Most people think accounting can be boring, even soul-less. And, honestly, under some circumstances it can be.
But we founded our company on a different principle: we want to use our knowledge and experience to enrich people’s lives and businesses. And when you start from the idea that an accounting firm can improve people’s lives, accounting suddenly becomes interesting, rewarding and even exciting.
Our goal is to help people have less anxiety about managing their finances, to maximize their income and run their businesses better. Let’s face it, giving people a stronger financial foundation can absolutely contribute to a better quality of life.
We met a few years back working at a CPA firm that was in many ways like a lot of accounting organizations that we know. The firm did fundamentally sound work and was competent enough. But we knew we were capable of much more – so we decided to build an entrepreneurial firm dedicated to treating our internal people like valuable resources and our clients like treasured assets.
This idea is captured in our company slogan:
Sternbach and Rose CPAs
