She is an amazing and influential impact on the Accounting industry
I’ve finally had the opportunity read Amy’s book after seeing her present multiple times. She is an amazing and influential impact on the Accounting industry. Defining the difference between a traditional CPA and what it truly means to be a modern, true advisor.
Clear, concise, easy to read and implement! I already know who I will pass it on to help! This book will help a lot of people whether they are just starting out in their careers or need quick inspiration in the middle of them.
I found this book to be such a practical guide ...
I found this book to be such a practical guide to building a modern accounting practice. What I really appreciated was that the author used real examples from other practitioners throughout the book, as I have always learned more through the experiences of my peers than just reading an academic or theoretical book.
thank you for writing this amazing and insightful book
WOW! Amy, thank you for writing this amazing and insightful book. Each page contained sage advice I was able to relate to and pull instant wisdom from. I read cover to cover during a Sunday morning and I am so glad I did.
*The* guide to running a successful cloud accounting practice
A "must read" for accounting firm owners of all stripes. Whether you're running a traditional practice and looking to modernize or your firm is already cloud-based, this is *the* authoritative guide on operations and growth. Amy combines actionable insight from her own experience with anecdotes and interviews from successful firm owners throughout the country. I don't normally like to read business books while on vacation, but this I couldn't put down. Can't wait to put her ideas o practice. Highly recommend.
Great and inspiring read!
LAUREN OR LYNN O'HALLORAN
Amy Vetter's book Business, Balance, and Bliss is absolutely fantastic. I saw her speak at my yoga studio in SF and was so inspired by the message of this book. Amy breaks down how to go about getting balance and bliss out of your life while still using your professional skills and experience. Her perspective truly changed mine and inspired me to go about beginning a plan to reshape my career and life, and with the teachings in this book, I feel much better equipped to make my dreams a reality.

It speaks about the transformation that is occurring in the accounting industry and lays out a roadmap to follow to become your clients' cherished advisor. I found the case studies really fun to read. I especially like the various checklists and other resources that give the reader practical takeaways to use. My copy is all marked up with ideas I plan to implement or use to improve our processes in my bookkeeping business.

"One thing is certain, the future is about relationships and the human side of accounting. Amy will make you want to get out from behind your desk and out with clients or out in the business operations. This is a must read for every accountant and CPA."
Loretta Doon; CEO, CalCPA/CalCPA Education Foundation
"Technology is no longer just a business enabler--it has become the product. The CPA advisor is the specialist to fine-tune the accounting product and make it more meaningful for the client. No matter what technologies future accounting and financial professionals will have at their disposal, it is the human connection that counts, as Amy Vetter so aptly points out in her new book."
An enjoyable read and thought stimulator
Amy's book is an enjoyable read and provides a great challenge to the traditional mindset and methods of delivering services and interacting with clients and is applicable to many areas within a professional services firm.
Gail Perry, CPA; Editor-in-Chief, CPA Practice Advisor
"Today's successful accountants don't just tell you what the numbers are, they tell you what the numbers mean. Amy Vetter's career has led her through every aspect of accounting and business. She combines her talents to offer an engaging and mindful perspective on how accounting professionals can provide true and lasting value to the clients they serve."
A must-read if you feel stuck in your career or business
If you feel stuck in your career or can't quite get into your groove as an entrepreneur, this book will recharge you. I was inspired by the many life lessons Amy shared along with examples of how other business leaders developed their own sense of work-life harmony. And with stress levels at an all-time high here in the U.S., there's no better time to read this book. I for one felt my blood pressure go down by simply putting into practice a few of the useful tools and tips outlined in the book.
Very usable ideas
As a former colleague of Amy, I was always impressed with her ability to balance her extremely intense work life with her yoga practice. And now she's sharing how she's doing it but focusing on how we can develop that balance for ourselves. Really enjoying the information and being thoughtful about working through the book to get the most out of it.
STORIES OF INSPIRATION!
EMILY RABB, SUGARCREEK COUNSELING
Amy has been an inspiration to me, specifically as I was exploring transitioning from corporate America to starting my own accounting firm. Her book "Integrative Advisory Services" gave me practical advice and case studies which gave me many of the tools and confidence to start Sugarcreek Consulting. I appreciate Amy as an advocate for pursuing a healthy lifestyle and work-life harmony as finding this balance is something that is also important to me.
BECCA SHANE, CPA, CGMA, HAMILTON PLACE STRATEGIES
I am so grateful to have received 2 copies of your Integrative Advisory Services book as door prizes at the Maryland CPA Society conferences. I gave one copy to my good friend and AICPA Leadership Academy classmate who owns her own firm with her husband in Texas. I look forward to reading Business Balance Bliss over the summer.
Reading your book and having attended your talk, I am inspired to continue to look for ways to serve my client (the firm that I work for) in different ways. I think the information in your book and your sessions about acting as a trusted advisor is transferrable to solo practitioners, partners at large firms, as well as CPAs in business and industry. Integration of work and life is a theme that I feel cannot be emphasized enough and your thought leadership around this is leading us in the right direction as a profession. You also put your words to action by owning your own yoga studio and leading by example showing CPAs that we can be multi-dimensional.
Thanks for all that you do! Look forward to seeing more of your content in the future!
