C&D Number Crunchers: Local Help for More Than Tax Time
Shelton entrepreneur shares her small business story.
Owner: Carol E. Navarro
Address: 476 Howe Ave., Suite 3
Why choose that location? Why start a business in this town?
I chose this location 7 years ago because it's a great location for an accounting business. There is easy access on and off the highway for my clients. Shelton has ample parking facilities. It is also a city that is centrally located. I grew up here.
What do you do?
I offer a full range of accounting services for large and small businesses and individuals. I also specialize in tax preparation. I offer both hands on services and oversight of a business's current staff. I also offer payroll services.
What are you most proud of about your business?
In just a few years, I have more than tripled my clients without any advertising, just word of mouth. I can help the "small" business or person who needs a CPA service at a price they can afford.
What's something people would find surprising about your business or profession?
Professional services can be offered at a price they can afford. I'm always available to answer their questions or attend to their business needs.
How are you involved in the community?
I am a very active board member at both the Boys and Girls Club and the Exchange Club of Shelton. I feel it is very important to use my knowledge to help these local non profits who do so much in our community.
