Greg Kyte, CPA is this year’s Emcee at Thriveal’s Deeper Weekend conference. We wanted you to get to know Greg before you come enjoy him at the conference. Greg was born in Akron, Ohio, in the shadow of the Firestone tire factory. He began swimming competitively when he was eight for the Mountlake Terrace Lemmings, and he graduated in 1995 from the University of Washington with a math degree. (He chose math for the ladies.)

 

After serving ten-years as an 8th grade math teacher, he decided it was time for a career change mainly because, in his words, he “couldn’t stand those little bastards.” He began his accounting career with a local CPA firm in Orem, Utah, where he consistently failed the QuickBooks ProAdvisor advanced certification test.

Downtown Greenville, SC is known as a creative place with hip shops, great places to enjoy nature, and wonderful restaurants and creative venues to host a conference like Deeper Weekend. We want our attendees to experience all that Greenville, SC has to offer! So we are intentional to pick a few key venue locations for our conference. This year we’ll be at the Peace Center’s Hugenot Mill, Zen Greenville, and Barley’s Taproom.

 

Creative venues take the attendee out of their normal pace of life and set them in places that inspire and encourage different thinking. And that’s what we’re going for at our conference – deeper thinking. Deeper thinking can be enhanced by the intentional surroundings that we place the attendees in while at the conference. Creative spaces for the Deeper Weekend attendees tend to disrupt them out of their normal mode of thinking. This encourages new thought, ‘ah ha’ moments, and the ability to think in different ways.

One of the best books I’ve seen that helps entrepreneurs get their vision down on paper is Gino Wickman’s book, Traction. That’s why I’ll be teaching some concepts from the book to scale and grow your firm at this year’s Deeper Weekend conference (watch this video to get a $250 early bird discount to the conference on Oct 25 to 27.)

 

In Traction, Wickman says “Entrepreneurs must get their vision out of their heads, and down onto paper.” This is one of the most enlightening concepts in business today. The concept of establishing a vision can be daunting at first because it has lived cluttered in the entrepreneur’s head for so long. It can be hard to write down, but extraction of a vision is necessary if you want to build an organization larger than yourself. According to Wickman, the first step in getting the entrepreneur’s vision down onto paper is to write out the Core Values of the business. But before we get to the steps of writing out your core values, let’s look at some principles supporting the importance of your core values.

We have a leadership team in Thriveal now. This means we are able to make our visions much larger, because smarter people are attempting to pull them off. Have you ever wondered what we do at Thriveal? Here it is…

TJG_7616At Thriveal, we don’t take our partnerships lightly. We work hard to be valuable to our sponsors, and they expect the same thing from us.
Like other accounting community conferences, our annual Deeper Weekend conference is made possible by the awesome sponsors in our community. I want to take a moment to publicly thank them, give them some love, and let you know why we wanted them as sponsors (we won’t partner with just anyone). Here is the line up of our sponsors that made our event so special:
