Technology and the industry are changing and we need to get onboard with it.
Run the business as a micro project – 12 micro projects for each client.
The key to these projects is understanding the scope of deliverables. It is a scope of deliverable not a scope of work. It is not about effort – it is about deliverable.
It is a people business. Talk to people. it is a relationship business.
Opportunity for bookkeeping – need to spend the time to work on the business.
Where value is putting tools together to deliver effective processes.
Stop looking at yourself as a bookkeeper or accountant.
Look for opportunities to build the business.
Business is a journey. Don’t overthink it – just do it. Must move to value pricing.
