The first half of my childhood was spent in Detroit going to Belle Isle, enjoying world famous coney dogs with my grandpa at Genies Wienies on Conant Street and doing what we now call guerilla marketing with my sister for my parents’ side biz, a novelty store in our basement. Then, we moved to a working farm waaaay north of the city and life was all about goats and pigs.
I'm an accountant and a college instructor who's worked with and educated hundreds of small business owners since 2009, saving them millions.
I’m a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n roll...
Now, I'm going to share a secret...
Being an accountant wasn’t even on my radar while I attended seven colleges and universities before graduating. Yes, seven. I know what you’re thinking—no, I wasn’t a professional student. I worked full-time throughout those years and couldn’t decide if I wanted to go into law or start a business.
After moving cross country and managing an Asheville, North Carolina, architecture firm for seven years, the housing bubble went bust, and so did all the jobs at the firm. Then-jobless, I started dabbling in recruiting consulting, website development, internet marketing and bookkeeping.
Considering I’d managed the accounting and payroll at the architecture firm, and had also managed a mixed-use development company, an a-ha moment inspired me to tap into my existing network of architects and engineers to offer bookkeeping services. And, biz took off.
