Hello, my name is Becky, and this is my first blog. I have begun this blog to announce that I have launched a CPA firm, Rebecca E. Miller, CPA, PLLC. This is the beginning of an adventure 17 years in the making. I have had an amazing and satisfying public accounting career serving clients and learning from outstanding CPAs in two states. Now, I have planted my own flag in Cary, North Carolina and I love it!
Why do I love it? I love working with clients. All kinds of clients. I like wealthy clients, I like working clients, I like entrepreneurs, I like families, I like retirees, I like trustees and executors. I like helping trusts, individuals, families, and businesses with their taxes and finances.
Which brings me to the second reason I love it. I love figuring out the ever-changing tax code and crunching numbers. Don’t judge me. The world needs folks that enjoy reading the tax code and doing arithmetic with currency. I provide a service to those who do not enjoy reading the Internal Revenue Code, Regulations, Revenue Procedures, and new tax bills. I aid those that struggle to maintain books and records. These books are not exciting novels, and these records are not intriguing historical artifacts. We are talking debits, credits, T accounts, receipts, reconciliations, balance sheets, and income statements. These are the tasks that get my blood pumping. The reason I look forward to coming to the office.
You may say, “That’s all well and good, but why strike out on your own? Why not stay in the safe waters of a big firm?” I reply with the shout of William Wallace, “FREEDOM!” I can help anyone now. I don’t have to worry about whether a client fits the lens of the firm’s ideal client. I can help how I choose. I can provide the services and solutions needed instead of looking for candidates for a new service offering. I can charge a fair fee for my services because I do not have to cover worldwide overhead and hit margin targets.
This new chapter of my amazing and satisfying career began a month ago. I have found the business community to be encouraging and welcoming. My professional networks are excited about the new opportunities that this presents to collaborate and serve mutual clients. My family and friends are happy to see me more often. It has only been 41 days since my liberation, a terrific 41 days. Stay tuned in the days to come for information on my blog to help your family and your business navigate the complex world of taxation.
