Do not forget to remember to file your annual returns. I understand that running your company is a huge responsibility. You have deadlines, pressing matters, impatient clients. Your annual returns are due on the anniversary of incorporating the company. You will see the date of incorporation on the Certificate of Incorporation.
There is a time period of 30 days after the anniversary date also called a “grace period”. After this 30 day period elapses, a penalty of $300.00 per month will be incurred. This debt must be satisfied in full before any further Annual Returns can be filed.
The Ministry of Legal Affairs offers a service in Trinidad and Tobago, whereby a director and or corporate secretary will receive an email or SMS text message indicating that the Annual Returns are now due.
Kindly peruse the website of the Ministry of Legal Affairs in Trinidad and Tobago and look for the section with “SMS and Email Sign Up“.
If you run into any difficulties, do not hesitate to contact me:
Success follows success . After registering your first company , clients may ask you for additional services and you decide to incorporate another company .
Yes , it is possible to have more than one company registered . As you recall from registering your first company, a name search must be conducted to determine whether the selected name is available. The second step is to prepare the incorporation documents and have them filed at the registry . The necessary fees will be paid and within five to seven days the Certificate of Incorporation will be ready for your collection.
In a situation where the proposed company falls with the schedule of listed businesses,the company must be registered with the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) . For further assistance please contact Sydney at 868 373-1166
Start where you are with what you have. Despise not the day of small beginnings. Use the little salary that you currently have to fund your dream.Dreams are expensive. Every month put aside cash to invest in your business.
Learn to cut costs,such as rent ,cell phone bills. Perform a monthly audit to see where your money goes.Then look at ways to spend less. Once the item is in good working condition do not afraid to buy it used. Try not to make excuses as to why you are not living your dreams. You cannot learn business by reading books or watching videos . You must actually start the business. Promote your business and reinvest profits in your own business.

The things that we accept, will be the things that we regret in our partners.My neighbour’s pet dog usually comes in my yard,he chases chickens,birds,vehicles and barks at pedestrians. He only does these things away from his residence.When he is home,he sleeps inside the house,he eats dog food,and he appears well trained. As soon as he afforded the opportunity to leave his yard,he reveals his true nature. My father observed the dog eating chicken bones that we discarded and he remarked that the dog sleeps on his own couch at home,yet he is in our yard,consuming bones. I replied, “a Dog is still a dog”. It does not matter if we take the dog to the vet, or we buy brand name accessories for the dog, he is still a dog.
I considered the lives of many people who feel that they can change their romantic partner. Silly isn’t it? Maya Angelou said that when people show you who they are,believe them. Do not waste your time and energy trying to fix the perceived flaws and imperfections on another. Invest that time in yourself. Accept people for who they show you they are.
Are you blind to the true nature of your partner?
Open your eyes !

Today is a present. Are you alive or just living ? Bills ,bills ,bills. I wish the person who invented bills will choke on his saliva. Bills are a huge inconvenience to me. But working towards generating funds to pay these bills is fun. In the absence of he responsibility to pay bills,some people may never enter into the workforce. Nevertheless,it is a blessing to be on your way to work. Some people are not economically active. Look at it as a quest. You are on a journey to make money. Do not look at it as going to your dead end job. A wise man told me that there are “…No dead end jobs,just dead end people “. Do not resent your employer,after all the company is paying your bills,sending your kids to school. For the entrepreneurs out there,think of your job as your investor. I encourage you to view your day as an adventure,just like something I heard in the movie Peter Pan ,the version with Robin Williams.

Saturday morning cartoons make me feel alive.I prepared pancakes, sausages and eggs for breakfast and I watched cartoons from the 90s.
In the evening time,I watched an episode of Johnny Bravo,where a series of unfortunate things happened to him as he lusted after yet another woman. It could have been a heat flash,but Dionne Warwick appeared in a vision to him. She warned Johnny that his failure to believe in himself and his ability to successfully pursue the woman was the cause of his perceived bad luck.
It’s amazing where you can find inspiration. In a cartoon ,a movie,a child . Just think of it as the universe’s way of speaking to you.
Believe in yourself.Believe in your dreams.Believe in your ability to execute the project. Never give up.Trust the process.
Do not let your own doubt cause you to experience bad luck.Just believe.

I lament the complete lack of regard for the proverbial “moment” by my generation and I. We spend the vast majority of our day scrolling through pointless news feeds and reading irrelevant updates. These things do not in anyway enrich the value of our lives or assist in our personal development. I am oftentimes prompted to update the software on my phone and it makes me wonder if I am upgrading myself often. Perish the thought that I was doing the same thing last year around this time. That will be contrary to my progressive nature.
Life in a cell…phone is an unpaid , full time job. There are numerous requests awaiting my acceptance. Just thinking of all the advertisements that pop up in my feed raises my blood pressure. Various updates about other interactions that are of absolutely no value to me. There are new stories waiting to be seen. New displays of egos waiting to be inflated. Recycled lack of good self-esteem selfies resurfacing. Unattractive faces with toned bodies waiting for a “like” or “comment”. If I oblige, the notifications will be cleared, if I accept the requests and appease you…I receive absolutely no monetary reward for doing this.
Life in a cell…phone takes away from enjoying the moment. When last have you had a face to face conversation, while leaving your prison warden (cell…phone) in your pockets? Have you noticed that your “friend” got a new haircut? Have you engaged in a conversation with your friends without mentioning a viral video? I know many couples who would not have a relationship if they had no Wifi connection or electricity. We honestly believe that exchanging free text messages on the available instant messaging applications constitutes communication. We think that we can know someone after sending and receiving a few free messages. At least, I hope that I am worth more than a free text message.
Life in a cell…phone distracts from the red flags.The things that we accept at the start of our relationships, will be the things that we regret and admit close to the demise of our relationships. The red flags are always there, but we are distracted by our maximum security cell…phones to notice. On the outside looking in, your peers may point out flaws in your partner, but you do not have the time to investigate because you are indisposed in serving your sentencing in your cell…phone.
Life in a cell…phone blocks us from achieving personal excellence. Imagine how you can become more valuable at your organization by taking some new courses. There are different seminars and workshops at your disposal. Knowledge is power, and this power that is being conferred is free. In this Information Age, what do we really know? Our minds remain chained to the distractions that are being fed to us by our oppressors. And we consume these distractions with glee and wonder why we can’t improve our standards of living. The good news is , that you may receive a pardon or be due for parole if you remember to live in the moment and not in your cell…phone.
