Salim Omar has spent the last 20 years uncovering the keys to success of any CPA firm.
He’s used his financial expertise and his own struggles in the early years of starting and growing his CPA firm as a springboard for understanding the success principles that create accounting firms that are profitable, respected and fun for their employees.
Feeling unfulfilled and tired of corporate politics and a long time commute, in 1996 Salim left a “cushy” corporate, CFO position with a corner office to fulfill his mission of starting his own CPA firm.
He soon found out that this was no easy task, and he struggled with low-paying clients, poor cash flow and a high employee turnover.
After going $100,000 into debt, Salim made it his mission to transform his struggling practice into highly profitable, 12+ person firm that it is today. Best of all, he works only a few days a week while his practice continues to thrive.
Salim is considered by many as the #1 advisor and thought leader for small and mid-sized accounting firms, He is the author of the popular book, The Ultimate CPA Practice in the New Economy and has been featured in a range of prestigious publications such as the CPA Journal, Financial Advisor and Wealth Manager and on the cover ofAccounting Today.
