Ken Mierzwinski, CPA and Managing Partner of “Relief” Accounting & CFO Services.
I am very ambitious and passionate when it comes to managing “Relief” Accounting & CFO Services. My goal is to be the number one CPA accounting firm that provides accounting & CFO services in the Canna Space. I have over 25 years’ experience in all aspects of accounting, including financial, managerial, tax, cost, auditing and forensic. I have climbed the ladder with my work experiences. I went from bookkeeper to manager to senior manager to CFO to CPA. My motto in the professional world is to work hard, don’t give up and everything else will fall into place. I became a CFO without a college degree. I was presented an opportunity and took it without thinking twice. I worked even harder and sacrificed a lot to get my CPA license much later in life. I never thought twice about it. My most recent challenge is starting a virtual, cutting-edge CPA firm. Virtual reality is the way of the future. I feel that I’ve come full circle and I plan to use all of my experiences and know-how to provide World Class accounting and CFO services to the cannabis industry in a virtual world.
My personal life parallels my professional life in many ways. I’m very passionate and ambitious when it comes to family, health and exercise. Family always comes first, no exceptions. For health and exercise, I’ve dabbled in all areas of exercise, including running, swimming, biking, taekwondo and weight-lifting. Weight-lifting is my true passion. I went from basic routines to competitive body building. People ask me when I’m going to stop. My answer is, I’ll stop when I die. I like to think that I’m a straight shooter, no frills and no strings attached. I incorporate this approach into my business strategy, when I’m providing Cannabis Accounting & CFO Services.
