Clients appreciate his honest and direct approach as well as his ability to connect with their overall goals with compassion and authenticity.
You might notice that I am not Canadian-born. I have seen a lot of poverty and way too much sadness and suffering in my early years. I grew up wanting to be ‘smart and rich’ and having my own family that was not left ‘wanting’ for anything. And I’ve always been a quick thinker, smart on my feet and eager to learn. I have wanted to run my own firm since the age of 13. I love taxes. Some people think that is odd. Not me. We are entering my most favourite part of the year, Tax Time, and I’m not kidding. Many people think of taxes as a burden and have a lot of angst around tax time. The tax deadline is looming, they fear it, their eyes roll…But not me. And not my clients. And I take great pride in that. I help my clients Pay Less Tax, legally (of course). My clients feel no angst. They feel empowered. I have helped them use their businesses to define and upscale their lifestyle. My clients have more fun. Their mindset has changed. They are enjoying themselves AND keeping more of their hard-earned money in their pockets. And this is the common person, not just those born into wealth. “It’s not the money you earn, it’s the money you save.” I take great pride in that.Changing lives … one tax season at a time.
