The people who will work on your business aren't just accountants

They’re sharp, they’re experienced, they’re well-read, they’re analytical, they’re focussed, they’re lateral, they’re mildly obsessed, they’re personable, they’re detectives, they’re businesspeople, they’re economists. And then they’re accountants.
