You can lead a client to your site but you can't make him/her click?

We've all heard the adage, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink". We can spend all day wondering what that means and how it can relate to our life and business. But why?

And here's another "why":

Why have you seen one or all of these "ads" below and not clicked to find out how we have identified greater than $4 Billion in benefits for businesses and business owners like you?

Please don't wait (I can promise you that you will kick yourself tomorrow if you don't).

Save thousands of dollars on property taxes (this doesn't trigger an audit and your tax professionals haven't told you about this; see for yourself and then show them this if you want).

If you rent and don't own your building but hire at least 10 or more employees, your business qualifies. Be sure that you are redeeming your credits and monies.

Finally, everyone works for someone or is looking. Check this out and pass it on to anyone looking for a job. (GM workers, are you seeing this?)

OK, that's all the water I've got for you today. There is no sense in "kicking a dead horse". 

Wait, there is one more thing. We are looking for consultants in a few geographical locations who will join us in offering the above to businesses (not multilevel). CLICK HERE to be considered.

For consultants and salespeople: "The less I say the more I make... "

Ter’s Weekly

Good day!

Today I want to share a bit about me and my coaching services and how you can use this information in realizing more clients and business by doing the same thing.

Actually, this idea is from a fellow coach and consultant and I wanted to share it with you. Here are his words with mine in “parenthesis”.

One small tweak that rakes in sales even if you have a small audience (or just starting your business, have a small customer base, etc.).

Growing up and being raised by my great grandparents did leave me with some "old school" wisdom. (I can relate, how about you?)


My great-grandfather would look down his thin black-rimmed glasses and say to me...

"You've got two ears and one mouth for a reason boy.

Listen more than you talk...

That way when you do, you'll actually say something important.

(That's a great lesson; actually, say something important!!!)

99% of the time conflict comes from not listening."

I never forgot that...

Because the same thing is true when it comes to attracting the "right" kind of clients and making sales. (for my clients that would be customers, patients, students, attendees, etc.).

I see FAR too many coaches & experts (business people, CPAs, Doctors, Dentists, Real Estate Agents, Salespeople...) looking for the perfect "pitch" that tells people what they "do." (Ouch!!!)

Or they're too focused on "the funnel" and all those other fancy parts. (If you don't know what a "funnel" is, this is a term mostly used by Internet marketers and those marketing on the Internet, but offline business people use this even though they may not know it or use it as good as they could. Your marketing is a "funnel" and attracts people to it and they "fall" into it and come out as different types of customers. Not literally of course; "no customers were harmed during the filming of this funnel"; sorry, I had to say it. If you would like to improve your marketing funnel, let's talk).

This results in hearing (the words), "I gotta think about it" at the end of calls. 

Or worse...

Little to no response at all from the market and a lot of wasted money on fancy landing pages and lead magnets (that's fancy ads; newspaper, radio, TV etc. etc. for my offline clients).

If there's a conflict with your cash flow then maybe this is what's happening? (Definition of "this" is YOU ARE TALKING TOO MUCH!). 

(One of my mentor's mantras is: "The less I do the more I make". I think it is equally true that "The less I say, the more I make").


If you're ready to add another $30k to $50k (or whatever figure amount you can imagine) to your bank account this holiday season...

Might I suggest you listen up? :)

I started REALLY listening...

Making offers of perceived value...

And then I started collecting BIG cash deposits from clients.

MANY times without even a phone call.

So Yes, people are buying during Christmas.

But do you really know why?

Because their problems don't go away just because it's Christmas. 

What do you think? These are great words of wisdom right? Sure, I hear you say, I already knew that I hear you say. And I say
friendly reminders are great unless they are encased in an envelope marked “overdue”!

Friendly reminders are great unless they are
encased in an envelope marked “overdue”!

Ter Scott, Life & Legacy Coach™ and Bricks to Clicks Business Consultant™

Are you "price conscious" but are still unaware of these uncaptured monies for your business?

You or someone you know, when seeing a gas sign with a penny or two cheaper than elsewhere, will usually STOP to save that penny or two. You know exactly what I’m talking about right? 

