In this episode you will hear how Dr. King walked into a Boston Army Recruiting Office and said “Hey, I'm a Doctor and I want to join the Army”, a very uncommon scenario in the recruiting world! He describes what drew him to a career in Trauma and Critical Care and how he was part of the initial discussions of developing an Army Trauma Training platform at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. He shares stories from his initial deployments on a Forward Surgical Team and working in a Combat Support Hospital in Iraq and how those experiences helped prepare him to care for casualties from the Boston Marathon bombing in April 2013 (after finishing the Marathon himself!). He shares some important lessons learned from that episode which he helped translate into common practice. COL King has supported the US Army Joint Special Operations Command for more than 8 years and describes a remarkable case of a critically wounded Army Ranger that required surgical repair of bleeding within the chest cavity (trauma thoracotomy) during a cardiac arrest in the most austere of conditions. This intervention saved the Soldier's life and allowed him to recover and later attend medical school. Dr. King describes his research interests in stopping traumatic bleeding using novel technologies such as self-expanding foams and expanding the accessibility and familiarity with tourniquets within the EMS and civilian population. He shares many insights and lessons learned over a distinguished career and provides some valuable advice for all listeners. You don't want to miss this episode!

Stock-based employment compensation has gained popularity in recent years, and even investors who don't receive employment compensation in stock should be asking, is SBC potentially dilutive to shareholders?-----Transcript-----Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Todd Castano, Head of Global Valuation, Accounting and Tax within Morgan Stanley Research. Along with my colleagues bringing you a variety of perspectives, I'll be talking about the interesting conundrum around stock based compensation. It's Friday, May 13th at 2 p.m. in New York. I don't need to tell listeners that 2022 has been rough on equity prices. And while it may be difficult to look at the double digit drop in the S&P or on your 41k, I'm going to share an interesting ripple effect from the market correction. And that's the impact on employee stock based compensation. And while some listeners may be saying, "this doesn't affect me because I don't receive compensation in stock", it doesn't mean it's not having an effect on your portfolio. But let me start at the beginning. For those unfamiliar, stock based compensation, often called SBC, is a form of compensation given to employees or other parties like vendors in exchange for their services. It's a very common way for companies to incentivize employees and to align employee and shareholder interest. When a company does well, everyone does well. Stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units are currently the most common types of stock based compensation. Stock based compensation issuance has gained in popularity, particularly with startups and new issuances, allowing companies without much cash on hand to offer competitive total compensation rates and to attract and retain talent. In fact, 2021 marked the largest annual growth percentage in SBC cost at 27% year over year. Primarily because of new entrants to the equity market through initial public offerings and from the recovery from COVID that triggered performance based bonuses. Let's put a number on it. Stock based compensation is now approaching $250 billion annually, mostly concentrated in technology and communication service sectors. So here's where it gets interesting. While stock based incentives encourage employees to perform, they also don't require upfront cash payments. It follows that they also dilute the ownership of existing shareholders by increasing the potential number of shares outstanding. So now you may see where I'm going with this in terms of shareholders and your portfolio. While companies have been issuing more stock awards to employees, the double digit year to date decline in equity market has put a lot of these awards underwater. In other words, employees are essentially being paid less, meaning stock based compensation could have the opposite effect, lowering morale and sending some employees to the exits. To put another number on it, we estimate nearly 40% of Russell 3000 companies currently are trading below their average stock grant values. Healthcare technology firms in particular appear most exposed. And considering we're in a tight labor market, companies may be forced to issue more grants to offset equity value decreases, further diluting ownership to existing shareholders. I point all this out because SBC is generally treated as a non-cash expense and ignored from earnings. Market data vendors also often exclude outstanding awards from market capitalization calculations. So investors may underappreciate the potential dilution SBC brings to their shares. With more dilution on the way as companies attempt to right size employee pay. For investors, we believe stock compensation is a real economic expense and should be incorporated in valuation. It may not appear so in bull markets, but this correction has eliminated that reality. Thanks for listening.

