Time to reset?

By Shane Lukas, Managing Director, AVN

So the UK is having a general election (in case you hadn’t noticed).

Which of course means an absolute deluge of news, comment, claims and counter-claims. I feel exhausted already and there’s another 4 weeks to go!

Whoever you vote for and whatever the result, this constitutes a reset. Even if the present Government remain in power, there’ll have been a shake-up of MPs and Parliament will look different to how it looked before. There’ll be a sense of a new start, which is what every organisation needs, be it an entire nation or a small accountancy firm.

It’s a bit of a forced analogy I know, but I do think it holds true. In the UK we have a general election every 5 years at most because there’s a recognised need to look at what’s happening, review the best way forward and refresh how things get done.

The other option is to keep on doing the same things in the same way, over and over again, without the opportunity to vote for change.

And I’ve seen so many accountancy firms take that other option. Same kind of work, day in, day out. Getting more and more worn down. Running on a treadmill that never changes, never stops.

So my election slogan would be: IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY!

Time to reset your accountancy practice

Honestly, there are so many ways to improve an accountancy practice. Some of them take time, granted, but even small changes can make a massive difference to profitability, client quality and the overall happiness of the team and the owner(s).

I’ll be sharing some of these strategies at 2 workshops I’m running in July. These are live sessions with loads of opportunities to talk to other accountants who are in the same boat, so you can share experiences and solutions.

So, if you’re ready to try something different, find out more here: The PracticeBoost Workshop. And if you have any questions, just get in touch.
