The days of most taxpayers sitting down with a pencil and a calculator to figure out their taxes are long gone. In 2014, the tax code topped 4 million words which is longer than the Bible. Now in 2015, The Affordable Care Act has added an additional level of complexity to our existing tax code so regular hard-working taxpayers are flocking to paid tax professionals for convenience and peace of mind more than ever.
“Individuals in the U.S. will spend nearly 6 billion…Continue

This has been a very troubling last couple of weeks for me. I thought that we had progressed as a society beyond the point where we were stereotyping individuals based on our views of the world. Along with the rest of the world we watched the events unfold in reaction to New York, Ferguson, Cleveland and Phoenix. I was following a thread on Facebook in which a fellow member of the National Speakers Association was denied the opportunity to bring his powerful message to a University Campus…Continue

Is this a fair indication of your management style? If you still operate under the notion that your employees have a job to do.

As a manger, you firmly believe in command and control style of corporate…Continue

On the way to the Veterinarian’s for an emergency run, we passed a church whose billboard stated “You can’t see the picture, if you are inside the frame.” The statement clearly applies to both our organizations and the dichotomy that exists in almost every workplace on the face of this globe we call earth.
Taiichi Ohno, the creator of the Toyota Production System, charged his managers with standing in a circle and observing the organization in real time. If we take Ohno’s charge in to…Continue
