Marguerite is no stranger to launching a small business. At the age of 24, she opened her first business associated with the travel industry specializing in chartering private aircraft for executives of local businesses, securing air, hotel and meeting space for conventions and making reservations to exotic destinations. Her clients included small start-ups to Fortune 500 firms. After owning her travel company for 10 years, Marguerite sold her successful company.

Shortly after selling her business, Marguerite was offered a consulting position with a global company and traveled one week every month to Eastern and Western Europe to help manage a $50M+ travel budget. Marguerite was in London on business when the event of 911 occurred. After spending one week assisting travelers from all over the world get to their “home base”, Marguerite arrived back home to be greeted by her family. This event changed so many facets of her consulting position and her personal goals. Shortly after 911, Marguerite accepted a full-time teaching position at the college level so she could be at home base with her young child. After completing two positions at the college level, working as a sales engineer for a manufacturing company and working for a CPA where she processed more than 2500 tax returns, it was time for Marguerite to embark on another venture.

At the age of 50, Marguerite launched Ashby Tax & Consulting. Her firm is a full service tax preparation and consulting firm for individuals and small businesses. With over 25+ years of business experience, she offers added expertise and provides a full spectrum of knowledge from start-up to buy-sell of a small businesses.

If you really want to know how to start a small business, Marguerite has a clear understanding of the necessary steps to take. One important criteria required and often overlooked is the level of discipline it takes to work for yourself. If you are serious about working for yourself, Marguerite has much knowledge to offer.

Marguerite earned her B.S. and M.B.A. from Rochester Institute of Technology. She also earned her National Association of Purchasing Agent Credential and Enrolled Agent Certificate.
