense that means we can detect Earth’s magnetic field.

Your choice to go with the flow or whine, complain and stress out could be the difference between success and failure.

Story
Tagline
Chief legal strategy officer and blogger of most things business, registered agent, nonprofit, and more
Introduction
I spent the early years of my life working at a locally owned sawmill and enjoyed living in the woods. My life experiences have crafted a unique real world perspective to the law and real world industries. The logging industry was effectively shut down from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); the mill closed, and the town basically died. NAFTA reinvented my career by paying for me to go to law school.

As the chief legal strategy officer, my role at Northwest guides our company and our clients through the vast bureaucracy we all deal with when running a business. I'm interested in helping people start and run successful businesses. I'm always learning and sharing. I have a special interest in nonprofits as well as registered agent services--have any questions? Ask away. 

I've recently begun authoring a blog housed on Northwest Registered Agent that covers a variety of topics concerning LLCs, incorporation, registered agents and registered agent services, nonprofits, and entrepreneurship. It's all about solid, quality information and absolutely no filler:
