Centerco Featured Community Member: David Robson

David Rosen premeir services small businessesCenterco community member David Robson started his business, Premier Services, 21 years ago and ran it as a part-time business while working a full-time job. He reached the point where he wanted to make the switch to running it full time. He participates in the IRS’s Annual Filing Season Program, a voluntary program that holds certain preparers to a higher level requiring additional educational requirements and an annual test. He is also a Certified Guerrilla Marketing Trainer and Coach. We got the chance to ask the experienced business owner a few questions, take a look at what he said.

What services are offered at Premier Services?

I offer tax prep and planning.  Most tax preparers record history, but I try to focus on helping my clients write history through proactive planning.  I am planning  to start offering college finance planning later this year to help clients plan their college savings needs because this is an area that people often find confusing.  I also offer some business consulting/coaching services.  My focus is helping individuals and small businesses.

Why did you become an entrepreneur?

I wanted to make a difference.  I am passionate about sharing my skills with others to help enrich their lives.

What is your biggest challenge as an entrepreneur?

Making sure I spend enough time working “on” my business rather than just “in” my business.  If there is one lesson I’ve learned it is that I need to be at least one step ahead.

What advice would you give to those wanting to start small businesses?

Have a solid plan and don’t be afraid to make a pivot if things aren’t going as expected.  It is a lot easier to work with a well thought out plan than it is to make it up as you go along.

Why did you choose Centerco Office Suites for  your business?

I knew when I took my business from part-time operation to full time I wanted to have a more professional atmosphere than running the business from my home.  I was impressed with the atmosphere when I came in for my visit, but the amenities are an added bonus.  It was a no-brainer and I get compliments from clients frequently.
