From the thought to the creation of “No Business Left Behind,” have your expectations remained the same or changed?

When I created ‘No Business Left Behind’, I hoped that many businesses would benefit from the tax review and take advantage of the initiative. My main goal was to provide a useful resource for people who are starting businesses and may not be familiar with the tax laws and regulations, particularly what qualifies as expenses. At the same time, I aimed to promote the initiative in a way that would not lead to an overwhelming amount of participation. I believe that by striking a balance in promoting the initiative, we were able to reach a good number of businesses and provide them with valuable support.


You’re offering a free tax review to clients until the official tax filing deadline of April 18th. Why is important to have a business review, especially during or before tax time?

We are excited to offer a complimentary tax review to our clients until the official tax filing deadline of April 18th. We understand that tax time can be stressful for businesses and having a review can be extremely helpful. Our review process is designed to identify any missing information, write-offs, or receipts, and to make sure our clients are well-prepared for tax filings. This is particularly important for businesses that do not have a formal billing system in place. By having a review, we provide our clients with the knowledge they need to make informed financial decisions and avoid any unpleasant surprises during tax season. We are committed to supporting our client’s success, and offering a free tax review is just one way we demonstrate that commitment.

What can clients or potential clients expect to learn from receiving this review?

Clients or potential clients who receive our tax review can expect to learn valuable information about tax write-offs, including dos and don’ts, pros and cons, and tax liabilities. We provide insights on the best practices for claiming write-offs and help our clients identify any areas where they may be missing out on potential deductions. By understanding the nuances of tax write-offs and liabilities, our clients can make better-informed financial decisions and maximize their tax savings. We believe that this knowledge is essential for businesses of all sizes, and we are committed to helping our clients succeed by providing them with expert guidance and support.


What do you hope our readers gain from this interview?

In this interview, my hope is to provide readers with valuable insights into financing options and small business growth. I believe that by raising awareness about financial resources and strategies, we can empower more people to make informed decisions about their finances. For small business owners, I hope to offer practical advice and guidance that can help them achieve their growth goals. By sharing my experiences and expertise, I hope to positively impact the financial well-being of our readers and the broader community.


What are you looking forward to most in 2023?

In 2023, I am most looking forward to obtaining my CPA certification, which has been a significant focus for me. I am also excited to buy a new home, which has been a long-term dream and my husband and me.

Additionally, I’m happy to share that our new baby has already arrived, and we’re enjoying this precious time with our new little one. Overall, I’m grateful and thrilled about the opportunities that 2023 has brought so far, and I’m looking forward to continuing to pursue my goals and aspirations with joy and determination.
