Thanks to Sharra Chan of Orange Door, Inc. for introducing this month’s podcast!

Jason begins by telling us what it really means to blow stuff up. He and Greg discuss a recent blog article by Jason, in which Jason questions the legal structures and the conservative nature of most CPA firms. Greg then explains the service profit chain. It all starts with satisfied employees. Our brilliant guest Michelle Golden gives us a sneak peak into the topic and title of her new book and shares some stories about her career and marketing projects with CPA firms.
