14 – Proactive Tax Planning

Today, I talk with Craig Cody, a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and tax coach about proactive tax planning. What is it? How do you do it?

If you’re like me, every time you write a check to the government, it hurts. It hurts a lot – that money was hard earned and it’s crazy how much you end up sending to the government.

Proactive Tax Planning

Craig regularly saves his clients tens of thousands of dollars on their taxes each year just by being proactive and smart about how they run their business and organize their life.

You can contact Craig by emailing him at craig at ccodycpa.com or calling his office at (516) 869-4051.

13 – Change of Pace

In this episode, I share that HVACLadder episodes will be a little more spaced out. I’ve been putting a LOT of time into Fieldstone Service Management and other consulting efforts and don’t want the quality of HVACLadder to suffer so I’m slowing the pace down a bit.
