Josh Bauerle is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and the founder of CPA On Fire, a tax and accounting practice specializing in working with online business owners.

Josh's first title, the Accounting QuickStart Guide serves as the most comprehensive and accessible guide to accounting for students, business owners and finance professionals ever published.

While leaning on his ten-plus years as an accountant, Josh expertly simplifies complex and often misunderstood accounting topics in a fun and engaging manner. Lauded as one of the most practical and easy to follow accounting book for students and business owners, the Accounting QuickStart Guide has demystified the key concepts in financial and managerial accounting for thousands of people across the world.

Over the course of his ten-plus years in the industry, Josh has experienced a wide range of roles in the accounting world: cost accountant at a Fortune 500 company, auditor and tax preparer at a public accounting firm, financial advisor and, finally, owner of his own firm. This experience has allowed him to see firsthand the importance of proper accounting at all levels of business, from the billion-dollar companies to the guy starting an Amazon store from his basement.

Since founding CPA On Fire in 2012, Josh has become a sought-after expert in the accounting and tax industry, appearing on some of the largest business podcasts in the country and on national TV shows.

Josh lives in Willard, Ohio, with his wife Courtney, twin boys Jacob and Eli, and daughter Mollie. When he’s not helping business owners with accounting, he is coaching the Willard Lady Flashes tennis team, which just completed the school’s first-ever undefeated regular season and SBC Championship.
