Kirk Phillips, aka the TheBitcoinCPA, is an entrepreneur, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a self-taught woodworker therefore an artist of sorts in all areas of life. He brings the same attention to detail necessary for creating finely crafted furniturre into the business world. He is fanatical about technology, business processes, fraud prevention, time management, learning and peace of mind. When Kirk discovered Bitcoin at the end of 2013 it magnified and extended his passions leading him down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole, an experience described by many Bitcoiners. A friend of his asked for advice saying, "Kirk, my husand and I want to invest $800 in a computer to mine bitcoin and make some money. What do you think?" to which he responded, "I don't know anything about Bitcoin, I'll have to get back to you." This simple question was the birth of The Ultimate Bitcoin Business Guide.
He brings more than 15 years' experience working with business owner individuals in public accounting and private industry while launching multiple businesses including invizibiz.biz, a virtual accounting and back office subscription service. Kirk believes the gift of Bitcoin will completely change the business model for everything and the way business gets done in the coming decades as it disrupts, decentralizes and brings much needed transparancy into the business world.
