Joel Sandoval, CPA is a successful entrepreneur and tax mastermind, having helped business owners save $37 million in taxes. The story of his start in the tax industry goes back to the peak of the real estate market crash in 2007. He was new to the job force with one foot in the real estate industry. However, with so many people losing their homes, he was afraid he had hit a brick wall in real estate. Fortunately, the CPA at the escrow company he was employed with, shared her experience as an accountant during such a volatile time. This ignited a spark in Joel, he began talking with other CPAs which only further increased his interest in the accounting industry. Four years later, Joel officially graduated from California State University, Bakersfield with a business degree and a concentration in accounting. Starting his tax and accounting firm was step one to the massive success he has achieved today. Like many small business owners, Joel was juggling all aspects of the business alone. He was cold calling, meeting with clients, preparing and filing tax returns. Today, he owns Sandoval Tax CPAs and serves as the leader for his growing team. He has a passion for helping business owners maximize their profits by reducing their taxes. His firm has clients all over the United States which he meets with virtually on a regular basis to ensure he is doing everything he can by being proactive.

“Start. Get up every day and start something and focus on what you need to do that day – it will aggregate. Don’t get too involved about your five or 10 year plan because nobody can predict five years from now anymore. Listen to the marketplace, listen to what your customers are telling you. A lot of people don’t do that and they don’t adjust to that. And don’t complain about the fact that your business is hard because if it were easy then everybody would be doing it. Be happy that it is hard, be excited that it is really hard and be really good at it”…[Listen for More]
