What do you love about your job?
I really enjoy doing taxes. I have been doing taxes for consumers since 1984. My mom said since I love math and numbers I should open up a tax business. Thanks to my mom for pushing me to pursue my dream. I went from 10 customers to over 200 customers. I enjoy meeting all different clientele on a yearly basis.
What or who inspired you to start your own business?
My mom inspired me to do taxes. I did them on the side for free by hand from 1984 - 1994. Then I charged a very low price. When I got my first computer in 1996, I said wow this is was so much easier to do Kansas taxes by PC rather than by hand. I figured customers will always have to do taxes on a yearly basis. This was a sure side job on top of my normal job. I want to thank my mom for encouraging me to do taxes. Every year I try to find a client that wants to learn how to do the taxes but no one falls through. When I retire from my personal job I will do taxes all year round.
