As a CPA (Cutthroat Pirate Accountant) for 20 years and worked with many startups, mid-sized and over 150 publicly traded companies throughout the world. I have bought them, sold them and even scuttled them by banks order.
My passion is business, all types and learning new things especially their secrets.
I have compiled them all into a treasure map - and eventually a sit-com - but it will be an entertaining tale of setting sail with many of the greatest pirate legends you never heard of yet.
We will learn the four things all successful business have in common, you will walk away with that mighty treasure trove of knowledge especially if you are a start-up.
Are you worried about the government catching you for not complying with the Stamp Tax? I can give you the keys to keep you out of the stocks by doing these two things.
Are you afraid of the sharks? Don't worry the lamprey are who you should fear. Sharks kill and eat you.
Are you afraid of the Crew Mutining? I can tell you the secret to that as well.
This is like a TED Talk given by one of the most extroverted CPA in the State who has spent years on an adventure he would like to share with you, except I can talk longer than 15 minutes. You will walk away with energy and the map to a world of secrets to be a successful startup.
