Weston Hill

Weston Hill

Mentor

I from Deerfield Bch, FL. I wasn’t handed a silver spoon while growing up and I had to work extremely hard for everything I got. Both of my parents had jobs, but we lived paycheck to paycheck like most families. There were times when we struggled and life hit hard. We got what we needed, but had to work for what we wanted. Where I’m from you either go to college, play sports, sell drugs, or find a job. Entrepreneurship was not taught in my community. I decided I wanted to play football and after high school I earned a full scholarship to Hampton University to play football. I had my son when I was 19 years olds and I promised myself he would never have to struggle. After graduating from college #HamptonUniversity and working several years in corporate America, I decided to take a chance on entrepreneurship and opened my own tax office.

In 2015, my life changed forever. My mom passed away from Cancer one week after she retired. It was devastating. She worked over 35 years on the school board and didn’t get to enjoy her retirement. At that moment I decided I didn’t want to work in Corporate America for so long and not be guaranteed to enjoy life after I retired.

I opened my tax office 10 years ago and have not looked back. It is what has allowed me to walk away from corporate America. Owning my own tax business allows me to spend more time with family during the year and build a legacy for my children. In these unprecedented times, Starting a virtual tax business is a great opportunity for you to do the same. In a matter of months you can start your journey to building wealth and a legacy for your children like I am.

We are looking forward to helping you crush it with your Tax Business in 2022!
