From two previous posts on profiting from your CPA and a most valuable resource for entrepreneurs you may have recognized some of the basic laws behind how I conduct my business as a CPA. To become familiar with these laws for success you need to read the Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann. Below are the 5 laws for Stratospheric Success mentioned in the book:
1. The Law of Value
Your true worth is determined by
how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
2. The Law of Compensation
Your income is determined by
how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
3. The Law of Influence
Your influence is determined by
how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.
4. The Law of Authenticity
The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
5. The Law of Receptivity
The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
The Law of Value: I want to give to my clients services and feedback/information that is of more value than what they pay me. The Law of Receptivity: I am open to profit from what I learn from my clients. Profit from what? Information and their experiences and sometimes referrals to others who provide quality services. I addressed the Law of Authenticity in a recent post entitled “Begin With the End in Mind.” You too will find that applying these laws in your business and your life will help you succeed in a stratospheric manner.
My best clients are open to these laws and they are or they will succeed as a result. My clients that have not yet learned these laws will hear me consistently refer to them and will be encouraged to read the book. I have been giving copies of this book to my clients as gifts for over a year now.
