Vinnie Fisher is a businessman, entrepreneur, author, husband, and father. He has been married for almost 20 years to his wife Debbi, and together they have four children: Sophia, Vinny, Jacob, and Elizabeth.
A lawyer by trade, Vinnie practiced tax and business law for 10 years before leaving the field in 2007 to pursue entrepreneurship full-time. His first venture, Creative Learning Workshop, provides day habilitation and vocational services to adults with developmental disabilities. Vinnie sold the business in 2009, after opening nine locations in Ohio and providing many of new jobs for Ohio residents.
In 2007, Vinnie also started his first of many Internet-based businesses, an information publishing company that taught clients how to start, grow, and maintain their own successful work-from-home businesses. Vinnie sold the business in 2010, and that same year opened the first of a suite of web hosting companies: Brain Host. Over the next few years, Vinnie opened additional web hosting and website development companies, including Purely Hosting, FreeWebsite.com, All Phase Hosting, and Quick Launch Solutions.
By the summer of 2014, Vinnie had caught the entrepreneurial bug again and opened Fully Accountable, a full-service accounting firm that provides virtual CFO, bookkeeping, and accounting services for small and medium closely held businesses. What makes Fully Accountable truly unique is that their team doesn’t just prepare clients’ financial reports—they actually review and analyze their reports and send clients daily, actionable feedback on what they need to know about their business. It’s that unique selling proposition that has skyrocketed Fully Accountable’s growth in an amazingly short period of time. Vinnie currently serves as Chairman of the Board and Chief Visionary for the business.
And as if 2014 wasn’t a busy enough year already, at the end of the year Vinnie wrote his first book, The Best Investment: A Better You and opened his publishing company, A Better You Publishing.
In late 2015, Vinnie and his team launched Total CEO (www.thetotalceo.com). Vinnie is the Co-Founder and Chief Visionary of Total CEO, which is a Mastermind group filled with high-level CEOs who are dedicated to growing their business. Vinnie recently launched the Total CEO podcast where he interviews CEOs to discuss the ups and downs of running a business.
At the beginning of 2017, Fully Accountable launched ‘Your Back Office’, which is a software that is designed to change the way owners and accountants do their job. Accountants typically have many jobs they have to do for their clients and ‘Your Back Office’ is a tool that provides them with all the data and resources they need. ‘Your Back Office’ allows you to know your numbers, and manage your team! These are common requests of an accountant and this software is the solution they’ve been needing to efficiently serve their clients. At Fully Accountable, they added all of their existing clients and help owners setup, and manage ‘Your Back Office’ as part of their done for you service.
Recently, Vinnie has handed off the reigns of Fully Accountable to his long-time business parter, Chris Giorgio, who is now the CEO of the company. Vinnie has since announced his newest company Total Team, which has grown from his 17+ years of experience helping business owners and entrepreneurs hire, train and retain team members. Total Team is an organization of CULTure building experts that offer consulting, training and done-for-you services.
