  • The New Tax Law and How it Affects You
    The New Tax Law and How it Affects You
    Rashida Motiwalla Recorded: Mar 13 2019 61 mins
    Wait! Before you fill out your tax returns, there are some things you need to know. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) passed in December 2017 is considered the most sweeping tax legislation since the Tax Reform Act of 1986. Major changes will affect individual and business tax filings this year – right now. Overall, the TCJA has reduced income tax rates for most individual tax brackets and corporations. Although the TCJA offers significant tax benefits it also eliminates or limits many tax breaks, and much of the tax relief is only temporary.

    Rashida will explain the changes that have been implemented for 2018 that will affect both business and individual tax filings.

    You will learn about:
    -Qualified Business Deduction for pass-through entities and sole proprietors and the new corporate tax rate
    -Changes in interest and entertainment expenses deductions
    -Changes in carrying forward business losses
    -Changes in business depreciation limits for auto and section 179 limitations
    -Changes to itemized deductions, child tax credit, the standard deduction, alimony, and kiddie tax rates

  • Why Are You Following Me? The Three Secrets to Being a “Viral” Leader
    Why Are You Following Me? The Three Secrets to Being a “Viral” Leader
    Jen Coken, Author, Coach, MC, Speaker/Trainer, Comedian Recorded: Jan 9 2019 55 mins
    The great leaders of our time make it look so easy. Perhaps they were born that way or perhaps they read the right books. Neither is the case. Great leadership isn’t innate, and it can’t be measured solely by the actions you take. Great leaders understand that human capital is the greatest resource they will ever have. If you want to be the kind of leader people naturally want to follow you must learn how to build a great relationship with yourself, so you can build great relationships with others.

    Strategies you will learn:
    •Deal with the Facts, Stop Telling Stories: Learn to identify and let go of the stories you tell yourself about yourself, and the stories you tell about others.

    •Say Everything, That Matters: When you see someone going in the wrong direction, learn how to assertively and respectfully approach them and say what everyone else is thinking.

    •Empower Those Around You: Empowerment starts by looking in another’s direction – that is where growth happens. When you are looking in the same direction you will see new opportunities to collaborate – and empowerment then becomes a “power-source” relationship.

    Hear about the road map you can follow and questions you can ask to be able to implement three strategies.

    Come to this webinar to learn these tools and put them to work right away!

    Creating a Cybersecurity Culture
    Heather Stratford, CEO of Stronger.tech Recorded: Apr 24 2018 45 mins

    - See where your organization is on the scale of creating a Strong Security Culture
