    Ep 148 Profitable Tax Credits with Doug Ludlow

    Running a small business can be hard and there are so many things you have to keep track of and learn. It's a lot easier when you can outsource these to others. We will chat a little about that today as it relates to taxes and everything that surrounds them, including managing your payroll.
     
    There are also thousands of tax credits and deductions. The great benefit of credits is they give you dollar for dollar reductions in the taxes you have to pay!
     
    Our guest will share how to make finding those credits easier.

    Bio:
    Doug Ludlow grew up in Modesto, an agricultural town in Central California. Despite Modesto city’s proximity to Silicon Valley, the city is almost entirely cut off from the technology industry, which is the economic engine of the 21st century. He helped start MainStreet, a financial services platform helping small businesses extend their runway and maximize their tax credits, in part to bring back good jobs and upward mobility to the people living in his hometown.
    Before MainStreet, Doug split his time between entrepreneurship (founding The Happy Home Company, Hipster, and madKast) and leadership roles at top technology companies, including Google and AOL.

    Bio: Nate Jenson has a masters degree in Forensic Accounting, he’s a Certified Management Accountant, and is Certified
    in Strategy and Competitive Analysis (through the Institute of Management Accountants). But more importantly,
    he has somewhere around 30,000 hours of helping small business owners understand what’s driving or inhibiting
    their profitability and cash flow and what to do about it.
     
    He has built and sold 3 bookkeeping and CFO companies having helped over 50 companies to get insight into their
    profitability. His current focus is providing this insight in a more automated way so that companies that need the insight but can’t quite afford a fractional CFO, can still
    have a clear picture of what they need to change to improve their profitability.
