Early Days, Engineered Tax Services
The initial challenge was starting an industry that didn’t exist in the United States. Providing expertise in tax credit and incentives to accounting firms to help their clients preserve wealth and take advantage of the tax laws was not a business that existed in the United States. I had to travel to accounting firms across the country and teach them about these incentives and convince them that I could be a great resource to their clients
