September 5, 2019

On Saturday, August 31, ONE STOP Taxes, the fastest growing network of virtual tax franchises in the U.S, hosted: “OST LIVE.” 

OST LIVE was an impactful day filled with a high level of experiential engagements, power packed networking, and entrepreneurial opportunities including: “Breakfast with Bosses”, “OST LIVE”, and the “OST LIVE After Party.” To date, Co-Founders Mowbray and Cherina Rowand provide top tier support to more than 750 active franchisees across the U.S. This Labor Day weekend, guests came out to learn more about franchise opportunities with ONE STOP Taxes.

The day began with “Breakfast with Bosses.” An exclusive event that celebrated black businesses in the “Black Mecca” and built bridges to higher heights for attendees and the business community as a whole. The event was hosted by Emmy Award Winning Journalist Francesca Amiker and Top Millennial Money Expert Ash “Cash” Exantus. Guests experienced an upwardly mobile conversation about connection, leadership and collaboration while enjoying an exclusive breakfast including, assorted fruits, traditional breakfast items, & mimosas.

“What I see surrounding me today are a room full of dreamers. People who wanted to go out and build something for themselves. You all have done that in your own way within your own businesses and that is to be applauded. That is the purpose of this breakfast–to celebrate all of the things you have accomplished and what you will continue to accomplish within your community. We live in an environment that is ever-changing, and it is our duty to go out and create the world that we want to see. It is a pleasure to be in a room of visionaries and to have the opportunity to network with you,” stated Cherina Rowand (COO of ONE STOP Taxes).

Next up was “OST  LIVE,” a conference that allowed potential franchisees to learn more about the ONE STOP Taxes business model and what it takes to start their own franchise from the ground up. Guests engaged in candid conversations with  Mowbray and Cherina Rowand (Co-Founders of ONE STOP Taxes) as well as several other leaders within their company and acquired fundamentals on how to maximize clients while maxing out tax returns. Guests received access to exclusive promotions and attended sessions on building their business’ identity through marketing strategy and social media.

“We want to use ONE STOP Taxes as a way to help regular people. Let’s face it–the playing field is often uneven. Most people don’t have thousands of dollars or an inheritance to start their own business. We want to bridge that gap with our business model by completely removing the upfront costs so that everyone will have access to start. We want to help others use ONE STOP Taxes as a vehicle to fund their dreams,” stated Mowbray Rowand (CEO of ONE STOP Taxes).

This day of excellence concluded with the “OST LIVE After Party” with a live remote from Streetz 94.5 hosted by the Grammy-nominated artist, star of Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta, and host of Streetz 94.5 FM’s “Streetz Morning Takeover”, Yung Joc. This experience served as an opportunity for all to network with the franchise owners who are “making it happen” while guests enjoyed live music, great vibes, complimentary cocktails & more–making the “OST LIVE After Party” the perfect turn up for Labor Day Weekend. Atlanta welcomes this company, as they establish their headquarters in the Atlanta market, providing hundreds of Atlantians with job opportunities.
