Become a lifestyle accountant

Want to learn how to work less, live more, and finally enjoy your accountant lifestyle?


You’ve worked hard to get your accounting degree (and maybe even your CPA license). 

You earn a cushy salary and have nice office perks: like free coffee and unlimited post-it notes.

You can even afford to add guac to your Chipotle order!

But there’s just one little problem:

You feel stuck in your accounting career.

What you really want is more freedom instead of more money.

More time to spend on your passions outside of your career.

And more than a lousy two week (aka, too weak) vacation a year to fit it in.

You want to have an accountant lifestyle you enjoy.

But, your workplace is still very traditional and slow to change.

Your employer doesn't understand new technology or what employees really want.

And while working 9-5 in a cubicle isn’t the worst thing in the world?

You’d rather be out creating new experiences, making new connections, and exploring new projects.

Not just updating Excel macros, watching the clock, and waiting for Friday to come.

Sound good?

Ok, cool.

I'd like to formally introduce you to:

The place for accountants who feel stuck in their accounting career and want to work less and live more. It’s for accountants who want to break free from the 9-5 and cubicle walls that have been keeping them from living the life they desire. It’s for accountants who want to change the world, but first have to change themselves. It’s for accountants who don’t subscribe to the attitude “because that’s the way it’s always been done.”

Because you know there’s a better way of doing things.

Except you don’t know where to start.

And that’s where I come in. 

I created Lifestyle Accountant because I know accountants don’t like taking risks—so I did. I know accountants don’t like to ruffle feathers—so I did. I know accountants don’t always know when to say “no” —so I did. I know accountants probably don’t know how to do any of this stuff—and I do. 

My mission in life: helping accountants to WORK LESS and LIVE MORE. I help accountants like you: 

✓ Find alternatives to traditional employment so you can work on your own terms

✓ Learn the technology and tools needed to work anywhere in the world

✓ Understand why taking more than a two week vacation can reignite your career

✓ And most importantly, learn how to align your accounting career around your ideal lifestyle, not the other way around.

The Bottom line:

I’ll help you design your new accounting career path - one you won’t want to retire from. That way you can get back to pursuing your other passions, like exploring the world or spending more time with loved ones. And you'll finally enjoy that thing called your lifestyle.

and P.S. - you can still afford that side of guac!

Hey there! I'm Jeff Maddux, CPA

During the first week of working my full-time office job out of college, I knew I wasn't going to make it in that environment 40+ years until retirement with only two weeks of vacation every year.

It was that very first week I decided to start planning my escape from the rat race.

I'd research everything about saving, investing and reaching financial independence in my free time.

Two and a half years later, I saved enough money to quit my job (without another one lined up) and take my first mini-retirement - starting my adventure in Thailand.

Since then, I've taken four more mini-retirements. It has become a way of life for me.

I'm now on a mission to help accountants work less and live more.

I welcome you to join my community that I've spent years developing through hundreds of hours of research - and by living it!
