Will you have time to fulfill your Life’s mission?

Before I graduated from high school, I knew I wanted to be a CPA.  I know it is not for everyone, but it came easy to me and was one of the highest paid professions for women.  It kept me off the streets.  Later in my career, that choice grew into a personal life mission.  I took the plunge and brought passion to my career.  I committed to sharing my knowledge and experience to help business owners financially succeed. 

That mission has helped me make decisions to get me where I am today.  It has triggered my passion and fueled the energy I needed to pick myself up when I stumbled.  It gave me direction and something worthwhile to work towards and in the end – achievements to be proud of. 

As I work with others, I discover that not everyone has a life mission.  I see business owners struggle to make decisions.  Their paths have many curves and detours and in some cases, they just give up.  A life mission provides focus.  It  provides a focus so strong that it clears out the clutter and feeds your soul.

Do you have a life mission? 

Time passes quickly.  Remember the movie Back to the Future – this is the future.  Each of us only has 24 hours a day.  We can never save it, trade it or get it back.  

I ask again, do you have a life mission?

If not what are you waiting for?


Dear Friends,

On June 4, I will celebrate my first year as a “true business”.  I have discovered that the 3rd time is a charm.

I took the plunge and made the commitment to grow up.  Today I work in an office building, have a regular phone system, networked computers and have staff to pay.  Some owners jump right in, while others cautiously dip their toes in to check the water.  My approach is cautious – what else would you expect from a CPA?

A special thank you to the clients I serve and Jodi, my assistant & sister, who puts up with me!

It has been a fun year and I look forward to an exciting year ahead.

Very best wishes,


In closing,

Individually we can have a life mission, but so can a business.  The business plan can help clarify that mission and how to execute it.  Personally, I find the written plan is easier to bring to life.  Click here to get our “THE BUSINESS PLAN CHEAT SHEET”,
