Welcome to Beancounter Magic

January 29, 2008

Hello, I’m Donna Bordeaux and I am a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and a PFS (Personal Financial Specialist).  My husband, Chad, and I are the owners of Calculated Moves CPA, PA in Lake Wylie, SC.  We are just over the border from Charlotte, NC.

Since staring our firm in 1996, I have been passionate about helping small business maximize their efforts and have a great quality of life.  After all, the reason most people say they started their own businesses is to allow them to control their own schedule and spend more time with their families.  But then again, I have heard many business owners say they want to sell their business so they can have more time to spend with their families.  There is a happy medium somewhere along the way.

I also enjoy taxes — yes that’s right “enjoy” taxes.  I may not always agree (or almost never agree) with tax laws, but my job is not really to create the tax laws, but instead help individuals and businesses minimize their consequences.  Many of my clients have heard me say that I hope to pay a lot of taxes — that must mean I am making a lot of money!  My goal is to help my clients pay the lowest amount of taxes for the income they have been able to achieve.

You can learn a lot more about me and our practice at our website, www.calculatedmoves.com.  We also have a couple more that may interest you — our full service payroll firm, www.gusto.com.  Come visit!

In this blog, I hope to keep my clients as well as “listeners” informed about strategies for taxes and starting and running small businesses.  There are lots of tricks along the way that I hope to convey to all of you.  I ask that you keep me posted too with your comments or concerns along the way!

Thanks for listening,

Donna Bordeaux, CPA with <a href=”https://calculatedmoves.com”>Calculated Moves</a>

<i>Creativity and CPAs don’t generally go together.  Most people think of CPAs as nerdy accountants who can’t talk with people.  Well, it’s time to break that stereotype.  Lively, friendly, and knowledgeable can be a part of your relationship with your CPA as demonstrated by Donna and Chad Bordeaux.  They have over 50 years of combined experience as entrepreneurial CPAs.  They’ve owned businesses and helped business owners exceed their wildest dreams.   They have been able to help businesses earn many times more profit than the average business in the same industry and are passionate about helping industries that help families build great memories.</i>
