Lesson 4 ƛ Learn to minimize the taxes you pay Where the cash flows make sense, you are better off managing your finances through a corporation rather than as an employee, because of the different tax advantages you can get As an individual, your income is taxed, and what you have left is your disposable income As a corporation, you first make your money, then you take out your expenses.
