Greer, SC, USA – May 14, 2021 – Courtney Epps, founder of OTB Tax, provides nourishment to children in need with every $1 her accounting practice makes. Last month, Epps hit the milestones of providing 5 million servings of advanced immune support through MannaRelief.
In her best-selling book ‘What’s Your Plan B?’, author & tax strategist, Courtney Epps provides insights to help readers position themselves for massive tax deductions. Yet, for Epps, one of the most influential lessons inside the book details becoming a “social business”. While researching the book, Epps’ was introduced to the idea of social business, a business with an aim of addressing a social case. At first, Epps did not fully grasp the idea and considered it a sales gimmick. However, after meeting Sam Caster, founder of MannaRelief, a non-profit working to whole food nourishment to children in need, the power of social business became clear. “My purpose went from providing for my family and myself and helping clients to also working to eradicate childhood malnutrition,” says Epps.
Now, Epps is able to provide nourishment to children in need with every $1 her accounting practices make. And, because the donations to MannaRelief are based upon her practice’s gross income, she is able to write off 100-percent of the proceeds as the cost of goods sold. “There is nothing else like the feeling of knowing that because of our business, and that decision (to partner with MannaRelief), not only are we helping our clients and providing for ourselves, every day we provide nourishment to more than 15,000 medically fragile and malnourished children and we provide fresh water to 100 people a day through MannaRelief.org and Thelastwell.org,” explains Epps.
Epps believes social business is a way for people to find purpose in their lives, while also providing an opportunity to have financial benefits for their families. “I suggest that you find something you are passionate about and give to that cause. When your passion and profits meet, it will create something inside you like I was also introduced to … which completely transformed my way of thinking. It made me want to strive to not only be better for myself but to also strive for a much bigger purpose than simply my own.”
The impact of working with MannaRelief has led Epps to aid in the efforts of two more non-profits: Operation Underground Railroad and The Last Well. Operation Underground Railroad works to help children escape from sex trafficking and provides them with care once they are freed. For the past 11 years, The Last Well has been on a mission to provide safe drinking water throughout Liberia.
Epps is also the owner of OTB Tax where they empower small-to-medium-sized businesses and families to have a life that is more relaxing and less taxing. They do this through teaching tax minimization strategies, offering financial consulting services, and creating a community of the wealthy minded.
