Press Release – For Immediate Release: The pauir of The Anti-Pink – pauir Workout Top and Warriorwear as Daily Duty – Press Release from pauir athletic apparel – 11.19.14

Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/scarwearyourstory/pauirthe-first-workout-top-to-help-women-with-brea/posts

Warriorwear as Daily Duty:

The pauir of The Anti-Pink*

Her mind and her body, working in concert, stopped her cancer.

The pauir Workout Top is the start of Act II for this entrepreneur.

*Anti-Pink: Those not embracing the marketing and the mockery of the message.

The message: LIVE! LOVE! LIFE! ….. and did you work out today?

The pauir Workout Top: Act II for this Cincinnati entrepreneur/fitness fanatic.

[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ Nov. 19, 2014] When Jamie the fitness fanatic was told, with baby Jack barely two months-old in her taut, professionally trained belly, her world didn’t cave in. But it spit out one nasty bitch.

That Jamie Hoffpauir still remains. But she’s has been benched by a new face for this warrior of a woman, one who doesn’t buy Madison Avenue’s version of a cancer “survivor,” and cringes at the very word.

It’s everywhere you look. The survivor franchise is being bought and sold like cattle,” said Pauir.

The reality is cancer is coming out of the shadows, but there is a growing resentment amongst those directly affected with the ‘survivor’ language. It’s time for a change.

“I’m not a survivor. I’m a warrior, and this is my battle. While everyone appreciates the support, there is an individual aspect to this journey that remains unrecognized. These women are the heroes of their own stories, and they don’t need to be saved.”

To this Cincinnati mother of two – Jack made it just fine, he’s now looking at high schools – breast cancer cost her personal relationships, a whole lotta heartbreak, and a profound level of innocence.

Every young mother wants the perfect world for her family. When the real world intervenes, is where the warrior within emerges.

With Hoffpauir, Act II came with a new company, pauir athletic apparel (www.pauirathleticapparel.com), and a line of experience-inspired athletic apparel, generated by the difficulty it took just to get dressed for the gym during recovery.

ENTER THE pauir Workout Top

Jamie’s workouts saved her world. But that didn’t mean putting on the gear got easier, in the midst of surgery, rehab and scar tissue.

Just putting on a workout top was a struggle, and the look teetered between hobo and homeless chic.

We do, however, need the right tools, like functional active wear that will meet our needs throughout the entire journey with cancer,” Pauir said.

The pauir Workout Top is an ally. We’re filling a genuine need while celebrating not just something to wear, but something to believe in.”

The healing that Pauir has delivered, in the form of the pauir Workout Top, is a product that:

  • Is, first and foremost, NOT colored pink;
  • Celebrates the individual warrior within;
  • Fills a functional, clinical void;
  • Offers women style, without the orthopaedics.

The pauir Workout Top is helping people move away from pink. We’re acknowledging the realities that women face in their personal journey with breast cancer by being there for this moment of the day – this very critical moment, the workout, the thing that CAN keep you going,” said Pauir.

Ms. Hoffpauir, now engaged, is not just looking for a high school for Jack. Her ex-husband remains a best friend and consigliere. Her first child, daughter Madison, 17, is now looking at colleges. Madison is also a contributor to the Kickstarter campaign organized to fund the first round of production for the pauir Workout Top.

For details on pauiring up the Kickstarter, please refer to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/scarwearyourstory/pauirthe-first-workout-top-to-help-women-with-brea

We’re not forming any movement, we’re not creating any new cause. We’re providing a product with a real purpose, without the outreach. We’re focusing on the woman as an individual, and heping her reach within, to get across that bridge,” Pauir said.

This is where the real fight takes place, by understanding that once the journey starts, it may not have a tidy ending.”

Bright!Tax goes! BOOM!

Cincy startup Bright!Tax assisting U.S. expats worldwide lifts anchor in NYC, scouts international sites for new 50-man (and woman) HQ

Greg Dewald’s latest entrepreneurial win, and FATCA.

Last year: 50 countries, 500% growth: This year: 110 countries, 500% growth.

Multi award-winning online entrepreneur Dewald, an UpTech! Finalist.