Every day you make financial decisions about your company, which affect how successful and sustainable your construction business is. If you're responsible for the bookkeeping and all the paper management (bills, receipts, estimates, invoices), you could be making errors that affect your decisions. Because of an incorrect decimal place, you may think that you have more money in the bank than you do. Or you may not fully understand how a decision today affects your business tomorrow. Keeping up with paperwork is a typical construction business timewaster we noticed in more than thirty years in the industry. Doing your books often winds up costing you more money in the end, not to mention the time and energy that goes into a task you despise or, at the very least, don't fully understand. This is one area that many construction company owners hate to be part of but still choose to take responsibility for. Here are some ways having a construction bookkeeper can solve your paperwork frustrations and free more of your time: 1. Financial Health A bookkeeper keeps track of your company's financial health and can advise you on decisions that can help you grow your business. They can also warn you about pitfalls that could hurt your long-term growth. Consider that you have a great month with a lot of money coming in, so there's extra cash in the bank account. You might be tempted to upgrade your equipment, but a bookkeeper can warn you that there are upcoming payments the money is earmarked for. They can help you determine the best time to purchase those tools, so you won't suddenly find yourself with a zero balance. This information becomes even more critical if you're looking to undertake significant financial transactions, such as taking out a loan or purchasing a new truck. A bookkeeper can help you fully understand the financial ramifications of such a move. 2. Late Transactions You might think a late bill payment doesn't affect your business, but the fees associated with late payments add up, and missing the wrong payment can affect your company's credit. That may make it more challenging to get a business loan or credit card. Worse, you could miss important transactions in one month that have ramifications for your business the next month or later on. By absent-mindedly skipping a payment in May, you may think you have extra money that gets spent—until you notice you have to double up on payment in June. Construction Bookkeepers stay on top of your financial transactions and understand how every transaction affects your business. They can help determine the optimal time to pay debts and let you know if clients are behind on payments. The information and insight a bookkeeper provides can go a long way to helping you make intelligent business decisions. Not having a bookkeeper adds unnecessary work to your load; it increases your stress and increases the chances of errors. 3. Tax Compliance On top of all that, bookkeepers also stay aware of changing laws to ensure your company is compliant with payroll and tax laws and any other financial rules and regulations that affect your business. With all the negatives to doing the bookkeeping yourself, why wouldn't you hire a bookkeeper so you can focus on growing your business? Final thoughts What to save? What to toss out? At Fast Easy Accounting, we no longer need to print and save every document in file folders and keep adding new file cabinets. Our paperwork processes ensure your happiness and peace of mind knowing that your papers can be retrieved electronically at any time in the future. Remember, if you are sick and tired of doing administrative tasks such as handling your documents, we are here to remove your paperwork frustrations. Although a 100% paperless office is not the complete answer, we can certainly help you reduce most of it. In most cases, we can help contractors like you eliminate over 50% of your paperwork; the related savings and increased production more than pays for our services. About The Author: Sharie DeHart, QPA is the co-founder of Business Consulting And Accounting in Lynnwood, Washington. She is the leading expert in managing outsourced construction bookkeeping and accounting services companies and cash management accounting for small construction companies across the USA. She encourages Contractors and Construction Company Owners to stay current on their tax obligations and offers insights on how to manage the remaining cash flow to operate and grow their construction company sales and profits so they can put more money in the bank.

