I for one will be looking into whether taxes are being paid. I can't believe people are so dumb as to brag about the money they are making in the newspaper when it is very unlikely they are paying proper taxes. I LOVE Turning people in and being as I am related to people both in the IRS and for the State as tax auditors it's easy to do.
All businesses would be profitable from day one if they didn't have to pay taxes.

Not happy to accet the role of victim, she picks herself up by her bootstraps and takes responsibility!

Truly inspiring.

This should be required reading in every public office in Minnesota!!

I think it's pretty great!

I find it sooo interesting that people show their jealousy by throwing negativity on your success. If you would have sat at home eating bon-bon's they would be telling you to get off your rear and seek employment every waking minute of the day.

And if it turns out that all her taxes are in order, do you promise to report that fact back to us with equal enthusiasm? If not, personally I'm going to conclude that you are simply a mean-spirited person who is looking for a way to feel important, and I will not believe for a second that you seriously care at all about people doing the right thing.

I am all for self-employment. Now I might have missed it, but how does she keep up on stocking material, thread, etc? I also wonder about health insurance. Businesses are hard to run and the tax aspect of it is confusing enough even for those with accounting background. Good luck - way to find a niche and run with it.

Boo hoo, all right take your balls home and get it on with your bad self then! Yes, I suppose she is bragging about making money but it's also about entrepreneurship and the self-satisfaction of being your own boss. Some people pay their taxes out of sense of duty and not under the threat of naziwannabees like yourass.

I agree with you about running a business being hard but after starting two myself, I can say it takes a lot of work to succeed. There are a lot of people posting here that like to think that after a tough break, everyone needs aid or time to feel sorry for themselves. They are the ones that are just "born losers" that like to complain rather than accomplish anything.

Yep! With no help from anybody! Except for transportation infrastructure, roads to and from her suppliers and customers, public utilities, all paid for by our tax dollars... she pulled herself up by her bootstraps and did it alone... oh wait... I'm getting a headache...

Some people don't have a sense of humor.

It's tough to start and run a business. You have to chose a structure: sole proprietor, Limited Liability Corp, Sub Chapter S, or Sub Chapter C. Each carries a pile of paper work and pros and cons.

If the government would get out of the way, we would have more start ups.

This should be posted on the door of every welfare office in the state. Right below the CLOSED sign.
