If your company has a uniform policy that addresses the daily wear of costumes or uniforms by the employees the company can pay the costs and claim the deduction. Or you can put the costs on the employees and deduct the fees from their wages. The tax strategy would be best if the company claimed all expenses of the costumes or uniforms which would allow the company to be more systemized.
For instance if you have a restaurant that has a theme of fairy princesses and your uniform policy states your employees need to be in full costume or uniform, you as a business owner have a right as stated earlier to claim those deductions or deduct costume or uniform fees from your employees' wages.
As an employee if costumes or uniform fees are deducted from your wages you have a right to claim that on your income tax on schedule a under unreimbursed employee expenses. According to IRS publication 529 you can deduct the cost and upkeep of work clothes if the following two requirements are met. 1. You must wear them as a condition of your employment. 2. The clothes are not suitable for everyday wear. Did you hear what the 2nd condition was if the clothes are not suitable for everyday wear if you are wearing a fairy princess costume that is definitely not suitable for everyday wear outside of your job.
According to news.com.au, "ABBA has revealed that the flares, jumpsuits and platform heels that they donned in their heyday were not to stand out but worn as a tax write-off. In a new book, Björn Ulvaeus says that the band's style came about in part because of Swedish tax laws that allowed the cost of costumes to be tax deductible but only if they were so outrageous that they couldn't be worn on the street. "In my honest opinion we looked like nuts in those years. Nobody can have been as badly dressed on stage as we were," he writes. The revelation comes in a new book, Abba: The Official Photo Book, published to mark 40 years since they won Eurovision with Waterloo.
As you can see what Björn states is the same thing the United State Tax Code Law states "The clothes are not suitable for everyday wear."
As a business owner you have a creative way you want your company to be, so then follow your heart because there are tax deductions that you will be able to implement for your creative business ways.

As a business owner you can implement a healthy lifestyle in your company. Implementing a wellness plan in your company is beneficial for reducing health insurance premiums, reducing worker's compensation claims, increase worker's productivity, and improves employees overall health.
The IRS Code Section 132 titled Certain Fringe Benefits gives a detailed listing of what is considered fringe benefits in a company and what are taxable and non-taxable to the employer and employee.
IRS Code 26 Section 132(j)(4) states:
On-premises gyms and other athletic facilities
(A) In general
Gross income shall not include the value of any on-premises athletic facility provided by an employer to his employees.
(B) On-premises athletic facility
For purposes of this paragraph, the term "on-premises athletic facility" means any gym or other athletic facility -
(I) which is located on the premises of the employer,
(ii) which is operated by the employer, and
(iii) substantially all the use of which is by employees of the employer, their spouses, and their dependent children (within the meaning of subsection (h)).
In my personal case to legally implement a well plan in my business I held a company meeting and in the minutes I stated that my company will incorporate a company-wide wellness program. The meeting minutes further stated the reasons for incorporating this program. Next, I created an employee wellness plan policy manual which pretty much states my company's rules and regulations in regards to the wellness plan accordance to the IRS code. Within the policy manual I list the purpose for having this wellness program such as promotes healthy lifestyle among employees, etc. Then I listed what the company will provide to the employee such as on-site fitness facility as well as company incentives. In regards to the incentives the policy makes notes of taxable and non-taxable incentives. Taxable would be include on the employee's W-2.
Many companies are implementing some kind of wellness plan in their companies not only for tax benefits but to improve their employees overall health which makes them more productive. Some companies are adding on-site fitness facilities or supplying company wide gym memberships or discounts to gyms. There are a plethora of benefits for incorporating a wellness plan but a major benefit is boosting company morale.
Therefore, the tax benefits would be that you are able to deduct 100% of your wellness plan purchases which is not dependent upon the size of your business.

Depreciation stacking is where you would depreciate your tangible asset with section 179 limited amount, then deduct up to 50% on the bonus depreciation, and then on the balance you would take a MACRS deduction divisible by the asset's life.
Section 179 deduction is a name of an IRS code that deals with depreciation. Section 179 deductions is where you can elect to recover all or part of the cost of tangible properties purchased through your company, up to a limit ($500,000 in 2013); by deducting it in the year you place the property in service. Businesses are allowed to deduct the full purchase price on new and some used equipment purchased during the tax year. In other words if you purchase a tangible as set in year 2013 you will be able to deduct the whole purchase amount of the asset up to the company's net profit. There is a "phase out" dollar for dollar after the purchase of 2 million dollars of new and/or used equipment.
