How a $9 E-Book Generated Over $1 Million In Sales earning Boris Musheyev The 2 Comma Club award from ClickFunnels

Queens, NY – November 5th, 2022 – Boris Musheyev Joins the 2 Comma Club. The 2 Comma Club is awarded by ClickFunnels to entrepreneurs that generate over $1 million in sales within a single sales funnel.

The funnel that won this award is for the S-Corp Tax Book. The S-Corp Tax Book picks up the slack that other accountants failed to teach so many small business owners and entrepreneurs – How to pay less in taxes using your S-Corporation legally.

This ebook was created to educate entrepreneurs on how the United States tax code is designed and how they can use it to their advantage. The ebook sells for $9 and inside are tax strategies, deductions, and benefits that any profitable business owner can use to save money on taxes.

Being given this award means more than just the dollar amount sold. It means that more entrepreneurs are choosing themselves and taking their taxes into their own hands.

“Our company’s mission is to provide a continuous tax planning approach to maximize savings while eliminating stress and anxiety around taxes.” – Boris Musheyev, CPA.

Boris and his firm have helped their clients save an est. $3.4 million in taxes in 2021, with an estimated average savings of $38,147 per business.

Boris is a CPA and one of the few certified tax strategists in the United States. He started his career as a tax preparer in 2005. Like all tax preparers, he put the right numbers in the right boxes and filed returns on time.

“If you have a tax preparer you do not have a tax planner” – Boris Musheyev, CPA

The tip of the iceberg was filing over 500 tax returns in three and a half months. He worked long hours and almost missed his son’s first birthday. He was burnt out and fed up that all of his clients were overpaying in taxes due to a lack of tax planning, but he was flooded with tax preparation and there wasn’t any time left for tax strategies.

He quit his job and started his own tax planning firm in October 2017.

Since then, Boris and his firm have helped other entrepreneurs understand how the tax code is designed to incentivize business owners to save money on taxes. He’s invested over $200,000 in personal growth and learning from the top tax planners in the United States.

Boris and his team work strategically around the tax code to create customized tax plans that are tailored to each individual’s situation. Just like no two snowflakes are the same, neither are two tax plans.

He believes that accounting is more than just being correct. It’s being strategic, proactive and maximizing tax savings via tax planning. He has one goal, and one goal only: to do everything in his power to debunk the tax code by educating other entrepreneurs about the power of tax planning.

The Four Biggest Cybersecurity Mistakes That Can Kill a Small Business

Small businesses and work at home entrepreneurs are being targeted by ransomware at an alarming rate and over 80% of businesses that pay a ransom will get attacked a second time. In fact, hackers, scammers and viruses are getting smarter every day and cybersecurity measures, to keep company information safe and secure, is one of the most overlooked investments small businesses skip and it can be a very expensive oversight.

Christopher Bartosz is a cybersecurity expert and the President and CEO of FVC Technologies that focuses on servicing small to mid-sized businesses across the nation as their outsourced IT department. His company provides not only IT management, but cybersecurity solutions that keep the company secure and he has identified four of the biggest mistakes small businesses make when it comes to cybersecurity.

#1 – Thinking a business is too small for an attack. No business is too small to be the target of a hacker including work at home entrepreneurs. According to Bartosz, “If you have a bank account, you’re at risk of a cyber attack. Fifty percent of small and mid-sized businesses have experienced at least one cyber attack in the past year.”

#2 – Not understanding most consumer anti-virus programs won’t protect them against all hackers. The typical anti-virus software, also known as anti-malware, is originally designed to prevent, detect, and eliminate malware and viruses. These programs usually run in the background to provide protection but with the explosion of other malware, antivirus software cannot always protect against the latest computer threats. Small business owners and work at home entrepreneurs think they’ve done everything they can to protect and make their laptop and computer systems secure when they are installed. However, according to a recent survey by Fortinet, 81% of small businesses report that new types of attacks have evaded their traditional security solutions including anti-virus software.

#3 – Thinking that IT and cybersecurity are the same thing or relying on a friend for IT Support. It’s great to have a friend who can be consulted for basic IT, or Information Technology, support, but one big mistake people make is thinking that IT and cybersecurity are the same thing. Bartosz says, “Basic IT support and cybersecurity are a completely different skill set. IT support can fix basic computer problems, but not necessarily close the holes hackers are trying to get in. Relying on a friend who knows ‘something about IT’ is just enough to be dangerous.”

#4 – Looking at IT security as an expense and not an investment. Small businesses and entrepreneurs think they’re protected with a consumer anti-virus program that costs around $70, but that is not always enough. In fact, according to Fundera, small and mid-sized businesses spend an average of $955,429 to restore normal business in the wake of successful attacks. Alarmingly, as many as 60% of companies go out of business six months after an attack.

