About me, who else?

Of course, now that you’ve joined, you’re wondering who Kirk Ward is and why I have this website. Right?

Well, to begin with, I’m an old, tired and ugly retiree who spent from 1973 to 2006 in and out of auditing and accounting. Since retirement, I’ve gotten bored and set myself a goal of helping startup business consultants have an easier time of it than I did.

When I started over forty years ago, straight out of college with a degree in Accounting, I was what has come to be called an “Asset Based Loan Examiner.” After a dozen years of traveling 50 weeks each year, in 1985 I opened my first bookkeeping and accounting practice in Kennesaw, Georgia. I was green as a gourd and struggled to get clients, just as you probably do right now.

Over the next fifteen years I built and sold a total of four offices, each one getting easier to start and build than the one before. I became an EA (Enrolled Agent) and even got a chance to write a review course for the Special Enrollment Examination for a company called Micro-Mash (now a division of Thompson-Reuters).

Finally, I tried to retire. But, I got bored and for almost three more years, I returned to my roots and did some freelance auditing. When Social Security kicked in I thought I’d rather sit here and look out over the mountaintops, so I retired again.

That lasted for about a year.

Somewhere between 2003 and 2005 I realized that all of the marketing material I was still dragging around (I’m a packrat) from when I was building my own accounting practices, still had some use, and I started building websites to make it available to startup bookkeepers and accountants.

I took all the speeches, seminars and training materials I developed in building my four accounting offices and digitized them for you. Subscribers to my membership site also have access to mastermind groups and brainstorming sessions, as well as direct letters, brand imaging, and other marketing materials that I develop as I sit here in the mountains of North Georgia.

That’s how this stuff came to be.

I’ll do my best to reward you for your leap of faith. Most of the stuff you get is worth more than the $27 a month all by itself. It don’t get any better than that, do it?
