B10 loves to partner with client-focused firms that share the same values. When I say client-focused, I mean that the priority of the firm is in truly improving the financial situation of its clients. A lot of firms talk about being focused on the priorities of the client, but their actions show they are focused on the priorities of the government. We respect, believe in, and uphold the law, but never lose sight of the fact that the government is supposed to work for the people.

The uniting mission of the B10 team is the desire to further the cause of those that build, create, and innovate. The B10 team has no problem with the paying of taxes, only with the needless overpaying of taxes when those dollars are most efficiently used in the hands of the world’s best and brightest creators.
