This week’s guest on the Crushing Debt Podcast is one I’ve been trying to get on the show since its inception, so I am so excited to have him on finally!

Charles Shapero is the owner of Widget Bookkeeping & Tax, where his mission is to help his clients pay the lowest amount of tax legally possible using his knowledge of the Internal Revenue Code and his 20+ years experience as a CPA.  I met Charles around 2006 at a real estate investor meeting, and we have been friends and referral partners since.

In today’s episode of the podcast, we talk about the good and bad of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (which some people call the Trump Tax Cuts). Love him, like him or hate him, the new Tax Act has some pros and cons, including:

  • Pro - lowers tax brackets
  • Pro - increases the standard deduction
  • Pro - child tax credit
  • Pro - qualified business income credit
  • Con - decrease in personal exemptions
  • Con - Tax deduction caps

Make sure that with the change in the laws, you have your tax planning performed by a CPA that understands both the benefits and drawbacks to the law, so that you pay the lowest amount of tax legally possible.

To contact Charles, email him at Charles@WidgetCPA.com, visit his website at www.WidgetCPA.com, connect with him on Facebook, or call his office 727-953-9493.

This week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast is my interview with Adam Ulery and Kevin Galang, Tech Guys Who Invest.

I had the honor to be guest number one on the Tech Guys Who Invest Podcast a while back and wanted to return the favor by having the guys on my show.

Adam invests mostly in multi-family properties and Kevin invests mostly in promissory notes. They both invest as a way to get passive income, cash flow, out of debt, and live the lifestyle they choose. They also both have careers in technology.

You'll hear about Adam and Kevin's attitudes towards debt and a few stories about how they got into and out of debt.

To learn more about them, visit www.TGWIPodcast.com or contact them at TechGuysWhoInvest@gmail.com.  Also check out Kevin's second show - Secondhand Success - at www.secondhandsuccess.com

If you want to share a story of how you got into and then out of debt, please visit the website at www.YesnerLaw.com or email me at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com. If you enjoyed this episode, I would really appreciate if you would share the content on Facebook, LinkedIn or any other social media site!

This week's podcast was inspired by our friend and Realtor Tom Scaglione, an agent at Future Home Realty.

https://www.facebook.com/tom.scaglione

Tom has forgotten more about the Tampa Bay Real Estate market than most Realtors will ever know.

Tom posted about the various laws that passed during the 2019 FL Legislative Session like:

  • Legislation related to expired or old permits
  • Approval of remote notaries
  • Changing insurance AOB
  • Apportioning money for environmental projects and affordable housing
  • Flood insurance changes
  • Tree trimming legislation
  • Texting while driving ban

And some legislation that didn't pass like:

  • Short term rental legislation
  • Emotional support animal legislation
  • Seller and Landlord disclosure laws

Did you follow the 2019 FL Legislature?  What laws would you like to see enacted?  Which should be eliminated?  Share your thoughts with me directly at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com.

In this week’s episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, I interview Linda McElhaney.

Currently, Linda works as a purchasing manager at Freedom Square Nursing. As a side-gig or side-hustle, Linda started a Mary Kay business and is now working on being a Director.

Some benefits of having her Mary Kay business, Linda has:

  • Learned to Budget, Plan and set Goals;
  • Grown as a person and professional;
  • Has Extra money;
  • Paid down debts; and
  • Taken vacations.

In fact, Linda has paid off over $4,500 in credit card debt in a short period of time, and saved money for an extended vacation overseas.

Incidentally, Linda’s husband also transitioned his love of CrossFit into his own business that now helps support the family.

To speak to Linda about setting up an Mary Kay party, please call 631-766-4459.

If you have questions on turning your side-gig into a full time job, you can also contact me at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com.
