"For me, I was scared at first because I thought I was going to be judged. I quickly realized that the connection we had, made me at ease and I felt elevated. They gave me pointers about my website which allowed me to open up to see my customers' perspectives... Overall this was a great experience for me, and I appreciate you all for making this available."

Expert Tip: "To be successful in taxes, record keeping is so important. Keeping your records regularly is ideal. If you don't take time to take care of your body, your body will take time for you. It would be a lot better to be well/mentally well to prepare taxes."
