The Worlds most Entrepreneurial CPA

WHO AM I

For the last 20 years I’ve been on an Entrepreneurial journey to make business easy! Here’s a quick snapshot of what I’ve done in that time:

  • Built a retail optometry chain selling glasses – exit
  • Manufactured, imported and distributed Indian food into Woolworths – exit
  • Bought 14 Accounting Practices – Current
  • Co-founded a smartphone marketing company in US AUS NZ – exit
  • Investor in PetBox – delivering Pet Treats across the US – exit
  • Founded Crowd Funding Platform – Dreamfunda to help athletes follow their dreams – closed

Also a Husband, Dad, loves to travel and 10 x Ironman
 

WHAT I’M GOOD AT

I’m a seasoned entrepreneur, who is good at creating STRATEGIC VISION and ACTION PLANS which result in highly profitable businesses. I really love figuring out clever business models, being innovative and disrupting existing markets. I’m good at finding the key points of leverage in any business and getting it to scale quickly.
 

WHY I DO IT

I LOVE small business, I LOVE helping small business owners have a better life and be more successful because when we do that we really can help people transform their own lives, their kids lives and ultimately the whole economy!
 

WHAT I’M BUILDING NOW

Having worked with thousands of Accountants and Bookkeepers over the last 10 years and buying 14 Accounting Practices myself I have developed my 5 Step Entrepreneurial Accountant Success Strategy to show Accountants how to think like an Entrepreneur.

It’s an easy step by step formula to grow any business, build multiple streams of income, add more value to their clients and not rely 100% on their practice income ever again – resulting in a life of WEALTH and FREEDOM.
