Shamal started his career at the age of 18 and found his footing in accounting by helping his family with bookkeeping which led him into understanding the needs of small businesses. From there he moved into public accounting at small to large firms where he started to feel something was just slightly off. The numbers all made sense but the culture was terribly wrong, and anyone who knows that environment could understand that crunching numbers while feeling crunched in a chair doesn’t exactly go together.
