What are you doing to make a difference in the profession, your community, the world?
I am a Director in A Hero’s Home, a non-profit dedicated to rehabbing properties and gifting them to veterans. This is a cool initiative because it was formed totally online (none of the directors have met in person) between heavy contributors to a real estate online platform called BiggerPockets
- Favorite books/websites/speakers that you find influential:
- What do you see yourself doing professionally in 10 years? In ten years I see myself as the owner of a thriving CPA firm that is quite different than a standard traditional CPA firm. One that is 100% virtual, boasts a core competency in technology solutions, and focuses on creating an amazing client experience that is unmatched by any other CPA firm out there. I plan on expanding into additional niches (currently we’re focused on real estate) and unseating large regional CPA firms from their thrones.
- What accounting conferences do you normally attend? I send my employees to accounting technology conferences but I tend to go to real estate conferences instead.
- What websites/magazines do you use to keep up on news of the accounting profession? Journal of Accountancy, CPA Practice Advisor, The Tax Advisor
