Power Up! For the past 23 years we have had great success as a local business and many of our readers use our office as a referral agency for service providers and products sold within out community. When looking for just about anything, from a florist, to a hair dresser, to a gutter cleaning service; and everything in between, we are more than happy to recommend any of our wonderful advertisers! With companies such as Yelp and Angie’s List that have come into successful existence, it has become apparent of the needs from our society that people greatly prefer to use companies that have been referred to them rather than a cold call from a list of providers. We are pleased to announce and to support the businesses in East Contra Costa County with the BEST Power Partnering and Referral Program! When you advertise with us, not only do you get your marketing message in a beautiful color print ad that is directly delivered to 57,000 homes and businesses, you also get our online services such as, social media posts, website presence and digital TV advertising that is seen by 10,000 people a month; you also get a referral service! We are so proud of our advertisers that we want to share their great work and help our community continue to grow! The Monthly Grapevine, as a team, have made it our mission to be your Power Partner!

Who’s Who... in East County

World Class Window Coverings is a local family owned and operated company. They offer a full line of quality window treatments, including shutters, blinds, solar shades, roman shades, sunscreens, custom drapery and more! With a very highly trained staff (no subcontractors), they are passionate about finding the perfect window treatment for your home, so that you will be happy for many years to come. Owner, Dustin Yocum has been in the industry for over 17 years. He’s always had a love for window treatments, but his true passion is shutters. In 2008, Dustin’s wife and co-owner, Melisa wanted to spend more time at home with the kids, so she gave up her job as a teacher to help run the family business. Since then, they have been working very hard to create a company that has integrity and a reputation for amazing customer service. They strive to set an example for their children and inspire them to work hard and be ethical in whatever they commit to. Melisa says, “Owning a small business is so challenging, but the relationships we’ve built as a result has made it all worth it.” In the past, Dustin worked for many different window covering corporations and a large shutter manufacturer. His diverse background has allowed him to pull from those experiences to build a reputable company. “Ultimately,” Melissa says, “We don’t think there is any education or experience that prepares you for running your own business. Instead, we believe the key to success for a small business is passion, dedication, tons of hard work and perseverance. There are so many ups and downs, but if you truly love what you do, then you just keep pushing forward.” What Melisa and Dustin believe sets them apart is good old-fashioned customer service. They see value in every customer and in every job they complete and, as such, they treat a customer’s home as if it was their own, listen carefully to customer’s needs and work with them on selecting different options. They also want customers to feel like they were treated with respect, that their business was truly appreciated and to feel confident in referring World Class to friends and family, hopefully, gaining a customer for life.

AMY’S BRIGHT ADVICE

Who Is Your Power Partner And What Can They Do For Your Business? Every company has a perfect power partner and ideally you, as a highly effective networking agent, will be able to not just find one power partner, but multiple. Last month we discussed the importance of branding and marketing. Branding and marketing, if done correctly, will bring in many cold leads for your company. Power Partners will bring your company warm leads. You might be asking what is a warm lead? A warm lead comes to you, in some or most cases, already sold by someone else who referred them to you. Your job as the skilled sales person is just the close. The biggest difference between a warm and a cold lead is the conversion rate. Obviously, the amount of leads that you receive isn’t important if you are unable to convert those leads into clients. Power partners are a group of people of complementary professions. They work

with the same clients, but do not take business away from each other. Great examples of these are easily found in the real estate and wedding industries. A realtor, mortgage broker, building inspector, title agency, and a real estate attorney all service clients looking to purchase property. A wedding planner, photographer, and florist are among the many professions that cater to the brideto-be. These professions form a power team, when one person in the team gets business, he or she can refer the client to every other member in the team.

If you invest in your power partner and they do the same for you and your company the greater the probability of you recognizing their targeted prospects, giving a compelling testimonial and creating a money-making referral for each other. The biggest advice I can tell you about forming your power partner is to be very careful and selective. Research them and their company intensely because they will become a reflection of you and your company good or bad. The most important thing in sales is your reputation and the old quote says it best, “Fools surround themselves with fools and wise are surrounded by wise!”

Successful business people have the ability to select and cultivate mutually beneficial relationships with high-quality people in strategically important business categories, and this ability is a core competency for maximum success in networking. So, how do you cultivate such relationships? It’s vital that you find out as much as possible about your partners so that you can send the right kind of business their way. You need to learn what makes your power partner special as a person, as well as, how to recognize your partner’s best prospects. As a power partner, your job is to help potential leads like, trust and want to do business with your power partners… while they are doing the same thing for you.

Amy Bright has 20 years of sales and marketing experience. If you would like help branding your company please contact her at 925-634-0880 or at sales@ monthlygrapevine.com.

LAW OFFICES OF JOAN GRIMES

no estate tax due because wife takes all property by way of the marital deduction (which is unlimited). Because husband’s personal exemption of $5.45 was not used, the wife can add his $5.45 to her exemption at the time of her death by filing a 706 tax form.

Do You Still Have an AB or ByPass Trust? Up until 2011, it was very common for estate planning attorneys to draft an AB or ByPass Trust for clients. The purpose of the AB/ByPass Trust was to create estate tax savings by keeping a deceased spouse’s property out of the estate of the surviving spouse. However in 2011, federal estate tax laws were changed dramatically to exempt most estates from paying any estate taxes. For 2016, the exemption for each person is $5.45 million. The amount will go up each year based on a “cost of living” increase. In addition, under the rule change called “Portability”, a surviving spouse may use any unused portion of a deceased spouse’s estate tax exemption upon filing a 706 tax return. For example, a couple has an estate of $7 million. The husband dies, leaving his wife with an estate of $7 million. There is

The personal exemption and portability have meant that very, very few people will pay any estate tax. Therefore, the traditional AB Trust is no longer necessary or useful for most people. That is not to say that there is anything wrong in keeping an existing AB Trust. HOWEVER, there are serious drawbacks which you should be aware. Specifically, (1) with an AB Trust there are restrictions on what a surviving spouse can do with property in the ByPass Trust created with deceased spouse’s assets i.e. making it is difficult to sell assets; (2) with an AB Trust, the surviving spouse cannot make gifts to anyone of the ByPass property and (3) with an AB Trust there can be substantial costs involved in managing the Trust after the death of the first spouse including establishing the ByPass trust, preparing the trust tax return each year and record keeping to ensure that the property in ByPass Trust is kept separate from the surviving spouse’s assets.

In most cases, an AB/ByPassTrust is no longer necessary or advisable for estate planning. If you have not looked at your Trust recently, I strongly encourage you to review it and see whether it provides for an AB Trust. If it does provide for an AB/ ByPass Trust, I would encourage you to seek legal counsel to see whether it may be in your best interest to amend or restate the Trust to remove the AB Trust provisions. If you have any questions regarding an existing Trust, I see people every day for a FREE 30 minute consultation in Walnut Creek and Brentwood.
