Fair Warning: The Price Will Never Be This Low Again

Although Nick and his team have helped 1,000+ accounting firm owners at TOA Global since 2013, this is the first formal cohort of Topfirm Growth Academy. And the introductory price reflects this. As we add more Playbooks to our already comprehensive resource library, and document Case Studies of recent results, the investment to become a member will rise (quite significantly). We don’t apologize for this. And confidently believe the value you receive is worth many multiples to your firm.

So, if you’re ready to put in the work and accelerate your growth, we invite you to apply now.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many Playbooks are in the resource library?

There are hundreds. But that’s the wrong question. I mean, what do you want: Lots of resources that take hours to choose from OR the right resources (that are getting results for other members right now) that you can find and implement quickly and easily?

What if I’m already a member in another coaching group?

Great. Then you already know the value of coaching. But let me ask you: Are you getting the results you want? Does your current group give you the total system of proven tools and playbooks with world-class trainers, coaching and peer community, to help you take control of your growth journey and build a firm you’re proud to lead? And do they push you to get you the results you want? Come on now. You’re an accountant. You know numbers. If you’re not getting an exciting ROI, maybe it’s time to join a community that gives you everything you need and guarantees the results.

How often will I meet with my Personal Growth Coach?

Dedicated coaching sessions are held monthly. Why? Because coaching isn’t the objective – it’s the means to reach the objective (growth). What’s the use of coaching, coaching, coaching if you never have time to implement anything? Remember, you also have access to weekly training sessions with industry experts and high-performing owners. So when you have questions, you can get answers fast.

How do I know my Personal Growth Coach is giving me the right advice?

Our coaches have years of experience growing accounting firms of their own and helping other accountants accelerate their growth. Plus, they follow our own proven process (developed by the founder, Nick Sinclair, who took TOA Global from one employee to a $100M company). Collectively, we have the inside scoop on what’s working right now in high-performing accounting firms all over the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand. Above all that, your results are guaranteed (i.e. if you don’t get a positive ROI in 90 days, you’ll get a full refund of your membership fees).

Can my team access the training and resource library?

Yes, of course. In fact, we recommend it. The only way for you to move from technician to operator, to owner is to leverage an effective team. You coach will show you the best ways to do this (both with your current team and through recruiting new onsite and outsourced team members).

What if I can’t attend training sessions live?

No problem. All sessions are recorded and available in our resource library for you and your team to watch when you’re ready (and as many times as you want).

Can’t you just do it for me?

Yes, but then it would be our business not yours. If you want the rewards, you have to do the work. But not by yourself. Your Personal Growth Coach will guide you (and your team) every step of the way. You’ll have unlimited access to all the proven Playbooks and Processes you need. And a community of ambitious peers will share “what’s working for them” so you can model their success. While you must take ownership of your growth, we’ll help you build an effective team to scale and supplement your skills, so you can finally move from technician, to operator, to the owner who reaps the financial and lifestyle rewards you’ve always wanted.

Not another coaching program! How is this different?

No, thank goodness. Most coaching programs will help you plan. Or they will tell you what to do. Or perhaps they’ll act as a sounding board along the way. Only Topfirm provides a total growth system that combines everything you need to take control of your growth journey and build a firm you’re proud to lead including:

Planning: Your own personal growth plan for clarity and direction
Resources: Proven tools and practical playbooks for fast implementation
Support: World-class coaching and peer community for measurable results

Many programs are led by founders who have stepped away from their firms. That’s fine of course. Our advantage? A decade of intimate experience in guiding 1000+ firms to overcome their biggest talent, process and growth challenges. And during that time, we scaled our own business to $100M. So it’s fair to say we know a thing or two serious, real-world growth.

What results can I expect?

Many firms experience double digit growth. Some do even better. Either way, your positive ROI is guaranteed. If you don’t make 5x more than the cost of the program in the first 90 days (provided you implement your Personal Growth Plan), you get a full refund.

How are these results achieved?

Topfirm programs provide the planning, resources, and support to help you:

  • Attract the right clients
  • Build an effective team
  • Implement proven systems…

…that empower your firm to grow smoothly and predictably.

How much time will I need to invest?

That is entirely up to you. This program provides the ultimate leverage. But it doesn’t do the work for you. The more you put in, the better your results will be.

Rest assured, dozens of firm owners just like you are comfortably working through the program. Our goal is to help you focus on the most important priorities – NOT snow you under in busy work.

That said, we love do-ers. We’re committed to helping firm owners achieve transformative results. And if you’re already worried committing to doing the work, our programs might not be a good fit right now.

What’s the guarantee?

Your positive ROI is guaranteed. If you don’t make get at least 100% return on the cost of the program after 12 months, you’ll get a full refund. It’s that simple. Because we are 100% committed to providing the proven plan, practical resources, and expert support so you get measurable results.