In this episode of the SALTovation podcast, we speak with Jaye Calhoun, a partner in the New Orleans office of Kean Miller, about some of the challenges businesses face when dealing with state and local tax. They discuss some of the current constitutional amendments and bills advancing through the state legislature and how it could potentially affect taxpayers. Jaye also shares how her broad exposure to many tax organizations has influenced the issues she chooses to dig into as an attorney. Topics discussed in this episode: How state and local tax issues impact taxpayers who do business in Louisiana What it means to be a remote seller The current constitutional amendment on the ballot called The Louisiana Adjustment of Ad Valorem Tax Rates Amendment The bill advancing through the state legislature that deals with the interest on payments made under protest The leadership position Jaye has held What tax issues to look out for in the future What You Will Learn: [04:56] How SALT issues impact Louisiana businesses [08:01] Louisiana's version of uniformity [15:12] City rate differentials [15:43] What are remote sellers [18:18] How big companies handle home rule city taxes [23:31] The bill that deals with payments made under protest [30:33] Why Jaye likes to the collaborate aspect of tax practice [37:53] The leadership positions Jaye has held [44:18] Tax issues to watch out for Quotables: “The real issue that you face when you deal with Louisiana and the sales and use tax area, is that the parishes each get to independently administer and collect their own taxes. So, you don't really have one centralized collector.” - Jaye Calhoun [05:46] “We don't want people gaming the system, essentially paying and then we have to pay them back with interest later, but you're not investing with the tax collector….I can't even imagine a client coming to me saying, you know, I looked at options in the market and I think I'm going to go invest with the tax collector.” - Jaye Calhoun [27:56] “So we as TaxOps are actively engaged in this Colorado tax auditor coalition….They don't want to be the bad guy. They want to teach people to do the right thing. But at the same time, they're there to collect money for their cities, but it is a lot of like open sharing information resources..So there is a lot of collaboration and inviting in.” - Meredith Smith [32:08] “I think the federal government does a really good job of educating the public as to what the rules are. They do the enforcement, they do the collection, but they understand their mission to educate as well. As Meredith was saying, departments don't have a lot of money now, but maybe that is where your tax bar or professional organizations can help.” - Jaye Calhoun [34:57] Relevant Links: Jaye Calhoun at Kean Miller: https://www.keanmiller.com/jaye-a-calhoun.html Jaye Calhoun on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jaye-calhoun-8b9b459/
Because of their training and experience, CPAs are rightly considered the foremost providers of tax services to taxpayers. Some CPAs also serve the taxpaying public at large — with appreciation for Congress's task to enact equitable tax laws and the IRS's job to diligently and fairly administer them — by recommending improvements to both. They can do so in many ways, but in this episode, we'll explore two paths: the AICPA's volunteer tax committees and a council directly advising the IRS's top leadership — from the experience of a longtime trailblazer, Jeff Porter, CPA.

This Podcast Is Episode Number 470, And It's About How To Balance Profit Centers And Cost Centers In Your Construction Company Success in operating a profitable construction business is all about maintaining the proper balance of control over both The Profit Centers and The Cost Centers. If either one gets too powerful and is allowed to run your construction company, it can cause more damage than good. The definition of a Non-Profit Construction Company is one that tries to fix its weaknesses and continues making the same mistakes repeatedly, expecting a different result and continues to struggle until the owner lays down and dies from over-work and exhaustion. A Highly Profitable Construction Company builds on its strengths and core competencies and continues innovating, growing, and responding to changes in its environment. It's Not Rocket Science; It's A Lot Harder Than That! Profit Centers Most construction companies earn most of their profits from less than four different project types or Profit Centers. Residential Remodel Contractors Have Four Main Profit Centers: Kitchen Remodels Bath Remodels Additions Whole House Remodels Commercial Tenant Improvement Contractors Have Three Main Profit Centers: Commercial Service Work New Installation Whole Space Remodel Service And Repair Contractors Have Three Main Profit Centers: Service Work New Installation Remove And Replace New House Builders Have Two Main Profit Centers: Spec Homes Custom Homes Every construction company has strengths and weaknesses, which means there are particular types of projects they consistently earn lots of money. And there are some types of projects that they always lose lots of money doing. The answer is found in that gold mine called QuickBooks Job Costing Reports