Hiring VA's

My bud, John Hilton, Founder of Terra Bella Law Group joined The Business Growth Advantage show!

After 25 years in the healthcare industry, where he worked as a flight paramedic, educator, and hospital executive, he decided to serve his community as an attorney.

As the father of an adult child with Autism, he discovered the power of planning for families of individuals with special needs, and focus his practice on serving this community in particular. Although he has been serving primarily families in southern Arizona, he is in the process of expanding his practice into other states as a virtual law firm, still focusing on serving even a broader community of special needs families.

John’s passion is helping other families of children with special needs, and he understands that, like him, these families are also business owners and parents of neurotypical children, and they are concerned about their own futures as well as that of their children.

Join us on another episode of The Business Growth Advantage show as we explore John’s unwavering commitment to improving the lives of families with special needs and be inspired by his invaluable insights on how letting go and hiring VA's can help you take your business to greater heights!
