Doug Slaybaugh


Doug serves as a coach to CPAs and for the accounting industry. Doug’s journey includes twenty years within the accounting profession, with the greater part of his initiation spent with some of the largest firms in the world, as well as calls to adventure as controller, CFO, and entrepreneur. As a former audit partner, rainmaker, and graduate of The Rainmaker Academy, Doug has been through the trials and transformation that many Rainmaker Academy candidates experience.

Changed by his professional experiences, Doug sought out the opportunity to serve individuals within the accounting profession as a coach. This new vision was imagined through extensive experience coaching CPAs within the accounting firms he worked, and a fierce compassion to serve. Doug began this new chapter of his professional career, developing the skills, experience, and knowledge to become a premier coach for CPAs.

Doug is certified as a coach through the International Coach Federation and is a CPA. He continues his path to serve CPAs by creating engaging coaching relationships. These connections empower growth to exceed his client’s expectations of business, career, and life, as they strive to be their best self. Together, he’ll go with them where they couldn’t go themselves.

Doug lives in Colorado where he enthusiastically juggles time between coaching, date nights with his wife, parenting his two children and finding time for the occasional horror movie, skateboarding adventure, or comic book.
