Meet Chandra Adusei of Veteran Wealth Partners in Carlsbad

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chandra Adusei.

Chandra, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started Veteran Wealth Partners to help the community of veteran small business owners and entrepreneurs. As a Navy Veteran, I saw an opportunity to serve this community while I was in corporate America and I wanted to help them grow their business so that they can build wealth and leave a legacy for the communities that they serve. It’s no secret that large corporations like Amazon and Netflix have paid $0 dollars in federal taxes last year. Meanwhile, small business owners pay an average of 19.8%. So we have made it our mission to help small business owners and entrepreneurs minimize their taxable income as much as possible through various risk management and wealth protection strategies.

Since then, we have expanded to support business owners and entrepreneurs outside of the veteran community. Today, we are proud to continue to make a positive impact on all of those that we serve.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Ha! To me, a smooth road is linear. The road to small business ownership and entrepreneurism is anything but a smooth, straight road…but it is so rewarding! Some of the challenges we had, in the beginning, were defining our market. With roughly 18.2 Million Veterans in the US, we wanted to serve them all and that’s not realistic for a small business just starting out. We had to really hone in on what sets us apart from our competitors and that was our ability to support small business finances strategically.

Veteran Wealth Partners – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Our business takes corporate financial strategies and scales them to support our small business owners and entrepreneurs. What sets us apart from others is that we focus on the business finances by creating solutions to turn expenses into assets, significantly increase interest rates of cash reserves/required reserves for current and future growth, and ensure that business’ are protected.

We typically focus on two areas – those that are interested in turning their significantly high expenses into an asset and those that are looking to increase their retirement savings by at least 400%.

We are most proud of:
1. Helping small businesses with a healthy revenue save upwards of $2.3M in tax relief while turning their expenses into an additional profitable center within their business.

2. Helping our small business owners that have started planning for retirement after 50+ create solutions that can help them maximize their retirement savings by 400% so that they can live a lifestyle when and how they want in the future.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
My personal definition of success is directly linked to my ability to be present. Being present is not being worried about the future because there is a plan already in place to ensure the probability of success is achievable.

Success is the ability to be present in all aspects of my life while ensuring my husband’s and my children’s needs are met.
