Kirk Phillips, aka the TheBitcoinCPA, is an entrepreneur, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a self-taught woodworker—an artist in all areas of life. He brings the same attention to detail necessary for creating finely crafted furniture into the business world. He is passionate about technology, business processes, fraud prevention, time management, learning and peace of mind. Kirk discovered Bitcoin at the end of 2013 when a friend asked for advice, saying, "My husband and I want to invest $800 in a computer to mine bitcoin and make some money. What do you think?" to which he responded, "I don't know anything about Bitcoin, I'll have to get back to you." This simple inquiry led him down the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole, an experience described by many Bitcoiners, and ultimately gave birth to The Ultimate Bitcoin Business Guide. The Bitcoin journey has magnified Kirk’s commitment to helping business get done with greater ease and transparency at all levels. Kirk brings more than 15 years' experience working in public accounting while also working in private industry and with business owners and individuals. He has launched multiple businesses, including invizibiz.biz a virtual accounting and back office subscription service. Because of his desire for continuous learning and development (and a slightly obsessive approach to everything that interests him), Kirk became DCC Certified with the Digital Currency Council and also earned the Certified Bitcoin Professional (CBP) designation issued by C4, the Crypto Currency Certification Consortium. He earned a Certificate of Completion from the University of Nicosia, Introduction to Digital Currencies MOOC Course. He has also authored several articles about Bitcoin. Kirk holds additional designations as a Certified in Financial Management (CFM) Certified Management Accountant, CMA Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and a Charted Global Management Accountant (CGMA).
