As a CPA and Financial Advisor this blog will cover a wide variety of topics ranging from personal financial planning and retirement planning to tax and accounting.  I work a lot with small business owners and as one myself we'll cover issues that have arisen in many conversations with new and established business owners.

The information that you will see is meant to be educational in nature,  Everyone's financial and tax situation is different and what may apply to you may not apply to someone else.  Accordingly, no posts should be taken as legal, official guidance for you but rather use this information as a starting point to pursue the correct action to take for your needs.
