my business partner bradford battenBradford Batten of My Business Partner is up for our second installment of getting to know our networking partners!

Bradford is a partner in My Business Partner which carries the slogan, “accounting for what matters.” I had the opportunity to sit down with Bradford on a few occasions prior to him taking part in our series of 5 questions.

Here is a snippet from the My Business Partner website that describes the business;

“My Business Partner works with a variety of clients across a broad spectrum of industries and business types. Each industry is different and that requires our bookkeepers to have an intricate knowledge of a lot of different areas. Education is a key component of what we do, and we enjoy understanding the intricacies of how our client’s businesses work. Armed with that knowledge, we can address their specific bookkeeping and payroll needs—making suggestions where warranted.”
Bradford is a family man first. In fact, he is a partner in My Business Partner with the founder, his mother, Sharon Batten. Bradford and Sharon, along with their team, seek to help the small businesses of Clark, County achieve their goals. Bradford also enjoys helping children and doing so through the sport of Rugby.

4. Do you have a favorite quote and what is it?

Response: “I often say rugby’s like life.

You can have the ball in your hand and be running down the field feeling unstoppable. Then someone tackles you and you hit the deck and you’re vulnerable; you’re lying there exposed. Suddenly your teammates are there, not just over the ball but over you, protecting you. They’re prepared to put their bodies on the line for you.

That’s what happens in life: you fall over and your mates come to your aid.”

– Sir John Kirwan (rugby union coach).


5. What barriers did you have to overcome when starting your current business or profession?

Response:  Moving from sales, I had to learn an entirely new profession.
