About the guest:

Cindy McGhee, CPA is the founder and managing director of NextGen Tax Services PLLC and Upgrade U.

An enthusiastic tax strategist who is passionate about saving her clients time and money, Cindy has more than 15 years of experience working for Fortune 500 companies in the oil & gas, health care, retail, and service industries. After years working for large CPA firms with ultra-wealthy clientele, Cindy recognized a gap in tax services available to small- and medium-sized businesses.

She started her own firm to provide these companies financially attainable solutions to reduce their tax burden. Today her clients range from successful, long-standing companies to start-ups and individuals with side hustles.

Cindy’s new project, Upgrade U, is a consulting agency that provides education and resources needed to help upgrade your business. Upgrade U is designed to teach you how to get to the next level. It is set to empower women to bust through glass ceilings. Chasing millionaire dreams requires you to think and move differently which Upgrade U provides you with practical tools you will need to be successful.

“My favorite part of my job is working with business owners and seeing them have that ‘aha’ moment when we show them small changes that often have a big impact on their bottom line,” Cindy says.

Originally from Springfield, Missouri, Cindy is the youngest of six children. She, her husband and their two kids have called Tulsa home for over 12 years. Cindy is a passionate supporter of youth and education programs.
