Episode #130 – Building a Tax Empire with Rachel Michaelov

Does filing your taxes as an entrepreneur scare you every quarter? Today on the show, I have Founder and CEO of Empire Tax Professionals, Rachel Michaelov. Her goal is to take a proactive approach to tax planning and finding all possible deductions and credits.

Rachel shares her story on how she left her corporate job to start her own business. About 13 years ago, Rachel was hired by one of the biggest companies in NYC who represented big celebrities. At the time, she was told she would work a 9-5 job, but she quickly realized that there was no work/life balance; it was too hard to juggle a family life and the corporate job. She admits that leaving corporate was the best decision.

Now, Rachel gives her employees the flexibility to have a work/life balance with her current venture. With her family life, Rachel shares that business is flourishing. She now serves over 600 small business owners and helps advise them on how to get their maximum deductions when it comes to taxes.

Rachel’s Business Mission

Teaching business owners about having someone help them maintain accurate records, and being sure they are spending the money they should for business and not overpaying for anything unnecessarily.
