My staff think post January tax season we do not have much work to do. This annoyed me since there are so many practice management tasks we have to complete. This is the time to do it.

My Friday’s sky-high blog hit rate shows I was mentioned on Accounting Web. I wonder what was said? I will never know.
Leaving aside Friday’s avoidable distraction and nonsense, how would I sum up my week?

I have no doubt we are all aware that time is a unique resource. As I get older, I value my time more and more. I cannot buy more of it. All I can do is make the most of the time I have.

I am sure there comes a time in every sole practitioner’s career when the question arises- “should I take on one member of staff now?”. I have now arrived at this stage. Continue reading “Is there ever a right time to take on staff?”
