“I have worked closely with small and medium size business owners for over 20 years, and have developed an understanding of what makes one business successful and another less so. Open, robust communication with business owners is vital in gaining this understanding and helps me advise accordingly. Tax minimization is part of the success puzzle but so too is goal setting - personal and business, protecting assets and accumulating personal wealth. Together these key components provide the framework for the valuable relationships I form with clients.”
