Breaking the Mold – and Thriving – with Jason Blumer

jason-blumer-cpaDo you work in a field in a field or industry that seems completely set in its ways? Where change seems impossible?

Would you like to shake things up with with new perspectives and new business models – and, of course, generate significant income while doing it?

Then you won’t want to miss this episode of the Learning Revolution.

Visit the Web site for BlumerCPAs and you will know immediately that you are not in the world of traditional accounting. Several years ago Jason Blumer started to transform the CPA firm he took over from his father into a thriving niche business with coaching and education as a key component of its strategy. Jason also founded the Thriveal Network, a membership site for forward thinking accountants, and has seen that effort, well, thrive.

I got connected with Jason through Paul Johnson from Pathwright, who I interviewed back in Episode 15. Jason uses the Pathwright platform for the high-end coaching courses he offers in both live online and on-demand versions.

In short, like most of the people I have interviewed on the show, Jason Blumer is a dyed-in-the-wool learning revolutionary who is using education to transform and grow his business. So, listen in for a mega-dose of inspiration. (And, of course, be sure to share the good word about Learning Revolution.)
