Profit From Your CPA:
You should profit from your CPA. How so? You should profit from what your CPAs knows and from their experience in business to get the most return for your investment. Most likely it will result in more money in your pocket. What you pay your CPA should not be just an expense but it should be part of your investment in your business(es) that you profit from.
My most successful clients use me as resource to profit from. Here is a secret for you. The clients that want to use me as a resource for success I spend more time with and charge them less per hour than I do other clients. Why do they pay less? Because I enjoy talking to them because they are driven to make things happen and they are more exciting and fun. I can see where these clients are going and it will result in more profits for me in the long run. Profits not only monetarily but also from fulfillment and positive energy for me and my business.
Think about what you want from a CPA. Do you only want your taxes, books, financials, payroll etc.? Then you may get what you pay for. But if you want insight and positive energy then you are open to receiving more than what you pay for.
Think about who your CPA is and what he has seen. In the last year he should have talked to hundreds of clients about situations and what they are doing. A good CPA will want to know where his clients are going and how he can help. So a good CPA has talked to many more people just like you and like your competitors and suppliers and employees. What does he know that you can profit from? Talk about a barometer for the economy and people’s viewpoint, your CPA has a front row seat everyday to what is going on. He is a tremendous resource regarding trends and developments that you can and should profit from.
Finally, a CPA is in a position of influence. He knows people that can help you or that can use your products or services. So he is an outstanding referral source. In addition he can be a connector, connecting people who together can create and makes things happen. I am just saying, your CPA should be providing more for you than just tax returns, financial statements and payroll.
If you are not getting that from your CPA you need to call me today and let’s talk. Your CPA should be one of your most valuable resources. You need to be getting more benefit from your CPA than the value of the money you pay him. That does not come from getting him to reduce his cost it comes from your CPA giving you what he knows which creates opportunities for you.
