Travis discussed with us the new tax regulations and adjustments that homeowners are already getting in their mailboxes and what to expect in the future. He also spoke with us about the entrepreneurial side of things, telling us how businesses often fail due to faulty paperwork made in the beginning stages of the company. He told us of an example where partners were very engaged in the business, but after time they broke up and the business went under because the proper separation arrangements weren’t in place.
