Moe Tabesh is not your typical accountant.
He's lived a life full of adventure and danger, fleeing Iran during the war, getting thrown in jail, and starting life from scratch after finally escaping to Canada.
And he did all that before the age of 21.
After years of driving a taxi in Ottawa to save money for school, Moe finally completed university and became a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA).
A few years ago he started his own accounting business, called Numetrica City. But it's no ordinary accounting business.
Just like Moe, Numetrica City does things a little differently. They go beyond your standard tax prep and bookkeeping services, offering next-level support and coaching to Ottawa entrepreneurs.
Moe also partnered with Herzing College Ottawa to support the next generation of accounting professionals.
He provides internships for our Business Management students, and continues to hire talented grads straight out of the program.
This week, we interviewed Moe to learn more about his business and background.
We talked about his partnership with Herzing, what it takes to be successful in accounting, and some great advice for overcoming adversity. Read on for the highlights.
