Tax Time Tips for Real Estate Investors

Well, we’re get­ting close to that time of year again where taxes need to be filed and paid. If you own any busi­ness or real estate, you don’t really get to keep any more money than if you earned a pay­cheque. Money doesn’t seem to work that way.

He’s just a guy…

Fol­low­ing yesterday’s arti­cle on over­com­ing the men­tal bar­rier of “large num­bers” this one focuses on another men­tal bar­rier peo­ple need to over­come. As I said yes­ter­day, my first con­tract out of school was work­ing for the gov­ern­ment. My super­vi­sor hap­pened to be a guy who reported to the deputy min­is­ter, so in the hier­ar­chy of …

Run the Numbers Part 2

Yesterday’s arti­cle got me think­ing about Run­ning the Num­bers, so here is another way to apply the think­ing… When my wife started out in the eques­trian busi­ness we looked at the num­bers. It takes a lot of money to start up an eques­trian busi­ness, and our research showed that the best run sta­bles only tend …

Don’t take “No” for an answer.

Now, first off, let me say I’m not a big fan of Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank or any ver­sion of the idea. That being said, I do occa­sion­ally watch the show when I’m chan­nel surf­ing. It was dur­ing one of these surf­ing fests that I stum­bled across Dragon’s Den UK and the inspi­ra­tion for this article. …

Protect Your Reputation, it’s all you really have

When you run a com­pany, there are many things you con­trol such as pric­ing, qual­ity, what you choose to pro­duce, etc. Often though, the one thing com­pa­nies for­get to con­trol is their rep­u­ta­tion. There is the old say­ing, “The cus­tomer is always right”, but I don’t really believe that in all sense of the expression. …