And that’s great because we should be price conscious; especially when we’re in business. Now, what if I were to tell you that if you are in business you and you have 10 employees that you are probably sitting on $20K to $100K that you don’t know about but can get with our help, would you STOP and check it out?

What does 

Westinghouse, Holiday Inn, Popeyes, Culvers, Toyota, Lazy Boy, Big Boy Restaurants 

and literally, thousands of other companies employing from 10 employees to thousands know and are doing that you don’t know or are doing?

This is absolutely for real and our over 1000 reps across the US help business people find tax incentives and business reductions like this every day with our proprietary software; that no one else has.

Since 2004 we’ve been helping companies obtain every tax credit and incentive they are entitled to. To date, we have uncovered over $500 million in benefits for our clients. This includes incentives for Manufacturers, Commercial Property Owners, and Employers.

For instance, one program which is available to ALL employers can significantly reduce, and in many cases eliminate, a Federal Tax liability. The average benefit per eligible employee is $2,400 and can be as much as $9,600.

By utilizing Specialized Tax Incentives at the Local, State, and Federal level, you will increase cash flow and improve your bottom line. Simply put, Specialized Tax Incentives will make your company more profitable.

Want your company to be more profitable? Find out today. With a 15 minute meeting, we can typically gather enough information about your business to begin the process.

Restaurant Owners in Duluth MN Area Easily Recapture Monies to Reinvest into Their Businesses.


Did you attend the recent Upper Lakes Food Expo in Duluth MN? If so, even if I did not speak with you personally or you attended as an owner of a business in the hospitality industry, this "open letter" is for you. This is the exact letter I use to follow up with the people having exhibits at the show but again, if you own a restaurant or a similar related business, this certainly applies to you as well. 

Here goes... 

As a quick follow up to when I was the Upper Lakes Food event recently, I first wanted to congratulate you on a fine looking booth and sincerely hope you profit greatly from your efforts. I have several clients who either attended or exhibited. I for one will promote you to my business contacts (I work with many restaurants in both MN and WI).

I wanted to follow up with this quick note about how I can help you and your company profit as well. My clients invited me because I’ve helped them prosper and capture monies that they now use for payroll, remodeling and investing in other ways into their companies.

Through my team of professionals at Stryde Savings in Fenton Michigan, I save businesses money on their tax incentives and other business expenses. Why refuse money which is yours but not easily within your reach; without our help? We’ve recaptured over $500M for companies, Caterpillar, Toyota, Big Boy Restaurants and so many others like yours since 2005 and I can do the same for you.

We have helped thousands of companies reduce expenses and obtain large federal tax incentives that would otherwise go uncaptured.  Over 90% of all businesses can benefit from one or more of our services.

You don’t change vendors, but learn how your company can save money on:
All Credit Card Processing - Employer Payroll Tax Incentives - Parcel Shipping - Property Owner Tax Incentives - Property Taxes - Waste & Recycling and more.

We are the only service like this in America and we work on a contingency basis; if we don’t find you money, you don’t pay.

So again, thanks for your time both at the show and now here reading this letter. Hopefully now you are thanking yourself that we met and you have read this letter. We’ve saved companies just like yours over $500M and now it’s your turn. But, you need to call me or go to my quick calculation site. .You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what we are able to do for you and how fast you’ll have monies to reinvest into your business.  

You can call my cell (and please leave a message if I’m unavailable; I’m probably helping another client to save and recapture monies). Or, you can use our simple “Show Me My Refund Estimate” Calculator. I’ve shortened the URL address to make it easier to type into your browser:

I hope you’ll act on this as this as soon as you can while you are thinking about this. Either way, I wish you continued success and as I mentioned at the outset, I will promote your product/service to my contacts.

Make it a great day!
Terry (Ter) Scott.

Business to Business Consultants Wanted, by Your Local Business Owners...

My name is Ter Scott and I'm going to share with you, right now, that if you work with business owners on a one to one basis, that you are doing a disservice to them by not saving them on their taxes and other business expenses.

