Lured by the Sweet Smell of Chocolate
From JD Bliss comes the savory story of a one-time tax lawyer turned gourmet chocolate entrepreneur. Steven Wallace's decision to leave a Washington, D.C., tax law practice in 1988 started him down the road to founding The Omanhene Cocoa Bean Company. On the contrast between being a tax lawyer and an entrepreneur, Wallace says:
"Omanhene challenges all of my strengths and my full intellect. That compares to tax law, where you're concerned about things like the length of a specific depreciation period for a particular asset rather than the larger strategic picture. My company gives me an outlet for my creative side in issues like packaging and branding."
If Wallace thinks running an international business is more interesting than practicing tax law, it can only be because he has not listed to The Complete Internal Revenue Code Podcast Project.
