My business has grown organically over the decades without a single dollar of marketing or advertising, but instead through the individual successes of my clients. While creating an exit strategy for myself, the only natural thing to do was to create a mentorship program that would allow me to prepare the next generation of accountants.
I am so very proud and honored to share the businesses that I work with. Not only can I vouch for these businesses, I can vouch for the people that are the backbone of these businesses. Integrity got lost somewhere in the world we live in but it will always be something I look for in the people and businesses I deal with as a consumer or consultant.
Thank you to every business I have tagged. You have no idea how grateful I am for all of you. There was no way I was going to allow my site and platforms to grow without the "trickle down" effect that would promote the businesses that have facilitated my growth and continue to support me on my journey.
Cheers to an abundant 2023!
For those in the Interior Design or Architect space, stay tuned for updates on High Point Market. I would love to meet you all!
"Nothing worth having comes easy and everything great comes with risk or sacrifice. It is not who we are when things are great, but how we navigate the hardships that make us who we are. Doing the right things even when they aren't always in your favor will always reap rewards in the end, even if it's from a different source." Marie Leanio, Marevuitton LLC

Today's business is impacted on client experiences. While anyone can hire marketing expert to design a website or create advertising materials, today's business is driven on experiences and successes of those you currently service or work with.
There is no greater advertisement than client testimonials and social media shares and the best part about that is ITS FREE and can do the hard work for you.
I wanted to use my platform to connect to my current clients, small business owners, something that I have never done in the past. I tried very much to keep my professional and personal life separate but in order to expand and build my brand, I am learning that transparency is valued. People want to work with like minded businesses and they want to know who they're dealing with and rightfully so, especially when selecting an accountant to work with.
I appreciate your continued support as I continue to expand on how we do business. My commitment remains to my current book of business and I look forward continuing to grow with you.
I am extremely excited about my Client Spotlight Series.
This video series was created as a way to showcase the stories and hard work behind the businesses that helped me to grow and build out my brand. I am nothing without my clients. My success story is a culmination of all of their success stories and if putting it all out on video inspires just one business owner to push through the odds and create a success story of their own, it was all worth it in the end.
I just want to thank my clients, family and friends for the wealth of support!
I cannot wait to see all that this next chapter holds for us all.
