More About Me
Hello, it's great to meet you! My name is Ben Mueller, welcome to my accounting consulting website. But, before we get to that, here's a bit more about who I am outside of the luxurious world of accounting.
So I don't get too long winded, I grew up in West St. Paul, MN, lived in Denver, CO for 22 years where I met my wife and started a family, and in 2021, we took on an adventure and moved down to a beach town in SW FL where we fell in love with a much more laid back life!
Being a husband and father takes up the majority of my time outside of work, but I am blessed enough to coach football at the local high school in town. Obviously fishing, water sports, golf, and beach time are my other ways to have a blast!
I have learned, after many years of doing it the wrong way, that what I do for a living, is not who I am. It took me a long time to grasp that, but once I did, I became that much more of a consultant because I had been able to achieve balance in my life by putting family first, and allowing my work to become something I really enjoy, instead of a job.
This way of life has not only made me better in the most important areas of my life, but ultimately translates to even more value for my clients.
One last thing, you may be wondering why my business is named "Blue Collar CFO". This is to pay homage to my father who was a true blue collar man. Being a farmer and then as a small engine mechanic, he always rolled up his sleeves and got the job done. As an accountant, I adopted this style...nothing is beneath me and the key to creating quality work is doing what is necessary to ensure the information is correct and useful!
