Episode 24 is a CPA Life Rewind, where we look back on a topic relevant to the accounting world right now. Today, having just gotten through another fall busy season, we feature John Randolph’s conversation with John Mark Prewitt, Managing Member at Cohesion Companies, which he founded over a decade ago. John Mark’s experience in the Big Four led him to choosing a radically different approach to running his own firm, with a strong focus on work-life balance and low employee turnover, thanks to Cohesion’s flat fee model, focus on client service, and emphasis on communication and growth opportunities for employees. As a result, Cohesion was recognized by Accounting Today as a top firm to work for in 2022. This Rewind episode is chock full of insights on how your firm can do the same!
