Founder - Freedom Accounting System
Meet Paul Meissner
Your Freedom Accounting Mentor
Hey, I’m Paul Meissner and after quitting my day-job-of-doom as an accountant seven years ago, I’ve been building my own online “Freedom Accounting Firm” that allows me to travel the world and live a life of freedom and adventure.
With the technology available these days there’s never been a better time than right now to start an online Accounting firm to fund the exact lifestyle you deserve.
When not travelling, I work out of our office in Melbourne, Australia where myself and our growing team run the next generation of Accounting firm. I’ve also shown hundreds of people from all around the world how to do the same through speaking arrangements, networking events and webinars worldwide. Now I want to show you how to achieve this for yourself.
Founder & MD - Sequel CFO
I earned my CA at a mid tier accounting firm where I quickly realised there wasn't that much value in producing year end accounts 18 months after business owners could have acted on the information.
For the last 5 years, I have worked as a specialist CFO for SMEs offering financial mentoring, cashflow budgeting, monthly business insight reports and cloud integration. At the start of 2016, I co-founded the Virtual CFO Association and in December 2016 my company, Sequel CFO began franchising to mobilise the experienced work force of accountants in industry and bring their expertise to SMEs.
I believe that technology has opened up a huge opportunity for our industry, but without the services we overlay it with, SMEs won’t actually benefit.
I work out of our office in Melbourne and when not there, I am either watching the 2016 Western Bulldogs Premiership replay or enjoying time with my daughter.
