Well said Nick. In trying their best for their clients (some of whom don't deserve such devotion), too many accountants end up having a negative impact on their own lives.
Everyone has a right to balanced and fair relationships. It's okay for an accountant to say "Stop! This isn't working for me", to put themselves and their own lives first, or at the very least on the same footings as the needs of their clients.
As a profession we need to get better at standing up for ourselves and our own priorities and goals. The right clients will understand.
"It’s not your country or the amount of cloud accounting subscriptions sold in your region that determine how progressive your business is or will be. It’s the choices you’ve made for your clients, your team and your infrastructure."
Great comment Trent. UK accountants can be up there with the best. In my experience, I've found that the Australian mindset seems to mean an earlier adoption of ideas and a more relaxed approach to change but, here in the UK, once we are onboard, we embrace development with a passion.
