WHY ENTREPRENEURS WORK WITH MICHAEL

I'm an entrepreneur, so reducing my taxes is always top of mind. Last year, after my CPA told me to expect a big tax bill (and to just pay it!), I contacted Michael, who pored over my company's information, and identified tax credits and other opportunities that my CPA missed. He saved me close to $1 million, now I can use those savings to grow my business.

ENTREPRENEUR

I wanted to sell my business but didn't know where to start. Michael guided me through the whole process and made it completely painless, from helping me find a buyer to planning a tax-efficient (he saved me millions in taxes!) exit. Without Michael I would still be stuck in the daily grind, but now when my wife wants to go on vacation I can say "Let's go!"

BRANDON
ENTREPRENEUR

My startup was experiencing massive growth, and we didn't have a scalable accounting, financial or legal function to match. Michael assessed our situation, implemented a scalable solution and when we exited four years later, we paid $0 in capital gains taxes because of his advanced planning. I recommend him highly!
