They could easily have just gotten his music for free elsewhere.

What works is specialization and deep expertise in whatever we do. In line with this, we have fine-tuned our hiring strategy and team structures.

“I didn’t even really know the other board members. Everything I had done with this company had been motivated by greed. I didn’t like any of them.

So I followed my own advice: was I physically taking care of myself? Check. Was I trying to surround myself with people who I loved and who loved me? Check—not on the board, but on the show, and my family and friends. Was I creative every day? Check. Was I taking care of my spiritually? Check. All this means is: I was alive. Might as well enjoy it. Might as well love it. Might as well immerse myself in it. The horror of losing $9 million might change my bank account. But what a story!”
Emilio Azul's distributive share of ABC partnership's deductible expenses for the removal of architectural barriers was $14,000. Emilio had $12,000 of similar expenses in his sole proprietorship. He elected to deduct $7,000 of them. Emilio allocated the remaining $8,000 of the $15,000 limit to his share of ABC's expenses. Emilio can add the excess $5,000 of his own expenses to the basis of the property used in his business. Also, if ABC can show that Emilio could not deduct $6,000 ($14,000 – $8,000) of his share of the partnership's expenses because of how Emilio applied the limit, ABC can add $6,000 to the basis of its property.
