Entrepreneur Success Story: How Canva Reached a $15 Billion Evaluation and Made Its Young Founders Billionaires

A big part of this has to do with the way that the human brain works. According to one recent study, when people hear information, they generally only remember about 10% of what they’re exposed to. If that information is paired with relevant visuals – be it in the form of a video or even static content like a photo or infographic – they remember 65% of it on average. All told, it’s estimated that between 51% and 80% of all businesses in every industry will rely heavily on visual content in 2021 – a trend that shows absolutely no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

How Can You Save a Business After the Owner Dies?

How Can You Save a Business After the Owner Dies?

If the business was established as a partnership and the surviving partner has equity in the business, then a buy-sell agreement can provide a quick solution, particularly if there is an insurance policy that’s been set up specifically to facilitate the buyout. Those who worked with an experienced attorney or accountant when setting the business up generally have the good fortune of having a plan in place whether there’s a partnership or not, but that is not always the case.

Barry Peters

Barry A. Peters is the Managing Director of Premier Tax & Finance, providing tax and financial management services to start-ups, small businesses and individuals. PTF has a strong staff with experienced bookkeepers, tax preparers and administrators.

Peters began his career as a Corporate Internal Auditor for billion-dollar companies such as United Technologies, Quaker Oats, TransAmerica & Rheem Mfg. This is where he developed his internal control expertise, analytical skills and general accounting knowledge.

Peters has been preparing taxes since he received his CPA in 1984. Until 2014, tax accounting was a secondary service in that working as a startup CFO was top priority, leaving little time available for tax preparation. In 2014 the focus of the company shifted to tax preparation and representation. Peters obtained his Enrolled Agent (EA) designation from the IRS so that people from all states can be served. As a result, the company changed its name from Premier Financial Management to Premier Tax and Finance to reflect the emphasis on tax. Peters has served as Managing Director of Premier Tax and Finance since 2010.
