“Being a part of CPAPlus Network has made a tremendous difference in my business.  I have learned from other members how to improve my practice in areas specific to pricing, increasing revenue, managing rapid growth and staffing.  Without the group, I would feel lost in trying to navigate through the responsibilities of helping all of my new clients.”
