Trump's Big Tax Cut: A Waste of Time or a Big Economic Growth Driver?

And have all Americans benefited?

“What these tax cuts allowed us to do was to put that money to work, invest back into equipment, invest back into our team members,” says Joseph Semprevivo. (Photo courtesy of Joseph Semprevivo)

del Guidice: Well, last but not least, Joseph, you’re the author of a bestselling and award-winning book, “Madness, Miracles, Millions.” Can you tell us a little bit about the book?

Semprevivo: Yes. We wrote it because we struggled so much. Our lives were up and down between medical issues and financial issues and we struggled and we failed. We thought we were very alone. And now we’ve been out there selling the book and talking to people, we found that our story is not unique. Everybody has struggles, whether it’s in business or relationships or whatever.

So we wrote this book to really touch people’s lives, to tell them, “You’re not the only one going through it like we thought we were the only one going through it.” And people read into, “Wow, it’s one of the most inspiring books we’ve ever read.” So it’s to inspire people.

It talks about business, it talks about life and love, and my parents’ relationship, and how each day is a very a blessed day in our country and how we’re very fortunate [that] when we get hit with tragedies, we can become triumphant by our attitude and our mindset. So that’s why we wrote it.

del Guidice: Well, Joseph, thank you so much for being with us today on The Daily Signal Podcast. It’s always a pleasure to talk to you.
