Back Cover

Praise for The E-Myth Accountant "Read it and then do it. There's probably no professional who could benefit more from the E-Myth principles than the accounting firm owner, and longtime accounting professional and firm owner Darren Root understands that better than anyone. This book offers powerful and practical direction from two business leaders that will change your personal and professional lives." --MIKE SABBATIS, President and CEO, CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business "Saying that The E-Myth Accountant is a must-read is an understatement. For many in our profession, this book is the proverbial missing link between the advice others rely on us to provide and how we apply that advice in our own business. Michael and Darren do a masterful job of binding together a powerfully motivating book and a step-by-step guide on transforming a working practice into a thriving business." --TERESA MACKINTOSH, CPA.CITP, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Professional Market, Thomson Reuters "Darren's insight on accounting firms combined with Michael's original E-Myth vision and methodology have resulted in a book that can help all conscientious accountants improve their lives and firms while providing new levels of client service." --RANDY JOHNSTON, Executive Vice President, Network Management Group, Inc. "Every accountant should read this book. The perfect blend of theory and practice provide firm leaders with the knowledge required to build the foundation of a successful business. Putting the E-Myth concepts in practice will quickly dispel any outdated beliefs of how a firm should operate." --REN
