[06:28] For a lot of our listeners, they start their businesses because they’re excellent at their craft, but then they may overlook some details of the business and end up paying more taxes than they need.

[16:41] Can you talk a little bit about, not only are you saving the money on taxes when you pay your kids, but how you can use that money to pay for insurance or… school?
