#1 Business Speaker and Wealth Coach - William R. Patterson

In February through April of every year, millions of Americans will be filing their taxes and receiving sizeable refunds.

Here are seven smart ways to make best use of your tax refund:

  1. Reduce your credit card debt.
    It is difficult to build wealth if you are paying 20-30% interest on credit cards. There are few better uses of your tax refund than paying down your high interest rate debt. You can use the Resources section of BaronSeries.com to obtain your free credit report and find the fastest way to pay-off your debt.
  2. Contribute to a Roth or Traditional IRA.
    Through April 15th, individuals are allowed to contribute up to a $4,000 ($5,000 if you are age 50 or older) to an IRA for tax year 2007. If you are unable to make the April 15th deadline, you can make your 2008 contribution with it instead. For 2008, individuals are allowed to contribute up to a $5,000 ($6,000 if you are age 50 or older).
  3. Fund a 529 plan.
    For many parents and students, the cost of higher-education has become increasingly difficult to manage. According to the College Board, tuition and fees at public colleges and universities have increased 51 percent on an inflation-adjusted basis over the last 10 years. 529 plans can be a great way to begin saving for your children’s college education. Some states even offer an income tax deduction for residents who contribute to a 529 plan.

Build Your Million-Dollar Business

#1 Business Speaker and Wealth Coach - William R. Patterson

To reach any significant level of success, every small business owner should have a business coach to help them avoid many of the hurdles and pitfalls that exist and rapidly build their business with integrated turnkey solutions.

If you have the goal of building a “million-dollar business,” it is important to clarify whether you are talking about a million dollars in revenue, earnings, or owners’ equity. They mean different things and can be achieved with different strategies.

Here are key points to keep in mind:

  1. From a planning standpoint, your business model and exit strategy are important factors that will determine the speed at which you can build your business.

    There are many entrepreneurs who are not looking to create sustainable businesses, only companies that they can eventually sell to larger players in the competitive space. This requires a different level of skill and planning than a sustainable business.It is also important to clearly define your exit strategy when you start your business, and whether you will “cash out” of that business by automating it, creating franchises, an acquisition, Direct Public Offering (DPO), Initial Public Offering (IPO), etc.One option for quickly creating a million-dollar business is to take your idea and develop it into a proven business model, then sell stock to accredited investors. This gets you to a million dollars in capitalization without necessarily having the revenue or earnings to support it. As you saw during the dotcom era, there were lots of businesses with billions of dollars in capitalization and little-to-no earnings. This is great for the founders and investment bankers, but does not mean much for new shareholders.

    It also becomes a lot quicker to get to a million dollars in capitalization, revenue, or earnings if you are doing large deals and selling high price, high margin products and services.
