8 1/2 years - thats a fair stretch, even with remission.
Never worth it... greed, horrid thing...

As flash says
A client that fussy sounds bad news.
Is it survival of the fittest. Yes, long term, as you are only as good as your success in keeping client happy.
Shorter term, I don't know, clients motivations for choosing an accountant vary. I always approach the issue from the other side - where would I go / what would I look for if I wanted an accountant.

Bit of both
I've always thought a combination of routes to market would be desirable if business growth was the requirement; a physical shop front for retail clients, a office elsewhere fr back office/ professional clients, and a good web site for the online stuff. Maybe even with differential branding, between the retail side and professional side,
If I was starting over, I'ld consider a multi strategy.

I always find
howling at the moon a great relief, and better for the digestive system than coffee.

Not waste time in drivel like this, would be a starter :)

My specialism is maximising the income from my practice with minimum effort.
Does it have to be more complex than that?
Or to put it another way, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

This and that
I spent part of the day at a local Musuem I help out at: they've moved over the winter, and I was setting up part if the Musuem shop for the new season.
Then a short workout at home - I did a longer one last night at the local gym - then yoga. I've recently discovered yoga - I'm addicted: for the last few weeks I've had a class in Saturday, none today, but spent a long time trying to perfect some moves and positions. Headstands are proving obstinate, but as I approach my 46th year, seeing as I've never done one in my life, that's probably not surprising.
Fitted the washing in as well somewhere!
Gym last night, short workout at home tonight.

Where I live...
...it's the opposite - the more clouds, well surface water - the more likelihood of cloud not working as the joints in the BT cable get damp... Joys of rural life.

I think the USP requirement is a misnomer, or at least putting the cart before the horse.
The key thing is personal return to the proprietor of the business (you).
If you can make that return without USPs, or any of the other stuff that passes for business advice these days, then all well and good.
Sometimes the bravest thing is to say "I am no different, just here".
