Biggest Business Challenge

Do you know what the biggest business challenge is?

The biggest business challenge today is overwhelm. And you know what happens when there’s too much overwhelm? You start making bad decisions. And you know what happens when you start making bad decisions? It affects your confidence.

One of the biggest breakthroughs that I saw practitioners make in 2018 is to regain their confidence. And how did they regain their confidence? Well, in the tax resolution industry those folks took in as many cases as their marketing was bringing them and they figured out how to do the work.

Watch this week’s video where I share some great tips for you to feel more confident in working within the IRS Representation industry.

Happy Thanksgiving and Thank You from Michael Rozbruch

I know I’ve posted a ton of blog posts during the last several weeks regarding my master class on How to Implement Your Very Own Audit Protection Plan. As a “Thank You” I’ve attached a complimentary link to one of my most popular trainings on the house!

The Power of Intuition

This guest post is by my business partner and wonderful wife, Roslyn Rozbruch. 

The Power of Intuition
The first time I remember using my intuition I was 5 years old. A friend who was the same age encouraged me to go into the apartment complex community dryer. I was told it would be “like a ride” to spin around. I may have been young, but something deep inside me said, “Don’t go in.” Luckily for me, I listened to my gut instinct and ran out of the laundry room instead.

Roslyn's Food for Thought: The Power of IntuitionThe Oxford Dictionary defines intuition as “the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.” Simply put, intuition is knowing without knowing. I’m a highly intuitive person, and I use intuition as a guide for making decisions in my life in the same way that I use logic. Intuition is like a muscle: The more you use it, the stronger it gets. The reason intuition plays a big role in my decision-making is because it has, for the most part, always been right. That’s a pretty bold statement, but it’s true. When I get an instinctive feeling about something, I share it with Michael like it is a fact. But I also add as a disclaimer, “I don’t know all of the facts, or I might be wrong, but when was the last time I was wrong about an instinct?” Remember, I’ve been consistently using this muscle since at least the age of 5 — my arm muscles should be this toned!

And to be clear, an instinctive feeling is different than something I wish to be true. Sometimes, a thought will just pop into my mind that is either a solution to a problem, an idea for my business, or something I need to do in my life. Other times, it’s something I feel within myself. Besides using it for saving my life (on more than that one dryer incident), I’ve used intuition for big decisions. One example is the three times Michael and I’ve bought and sold our homes. Three times, we bought low and sold high, and the decision was made in a short window of time — all from a strong hunch I had.

While most artistic people use intuition in their creative process, many successful business people do, too. It played a big role in Steve Jobs’ life, and one of his many quotes on the subject is, “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Here’s the thing: We all have intuition. Some people choose not to use theirs. Instead, they turn it off like a faucet or pull it down like a window shade and ignore it. Those people only rely on logic for making their decisions. Then, there is a group of people who hear their instinctive messages but don’t act on them. Those individuals might want to act on their intuition, but they are afraid to. They are afraid that they might be wrong and the consequences won’t be worth the risk.

Here’s my question for you: What kind of person are you? Do you use your instincts on a regular basis? Have you turned it off or are you afraid to use your instincts even though you want to? It’s something to think about, because if you do decide to tune in to yourself and listen to those flash or instinctive messages, you might be surprised to learn how right they are and how much ‘Knowing without Knowing’ is already inside you.

After Tax Season: Getting Paid for Follow-up Work

Tax Practitioners: The Extension deadline has just passed!

In the next few weeks you’re going to start receiving those pesky IRS and State notices on behalf of your clients that you just filed tax returns for. And if you’re like 80% of the practitioners I speak to you’re going to be handling that follow-up work for free. You’re not going to charge for it. And here are some of the reasons why you’re not going to charge for it:

Number one: You think the client thinks that that’s included in their tax preparation fee, but we all know that’s not true.

Number two: You’re worried that if you do charge, the client’s going to think you’re nickel and diming them and you’ll lose the client.

What if I told you there’s a way to get paid for 100% of that work?

Not some of the time, but ALL the time!

I’m doing a Free Master Class Training
On Thursday, November 9th at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern

  • I’m going to show you how to get paid for every single minute you spend on doing that follow-up work without sending out billing statements.
  • I’m going to show you how you can systematically enroll 85-96% of your clients in your very own audit protection plan that guarantees you get paid for all post-follow-up work.

Tax Resolution Practitioners: Do You Have The Right Mindset?

Having the right mindset will lead to all the things that you want in life. One of the biggest things for me was to overcome fear of failure. I was in fear when I started my tax resolution business nearly 18 years ago. I was in fear when I started Roz Strategies over 3-1/2 years ago. And let me tell you how I think about fear: Fear is a mile high, a mile long and paper thin. All you need to do is poke your finger through it and you’re on the other side.

As practitioners, as accountants, as CPAs, EAs and attorneys, we tend to over analyze things before we start something.

I call it the paralysis of analysis.

We over analyze every single thing there is about a new opportunity before we jump in.

Watch this week’s video to hear more about how to get in the right mindset for your success.

Here’s what one person has to say:

“We’ve had a 96 percent client take rate that we’ve shown. In total, we will have added about $50,000 in additional net income this tax season. We can’t believe how easy this was to implement. And the best part is this will become a recurring annual income event year after year.”
