PODCAST: The Accountant That Builds - A Small Business and Finance Podcast

Welcome to The Accountant That Builds, a business and finance podcast focused on providing actionable advice to empower individuals and business owners to build lives and businesses they really love.

When host Shannon Smit decided to start her own accounting and business advisory firm, she had a vision from the beginning. With a career spanning global firms in New York, Prague, Amsterdam and Melbourne, Shannon chose to forgo a partner position at a Big 4 firm in New York, in favour of setting up a globally minded, local approach firm offering strategic tax, business and financial advisory in her local region, Mornington Peninsula. She wanted to give local business owners access an advisor with extensive global expertise, without having to travel to the city.

17 years on, and she’s got stories to tell about business and wealth building! Are you ready to build your business and your wealth? Tune into the episodes of The Accountant That Builds - A Small Business and Finance Podcast.
