Epic Business Growth for CPAs Podcast
Do you want to get ahead of the game and figure out where you’re trying to go, figure out where you want things to end up and see if you can steer your business there as best as possible? It’s time to do your business planning and start thinking about the big things that could be possible for you to be creating in 2020.
Do you feel like your schedule is controlling you rather than the other way around? Listen to Billie Anne Grigg of Profit First Professionals as she teaches us about time blocking, and how it saves us time, gets us organized, and keeps us sane.
Being a CPA who looks out for his or her clients by proactively scheduling end of year meetings is just one more thing you can do to separate yourself from the flock. As a CPA working with business owners, you have a better and clearer vantage point, and you can guide the way and help your clients avoid predictable pitfalls.
Michelle Cooper of Alchemy Accounting is out to design a non-traditional accounting practice. In this episode, we talk about what that might look like as technology enables more of us to be nomads at work, and about the opportunity that presents for accountants to do taxes across international borders. We also talk about about niching down, and about the Queen Bee Role in her business that has made operations clearer for everyone on her staff.
I had Dr. Sabrina Starling, author of “How to Hire the Best,” coach me around mindset blocks related to hiring challenges. We serve up some real life coaching to bring awareness and understanding to you on some of the things that might be hiding out in your own mind that might result in shifting the choices that you’re making around hiring.
Narrowing your niche is an incredibly important thing to do to help you grow your accounting practice. I want to talk about is why it’s harder to be a generalist, what the benefits are of specializing and niching down. I want to address the fears and myths about niching down. I want to give you some examples of what it might look like to choose a specialty, what you do, and who you do it for, plus some sample messaging and where to start.
Tracy Jepson of TLJ Bookkeeping and Consulting talks about her journey from charging by the hour to moving to retainer, how she listened to really understand what her clients were asking her for, how that informed the addition of advisory services, and then how in time she niche down and niche down again, to make her own life easier, and watched her business grow as a result.
Danielle Hayden of Kickstart Accounting left her corporate job in 2014 to help small business owners with their numbers and finances. Five years later she runs an accounting practice with six people on staff serving more than 275 clients all around the country. In this episode, she shows us what’s possible to create in your business in five short years.
