NEW DISCOVERY YOUR CPA DOESN’T KNOW…

NEW DISCOVERY YOUR CPA DOESN’T KNOW…

I don’t know what would be worse…

 

– writing a big tax check

or

– the day you realized you could have saved on taxes and put it back into your business.

 

Did you know that The Tax Code is 75,000 Pages?

Give me a break! I love to read, but I am not going to read that many pages of legal jargon and neither are you. Did you honestly think your team of accountants, financial advisers, and lawyers have or will…

 

Our Tax Lawyers have.

 

They just don’t have the time, training, and support that it takes to uncover the 71 strategies that may apply to your business

Business Owners

So if you hold yourself and your team to a high standard and want to…

– educate your team

– discover strategies

– mitigate taxes

 

…say when and we can start putting money back into your business and family.

 

Be Great,

Matt Linklater

 

PS. Your business depends on having a great financial team to work for you. Don’t settle and don’t give up.

Is There Value To Being Born Poor

Is There Value To Being Born Poor

The other day we had a meeting with an Hungarian immigrant for what seemed another tax consultation with a small business owner.

 

We walked in and he had an American Flag scarf wrapped around his neck.  One of the first things he said to us was, “Can you tell I love this country?”  He then proceeded to tell us the story of his journey that started in 1968 to make it to this country, he called, “The greatest country.”

 

When he was growing up in Hungry it was under Russia rule.  I know a few Hungarians personally and they say that Hungry always found themselves on the wrong side of history.  When he was 18 years old he started a multi-day trek out of Hungry, illegally.

 

They first came to Yugoslavia.  The worst thing that would have happened there is they would have sent him and his buddies back.  He explained, “That is what they did to refugees back then.”

 

They then came into Italy.  He went on to say, “Italy is not as nice to refugees as Yugoslavia.”  He said, “In Italy they put refugees into camps, and they don’t let you out unless someone sponsors you.”

 

Lastly after a straight 48 hour plus hike through mountains him and his buddies found themselves in a Switzerland police station.  They had to explain why they were here and Switzerland allows refugees from war torn countries.

 

While setting up a young life in Switzerland he quickly learned German to have success within the country.  He has a book coming out on his life’s journey, but somewhere after Switzerland he made his way to Canada and then the US.

 

Now this gentleman has a house, a commercial property and a business in Illinois and a house in California.  I sometimes wonder, after seeing people go to such great lengths to rid themselves of horrifying situations as communism, if there is some power to waking up hungry?

 

If this guy was given comforts that come from living in an affluent family or country would he have made a treacherous hike?  Would he have 3 properties paid off?  Would he have fought tooth and nail to create a thriving business?

 

He did say looking back on that journey he made when he was 18 that he must have been crazy.  Was he crazy or was trip less terrifying than waking up every morning under communism? Now without the crushing feeling of communism certainly the treacherous hike seems daunting.

 

If life is too comfortable we typically will not go to the lengths that we need to go to be successful.  If one handout keeps someone from making treacherous life hikes we all suffer.  Figure out how to put that hunger in yourself and your employees and soon one day we will all reach our loftiest of goals!

Get Out of Your Own Way

Get Out of Your Own Way

“It’s amazing how much we can accomplish if no one cares who gets the credit.”

– John Wooden

 

I’m not sure what this quote means to you? Personally I learned a long time ago that if you allow your ego to guide your intuition you will never truly grow as a leader and your organization will suffer as a result. The ego-centric leader is always looking for the glory and respect.

 

Leaders who succeed at a high level understand the concept of leveraging resources. They seek to maximize every asset and resource they have for the benefit of their organization. When presented with a challenge or new idea they ask themselves three questions…

 
  1. Who is the best person to solve it?

  2. What will it cost?

  3. How much time & money will it save us long term?

If there isn’t somebody on your team that can solve the challenge or execute the new idea don’t stop there…

GRIT & GRIND IT BABY!

GRIT & GRIND IT BABY!

Your ability to lead will reveal how high your ceiling is as a business.

How high is your ceiling?

 

If your leadership is strong your ceiling is high. Leadership has a multiplying effect. It allows you to make better decisions versus just working harder or putting in more hours. Now don’t get me wrong “grinding it out” is an important trait, but it will not allow you and your business to grow exponentially by itself.

 

When organizations are struggling they look to replace the leadership. Likewise, when your business is losing money you hire a new CEO. When sales are down you hire a new salesperson. When you continually pay more in taxes you hire a new CFO or Accountant.

Work ethic without the true characteristics of leadership will hopefully maintain the current status of your business but it will not move it forward.

 

Great Leaders have the uncanny ability to combine work ethic, intelligence and passion to impact an organization to drive it forward day in and day out. Whether it’s customer service, sales, marketing, accounting for the profit and loss or taxes make sure that you have a person with these Leadership Qualities running the show.

 

WORK ETHIC, INTELLIGENCE & PASSION

 

Take a quick inventory of your business. Is there an area where you are lagging? If so, I can almost guarantee you the person leading the way is missing one of these three. It’s time for change.

 

Lead or Get out of the way!

Has The Government Turned Into a “ZERO SUM GAME”?

Has The Government Turned Into a “ZERO SUM GAME”?

Congressman Joe Kennedy III, the 37-year old grandnephew of John F. Kennedy, said the government has turned America into a “zero-sum game” where benefits received by one group must come at the expense of another.

 

He highlighted some examples, and then exclaimed, “We choose both!”

 

What he meant to say is let’s spend more than the $3.3 Trillion we do every year and go further into debt.

 

Let’s break down the numbers….

$458,542,287,311.80     Interest Payments

$2.15 Trillion                    Social Security and Medicare

$720+ Billion                    Defense spending

$3.3 Trillion

-$3 Trillion                        Tax Revenue

-$300 Billion                     In The Hole

 

That’s before they pay for National Parks, Homeland Security, infrastructure, foreign aid, or even paid the electric bill.

 

Plus, the government has $46.7 Trillion Long Term Liabilities.

 

We clearly don’t elect politicians who can understand the magnitude of these problems and challenges.  Instead we elect politician’s who are good sales people and tell us what we want to hear.

 

They remind me of Oprah on her giveaway show…

“You get a car”

“You get a car”

“You get a car”

“You get a humpback whale” (small joke I heard from a comedian :))

 

The reality is someone is going to have to pay?  Who?

You, I, and all of us!

 
 

I say stop being hoodwinked by class warfare and promises from people whose sole purpose is to get elected and get paid by special interests on both sides of the aisle.

 

Here is a list of some of the richest politicians from a list in 2015.  Many of whom never held private sector jobs or didn’t attain this wealth outside the public sector.

 
 

What you need is to take your finances into your own and hands.  We need to understand Washington is the problem not the solution.  Listening to life long politicians from Washington is like putting the fox in charge of security at the hen house. 

 

Get some some great tax advice on how to keep more of your money in your business and in your families pocket.

 

The government hasn’t turned into a “Zero Sum Game”.  The government is the same FAT PIG it always has been.
