Renowned soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian, retired internist George Messerlian, and local arts benefactor Marta Babson have been elected to the Board of Directors for Community Arts Music Association (CAMA) of Santa Barbara. The elections took place December 12, 2018 (for Ms. Bayrakdarian and Dr. Messerlian), and January 24 (for Ms. Babson).   “We are very pleased to have these talented and accomplished individuals serve on our Board,” said CAMA Executive Director Mark Trueblood. “We value their leadership, insight, and experience, and look forward to their continued advocacy and involvement with the organization. We are very fortunate to have them.” Ms. Bayrakdarian’s career was launched in 1997, when she was named a winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions – the same year she graduated from the University of Toronto cum laude with a biomedical engineering degree. In 1999 she appeared in Lyric Opera of Chicago’s world premiere production of William Bolcom’s A View from the Bridge, and the following year she won first prize in Plácido Domingo’s prestigious Operalia competition. Subsequent engagements have included San Francisco Opera, the Metropolitan Opera, and many others throughout North America and Europe. As a concertizer, she has appeared with the premier orchestras of New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paris, London, Vienna, and Montreal. Ms. Bayrakdarian’s extensive recording catalog includes a turn as featured vocalist on the Grammy-award winning soundtrack of the blockbuster film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and her numerous honors include four consecutive Juno Awards (Canada’s Grammy equivalent) for Best Classical Album. Now a faculty member in the Department of Music at UC Santa Barbara, she has been hailed as an “electrifying” performer by The New York Times. In 2017 she performed as Vixen Sharp Ears in Opera Santa Barbara’s production of The Cunning Little Vixen, and was awarded the “Movses Khorenatsi” medal, the Republic of Armenia’s highest cultural award. Born and raised in El Monte, California, Dr. Messerlian earned his bachelor’s degree at UCLA before graduating with honors from Chicago Medical School. After completing his internship and residency at Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center, he specialized in internal medicine at Sansum Clinic from 1977 until his retirement 2017. In addition to CAMA, Dr. Messerlian and his wife Sally support Sansum Clinic and All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, where he serves as a lay eucharistic minister. Born in Chicago, Ms. Babson moved with her family to Montecito at age 3 and attended Cold Springs School and Crane Country Day School. After graduating from Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism, she worked at Crocker National Bank in Santa Barbara before returning to Chicago for a position at Harris Bank and later L Cartwright & Co, where she served as an analyst, trader, and market maker. She maintains residences in Chicago and Montecito. In Chicago, Ms. Babson has served on the Woman’s Board of Rush University Medical Center, has been a Board member for Goodman Theatre and the Chicago Symphony, and is a lifetime member of the Art Institute of Chicago. In Santa Barbara, she supports the Music Academy of the West, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and UCSB Arts & Lectures, as well as CAMA. CAMA’s centennial concert season continues May 6 with a performance by legendary cellist Mischa Maisky at The Lobero Theatre. The organization will present a “100th Birthday Bash,” a free, all-community event, from 1 to 4 pm on May 19 at the Courthouse Sunken Garden. For more information, call (805) 966-4324 or email info@camasb.org. CAMA is Santa Barbara’s oldest arts organization, and is presenting its 100th concert season in 2018-19. CAMA’s mission is to enrich the city’s cultural life by bringing live performances by world-renowned classical artists and orchestras of the highest artistic excellence to our community and by providing creative, focused music education programs for individuals of all ages.

Last tax season, the average direct deposit tax refund was more than $3,000. If you are expecting a tax refund this tax season and you’ve been thinking about starting a side hustle or self-employed business, that kind of money can come in handy. It may be just enough cash to help you launch the self-employed business you’ve been thinking about starting. Sometimes, just a few thousand dollars makes all the difference. How can you use your tax refund to start your business? Buying Equipment No matter what type of self-employed business you plan to go into, you’re almost certain to need specialized equipment. At a minimum, you’re likely to need at least a computer, since it’s almost impossible to run any type of business these days without one. You might even need to use some of the cash to launch a web marketing campaign, particularly if a large amount of your business is expected to come from the web. But even beyond a computer, there’s other equipment you may need to use on a more direct level. For example, if you plan to start a landscaping service, you’ll need a lawnmower, a truck, some rakes, and other lawn maintenance equipment. Stocking Up on Inventory Though many self-employed businesses today are service related, you’ll need to purchase inventory with other types of product-related business. Since it can be almost impossible to get financing for inventory, paying by cash may be the only way to get the products and items you need. That will be true whether you’ll need raw materials to make a finished product, or your purchasing already made merchandise from a manufacturer. Having either materials or finished products available in-house will enable faster sales and a quicker buildup of your cash flow. Making a Down Payment on a Business Vehicle Many types of businesses require a specialized vehicle. A mobile dog grooming service or a food truck are excellent examples. And if you’re going to be involved in any type of service business, like home repairs, you’ll certainly need a pickup truck or a van. But even if you don’t need specialized equipment, you may need a new vehicle specifically for your business. Many businesses require significant time on the road, either selling, delivering a product, or even if you are a rideshare driver. While you may be able to do that with your current vehicle, you may also need to trade up to a vehicle that’s more appropriate for the business you’re going into. Not only can using your car for your business assist you in making more money, but you can deduct business use of your car on your taxes. If you buy a new car for your business, you may be able to deduct depreciation of over $40,000 in the first four years of business use. Keeping a Cash Cushion Probably the single factor most underestimated by new self-employed business owners is the length of time it can take to create reliable cash flow from your business. In some businesses, that may happen in a matter of weeks. But months are a far more common outcome. You’ll need cash to cover your living expenses until your cash flow is available to get the job done. An average tax refund may not be sufficient to cover several month’s living expenses, but it will certainly help when added to existing funds. This can turn out to be the single best use of your tax refund. After all, you may be able to purchase equipment through manufacturer financing, and even inventory using a credit card. But you’ll need a healthy amount of cash available to cover living expenses. Parting Thoughts on Your Tax Refund Some people think of a tax refund as “found money” and use it to do something fun. That may mean buying entertainment or paying for a family vacation. While those uses are fine, it may be better to recognize your tax refund as a windfall and use it to generate more income. That’s exactly what you’ll be doing if you invest it in a new self-employed business. Once you have it up and running, it can provide additional cash flow to supplement your household income or something you can do full-time. When you think of it that way, using your tax refund to start a business may be the single best purpose for your tax refund possible. If you’re just starting your business, you can use QuickBooks Self-Employed to track your income, expenses, and mileage year-round. Your self-employed information can then easily export to your TurboTax Self-Employed tax return. TurboTax Self-Employed has an industry-specific deduction feature that will uncover industry-specific deductions that will help you increase your tax refund and save more money for your business. If you have tax questions, you can connect live via one-way video to a TurboTax Live Self-Employed CPA or Enrolled Agent with an average 15 years experience, to get your tax questions answered. TurboTax Live Self-Employed CPAs and Enrolled Agents are available in English and Spanish and can even review, sign, and file your tax return.

Throughout Russell Westbrook’s career it’s been easy to be anti-Russell Westbrook. Although it’s impossible to ignore his game- averaging triple doubles and breaking records all over- it’s been the way he’s carried himself on the court, with the media, and with the fans that’s made him an easy target for haters like me. I’d preach […]
