Marc Hendrikson and his wife adopted their first daughter from Guatemala. Since then, they’ve adopted three more children and fostered countless others. This provided a fresh perspective on things because when he would come home after work, suddenly all of his stresses paled in comparison to their needs.
In this episode, Marc and I talk about how he has never really conformed to the stereotypical accountant model, from getting his college degree when he was a little older to being an open book with his coworkers and clients. He found that the more he shared with clients, the more he cared about them personally. And he saw that “clients who are focused on more things than just making money are more successful because they’re well-rounded people.”
