Exciting Times at Emperor Accounting!

by Christina on June 20, 2015

As a trusted advisor to numerous small business owners, I struggle with the same challenges as many of my clients.  Do I have enough business?  Too much? (I realize that’s a GOOD problem to have.)  Where is the business headed?  What technology solutions do I want to employ?  The list is endless.  For the past few months I have been reviewing my service offerings, deciding what I want to add and what it will take to get there.  On the short list are Xero consulting and bookkeeping services and finally earning an Enrolled Agent (EA) designation.  Xero means mastering an alternate cloud accounting technology and identifying clients in that space.  An EA designation means passing three different taxation exams and much time spent studying along the way.

So what does this mean?  Quite simply, I have to accept that I can no longer do everything myself.  I was approached by a business colleague a while ago who wanted to see if I could use her assistance with my QuickBooks bookkeeping clients. We finally spoke last Friday, and since agreeing to test the waters, I have had five new client opportunities present themselves in the past week.  So it seems that the adage, “If you build it, they will come” holds true in my own personal ‘Field of Dreams.’  We will start working together later this morning and I am excited for the opportunity to grow the business.