Dear fellow entrepreneur,

People see my lifestyle and ask me what I do; well I do a lot of things, but I love my life. Every day I get closer to doing more, being more and having more.

One of the great revenue generators for me is working with Stryde Solutions. They are a great team of researchers who via their proprietary programs keep up to the minute tabs on every way a business can save on taxes and reduce costs. For me (and also you if you choose to join) I simply direct my business clients to a couple of online calculators, they fill in the numbers and the team at Fenton Michigan do all the work. I’m basically an “inviter” and market the services to my local business clients and across the country online.

If you work with business owners in any way shape or form, you should consider offering this tax and business expense reduction platform to your existing clients; it also gets your foot in the door with new clients as well (who doesn’t welcome someone who is going to give them money?).

Below are links which are “live” and take you (or a business owner) to the appropriate savings calculator. When you join my team (that’s the last link below) you’ll have your own lead capturing sites just like these. The additional difference is when you join my team you’ll get all of my marketing expertise to assist in your success (plus don’t forget you’ll have a coach at Stryde too!)

So, here are the links. Look at all and then if interested, watch the video using the last link below. If you are involved in any of the specific industries listed here*, let me know and I’ll also send you a video exclusive to your market.

Make it a great day!

Cost Segregation Study Overview
Engineering based cost segregation studies permit commercial real estate owners to reclassify real property for depreciation purposes and reclassify it as more rapidly depreciating personal property. This reclassification results in significant cash flow benefits in both present and future years through considerably shorter depreciable tax life and accelerated depreciation methods.

History of the Program
Cost Segregation has evolved from similar processes used in the 1970s and 1980s to complete investment tax credit studies. Investment Tax Credit (ITC) – When this credit was repealed in 1986, most assumed cost segregation studies provided no further benefit under the new tax law. However, in 1997 a landmark tax court case, Hospital Corporation of America succeed in defending the application of engineering-based cost segregation as a viable method to differentiate real and personal property under the existing law.
In 2004 the IRS released the Audit & Technique Guideline, making clear the expected process of performing a successful Cost Segregation Study. This opened the doors for many small and midsize companies to begin taking advantage of what was previously only pursued by larger companies.

Who Qualifies for Cost Segregation?
Any commercial property owner who has done the following since 1987:

  • Purchased a commercial building or facility
  • Constructed a new commercial building
  • Renovated, remodeled, restored or expanded an existing facility
  • Paid for facility leasehold improvement

What are the Benefits of a Cost Segregation Study?

According to the U.S. Treasury Department, “Cost Segregation Studies are a lucrative tax strategy that should be considered in almost every real estate purchase.”
An average Cost Segregation Study offers approximately $150,000 in additional depreciation per $1 million dollars in purchase or construction cost over the normal 39-year straight-line method.

“Cost Segregation Studies are a lucrative tax strategy that should be considered in almost every real estate purchase.” -U.S. Treasury

“…Cost Segregation Studies should be performed by qualified individuals or firms such as those employing personnel competent in design, construction, auditing, and estimating procedures relating to building construction.” -U.S. Internal Revenue Service

GMG utilizes a team of highly qualified professionals adheres to the IRS recognized Detailed Engineering Approach to perform all Cost Segregation Studies. This methodology maximizes benefits and assures that IRS guidelines are followed.

Getting Started

An initial consultation along with a feasibility report is conducted to determine the cash flow and net present value (NPV) benefits. The consultation allows our professionals to evaluate your current tax status and your future business plans along with your CPA to determine if a study would be of benefit.
The initial consultation is a simple and quick process. To schedule your consultation,

Poor Treatment by Business Owner to Business Advisor costs company Thousands.

A business professional's adventure...

Much of what I do is done via the phone, email and screen share. But at times I will see corporate clients at their location. Yesterday when I was in an area I stopped in to drop off some materials about our service and met with what I felt was a "hostile" and at least minimally a "foolish" response.

