"For three years is here with us on the show today. A Paul hood, CPA meet Mr Chris Collins. Oh, I mean, over there, Paul Ivy meat are you there, Paul? I'm here. Chris paul. Yeah. He he controls my words by cutting the lights out everyday. It's it is instead of phone, sticks across the studio. He talks grew up super-poor. I did. I did do what question do you have for Chris Collins CPA now, you're firms doing great? This question, do you have for Chris by his mindset? Yeah. Chris, well, the what I wanna know Chris in, in our practices very successful. We have clients all over the country and what we do is a lot like you and Klay dues. We, we help businesses become successful for specifically from a measuring standpoint. My question for you is, is, do you see a see a commonality between these businesses that you come in, and work with is there kind of a common theme both on the negative side. And then, so which in reality means there's a common thing on the on the on the successful side. Yeah, that's a, that's a great question. And I don't in in my experience. There is one answer to that. But there's a there's a couple of commonalities and something that I learned very, very early on is the first step in success is that you have to own the responsibility. So there's, there's a lot of entrepreneurs out there that have the right idea. But they're always victim. It's the markets fault. It's, you know, it's the situation that they're in the industry, they're in it's their fault, but they, you know, they don't look in the mirror, so the, the most important part of being successful. Entrepreneurs accepting a hundred percent of the responsibility for your outcomes, whether you can control it or not, you have to accept responsibility. And so that, that's the first part. And then the second part is being a great marketer marketing is probably the most important tool if you can't sell. More and you can't get people in the door. It's really hard to cut a business into profitability. In fact, I've over the years gone into businesses that just laid off twenty people, and I have to ask you get those twenty people back. We, we need him 'cause we need somebody to answer the phone, and, you know, do things and so sales, everything you have to be able to market. And so you can never cut any any business into profitability or I haven't, you know, figured out how to do that, in a scalable in a scalable way. So accepting all the responsibility understanding your market, and then there's a great quote, and this is kind of third one that is you can accomplish anything in life as long as someone else does. I think about that for second. You can accomplish anything in life as long as someone else does it. And if you wanna be successful entrepreneur, you have to have talent around you and talent that can make you successful you need to hire people better than you, you need to have systems in place that they're held accountable for their results. And that they're very clear on what the results are that they need to deliver. But you can accomplish anything in life as long as someone else, does, it, you're going to try to be the one that does everything you, you will implode you'll hit a wall. It's not scalable. You only have so many hours in day, then so much energy. The best entrepreneurs are.

We, we knew we needed to have someone like mardi into the business. So we gave him at the end the day he c. e. o. at the end the day Craig take could get fired from tape boys. If I don't have performance and I sit down and we courtly coaching with Marty, and we do yearly about elections, but I could be fired from this company. And I know I believe Marty. Malifa he knows it, but everyone that company knows. And a lot of people ask me because at the time I was to see and a lot of times people, I mean, I had a lot of people. How can you bring someone in? That's not a Tate, and now he's your boss, it's relieving. And this is if you had his resume in my resume, sitting on your desk and you, you had to hire CEO, who would you hide and go. Craig Tate because he is so tall and thick, and I don't even care about that. I would. I wanna I wanna ask you two final questions here for you and one. I just wanna Craig. This little tip for you. I'm from Germany, ancestry. My mother's maiden name was Meinhard and I worry about Germans. We, we've we as a culture of started to World War. There's only been two world wars, and we've started two of them. So if mardi starts ever say something like we should just take over the world, you would go. Have you ever. I think he did say that at the beginning of the show. All becoming clear. It has fear. Okay. All right, laughing. Okay. So again, I'm gonna shoot. I'm going to my neck. My final two questions. Marty. Okay. So Elson Sarah, Paul hood, you've worked with the guys at Tate boys for a long time. I want to ask you this as their as a CPA that's worked with them your company, hoods. CPA's has worked with Tate boys for how many years now it's probably been about twelve in your mind from the outside. What makes them so successful? I mean, they certainly have invented the tire industry. They certainly don't have a monopoly on the concept of selling tires. And what makes from your perspective on the outside objectively? What makes Tate boys such a successful brand? Well, like I said, they stay focused on what they do..

