How many of you want to write a book?  How many of you started writing a book or two, but never finished.  I hate to say it, but I fall into the latter category. 

I have spoken to so many people that think about writing a book, get overwhelmed, and it never gets from your head to paper. 

That’s where a ghostwriter comes in.

Today I had a great conversation with Laura Gale, Ghostwriter on how a ghostwriter can help get your idea onto the page, the process of publishing and so many other insights.  It’s a lesson to get your idea from your head to a published book.

Please join us for a stimulating conversation.

Death and Taxes.  Yes, you heard me death and taxes. My parents always told me those are the only two things that are guaranteed in life. As individuals, when getting that dreaded tax notice in the mail we panic! 

Now, imagine your business gets one or even 1,000 tax or compliance notices from the feds, state, local, or any one of numerous agencies around the world.  Don’t panic yet!

My guest has a solution for you. Rick Pinkerman, CEO of NoticeNinja, a SaaS-based CRM for tax notice compliance is here with me today to talk about converting his existing enterprise software to a SaaS model for tax notice management to ensure your tax and compliance notices are not the death of your business.
