Episode Details


Listen as Alyssa shares her story along with the lessons learned to build a successful accounting business.

Alyssa and Roger discuss the unforeseen challenges and the corresponding solutions to address each.  From workflow, systems to client relations and everything in between.

Consider this, finding someone to be front facing and interacting with clients in a way that meets our expectations and standards can be a hard, but they do exist.  We can build a business that thrives without us working within it doing the day-to-day tasks.

Sit back and enjoy the conversation in this next episode of “Building the Premier Accounting Firm”.



Your Host: Roger Knecht, president of Universal Accounting Center

Guest Name: Alyssa Lang 


Alyssa, aka the Workflow Queen, teaches bookkeepers and accountants how to utilize tech and automation to create better workflows, systems, and processes. As a result, they can run their practices on autopilot, stress less and save time!


After being in the accounting world for five years, Alyssa struggled with streamlining her practice. She felt frustrated and nervous and couldn’t sleep at night not knowing where her client work would come from. She was overwhelmed by all the daily tasks, lost track of work and just couldn’t keep up.


Alyssa hit a wall and decided to make a change, so she started to automate her practice by creating workflows, systems, and processes. She was then able to run her practice and take on more clients, scale and provide excellent service in the process! These days Alyssa’s a full-time educator. She’s also an Asana Certified Pro and her courses and resources have helped hundreds of bookkeepers and accountants worldwide!


Fun fact: Alyssa’s a certified skydiver and is obsessed with great white sharks + is mildly OBSESSED with Deadpool!
