Lunch N Learn - Save on Taxes for Businesses

"Save on Taxes for Businesses"
 
Please join us for an informational session discussing employer sponsored retirement plans. The marketplace for retirement plans is dominated by firms that discuss things like funds, fees, historical performance, and employee retention. These aspects are important, but retirement plans are created because of the tax benefits they provide. Most employers set up their retirement plans without ever having a conversation or understanding about taxes at all!
Our discussion will shed light on how retirement plans help business owners reduce their tax obligations
as well as the tax credits and design strategies available to reduce the overall costs.

Presented by Mary Cavanaugh-Marsh, Edward Jones and Steve Herman, Fiduciary Advisors Ltd

Event is held at the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce, 289 N. Litchfield Rd., Goodyear
12:00 - 1:30 PM

Lunch will be provided, please call the Chamber to reserve your seat & lunch 623-932-2260

Lunch N Learn - Find, Craft and Tell Your Great 5-Minute Business Story!

Find, Craft and Tell Your Great 5-Minute Business Story! The "elevator speech" is dead and your networking "commercial" won't work in the real world.

Online, in-person, video, social-media: all these formats demand stories of your business.

In place of the archaic elevator speech, you need a pile of well-crafted, time-adjustable stories of your work and purpose, each ready to be matched to the right people at the right time. Online, in-person, video, social-media: all these formats demand stories! In this low-theory, high-activity workshop, you'll learn why you need to know the difference between anecdotes and stories. You'll experience your memories triggered to find your stories. Finally, be guided in the process to outline, craft and tell one of your newly-created stories with another person. You'll leave with customized and immediately useful content.

Light finger-food snacks and beverages will be provided and you may bring your lunch if you wish. You must call the office at 623.932.2260 to reserve your spot.
