In this episode, Jon Maki connects his skills as a surfer to his skills as a business owner and accountant and shares a couple of prominent beaches that he has surfed.

He grew up bodyboarding but didn't get into surfing until 15 years ago. Now he says it gives him energy to make it through the work week -- and it helps him relate to some of his clients. Just like Jon starting his accounting business, surfers need to know their equipment, know their limits and eventually have to "go for it."

Jon is the president at MFI Works. His team helps micro-business owners get a grip on their finances and smart about IRS matters.
