TIP OF THE WEEK
Mark: My tip of the week as good as Scott’s is not really going to save you any money on your taxes, which again is your biggest expense as a business owner. To learn more, go to cpsllcms.com. Working with these guys is just one of the greatest experiences in my life.
Scott: Check out this book, Advertising Headlines That Make You Rich: Create Winning Ads, Web Pages, Sales Letters, and More by David Garfinkel. Read it and learn!
Todd: My tip would be a book by Walt Dallas that I co-authored called Capital Crusaders, it has great insights. We take all of the techniques that we do, and we have it leveled how they work. It’s 12 Chapters, easy to read and it’s conversational.
Dustin: My tip of the week is to look inside the CARES Act and there are some deductions that were not available previously, especially for mails. So you can look at the CARES Act and see if you took any business mails that will now be 100% deductible with the passing of the CARES Act.
