How Profit First Shaped This Father-Daughter CPA Firm with Byron McBroom & Melanie Sikma

On the Profit First for REI podcast, we hear from many investors and other business owners about their first-hand success at applying the Profit First method. While there is no better person to relay its benefits than the entrepreneurs who have used it for their businesses, someone else is just as close to your finances as you are—your accountant. 

Today we’ve got Measured Results CPA joining us for the show, namely its Founder, Byron McBroom, and Business Development Consultant, Melanie Sikma. They have been hard at work helping business owners plan their taxes through Measured Results and manage wealth through Abundant Life, where Melanie serves as the CEO.

Stay tuned as this father-daughter tandem gives us a new perspective on why Profit First is the biggest boon for managing your finances!

[10:34] “The real beauty of Profit First is it forces [you] to address the problem early. It does not wait till the business is struggling to stay in business.”
[13:18] “My job is to sit and create questions for people to ask, so we get the answers we need to…have them pay as little tax as legally possible, and stay out of trouble.”
[22:05] “We say we don't speak accountant, as we speak English and [put] it in simple terms. That's something that we try we strive for, actually.”
