The 5 Pillars

To find your practice sweet spot

Let me show you exactly how

Step One

Nail Your Vision & Upgrade Mindset

It is hard to move in the right direction and stay on course if you don’t know where you are going. Let’s work on getting super clear on your vision for your practice and your life. Knowing what’s really important to you and why you are doing it, will set your path and make all of your decision making a breeze.

It will also help you say NO unapologetically.

Finding your passion isn’t just about career and money. It’s about finding your authentic self. The one you’ve buried beneath other people’s needs

Step Two

Articulating & Finding Your Ideal Clients

You don’t have to work with every person who comes your way. Let’s identify the people you like working  with and who light you up. We will create a message and strategy to attract more of them to your accounting practice and politely move on the ones who are no longer a fit for you and your practice direction.

I have finally gotten to the point of accepting that I CAN pick and choose clients – I can also sack them and my work life improves and does not fall down around my ears!

Step Three

Design, Price & Market Your Services

Being clear on the services you offer makes life easier for you, your team and your clients. Learn how to package your services, price them more confidently and profitably and develop a marketing plan to existing and potential clients. Your strategy doesn’t have to be complicated, just clear and well articulated. Then you’ll get the results and profits you want.

I realised from doing your course, that I do not charge enough for my time and expertise. A few minutes here and there add up as do those tasks that a client can do but chooses not to – there is now a fee applicable. More $$$$

Step Four

Develop A Winning Culture

Get super clear on the practice culture you are wanting to create and nurture. Motivated and happy staff achieve more for their employer, stay longer and become raving fans for your practice. Become an employer of choice and an accounting practice of choice that clients and colleagues are proud to be a part of and refer to.

I used to believe that culture was ‘soft,’ and had little bearing on our bottom line. What I believe today is that our culture has everything to do with our bottom line, now and into the future.

Step Five

Embrace Technology & Streamline Operations

Are you and your clients missing the shortcuts to success? Are the costs of tech tools holding you back? I will show you cost effective tech tools that leading, contemporary small and solo accounting practices are using to save themselves and their clients so much time and money. Let tech do all the heavy lifting, reduce human error, keep you compliant and give you the flexibility to work from anywhere!

Automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.
