q & a
What characteristics do your favorite clients share?
Clients appreciate how quickly I get back them after they leave me a message to contact them. I am perceived as being very responsive to my client needs.
Why should a client hire you?
My clients are my number #1 priority - if they're not satisfied, neither am I. I am even able on nights and weekends throughout the year to address their needs.
Describe a time where you went beyond expectations when working with a client.
I have a particular client who owed significant amounts to the Federal and State agencies. The client was unable to arrange installment agreements with these agencies, and I acted on his behalf and was able to establish these agreements to my client's satisfaction.
What single project or task would you consider your most significant accomplishment in your career to date?
Several years ago, I was able to uncover a situation where a client's employee was embezzling funds. Being able to identify that situation helped the client establish improved controls in her business and prevent future losses.
