  • CSA – Cost Segregation Analysis 
  • The process of a CSA – cost segregation is a more advanced form of depreciation. 
  • You have to understand what depreciation is and why that’s so beneficial. 
  • Depreciation allows you to literally write off the entire value of that building off 
  • Depreciation is accounting for wear and tear and value of building goes down overtime 
  • The key is constantly trying to add value to other people, helping other people giving to other people 10 times more than you would ever expect to receive in return.
