I am getting used to fast days. What I am now doing is on fast days I am not eating anything during day time. This way I have just under 600 cals (after 3 cups of tea) to enjoy in the evening.
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.
My week can be summed as a being a Xero week. There was Xero certification, other Xero webinars and the killer was and is WorkFlow Max. I want get this up and running ASAP since it will make a real difference to my practice.
My plan of getting my new practice management software up and running by Monday was just too ambitious.
I have been sitting through a few Xero webinars. On the whole they have been good.
Digital marketing, I am sure everyone knows, is just too important. The first port of call in purchasing decisions is now Google. Even after a referral people are checked out on Google.
As mentioned in my previous blog, it was a week where my food consumption was off the scale. So I am relieved that week 6 result is not a weight gain.
It has been another week where my to do list exceeded the time available. There are so many things I want to do in addition to client work.
Outside client work as mentioned in my previous blogs other aspects I really want sorted are:
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.
