Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF MARCH 16

E-mail Print PDF
The New Moon or “Wishing Moon” emerges on March 17. So in addition to drinking green beer and clipping four leaf clovers, maybe make a little wish with your libations. This is a most excellent time for taking stock of the last month. Are you aligned with your goals? Are you living as you wish? Madame G suggests that you...

Tax law doesn’t alter definitions of independent contractor

E-mail Print PDF
The new tax law passed by Congress in December 2017 aims to lower taxes for everyone, but proponents cite its overwhelming benefits to businesses. Under the new law, companies — including sole proprietors and workers in the gig economy — can deduct 20 percent of their revenue from taxable income.

This provision alone could disrupt formal relationships between employers and workers, increasing the number of people who define themselves as independent contractors. But employees who wish to serve their former employers as independent contractors should know that even though tax laws have changed, the rules governing working relationships have not: Independent contractors still must...

Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF MARCH 9

E-mail Print PDF
The Last Quarter Moon occurs on Friday, March 9. Consider this an excellent time for rest and reflection. You may notice some residual energy from the Full Moon, but this will only cause anxiety.

Don’t let the quiet fool you. Instead be the wary wise man. Take a few deep breaths and meditate. Use the quiet of this week to rest and reflect. There’s nothing like a little nap to refresh your mind, body, and soul. Madame G recommends that you consider the needs of your body, and listen. What’s yours saying? Start jogging or a read a good book. You’ve earned it.

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You always hit the ground running and you sprinted at a dead run for miles. Yes, you’re a beast. But, you’re only mortal. Take a few days off, or if that’s not in the cards take small breaks throughout the day. Don’t forget to eat and take care of yourself. If you feel compelled...

Healthcare or CPT codes (What are you getting?)

E-mail Print PDF
When we go to the hospital we do so because we need supportive healthcare, but we also need reliable and credible information, feel a sense of being cared for, and if it’s not too much to ask, an examination to help us thoroughly understand our present condition. Now let’s be clear there are excellent stewards of your health in hospitals across the country, but unfortunately there are an equal number of healthcare professionals entirely focused on meeting patient quotas, writing prescriptions and getting you out the door as quickly as possible regardless of the questions you have unanswered.

Recently a dear friend and client shared with me a frustrating experience she had at one of...
