Meet Dale R. Smith
My name is Dale Smith. I am the owner and CEO of The Business Net, Ltd. a company that provides business set-up and coaching services, assistance with accounting, and tax planning and preparation.

I have a BA degree (major physics/math), an MBA degree (major business management), and hundreds of hours of tax law and practice. Currently my jobs include: CEO, senior accountant, senior tax preparer, tax strategy and planning consultant, business coach, accounting software set-up consultant, finance manager, general manager of all aspects of the administration, and Client go to person.
What Have I Done?
When I received my MBA degree I thought there would be all kinds if job offers, but none came. So I had to find one on my own. Even while employed I was drawn to having my own business. Circumstances led me to own and operate a wide variety of businesses. Some of these were; retail stores, restaurant, real estate limited partnership, a towing company, a construction company, an investment products marketing company, accounting services, business coaching, and tax preparation. Most of these businesses did not do well. I did not have a clear plan and objectives, and in some cases relied on a partner to run the day to day business honestly. While working with these businesses I had a number of realizations. I formed The Business Net, Ltd. to allow me to share those realizations.In my role as business coach and tax planner these realizations have helped a number of clients create and operate quite successful businesses.
