The E-CPA Show, hosted by the Entrepreneurial CPA, Garrett Wagner, touches on and provides insights to firm and industry leaders on how to build and embody a proactive mindset, and stay up to date on the skills and trends that are needed to run a true firm of the future. As the accounting landscape and accounting profession changes to catch up with other industries and trends, accountants cannot afford to remain stagnant. The show focuses on key points that can help leaders and managers become more entrepreneurial-minded, embrace change, and update the way they approach the accounting profession by investing in themselves.

Of all of the shows on Evolve Now’s platform, The Entrepreneurial CPA Show is the original flagship series, as it began in 2018 as part of The Entrepreneurial CPA Channel, and set the foundation for the future of accounting content, and serves as the front for the Entrepreneurial CPA coaching program, run by Garrett himself. Those ready to solidify their place in the future of the profession are encouraged to check out the series, take the E-CPA Assessment, and consider signing up to be coached through the program.
