As I dove into discovering more, I found a firm creating real solutions to the myriad of issues CPAs face working for traditional CPA firms and starting their own practice. Here is a company that seeks to put its greatest asset, its people, first and give them the tools to not only exceptionally serve their clients and build strong client relationships but also thrive in their own lives.
