I am searching for anyone who was like me 6 years ago; sitting in public accounting, while secretly working with my small book of clients on the side hoping to get the nerve to leave. I want to connect with accountants that are ready to make the transition from employee to entrepreneur.

If that’s you – we should chat! I would love to share my experience with you, so you can avoid some pretty common pitfalls I made.

Book recommendation - "Ride of a lifetime" by Robert Iger. Story of someone who started as a studio operator and went on to become the CEO of Walt Disney.

Really relatable to most of us who are employees and not entrepreneurs. Books on Steve Jobs, Elon Musk are all good but I loved Robert's story more as I could relate and aspire. How he takes tough decisions, how he negotiated with Steve Jobs to acquire Pixar, his honesty, humility etc. are all something we can learn from. Go for it fishes 😄
