Guy Pearson, founder of Practice Ignition, turned down an offer of partnership in an accounting firm at age 24 to travel around the world for a year. After running out of money, Guy returned to Australia and started an accounting firm out of his house.

Geni Whitehouse is our special guest on the #podcast this week! Geni shares what's holding firms back from offering more consulting services, and how to build confidence as a public speaker when you're naturally nerdy and shy.

We also talk about how Geni’s #CPA firm carved out a niche serving the wine industry — not just with marketing mumbo jumbo but with a proprietary industry scorecard that created real value for her clients.
