We had the good fortune of connecting with Angelina Espinosa and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Angelina, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I wanted to share my unique approach in the business world. I believe that we can be impactful in others lives and create wealth simultaneously. I believe our business principles should be centered around the faith principle.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
With 20 years experience gained from working for the California state tax agency and as the owner of Alpha Business Services, I began offering various tax and financial services that provides emphasis in exceptional customer service and education. We cater to individuals, families, and small businesses by providing necessary services that brings a level of comfort and trust. We’ve helped people save time and money while their focus is shifted to family and increasing income. Currently, our services involves the following: tax return preparation, tax compliance, bookkeeping, business formation, and notarial services. As we work with clients, we have identified a need that can bring stability and sense of order to the life of an entrepreneur and small business. We are incorporating a product offering to help people set-up financial and organizational systems within the business to effectively and efficiently manage business and financial records, establish necessary workflows and processes, as well as, maintain compliance with governmental entities. We are excited to help others achieve their goals and look forward to the sweet smell of SUCCESS!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
1st day – I will take my friend to one of my favorite, local restaurant for dinner. The first day will be light due to my friend’s travels and he/she may need some time to rest.
2nd day – I will take my friend to the nearby beach. We may spend the entire day at the beach doing activities, such as, eating, riding bikes, and/or cruising on a Harbor Cruise.
3rd day – I would love to take my friend to a venue with music. So, I will prepare and check out Spaghettini of Seal Beach for its events and purchase tickets. Otherwise, I will take my friend to a museum, Museum of Contemporary Art or The Getty. Of course, I will take her/him to dinner in the local area.
4th day – I will take my friend on a tour of Downtown Los Angeles, near the Staple Center for a day of shopping, visiting, and eating. It must do is a visit to the oldest Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles, El Cholo for lunch. It would be terrible to be in the area and not go to San Antonio Winery for at a least a wine tasting!
5th day – If my friend is interested, I will offer to go to a sporting event, such as, basketball at the Staples Center or baseball at the Angel or Dodger Stadiums. Or, I will allow my friend to choose the place she most desire to visit and I will make it happen!
6th day – A day of shopping at a local mall, such as, Cerritos Mall or The Citadel Outlet is in order! As a night time excursion, we’ll go to the local casino, such as, Pechanga, Morongo, etc.
7th day – I will take my friend to a morning service at my church and spend a relaxing day of sharing, reflection, and contemplation.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I dedicate this Shoutout to my grandmother, Ammie Johnson. She raised me from birth. As a result, she greatly influenced me. She taught me many things. However, the most important was that she introduced me to the love of my Heavenly Father. Thereby, I established a relationship with Him and I maintains to this day. Thank you Granny!
