I hope you will find this episode as exciting and informative as I have. Robert shared to us such great insights when it comes to growing your business, whether big or small.

“I felt that I’m able to have the most impact in business from an accounting angle, and I mean, really, who I am at my core as a problem solver. That’s what I love to do.”
“So, I mean, I’m not gonna say that a balance sheet and income statement isn’t important, right? It definitely is. But I’m a firm believer that I would prefer to look at what I’m actually doing today to drive a result for tomorrow, and the actions that I can actually change.”
“Really what I get from that is that I’m able to impact change with clients in such a substantial way, and coming into a business where the client is either marginally profitable, in a lot of instances are working more hours than they ever had before. They’re anxious, they’re stressed out and being able to help that client get to a much better place, and seeing the amount of impact that I can have on someone’s life. Not on just the owner’s lives, but on the employees within the agency as well. It provides me with fulfillment.”
“There’s only so much that I can actually scale to and I was hoping that I’d be able to touch more lives through putting the way that I function and the way that I work with agencies in paper and in writing.”
