From accounting to child care: bringing professional expertise to business ownership in a new industry

If you had told Steve Ahrens 20 years ago that his future was in child care, he probably wouldn’t have believed you. After having spent ten years as a CPA, Steve was right in the middle of a successful career as a corporate chief financial officer. But somewhere along the way something changed, or rather, something clicked. Steve analyzed the opportunities, took a leap into a new industry as a franchise business owner, and never looked back.

“My knowledge in accounting gave me the background I needed to evaluate franchise opportunities from a business model perspective." he said. "It also comes in handy for the record-keeping and accounting for the business. In business ownership professional skills always translate somehow, regardless of industry.”

There were some pleasant surprises in store for Steve as the owner of a child care business.

“Accounting is traditionally a profession for introverts, because you really don’t talk to people all day long. I was really surprised to see how much I enjoy talking to parents and building relationships as a business owner.”
