About Nagel CPAs

Our Vision
We hope you've found what you're looking for in a CPA firm. Just to share a little bit more, here's our vision:

"Helping people achieve their unique vision through accounting, accountability and sound stewardship."

Every person, every family, every business has a unique vision, a specific purpose for who they are and what they do. If you've read the content of this website, you've seen the specifics of the vision of our firm. More than a goal or goals of a mission, your vision is truly special and unique. It's not always easy determining what that might be for you or your family or your business, but we can help by getting to know you and your unique gifts and talents.

You can manage what you can measure. That's the core principal behind the art and science of accounting. We know that you want to measure what you must manage in order to achieve your vision. That's what we do and we can help you measure what is uniquely yours to manage.

But, managing without accountability is merely repetitive motion. We believe that setting goals and measuring performance against those goals, uniquely part of your specific vision, is mission critical. We do that for our firm...we can do that for you, too.

Moving from success to significance starts with attitude. Any one of us may be able to measure and manage, but if we can't acknowledge why we do what we do, then it's unlikely that we will achieve our vision. It all starts with our attitude of sound stewardship: managing God-given resources, for God-given purposes.

There is nothing more important to us than helping you do that. We hope you give us that chance.
