Grow your accounting practice into a business that can thrive at scale without you.
Repeat for your small business clients.
There’s never been a better time to grow your accountancy practice, or to build an accounting practice from scratch.
Tech promises to streamline the mundane. Baby-boomer accountants are looking to sell up and retire. You know the accountancy game is changing, and you’re in it to win it.
Until now, two things have held you back:
COVID-19 has changed that:
Now’s the time to build on it
A scramble to automation and remote working got you through this crisis.
Now its time to re-design and re-build your business on purpose, using what you’ve learned about tech, your team and your clients to create a resilient business that can thrive at scale.
That means using technology and automation to free up the people in your business to serve your advisory clients the way you would yourself. With analysis, insight and practical help to run their businesses.
It means thinking differently about what you really do for your clients; about how you share the work, about how and where ‘management’ happens.
It means building your business as a system for making and keeping promises.
What does every human being want?
As human beings we delight in our sense of agency – of being able to change the world around us, to make our own unique ‘me-shaped’ ‘dent’ in the universe.
We feel more delight when we feel ourselves mastering new skills in order to make our dent bigger.
We feel more delight when we have autonomy over how we make our dent.
And we feel even more delight when we make a dent for a purpose that we deem bigger than ourselves.
All this delight is amplified when we do it with like-minded fellow humans. Because we are fundamentally social and collaborative.
So, for most humans, one of the most delightful experiences possible is to be working with our fellows to make a ‘people like us’ shaped dent in the universe for a purpose that matters to us.
Isn’t that what you want too?
I help business owners like you to build their business into a ‘people like us’-shaped hammer – a delightful community of workers, prospects, suppliers and customers that together, make a bigger dent.

A business that can thrive without you is valuable.
A business built as a system for making and keeping promises is more valuable, because it can be scaled up even further, through replication or organic growth.
When that system is visible, institutionalising your original vision and values; simply documented and lived day-to-day, that value is defensible.
Step away when you choose.
It also means you can step away when you choose. There’s no need to be tied in as a consultant, when the business runs without you anyway.
Once you know how to do this for your own business, you can help your clients do the same – grow a business they can step up with or away from whenever they choose.
They’ll thank you for it.
They’ll pay you for it.
They’ll stay with you for it.
