My homeboy Joey Brannon, CPA just wrote an awesome post on his blog recently. He talked about making sure you don’t compete with your clients. I didn’t realize the focus of the post until I read further. In summary, if you are still doing work that your customers can do, then you are basically competing with them (or you will be competing with them soon). His example was a CPA that prepares individual tax returns vs. a client who can prepare their own taxes on Turbo Tax. If you keep trying to grow your practice filling out individual tax returns, then you are basically going to be competing with your clients that can prepare their own tax returns.

One of the fun parts of being the Community Manager of THRIVEal is getting to plan our annual Learning Gathering. I really enjoy this because I feel like I am planning a family reunion; the kind where you actually like your extended family and you want to spend time with them. This year we are calling our gather Deeper Weekend.
Deeper Weekenders will arrive on Tuesday and check into Hampton Inn Riverplace. That evening, we’ll all be going together to Falls Park in downtown Greenville for some team building activities and barbecue. Start praying for sunshine right this minute.
