Your Host: Roger Knecht, president of Universal Accounting Center

Our Guest: Fred Hunzeker, CPA

After a career in accounting, as a controller and CFO, the time came to work with and help small businesses.  It began simply helping friends and family with their taxes, but the time came to make the leap and do this seriously, treating the hobby and favor as a business.

Even when offering quality services there are challenges.  Listen as Fred Hunzeker shares insights and suggestions to progress in your business to achieve your goals.  Fred’s real-world advice, his candor is appreciated as we each work with our clients to help them succeed.

It is okay to learn as you go when building your business.  Do not get caught up thinking you can’t succeed and move forward with an abundance mindset.  Care about the people, your clients, and the business will come.

Roger and Fred speak openly about client relations and what we each hope to do with them as their trusted advisors.  What is it we can do to help clients understand they are more than a number to us?  Basically we need to be genuinely interested in their company and their wellbeing,  Let us consider ways to be more down to earth with our clients.
