Good Note : There is no big success… There are just a lot of little successes along the way.

Instruments of choice : If you can’t find a tool that does everything you need, then create one that does.
Joe DiChiara is an entrepreneur with a CPA license. He has worked with thousands of business owners over a 35 year career. Eager to help people succeed, it troubled him that most new businesses fail and was determined to find out why. In 2010, after reading “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace Wattles and “Law of Success” by Napoleon Hill he got his answer.
Success starts with Mindset and Intention, subjects they don’t teach in CPA school. Joe learned that this was the true culprit in business failure on top of an overly complex tax and compliance system making it nearly impossible to start a business and stay in business. His primary purpose has become teaching entrepreneurs the fundamental principles of success combined with the practical knowledge acquired as a CPA.
New business owners start out with the odds stacked against them and the solution is education and guidance. Joe provides affordable business training and guidance through www.bedrockuniversity.com. and a full range of accounting services at a fraction of what most CPA firms charge through www.bedrockbusinessbuilders.com.
