Alf’s Legacy Saved
Allen takes the challenge of defining the timeless principles his father learned over a lifetime and places them into two books. In his first book, In the Black, Allen distills his father’s work into nine powerful principles to make any small business profitable. With this accomplishment, he realizes another significant part of his father’s legacy that needs to be preserved. Alf’s beginnings were bringing failing businesses from a place of near death to a place of security and growth.
Allen then wrote his second book, Red to Black, and designed it in a “how-to” fashion using the principles his father began implementing as “The Turn-Around King.”
With the two books complete and a thriving education business beneath him, Allen is grateful for his accomplishments. A Father’s legacy is secured and a son’s duty and desire to memorialize that legacy is fulfilled, he has truly honored his father.
A New World of Information
Like any remarkable story, there persists and ebb and flow of struggle and triumph and the growing story of Universal Accounting is no different. In these recent years there has been rapid and constant change in the way we consume information. Allen began to face this as he started writing his books and now faces the challenges of teaching accounting principles to small businesses all over the world via the web. He doesn’t face this alone as the weight of responsibility has been transferred to a new leader who has risen from the tutelage of now two small-business greats.
Roger Knecht is that leader and his charge is to test the timelessness of Universal Accounting’s principles. Post-secondary education is a whole new world compared to when Alf first started The Universal Accounting Center. The brick and mortar classroom Alf taught in has morphed into wall-less online courses and programs with a mixture of everything in between. The transition is not easy and change only seems to move faster as Roger works to keep up with a constantly expanding e-learning industry.
