Flipping the script on traditional accounting
Pursuit was born out of burnout. Not literally, but close to it.
Most of the accounting industry hasn’t updated its business model in more than a century. For a lot of accountants, that means weekends and hours of overtime when crunch time hits. They work like superheroes, but also like sheep — moving with the crowd, ticking boxes, filing statements and racking-up billable hours during short, manic sprints. It can be planned for, but it’s not efficient or healthy, and it definitely doesn’t make for a good work-life balance. Do you want important business advice from someone who has just finished 55 consecutive 14-hour days?
At Pursuit, that’s what we’ve decided we won’t do. Instead, we’ve decided to be sensible with who we select as clients to ensure we can perform at our peak and provide maximum impact. Do we work like superheroes? For sure. Like Sheep? No way.
It’s not necessary when you have a business model like ours — dedicated professionals working directly with clients to design and execute financial and tax plans that look past annual filing dates into upcoming months and years.
