Houston, Texas: Carolyne Fox and her firm, Mir, Fox, Rodriguez, came to our attention through the CEO of the first PBS station in the USA, KUHT-TV. When we looked further, we found awards, citations, and innovations. To be selected as the study for an episode, a business must come up on everyone's list as being "...loved by their community and respected within their industry."
These people were all of that and more.
In this episode of the show, we continue our walk down the Main Streets of America to see how people with a vision and with excellence can be successful in their field.
Their most important product here is their public accounting know-how, yet this is also a very important story here about turning adversity into greatness.
Most CPAs do not think of themselves as entrepreneurs. They see themselves as players on the team of companies headed by entrepreneurs. Carolyne Fox admits that she would still work in a big, world-famous CPA firm if she had not been forced to leave by a merger.
