American Institute of CPAs - Personal Financial Planning (PFP)

Mar 25, 2022

Beth Gamel, CPA/PFS, has had many wonderful experiences over her 30+ year career as a CPA financial planner. Among other challenges, she was one of the first CPAs to add investment management to her offerings and she had to build her firm from the ground up. She shares her story and the lessons she learned along the way in this new podcast series hosted by Lyle Benson, CPA/PFS.  Beth discusses:

  • How she created a successful retirement transition, financially and psychologically
  • What she did to attract clients in the early days
  • What she learned through the volatile investment markets that applies to today
  • How she mentored her staff to be able to serve the complex HNW clients
  • What the AICPA PFP community has meant for her success and her friendships
