Areas of Expertise
Business and Non-Profit Startup
Providing support in all areas of initial startup, from selecting what entity is best for you (Sole Proprietor, Partnership, LLC, Corporation, etc), to choosing your name and getting your business license or non-profit status. Whether you're a one person show, a group of volunteers, or a larger organization with employees from the get-go.
Human Resources and Training
You need additional people, but employees come with a host of employment laws that vary by state. Not to mention worker's compensation insurance, withholding, part time versus full time status requirements, salary versus hourly requirements, contractor versus employee risks and benefits, and a host of other questions that can leave you unsure about whether you're fully compliant with the laws.
Let me make this simple and easy so you can focus on finding the right people (I can help with that too!). I can assist with all your HR needs, including creating human resource policies and selecting benefits, designing and delivering effective training materials, and implementing employee policies (time off, travel expenses, etc).

I can help you get the deductions you deserve and ensure you're informed every step of the way.
