If you knew that increasing your sales 17% would double your profit, would you do it?

If you knew why you are always short of cash, would you do something about it?

Of course you would… if you knew.

Success requires business owners to have vision, information and skill, and to exercise good judgement across many disciplines. It is not likely that a single business owner can be highly skilled in all areas of business. However, with the proper guidance and leadership, it is possible for a business to be good in all areas.

Most business owners do not have time to set out a clear vision or to provide guidance because they are trapped by the daily demands of running a business. As Michael Gerber says, owners are too busy working in the business to work on the business.

Martin Holland is joining Adam to stop you from working in your business so you can work on your business.

The Changing Marketing and Growth Trends of the US Auto Industry, With Matt Moore

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on December 1, 2020

Small Business Owners CAN Beat the IRS, With Charles Read

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on November 24, 2020

The Internal Revenue Code (as revised) runs over 5000 pages of fine print. The regulations, manuals and case law fills a substantial library and increases daily.

You cannot ignore the IRS, don’t make that mistake. But just like a defendant representing themselves in court has a fool for a lawyer, a taxpayer who tries to deal with the IRS is a fool.

Anything you say can and will be used against you. You are playing in a game that you don’t know the equipment, the rules, the field or the ball.

It would be like taking a soccer player and throwing him into a pro football locker room with the instructions to get suited up and on the field as a middle linebacker.  He would be completely lost and if he manages to make it on to the field he would be run over and destroyed.

Charles Read is a CPA and US Tax Court Practitioner with more than forty years of tax experience.  His advice to taxpayers is to not talk to the IRS.  Hire a tax professional. Joining Adam, he shares his wisdom on how small business owners should deal with the IRS.


  • Covid tax provisions and how to use them;
  • How to maximize for PPP loan forgiveness;
  • What to do when you receive an IRS notice;
  • Top 5 tips to avoid employment tax penalties;
