In Praise of Jody

“I first met Jody on Twitter several years ago and knew that her and her like-minded tribe would make an impact on the CPA profession. Her book is that story and how she is creating a firm that is “not your father’s CPA firm.” she offers a roadmap of sorts to a new way of thinking about and running a practice – worth a read.”
