Strategy. Tactics. Bottom Line.

When Bert Doerhoff graduated years ago he came out with no money and all the related struggles. After working for an international CPA firm he left to start his own CPA practice back in 1978. With no staff and no clients he started a firm simply with a passion to help small business owners succeed. Along the way he saw business owners struggle to convert their business ideas to an ever increasing cash flow. He set out on a path to research and develop certain key services that could be packaged separately in a unique way to fit the needs of every small business owner.
