Navigating the Letting Go

We all know how hard it is to find quality talent. Generally speaking, we hire too quickly and fire too slowly. As many of us start to have aging workforces, we need to be mindful of what they want or need and what is best for the business.

Preparing Your Business for Tax Season


Date: Wednesday, October 19, 2016 

Time: 9:00 am - 9:45 am PDT

Preparing for tax season is a yearlong activity--it isn’t just preparing your tax return. We’ll cover how the expensing of assets now includes qualified real estate, whether retirement plans should be implemented before December 31, 2016 and if you can be classified as a “Manufacturer,” which could potentially qualify you for receiving 9% of your profits tax-free. The webinar will also discuss how foreign businesses that own or work with U.S. businesses can consider arbitrating the various tax rates.

Presented by Steven Bankler - Owner, Steven Bankler, CPA, Ltd.

I initially joined TAB to learn how to better deal with ‘me.’ I perceived myself as a primary obstacle to growth. With TAB, I got plenty of ideas on how to view myself and the business differently and this has definitely improved my business. I learned that my business plan is a living document and track it periodically using the monthly progress report. In short, TAB has helped me design business processes that are more systematic, efficient and get results.

Being in business for the last 25 years and then joining my TAB board, I’ve seen such an improvement in my management style and effectiveness. TAB is a great resource for me, the information and the experience with small businesses as well as the insights shared.

For us, it’s all about generating clients. And how we’ve gone about generating those clients with the help of TAB has really been key to our ongoing success. I knew that I needed a sounding board, needed some outside expertise. And that’s exactly what TAB brings to the table. And it also holds my feet to the fire and keeps me accountable.Kalar is a patient and inquisitive listener who seeks a thorough understanding of the root origins and causes of issues before collaborating on potential solutions. He also helps me to consider "out of the box" type solutions and opportunities that invariably expand my thinking. With his help and guidance, we have resolved numerous tactical and strategic issues and positioned our company for significant growth.

TAB helps you recognize that pretty much everybody has the same type of issues with their business. It clears your head and it re-energizes you. When I leave a tab board meeting I’m re-energized to conquer not only that day, but the next year. TAB helps us focus on ourselves and the other TAB members…the answer is sometimes written on your forehead and you just need a mirror to be able to read that answer.
