How Breakaway BA does things just a little bit differently

Randy sits down with Martin Moll, co-founder of Breakaway BA, to discuss his philosophy of life, and what led him away from serving as a managing partner of a large CPA firm, to starting a company that specializes in back office services for small and medium sized businesses. Martin talks about a formative experience that solidified his passion for what America is really comprised of—the integral parts of our society—and how Breakaway remains committed to bringing joy in everything they do.
