Sole Practitioner's blog

This blog is intended to reflect the highs and lows that I face day to day working as a sole practitioner.

I tend to blog regularly. I don't know why, but there is a strong need in me to blog my every day experience. I have no idea how long this will last.

All I can say is It helps me to put my thoughts, feelings and views on a blog. When writing I am not too concerned about spelling, grammar or even how I come across. I feel that if I worry about these areas, the subject matter I want to put across will not reflect how I am thinking and feeling at the time.

My blogs reflect the type of person I am. That is the nature of blogging. It is meant to reflect views and thoughts of the blogger.

I will not be to everyone's tastes. Thankfully AW has a good variety of bloggers. This means there are more than likely to be blogs more in keeping with your taste.

I am humbled by the fact that my blog is actually read! Not only this but some readers go as far as commenting.

Thank you for reading my blogs and commenting. I really do appreciate it.

Today I have been googling on fees accountants charge. The number of accountants that have a transparent pricing structure on their website has increased since last time I googled on this subject. This is about 4 months ago.

I am sure I am not the only one (or am I?) when a good client (profitable) says good bye it is such a downer. I feel like going out for a massive meal. It is my fast day! I won't. I am trying to change.

I think any business just to stay afloat needs to be on a  continuous recruitment drive. Otherwise lost customers will not be replaced and the business will eventually be  left with customers that just do not generate enough revenue to  make it worthwhile.
