So this is what happened when I said to my team they could work when, where and how they wanted (back in 2018)..
Contrary to popular opinion at the time..
they didn't stop coming to the office
they didn't move to the Bahamas and work from a beach
they didn't all start working from...
Struggling to attract new clients?
And can't seem to pinpoint why?
You may be swimming in the sea of sameness.
Does your website look like every other accountants website?

Chances are, your pricing needs attention
Given the nature of what we do as accountants, our services are very fluid

What do you do with all the (useful) content that you read, watch and listen to ?
You know the stuff that really stands out that you want to keep for future reference.
How do you organise it all?
How do you take notes from podcasts or Youtube videos?
If you don't do you wish you did?
