We had the good fortune of connecting with George Dandridge Jr. EA and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi George, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
3C’s! C1 – COMMITMENT – The elimination of all options. C2 – CONSISTENCY – Relentless execution of improving upon successful habits. C3 – COLLABORATION – Genuine altruism will serve its facilitator exponentially. I believe every successful person masters these three principles at their core. The same goes for the brand. COMMITMENT to serving their clients a quality product/service. Consistently delivering the message of their value proposition and COLLABORATING with other businesses, vendors and community with like values to help execute their mission. You’ll notice that the SHIELD is CONSISTENTLY represented in every division of our practice. It’s the constant reminder of our COMMITMENT to protecting our clients and their families.

What should our readers know about your business?
Dandridge Investment Group consists of six divisions, all of which are COMMITTED to the elevation of the business community across the country and globally. Elite 8 Tax & Financial Services is the flagship division which in essence is 2 in 1. The Tax side offers tax planning, preparation, education and resolution for individuals and business owners of all sizes. The financial services side features our “Business Operation Success Suite” or B.O.S.S. for short. It’s uniquely tailored to each individual businesses needs, taking into account their current capabilities and strategic growth. It includes entity formation, bookkeeping/accounting, payroll and business consulting. Our other financial services include Life Insurance for individuals and businesses and financial literacy. Expanding the brand wasn’t easy. Mastering COLLABORATION was hard learned lesson but critical in being able to go further. Two key divisions that led to overcoming this challenge were Elite 8 Tax Pro Solutions, which trains and develops new tax practitioners and assist them in entering the tax industry affordably, and BOSS Talk Radio, an online talk radio platform that highlights entrepreneurs and business leaders from across all industries, discussing the highs, lows and best practices of entrepreneurship. Our ability to grow the brand without compromising our principle cornerstones (Knowledge, Integrity, Security, Service) is what I’m most proud of. Even this year amidst unprecedented global challenges, our firm is launching two additional divisions. CANN-I-BOSS ACCOUNTING, specializing in cost accounting for the cannabis industry, and B.I.O.M. publishing, which will bring you books, blogs, speeches, webinars, and financial education modules. “How fast you run is futile if you don’t execute the handoff.” ~ George Dandridge Jr. EA We are committed to handing the next generation a better platform for success, without them having to reach back to pick up the baton.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
As a natural introvert I don’t get out much, however, as a New Orleans native, there’s not anything I enjoy more than great food and music. As such I’d have to take them to Cafe Mil’a to start the day off with a great brunch. Leaving there I’d have to swing by LaSoa Cigar lounge to take down a premium stick. I’d stop by WaterTree USA for some premium Alkaline water to stay hydrated before heading to Deep Ellum to take in the sights. From there it’d be off to Taco Patron for some great food and socializing and closing out the day at The Attach’e or Cu’Noma Cigar Lounge.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There are countless COLLABORATORS I can attribute with my success and the success of the brand. I’m a student of my craft, business, and success, so many mentors are indirect. The biggest shoutouts would have to be to my mother for the infinite prayers and sacrifices, to my team for the fullfillment of my vision and to my family who ensures that i keep grounded and balanced.
