Owning your own business is the best path to a life you truly desire.

Why I Believe This in My Bones

I watched my aunt and uncle build a multi-million dollar business in less than a decade when I was a child.

No, it wasn’t a fancy-pants VC-backed start-up. They started in their basement with a desk, a telephone, and a powerful goal.


Even before high school, I saw owning a business gives the power to shape your life. I believe this in my bones even today.


My foundation came from the construction industry.


The day I was handed that piece of parchment saying I had earned a B.A. in Accounting, I felt ready to take on the world. My first venture was as an Accounting Manager for a small family-owned homebuilder.


Going from an orderly classroom to the chaos of building two hundred houses a year was a whole new kind of education. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.


Ultimately my independent nature took over.


I needed to be my own boss. I wanted my hard work to be for my goals – not someone else’s.


I hit the books once again to study for the CPA exam. Shout out to never having to do that again!


I earned my CPA license, and six months later, I bought the firm I worked for (and, later on, a competitor.)


Owning and running a CPA firm has never been dull.

Let’s get real. It’s like riding Space Mountain all day – twists and turns you don’t see coming.


Can you relate?


But, it gave me the privilege of working closely with fascinating people running intriguing businesses.


From pediatricians to funeral directors (literally)


Twenty-plus years of doing taxes, payroll, bookkeeping, and auditing get you up close and personal in people’s lives.


I’ve seen and lived the good, the bad, and the frightening parts of running a business. Best of all, I’ve gained so much wisdom.


Here’s a little secret:

The biggest elephant in the room is. . .

We’re taught long hours, and hard work are the secret to success. I won’t sugarcoat it. They’re definitely required.


But, if that’s your only strategy – you sacrifice so much to roll the dice. 


What if a few well-chosen strategies could put the odds in your favor?


That’s why I’m using my decades of experience to coach service providers online.


I’m here to show you how to reach your goals while staying true to three important values:


Financial freedom,


Purposeful work, and


Meaningful relationships.


Let me repeat. . .

Owning your own business is the best path to a life you truly desire.


I’m here to help you get there.