Most small businesses are, unfortunately, vulnerable to cyber attacks, but there are preventative solutions to mitigate the risks. FVC Technologies takes a security first, not an ‘IT support’ first approach. According to Bartosz, “We provide a risk assessment that often reveals hidden doors for hackers to walk right on in and then show our clients this information so we can put together a plan to close and lock those doors.”

Bartosz also recommends investing in a professional and next generation endpoint protection program that scans in real time and catches vulnerabilities, “When we work with clients, we offer them an A.I. driven level of protection that is only available to IT professionals. Larger companies should expect to dedicate 7-10% of their IT budget for cybersecurity and smaller companies who do not have an IT budget should plan on spending 3% of their total budget on cybersecurity. It’s a form of insurance especially compared to the expense of a data breach or ransomware attack.”

Christopher Bartosz is the author of two books on cybersecurity including Why Your Business Must have Cybersecurity Risk Assessments and Cybersecurity Now and he provides education and security training to the companies he serves. He has extensive knowledge of multiple government regulations that he uses to ensure his clients who hold government contracts remain compliant and secure.

Innovative Chinese Takeaway JVDE PVRK Announces UK Relocation and Metaverse Project

Owners of Chinese takeaway JVDE PVRK, James Cheung and Debbie Hsu have announced the relocation of the business to the city of Birmingham. All business operations of the Chinese takeaway will hence be carried out from a new location in the West Midlands city. 

With a mindset that came out of social media, JVDE PVRK (pronounced Jade Park) combines elements of content creation, fashion, and food within the concept of their business. The company’s founders have a deep honor of Chinese tradition, but none the less, they are working hard to change an old traditional trade to a modern takeaway.

JVDE PVRK promises to continue serving customers with their savory Chinese food that tastes great every single time. Customers will still enjoy online ordering services with options of pick-up or delivery from the new location. The Chinese takeaway is also still available on UberEats and JustEat. 

JVDE PVRK was unfortunately forced to close down business operations in Wirral on the 9th of June 2022, as a result of complications with the lease of their now former building. This is the development that led to the previously mentioned decision by the founders, to relocate all business operations of the Chinese takeaway to a new location in the city of Birmingham. In addiction to this, they have also stated their plans to open more JVDE PVRK branches by 2023 to meet the growing demands of their classic Chinese takeaway. 

As a business that started during the challenging period of Covid-19, JVDE PVRK has grown to be well versed with challenges and sees this new one as an opportunity for a big and better comeback. 

Proving once more to be a pacesetter in the traditional Chinese takeaway business, JVDE PVRK has also announced that they’ll be expanding their takeaway services into the metaverse. With the rise of digital commerce, JVDE PVRK continues to break uncharted grounds in the Chinese takeaway trade by integrating current technologies into their services, taking their iconic golden box noodles into the virtual space to further meet the demands of their huge follower base (Instagram: @jvdepvrk @debbiehsu_bee / Twitter: @jvde_sauce @yummycrypoto. 

This innovative development by JVDE PVRK further aims to make their Chinese takeaway a more fun an unforgettable experience for their customers. Customers will not only enjoy delicious Chinese food, but also get a thrilling virtual world experience. The metaverse project will be an anime style NFT with similarities in aesthetics to the art posted on their social media. 

JVDE PVRK will also start accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment for food. This is yet another step by JVDE PVRK towards bridging the gap between the traditional Chinese takeaway business and innovative technology for businesses and cementing their place as pioneers in the long-established takeaway trade. As cryptocurrencies are becoming a more popular legal tender, JVDE PVRK is adding crypto payment to provide more options for their customers for ease of transactional service. They have partnered with QWYPTO a web3 team that specialises in crypto, NFTs and web3 to deliver their crypto and metaverse journey.

JVDE PVRK Chinese takeaway is committed to providing excellent and consistent service for their customers with all the aforementioned developments.

Businesswoman Latesha Isbell Howard advocates for economic equity for minority women-owned businesses

Businesswoman Latesha Isbell Howard advocates for economic equity for minority women-owned businesses

Find out more at www.successwithlatesha.com.

“The problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power.”

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In the business world rooted in racism and economic inequity, we can either talk about the problem or take action. Latesha Isbell Howard, a business management consultant and marketing manager for a Fortune 500 company, is all about action. With over 25 years in the business industry, she noticed a problem within her community with the lack of financial knowledge, access to capital, and entrepreneurship education, so she decided to launch Savvy Diva Enterprises.

“A lot of us were not taught about credit and personal finances,” said Howard. “Financial literacy and entrepreneurship aren’t taught in high school or college, and that’s why I offer these services.”

Her company specializes in business credit, funding solutions, education and resources for minority female entrepreneurs. She also provides additional resources that support personal credit optimization, helping clients to become lender ready.

