About Us

We don't offer the traditional services you'll find at most CPA firms because, for our clients, they aren't quite enough. What you'll find instead are services to help you get visibility into your finances now, clarity on your financial goals and plans, and help you keep more of what you earn.

When you hire our team, you can expect a more personalized, premium experience because we work with fewer clients. We'll be your partner for all things finance, will get all up in your business (in a good way), and will help you keep an eye on your finances to help you stay out of trouble.

Our mission is to help you level up your business so you can find financial peace without burning yourself out.

About Young + Co

Young + Co was founded in 2018 after a not-so-great personal tax experience. We thought to ourselves "We could do this better!"


We realize how hard it is to find someone to help you connect the dots between your financials, taxes, and big picture strategy. To help you understand how your business is doing now and think through how to improve in the future.

So that's exactly what we do here at Young + Co.
