This is a story of a personal and professional journey which come together nicely.  Consider the thought that we are either working to live or living to work. 

Listen as Scott and Roger review choices made and how we are each finding our path, identifying our passion and purpose and then hopefully living in alignment with it!  Trust us, it’s a discussion you don’t want to miss.

Life is a journey and the choices we make take us on an adventure, but it is anyone’s guess where it really may take us.  Are you open to an adventure?

So with that context, let’s also discuss business. 

Scott is the founder of CPA Academy.  How did it start, where is it going and what should we know as it related to the future of Continuing Professional Education, CPE?  What should we know about formal online training and education?

As you listen, consider the difference between training, certification – confidence, competence and how it applies to you as you offer quality accounting services.

This is a conversation we are sure you’ll enjoy.
