According the recent figures from The Office of National Statistics (a highly reliable source) being married is 20 times more important to a person's well-being than their earnings, and 13 times more important than owning a home. Meaning to be happier you need be married.
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.
Weight loss is an ongoing issue for me. You will find my weight loss blog on http://firsttab.co.uk/
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.
We will soon be entering June - a half way mark to the end of 2013. Yikes!
It is shocking how time is just flying by. Where have the past 5 months gone! What have I have done to achieve my goals? Are things better than last year?
Perhaps I should consider a move on from accountancy and tax. I don't live it, like many lovely people here do.
A few months ago whist driving to a supermarket and approaching a roundabout I noticed what I thought was increadibly effective advertising.
I am on the tube on my way back to the office after a Xero seminar in London. Typing on my mobile device and reflecting on what is it that I love about my current position.
Financially I am far worse off compared to my well above average salary at the time I left employment.
One of the key piece of information potential clients want to know is what the fees would be.
So far I have not put fees on my website for illogical reasons:
1) Do not want to give this information away to competitors - it is easy to find this out
On reflection I am back to blogging. I decided to take a break earlier in the hope of calming things. I no longer see any reason to do this.
I am absolutely determined not to be put off by a very small dominant minority on AW.
It annoys me that I had to come out of my blogging holiday and blog today. There is an imposter Anon100 who is posing as me! Not only this he has really really annoyed a few people. This is not good. How dare he/she do this!
After a highly productive meeting with my Business Coach, this is my last post (I hope and so do many readers) till the end of this year. His feedback was as follows:
I am sure you know what I mean when I say work is okay but it is not going brilliantly.
The problem for me is time. I have conflicting priorities between working in the business, working on the business and working in/on my personal matters.