Bonus depreciation is an allowance for additional first year depreciation and it is 50% of the purchase price of new equipment.
Modified accelerated cost recovery system also known as MACRS is where the cost of a tangible property is recovered by annual depreciable deductions.
Please note the stacking of depreciation is only for income tax purposes your regular accounting books would be different usually depreciating over the assets useful life minus salvage value if there is any.
Also this is totally legal and it is a tax incentive of the IRS to businesses.
A company purchases $1 million dollars in construction equipment
1st take Section 179 deduction $500,000
2nd take Bonus depreciation 50% ($1 million - $500,000 = $500,000) $250,000
3rd take MACRS $250,000 balance / 7 years = $35,714
You will be able to depreciate a total of $785,714 which is comprised of the $500,000 from Section 179 deduction, $250,000 from bonus depreciation, and $35,714 from the MACRS depreciation.
As stated earlier you will be able to deduct the whole purchase amount of the asset up to the company's net profit
Well Ruthie purchased $15,000 of office equipment.
Her net profit is $10,000.
1st take Section 179 deduction $10,000 (limited to net profit)
2nd take Bonus depreciation 0% and Ruthie opted out
3rd take MACRS $5,000 balance / 7 years = $714
You will be able to depreciate a total of 10,714 which is comprised of the $10,000 from Section 179 deduction, from bonus depreciation, and $35,714 from the MACRS depreciation.
Now you see the benefits of taking a depreciation and using the stacking sequence

A new Generation of Queens who’s unapologetic of their wealth. They bling out and when you are in their presence you know they are Queens their dress convey that. They exude influence, power and authority.They let you know God is the one for their success.
These chicks these Queens are not limited by their age, the lead other women to success, they carry large purses and at times it takes others to help them carry it.
They even take on the passion of others who lost their life to fulfill that person’s purposeful destiny taking it as their own. Finally these are some wise chicks who know how to maneuver in every situation.
These are some bad chicks are you willing to join this army of Queens?
Not Limited by Age
You are not limited by your age to birth out your business dreams. There are two women in the bible who were old and barren and never thought their dreams of being a mother would be realized.
While things seemed bleak for them God came in and resurrected their dreams. Elizabeth and Sarah were older in age when they were able to conceive a child.
You may be up in age and feel like it’s hopeless or useless to try to create a business. You may feel like “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ so going back to school or get training is a no. The company you keep could be discouraging you. God has put this passion in your heart He trusts you to fulfill this so you will be blessed financially so you and your spouse can fulfill personal dreams and desires you have.You want to leave an inheritance for your grandchildren and beyond.
But because the place you are at now you will not be able to. God is trying to take you from the mundane and get you out of potential and into your purpose to live the good life you so desire.
Because others your age aren’t pursuing the new that’s their problem this is about you and what you want out of life. If they are happy being where there are so be it but you do have big dreams.
When Elizabeth was pregnant her cousin Mary visited her whom was also pregnant with a famous child name Jesus and when those two connected the baby in Elizabeth jumped and leaped.
When these two women carrying a dream that seemed impossible and with their connection it sparked a confirmation and excitement in them to fulfill their dreams.
That’s why Queen you need to be around other Queens carrying a business dream inside of them that will inspire, motivate and encourage you to fulfill your business dreams. You just need to be around people that excite that business dream within you.
I want to tell you about some Business Queens who started their business later in life:
Leader of Women
Queen you are called to lead other women to inspire, to motivate, to empower, to excite, to duplicate, to disciple or to mentor.
Exodus 15:20-21 NIV then Miriam the prophet, Aaron’s sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her, with timbrels and dancing. Miriam sang to them: “Sing to the Lord, for he is highly exalted. Both horse and driver he has hurled into the sea.”
In regards to those two verses Miriam took on the initiative to lead these women.
Queen you need to take the initiative to commit yourself to lead women in creating businesses and impacting their community all the while having balance in faith, family, fitness and finance.
A real leader just don’t let the problem remain they get up and do something about it.
Psalm 68:11 GWT the Lord gives instructions. The women who announce the good news are a large army.
Instructions means to commands, speak, word, sayings, announces. Announce means to proclaim, tell, call out, cry out, to publish.
What Psalm 68:11 is stating is that God has called you Queen to be a VOICE to be a part of an army of Queens changing the world. So whatever businesses you have or whatever businesses you are going to create He called you to impact the world.
