Question #4: Can people working from home deduct a portion of their rent, or mortgage payment, as a business expense? If so, under what circumstances?

Question #6: Do you see any additional tax changes for people working from home? If so, how can we prepare for these?

Fanocracy- Turning Fans into Customers and Customers into Fans

All else being equal, the relationships we build with our clients is more important than the products and services we provide to them. This is the premise behind the new Wall Street Journal best-selling book, “Fanocracy- Turning Fans into Customers and Customers into Fans” written by my dear friend, David Meerman Scott, and his daughter, Reiko Scott.

During my Tuesday evening LegalMinds Mastermind live video, David shared specific examples of how lawyers and other professionals, can use the approaches outlined in Fanocracy, to create passionate fans who will help market, brand and share your practice and services with the world.

This interview was good. I hope you enjoy and benefit from these new approaches to marketing and branding. Even more important, I hope you take action on these powerful ideas.

———-

“Fanocracy is a deep dive into strategies to build a powerful culture that drives business success. It also explores the thinking of a new generation—one that values community, sharing, and justice. David and Reiko share surprising ideas you can implement immediately, such as letting go of your work and allowing people to make it their own, seeing the world as a gift and giving gifts in return, celebrating your customers’ stories, and the power of compassion.” -Tony Robbins (from the foreword)

———-

“Reiko and David have captured the essence of how organizations, small and large, can organize and amplify the passions of their best customers. It’s not difficult, but it’s not common either: by building personal relationships and thus doing better work. A breakthrough in clarity and simplicity.” -Seth Godin
