Our Sponsors

We are grateful to our sponsors. They make WordCamp Rochester possible and accessible.

Cobb's Hill

Cazbah

We help small businesses take FULL advantage of the Internet as their Primary Marketing Medium. Marketing provides the MEANS to the Sales END! If your Internet Marketing activities are not generating Sales results, then you are wasting your money and time!

One of the reasons that our customers stay with us year-after-year, besides being wildly successful on the Web, is because we answer the phone when they call. We hear this all the time! That seems like a little thing but, according to our customers, it’s a pretty big deal. Apparently, other Internet service providers aren’t in the habit of answering their telephones these days. Go figure… You can’t have a relationship with someone’s voicemail. So, we pick up the phone and talk with our customers. We treat people how we like to be treated, with RESPECT and DIGNITY!

Flint and Associates

Without a doubt, tax planning and preparation are the services that take of most of our time at Flint & Associates. We spend a great deal of focus and effort to recording, reviewing and completing annual and quarterly forms. We’re tax professionals who understand your business is about more than what happens between 7 am and 7pm. Its about your life.

But in our opinion, its more than just paperwork. All of that activity is created by our understanding of the you, the client. YOUR intentions, YOUR goals and YOUR activity are all for a purpose. Whether your goal is to grow your business by 25% this year, ensuring your employees are taken care of or a 5-year-succession-plan, Flint & Associates start by understanding YOU.

For many small business owners, you may not even know where to begin. Your previous tax professional was someone in the “big-box-tax-game”. You visited them once every year with a box of receipts, and it was painful. (For many of the people working in those offices, it was their second job.) Or a similar scenario with a full-time CPA. But he or she never really asked what your plans are or what you wanted to accomplish. Flint & Associates understands that many big businesses start small. The majority of our work is in multi-state, multi-location. We understand business.