The charge for you Queen is to use your Business Life as an example to inspire other business women. Share your failures and successes. Tell them your process.
Carrying a Large Purse
Queen you are called to impact your communities.
Destiny is where you are going and purpose is what you are going to be doing when you get there. ~Dy Wakefield
Your purpose in life is the willingness to dedicate your life to see that vision and mission of it accomplished. ~Dy Wakefield
Luke 8:1-3 NIV after this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The twelve were with him, and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.
In those verses those chicks those Queens had large purses, they had deep pockets and they had bank. Those women knew the importance of community so they wanted to help Jesus’ ministry so they did by financially supporting it. Yes praying is good but giving money allowed his ministry leverage to travel further to places to spread the gospel.
Walking in the position of Queen represents power, influence and authority.
Queen you were born to be a business owner and through those businesses you are to help and support your community or charities.
Through your businesses the revenue generated should fatten your pockets, your wallets and your pocket book. Your purse should be so fat that you need people to help you carry it.
As Queen giving is a natural trait because of your compassion. You have the heart to know when something is wrong and you want to fix it. When you see despair you are there to lend a hand financially or physically.
Therefore as you can see Queens are to be blessed living the good life plus being a blessing to your community.
Birthing out someone else’s Purpose
Luke 1:30-31 KJV and the angel said unto her, fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus,
Luke 2:6–7 TPT when they arrived in Bethlehem, Mary went into labor, and there she gave birth to her firstborn son.
Queen as I read those scriptures I saw that this was a woman who was birthing out someone else’s dream. Then I thought about us that we have our purpose but sometime things happen in life and we take on other people’s purposes.
We are to impact our communities and that can be because of a passion you want to fulfill. It could be because you see lack in an area. Then it could be because someone has died and you want help others not go through that. Sometimes people pick up a purpose they never had intentions to but because of a loss or death a compassion and passion comes upon them to carry the torch for those who had passed away.
Usually when people create foundations especially disease related ones its due from a loss of a loved one, because a loved has survived that disease and/or they are experiencing it themselves.
Queen you may just receive a cause-related purpose or even a business that just came in your lap so to speak and you may feel I can’t take on this because my purpose is this and my destiny is to go there.
Remove the word ‘can’t’ from your vocabulary.
You just received someone else’s baby that was left at your door or given to you because they died so to speak and this child needs to be nurtured this child needs to be loved.
Are you willing to adopt someone else’s child (which I am talking about their charitable purpose, their destiny and/or even their purposeful business) in your life?
God wouldn’t give you something you couldn’t handle so your first thing to do is to pray to God to see if this something he wants you to take on. If he says yes then you say yes. God will and can stretch you to fulfill the purpose He birth in you as well as this new purpose.
Basically you are taking on or picking up someone’s mantel and fulfilling it.
So in regards to the scripture about Mary she took on God’s purpose to be fulfilled on earth. This VIRGIN chick was engaged to Joseph and she said yes to God to carry his child for God’s greater purpose.
She decided to take it on even though she would be scrutinized. So in other words if you decide to pick it up and take on someone else’s purpose you may have family, friends and others telling you, you don’t need to be doing that. You have too much to do yourself to be fulfilling someone’s purposes. Basically the doubters will come, especially those who seem like they are so sincere and looking out for your best interest but that’s just the trick of the enemy.
Getting back to Mary because she said yes, God sent help to her to support her in that cause. The man she was engaged to could have left her but he was able to hear God and discern that this is God’s purpose so Joseph was able to support her and help her fulfill God’s purpose.
So Queen when you say yes the right connections will come into your path that will want to stand with you, support you and help you fulfill it.
Okay back to Mary and Joseph after they were able to help God fulfill his purpose on earth God blessed them with their own children which I will say is their own purpose and destiny i.e. purposeful businesses and/or charitable purposes.
You are a Renaissance Queen that have your own purposes (business and charity or purposeful businesses) are you willing to take on someone’s purpose to fulfill because they passed away?
Are you willing to lend your womb to be a surrogate for someone else’s dream who wasn’t able to fulfill it? Are you willing to see it grow? Are willing to put your time, money and energy to help someone else’s baby materialize successfully? Are you willing to adopt someone’s baby as your own? If this is you then be willing to be stretched by God and then make that decision and say yes. Ask God to give you wisdom how to fulfill your purpose and someone else’s purpose.