Since I believe in second chances (and realize that not all business people know about the "Law of 250") I invested more time in composing a letter and a stamp to mail this business owner a second opportunity.

First, I will share here, my "Gift" which is my review of his action on an online business review site. (It's a gift if he finds it and modifies his behavior with vendors and advisors who visit his store in the future). I then will share my letter that I sent him the next day. I share this episode with you so you, dear reader, as a business "visitor" or "host" will treat one another with the respect that each of you deserves.

Here's my review (this is actually edited a bit to make appropriate for my Facebook page(s): 

I was in (Town name) MN today seeing other clients. I help business owners save money on their tax incentives and property taxes. We normally work with clients much bigger than this like Caterpillar and Toyota but I saw this hardware business and thought I'd stop in. When the gal at the counter told me that I should say hello to (Business owner's name), who was standing nearby, I said hello and I explained briefly what we do and he said he was going to just toss my paperwork and to basically leave. I would say he acted pretty rudely and has no idea that he probably threw away hundreds of thousands of dollars. I predict that if he treats every business advisor in this way that he probably won't be in business within 10 years. It never ceases to amaze me how many business owners do not know about the law of 250.

 Here's my follow-up letter that I sent the next day: 

Hello (Business Owner Name),

We had the “pleasure” of meeting each other yesterday at your place of business when I was in the area seeing other clients. It appeared that I must have caught you at a bad time.

My company typically works with companies much larger than yours but I was impressed with your building and stopped knowing that you most likely have monies which are owed you in property taxes. In the future, you may hear that our Stryde Solutions services may be available to you via (name of corporate "chain") on a corporate level in the future, but for now, we are seeing business owners one on one.

Since my visit caught you off guard when I wanted to drop off materials for your perusal and you (in a manner) declined, I wanted to offer you another opportunity since the paper you wanted to immediately throw away without reading cost me only pennies to produce but represents perhaps $100,000 or more to you in working capital. We find monies for our clients Caterpillar, Toyota, Big Boy Restaurants, and others every day and I know that we can do so for you as well. You stated that “you had this all covered” but if you did, I wouldn’t have been standing there in your store. Obviously, with the large transactions we do, I don’t waste my time on lost causes. Plus, I think you’d remember if your accountant or CPA handed you a check for $100,000 last tax season.  

So I’m sending you this communication, with the information sheet about how this will be your most important tax season ever; which I invite you to give to your accountant and he or she can contact me if you’d like.

Plus, I’m also including a “gift”, The Business Person’s Prayer, which has helped me as a business person of over 25 years.

Regardless of how you choose to act on this information, I wish you continued prosperity in the years to come.

Terry (Ter) Scott

QUESTION TO YOU, MY READER: By sending this letter to this person, am I "casting pearls before swine"?

By the way, the services I was speaking to my clients about (and ultimately trying to share with this store owner) is both the WOTC and Cost Seg Programs, which many business owners do think they "have taken care of" but sadly, after this year's taxes they will be sadly found mistaken. Of course, then it is too late, and yes, many tax professionals will be taken to task and lose these clients. 

You don't have to be among them. We've created a quick site for you to check things out yourself (or by all means, share with your tax professionals) for both WOTC and Cost Seg

Simply click on the appropriate images below. It only takes minutes to find out for yourself.

2018 Commercial Property Owners: Calculate your Benefits here.

Do you, as a business owner, also own commercial buildings?

As a commercial property owner, you need to be aware that tax code changes have left us with a very small window of time over the next few weeks to get your property benefit.   

A cost segregation filed with your 2017 taxes is worth 40% more than one filed next year.  The value of your depreciation as a whole just took a huge hit with this tax change, and this is the last year you're allowed to do a "catch up" and reclaim all that money.

Most buildings we’re done during years where tax rates were at their highest and depreciated things under the assumption that you'd get those deductions "over time".   Now, due to the tax changes you still get some of your money, but it's at 21% instead of 35% (therefore, your overall deduction is worth 40% less next year than it is this year).

You still have time to get your benefit however, we need to act fast.  In order to meet this timeline demand, we’ve created an online solution for you to check and initiate your pending benefit. 