6.5 million Americans overseas, more and more becoming targets of the IRS.

[NEW YORK, NY and CINCINNATI, OH ~ Oct. 16, 2014] Trust?

In whom do American expatriates trust?

No longer their Swiss bankers.

Nor bankers from any other country, for that matter.

Not since U.S. regulators have begun targeting every bank account worldwide maintained by Americans living and working overseas. And these are highly professional individuals: diplomats, scientists, physicians and corporate executives, as well as missionaries and military contractors.

Just this summer, the U.S. Treasury Department unleashed a regulatory tsunami upon U.S. citizens living and working abroad, the Foreign Accounts and Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).

Uncle Sam and President Obama haven’t exactly spelled out “FATCAT,” but they’re only one letter off. And though their initial interest was to target the 1 percent with significant “quiet” offshore holdings, the average American expat has, unfortunately, been caught in the crosshairs.

At Bright!Tax, we feel that American expats, for the most part, are American heroes,” said Greg Dewald, principal and founder of Bright!Tax (www.brighttax.com), a cloud-based income tax prep service serving U.S. expatriates.

In the era of globalization, they represent the best of what the United States projects onto the world stage. At the very least, they deserve to be treated fairly and with a respect that reflects the contributions they make for the greater good.”

Bright!Tax exists solely to assist American expats with their U.S. tax filing obligation by providing simple, secure and reliable online U.S. tax preparation services that heretofore were simply unavailable,” Dewald said.

There are about 6.5 million Americans living and working overseas, most of whom are still on the hook for filing federal taxes every year, and many of them are simply unaware of their obligation to do so.

They’re assessed on worldwide income, and unless they haven’t renounced U.S. citizenship and returned their passport, expats must file federal taxes every year, as if they lived in Blue Ash or Covington. The IRS penalties for not filing taxes range from $10,000 to $100,000.

UP NEXT: THE FIRST BRIGHT!TAX INTERNATIONAL HQ FACILITY

With his visionary brand of entrepreneurialism, Dewald is a lifelong achiever who previously owned and ran Opera Inc., an nationally renowned designer of trade show exhibits based in Erlanger, Ky.

While leading Opera, Dewald and his staff of over 50 engaged clients nationwide in a cloud-based design and production process, a platform that singed the potential of web commerce and its commercial potential on his frontal lobe, and thus, led to Bright!Tax.

Bright!Tax is a virtual company, save for its data center in New York, which will be relocated early next year to the first international headquarters. An international site search has narrowed the company’s options to office facilities in London, Belgium, Singapore or Hong Kong.

We anticipate making a decision sometime this fall, with the goal of opening the first international headquarters for Bright!Tax in January of 2015,” Dewald said.

All employees currently work remotely; all BrightTax front-office, back-office, communications and infrastructure originate in the company’s cloud-based architecture. Dewald currently lives in Argentina and Covington.

The first international headquarters will house the Bright!Tax data center as well as Dewald’s HQ offices and an as-yet undetermined number of staff. Currently, Bright!Tax employs 10 CPAs working remotely from their individual office facilities across the U.S.; expansion plans call for 25 CPAs over the next two years, and as many as 50 over the next five years.

This is what we’re preparing for, that’s the growth that we’ve seen and the future potential of Bright!Tax is amazing,” Dewald said. “Our goal is to come to scale and to grab a major chunk of this burgeoning industry. 

“It’s an opportunity for us to introduce excellence into this space, and to display our true passion, which is our near-fanatical commitment to client happiness and satisfaction.”

SERVICE, KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE: THE BRIGHT!TAX CUSTOMER SPEAKS

Far beyond satisfied – which we are – Greg and his team at Bright!Tax were a tremendous relief,” said Lauren Cleaver, an American expat who owns and runs The Iguana Lodge (www.iguanalodge.com) in Costa Rica with her husband Tom.

Bright!Tax was timely, informed, and friendly. We were frightened at what the IRS could do to us. We no longer have that fear.”

Bright!Tax is poised to provide immediate relief to the complicated headache that U.S. expat taxes have become. For more information, please call Bright!Tax at (212) 465-2528, visit www.brighttax.com or send a message to email_inquiries@brighttax.com.
