Small Practice Blog

This blog is intended to show the highs and lows I face day-to-day working as an ambitious and highly driven small practice owner.

My blogs will be both professional and personal. What happens in my personal life affects my professional life and vice versa.

Just covering one aspect and not the other means that I will not learn how to improve and change.

My key motivation for blogging is constant and never ending improvement. Writing helps me to do this.

I hope you find my blogs of some interest.

To my complete surprise I was up at 5:30am today. I had a great bike ride. For the first time I arrived in my office at 7:50am and I am now ready to start work.

I am not saying I am having an easy time. It is tough! Blogging (writing) and talking to my little support group helps.

I know it will not be easy not having being able to share my life with the person I had my heart set on.

Why did it have to happen in January! It really is the worst month for accountants. Life has to go on. I am not a teenager so I will try and not be in misery for months and months.
