Virtual teams

I have a business coach and I believe every business owner should have a specialist coach who knows their industry inside out. My coach is called Taki Moore. He coaches Business Coaches. I’m in his top tier (you have to qualify to be invited) private program called Boardroom.

At my last coaching meeting we had 2 special guests come speak to us. Alex and Leila Hormozi from Gym Launch.

Value Pricing

When I start coaching an Accounting firm many tell me at the outset that they are ‘value pricing’. I ask them a few questions, do a couple of equations (around average hourly rate) and very quickly I deduce that they are not.

They may be pricing up front, offering fixed fees per month, fixed fees per project, have no time sheets and maybe even charging ‘by the form’ but it doesn’t mean they are value pricing.

Alignment Plan

Getting your team (and Partners) on the same page as you is so so important. It can sometimes be hard but it doesn’t need to be.

Once everyone is on the same page and rowing in the same direction your business will really fly.

The first step in getting everyone on the same page is having a page they want to be part of!

What is the vision?
What is the direction?
Who do we want to serve?
What do we want to sell and deliver?
How will we know if we’ve made it?
What are the milestones and time-frames?

It’s Marketing Season

Every year at the same time the Accounting profession enters the best marketing opportunity of the year. Most call it ‘tax season’ I call it ‘marketing season’.

Think about it. During tax season, you’re about to meet (or speak with) almost all of your clients over a relatively short period. What an opportunity to find out what they really need?

It’s all about the culture

Most Accounting firms culture just happens. It just happens the way it is. It is like a “culture by default” where in fact you can create “culture by design”. You can decide what you want your culture to be.
