One of the most rewarding parts of joining the ATAX franchise systems is working alongside motivated individuals with inspiring journeys to business ownership.
Megan Gardner, who owns ATAX of Albany, New York, is just this sort of franchisee. Following her dreams of business ownership coupled with her passion for enriching her community, Megan’s dedication to providing her home town a reliable, affordable tax preparation business has set the stage for a successful future with ATAX.
After observing the state of the tax industry and seeing how Rafael was taking it to the next level with the ATAX concept, Megan and her husband knew that ATAX was a good fit. She immediately identified with ATAX’s commitment to the community – as a former volunteer at her children’s school and five years on the Leadership for International Friendship Team through her church, which helps refugees resettle in the U.S., Megan understands the impact that community-minded individuals can bring to a city.
“ATAX is an exciting business – the bookkeeping services are changing the way small businesses operate. The tax business is always changing, so you have to remain flexible. Embrace change. That’s the biggest lesson I’ve learned with ATAX,” said Megan. “I love being surrounded by trusted, hard-working people at the home office, and the support, training and giveback component of the business have made this a dream come true for my family and me.”
Now, almost two years in, Megan and her office are in growth mode – continuing to expand her existing office’s client base and keeping the community top of mind. The future is bright for Megan and her team with ATAX.
