Before 2020 I wasn't heavily invested in the stock market and didn't have a portfolio that I was Investing in consistently. That all changed when the market plummeted at the beginning of 2020 and I knew it was my time to jump in. My businesses are still my number one investment but this year has opened up a new route of cash flow for me and these are some of the investments that have contributed to a successful year.

DISCLOSURE: I am NOT telling you to invest in these stocks, this video is for educational purposes ONLY.

I met Brian Fullerton of Brian's Lawn Maintenance in 2019 at the GIE conference in Louisville and was glad to find out he was just as genuine off the camera as he was on it. Today I talk about what I've noticed about how Brian interacts with his audience and the things he has done to gain his 120k subscriber following by being genuine and keeping an open ear to what his audience wants to see from him.

Today I talk about taxes and how you can pay less, but why it's probably not the best idea. Here are a few of the topics we cover:

 1) You might not want to kick the can down the road (pay taxes in 2021)

2) Delay purchases if this was your first year & you have losses

3) Section 179, only if you are growing fast

4) IRA, 401K, SEP IRA (April 15th deadline for IRA contributions)

5) AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) if you plan on getting a loan or real estate in the next year
