What I Do and Why it is Important For Small Business Owners

| January 11, 2022

Running your own business can be one of the most stressful and, conversely, the most rewarding accomplishments of your life. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, consistently, 20% of start-up small businesses fail in the first year, and only 50% of the small businesses created make it to their fifth year in business1. While these statistics seem daunting, they are not insurmountable. Being successful at running a small business takes pre-planning, active management, and flexibility.

How can I help

As a Certified Financial PlannerTM professional, I can help you create a start-up plan if you want to start a new business. We will review structure options, financing strategies, accounting and tax solutions, and workplace management. I will work with you to determine the best options for your situation so that you can start your new venture off on the right foot.

If you already have a business, I can evaluate your current position and look for efficiencies to help your business thrive. I can also work with you to set up employee benefits like insurance and retirement plans.

One thing that is always true in business planning is that there is no 'one-size-fits-all' plan. Each and every business owner, model, requirements, and constraint are vastly different. That is why I pride myself on creating a custom plan for each business owner - because they deserve it.
