I read and read more and more about the spam attacks. One by one questions and responses on most areas of AW were posted. A few members even threatened to leave. What a disaster! Would Sift beg them to stay? Would they?
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.

I love blogging since it helps me to get my thoughts down on paper (screen). As you know, I have been doing this for some time.
If you are anything like me when a potential client asks questions, you respond in the best possible way to impress them to buy your services.

I was so so so busy today. I signed on my first barrister client. It felt great.
I emailed clients about the fact that my employee has left and I have a replacement starting mid-August. Overall clients were very understanding.
I will make a job offer to my mentee and NOT my intern.
It was a difficult decision since both the candidates are a good match in terms of what I look for from an employee. They are both qualified ACCA with small practice experience. This is a big big plus.
Friday 12 June
I need the weekend off. Due to my workload I will be in the office tomorrow from 9 am to 1 pm. Otherwise, I will not be able to relax.
The thought occurred to me during the week whether I should take a step back. By this I mean, work with my current client base that I have and NOT replace my ex-employee. I should go back to working from my home.

In just 6 months, 2015 will be over? I know you have heard it before, time flies!
As you know from My Day blog that a merger with another practice may become an option. The key question here is would a merger be the right way forward?