"All Dr nation you have employee's. Do you have visions of someday having employees? Do you have a team of people that you pay? I venture, you're going to have to move beyond the game of having contractors and the game of hiring friends and family and paying them cash into the table, which is not legal. You're going to have to actually hire employees. And when you do higher employee's, the cost of hiring employees is significantly higher than most people think it is. That's why on today's show, I'm bringing on CPA certified public accountant, Mr Paul hood with me. So we're going to really get into the weeds really into the details all the hidden costs related to hiring employees. How much does it actually cost? I mean, how much does it truly cost to hire an employee? What is the true cost of hiring an employee today in America? Now Paul, this is a subject that I'm very passionate about. Because as the former US SBA entrepreneur of the year as an owner of multiple companies, I deal with this a lot in. I am very aware of the cost of employees, but nobody else seems to be. I'm gonna make a statement and I would like for you to wrestle with it. You can disagree with me on, I just wanna get your take on this shoot me if I employ for ten dollars per hour, it will actually cost me twenty dollars per hour. Wow. Do you agree with that? Do you agree? I gotta pull out all my old accounting books from college. I don't think that's in there clay, you know, I went through five years of college and nobody retort me that. So this is where my justification comes from an you tell me if I'm a moth here when I hire someone for ten dollars an hour and I'll just keep on my call center thinking about the call center just had this conversation yesterday with a young man who are helping. He says, well, I'd like to hire your team to make calls what does it cost? And I said, my cost is twenty dollars an hour is, but you only pay ten an hour said, well, let me explain to the layers. My friend one, they make ten dollars an hour to I have to pay taxes. Paul. What taxes do I have to pay as an employer out of an addition to paying these people? What? What taxes do you have to match their social security? Their fi- can you have to match? How much is that? That is six point, two percent. So I have to pay again, six percent in the Medicare for one point, four, five. So I'm already up to how much between those two run be seven, seven, six, five. Okay. So it'd be ten, ten dollars an hour. Now it's seven percent more so it's kitten. It's kind of ten dollars and seventy cents an hour. Now I have to put him in an office now I've thought about officing in an abandoned bombed out building in Beirut, I've thought about it. I've thought about officing in Ecuador. There's some, there's some box communities. They're made out of boxes, cardboard communities. I've thought about officing in the floating alleged island of trash in the ocean. I've thought about that guys are tons of styrofoam cups. Just keep drinking styrofoam. Cups will throw that into the ocean. We can live there. I've thought about that, but no, then the employees drink coffee, the employee's have cups being employees typically go to the restroom, and I thought about what get rid of toilet paper. Let's save money. They can still go there. They just can't have told paper and now it's about those bathrooms will be sick and they gonna pay someone to clean the bathrooms. The employs us and the. Office office. We have thrived. The building size is twenty seven thousand dollars a month, all it. That's the cost for the office and the air conditioning and the plumbing and the janitorial services and the coffee. It's twenty seven thousand dollars a month..

"Yeah, it's it's rather expensive. We charge up to fifty dollars a month per server. So if you've got you know, five servers for, you know, basic appetites, you know, two or three bucks a month or something. It's very portable. Now we have Paul hood on the show. Now Paul hood is a show sponsor his company's hood, CPA's dot com. He's arguably the largest accounting practice. They have a location bartlesville, Oklahoma, Tulsa Oklahoma and Clara more and they're always expanding. And so Paul's on the show quite a bit and Paul, I wanted you to give you an opportunity to ask Matt a hard hitting question or throw Musab ball here. Hey, Matt, this Paul hood, how are you buddy? Good. I just wanted to say I, I'm excited talk to you because Claes been bragging on you like crazy all week and clay is my business coaches. Well, and I think he's been doing that because unlike. Thank you and clay. I actually finished the four year degree of in in college and kind of gave me a handicap. So I started slow. I also started my own business at twenty two have not sold it for one hundred and forty seven million yet, but it's for sale. If somebody wants to buy. Maybe half that I'd probably take what I wanna know. Man is two things one. Did you spilled your company with the intention to sail? Was that your intention when you started day one? And then also, how would you in today's world of people win and lotteries or whatever and being broke five years later, what do you think in your background tribute to your your ability at twenty seven, twenty nine years old to Bill to get that windfall of money and not be an idiot. Okay. Question number one is, did you build the company with the idea of selling it in mind. Yeah, so I know definitely not my first company. We got to the point where the last couple years we knew we wanted to really kind of pump it up and grow as fast as we could hoping to sell it. I don't think we like purposely did anything nutty in preparation of that, like we didn't fire bunch of people into a bunch of weird stuff or anything like that. But we, we knew there were some several strategic companies that would acquire us, and they all came to the table when we were ready. So that