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.

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.

I think all of us in business know without sales there is no business. Yet I as an accountancy trainee spent long hours learning technical accountancy and taxation areas but I was not taught how best to market and sell the services it took me years to master.

I am a real sucker for self-help books. It started at the age of 17 when I bought my first self-help book from a charity shop - How to Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie.

I wonder are they many like me who worked harder for their employers than themselves?
