Many individuals are looking for unique ways to build their incomes and survive in this dismal economy. Are you one of these people? If so, you can easily grow your wealth by mastering your taxes. It may sound a little far fetched. However, several people make more money each year by properly understanding their taxes.
Don’t Pay More Than Necessary
For starters, no one should pay more taxes than necessary. Many people pay more than they should because they claim too little on their W-4s. Perhaps you did this. You claimed “1” like the majority of people in America. However, you could probably justify a higher number. It’s important to take with an irs tax lien to determine how high you can claim. You don’t want to overdo it with this number. If you claim too high, you could end up paying more at the end of the year. Also, keep in mind that if you under claim, you should get it back at the end of the year – but you might not get as much as you would up front.
Hire A Good Accountant
Next, consider hiring a good accountant to help you. A good accountant can save you money. They will also qualify you for returns on your taxes that you might not be aware of. It’s always better to let a professional help you. They know the tricks to getting the most for your pocket.
A Low Net Income
Finally, if you are in business, make sure to aim for a low net income. Many people think that their net income should be high so they look more profitable. In terms of your taxes and take home, this may not be the best idea. You are taxed on your net income. It might be better to buy the company new computers and decrease your net income. This way you have to pay fewer taxes. Plus, you are investing in something your company needs.
When it comes to accumulating more wealth, it’s always a good idea to master your taxes. The better you are with the taxes, the more money you should take home.
One of the best destinations for adventure travel in the world today is the island of Kauai, this destination is often preferred by the rich and bored over destinations like Bora Bora because, there are more rainforests, rough cliffs, waterfalls and natural wonders here than anywhere else in the world. Kauai is a great destination for rock climbing, hiking, fishing, surfing or anything that the adventurous at heart desires.
If you’ve never been to Puerto Rico before, what’s stopping you? This destination has some of the best surf in the world, excellent trials for hiking and a great rainforest that you will love spending days hiking in. Besides being an adventure playground, Puerto Rico also offers almost 300 acres of adventures in it’s secluded caves.
When people think of the Grand Canyon they typically think about the boring destination that’s portrayed in movies and television when it’s so much more. The Grand Canyon offers hundreds of great trails for hiking but most important of all, it offers adventure seekers unlimited adventure on the Colorado River. When you get to the river, you will need to hire an experienced river guide who will take you down the river on the rafting trip of your life.
One of the most photographed vacation destinations in the world is Key West Florida; here you will find lots of great places to stay, restaurants to enjoy fresh caught seafood and night clubs to hang out with friends but the real story doesn’t end with all of the typical vacation destinations, it only starts there because, when you come to Key West Florida, you will need to grab your diving gear since the real adventure is happening underneath the water thanks to the hundreds of ship wrecks that rest on the ocean floor just a few minutes from the coast. You can spend your day exploring these wrecks or you can enjoy some fishing since Key West is also a fisherman’s paradise. After you’ve finished your day out to sea you can come back to relax at your hotel or grab your bike and explore Key West on one of the many bike paths around the island.
Those who have dish have hundreds of channels to pick shows from. You have the basic shows you know from cable on top of all of the added shows dish has, which is almost overwhelming. You won’t have time to watch them all. But it is kind of fun to have the choice.
Wealthy Fictional and Reality Stars on TV
There are a lot of shows you’ll have access to. This makes you wonder who is the wealthiest character on some of the shows you watch. The wealthiest person depends on the shows you watch. The Stepford Wives. Seems like they have a lot of money. Some of the reality shows that you know about, but don’t care much for even if you are the same age as the reality stars. Think - the Kardashians. They have a lot of money, and unfortunately the money is for real. So you have on reason to despise them. But the oldest Kardashian kid (more like adult, she’s in her 30’s) seems like the more level-headed and less drama-prone of the 3 girls. You would have to be very aware of all of the tv shows to know what character or reality star earns the most. Make it or Break it seems to possibly have a wealthy character on it.
If you have watched an episode of Dancing with the Stars you know none of them are hurting for money. In fact they are networking just by being on the show. Many if not all of the celebrities on there get so much exposure. When one of the celebrities has not been on tv much, their career ignites after being on this show. Britain’s Got Talent, it is not the same set up, but it is exposure for a new artist. The celebrity judges are getting a cut and a half of pay.
American Idol – same thing. You become pretty well known after being on this show even if you only make a few rounds. It helps to make it at least two rounds past the initial phase (the part that isn’t seen on television).
You love to hate some of the wealthiest characters and reality stars on television. But at the same time it’s fun to get cooking tips, a little entertainment, fashion and hair ideas, tips for improving your home and so much more. And depending on the actor playing the part, our life is not in the tabloids like so many celebrities.
The crowd grows quiet. The player addresses the ball. A couple of back swings that stop centimeters short of making contact with the ball. The player adjusts his stance. A couple more faux back swings. Here it comes… Beautiful form… The club comes down and a resounding ping is heard as it makes contact with the ball. The little ball rises high in the air; up…up…up… Where the hell is the ball?!
A True Golf Aficionado’s Dream Come True
The Vail Golf Tournament is more likely to be replaced by the big screen TV, the beer and relaxation at its finest coupled with NFL Game Day in my house. But each to his own. I can appreciate a great golf tournament however. It’s those 7 seconds of sky where they tend to lose me. On the other hand, the putting is so nerve wracking that I practically tear my hair out trying to will that ball into the hole. And I stand to win absolutely nothing if it does perchance go in. Nonetheless, it is fun to watch people who truly know what they’re doing out there on the golf course.
Just Enough To Be Dangerous
That’s how much I know about golf… Just enough to yell at the guy for slicing it or hooking it (though I can never remember which way is which); and certainly enough to utter a resounding “OOOOOHH” when the ball loops around the edge of the hole without actually going in. I have to give the golfers a lot of credit. That would be the time when my patience would be at its very wit’s end and some putter would end up in someone’s head… Most likely, my caddy’s.
I probably get that from my mother. She was a huge fan of golf, right up until she had to putt.

It’s possible for certain CEOs to get a bad rap. A lot depends and how they got to where they are.
Unfortunately that’s the slogan for far too many CEOs of the world. They’re happy to sit back and enjoy their reputation of being not only a thief but a scoundrel.

None other than luxury island getaway creator Alex van Heeren.
If awards dictate the success of a business and its creator, then the Huka Retreats (a vision brought to its fruition by Alex van Heeren) have achieved the success sought after by so many. In a very short time this luxurious island getaway has compiled no less than 89 awards in areas such as: finest wines, most desirable travel destinations, accommodations with the most luxury and style; and by such established names as Harper’s, Forbes, the Michelangelo Award; as well as various fine wine institutions and well known travel magazines.
Making money is only part of the job of a CEO; doing it in such a way that allows and encourages others to enjoying the best that Mother Nature has to offer is the job of a CEO who we can all emulate.
