Graduate Spotlight: Adam Syvock

Adam SyvockAdam Syvock had been making plans to begin his own accounting practice when his position as an accountant for a pet products manufacturer was eliminated with a company-wide reduction. Taking the job loss as a sign to move forward with his goals, Adam decided it was time to beef up his knowledge of small business accounting.

Having already earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting from UW-Milwaukee, he had a pretty firm grasp of corporate accountant functions, but Universal Accounting (UA) gave Adam a strong foundation in business fundamentals and how he could use that knowledge in small-business applications. UA also gave him the confidence to speak with potential clients about his business.

Adam already had the knowledge and skills to do the job of a great accountant, but he didn’t know how to convey his expertise or value to small business owners. The master coaching program really changed the game by solidifying his accounting foundation, so he could enjoy far more confidence in debit and credits, as well as communication.

After enrolling in the master coaching program, Adam learned how to market his new business more effectively, opened up his own office, and became the president of his local BNI chapter. His private practice has enjoyed steady growth and is now heading into its second year.

Prior to enrollment at UA, Adam’s vision of having his own accounting business was just a dream, and he didn’t know whether or not he would find success. Since graduation, he no longer questions his future, because he’s building it right now. His questions now revolve around how big he wants his business to grow!

Are you considering enrollment with UA? Adam says that it takes a great deal of dedication and passion, but for those who possess such qualities and are willing to put in the hard work, there is an enormous potential to succeed!
