Self Made: NASE's Blog

Small Business Is All Around Us

Monday, August 18, 2014

My best guess is that you may not even believe me in this week’s blog post, but here it is.  I was on a plane from Los Angeles to Dallas today after a very long week.  I was actually answering an NASE TaxTalk question about S Corporations right on line with the help of American Airlines’ in-flight internet connection.  (Love technology, btw)

The lady sitting next to me was a graphics designer and owner of her own small business and noticed the NASE logo on the screen of my laptop.  We talked about her business and about taxes and about forming an LLC and it was very enjoyable.  Quickest flight I can remember in a long time. 

At first it sounds like a coincidence, me sitting next to a self-employed business owner, but keep in mind that there are 23 Million of us out there.  Roughly one out of every six tax returns filed in the U.S. includes a Schedule C.  So on my plane alone, each row of six people would include one self-employed business owner.   One in every row!  One out of every six people you run into everyday could be self-employed as well.  That’s one of the reasons I love what I do.