and QuickBooks Job Profitability Reports. These reports provide you with a treasure map to see which profit centers your particular construction company makes the most money in and which ones you lose the most. Do more of the ones that make you money and fewer of the ones you lose money on. I will give you a hint; you may not like it, you may stop reading and leave angry; In most of the research we have done for our construction clients, we have discovered the concept of Leveling applies not just to whom you spend time with but to who refers jobs to you! Cost Centers They all share the same three Cost Centers, Marketing - Accounting - Production (MAP) Marketing Is The Number One Cost Center One current client or customer is worth more than all of your prospects combined. All contractors need existing customers and new ones to survive and thrive. The 80-20 Rule for contractors can guide your marketing dollars where they will do the most good. Understand and document your target market demographic and psychographic profile. Focus 100% of your marketing on your target market and forget everyone else. Identify the top 20% of your customers that generally generate 80% of your net profit. Identify the top 20% of the goods or services you sell 80% of your revenue. A good rule of thumb to grow sales is to budget 5% to 10% of gross sales on marketing. Anything less is like winking at a pretty girl without her knowing you are doing it. Relying 100% on word of mouth and referrals keeps contractors poor and broke. Accounting Is The Number Two Cost Center Successful, highly paid contractors understand and use reliable QuickBooks Financial Reports and Job Costing Reports to know: Which jobs they are equipped to do and make a handsome profit on because it is one of their primary to bid on and pursue Usually, contractors who understand this concept earn the bulk of the profits in the construction industry. For what it is worth, "There is a Hall of Justice; however, there is no Hall of Fairness." Production is the number three Cost Center This is where all your hard work pays off. At this point, you have some basic operation manuals in place for your field and office employees. It is the document that answers the same questions you will be asked hundreds of times. It is the Wikipedia of your company. "This is Who We Are, and How Things Are Done Here." Now you have a road map to success, and all you have left is to assemble the tools, equipment, and employees, set up your trucks or vans, and work! The reason is simple. A contractor focusing on finding and optimizing profit centers will have a much more difficult job than someone overseeing a division that is not classified as a profit center. A profit center manager will have to increase sales by generating additional revenue and decreasing costs (as a percentage of income), much like an entrepreneur would have to do in their own independent business. On the other hand, a cost center manager only has to worry about staying within budget. (A cost center is a department that is important to the overall success of a company, but its contribution to revenues and profits can be only incrementally measured. A cost center is an area that typically runs red ink in upfront losses but will result in a much richer company if managed correctly; think of the research division of a major pharmaceutical corporation that spends billions developing new drug treatments without selling a single pill for years). If the pipeline were to dry up and the cost center shut down, the company would soon find a shadow of its former self. Yet, it is a cost center and not a profit center that is likely to find itself at the top of a list for recessionary layoffs. Many businesses are tempted to treat all divisions as cost centers instead of profit centers. This can be a horrible mistake because if managers are rewarded simply for cutting costs, they will not make sufficient reinvestment in a business to grow profitably in the future. Hence, you eventually end up with outdated equipment, facilities, and staff and your customers are likely to go elsewhere because their needs aren't being met. On the other hand, a profit center approach blends the need for current cash with the desire to grow earnings in the future, making a manager accountable for the long-term health of a business. The legendary management consultant and thinker Peter Drucker created the term profit center in the 1940s. He subsequently asserted that the term profit center is a misnomer that leads managers to focus on the wrong overall priorities, insisting that everything is a cost center. By focusing only on the absolute profit of a division, factors such as return on capital, opportunity cost, efficient use of resources, and relative returns are ignored to the detriment of the stockholder or owner. Final thoughts A holistic Business Process Management Strategy (BPM) is the only way to optimize profit and cost centers.

We discuss the latest shock to American democracy, the SCOTUS leak of a draft majority opinion overturning Roe V Wade, with Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin's Courtney Hayward. We explore the politics andthe implications for Wisconsin. Are there ways we can fight back effectively?
