From: Scott Letourneau
Re: Special Webinar with Attorney Lee Phillips, a Counselor of the United States
Supreme Court.

You have a separate legal entity for your business but are you taking advantage
of the tax laws to put more money in your pocket?

Do you know how to structure your assets in the best way possible to grow
and preserve your wealth?

If you have not, or you are unsure, here is the good news.

Attorney Lee Phillips will teach you step-by-step how to reposition
yourself in the law so that you can go out and make more money than you have
ever thought possible.

Yes, a good knowledge of the law will actually let you make
more money.

In today’s lawsuit-happy society, making it isn’t enough.
You also have to know how to protect your wealth, or someone
will take it away from you.

Patterns that Create Business Failure and Business Success-an NLP Prospective

Business and life do have patterns for success and failure. NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) is the study of the connection between the neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”) and behavior patterns that have been learned through experience (“programming”) and can be organized to achieve specific goals in life and business. I like to use this simple definition; it is a study of patterns or recipes. If you have a great recipe for your favorite meatloaf there are certain ingredients that if are added in the correct amounts and sequence will create a specific result. This is similar to an NLP pattern.

For example, good spellers do one thing differently (or have one more ingredient) then bad spellers. Good spellers will first see a word visually in their mind, sound it out, and then spell it. Bad spellers will skip the step of visually seeing the word and jump right to sounding out a word then attempting to spell it out. Good spellers have a different “recipe” than bad spellers. They have one ingredient different.

In business there are patterns of success and failure. One core pattern for business success is the Disney pattern. This was molded after the famous Walt Disney. Walt and his team of imagineers were able to accomplish amazing results with their meetings. Walt did not run a meeting like most business meetings. He would separate meetings into different meetings. In the first meeting, called “the dreaming room”, you are allowed to come up with ideas and that is it. There is no evaluation or organization of ideas. That is a separate meeting! Why? If you start allowing your staff or yourself to evaluate ideas in the meeting many times that will stifle the new ideas. People will start to think, “Maybe my idea is not such a good idea”. That is NOT how Walt Disney conducted meetings.

I would recommend you adopt this pattern for your business meetings. Here are the four meetings Walt would run: First, is the “in the dreaming room” all brain storming. Second is organizing the ideas. Third is to evaluate the ideas. Forth would be to implement the ideas.

This was his brilliant pattern for business success. This is especially important if you are a solo business owner. You may be sabotaging your own success by coming up with great ideas and immediately thinking how can this NOT work. That will stifle even your own ideas.

Another pattern that seems to prevent a lot of success is lack of time management skills. Most people think they are very good at managing their time and they are really not. You can calibrate in a minute to how well you are doing and perhaps consider a different pattern for success.

The poor time management pattern looks like this:

Allowing for constant interruptions during your work day. That includes, email, instant messages, texts, phone calls, social media and family and friends. It is very inefficient to be stopping and starting all day long on projects. The time it takes to stop, go to an unplanned phone call, then go back and take 1-2 minutes to get caught up or remember where you left off is very inefficient. You might be saying, I needed to take that phone call what are you suggesting? First, schedule a follow up call with each call. Don’t randomly allow people to call you. You will have exceptions to any rule; your attorney may be calling on an important legal action, a family emergency…

The Power of the Host/Beneficiary Relationship to Your Business

By Scott Letourneau

In this economy leveraging your valuable capital is a must. Most individuals and small business owners have very little if any additional capital. That means you must find creative ways to market with almost no budget. How do you obtain additional customers at no cost to you? That is the million dollar question.

First, you have to work on your relationship skills. I know this part sounds like stuff you might learn in kindergarten but so few business owners do it. These things include returning phone calls the same day ideally, returning emails within 1-2 days. Asking first, how may you help or serve. Follow up on what you say. If you finish a meeting and say you will follow up with an email that afternoon with the steps for that person to take, do it.

If you “forget” because you are unorganized or have a pattern of overpromising, that is an issue. One strategy that I take is after every call I schedule a to-do item on my calendar of what I need to send that person after the call. Many times I am able to do that within 5-10 minutes after the call, but many times there may be 2-3 calls in a row and instead of relying upon my memory for what I am promising, I track it. Remember to say please and thank you. Follow up. Add more value. Over deliver.

