The CPA Advocate
By Rick Boxx
January 28, 2011
While teaching in Ohio I had the pleasure of meeting Jim, the founder of a CPA practice. If your traditional view of CPAs is one of introverted and passionless, Jim would shock you.
He's a man filled with contagious passion, joy and enthusiasm. He constantly promotes his profession, and recruits others to join him. Passion is a powerful recruiting tool.
Jim's business has been fruitful, not only due to his competence and hard work, but also because he's chosen to be a vocal advocate of his profession.
Proverbs 12:14 teaches, "From the fruit of their lips people are filled with good things, and the work of their hands brings them reward."
You can bad mouth your profession or you can be an advocate. Which will you be?
