About the Author

After serving 6 years in the US Navy, I completed 7 years of education in accounting and earned a Masters of Science in Accounting. I practiced as a Certified Public Accountant for over 12 years and have provided bookkeeping, accounting, and tax services for over 27 years. During that time I personally feel that my clients taught me more than I taught them.

    I am happy to reach out and let you know that I received an offer of Controller for a construction company out in Calabasas, California that builds tract housing communities. Why is this relevant? Your articles were a factor in my success, and reading them made learning easy and gave me tremendous confidence in my interviews, and I could not have done it without them. Thank you

    (The interview is one thing, but now I have to actually apply the information in your articles, in a real-time environment, so let’s hope this information is solid 🙂
