Imagine walking into a business not knowing that your future aspirations will be fulfilled there. That is exactly what happened to CPA Ebe Osaigbovo when he walked into Suite Spotte.
Always an aspiring entrepreneur, Ebe started SWM Planning (Smart with Money), offering financial-related services, including income tax filing, credit building, and financial planning. Through SWM Planning, Ebe helps his clients establish savings goals and plans by offering savvy tips and advice on budgeting, and techniques for making saving a priority.
Understanding that achieving your dream often requires extraordinary effort, he maintains his full-time job at the moment, while continuing to build his business. In the next year, Ebe plans to serve 100 financial clients and 250 tax clients.
His marketing strategy is focused on “word of mouth” and referrals. When it comes to his business, Ebe puts his all into it. He understands that a reputation for not only understanding the ins and outs of finances, but being dependable and trustworthy are critical to his success.
I asked Ebe what advice he has for someone thinking about starting a business. He says, “Have a plan, do a lot of research, and treat your clients like gold! If you set a clear goal and stick to it, you can achieve anything.”
No doubt, Ebe is on his way to great success. He says that Suite Spotte is one of the big reasons he can stay focused on his goal. Also meeting with his clients at Suite Spotte gives them the right professional impression about his business, and shows just how important they are to him. For Ebe, his Suite Spotte membership is a wise investment.
I was inspired by Ebe’s drive and professionalism. It was also interesting to learn how Suite Spotte helps him to succeed. Learn more about Ebe and SWM Planning and check out Suite Spotte to get and stay motivated. Book a tour online at SuiteSpotte.com
