Meet Viviane Hagopian

Today we’d like to introduce you to Viviane Hagopian.

Viviane’s story began in Los Angeles, where she worked as an accountant for various well-known companies such as Sebastian International and Jons. After meeting her spouse, she moved to San Diego and worked for The Sweet Factory but wanted to have a flexible job while she started her family. That was when Viviane founded V&R Associates with her husband Robert and began the journey of entrepreneurship. The ‘V’ and the ‘R’ in the company’s name represents the first letters of the founding members. From there, her company blossomed primarily through word of mouth. Now, after 25+ years, her daughter Thalia is joining her on this venture to grow the family accounting firm. Build on the notion of personalized, hands-on attention at a fraction of a CPAs cost, V&R Associates is able to tailor a wide range of any and all accounting needs.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Owning a business will never be a smooth road. It is a full-time job to every extent possible and with the nature of accounting, long nights past normal business hours is unavoidable.