Operating in the corporate world with her Master’s in Business Administration and a Bachelor’s in Finance, Howard has gained valuable expertise to help her clients to structure, fund, and operate their small businesses like Fortune 500 companies.

“I love what I do, but I am only making small ripples in the ocean. God says it’s time to go bigger!” said Howard. And this is why she has launched a huge initiative to serve 2,300 minority women-owned businesses annually. Savvy Diva Enterprises has developed an entrepreneurship academy, small business incubator, community development loan fund, real estate investing program, and youth financial literacy and entrepreneurship program.

“This is a call to action to every bank with CRA goals, every corporation or municipality with community and economic development goals, every philanthropist that wants to leave a legacy, and every government funding program that supports entrepreneurship or financial literacy. We’re also seeking partnerships with nonprofits whose mission aligns with ours,” said Howard. To learn more about how you can support this initiative, click here.

“Together we can change the lives of an underrepresented, underserved, and underutilized population,” said Howard. A study by McKinsey & Company states that “in a parity scenario, Black-owned businesses would generate $1.6 trillion more than they do today.” This point illustrates why economic equity is vitally important.

This trailblazing wife, mother, entrepreneur, and stage 3 breast cancer survivor lights up when she talks about teaching clients how to turn their passion into a plan and transform the plan into profits. “I love to see people win; helping these women level up in their business and finances is my life purpose,” said Howard.

Plensy™ Inc. is the World’s First End-to-End Credit & Lending Solution for Car Buyers and Dealerships, allowing consumers to regain control of their purchasing power and credit score while benefiting from interest rates and loan terms that won’t break their bank or threaten their family’s survival.

On the Plensy™ Wefunder campaign page, the general public can now make reservations. Wefunder is a website that connects startups with investors through crowdfunding. The “Kickstarter for Investing” platform makes use of a provision in the JOBS Act of 2012 that allows unaccredited investors to purchase equity in early-stage private companies.

The Points-based Lending System – Plensy™, teamed with Wefunder to offer their future customers the opportunity to purchase Plensy’s initial equity, which offers discounted shares to early Seed Round investors.

The disruptive FinTech company has achieved many milestones in the previous three years prior to the campaign’s launch, including:

• First company to create the Idea to apply NFTs to Vehicles and coin the term, Auto Smart Loans

• Patent filed in 2020

• 120 Dealerships across the United States Signed Agreements to Offer Plensy’s Alternative Lending Solution to its Customers 

• Some of the dealerships are under Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway Automotive Group and Lithia Motors, Inc., one of the largest automotive group retailers in the United States and is among the fastest-growing companies in Fortune 500

• Built a more streamlined and modern Dealer Management & Inventory System 2019-2020

• Auto Finance Innovation Award Nominee – Sam Errama, Founder & CEO

• Inspirational Woman of the Year Los Angeles Times – Brandi Kolosky, Founding Member & CGO

• Completed Friends & Family Round with $150k raised 

• Tested 3.3m data points showing a 97% efficacy of predicting default by accurately reflecting the customers’ true ability to pay a loan and their actual creditworthiness

“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to provide a superior value proposition to the consumers and dealerships while providing a significant return for our investors,” Miami Resident and Floridian, Chief Growth Officer / Founding Member of Plensy™, Brandi Kolosky, states. “The vote of confidence and eagerness from everyone over the past year shows that Plensy™ is needed now more than ever to provide a more accurate and faster solution with less risk for the credit and lending industry. We have already made significant headway on our target well before ‘going live’ on Wefunder and look forward to connecting with more fans of Plensy™!” 

Erik Day, VP & CFO of the Warren Henry Auto Group’s 14 South Florida dealerships, clarified on the 2021 CXAuto Conference panel with Ms. Kolosky at 1:34:30, “absolutely Plensy™ is needed….we are missing out on a lot of customers due to many factors…” 

“We’ve created statistical models and a loan approval prediction to increase the likelihood of a consumer qualifying while reducing missed payments and default rates. We’re employing a logistic regression model with real-time accurate data analytics and smart algorithms to assess a buyer’s true ability to pay, while our predictive analytics algorithm allows us to determine individual interest rates.”, said Plensy’s Founder, Sam Errama.

Plensy™ uses the blockchain to ensure that the above data is accurate, secure, and transparent by combining data points and risk mitigators such as rental history, gig economy income, additional assets, and more.

Janee Clay of Wealthy Nurse Janee Leads Nurses to Break Free from Financial Struggles

2021-11-17 – Shreveport, LA – With over 10 years of nursing experience, Janee Clay of Wealthy Nurse Janee understands the mental and physical stress nurses work through every day. Her mission became to improve the lives of nurses. Feeling little progress from professional nursing organizations, she knew nurses needed more. That’s when she developed an interest in investing and finance. After delving into many books, courses, and programs, she learned much more than she originally intended, and she knew she needed to share the knowledge with her fellow nurses so they could develop the security and freedom that comes with wealth.

