Motivation to help business owners: I consider it to be a personal challenge to find wasy to save my clients taxes or if they are trying to be too "creative" - to keep them out of trouble.

Obstacles you help entrepreneurs with: Mostly tax-related items including transfers of ownership, multistate reporting, year-end planning, tax credits, passive activity issues, etc.

Best advice for small-business owers: Treat your employees well - great employees are hard to find and keep.

Biggest mistake that you see business owners make: Telling their CPA about a tax-related event after it is done when it is too late for the CPA to be of assistance.
