In my seminars, I teach bankers how to extract useful information from the customer's personal and business tax returns. It occurred to me that I've never attempted to describe the process to myself, let alone others. That's about to change.
Truth be told, the tax return talks to me - like the narrator of a good story. Sometimes the story takes the form of a mystery, a drama occasionally. But always alive - moving toward something. Not knowing where it will lead keeps me engaged; the twists and turns of the journey of equal import to the destination. And, I've learned that the tax return is soft spoken, never shouts. I've had to train myself to listen with an educated ear.
Sound ' a little odd'? Maybe, but it works for me. And it may work for you.
