We had the good fortune of connecting with Corey G. Patterson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Corey G., what role has risk played in your life or career?
Life to me can be described as a journey of risks, and throughout that journey we try to find ways to hedge our exposure to those risks. Through conversations with mentors and through my own personal experiences I learned that if you can directly influence the outcome of a risk and the risk also has the potential to yield the results you need to fulfill your vision, than that is ALWAYS a risk worth accepting!! In short don’t be afraid to embrace risks that you directly impact the results of as well as a risk you need to go to the next chapter of your book of success.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
There are thousands of CPAs across the country that have a comparable skill set and body knowledge to me, however, NONE of those CPAs are as invested in the success and well being of their clients as I am. My number goal is for each one my clients to be as successful as they want to be. I try my best to leverage my skills and relationships to help each one of my clients accomplish their short and long term goals. My clients know that they are a part of a WINNING team with me and my firm!!!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Pre pandemic my city was full of life and excitement. It’s definitely slowed down tremendously, however, if I wanted to give you the best taste of the city based on my palette this is what it would look like: Sunday we would do dinner at STK with a night cap a LIV. Monday we would visit the Vizcaya Museum and the Versace Mansion. Tuesday we would play golf at the Turnberry Isle in Aventura. Wednesday we would do a helicopter tour to get a birds eye view of the city. Thursday we would go to the Homestead Speedway and drive luxury sports car around the track at top speeds. Friday we can to Monkey Jungle Island to have the unique experience of being in the same enclosure with the monkeys. Saturday you would be on a plane reminiscing about having had the experience of a lifetime. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My family and friends are the greatest contributors to where I am today, but I have to give a special shout out to my Mother. My mother is the most influential person in my life. I have had the opportunity to learn from her actions, her conversations, and the foundation she laid out for me. I don’t accomplish any of my achievements without her playing the role that she played in my life, and that’s a FACT.