Wisdom the key to Access
In 1 Samuel 25 King David had been hiding out from King Saul (side note: Saul was jealous of David and knew he will take the throne. Saul knew it was God’s will for David to take over the throne but King Saul didn’t want to abdicate it. King Saul was tripping right and God was not having it so God sent Prophet Samuel to find a new king. But Saul didn’t want to leave. But hey dude you can’t out smart God. God’s plan was going to be manifested be Saul liked it or not.)
Okay back to the story so future King David had been hiding out and he had over 400 men that was broke, busted and disgusted who wanted him to help them. During his “On the Run Tour” future King David happened to be in a country where a wealthy rich business man name Nabal who literally had 1,000 cattle’s on the hill because he was a cattle business king. David out of respect didn’t steal this man's cattle to feed himself or his army but one day he and his men were hungry so David sent his men with a message to this dude Nabal and asked if they could have food and to tell Nabal that he and his boys were respectful to him and they didn’t steal any of the cattle even though they have access to.
But Nabal as the bible state was a ‘surly and mean’ business man and told David’s messenger to tell King David I don’t know who you and no. He didn’t just say no he was rude okay and he sent David men’s back to the future King David with their tails wagging between their legs.
David’s men knew that David would be pissed so on the way back being scared to go and tell David some of them decided to tell Nabal’s wife Abigail what happened with hopes she would help.
The bible states that Abigail was an intelligent and beautiful woman, or a woman of understanding. She was wise and beautiful. So she knew that she needed to act and act quickly because once David’s men tell him what happened he was going to kill Nabal, her and destroy their home, land and businesses.
When David’s men got back to him tell him what Nabal had said the bible states this in verse 13 in the NIV version “David said to his men, ‘Each of you strap on your sword!’ So they did, and David strapped his on as well.”
Oh my gosh, David told them to get strapped so this was serious. David and his army was going to kill this wealthy businessman Nabal, his wife Abigail and their servants and was going to destroy that man’s home and businesses and take Nabal’s food and other belongings.
But because of this wise woman Abigail Nabal’s wife she cut David off at the cross hairs, cross road, she had him cut off. She had her servants greet him and his men with food and wine. Okay at this time David was ticked and he wasn’t listening to no one. His boys, his band of men, his army was like, “Yo, King David his old lady brought us some food we alright now.” But once you tick off a king he is going in for the kill. When a king goes in battle they go to destroy the whole territory to take it over or destroy the inhabitants in there and take it over.
But thank God for a wise woman because her wise words to David she spoke to the king inside of him and stopped him in his rage. But know this oh yes David had his men kill her husband Nabal then he took this wise and beautiful woman as his wife. Oh my!!!
So Queen in any business dealing use wisdom to guide you because not all people that you will be dealing are nice they are mean, you know those 'meanie men' so you have to have the wisdom of God to direct you in your conversation and business transactions.
Wisdom is the ability to recognize difference.
So Queen always asks God for wisdom in all you do and all you get involved in. Ask God to show you how to communicate with people you know like those Nabal’s those surly and mean men those 'meanie men'. God will. He will give you words to say or he could tell you to walk away.

She later divorced him and then he was able to marry the woman of his dreams. Queens check that out two parts to it, it’s very powerful raw and real also a tearjerker.
Have you ever woke up and realize?
Have you ever woke up and realize you fill in the blank there?
Awake O Queen from slumbering! Arise and sit on your throne to decree!
When she woke up
Awake O Queen from slumbering arise
While you are going through life half woke people, the enemy is stealing your dream and replacing it.
Awake O Queen from slumbering arise
Discern what is in front of you see the deception
Awake O Queen from slumbering arise
In this season of the Great Awakening you are waking up to reality or you woke up to reality and you feel like you should go back to sleep because you have been shook. It seems like you were jolted and even jilted. You have been shaken to your core. You have been sifted and shifted. You are shattered. You may be crying at this point but do you know that's okay cry girl! Come; lay on my shoulder let it all out. Go deep like Chris Stapleton’s Sometimes I Cry. Hey I will cry with you. I had that awaken experience in my own life but my saving grace my redeemer my helper was God that guided me on the right path. The things He showed me I was like it’s going to take another twenty years to fix the twenty years I lost but nope His grace accelerated me and he showed me things to do that took less time to do and for things to manifest for me quicker. Do you know that I got joy they call it unspeakable joy. I say ridiculous joy. Through the betrayals, setbacks, sabotage, attacks, lies, deceits, abuse, mind control, people trying to discredit me and my work, people putting their agendas on me using me as their puppet. Do you know I have joy? What the heck? It’s all because of God of this joy it is internal baby! That reflects externally. When I should be crying at that thing, circumstance I am laughing because the joy of the Lord, it is my strength. He says I got you Dy? He says in his word if I be for you who can be against you. Yeah God knows how to clap back. Slap some people for me. God go gangsta for those He loves for those who honor and love Him. He got my back. He takes vengeance for me and he will do it for you to Queens.
