The Tax Storm Is Here! –  Episode 166

The Tax Storm Is Here! – Episode 166

What is our government doing?! Printing trillions of dollars and more trillions of dollars might (will) not end well for us. Hyperinflation, the ultimate tax has arrived. Higher taxes will create more and more of a chasm between the rich and poor as it obliterates the middle class.

Branding & Marketing with Bill West – Episode 164

Branding & Marketing with Bill West – Episode 164

Bill West with Bareknuckle Brand Marketing is my guest. I asked Bill to come on my show as a guest due to my gratitude for the work he and his team did for me approximately 7 years ago. As business owner, there are times (sometimes too many times), we have to do a lot of things that we do not enjoy as business owner. I love hosting this podcast every week. I love helping my clients every day. However, I do not care for a lot of the minutiae, we business owners/entrepreneurs have to deal with to survive and be successful.

One weekend this year, working again on a Saturday, I was a little down in the dumps, looked up from my desk, and saw my awesome Bankosaurus® smiling at me. I then looked at my Joey the T-Rex logo, and was happy again and filled with gratitude. I immediately sent Bill an email asking if he would like to come on this podcast to see how he could help other entrepreneurs/business owners succeed with their branding and marketing. It all begins with branding and if it was not for “The Code” process that Bill and his team put me through, I would not have my Joey the T-Rex or the Bankosaurus® to share with the world!

Health Savings Accounts (HSA)  – Episode 163

Health Savings Accounts (HSA) – Episode 163

I discuss one of the most boring topics in the world: health insurance. However, it’s important to have to protect your health and wealth. My favorite health insurance plan is the Health Savings Plan (HSA) used with a qualifying High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). It can be a great strategy to get income tax deductions and income tax-free growth for your savings to be used for your health/medical expenses.

The importance of vacation: taking a day off, a few days off, maybe a week off with family and friends. You need to give yourself permission to relax. When you do, not only will you have a great time off, the coolest ideas for your profession will present themselves to you — which you can implement when you’re back at work.