Be honest. If you cannot deliver something, tell someone that you cannot do that in a time frame or manor expected. Most will respect you more. Even something as simple as asking, have you heard of ________. Instead of faking that you should know that person, be honest. No, I have not heard of that person. Most people will respect your honesty instead of half faking you know them.  I remember hearing one speaker who actually sent out a thank you card to a promoter, BEFORE he speaks. I have always done that after, but not before. I thought that was a great improvement.

For some reason so many seem to skip these basic steps and then they apply the strategies I will teach you next and they conclude they do not work. Most of the times the reason they did not “work” for you is that you did not have these foundational elements in place. Many of you may need to be really honest with yourself and find you need to improve greatly in these little things first.

Let’s discuss the power of the host beneficiary relationship.

The ultimate form of leverage for your business is to find a company, a business or individual who already has the relationships you need access to. They have already spent the time, the money to acquire and keep your ideal customers and clients.  They are seen as the trusted advisor in their field. That is true leverage!

The marketing term is called a “host/beneficiary relationship”, popularized by marketing guru, Jay Abraham.

A host beneficiary relationship is where Company A (the host) agrees to let Company B (the beneficiary)  deliver a sales message to people who are Company A’s customers or clients.

If you are the beneficiary, you are providing valuable content to the host’s clients in exchange for FREE exposure to their entire list! Many times a host may have a membership site or continuity program and are looking for guests to interview either through a teleseminar or webinar. Many times it is your ability on how you position your product or service to add massive value to the host’s clients.

On the other hand, in growing your own business as the host, you may be looking for other great information, tools, resources that really can help your own clients be more successful. Why wait for your clients to find (if they are likely) the right resources to grow their business or find the consumer resources they need. It may be your responsibility to search out the best resources for your clients or customers and become the host of numerous bonuses, teleseminars, webinars and other ways to brings in beneficiaries to help your clients or customers become more successful. In fact, the revenue share you may experience by being the host may offset your entire marketing budget when done properly!

10 LLC Secrets to Protect Your Assets and Financial Future!

The Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a powerful entity that originally started in Wyoming in 1977 and became more popular in the late 1990’s. It is a hybrid between a partnership and corporation. Most are unaware that an LLC can be taxed in four different ways: disregarded, partnership and S or C corporation. The IRS established federal default rules to simplify this determination in 1997. A one member LLC by default will be taxed as a disregarded entity for tax purposes and a two member LLC will be taxed as a partnership for tax purposes.

Now let me share with you 10 LLC secrets that will not only keep you up out of tax trouble but help you better avoid pitfalls down the road.

  1. Can an IRA invest in an LLC? Yes, but…This is a popular strategy when looking for different investment options for retirement funds. Many are looking to take advantage of the real estate market to invest in and find they do not have the money personally to invest, but their IRA does. This strategy involves moving your IRA to a self directed IRA and the IRS becomes the member of an LLC. In other words, the investment is in the membership interest of the LLC. There are a couple of major issues with this strategy that could create problems with the IRS. First, if you are the manager of the LLC and you are on the LLC checking account that has IRA funds, that means you have “check book control”. There are prohibited transactions in where you can not use that money, but more importantly is that the signer on the account may use the LLC money for personal use which is a big problem and could create serious IRS issues. The second issue centers around who can be the manager of the LLC. Can it be you also? Is that self-dealing? That means you are running the same entity that is owned by the IRA in which you own and that is an issue by the IRS. It appears that having a separate self directed IRA only to own the real estate may be a better approach. You do want to isolate the safe and risk investments also. A resource is Entrust Arizona. You can contact them at 1-480-306-8404.
  2. What are the advantages of an LLC over an S corporation? Assuming the LLC is taxed as a partnership vs. the S corporation, there are differences. When you capitalize an S corporation, code section 351 allows shareholders to transfer appreciated assets to the corporation tax free. BUT…the shareholder who is transferring the asset MUST own 80% of the S corporation. This is fine if you have a one person corporation, but what if you have a partner? What happens if you own it 50/50? Is it now a taxable event? Yes! How does an LLC taxed as a partnership differ? There is no such rule for an LLC. Transfers are tax free under IRC §721 to an LLC taxed as a partnership. There is no 80% rule. An LLC can rarely lose its status as a partnership for tax purposes, but the S corporation can forfeit the S election,  in many ways including having a foreign owner, an owner that is a C corporation….(the S corporation has restrictions on who can be a shareholder. This is especially important when you are looking for investors. The LLC has the charging order protection which offers more protection vs. an S corporation. Yes, you can get the best of both worlds and have an LLC taxed as an S corporation and have the charging order protection (which will be covered in bonus point #12).
