Will Mitchell, Starting an Importing Empire, & Tax Time – ES 042

will-mitchell Tax Time! It’s the most wonderful time of the year isn’t it? Maybe not…..Still, you got to pay your dues to IRS and Dan, our CPA, has some tips on MAXIMIZING your deductions this season.  Our fellow-Texan friend Carrie Smith provided the inspiration for this with her article on enjoying your taxes (because you may get some back!)

Round 2 brings up the topic about drop shipping and importing.  Is there a difference?  Will Mitchell thinks so, but Joe’s having a hard time wrapping his head around it.  Will he figure it out?

In the Main Event, Will Mitchell hits us up to give his thoughts on the importing business.  He discusses his strategies and how you could find the right product to start selling.  He’s just a kid but has a wealth of knowledge and can help you start off your business without needing an idea.
