Answering Your Phones "Live" in Your Tax Resolution Practice

I want to ask you a question today. I know we're deep into tax season and you’re deep into work, but are you answering your phones live? Yesterday I emailed one of our members and I received their “away message” reply back that basically said, "We're very, very busy right now, we will get back to…


Roslyn's Food for Thought - What Challenges You?

Roslyn's Food for Thought - Planning Ahead

This article is by Roslyn Rozbruch, my wife and business partner at Tax and Business Solutions Academy.  It’s a new year — yippee! Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? I’m not much of a make-a-resolution-for-the-new-year kind of person. I make changes year-round when I see fit. In fact, I…


Embrace the Winds of Change and Don't Let Fear Get in the Way

My Version of Success

My version of "success" is helping to make a difference in people's lives. I realized this after years of teaching staff when I ran my tax resolution company and teaching others through continuing education programs. Now at Roz Strategies, helping helping CPAs, EAs, attorneys and other…


Stay On The Road to Success

Roslyn is my inspiration for this quote. She always told me that she believed in me and reminded me not to let naysayers negate my dreams. When I started my tax resolution practice, most people told me "Oh, that's not going to work" (this was 17 years ago...back when it was a new industry). Thank…

Think Outside the Big, Orange Box

Unlike my wife, Roslyn, I’m not the type of person who reads for pleasure...most of the time. What reading I do is about business — marketing and sales books are my go-to. So when Roslyn recommended I read a memoir, “Shoe Dog” by Nike co-founder and chairman Phil Knight, I wasn’t sure I’d be…


Mindset: Are You Thinking Poverty or Riches?

Both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought.” -Napoleon Hill The quote by Napoleon Hill, author of the book Think and Grow Rich is one that you always need to remember as you manage your tax resolution business. There are…


You can Dream of Success or Claim Success

Success is not granted, it is earned. Some professionals dream about success, while others get up, show up and do the hard work - they are the ones who will win big. Hard work includes continually learning and growing. I'm writing this post from San Antonio, Texas where I am SO EXCITED to be…
