Amy disconnects to better connect with clients and coworkers
Amy Vetter has wanted to be a CPA since she was a little girl, to follow in the footsteps of her grandfather. At the age of 12, she was even doing the books for her mother’s cleaning service! In high school and college, she discovered explored her artistic side by painting and playing the violin and viola, but the steady nature of an accounting job won out in the end. More recently, after achieving success in the business world, she realized she needed to be more mindful and took up yoga. She describes it as being transformational, so she became a yoga instructor and opened her own yoga studio.
In this episode, Amy and I talk about how she was able to use her yoga to pivot into a new career on the technology side. It’s allowed her to take time away from work to be alone with her mind and to remember to breathe. This is something that she has built into her weekly routine because she says, “We’re better at work and at home if we intentionally make time for our passions.”
Amy Vetter is Chief Relationship Officer – Partner Channel for Xero Americas. She’s also the author of the book Business, Balance, & Bliss: How the B3 Method Can Transform Your Career and Life, a TEDx speaker, and the contributor to many publications such as Inc.com, Entrepreneur.com, CPA Practice Advisor and Accounting Today.
She received her BBA, Accounting from the University of Cincinnati. She later went to Nova Southeastern University for her MBA, Business.
