Not Your Typical Accounting Website with Joshua Lance

Today I had the pleasure of speaking with the founder and managing director of Lancecpa.comJoshua Lance. Josh spent his early career at a top-10 national public accounting firm before working at an ultra-high net worth family office. At present, Lance CPA Group Website specializes in serving craft breweries, digital consulting agencies, and creative artisans.

Aside from being an entrepreneur himself, Josh also helps other entrepreneurs grow and manage their businesses, big or small. Even if your business is a small one, he believes that it is still a very important business. So in today’s episode, we will dive into Josh’s story to find out what it takes to make a business grow.

[00:01 – 08:49] Opening Segment

This segment starts with my overview of all the valuable pieces of business advice that we can take from Josh Lance’s journey as an entrepreneur. Like a number of other entrepreneurs, Josh started this journey when he was young—with a mobile lemonade stand when he was only five! But why exactly did he take his lemonade stand on the road? Listen closely as he shares why he always looks at the WHY of something and solve the problem around that.

[08:50 – 17:15] From Traditional Work to Digital Marketing Journey 

When he was a young CPA working for a big firm, like many other young people, Josh was not spared from encountering problems with bureaucracy. Refusing to just put up with it, he shares how he decided to build his own path and how he transitioned from working in the firm to starting his own digital business. Are you thinking of also doing the same? Don’t forget to take notes on what Josh did to smooth out this transition.

[17:16 – 29:30] Lance CPA Group: “Not A Typical Accounting Website”

“Jump and try and stumble along the way because you’re not gonna fly right away.” Josh shares how he initially stumbled with his new business, how he overcame his stumbles and fails, and how he realized how important it is to focus on actually building the business, more than trying to do all the work yourself. He also talks about how he got into his niche and what one thing would he do differently if he can start his business all over again.

[29:31 – 35:09] The FOCUS FIVE Segment

The FOCUS FIVE are five questions I ask every guest on my show. Keep on listening to find out what book Josh gifts most often; who would he talk to if he can get an hour of any person living or dead, from the past or the present, and why; that one thing he believes but most people will disagree with; his morning routine; and lastly, where are the best places we can connect with him online.
