    Tackling the fundamental question asked by all taxpayers - How can I save on taxes? - attorney and CPA Mark J. Kohler empowers you to dismiss standard CPA viewpoints like "your tax payment is what it is" and "you just make too much money." Simplified through the mastery of storytelling, Kohler invites you to immerse yourself in the compelling tale of a typical family's tax awakening. Through their journey, you'll discover critical but underutilized tax strategies to achieve huge tax savings.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It is hard to write a book about tax strategies and I give Mr. Kohler credit with the creativity of telling a story. The reviews on Amazon were much more positive so it may be a book that needs to be read. The sound quality was not up to usual standards although the author gave it his best, there should have been some editing. I found the story moved too slow with a payoff that was less then I hoped for.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked that the PDF for Appendix B was available and that will be a good visual resource.
    I believe the recommendations to start a business andor do rental Real Estate is solid but takes a great deal of work.
    The major opinion on the self directed IRA as something "the Wall Street Machine" does not want you to know about is very questionable advice. Financial planners and investment people make less but CPAs and custodians make a lot more. I am not saying it can not work; but after researching it for my clients, there are many fees, traps, and hassles...be careful! It sounds great in theory to start a business or buy property inside a qualified account but you still have to follow through on making money. The great part of investing is you put up the capital and others do the work!

    Why do only a few people get to say "I love my job?" It seems unfair that finding fulfillment at work is like winning a lottery; that only a few lucky ones get to feel valued by their organizations, to feel like they belong. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders are creating environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things.

    Where does Leaders Eat Last rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    good book and interesting topics. Very obvious bias from what politics he chose to discuss. I do not mind a little politics, but why keep reinforcing that democrats are better than republicans by the leaders you pick. You are good enough that you do not need to press your agenda.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bravo


    Which character – as performed by Simon Sinek – was your favorite?

    Bravo
