"One of the major concerns of any new business is where clients will come from. I have been very impressed with the effectiveness of the shop in drawing in business and, combined with my own networking and a high rate of referrals from happy clients, my practice has grown very well. I won’t be resting on my laurels though, and I am looking forward to doing seven presentations at local events in 2018 to continue to get the TaxAssist Accountants name more well-known locally."
