Episode 119. Tax Strategies: What every business owner wants to know

Apr 25, 2024

Sten sits down with Mike Jesowshek, a CPA and entrepreneur, to discuss the gap between knowing tax strategies and implementing them.

Mike’s journey is nothing short of inspiring. From starting his first business at 14 to pioneering a digital accounting firm, he’s a testament to where passion and expertise can take you. In their chat, he peeled back the curtain on his transition from online marketing to becoming a tax strategy virtuoso.

Mike stressed the importance of the power of simplicity by breaking down complex tax concepts into bite-sized, understandable pieces. Imagine using a Health Savings Account as a retirement tool or the benefits of hiring your children and funding Roth IRAs – these are just a couple of the strategies they dove into.

They also tackled the art of communication in the financial advisory world. It’s not just about what you say, but how you say it. Advisors need to challenge the status quo, ditch the generic newsletters, and really engage clients with compelling, clear information.

Ever heard of hiring your kids but felt too overwhelmed to implement it? You’re not alone. We discussed why many business owners know the strategies but don’t act on them. It’s about giving you the confidence and the nudge to take that next step – and that’s where advisors shine.

They also discussed the importance of sharing knowledge openly with clients. By not shying away from sharing information, advisors can build trust and provide immense value, showcasing how tailored tax strategies can significantly impact a client’s financial health.
