Continue reading to find out how Tifani was able to get through the setbacks of starting her business, what differentiates her from her competition, and how she pivoted to create a WIN out of 2020.
Tell us a little bit about your business and what you do?
TNH Financial Services, LLC is a financial based firm that has a passion working with individuals and small businesses to achieve their business and financial goals. We also consult and work with newly startups.
How or why did you decide to start your own business?
I started TNH Financial Services, LLC from humble beginnings. The income coming in changed and I needed to figure something out. I was currently working a full-time job but needed some additional income. One day while at work, I realized the money I was helping the company I worked for make, I could do the same for myself. Surely my skills and experience at the time could allow me to do that. After much thought and prayer, TNH Financial Services, LLC was birthed.
Why did you choose this business or industry?
I was currently working in the world of Accounting. It’s always been something I have enjoyed. It was something I felt compelled to share with others. I felt there were other individuals, small businesses, and dreamers that needed guidance, knowledge, business tips, strategies, and help such as I did when I started my business.
Did you have any major setbacks or obstacles getting started?
Yes, in the beginning, I didn’t have any money to start a business. I didn’t know how to start a business. But, I knew I had to start where I could. The start was slow and often times discouraging. Also, I quickly learned what it took to run a business. It wasn’t just the accounting work I was used to doing on my full-time job. There was so much more to learn and several hats to wear.
What differentiates your business from your competition?
Three words: Professional, Experience, and Integrity. This is what TNH Financial Services, LLC is built on. Our clients are like family to me. Some I have been knowing a long time and have watched them grow personally and professionally. I love it!
What are you most proud of about your business?
I am most proud of this journey God has allowed for me. I have been able to work with some amazing people and retain clients not just customers. Also being able to see the growth from 2006 to today has been a true blessing. I started in Missouri. But since, have worked with clients in California, Memphis, Texas, Indiana, Illinois. I’m inspired to keep going!
How has your industry changed in the last few months how do you see it changing in the future (or will it)?
To me, the industry itself hasn’t changed much. This industry knows how to prepare and stay ready. For example, tax laws are subject to change year to year. So, we must stay credentialed and up to date to inform our clients. However, what has changed for TNH Financial Services, LLC is the way we do business. TNH Financial Services, LLC is now predominantly virtual. We are completely setup to serve our clients remotely and because of that, this has allowed us to expand our service based where we can serve clients no matter where they are. We find a WIN in that!
What is your favorite small business?
My favorite small business is any business that is thriving and successful.
