The firms have been built with a vision for a new type of accounting/CPA firm: partnering with you and with your advisors to reach your own unique goals with a unique approach for each client. This means going beyond just tax preparation and meeting just once a year. This means ME coming out to YOUR place of business to see where your time and energy are invested. This means working with your financials from a different perspective than just saving taxes.
We believe in:
- Timely communication: Whether by phone, text, email or even coming out to your place of business – there is value in being able to get ahold of your CPA when the question from the banker comes in or you need to evaluate an opportunity opening up.
- Adding value: It’s more than the hours I put into your work. It’s about bringing a different perspective or maybe helping you integrate that next generation into the family farm. I don’t bill by the hour and no two clients have the exact same structure – I tailor the billing to what you need and expect from me. I want you to call me, email me, text me without worrying about what it’s going to cost.
- Professional relationships: Having your entire team on board and working to reach your goals is vital. I want to help your banker get the financials they need so they can get you financing you need. I want to help your attorney set up the proper structure for your business and/or your estate so you can operate without worry. My job is not to know it all – it is to find the people who do know it all and get them in place to help you succeed.
My mentor taught me “Do what you do best and hire the rest.” As business and agriculture both continue to evolve with ever-more complexities, it is more and more important that you have partners along side you helping you be your best while you can focus on what you do best. It’s my job to be the “nerd” and love the numbers while you focus on your cattle, your fields, your business.
