I am an experienced Certified Public Accountant and small business advisor (25 years). I have a background working for both a large national firm and a small sole proprietorship as well as experience in the securities and insurance industry.
Getting a business started from initial formation, registering with the IRS and other agencies and setting up payroll and other functions.
I have over 25 years experience in various businesses as a CPA and in other capacities. A young business can benefit from someone who knows how things can and should look at different stages of a business's existence. A strong board of outsiders can give you a different and useful view on your company's issues.
Business entails risks - you need to know what you should do to protect yourself and your business so that you can thrive without having to worry about an unexpected "curveball" knocking things off track.
