We’re pretty jazzed to announce the winners of the 2015 Ultimate Accounting Achievement in Service contest. These accounting entrepreneurs showed initiative in improving their accounting business and serving their clients better.
Essay applications were judged based on tips and tools implemented to boost the quality of their practice, improve their services, or increase their profits. The ten winners receive an engraved trophy and the top three winners win cash.
The contest winners were announced at the “Advancing Your Practice” session at the Fourth Annual Ultimate Accounting vCon on May 8, 2015.
The first place winner is Kim Painter from Carrollton, Texas. She implemented a revenue plan in her business and got more focused about marketing.
The second place winner is Robyn Smithson of Smithson Bookkeeping and Business Services in Reno, Nevada. Robyn took the phrase “working on your business instead of in your business” to a whole new level and implemented many changes as a result of that mindset shift.
The third place winner is Cindy Hovig of Beyond Balanced Books in Morgan Hill, California. She moved from being a solo practitioner to managing a staff of three people to leverage and grow her business.
From new pricing techniques to offering higher dollar services to implementing specific technologies, the ladies and gentlemen that round out the top ten are:
- Jan Baudat of QB Jan LLC
- Jami Cervantes of Cervantes Support Services
- Carey Gay of Treasure Tax, LLC
- Shelley Kvamme-MacDonald
- Scott Sander of Sander & Associates, P. A.
- Cindy Schroeder of Bright Bookkeeping
- Laura Spandrio of Secure Accounting Solutions
Please congratulate these talented winners!