Zephaniah 3:19 ERV At that time I will punish those who hurt you. I will save my hurt people. And bring back those who were forced to leave. I will give them praise and honor (fame) everywhere. Even in places where they suffered shame.
So this is going to be deep
Let’s delve into today topic I found this when I was reading 1 kings 3 I will paraphrase for you. Solomon was just promoted as king and he asked God for wisdom so in his first act of ruling he was presented a case where two women who were roommates that were pregnant at the same time and gave birth in the same week. The woman who had her baby first the baby end up dying because of crib death well actually it said she rolled over on him when they sleeping unbeknownst to the other expectant mother. So when the other mother gave birth and had her child laying next to her in the night the grieving mother took that woman’s child and replaced him with her dead son. So when the new mom Woke Up!!!!! to check on her son she was grieved she thought her child died during the night but when she looked closer she Realized!!!! that wasn’t her child.
1 Kings 3:21 ERV in the morning I woke up and was about to feed the baby when I saw he was dead. When I looked at him more closely, I saw that he was not my baby.
A mother knows. A mother knows. She had been bamboozled, hooked winked. She knew. Instead of trying to argue she took that chick to the king. She presented her case and Solomon decided. Both women were claiming this living child as theirs. So Solomon decided that he would have the living child cut in half to share amongst the two mothers. The grieving mother said yes but the actual mother of the child decided to let her have him instead of seeing him put to his death. Then right then and there Solomon knew who the real mother was. Case closed.
Courts of Heaven So Queens I present your case to the King, the King of the Universe, God, El Shaddai. God who is Judge. So every accusation against you, every lie, every attack, every thing hindering and distracting you, every person hindering and distracting you, every person putting their agenda on you, every setback, every sabotage, every betrayal, deceit, abuse, mind control, every person trying to discredit you and your work, everything stolen from you, everything destroyed and died and etc that I just can’t name them all but God is all knowing He knows your individual circumstance your individual case so it has to bow in Jesus Name. God’s verdict over you is victory and triumph. He declares a compensation award for you of restoration restoring the years the enemy has stolen, killed and destroyed from you. His reward of restitution is double for your trouble. God’s verdict for your enemy is vengeance he has release his vengeance upon them he said you will get to see their demise.
Habakkuk 2:7-8 ERV Strong man, you have taken money from people. One day they will wake up and realize what is happening, and they will stand against you. Then they will take things from you, and you will be very afraid. You have stolen things from many nations, so they will take much from you.
Queens it's time to put on a show! Fix your hair baby or adjust your wig, touch up your make-up, put your high heels on, put your robe on, put your crown on girl. God has prepared you a table, come dine. I know they see you girl. God said he has prepared it in the presence of your enemy. Now just smile and wave. Now I want you to point at the splendor on that table to them yell out over to them and say "This is the Lord's doing."
So as your counselor to stay woke and never let this let this happen again I suggest that you set aside 30 minutes a day with God preferably first thing in the morning before you get on that phone, internet etc. Wake up early if you have to. Take 5 - 10 minutes read a chapter a day start with Proverbs the wisdom book after you read it ask God what does that chapter pertain to you He may show you areas you need to change, follow etc. Reading the word helps get you in the place to hear that small still voice from the Holy Ghost. Then take 5 - 10 minutes and just sit and listen for God. Then in the final minutes journal what you are hearing and seeing.

Narrated by Patton Oswald
So often we are afraid of things
Because they are different from what we know
But when we learn to embrace the unfamiliar
That's when we can truly grow
Shed the old versions of ourselves
And leave our comfort zone behind
Because in the end the things that scares us the most
Can bring us closer than we could ever imagine
That's when our dream really do come true.
Queens let's go on this journey together in a sisterhood, queenhood, army of queens, culture of queens in the unknown We Be Woke Now yes we were tricked we were bamboozled but girl we are on our throne and we aren't getting off of it unless we are being with our Boo and in that case we are relying on our loyal and trusted cabinet team managing our Queendom for us.

