How CPAs can gain and grow Business Owner Clients: An Intriguing and Empowering Strategy


The award-winning Value Acceleration Methodology is the leading process to help businesses rapidly grow value, align goals, and harvest the value from their company. Exiting not just successfully but significantly. According to State of Owner Readiness research, 80% of owners have no formal value growth or transition team, 90% have done no personal planning and nearly 50% of owners have done no planning at all. How do we as CPAs, the owners most trusted advisor by far, begin to get the owner to act for themselves and for us, so we can retain better clients for generations to come. During this webinar we will introduce the methodology that intrigues and empowers business owners to act!

Scott Snider, EPI Vice President, skilled growth specialist, nationally recognized industry leader, and lifetime entrepreneur.  Two of Snider’s biggest talents: market penetration and rapid growth strategies.  In fact, Snider launched his first business at the age of 17, which he grew exponentially, winning accounts away from larger competitive companies, and establishing notoriety in his local marketplace.  At 24, he sold to a strategic buyer (his first “exit”) and joined forces with Chris Snider’s private exit planning and M&A firm, Aspire Management, who was looking to dominate Northeast Ohio’s exit planning space.  Within one year, Scott took Aspire from an unknown startup to one of the most influential boutique advisory firms in Cleveland, citing over 13 publication pickups, a full client book, and a COI network that included every specialty from across the exit planning ecosystem.  His strategy was integrated, calculated, and educational, prompting high interest and leading prospects to the next crumb in the trail.  With their passion for business strategy and serving owners and advisors alike, Snider and Snider purchased the Exit Planning Institute (EPI), introduced the Value Acceleration Methodology, wrote an award-winning book, and effectively increased the business size by 10x.  Scott Snider knows how to educate clients, achieve market distinction, and deliver real results.
