Building a business to manage tax and compliance notices

Building a business to manage tax and compliance notices

January 19, 2021

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.

Most, if not all, people can't wait for 2020 to be over.

We all know someone who has been hurt by this pandemic and has gotten COVID-19.

Lost jobs and income, feeling isolated and disconnected, loneliness, and frankly, you just want to hug someone.

But in all of this darkness, there is light. We all want and need to heal!

Today, in this podcast, we explore the power of positivity. To find light in the darkness we ask that you dig deep to find something that you are grateful for and seek words of inspiration for the world for the coming year.

To help us do that, I've invited my friend Leilani Quiray to co-host this inspirational episode, along with a variety of people to share their stories of positivity.

Please join us for this unique 2020, hour-long Business Growth Cafe podcast event to help you heal and lift your spirits.

A Life in Black and White - Challenges the Black Community Face in the Workplace

November 10, 2020

Paul Mitchell, who has been telling his story of  A Life in Black and White: How to Authentically Discuss Race in Business joins me at the Business Growth Cafe.  This is an important discussion!

Because of his life experiences, he is uniquely positioned to provide information and understanding to people of power, primarily White people, to help support better communication and engagement with their employees, families, and expand opportunities to show empathy and compassion to the Black community.

His goal is to help provide information to those who authentically want to learn more about the challenges the black community faces in the workplace and how we can develop a true partnership through genuine understanding and knowledge, to help make our workplaces more collaborative and productive. This is a key time for business leaders to educate themselves on how to have these meaningful conversations with their employees of all races.
