When offering accounting services do we understand the opportunity we have to become a member of their board of experts?  What does that mean and who does it include?

How do the accounting principles we use in business also apply at home and vice versa? 

Helping clients realize they can always manage their money better, personally and professionally.  There is a part we can play as accounting professionals that is more than compliancy and financial reports.

Listen in as Roger and Greg consider what more we can do to help our clients.
