Product Description

Product Description

Dear Friend,
In 2008, my business ran into trouble. Staring at the abyss, just one payment away from bankruptcy, I contacted my accountant.
I remember being sat at his reception, scared and completely despondent as I waited for him to call me in.
I resembled the guys about to face the electric chair in the movies.
When I explained situation, he shook his head as if to say you are toast.
He advised that I closed shop and start afresh.
For me the idea of closing down my business without a fight was something I was unwilling to accept.
I went to my two closest friends for advice…one a professor and the other an entrepreneur.
My professor friend advised that I followed the advice of my accountant, while my entrepreneur friend told me to not even give it a thought.
I still remember my entrepreneur friend telling me: “Romeo accountants are really great with figures, but when it comes to business, they leave a lot to be desired”.
“How many successful accounting firms do you know”?
“You see Romeo, if you want to calculate your expenditures, you can go to your accountant. However, when it comes to management and business growth, you want to be contacting a business consultant”.
He was the one who exposed me to the difference between professionalism and business.
There is a different between the profession of accounting and the business of accounting.
The profession of accounting is the deliverables: creating profit and loss statement, completing end of year account or performing audit on behalf of your client.
The business of accounting on the other hand is about three functions:
• Operations: the deliverables
• Marketing: attracting and retaining clients
• Finance: knowing your numbers
Because most accountants are trained in the profession of accounting, even when they establish their own accounting firms, they tend to ignore the other aspects of running their firms.
Like accounting, business is a profession. Obtaining a CPA does not automatically qualify you to run an accounting business.
Just recognising this simple fact will save lots of entrepreneur accountants the agony of working for less than the minimum wage.
There are known and reliable principles for accounting firm business growth that when deployed properly in a practical way, can attract truckload of potential clients to your firm.
Those principles are the focus of:How To Effectively Market and Manage An Accounting Firm

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas for those who need it 31 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone who thinks he knows a bit about accounting but on occasion feels woefully uninformed, this book is exactly what I was looking for. It is interesting, readable, witty in places and pitched at just the right level - being informative without being patronising. Most importantly it covers all those crucial topics I kind of thought I knew about but didn't really, and occasionally ended up feeling slightly clueless in conversations whilst others waxed lyrical about crunches, markets and all the `isms' (insert protection, multilateral, capital etc as required).

At last I can properly understand all those slightly baffling accounting phrases that the papers are littered with - stagflation and quantitative easing trip off my tongue. Hurrah! And most importantly I can now play those irritating conversationalists who pretend they know stuff at their own game.

Its clear and concise and easy to dip into. I'm very interested but I'm afraid I don't have time to go digging into massive tomes. I know these are big subjects and there is a lot more to read but as an introduction this is just perfect. Thank you Mr Romeo Richards for a refreshing and compelling introduction to a tricky but topical subject!
