Price Sensitive Clients

Mind Set Sales

Been speaking to a lot of accountants lately and all of them have been complaining about how price sensitive their clients are.

What most of us don’t realize is that we are partially to blame for this price sensitivity.

Ain’t that a kick in the pants!!!

Cleaning Carpets

You won’t believe the conversation I had with the guy who cleaned my carpets.

But when you look at the underlying model you’ll see that many of us are guilty of the same thing to some extent.

It was just another example of why accountants need to stop focussing on efficiencies in their accounting practices.

Changing Seasons

My daughter LOVES playing in the pumpkin patch.

Got me to thinking about how the changing seasons make accountants feel.

More specifically…how they feel about the always upcoming TAX season.

There is a solution to the madness.  It just takes a willingness to question the status quo.

This is a quick video I shot in Durango Colorado.

I was attending a high level two day MasterMind with 12 other business owners from around the globe.

MasterMinds are incredibly powerful…and they are amazing for accountants as well.

The real Key is how you structure them…

Telephone Tag

If there’s one thing that drives me crazy, it’s playing telephone tag with clients.

They call you – you’re busy – you call them back – they’re busy….and on and on it goes…

It wastes time and is completely unnecessary.

Use the concept of your 3 choices (A,D or E) to solve the problem and free up your time so you can provide real value to your clients.

Something that comes up regularly with many of my new coaching clients is the sheer amount of WIP they’re carrying in their accounting practices.

In this video I explore why WIP occurs in the first place and give you 5 questions to ask yourself about your WIP.

Ultimately, I think the REAL question is…

Why even have WIP?

Make Some Noise

Life as an accountant isn’t all about the work that we do or the value that we provide our clients.

It’s also about the freedom we can create for ourselves. To be able to spend time doing the things we love to do – outside of our practices.

This is a super quick quick video about what I love to do.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you love to do in your time away from the office.

Take a Break

Summertime is here and accountants everywhere are starting to take well deserved holiday time.

But when you’re taking time away from the office are you really giving yourself a break…

…or are you just changing where you’re working from?

It took me awhile to figure it out.

When I did it changed who I was when I returned back to the office.

3 Choices – A, D or E

Accountants are always busy.   Busy busy busy.

Every time I ask, “How are you are?”  it’s always the same answer…”I’m soooooo busy!”

Have you ever stopped to analyze exactly what you’re doing that keeps you so busy?  If you’re like me you’re probably doing some (if not a lot) of things you shouldn’t be doing.

Here’s what I do about what I shouldn’t be doing.

It comes down to 3 choices – A D or E.

You get to choose.

The choice is yours.

I had to get something off my chest as I’m tired of seeing so many accountants living in hell for the months of January to April.

There are 3 glaring things that need to be said about this time of year….3 things that are going to sting a little bit.

Actually, they should sting a lot.

The good news is that you CAN do something about this if you’re seriously sick and tired of working this crazy way.

Business Business Model Mind Set

January is a time when people look forward to a New Year full of opportunities to change and to have new life experiences.

Sadly, accountants don’t have the same feelings about the beginning of a New Year like everyone else.  They are normally dreading the thought of the oncoming “busy season”.

What’s your New Year going to be like?

Will this be a Happy New Year for you…or an Unhappy Same Year?

In this quick tips video I share the most valuable concept you need to transform your practice and your success as a professional accountant.

The old school model of charging for our time is flawed and needs to be replaced.  Most other businesses already follow the model I’ll show you in this video as it’s basic economics.

But once you apply it in your own practice, you’ll never look back.
