When is it the right time to pursue something unstable, or should you choose stability instead? During your entrepreneurial journey, you will be faced with taking a risk or playing it safe. Your experiences and goals will affect the decisions you make.
Nikole Mackenzie followed the stable option throughout the first part of her career as a CPA, but she knew she needed to take a risk to reach her goals and do her own thing her way. Nikole knew that business owners needed more than someone to do their books once a quarter — they needed someone to help them make those all-important financial decisions. She didn’t enjoy being a CPA at a traditional firm and knew she could do more for her clients, which led her to take that leap of faith, so she founded Momentum Accounting. They are more than your traditional accounting firm that does your books — they’re small business gurus. Whether it’s seamless invoicing that keeps customers paying on time or forward-looking forecasts, they’ve got great advice and innovative ideas to share. Now Nikole helps others navigate their entrepreneurial journey through her thriving, innovative business, easygoing approach, and contagious enthusiasm.
In this episode, host John Corcoran welcomes the Founder and CEO of Momentum Accounting, Nikole Mackenzie, to the show.
