  • The best investment I ever made in turning my practice away from tax prep.  Dawn provided all the tools, laser-focused education, real-world case studies, support & encouragement – everything you need to start increasing your client’s profits by 50% in four weeks, even conversation starters and leading questions.

    BA Jones
  • To be empowered as a Pro-Advisor, there is no better training, hands down, than Woodard Institute.

  • I signed up for the course, mainly because I met Joe at Connect 2014 and had a very good discussion on training and the direction of firms in the future. After taking the Gateway Course, I feel it makes you look at yourself, your firm, and your associates to determine just what you see for the future of your firm. It further forces you to decide what direction you want to take your firm. This could be to the next level, or remain doing what you are. Either way you will feel more confident with your decision, which if nothing else should let you sleep better at night. I can't wait for the next course to begin.

  • What I love about being in Woodard Network is the camaraderie with other like-minded people. Even though I am alone in my office, I have a network worldwide I can count on. The sharing and caring of the people is beyond measure. Not only are these people accounting colleagues - they are my closest friends.

  • Attending Scaling New Heights actually changed my life. The knowledge I gained from the sessions and interacting with my peers allowed me to have the confidence to start my own consulting business. I have met so many interesting people and learned skills that translate to more productivity and efficiency as a result of the sessions I have attended and the knowledge that others have shared with me. Probably the best part of meeting new people is the widening circle of friends and advisors that I now have.

  • I didn't know how much I didn't know!

    Susan Pruskin
  • This class was what I needed to gain a better understanding of what my clients are perceiving as my job vs. their job.  I think clients sometimes believe that we are analyzing their products and services when we are looking at data after the fact.

  • The annual Scaling New Heights conference is essential to expanding our knowledge of QuickBooks, assessing third party add-on products available, planning and implementing our Practice and Leadership Development, and preparing for certifications. The conference has compelled us to research and adopt advanced technologies and improved our accounting methods. The education, training and products we have integrated from the Scaling New Heights conferences allow us to offer higher level, mid-market accounting services. Our (22) employees now lobby to attend this conference each year!

  • I have been to a couple of Woodard events for QuickBooks. I am advanced certified in both QB desktop and QB Online and have used QuickBooks for over 10 years. You can never know everything. I always learn something new at these events that I can take back and share with my firm.

    Anita Camara
  • Since I got back from the course, I've been so much happier on the job.  I didn't realize how many little things there were that weren't working well for me - especially in QuickBooks online and I would just put up with them instead of trying to figure out a more efficient way of handling things.   I was always focusing on the client deadline and the pressure and not looking at the process.  I'm so very very glad I came to the boot camp.

  • Dawn Fotopulos provides a simple, easy to follow method of analyzing financial statements that can very quickly produce more profits for our clients.  I used her method of explaining financial statements as explained in Accounting for the Numberphobic with one of my clients whose eyes would glaze over when I talked numbers.  All of a sudden his eyes lit up and he “got it!”  It changed his outlook, and he was able to see how small changes produce big results!  I highly recommend “Increasing Profits 50% in Four Weeks” to all serious ProAdvisors.

  • Woodard Boot Camps are chock full of valuable knowledge & information!  Just what is needed to advance my firm to the next level!
