Taking 2015 By Storm – Are You Ready?

Roslyn and I always look forward to the holidays; with one daughter in grad school and the other traveling around doing comedy shows, we rarely get to see the two apart, nonetheless together. But winter break is the one chance we have to spend time with both girls and participate in some holiday festivities. We used to throw our own holiday party and invite all of our closest friends and family members, but since we are empty-nesters, we’ve decided to forgo the party planning ourselves and join our friends at their houses instead. Celebrating with our friends at their homes works out especially well for us this year because we’ve been so busy focusing on our business and conference in January that we haven’t had any time to think about the holidays at all!

I plan to take 2015 by storm and I’d like you to join me. We’ve got big plans for January, and it all started with a tax resolution boot camp I attended back in October. Not only did I get to hear great speakers, but I had the chance to meet with a few of my Inner Circle Members as well. It’s not often that my members and I are in the same place at the same time, so I decided to host a little cocktail meet and greet. It was great getting to know them a little better. The whole thing inspired me to connect more with my CPAs, EAs and attorneys live which is one of the driving forces behind the conference we’re hosting with the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers in January—The Marketing and Technology Extravaganza for the tax problem resolution niche.

The three-day event takes place on January 7-9 at the Rosen Hotel in Orlando, FL, and is geared towards lawyers, CPAs, and enrolled agents who are ready to get in the business of growing their business! I’m co-hosting alongside the ASTPS and will be speaking alongside with other experts. If you ask me, there’s a lot going on in the tax industry these days—a lot of things that threaten life as we know it (at least, when it comes to your tax resolution practice). It’s our goal to teach you how to deal with those threats, taking 2015 by storm and showing you how you can profit tremendously from these events!

Not only will this conference be educational, but it also serves the dual purpose of providing us with yet another way to meet in person and get to know one another a little better. Sure, it’s not Vegas (where the boot camp was held), but it is directly across the street from Disney World—and there’s no better way to get to know someone than by taking a spin on the teacups together. In all seriousness, I’m really looking forward to co-hosting this awesome event, and I hope to see you all there!

In the meantime, I will focus on the holidays just long enough to go through with my annual family traditions. Each year, on Christmas Eve we go to our friend’s house for a buffet dinner and a neighborhood Christmas parade. On Christmas day, Roslyn and I go to the movies with our daughters. And then after that we go to another friend’s house for their Christmas dinner party. We don’t celebrate Christmas ourselves—we’re more the Hanukkah type—but we enjoy spending time with friends and reveling in the holiday spirit. We hope you have an equal relaxing holiday and we look forward to seeing you in Orlando next year!
