Zeb Smith, CPA

Business Advisor, Entrepreneur, Life Enthusiast, Adventurer.

Hello! Thank you for vising my site. Here’s a little about me.

I love working with entrepreneurs just like you! Years ago I obtained my bachelor’s in business administration from Drury University. Right out of college, I started my career in public accounting and for nearly a decade I’ve helped businesses of all types and sizes streamline operations and improve financial health.

My passion, however, is to help entrepreneurs build a business that supports their personal goals, aspirations, and dreams. From funding your next big adventure to putting your kids through college to saving for retirement; I’m here to help you run a business that supports the life you want to live.

As a licensend CPA, I’m the leading expert in understanding your financial story.

Outside of work, I’m a die hard adventurer. From weekend hikes with my fiance and newborn son, to skyline stage runs in the summer, to backcountry hunting trips in the fall; it’s these adventures that serve my purpose in life. My dream is to provide financial services to like-minded entrepreneurs so I can have the flexibility and financial ability to pursue these adventures.

I invite you to browse and learn more about how I can help you grow, maximize profits, and own a business that thrives with your limited involvement. It is my goal to provide you with the freedom to do more of what you love and ultimately make your dreams a reality. If at any point you want more information, or to discuss your business, then please connect with me.

I’m here to be your guide as we transform your business to thrive with you limited involvement and support your personal and quality of life goals.
