What Clients Say

CPA Firm Experience

“It is a tremendous asset for Guy to have the experience of working inside a firm. Guy understands the opportunities and problems in an organization. His educational background in counseling prior to coaching is a strong asset that mixes well with his firm experiences. I would definitely recommend Guy to others.”

Personable Approach

“Guy’s approach was unique in that he was very hands on, easy going, and easy to get in touch with. Guy is good at observing and gave honest feedback about a partner that was adversely affecting our firm. He then developed a process to move forward…. I love working with Guy and would absolutely recommend him.”

– Craig Springer, CPA
Partner of Maillie, LLP

Real Life Experience

“There are many people in the service industry, but what separates Guy is his experiences working within a CPA firm. When Guy teaches in the classroom, he provides real life experiences of things that were implemented and worked for other firms…so when people become partners, it’s an easier transition and they don’t have to morph themselves into something they aren’t.”

Partner of Whitley Penn
