What inspired you to start the Carter Capital business?
I have always loved numbers, so in college, accounting was my initial concentration, however, after graduating undergrad I started preparing taxes. I was inspired to start Carter Capital PLLC because I wanted a firm different from any other tax company. Our name originated from my last name and capital is another term for money. Carter Capital started in 2013 as a family tax firm and we later added accounting services, courses, business & credit services, our financial resource library, events, and merchandise. We are the only 24-hour wealth development firm and institute.
Was there a significant business challenge you had to overcome during your journey?
Yes, several significant business challenges occurred when building my business. Initially, my challenge like many other entrepreneurs was obtaining capital and funding. I overcame funding challenges by becoming a bankable company, establishing business credit, and bookkeeping to ensure I was presented as a profitable company. Once I was positioned and correctly registered, I began to scale Carter Capital, PLLC.