worked out and Paul, the second question restate the second. I was just wondering at twenty nine years old. It's it's not only is it rare that you're able to with help build a business that was that bible. But what's really rare is when you cast out to be able to be prudent with that money, we deal with a lot of people and we help them into as world be financially successful, not just work with them on their tax return. And the financial failure rightness country is obscene. And you know. There's very few twenty seven twenty nine year old men are people that could could, you know, get that windfall and actually be smart with it. What do you think is in your background? What would you attribute your your ability to handle that kind of money at that such a young age. Well, I mean some fence. I've done fine other since his I, you know, invested a lot of it Mon company and other startup. So we'll see how all those investments of pan out. Right, but I haven't blown a lot of the money. I didn't like start giving the mine all my friends and family and that kind of stuff. But I just, I guess I came from from nothing. I was actually born in a trailer park and Oklahoma City. I believe you guys are in Oklahoma, and yeah, it was more impressed between hospital in Oklahoma City. But yeah, I don't. I just mid western kind of person just kind of down to earth and pretty prudent about about all those things. And you know, just try to make smart decisions. So you weren't walking around with ten carat diamond earrings in your ears and making it rain making. Yeah, just designed to record own music video or anything like that. What. You could have really transitioned from coating into wrapping. You know, I, that's my side hustle. I'm trying. Okay. Okay. Okay. So now you what's your vision for stack affi- and your life overall? Now, I mean, where do you see your life going? You're thirty seven. Now you.

"Is clay Tiberius Clark on the former US SBA entrepreneur of the year who faithfully gets to join you here on the weekends? With my good friend, Paul hood poet, how are you? My friend, I am amazing Klay. How are you. This morning. Well, I fired up. I'm fired up because I think this topic is applicable for anybody out there, whether you're into personal financial planning or your into just having a successful life. This idea of developing clear financial goals is what we're talking about. But really it can be just we say, we're just talking about developing goals. So I'm going to start with you on the on the thrive time show. We talked about the f. six lifelock we talked about faith, family, finances, fitness, friendship in fun. So I'm gonna pick on you on on the six life, but just three areas of productivity which you seem to be doing well at. Okay, so here we go. Let's go, why do you have to be intentional about designing your f six life in the area of fitness? Now where you're a CPA we're talking about financial planning, but why do you have to be intentional about setting goals for your life in the area. Of fitness. What clay everybody is super, super busy. I, you know. Yeah, I, I think a minute or an hour goes faster today than than it did ten years ago and you have to be deliberate, you so with fitness, you know, with just like anything else in life if you set. If you start with the end in mind and then you design a plan, you work your plan and you measure your results. You can get there, but see, I don't. And this is one of the things I, I really want to ask God. Why? When you know, why is it that all the stuff that tastes good is bad for you and all the stuff that doesn't taste good is good for you. And why is it that our bodies fight us and really, you know, you, you go in and and when I was training for this, this physique bodybuilding show. You know it was very deliberate and everything went great. But then right afterwards, I hit this breakfast buffet clay. Yeah, and I was there for like two and a half hours. So you have to leave, sir. I had to go, but you are. It came on a whole lot quicker and easier. Came back, you know, than than it did went away, but you know, I think Klay one time you said I believe you said that it's it's so easy. It's too easy to to not be successful in the United States is too easy to be mediocre in the right and that somebody who's mediocre in America lives better than ninety percent of the world. And it's the same thing applies to to your physique or your body. You have to control what goes in control and you, and you have to set a specific time to exercise a specific path that you're going to be on. Have all your tools ready. You know you talk about all these things in in your two day workshop that you can't just get up in the morning and say, you know, I'm a workout today, but you don't know where you're going to work out. You don't know what you're going to do when you get there. You have to be very deliberate and have all this planned out ahead of time. I wanna I want to hammer home on this because I think this is something that you said that was. It was pretty pretty powerful. This just in you said that, are you asked the question, why do the things that taste good? Why are those the things that are bad for you? I have a really intense worldview that will probably wake up in the morning and they're going to say, oh, well, I never thought that way, but this is what I think. If you sit down intentionally today and you do this, if you're somebody actually listens to what we're saying and you do it today. If you write down your goals, your f- six goals. This weekend. You'll be probably in the top five percent of our country. I mean, maybe five percent of people write down their goals. Maybe maybe so you write down your goals for your faith, your family, your finances, your fitness, your friendship, and your fun. Okay. So right under goals for faith, your family, your finances, your fitness, your friendship and your.

