I met Stephanie Heredia from an email she sent me describing the Entrepreneur Center Program on Campus at the University of Tampa (something she is involved with for her business).

Immediately, Stephanie struck me as an entrepreneur on the rise.  Her company is www.taxestampa.com where she helps individuals and business owners with bookkeeping and tax preparation services.  You can reach Stephanie at Stephanie@taxestampa.com

From its website: The John P. Lowth Entrepreneurship Center in the Sykes College of Business teaches skills that are critical for today‚Äôs entrepreneur. Learning to identify opportunities, prepare executable business plans and hone skills through a combination of classroom study and applied learning, makes our program unique. Entrepreneurship education is the fastest growing field of study in the United States, with entrepreneurs projected to be the group that creates vigorous and sustained economic development worldwide. 

Stephanie and I talk about entrepreneurship, and also mistakes students make in filing their tax returns, including: whether or not to file, whether to pay sales tax in their business, and money management.

If you have questions about taxes or bookkeeping, reach out to Stephanie, or contact me for other professionals in my network.  www.yesnerlaw.com, shawn@yesnerlaw.com

This week's guest on the Crushing Debt Podcast is going to take two episodes to fully cover all of the great content.  However, if you want some behind-the-scenes topics we didn't cover on either show, please visit my YouTube Channel to see some bonus content.

My guest is my friend, Dale Appell of the Dale Appell Law Group, and www.wefightforjustice.com.  You can contact Dale by email at Dale@wefightforjustice.com.

Dale is a 1989 graduate of Duke Law School, and a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Barrister Association - meaning he has won verdicts totaling over $1 million (on a single case).

Dale and I talk about Asset Protection, and how to shield yourself from an attorney like him trying to take your assets after obtaining a personal injury judgment against you. We also talk about what you should do after an accident.

If you're in an accident, call Dale for assistance and let him know that you heard about him from the Crushing Debt Podcast, or contact me for an introduction to Dale - www.Yesnerlaw.com or Shawn@Yesnerlaw.com

In this week's episode, I talk about an exciting new project from Crushing Debt (you'll have to listen, although I've dropped a few social media hints).

However, I do make an offer for you (my listeners) to be involved in this new project by shooting me an email to Shawn@YesnerLaw.com.

To continue to provide additional content, I give you my take on 1031 Exchanges and how those can impact real estate closings.  I am not a qualified intermediary, nor are we tax attorneys or CPA's, but I have done enough 1031 exchanges in my day to understand the law behind the exchange of like-kind properties to defer the taxable gain on the sale.

Last week's episode was about reverse mortgages.  This week's episode of the podcast features Jeannine Smith, loan officer with Fairway Independent Mortgage, and we discuss mortgages in general.

Jeannine's email address is Jeannine.Smith@fairwaymc.com and her website is www.jsmithmortgage.com. Jeannine has been in the mortgage industry for about 12 years, since 2006.

Buying a house is easier than you might think. Jeannine and I dispel myths, like how much you may need in a downpayment, and how your credit score impacts your ability to get a mortgage. We also talk about best practices and what you can do to better qualify for a loan.

Fairway Mortgage is a lender offering a range of products. Jeannine is focused on helping Veterans obtain VA loans, and educating those who might qualify on the pros and cons of that, and other, loan products.

You can get ahold of Jeannine at the links above, or contact us at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com. What are some other myths you have about mortgages that we can help dispel?
