Amy’s six week course offers a proven roadmap jam-packed with killer practices to launch or grow your client advisory services practice from a rock-solid foundation.

Amy Vetter is a sought-after trainer and keynote speaker who successfully started, scaled, and sold her own client advisory services practice. She brings more than a decade of experience coaching thousands of accounting professionals on how to build the practice of their dreams and attract and keep the clients they love.

The Winter CAS course runs January 5 - February 16, 2023 

“I’ve devoted my life to helping thousands of accounting professionals like you learn from my entrepreneurial mistakes and successes. I’ve saved them literally years of time by helping them build a successful advisory practice by creating a solid foundation for their business and using the right technology front the get-go.”

But just like you, there’s more to my story than what most people know...

  • When I was in my teens, my mom lost her business – and basically everything we owned – our home, our furniture in the process – largely because no one was looking out for her and being proactive in helping her understand and predict her financials and how it related to her operations. It was the 1980s, and bad loan practices led many small businesses to go belly up, but when it’s your own family, the pain is visceral º– losing your home, selling all of your furniture at a garage sale, taking on extra jobs as a teenager to help pay the bills – in a way headlines could never convey.

  • Watching my mom work so hard to build a thriving business only to lose everything because her accountant didn’t take the proactive steps to guide and protect her from surprises in her business made my path crystal clear: I wanted to protect business owners in similar situations, and their families, from ever being forced into a corner with no good financial options. I believed there was a better way to serve clients and always have time for what they needed, when they needed it.

What's my story?

I train accountants to become Cherished Advisors®.

Because face it, that’s really not what they teach you when you go to school to become an accountant.

So I created the roadmap I wished I had when I started out. In many ways, the businesses I built, scaled and sold helped me find my calling to train thousands of accountants like you to become Cherished Advisors.

I checked off every box on my path to creating my successful accounting career. After graduating college, I worked as an auditor for a Big 4 firm, and then for a Fortune 500 company. Then at 27 years old, I had my first baby, and I decided I needed to go out on my own. I started my business offering bookkeeping services, and since I didn’t know much about the logistics, I researched how other bookkeepers marketed themselves. I quickly found that potential clients did not just want bookkeeping, but wanted advice on how to make their businesses profitable and scalable.

When I began, there was nowhere to turn for guidance. I learned that there was a lot that I did not know about growing my own small business, as well as how to help my clients succeed. Through trial and error, I learned how to cultivate deep client relationships. Now, I help others skip struggles and shorten their runway to becoming a Cherished Advisor. I have trained thousands of accounting professionals just like you in the same methods that worked for me. I also include the best practices I have seen other firms use, which saves them years of time and a whole lot of stress.

Client Advisory Services for Accounting Firms:
Becoming A Cherished Advisor

Becoming a Cherished Advisor®

This new life you imagine is possible! Trust me. I’ve walked in your shoes and am here to guide you every step of the way. What I learned most is that it takes more than just being a Trusted Advisor, it takes what I call being a “Cherished Advisor.”

A Cherished Advisor goes beyond what’s expected of a trusted advisor. Sure, we’re implicitly trustworthy by virtue of our professional credentials. But a Cherished Advisor is someone our clients can’t imagine living without. A Cherished Advisor is:

  • A valued business partner who is invited to the decision-making table when key business decisions are being made, not after the fact.

  • A leader with the communication and analytical skills to tell the story behind the numbers to help clients make smart holistic business decisions.

  • Not necessarily a natural “techie,” but someone who knows how to identify, and leverage the latest time-saving technology to help their clients grow and thrive.

  • A self starter with an entrepreneurial mindset who knows how to quickly adapt to their clients’ business and industry needs.

  • A highly valued strategic partner whom their business clients appreciate, highly value and can’t imagine not having on their team!

Who is the course for?

Accounting professionals who:
  • Want to start or expand their advisory services practice.

  • Work within an accounting firm and are developing an advisory services practice within the firm.

  • Want to become cherished by their clients.

  • Will commit to following my roadmap to becoming a Cherished Advisor.

Who is it not for?

  • Accounting professionals who are not committed to the process. It takes more than the financial investment in the course – it’s on you to carve out the time and dedication to implement the plan. This commitment is a two-way street, and if you don't do your part, you won’t see results.
