My Week – The Conference

My Sunday Ramblings

It was clear Sift had put a lot of thought, time and effort in organising Practice Excellence Conference. It was well worth attending.

I was not impressed with the early morning sessions. I think, I was very much in the minority. I have read too many self-help books including attending master motivational guru Anthony Robbins Unleash the Power within seminar. I know what and how the motivational gurus will talk. It was not a surprise. It was not for me. I really have had  more than my fill of all these type of events and reading.   Continue reading “My Week – The Conference”

My Week – Curtains or Blinds?

My Sunday Ramblings

My home is still in a right mess! This will carry on to next week as well. All good though since I will have a great place to live in.

I will have new ceilings, new lightening, fresh new paint, new carpets and may be a gym (?). Plus other bits and pieces.

As you may know, I have worked very hard in the past to be in a position I am in now. There was no help from parents nor any inheritance or a wife/partner. It is all me! I get a great deal of satisfaction from this. Continue reading “My Week – Curtains or Blinds?”

My Week – Loose ends

As my business grows, it is important that I clear loose ends for me to move forwards.

Loose ends are stressful, since they keep nagging me to deal with them. None of us are perfect beings, I have no doubt we all have loose ends.

This week, I put in writing all the loose ends that are bugging me. I also set a date for each loose end task to be completed. These tasks include practice management, client issues and some personal staff. Continue reading “My Week – Loose ends”

Reviewing our day-to-day work this week, I was pleased to see that this year we are in a far better position on personal tax returns than we ever were before. Bar one client, all the heavy time-consuming tax returns will be completed by the end of next week.

I cannot see us having the Jan stress! We will be open to taking on new clients. Last year we had to turn them down due to a heavy workload. Continue reading “My Week – Nitty-Gritty”

My Week – Failed juggling act

My Sunday Ramblings

Over the past few months, I have upped my time spent on marketing my business. This is how it should be in order to maintain our income level. Clients who leave need be replaced. Marketing should be a continuous activity in order to survive and progress.

Marketing has consumed me. I love it because it has a direct impact on my business success. I did not got any outside help since I could not find anything that would give me value for money.

My marketing efforts have yielded good results in terms of client recruitment. Continue reading “My Week – Failed juggling act”
