As an CPA and small business owner I often get asked “What can you do to help me be more successful in the future?”. When thinking about this, I came to realize that the majority of accountants are historians. As we all know, we can’t change history, but we can learn from it to impact the future.
When I decided to start my own firm, I knew I would have to play the part of historian because that is where many have a need. But, I also knew that I wanted to help guide other businesses to success. What we have become business consultants. We use the “history” to create a map for the future and are helping clients navigate the map.
Along those lines, my posts will be focused on what a small business owner (or individual) should be doing to prepare for the future. This can be as simple as reminding readers to make quarterly tax estimates or more detailed, such as commenting on tax law changes that would better position a small business owner for future success.
I look forward to your comments and welcome your questions.
