Unlock Profitable Accounting Practices with Shane Lukas

By , April 5, 2023

In this episode, Shane Lukas, an expert in business finance, passionately helps accountants to achieve greater business success and profits while discovering the irony of needing external help to make his own business saleable.

Shane Lukas is an International Coach, Trainer, and inspiring keynote speaker with over 25 years of experience helping accountants around the world grow their businesses.

Through his company, AVN, Shane, and his team have helped more than 4,000 accountants double, treble, and even exponentially grow their revenue and profits.

Shane knows firsthand the toll that running a business can take on family life, having struggled with work-life balance himself. That’s why he believes accountants are uniquely positioned to help business owners improve their operations.

By teaching accountants how to run better businesses themselves, Shane empowers them to help their clients succeed as well.

Whether accountants are just starting out, in the multi-millions, or looking to exit their businesses for maximum return, Shane and his team provide the training and support needed to achieve their goals. Through his energising keynote speeches and best-selling books for business owners and accountants, Shane inspires others to take control of their businesses and achieve the success they deserve.
