Financial Advisor & Cost Segregation Consultant
Cash-flow impacts every function in today's business. In our current environment, it is critical for businesses to find ways to increase their capital resources to stay in business. Cost Segregation is one way to derive immediate cash-flow from a business property. My goal is to make more business owners aware of the powerful benefits they can gain through Cost Segregation, then help them down that path because the results are always far greater than they realized.
