5 Key Professionals You Need on Your Team

You’re building your business, and it’s time to assemble your dream team. Here are five few key players you need on your team and why.

1. CFP

We are the OGs of personal finance. We are well versed in taxes, insurance, estate planning, employee benefits and they have the 4 E’s: Experience, Education, Exam, Ethics

2. CPA

They’re the OGs of taxes. They keep Uncle Sam and your tax returns happy. No, I’m serious. There is so much going on with tax laws right now.

3. Bookkeeper

Numbers don’t lie… and neither do bookkeepers. They give you the real on your business finances so you know how to pivot and grow your empire.

4. Business Attorney

They know the law. They can help you with your business structure, get the right documents in place and most importantly, they help you not break the law or get sued.

5. Friend

There are some up days and down days, and you are going to need a friend that will remain your cheerleader at all times.
