Tax Help Secret: Avoiding the Entreprenuers Curse
Your days as an entrepreneur and businessperson are consumed with one primary activity; making money. Whether you think in terms of growing your business, getting the word out there, or some fancy new marketing technique, your days and weeks and months in business are focused on that one group of activities. In fact, some of you are marketing machines.
Maybe you've developed a new product line. Or, set up a joint venture with a new partner. If you're a real estate investor, you're looking for another deal or strategy for locating under-valued properties.
No matter how you break it down, entrepreneurs are single-focused. MAKE MORE MONEY. You live it, you breath it and you sleep it.
I call it the entrepreneur's curse.
Don't get me wrong. It's not completely bad. In fact, the most singly focused people I know are the most successful. But building your business up can't be your only focus.
There are two BIG reasons why.
Taxes and Lawsuits.
Left unmanaged taxes and lawsuits will eat you alive. Taxes do it slowly but surely. They chip away at your net worth a little at a time. It can be so subtle, that you've stopped noticing. Let's face it, when was the last time you looked at your pay stub (yes, even if you're self-employed). There's one line of income and three lines of taxes (Fed, State and FICA) they're alone. But when was the last time you really noticed it?
You've been conditioned not to care. But every dollar that you overpay in taxes is a lost opportunity to build wealth. Think about it; if someone handed you $10,000 or $20,000 to invest in your business, couldn't you leverage the heck out of it?
Maybe you'd buy a piece of (almost) no money down real estate and flip it for $20,000 profit.
Or launch an ad campaign - radio or print.
Or start a web marketing campaign.
Whatever your strategy of choice, you would parlay that money into something bigger and compound the returns on top of it. But if you throw that money away by unnecessarily overpaying your taxes, it's gone. (Remember, a penny saved is a penny earned) And so is the opportunity. Forever. What a shame!
Then there's lawsuits. They mess you up differently. If taxes steal away your money in the night, lawsuits are like a tiger. Waiting. Stalking. Circling. And then, at the opportune moment - BAM! It's over. They pounce on you and you don't even know what hit you.
It might be an angry tenant, or the passenger in a car that you ran into. It could be your spouse or a disgruntled employee. It could be any one of a thousand reasons that people can sue you (there are millions of lawsuits each year).
Whatever the reason, before you can fully regain the use of your senses, you're upside down and inside out. And it can take years before you can pull yourself up by the bootstraps and start over again.
Then, you find you're digging yourself out of a big hole. It doesn't have to be that way. There is a better way. A way for you to build consistent protected wealth that lasts for generations.
That's what my new Wealth Accumulation program is all about. The last thing I want to see is you work for years building a great asset base - only to have someone bring it toppling down. It's not necessary and you deserve better than that.
