The links above provide opinions and information of how to keep your resolutions. Here are five reasons to make them:
- Wealth Building - Because of favorable tax laws, entrepreneurs typically keep more of their money than wage earners.
- Tax Shelter - High income earners should consider whether a small business or home office can cut down on their tax bills.
- Security - If there is one thing the economic downturn should have taught us, it's that there is no such thing as job security. The only security is the ability to produce income independently.
- Lifestyle - Ever had to work on a major holiday or at a time that was personally painful for you? Would that have happened if your only boss was you?
- Legacy - No matter how far you climb up the ladder of another's company, you cannot pass your job on to your kids. They will still have to start from the bottom.
