When Joel Sandoval decided he wanted to make a career switch from the traditional nine to five routine, he wasn’t afraid of the challenges ahead. With his background as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Sandoval was able to equip himself with the knowledge he needed in order to start his journey into entrepreneurship. In just nine months time, Sandoval launched his business, Sandoval Tax CPAs, and began bringing in seven figures in annual revenue. With remarkable dedication and ambition, Sandoval has been able to break away from the traditional mold and build a career path entirely his own, something he is helping others achieve too.
Sandoval believes in the power of reading and mentorship and knows that with the right knowledge and mindset, anyone can become successful in business. Sandoval not only read and learned independently as much as he could about business management before starting his business, but he also sought out mentors who could guide him. This provided Sandoval with invaluable advice on how to run a successful business from the beginning. With a combination of self-education and mentorship, Sandoval was able to make wise decisions for his business from the very beginning.
Sandoval also realized that if he wanted to reach more people with his services, he needed to invest in bilingual services since there is a large Hispanic population in Bakersfield where he lives. To do this, he invested in a Spanish-speaking CPA firm based out of Bakersfield which allowed him to expand his customer base significantly. This investment paid off well as it led to increased revenue for Sandoval’s firm, while also providing valuable services for those who may not have been able to get them otherwise due to language barriers.
Recently, Sandoval has also started up his own podcast called, “Believe in the Entrepreneur,” which shares financial tips with listeners while giving them an inside look at the world of accounting and taxes. Through this podcast, Sandoval has been able to reach even more people with educational content that helps them manage their finances better, while also promoting his business services. Sandoval has been able to resonate with many other entrepreneurs because they can relate to his dedication to be successful no matter what.
In just nine months time, Joel Sandoval was able to completely transform his career and life by learning about business management through reading and mentorship. Thanks to smart investments, such as setting up bilingual services for his practice, Sandoval’s firm has already helped clients save over $37 million-dollars in taxes. Today, Sandoval is continuing to remain passionate about empowering people to take control of their own destiny by forging a path towards financial independence.
