CPAs and accountants worked crazy hours in 2020. The start of 2021 may be no different. Many CPAs, out of concern for their clients, logged extra hours for those clients, to understand PPP, EIDL, and other loan programs to help keep their clients’ businesses afloat.

It's easy to let your business run you, and dictate your day-to-day. It's ok (sort of), it happens to most of us. But if you want 2021 to be really different from 2020, now is the time to th…
 
My guest today is Erica Goode. Erica is a freelance finance professional, working with a small handful of clients, focusing on financial forecasts while staying out of tax as much as possible.

If you have ever had to fire a client, you know how hard it can be. In the end, you know it will be better for you both (or at least, for you), but when it comes time to have the conversation or hit the Send button, it’s easy to talk yourself out of doing it today. Letting go of, or getting your clients in the right service at the right price, can …
 
Trap money is money that looks like good money, but in reality, it’s a trap. Trap Money is important to be able to recognize because it’s one of the factors keeping CPAs under the glass income ceiling and working long hours. If you can learn to recognize Trap Money for what it is, you’ll be better equipped to say No Thank You at the gates, and then…
