“Hola, yo soy Silvia Ramos la dueña de Silvias Professional Tax Services. I have been a business owner for numerous years now as well as a real estate broker. In addition to being a successful business woman, I am also the mom of five bright little humans. When out of the office, I love traveling, spending time with my family, and giving back to my community! My dream as a young woman was to one day have a business that would be able to serve my community in numerous ways. That dream has turned into my reality, with the help of my team. We do it all here; taxes, business administration, bookkeeping, payroll, public notary, passport pictures, real estate, and more! I feel so blessed for the team that I have and look forward to seeing how we will all continue to grow. A piece of advice I have for others who want to start their own business is to be fearless and go for it, because youll never know until you try. If your dreams don’t scare you it’s because they are not big enough. Noone believed in me, but I believe in YOU and I am here to help you!”
Her staff motivates her, she chooses to continue to grow with their knowledge and ideas for the company. She loves seeing people succeed. Silvia started this company with the inspiration of her children to see it grow and be a part of their life and a part of this family oriented business. ”Biggest memory when I barely decided to open up, was when I shared my crazy idea to my mom about opening up a tax firm. She thought it was a crazy idea but she said `if you believe in you I believe in you.`”
