Ronica Brown

Founder and CEO, Ronica Brown Agency

My first attempt at business was at age 9 when I started selling ketchup packets to classmates in school. I quickly learned the harsh lessons about cash flow, profits, and keeping more of what I made. Now, my passion is to teach business owners how to manage their business financial life. After completing my master’s degree in accounting and taxation, I worked 11 years helping high-net-worth individuals and corporations to reduce their taxes. Now, I use these same concepts to help small businesses implement money saving strategies that are designed to reduce their taxes and keep more money in their pocket by using the tax loopholes that the IRS allows them to take.
