Experience is the essence of competence. Nearly 5 decades of hands on, battleground experience at all levels & in every nook & cranny of the market place. I started with the biggest & best cpa firm in the world. From there to the largest consulting firm and two Fortune 500 C suites before attempting to LBO my employer and running for Congress. When the dust cleared I founded this practice serving privately owned businesses. The internet was becoming a big deal & we bounced off that to grow our practice into a national practice with clients in 46 states.
Today we are disrupting the tax industry with innovative use of systems.

Recognized & honored by the Wall Street Journal, the United States Congress & author Harvey MacKay.

“There exists a form of power and intelligence that represents the high point of human potential. This is the source of the greatest achievements and discoveries in history. This is mastery. Most of us experience flashes. Some of us develop it into a life long ability.”
― Robert Greene, Mastery
“The problem we face is that this form of power and intelligence is either ignored as a subject of study or is surrounded by all kinds of myths and misconceptions, all of which only add to the mystery. We imagine that creativity and brilliance just appear out of nowhere, the fruit of natural talent, or perhaps of a good mood, or an alignment of the stars. It would be an immense help to clear up the mystery—to name this feeling of power, to examine its roots, to define the kind of intelligence that leads to it, and to understand how it can be manufactured and maintained. Let us call this sensation mastery—the feeling that we have a greater command of reality, other people, and ourselves.”
― Robert Greene, Mastery.
