Rumbi is the social butterfly between her many networks

Whether it's singing karaoke in front of thousands in Berlin, running the New York City Marathon or being a part of the New York African Film Festival, Rumbi is making connections.

I talk with Rumbi about how important developing relationships is for someone who started her own forensics accounting firm. Which is pretty impressive considering she admits to becoming an accountant "on accident".

Rumbi graduated from Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts with a degree in Economics and Mathematics before going to study accounting at the University of South Africa. She worked for Big Four and industry before starting her own firm, Rock Financial Forensics in New York City.

She's also the editor of Figuring Financial Forensics where she discusses news and her views of the world of financial forensics.

Stuart Hack recently stepped on stage at the Improv Comedy Club and was big hit with his clients.

In this episode, we talk about how Stuart’s radio host days and stand-up comedy hobby have allowed him to be much better at networking to generate more business for his Firm. He spent many years working for accounting firms before taking a leap of faith to start his own practice, Hack Tax and Accounting Services.

 

Stuart has a Bachelors in Mathematics and a Masters in Accounting, both from the State University of New York at Albany. He’s got over 27 years of experience providing individuals and small businesses with tax and accounting needs.