"Chain or group of clubs within the LA Hollywood area. Do you think about this? These guys have created an absolute nightclub empire that's preferred by Justin Bieber, Drake, Katy Perry, Jessica Alba, Nick Jonas, and countless A-List celebrities called h. wood based in southern California. Forbes did an article and feature piece on these guys, but see you ask them here in just a moment. You're gonna ask them a tough question about how do you raise money, and I think z. that something that a lot of people just aren't aware of of the process, what it looks like to go out there and try to raise money because so many people have a big idea, but how do you fund the ideas these in your mind, what percentage of the entre preneurs have you talked to that were just in Emma. Good for for set percentage. But when you view one hundred entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, is it common front for Noor's to struggle to know how to. Raise capital. Very calming. That's question. I get asked a lot. In fact, lot of people come and try to shark tank me to get me to be an investor to me to. They want to run the idea by me, but also wanna shark tank and try to get me to be a an owner with them. And so I get that a lot and that's most of the energy, but know there's. I hear their answer by the way I want to get your take on this. Paul Hood's take on this. What we have you both you guys on the show today because Paul hood has thousands of customers with his accounting firm hood, CPA's dot com. It's taken years to build that over two decades to build.

"Of the budget is. You're not going to go to Starbucks the next five days because you control where your money goes. Good question. Yeah. So when you're looking at the data when you get it from these clients, I wanna go. Real quicker. Yeah, I don't think you're going to get the data from ninety percent of clients until about three months of tailoring people. I try to shortcut it always is two months. That's why business coaching program. We know people for about we when most people reach out to a business coach aren't a spot where they need to see wins. They need to get ahead significantly financially with a ninety days because they're not doing well. Remember the average American business. If you if there was one hundred companies in America started today, according to Forbes, ninety percent would be out of business within a year now of the ten that make it only four ever profitable ever crazy. So I'm saying is the business coach, our job is to help reduce their expenses as soon as possible. And if we get three months, a data, I mean, I feel like if we, if we get three months a day to this, I think to myself. Jesus. Everyone. Thank you right now for helping this person for making a spiritual connection because I know that in the natural they could not have done it. It was like, requires a spiritual interaction to get three months. It's oppose dealing with a lot of proactive people. He deals with a lot of big businesses and small businesses. So if you're dealing with a startup Paul, you know you, you're gonna, ask them for ninety days where if it's like a big like a co, law fitness, they usually keep their their financial updated all the time. That's what I'm saying Klay though. We all have all I asked him to do is to get their Bank statements, credit card statements. And then a lot of times I want us to do it and they'll pay pay us extra do it. But yeah, they what they do clay and I don't know if this happens to you, they'll come in and we'll start trying to be focused on where the money's going, and then they'll want to go off and talk about, well, should I mar advertise here? Should I write person? They, they divert. They tried to divert in. It's our job just like a personal trainers to keep them focused. But yeah, you're right. If we can get three months, it's at least a start. It's it's there. If if we can get three months of them, compiling data that puts them ahead of ninety, five percent of ninety eight percent of the Sean gets his. You'd love to have a year. Yeah, yes. But I'm saying business coach Bill reach out to me. I know the temperature of the average American business. I get three months right now. I'm happy for you, but Paul is helping people plan out long-term strategies and so he's not in. He's trying to focus on your accounting and not your marketing to. Yeah, we've got an hour power. I'm trying to hit both. And that's kind of why there's a difference there. Next question, Jason, you can ask Paul hood. Any question at all Paul hood, legendary CPA, three offices to serve the Tulsa area as as well as the ability to serve people all over the country, Jason, what do you have there? So I actually worked in accounts payable and accounts receivable over. I started here what company we argue would industry so was a rental car company was oil and gas. Okay. But for both the receivable and. Debatable side..
