Doug Collins is an entrepreneur, author, and coach who has spent the past two decades building a successful home-based business. In his early 20s, he began to feel an innate desire to be self-employed and work for himself. It wasn't until 1998 that he took this desire seriously and started his first home-based business. Despite humble beginnings, Doug quickly built an international online business from home part-time.
Two decades later, in 2010, Doug discovered that his corporate executive position was going to be terminated due to a North American reorganization and merger. That's when he took the leap and left his 22-year career to follow his long-held dream of being self-employed and working from home full-time.
Over the past decade, Doug has also focused on finding tax strategies that allow him to reduce his income tax burden. He realized the need for others to understand all the home-based tax write-offs available to them. In 2018, he created an online course and coaching platform called Home Business Tax Secrets & Productivity System.
In March 2020, as the pandemic hit and widespread lockdowns began, Doug decided to use his time to write a book to help others learn how to "Write-Off Almost Anything" in their home-based businesses. In August 2020, he published his first book, "The Home-Based Business Guide to Write-Off Almost Anything," which became a #1 Best Seller on Amazon.
Today, Doug continues to grow his own home-based direct sales business while supporting a community of motivated home-based entrepreneurs across North America through his "Home Business Tax Secrets" Facebook group. He often shares his message of tax savings on social media.
