Michael has lived most of his life in the world of entrepreneurship and small business. Starting as young boy then as a young adult, working weekends, summers and late nights in his father's small business, Michael witnessed firsthand the risks, struggles and challenges of starting, owning and operating a small business. He eventually became a partner with his father and was the key person who was instrumental in growing the business from its meager beginnings to a multi-million dollar operation. He personally navigated the company through the process of its eventual sale to a major competitor.
Knowing that a small to midsized business becomes the largest asset of a business owner’s net worth this often means the owner’s financial well-being and retirement is extremely dependent on the successful transfer or sale of their business. Michael Kimmey has assisted dozens of business owners with the start-up, purchase or sale of their business. He has purchased, developed and sold a number of businesses himself.
During the ownership of the family business, Michael experienced the demoralizing impact of taxation on the profits and personal finances as a business owner and the importance of a trusted financial advisor. While working with his clients, Michael makes a priority of providing strategic tax advice in order save his clients as much as he can in taxes.
