Accredited in Business Valuation


I truly believe that we are very lucky to live in the United States, it is the very best nation in the world and we all have the ability to make ourselves who ever we want.  I think that we all have an obligation to our families to be financially fit and be able to take care of ourselves without being a burden on society or relying on the generosity of others.  90% of success in life is just showing up, this goes for just about everything.  During my twenties I was working at a big food warehouse in Spokane and decided that if I ever wanted more out of life that I was going to have to make some sacrifice and put a little effort into making a change.  I graduated from EWU with three degrees and sat for the CPA exam before finishing my last quarter in school.  The CPA exam is one of the toughest professional exams that there is.  When other CPA candidates ask me about passing the exam I tell them if they study for 100 hours per section that they will pass.

I have been very fortunate in my career to be a part of a firm that shares the same passion for helping people reach their goals.  We have dedicated ourselves to being the very best financial advisors for business owners and using the five strategies that help business owners reach the 2% club and a little guidance I believe that for anyone willing to “show up” in life, success is a foregone conclusion.
