Here is an example of the type of complaints that I regularly receive from my Clients about poor Telco Customer Service. The common thread in nearly every issue I receive is poor #CustomerService  from an Overseas Call Centre. What we need to understand is that it is not the fault of the Staff in these Call centres. To save money the Telcos are paying them a pittance, and as a consequence are not providing the same level of Training  to the overseas  #CallCentre  as  they would to an Australian based Call Centre.
I have recently moved to Telstra business from a home account There are 2 mobiles, a wifi and a landline in that move, 3 of which are a new purchase It has taken a number of calls to get the... - 4198

A journey is always worth it. And most of the time it is no the Destination but the journey we get too concerned with. It is important to know your path. But it is the inevitable that you take it.

What are you doing to Minimise your Risk ?
Developing a +Home Protection Plan is a Strategic Solution to protect your assets. If you do not want to lose your Investment Property during the next Recession, or when Interest Rates rise again, then you need to create a Plan to Protect your assets.
What type of #Strategy  do you have in place to help prevent you losing your Investment Property Portfolio ?

Is your Accountant a Commentator or a Coach ? 4
Some Accountants see themselves as stuck in a #Commentator  role in a Business Environment where Business Coaching is required. As a result of advances in Accounting Software the modern Accountant needs to move out of the Commentator Conservation Park into the Coaches Box.

Is your Accountant / Bookkeeper a Commentator or a Coach ?
When I start assisting an Accountant to improve their business practices the first Question I ask them is, "Are you a Commentator or a Coach ?". Most then look at me in a puzzled way because they don't understand my question, and this shows that there is a big problem. The vast majority of Accountants see themselves like a #SportsCommentator  , sitting in a Glassed Enclosed Air Conditioned Box watching the Game take place below. The Accountant does not see themselves as being part of the Game, rather as a Score Keeping Commentator who is not in the Game with the clients, just a casual observer. "Get out the Popcorn whilst we watch this Business sink", is the attitude of some Accountants. Before the arrival of advanced #AccountingSoftware  many Accountants could get away with this #DinosaurApproach  . However, to effectively meet the needs of todays Business owners the Accountant needs to transform into a Business Consultant, no longer just commenting on the #Game  but now actively participating as a #BusinessCoach  .

COMPETITION IS A FACT OF LIFE

If you innovate, you will be copied.

It’s like a rites of passage.

If you have a patent, you are more protected.

But it’s not bulletproof.

Dyson had a patent and he got copied by Hoover.

How do they sleep?

They sleep just fine.

They don’t have your code of honour.

It’s dog eat dog for them.

You can be angry.

You can be right.

You can be hurt.

But you won’t change them.

Yes, you have protection like Patents, Trademarks, and Copyrights.

All of them afford protection of your way of doing things. All of them are important.

But maybe the best protection is this:

To create a culture of ideas, to never stand still.

That way they will never catch up with you.

And you get to win.

What are you doing to Minimise your Risk from the next Recession ?
Very few Economic Commentators like to talk about the next #Recession  , because it is not a popular discussion point. But the Economy is Cyclical, and the Smart Property Investor will recognise the current stage of the Property Cycle and create a Strategic Plan that factors in the likelihood of another Recession in 12-36 months time.

Is your Accountant/Bookkeeper a Commentator or a Coach ? 2
The arrival of #AdvancedAccountingSoftware  has changed the Game completely for Accountants. No longer can Accountants play the role of Commentators on the Game below, keeping Scorecards on the Players in the match. Accountants must now see themselves as being #ProActive  in the Game as Coaches, no longer in Air Conditioned luxury Boxes, but on the field with the Players out in the elements, in all weather.

Are you still using Accounting Software from a CD-ROM ? 2
This Dinosaur mode of operations is a major cause of #Stress  within the Account Management of your Business. The Team at #FlindersAccounting  have access to advanced Software so that they can work with your Accounts monthly on a live basis. This means that you can be alerted to any potential financial problems almost immediately, rather than you finding out about it 6 months later when it is too late.
Would you like your #AccountManagement  to be #StressFree  ?
