about wisdom cpas
Passion. Experience. Diligence.

Our mission is to improve your bottom line and increase the profit margin for our clients.
By taking time to sit down with our clients, outline financial needs, and propose solutions, Wisdom CPAs
accountants will become your trusted business advisors.

Why We're Different
Like other accounting firms, Wisdom CPAs can take care of your payroll, bookkeeping, accounting, and taxes. However, our personalized, consultative style of traditional accounting sets us apart by helping businesses make wiser financial decisions to achieve bottom line success. Wisdom CPAs is one of a handful of firms that uses comparative financial data and metrics. This solution provides our clients a way to evaluate, in real-time, their profits, revenue generation and payroll numbers to like business peers in their industry. This comparative info allows us to assess your business needs and offer additional consultative solutions that may impact your businesses’ financial health.

We don’t just crunch the
numbers, we tell the story.

Wisdom CPAs formally began in 2017 when Jake Wisdom acquired Marianne Schmitt’s CPA practice, a firm that had served his hometown of Hiawatha, Kansas for 36+ years. Prior to the acquisition, Jake spent several years working with clients in Hiawatha and surrounding areas to gain the experience needed to run a successful accounting firm. The dream of owning his own firm is that much sweeter by being able to locate in his hometown.

Wisdom CPAs’ is expanding the current practice into the Kansas City Metro Region to work with additional clients and provide business owners with our unique, consultative accounting style that empowers them to make wiser financial decisions.

Hard work and the dream of
a hometown accountant.

How we got here
Who we work with

While we have locations in Hiawatha and Kansas City, technology allows us to service clients all over the domestic United States. Since we have clients from California to New York, we have experience preparing most state tax returns. We have particular strengths in the small business, restaurant, retail, dentistry, and agriculture industries, but are always expanding our industry-specific knowledge.
