Show Summary

This week we talked with Joe Woodard, who shares insights into the “rise of the machines” and the impact it will have on the accounting space. Discover the impact that artificial intelligence will have on the accounting space, how accounting as we know it will vanish, and the massive opportunity for accountants and bookkeepers who take action now. Joe explains that with change comes both opportunity and fear. The fearful response will be to fight the change and try to continue doing what has worked in the past (it won’t work now). The opportunistic response is to “get ahead of the computers” and offer services that compliment the change. Welcome to Episode 58 of Grow My Accounting Practice!
