Survivability of Your Startup Business

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

PAST EVENTS:

 

Saturday Afternoon Startup Workshop For The Public
(no CLE credit)

Startup Self Preservation

( STARTING A NEW BUSINESS WHILE PRESERVING YOUR LIFESTYLE )

  To the extent possible, do not commit to decisions until all similar related alternatives are known.

  All possibilities are in play all the time.  Current steps should  be continued only if steps continue to be optimum, considering all related alternatives.

  Maximizing profitability is a survival decision.  If the business ends due to serving obtjectives other than profitability, it is normally too late to go back, re-focus, & try again.

  Business strength and survivability comes not only through profitability, but the ability to control the damage that can be inflicted through unexpected liability.

  The possibility to even continue in business may depend upon the most profitable path rather than a sub-optimal path.  Going sub-optimal could cause the business to end if it encounters a disadvantageous pinch point.

  A living map should be constructed at points where each aspect of the business can be varied, to encourage advance study and awareness of all changes that could be facilitated by. Examples include lease of premises, insurance anniversaries, equipment replacement, manufacturing approaches and supply sources, marketing mix, cost-benefit of new-eliminated industry segments, and more. Optimum planning can reduce the terminal nature of a problem that could not only end the business, but create personal disaster of such magnitude that might irreversibly damage the entrepreneur's willingness to re-enter business.

Tax Debt Control

( HAPPY HOUR TAX DEBT RELIEF )

Curt Harrington, practitioner of patent & tax law at Harrington & Harrington, presents this informative workshop focusing on intelligent construction of a dual track relief plan extending into the future that permits a better picture of the choice between bankruptcy and Offer-in-Compromise, and how the choice of one practically inhibits immediate availability of the other.

This presentation is intended for:

(1) Debtors in trouble with the federal and state taxing agencies & who will benefit from the examples; and

(2) Practitioners who will come to understand the disadvantage to debtor control from not doing both analyses; and that want one hour of tax specialization continuing education

For more information on Curt’s background, you can view his professional website at http://patentax.com/curt.

Materials are typically posted in the PATENTAX Library just before the presentation http://patentax.com/library/

Restitution &Taxation

Curt Harrington, practitioner of patent & tax law at Harrington & Harrington, presents this informative presentation focusing on getting a prepared and fair restitution process; and then on restitution as a debt, its inhibition on personal advancement, its taxation and approaches that can help ameliorate its crushing burden

This presentation is intended for:

(1) Citizens struggling with potential restitution or that are in trouble with a burdensome restitution order and seek to deal with it; and

(2) Practitioners who may come to understand the potential for restitution to be more of a punishment than a jail sentence. The need to urge a sentence that gives a real ability to repay the restitution, or in the alternative, allow it to be compromised more readily
