“In this world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.”
– Ben Franklin
Almost every important decision you make in your life has a financial consequence. Whether you’re getting married, divorced, having children, planning for their education, buying or selling a house, starting a business, running a business, selling a business, or retiring, the list is endless.
Sometimes the emotional impact of these major events can overpower the financial implications. You need a partner who understands your situation and needs. Someone who can work with you to make a holistic decision that includes financial consequences along with all of the other factors that shape a particular decision. Our goal with each and every one of our clients is to be that partner.
It was with this thought in mind that Jackie Watson founded our CPA firm in 1997, drawing on her years of experience as a CFO for a publicly traded company. It was her desire to be that partner for small businesses. Adam joined her in 2001. Their passion to see businesses succeed; to “play the game” of keeping taxes as low as possible with ever changing rules and regulations; and to help individuals, businesses, and non-profits make those important decisions continue to drive the firm today.
While they both enjoy the accounting and bookkeeping involved, nothing can beat seeing a client reach a long term goal or positive outcome. And nothing makes them prouder than working with an entrepreneur from a solo start-up into a flourishing and successful company, and even helping the company transition from one generation to the next.
Although we are located in Tallahassee, Florida, we gladly work with clients around the world.
