Did you see or hear about the US Women’s National Team defeating the Dutch with a strong second half and bringing home their 4th World Cup Championship? It was undoubtedly an exciting game! And it’s a great reminder that the second half can be a game-changer, for your business and personal goals!
Your accountant should be able to help…we call it proactive accounting, because we meet with our business clients throughout the year to plan for taxes and ways to grow your business. The role of your accountant in your business is more than merely financial, though. So, here is some free coaching, and a little “halftime pep talk” so that when you close the books on 2019, you show a victory, rather than a loss.
Have you been thinking too small?
Most business owners (and their accountants) don’t ask themselves that question nearly enough. We get so caught up in the day-to-day concerns of operating that we don’t take the time to consider it. We’d like to challenge you to take time and consider what is holding you back from taking that next step?
Sure, there are probably ideas in your head that could take your business to the next level. How does those ideas work? What is the financial investment or impact? Will you need to staff up or take on other expenses? Let’s run the numbers and see what the net result would be. The worst thing that could happen is if you don’t try those ideas and your business doesn’t experience ensuing growth. If your idea fails … then what? Knowing an idea doesn’t work can be a win in itself.
Why wait until a “New Year’s Resolution” to put your big dreams into action? Halftime is when teams talk about the first half, make adjustments, and then go back out to win the game. Now is the right time to meet with your accountant to strategize for the remainder of this year, and plan for next!
Here are a few practical steps you can take right now:
- Write down your biggest ideas for your business. Don’t write more than three, and place them where you can see them every day.
- Work backwards and write down two to three steps required to reach each goal.
- Create short-term and long-term goals to reach the big idea.
- Take it one day at a time.
- Bring some of your team members in on the process to help you stay accountable.
