Thought for the week:

"If you know what you want, then your one step closer to it. If you take a step in that direction, then you're actually making it happen. Think small when it comes to steps and big when it comes to dreams."

Manage the new complexity of business without getting complicated. Simplify.

"...Business leaders, this is your real battle ... the real battle is not against our competitors, it is against ourselves, our bureaucracy, or complicatedness."
 
Why do people feel so miserable and disengaged at work? Because today's businesses are increasingly and dizzyingly complex — and traditional pillars of management are obsolete, says Yves Morieux. So, he says, it falls to individual employees to navigate the rabbit's warren of interdependencies. In this energetic talk, Morieux offers six rules for "smart simplicity." (Rule One: Understand what your colleagues actually do.)

To quote @ChrisPirillo your community may surround you, but it isn’t about you - How to Build Your .. Community http://bit.ly/1D6I8tK

Stay prepared, especially when the wind is low.
The One Thing to Avoid When Your Business Lacks Momentum Momentum is a beautiful thing when you’ve got it. But sometimes it can feel like we’re just sitting in the water going nowhere. I’ve certainly felt that. When I first started blogging, I was only drawing a few hundred visitors a month to my site. No matter what I tried it seemed like I couldn’t […]

SOME QUESTIONS ... AND ANSWERS!:


Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a service provider like you?
A: Don't skimp on quality!  Sure, you want the service to be cost effective (and we are that) and you also want a great job done with efficiency and effectiveness.  That calls for experience, know-how, and attention to detail ... that's us!  Get to know us, and ask questions about what we can do to meet your particular need ... then put us to work for you!

Q: If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A:  You don't always need a CPA (paying CPA firm-type rates!) to do your day-to-day, month-to-month finance and accounting activities.  CPA's can be great for audit, tax and other specialized tasks, but having a well-rounded and experienced business individual who understands your business context, knows accounting, and delights in handling your everyday activity can be had for less cost.

Q: What questions should a consumer like me ask to hire the right service professional?
A:
  1. Do you offer a free initial consultation to discuss the particulars of my specific need?
  2. What will happen during that initial discussion?
  3. For someone who isn't an accounting professional, how will I gain "comfort" about your competence?  How will you demonstrate that the work has been done correctly?
  4. What are your rates for the task, responsibility, or task that I need completed?
  5. What do you require of me to engage your services?
Q:  What important information should buyers like me have thought through before seeking you out?
A:
  1. Do you have a specific idea of what your needs are?
  2. Do you know the timing required?
  3. Do you have identified the information, data, and other resources required from you to complete the job to your satisfaction?
Q: Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A:  What do you thing of when you hear the word "Accountant?" ... a downward focused countenance underneath a green eye shade, an introverted personality cloistered in a back office, and constantly focused on "bean-counting" to the exclusion of all else ... that's NOT us!!

In addition to actually enjoying working with numbers, we enjoy interacting with our clients and their diverse personnel.  We provide not only expertise and passion for doing the job well, we also bring an attitude  of enthusiasm, reliability, responsiveness and integrity to the task.  We don't mind diving into the detail when needed, yet can help our clients understand what that detail means to the wider business context in which you operate and how it applies to the financial objectives you're trying to achieve.

What does that mean for you?  Straight-forward, understandable and effective solutions from an active and engaged resource!  Happy days are here again!
