Russ and I were living our careers out at a mid-sized local firm. Our degrees proudly displayed in our offices for all to see. What could be wrong… everything! It didn’t feel right. While hard to pinpoint, I think it boiled down to following a pre-defined, static process and delivering a product, not being part of a team creating solutions. So we set forth to do it differently.
It was scary to think of ourselves as entrepreneurial accountants, but it’s absolutely true. Building our practice has allowed us to understand exactly that, how to build a business. This has been invaluable in my client relationships. What’s kept me young, okay — sharp, has been the ability to adapt over the years. I think that has served us and our clients well.
Case in point is how we’ve realigned our Firm in the last decade. Surrounding ourselves with great people, it’s allowed me to focus on my clients and shed some of the day-to-day management to professional team members. I’m not saying it has been easy. I’m not saying it has been perfect. But I will say sticking with it has absolutely been the best decision and allowed us to thrive.
My focus and energy now is continuing to evolve to meet the needs of our clients. I’m committed to the continuity of this Firm and the relationships we each hold dear. There is such a strong team at MGA, and I know the future is even brighter. We think of ourselves as partners with our clients, building strong relationships as business consultants.