What type of businesses and commercial property owners can benefit from doing a Cost Seg Analysis?

The only true way to know is to just plug in your numbers in our online calculator. There is no obligation to find out what your estimated return is and if we can help or not.

Small resort:

Image result for resort small

Large resort:

Image result for resort large

I've also been asked if this includes resort owners. The answer is "yes". Of course, it all depends on the number of buildings are on the property and a few other variables but we've found that less than 90% of business owners have ever checked on this and anyone can check with our online software for free!

You've heard things said like,
"There's no such thing as a stupid question" and "The only stupid question is the one not asked". Well, there's a key word in both of those sentences and it was forbidden for my kids to use it while growing up.

You may also have heard that "knowledge is power", yes, but I will tell you that just knowledge is impotent without action. So I'm taking action here by offering you my expertise in the three areas of my business and invite you to take action by first asking me any question (about MONEY, MARKETING, MOTIVATION) on any Friday and then when I offer my thoughts, hopefully, you'll act on it.

This is a great way to get answers from me without paying a coaching or mentor fee. Every Friday come to this very page and leave your question in the comments below. I monitor everything before it's published so you don't have to worry about confidentiality if you ask me to not share specifics.

You see your answer in future articles.

As always, make it a great day!

Ter Scott!

PS. If I don’t know the answer, I will find it!

I will also share many free and no – fee solutions, resources, and reputable paid sources to learn more about MONEY, MARKETING and/or MOTIVATION. 

Remember that your question or comment is not published immediately as all are moderated before publishing so if you would like your request to remain private, just let me know.

9 out of 10 Commercial Property Investors 

are Overpaying on Income Taxes

Year after year, the Federal Government has continued to incentivize those who invest in Commercial Property. The IRS has established guidelines that, if ignored, cause commercial real estate investors to pay more in taxes than they should.
What guidelines are being ignored by Commercial Property Investors?
Those revolving around Accelerated Depreciation; known in the taxation world as Property Cost Segregation.
Ramifications of Improper Depreciation Allocation
Most commercial property investors do not truly understand the substantial benefits of accelerated depreciation. This is evidenced by our analysis of thousands of depreciation schedules over the years. We have found less than 10% of investors are properly depreciating their properties. The most common misconception is, “I am going to get this money anyway”. Is this a true or false statement?
Let’s investigate…
  1. Capital Gains vs Ordinary Income Rates
    Although the mechanics of these calculations are not always as simplistic as we will be making it for this example, the short response is – increased depreciation leads to paying taxes at the capital gains rate as opposed to the ordinary income rate. Since capital gains rates are likely much lower than the Investor’s income tax rate, they would benefit from accelerated depreciation.
  2. Time Value of Money
    Simply put, your dollar is worth more today than it will be in the future. A tax dollar saved today, therefore, is worth more than a tax dollar saved in the future. Why lock up tax savings in your property for 27-39 years when you can receive it today?
  3. Catch-Up Depreciation
    If you have not completed a Cost Segregation study on your property that you have held for a period of time, did you know that you can capture your entire missed benefit immediately? The IRS allows you to complete a 481 adjustment thus enabling you to catch up all the missed accelerated depreciation into the current tax year. This provision alone could save you hundreds of thousands immediately!
  4. The Power of Cash in hand
    You are a real estate “investor”. This means you understand the investing power of having funds in your hand today. Cash today [in the form of tax savings] enables you to invest in additional properties. The benefits of this are exponential and allow continued growth of your investment portfolio.
“Our accountant told us about this opportunity after we did our remodel but indicated that the cost could possibly outweigh the benefits. After having our plan done by GMG and utilizing it in our tax preparation our accountant tells us that it was a very good investment that will recoup itself many times over in the years to come.” Linda Barkey, Owner, Medical Facility
Correct allocation of real estate depreciation is essential for Commercial Property Investors to effectively manage their tax situation. Are you one of the 90% who is missing out on opportunities that 10% of your competitors are capturing?