Your business Queendom should impact the community it is located in.
As a social entrepreneur your products, services and financial resources are the funnel for that.
There are also biblical steps you must do that will prosper you, your queendom and the community.
The place God called you to
Acts 20:22 NIV And now, compelled by the spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there.
There are seasons in your life that you need to change your location. You may have this desire in your heart to leave, that intuition is speaking to you and the Holy Ghost is speaking within your spirit to leave.
This nudge is getting you to the place of your destiny to fulfill the purpose you were created for since birth.
Pray for it and its leaders
1 Timothy 2:2 pray in this way for kings and all others who are in authority over us, or are in places of high responsibility, so that we can live in peace and quietness, spending our time in Godly living and thinking much about the Lord.
Jeremiah 29:7 also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.
Once you know where you will be going you can begin praying for it and its leaders. As you can see the above scriptures states praying causes peace and prosperity in your area. When you pray you are being that bridge to a peaceful and prosperous area where you, your business and community can grow and thrive.
Following the Laws
1 Peter 2:13-14,17 MSG make the master proud of you by being good citizens. Respect the authorities, whatever their level; they are God’s emissaries for keeping order. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.
You have to respect your area that God has caused you to influence. You will have businesses there so you will want to be a positive influence in that area.
Proverbs 11:10 when the righteous prosper, the city rejoices; when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy.
Creating jobs is one aspect of economic development to your area. Once you create more jobs to that area you also improve the community through the schools. You are bringing growth to that area causing houses and apartments to be developed. Because of you, money is being spent in that area expanding that community.
Deuteronomy 15:29 and the stranger, and the orphan and the widow who are within your [city] gates, shall come and eat and be satisfied, so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.
As Queen, as a business woman you can impact your community through your businesses. It’s your responsible to be the agent of change creating and building pushing out the drug dealers, the gangs, and crime. Your wealth will allow you to build buildings for homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, training facilities in that area.
Expand your Queendom to a Queenpire
Proverbs 13:22 KJV, “a good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children.”
Being creative is important to keep your business up-to-date on the changing world and consumer’s products and services demands. The reason for expansion is to build a company that can stand the test of time through many generations.
Tabasco and Bacardi has been in business for over 5 generations since the 1860s as a privately held family owned company. These two companies have corporate social responsibility giving back to the community.
As a business woman you may have started off doing everything from being the secretary, marketing, taxes and making decision but when your company grows you will need to begin delegating duties and hire more people.
You could have reached a point of frustration and being overwhelm so it’s time to hire. Maybe you are only at a stage to hire an assistant to take over the menial task so you can focus on the major aspects of the business.
Or you are at level of major growth that you need to build a team to oversee the managers who oversee the workers.
Whatever the case I will explain the levels of employees hired in a company to help you understand what you may need in your company at this time.

5 P’s of a Successful Queen:
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26 ESV

Awake O Queen, from slumbering! Arise, and sit on your throne to decree.™ ~Queen Dy Wakefield
Do you know you were born with a purpose and that purpose drives you to your destiny! Yes I am talking to you. You have been so wrapped up in life you forgot why you were born.
According to Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
As you can see Genesis 1:26 is stating that you are supposed to take dominion, you are to rule and reign, you are a Business Queen! Your destiny is a Business Queen but your purpose is what you have been dreaming about and pondering about all your life.
For example, as Business Queen your purpose could be to create skin care products with special formulation that combats dry skin of female chemo patients. Or to create organic skin care products and donate some of the products to female chemo patients who are dealing with dry skin from those chemo treatments.
Your purpose is never self-directed; your purpose is to help people. You could be Supergirl, a doctor, an entertainer so whatever it is, it’s not for you it is for the good of others.
Destiny is where you are going and Purpose is what you are going to be doing when you get there. ~Dy Wakefield
When are you gonna stop dreaming? When are you gonna stop pondering woulda, coulda and shouldas? Just burst out of that box of limitation and go create the world you have envisioned not what other has planned for you.
Let go of the distractors, controllers and doubters.
Love them from afar as they watch you from behind making your moves into your destiny.
If you are not walking in your purpose and destiny ask Jesus to be your business partner and ask Him to be your Lord and Savior and watch your life change.
To have a successful business you need the right employees that are loyal to your vision and mission for the company. You can’t have people that want to do their own thing. This company or these companies are given to you by God and if He wanted them to be the leader He would have made them Queen.
