I am on the train to Edinburgh and after nearly three years on my bookshelf I have started to read Clients4Life by Mark Lloydbottom and David W Cottle.
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.
I am really touched by PMs I have received so far. Thank you so much. I will respond to each PM over the coming days.
I have decided to take a break from blogging. I also intend to take a much deserved holiday during this period to rejuvenate.
Last week and this week up to today my chargeable hours have slumped. The key reasons for this:
1. Due diligence on TAA franchise. I am still at due diligence stage.
2. I once again distracted myself on areas that are not all that important. Need to stop this!
I admire all bloggers on AW because I think with blogging you are putting yourself out there taking a risk of not knowing how your blog will be received. Thankfully a large majority of people on AW are well adjusted and reasonable that makes blogging a lot easier.
I was listening to 7 Habits audio book today and Habit 2 did strike a chord with me. Habit 2 is begin with the end in mind. It makes a lot of sense.
We all face difficult decisions at different stages of our lives. By difficult decision I mean a decision that will have a far reaching effect in years to come.
This afternoon I had a call from an image consultant.
I am relived it’s not a gain this week. My food intake has not reduced, it needs to.
I go out of my way and avoid doing business with those who attempt to show how ethical they are by promising X amount or percentage of their sales to charity.
I will no longer become a family accountant. This is because I am dragged into family affairs that are time consuming and most of the time little to do with the terms of my engagement. I now prefer to keep my distance.
