The Pocket Small Business Owner’s Guide Series Expands

Last October, my book – The Pocket Small Business Owner’s Guide to Taxes – was published by AllWorth Press and became part of a series of books for business owners.  The Pocket Small Business Owner’s Guide books cover such topics as negotiating, buidling your business, and business plans, and today a new title has been added to the series: The Pocket Small Business Owner’s Guide to Starting Your Business on a Shoestring by Carol Tice.

Also known as the Shoestring Startup Guide, the book definitely looks like a great resource for anyone considering starting a new small business.  I meet with new business owners all the time, and unfortunately I see a lot of new businesses run into early cash flow problems or even fail, so there is a definite need for practical money-saving advice for small business owners.

If you buy the book in July, you get a free Shoestring Startup Guide workbook that provides checklists that can be used to brainstorm money-saving opportunities for your business.  Also, you can enter to win a copy of the book on Goodreads.

My new book, The Pocket Small Business Owner’s Guide to Taxes, is scheduled to be released on 10/9/12!  The book is being published by Allworth Press and I have setup a new website to promote the book at

The book expands upon the content that I have written for this blog over the years and provides both in-depth and practical information for the small business owner.  The main focus of the book  is maximization of tax deductions, LLC and S corporation tax issues, and the tax and accounting essentials that you should understand.  If you have found the articles on this blog to be helpful, I think you will find this book to be a good resource and reference.

Check out the Be A Pig website to find out more.  You can also pre-order the book if you are interested.

The Pocket Small Business Owner’s Guide to Taxes

I apologize for the lack of posts on PDXCPA in the last few months, and for getting behind on comments.  I was given the opportunity last July to write a book on taxes for small business owners, so for seven months I spent countless hours writing and re-writing the manuscript.  As soon as I was finished with that, tax season was upon me – so it has been a very busy year for me.

The good news is that the book, The Pocket Small Business Owner’s Guide to Taxes, is scheduled to be available on October 1st, 2012.  The book contains everything I always wanted to add in this blog and more.  It covers the basics that every small business owners should know, entity selection and tax considerations, and maximizing tax deductions.   The book is concise and practical, and much of the content comes from working in the trenches with small businesses owners over the years.

Stay tuned for more information on the book.  Also, I will also start working on some new content for this blog.  Thanks!
