Phillip Aronoff on Entrepreneurs of ReInvention


Phillip Aronoff has been doing bookkeeping and accounting since he was 17 years old. 

“I have 39 years of experience under my belt (for those of you trying to do the math, that makes me 56 years young). I started right out of high school working for my mother’s bookkeeping business which she still runs very successfully today.  After moving to Colorado in 1997, I decided it was time to start my own business. My first daughter was 3 years old at the time and I knew that being my own boss was the best way to have a successful business and still be able to be present as a dad and a husband.  23 years later, my oldest daughter is 26, my younger daughter is 18, and By the Numbers bookkeeping and accounting has given me every opportunity to be involved in their lives and watch them grow up into wonderful women. Being a business owner has also given me the freedom to pursue two long time passions of mine: networking and volunteering.”

How did you reinvent yourself this year?

When I realized I would not be able to network in the same ways I found new ways to meet people.  I was able to meet people from all over the US and even someone in the UK.  It has broadened my network and my sphere of influence.  I did things that made me uncomfortable.  I did Facebook Lives.  I did live interviews on Instagram that has now turned into a weekly interview on Fridays.
