A Billion Dollars of Hidden Money in America

As you know, a big part of my book and what I say is there is so much “Hidden Money” in America; in the government, in corporations, in non-profits – nothing sneaky, just money and opportunities we should be applying for that are particularly advantageous to women and minority owned companies.

Well, our dear partners WIPP (Women Influencing Public Policy), an incredible non-profit that helps advocate for and teaches women how to find Hidden Money (among many other things), has uncovered over a billion dollars of Hidden Money in tax incentives that we should all know about and be taking advantage of.
I’m excited to share that WIPP, working with American University’s Kogod Tax Policy Center, has released its new report showing how women business owners use the tax code. The results are startling!

Kogod’s report, Billion Dollar Blind Spot: How the U.S. Tax Code’s Small Business Expenditures Impact Women Business Owners, which used a national survey of WIPP affiliated women business owners as part of its analytical foundation, shows that women business owners are missing out on key tax provisions. Additionally, they can’t take full advantage of more than $255 billion in tax incentives designed to stimulate small business growth, or access to capital and investment.

Ladies,we need to become informed. Please read the report and please stay in touch with our webinars and our stories on Hidden Money.

We have an incredible Summer School webinar series, coming up in August, with “real talk” and step by step information on how to start with an idea, launch a business, scale it, and actually make money. Stay tuned for more info…Finding the “Hidden Money” is part of the “how”.

Nothing is coming to us on a silver platter, we have to go hunt it down. Thank you to WIPP and Kogod for digging and hunting on our behalf – but now,let’s go hunting for all this Hidden Money!

Adelante!!! Ladies – Let’s become Self Made.
