Hidden Gems: Meet Marquita Miller Joshua of Five Star Tax & Business Solutions

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marquita Miller Joshua – she shares her story with us below:

Marquita Miller-Joshua put her feet to faith and jumped headfirst into the world of entrepreneurship. After working for Fortune 500 companies as an accountant for years, Marquita knew her time to thrive had arrived. The decision proved to be golden: she resigned from the corporate ladder and branched off into the world of small business ownership. During those first years, Marquita relied on her faith to help her survive the trials and tribulations of beginning a small business. She shaped herself into more than just an entrepreneur—she became a Faithpreneur, a person who follows the path to entrepreneurship by first following the path to God.

Today, Marquita is President of Five Star Tax and Business Solutions from her headquarters in Kansas City, MO. Her full-service accounting & business consultation firm focuses on a diverse menu of business solutions which include tax planning and preparation; accounting; payroll; business startup planning; and revenue generation. From the business’ inception as a part-time hobby in 2009 to its current position as a local marketplace leader, Marquita has sought to focus her services on small- and medium-sized businesses. She fosters entrepreneurship in others and her company places particular emphasis on services for startup businesses.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road has certainly not been easy. However, the bumpy road led to results driven destinations. I had to learn how to build a brand on a shoestring budget. I had to find ways to increase revenue and develop processes to reduce expenses. One of the greatest challenges was convincing potential clients to make the decision to invest into their dreams.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Five Star Tax and Business Solutions offers a full spectrum of tax, business startup, consulting, payroll, and accounting services for a wide range of individuals, small businesses, corporations, and other organizations. We feel it is better for our clients to get all of their services at a single firm from people who understand the whole picture. We are committed to taking our clients and their businesses to the next level. We are a locally-owned private accounting firm, specializing in providing personal attention to all of our clients while maintaining a commitment to both their privacy and their success!

Who else deserves credit in your story?
Our organization would not be a success without the employees of Five Star Tax & Business Solutions. The employees are the dream team that support the vision, clients and each other. Also, I have been mentored by some of the best. I owe lots of credit to my amazing mentors and church leadership. Last, but certainly not least, my husband, children, family and friends have pushed me forward.
