“You need to hire Kevin...yesterday, if possible." "He saved me $30k in income taxes with his first piece of advice. ”Now, you would have thought I’d know better 12 years into owning my firm, and 10 years into coaching with Atticus...but, cards on the table, I was guilty of abdicating my attention to my bookkeeping. Turns out, I had tolerated a bookkeeper for about 10 years that would come in once a week. Every time I asked for advice for how things should be done, she’d shrug and say, “I just pay the bills.” I also had a suspicion that lots of stuff was getting missed. Fortunately, the COVID slowdown gave me an opportunity to look deeper into my numbers and realize that I wasn’t getting the best advice, or service. I asked my coach Steve Riley for help and he leaned in close and said, “You need Kevin. He’s my secret weapon. I’ll introduce you to him, but I can’t promise he’ll take you on.” After a chance to interview each other, I hired Kevin and his team. As you read above, the first thing he did was spot one thing I could do that would save me $30k in income taxes that year (covering his cost for that year). After that, he fixed my bookkeeping and got my ship running straight. But Kevin offers so much more than bookkeeping - he’s a true planning partner. For the first time in my career, I have a tax advisor that understands the challenges and rewards of a growth-orientated business owner. The year after adding Kevin Cameron and his team I grew 75%. Was it all his doing? Of course not, but he was a necessary ingredient of the secret recipe and I’m hooked for life. If you’re serious about growing your firm, and playing a bigger game as a business owner, you have to work with Kevin. Or at least, beg him to let you work together. It’s the best decision you’ll make."
