Traditional accounting is about looking in the rear-vision mirror and reviewing past performance. The Success Group approach is all about looking forward and anticipating the road ahead - it’s about constantly tuning and attending to the machine that will help you reach your business and life goals.
I've worked side-by-side with Success Group now in a number of their client planning sessions. To see "accountants" who have the depth of knowledge over and above the numbers, and the deep rooted passion for their clients to succeed is really great to experience and be a part of. Anyone who chooses Success Group to look after their business will not only get a highly capable accountant, but someone who is really invested in your business succeeding. ..
Jeremy and the team at Success Group are more than just Accountants. They are Mentors, Business Advisors and visionaries. The direction and expertise they give in our monthly meetings are absolutely invaluable and are delivered with enthusiasm, energy, humour and inspiration.....definitely not your usual stiff; wake me up when you are done Accountant! I can honestly say when it comes to having meetings with Success Group I really look forward to them – I walk away confidently knowing that the accounting/strategic planning side of my business is exceptionally good hands, with all my bases covered! I believe you will never meet a more enthusiastic accountant than Jeremy! .
"I took the gold plated option which is to sign up for 12 months and have everything taken care of. There are regular meetings so you can discuss your business with an outsider and get a perspective you can't always get yourself. Jeremy brings perspective to your business and an ordinary accountant can't do that. They try, but frankly they're useless."
