Justin recently spoke at a meeting for advertisers of this publication, most of whom are small business owners looking for excellent and understandable tax advice. They came knowing they’d be listening to something they had to know about but not sure it would be interesting. They left thrilled with how enjoyable learning about taxes really was! Not only did they learn what they needed, Justin’s presentation was so interesting and lively that the audience didn’t want the meeting to end.
Justin says, “The best advice I would offer anyone in the small business arena is to invest in a GOOD CPA, one who will promote integrity and think outside the box to be certain that your company is being proactive when planning for the future.”
