Thanks for your posts. Good stuff to say the least. Control the dough is always a GREAT way of doing business even if you aren't a general contractor. When I did seminars in the 90's people paid me and I paid the seminar host. This was the person that did all the advertising and attendee hustling. May sound strange but that was how it worked.
Today it would probably be the other way around. The host would probably pay me and worry about the gate. Regardless control the dough and you can fly low or high depending on what you're telling the IRS
The only one responsible for you ain't the government or some social justice warrior. It is YOU so why not learn the tricks of the trade and apply them, right?
