The Ultimate Guide to Paying Less Taxes on Your Business, Freelance Gig or Side Hustle
If you ask normal people on the street what the best ways to save taxes are, you’ll usually get one of two answers: Your home, or your 401k.
BUT, if you ask any TRUE tax professional that same question, you’ll get the same answer every single time: Owning a business, no matter how big or small.
Why? Because almost all of the tax laws were written for the self-employed individual. Every big business (like Apple, Facebook, or Google) was once a small business that got started in somebody’s dorm, garage or at their kitchen table.
However, most business owners leave THOUSANDS of dollars of savings on the table each years because they do NOT take the time to understand what the rules are….and their accountant is too busy to explain all of the available deductions to them.
Or even a few of them, for that matter......
The tax code is over 77,000 pages long (!!!), but only about 30 of them explain the taxes that you need to pay.
The rest of the 76,970 pages show you all the exceptions to the rules, and how to lower your taxes,
….but most CPA’s focus their time on the 30 pages that say what you have to pay, and NOT on how to save money.
If you have your own business, you need my new course.
This course will show you EXACTLY how to legally maximize every single deduction you are entitled to, so that YOU get to keep more of YOUR money.
WARNING: This course isn’t for everyone. It is specifically designed for people that live in the US and are self-employed, have a side hustle, or are about to start a business.
If that does NOT apply to you, don’t worry: I will have several more general business and financial courses coming in the next few months that WILL be useful for you.
BUT, if you own a business, and you want to pay less taxes, this is the course for you.
(By the way, I tried to do this as a book, but frankly, taxes are so complicated it was a mess. So, instead, I’ve designed it as a course so I can explain both the strategy, the tax code that allows it, AND how to implement the strategy in your business. Plus, you can ask questions about anything that you do not understand).
Here’s how it works:
Over the course of 8 to 10 weeks, I’ll walk you through every aspect of the tax code that applies to you, and show you EXACTLY how to use it to your advantage, in plain English so you completely understand it, and can implement what applies in your own business to save thousands of dollars at tax time next year.
Best of all, every class will be recorded and transcribed; so if you miss a class, don’t worry about it. You’ll also be able to go back and review classes or the transcript again as your business grows and evolves.
The first class is this Friday, July 10th.
Once the basic classes have been recorded, we will be switching to monthly office hours and case studies. Basically, I’ll go through a case study for 30 minutes or so, explain any new changes to the rules, and then I’ll answer every one of your questions for as long as they last.
If you want to be one of my case studies, all you have to do is ask. If you’re selected, you’ll get getting the equivalent of a thousand-dollar tax makeover at no extra charge.
And, even if you’re NOT selected, you will still learn from the other cases studies how to apply these rules in the real world.
You’re also going to get checklists of each and every step that you can use to make sure you don’t miss ANYTHING.

I’ve priced this at $297, which is less than you’d pay for one hour of my tax consulting time.
However, I’m doing an ‘early-bird’ special of $97 for the first people to respond, and as a way of putting my best foot forward with my first product launch.
Just enter the discount code typo, since I'm posting this on a Sunday and my assistant isn't here to save me.
And, I’m hoping you’ll be completely blown away, and want the other courses I’ll be putting out soon enough too.
Here’s all I ask in return for the discount: once you’ve learned several tips and have seen for yourself that power of this information, please leave a 5 star review.
That’s our deal.
What about a guarantee?
Here it is:
My 100%, No Questions Asked, Take-It-To-The-Bank Guarantee:
I personally guarantee that if you use the information I present, you WILL save thousands of dollars on your taxes.
If you don’t, I’ll refund the entire cost of the course.
How’s THAT for fair?
You have NOTHING to lose, and everything to gain.
So, if you are self-employed, own a business, are a freelancer, or have a side hustle, this is THE course for you.
Imagine: rather than getting a bill each year with what you owe, you actually get money back.
Money that you can invest, blow, or just plain keep in the bank for a rainy day.
The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to.
As former IRS commissioner Mark Everson admitted, ‘If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it. That’s money down the drain for millions of Americans.’
