He began working in the tax industry in 1990 in his father’s two room $50,000 per year tax preparation office. In just a few short years, Chauncey took this small office with a few part-time employees and built a Multi-Million dollar company, with 27,000 clients, over 440 employees, and 15 market areas and across three states (in ten years).
Chauncey sold his ownership stake in the family business in 2007 to concentrate full-time on coaching and consulting business owners and entrepreneurs to greater levels of success.
Chauncey has worked directly with over 3,700 tax business owner clients, helping create Million Dollar breakthroughs along the way. Over the past several years, he has seen such an amazing opportunity in the tax industry that he is now getting back into owning tax businesses.
Listen in on what he sees, why he is getting back into the tax business as an owner, and how you can also capitalize on it by using salesmanship and unconventional marketing.
