There’s a more human approach as a client as opposed to being just a number. I love how you say: I want to find out what you need specifically so that you’re not just a number, but it’s really like hey what is it that you want to accomplish? What you do for me is that you help me to keep me on target. You don’t make it a mystery. I sleep with peace at night regarding my finances. I get excited when I get ready to talk to Randy. Who gets excited about talking to their accountant?
