After Phyllis and I returned from Florida we decided to use our Freedom Boat Club reciprical membership and go boating on Long Island Sound.  We embarked from Stamford Connecticut Harbor.We set out for the north shore of Long Island.  It was a choppy windy day but the boat handled very well and we came to the north shore of Long Island at Northport.  This is such a beautiful area.  I used to work near here when I lived on Long Island.  Here are some shots from my iPhone.  This has been a rainy summer but still an enjoyable one.  Monday is Labor Day and Fall effectively begins. If you are looking to make your Westchester NY or Fairfield CT business thrive please contact me. Grant SchneiderPerformance Development Strategies914-953-4458

Many of us volunteer our time for causes.  I like to volunteer my expertise to non profit organizations in my area.  It turns out that my next door neighbor in Armonk is Executive Director for The Women's Mentoring Network in Stamford Connecticut.Today I spoke to a group of women with a lunch and learn.  It was a diverse group and included different educational background and some looking for a job or a better job and some others who wanted to start their own business.My host asked me to talk about the Elevator statement.  I did this and tied it in with networking and having a positive attitude.One point I always make: Your opening line should invite a question.  For example, to the question what do you do you could say, "I am a civil engineer."  But much better, "I help city managers s...

I am thankful for so many things but most of all I am happy to be able to celebrate with family and friends.My daughter Ashley and son in law Tom entertained all of us with Thanksgiving in their first home in Stamford, CT.They hosted 16 adults and 2 children of family, siblings, and in laws.  We all brought something.  It is wonderful to share all of our favorite foods.  In addition to stuffing and mashed potatoes I brought my home made German Pfeffernüsse cookies and Springerle cookies.It was hard to get everyone into this picture.  A growing extended family.  I am thankful for our growing family.

The focus of our practice is on civil and criminal tax controversy, and we are often asked to defend taxpayers under IRS examination. One of the areas focused on by the IRS are the expenses claimed by taxpayers against their income. Taxpayers need to understand that they have to carry the burden of showing they are entitled to a deduction claimed on their tax return.Whether taxpayers live in Stamford, Connecticut, New York city or elsewhere, a significant hurdle faced by taxpayers with tax issues involves providing enough documentation to substantiate claimed expenses, deductions, and various other tax attributes. Some recent tax court decisions provide examples of how lack of substantiation can impact a taxpayer’s liabilities to the IRS.On November 22, 2016, the U.S. Tax Court issued T...

The demand for electricians in the United States has risen in the past few years. Employment of electricians is expected to grow 23 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. U.S. News and World Report ranked "Electrician" as #3 in Best Construction Jobs. So why is so difficult to find an electrician for hire?First, to become an electrician one needs training, an apprenticeship, and finally, a license. When looking to hire additional electricians, we hone in on those applicants that have customer service experience, are hard working and responsible, and have the skills to be a great electrician. The time we put into training an apprentice can be a big commitment. The payoff is having a group of employees that you can trust to send out on any job, and are abl...