“Nurses are some of the hardest working people,” says Janee. “However, no matter how hard they work, they don’t get wealthy by being a nurse alone. We are told not to go into our profession because of money, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care about it. Nurses deserve to know how to invest and build wealth. Nurses care so much for other people, sometimes they forget about themselves. I’m here to help them remember to take care of themselves and their futures.”

Janee first started sharing her journey and knowledge on social media as Wealthy Nurse Janee, but she realized social media simply would not truly make an impact. She began to mentor fellow nurses and developed her Wealthy Nurse Framework to help nurses build wealth. Janee gives an overview of her Wealthy Nurse Framework in these 5 steps:

Step 1: Developing the Wealth Mindset

Developing a wealth mindset is the foundational step to wealth creation. Mindset is integral to every following step, yet it’s easily overlooked. Most people developed a mindset based on what their families and friends told them when they were young. If a person was not surrounded by wealthy people they probably did not develop a wealth mindset. Think about the things a person may have been taught about money and the way they view the rich.

Many people wonder if wealthy people are just trust-fund babies who had everything handed to them on a platter. Or people think the wealthy had to work too hard and sacrifice their health or happiness to achieve wealth. Often people wonder why they work so hard but still have not become wealthy?

These mental blocks will make a person’s wealth journey much more difficult or even impossible. They need to learn to identify these negative thoughts and reframe them to the positive.

Step 2: Adopting positive financial habits

The next step is developing good money habits. In general, people know they should be saving and avoiding debt when possible, but they also know they should be eating right and exercising. Just because someone knows something does not mean they are doing it. The easiest way to make sure they are taking care of their future self is to pay themselves first. That means they take money out of their paycheck for savings and investments before spending on needs and wants. Even if they can only start with a very small amount, developing the habit is what is important.

Step 3: Investing in money-making assets

People should take the money they are saving and put it into investments to make more money. What kind of investment will depend on their goals (short and long term), ability to risk, and confidence in the asset. They should always invest in their own education first so they can gain confidence and understand what they are investing in.

Step 4: Building Multiple income streams

Nurses generally have good job security. However, the events of 2020 certainly showed nurses’ work is not guaranteed. Just like diversity reduces risk in investing, it also does with income. Additionally, nurses should be finding passive income streams to help supplement their income until it can completely replace their active income.

Step 5: Reinvest and Compound

After increasing income, the fastest way to build wealth is to take additional income and reinvest it. The more money available to invest, the faster it can grow. Beware lifestyle creep which is what usually happens. As income increases, the default is to also increase spending. A clever Wealthy Nurse will wait until passive income can support additional spending.

Bonus: Find a mentor

Finding a mentor for a personal wealth journey will make it faster and easier. Compare having someone give directions, buying a map, buying a GPS, or having someone in the passenger seat telling someone exactly how to get there. A mentor not only shows the way, but they are also there to hold a person accountable to keep them moving forward even when they feel lost or scared.

Knowing how beneficial a mentor is, Janee has launched her Wealthy Nurse Preceptorship, a group for highly motivated nurses wanting to build wealth with direct access and coaching with Wealthy Nurse Janee.

January 2020, Brandi became the Managing Director of DealBox, the World’s first Venture Capital firm utilizing Blockchain technology. She oversaw roughly $400m in client marketing and investment raises.

Winter 2020, Kolosky was hunted and accepted the role as Chief Growth Officer of Plensy™, to interrupt, innovate, and revolutionize the financial ecosystem with a patent-pending DeFi lending points system known as Plensy™.

Her role with Plensy™ is to transform the antiquated traditional financial ecosystem and credit score rating, from the current loan processing methodology by offering lending services through the Plensy™ platform, starting with applying NFTs to Vehicle in what they are stamping as Auto Smart Loans. Kolosky’s current goal is to secure the Seed Round fundraising of $25m. 

More recently she has begun to collaborate with LogosCapital.io on her lifelong mission to create bonds and introduce the firm’s investment allocations focused on oceans, waters, forests, humanitarian, and smart cities. 

Lastly, Aspire Drinks, a healthy alternative energy beverage, has contracted her to supervise the West Coast expansion into Sam’s Club, Target, and Ralphs retail locations. And she is a silent partner in the first-ever design-build-lease industrial cannabis grow model, TriTerra.

Brandi has completed her certifications in Innovations of Financial Technology at the University of Michigan, Healing with Nutrition and Food as Medicine from both Health Science Academy and Monash University, as well as Certified to lead Sprints created by Google Ventures. 

Her past includes dancing professionally for 21 years and holds the Miss Gainesville / Miss FL Delegate titles. Kolosky is currently pursuing her helicopter and single-engine pilots licenses.
