Why We Do It

We believe in helping entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes build wealth, and we measure our success in the trust we earn from our clients every day.

Our core set of accounting and financial consulting services create a comprehensive support system for companies in real estate, entertainment, hospitality, fitness, technology/new media and a variety of other industries.

For clients with additional needs, we also maintain a specialized affiliate network of expert professional and creative service providers. Our goal is to keep your business organized, efficient and well-connected and supported by the best and brightest professionals available.

Our services start with accounting, which is the language all businesses must speak fluently to succeed, but we go much further, to manage your current business needs while also identifying – and solving – potential problems early, before they become a headache.

OUR SERVICES

Our mission is to provide complete professional services solutions to entrepreneurs and growing businesses in a variety of industries, including real estate, entertainment and hospitality. We also work extensively with successful creative artists and entrepreneurs and professionals in the health & wellness fields.

Full Charge Bookkeeping | Receivables/Payables Processing | Cash Management (Banking) | Payroll Administration | Financial Reporting

We can’t say it enough: Without strong accounting and record keeping, no business can make sound financial decisions. Our powerful, proprietary accounting platform produces financial reports that portray the state of your business clearly, accurately and in a convenient, easy-to-understand format. Because knowing your numbers is knowing your business.

For clients who desire it, we also provide an online business banking platform that eliminates the hassle and delays associated with sending and receiving large volumes of payments on a regular basis. And we offer this service at a rate significantly lower than those at commercial banks.

Business & Personal Financial Planning (Retirement/Employee Benefits) | Insurance & Estate Planning | Risk Management

Growing and preserving wealth is a complex effort that requires the coordinated services of accountants, financial advisors, insurance experts and estate planning specialists, among other professionals. We work closely with a trusted network of such experts to offer you comprehensive financial planning guidance. When you hire us, you hire a distinguished, diverse team of wealth advisors whose singular goal is mapping and creating your path to sustainable financial well-being.
