We’ve heard all through our lives we need to plan for the future – whether that is setting aside money in a 401(k), having a succession plan in place, or even something as simple as keeping backups of your data in case something goes terribly wrong.

UGM 2016 and How I Conquered My New Year's Resolutions Already

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Dec 11, 2015 3:21:51 PM

Everyone who knows me, knows that I’m a planner. I need to have all the details for everything planned out in advance so there are minimal chances of something going wrong. So it’s no surprise to anyone in our office that I have already started my New Year’s resolution list. While it’s not yet complete, it looks something like this today:

  1. Take a trip.
  2. Save as much money as I can this year.
  3. Learn. In any way. Something about my job, myself, others. Just learn.

  6. Say thank you more often.

With the holidays coming up, we know how important it is to get a deal on the items we shop for. This is just as true for your office as it is for your home. The Section 179 Deduction makes this even easier by allowing you to write off the full amount of qualifying purchases made in 2012 (up to $139,000) and take advantage of a 50% bonus depreciation on any amount above the deduction limit.
