Podcast Episode 73 – Taxes, Cash Flow, and Other Blind Spots that are Killing Your Business – Courtney DeRonde
Episode 73 – You know, I tried to do accounting in college, and I absolutely hated it. It’s just not fun for me. Taxes are in that same category. I just despise dealing with taxes. It’s frustrating and it’s complicated, and it changes all the time. But, taxes are a certainty in life and in business, so I’ve had to figure out a way to be able to get good at it. Still, it’s a major blind spot for me. Business can be like that, with blind spots. Things that we’re just not good at. Blind spots are inevitable. Knowing that, we’ve got to figure out how to identify those blind spots and figure out ways to work through those. Otherwise, we run the risk of having weaknesses in our business that can eventually unravel everything we’ve been working for. My guest today is Courtney DeRonde. She’s a CPA and the founder of TPT Advisors. I’m excited to have Courtney here to talk about taxes and other blind spots in our business and how to overcome them. This is an important topic for any business leader.

Get on the waitlist for Residency-Proof Your Marriage!
I’m excited to tell you about a new online course I’m launching called “Residency-Proof Your Marriage.” I’ve seen way too many couples get divorced or see their relationships go sour during their medical career. Medical training is an inherently divisive time, so you have to work to combat that!
This online video course will coach you through setting expectations, communicating effectively, getting on the same page with finances, and keeping your relationship thriving during a difficult time. Whether you’re in medical school, residency, or out in clinical practice, Residency-Proof Your Marriage is going to help you build a thriving medical marriage.
This is a very inexpensive investment in your marriage. A weekend marriage retreat will cost upwards of $1000 between food, registration, lodging, and vacation time. This course is just a fraction of that cost and you can complete it on your own time!
Registration for the beta course is closed, but get on the waitlist for the course launch this fall!
