Death by DIY

By Anna Masker In standard17th November, 2016 Death by DIY

The client called me almost 6 months after we had originally spoken.  They had chosen to take our suggested solution and implement it themselves, saying it was cheaper to do it in house rather than to hire us. Six months later, what they had was a bigger mess than what they started with.  Unfortunately, they

Are you “flying blind?”

By Anna Masker In standard11th November, 2016 Are you “flying blind?”

Often, we speak to business owners who feel they don’t have clear visibility on their numbers or what drives their businesses’ performance.  Time and again they use the same phrase…”I’m flying blind.” Normally these are businesses that are struggling in some capacity, whether it is managing cash flow or profitability, or trying to understand what’s

Squirrel!!!

By Anna Masker In standard3rd November, 2016 Squirrel!!!

It’s conference season for me.  I’ll admit, at these conferences I’m like a kid in a candy shop. It’s the new technology that gets me excited, and there are so many new developments even since last year, it’s unbelievable. I find myself saying again and again, “oh, we could use that…” or, “our client would LOVE

Spooked by Risk?

By Anna Masker In standard24th October, 2016 Spooked by Risk?

There was once a time that my kids hated the scary characters roaming the street on Halloween.  They would give every ghoul or goblin a full 6 feet of clearance as we passed, and would cling to my hand a little tighter.    I miss those days.   Now my kids are all over Halloween,

Pay attention to Project Velocity

By Anna Masker In standard13th October, 2016 Pay attention to Project Velocity

Here’s a common scenario:  You are in your post-project wrap up meeting.  The team finished the project under budget and within the allotted hours.  The client is satisfied with the work and everyone on the team starts congratulating themselves on a “job well done.” Except no one mentions that the project took 3 months longer

Managing by Matching

By Anna Masker In standard29th September, 2016 Managing by Matching

Sometimes when we do our monthly reviews with clients, a theme appears.  This month it was matching. Matching means making sure that revenues and expenses are matched in the same period.  In layman’s terms it simply means if you invoiced a client for work done in that month, you want to make sure all the

What’s in your playbook?

By Anna Masker In standard23rd September, 2016 What’s in your playbook?

It’s football season, and with it comes the donning of team jerseys, trips to football stadiums, and Monday-morning quarterbacking. It got me thinking about team playbooks.  Guarded like gold, and critical to a team’s success, a player wouldn’t be allowed on the field without having memorized all the plays. Yet, many businesses operate every day

Put the business book DOWN!

By Anna Masker In standard31st August, 2016 Put the business book DOWN!

I struggled to write this post, because frankly,  I LOVE business books.   I mean I really  love them.   I read about 1 every two weeks (well, technically I don’t read them, I listen to them.)   If you check out my Audible account it’s pretty ridiculous the number of books I have in my library.

The Big Data in Your Small Business

By Anna Masker In standard26th August, 2016 The Big Data in Your Small Business

There is a lot of big data in your small business. OK, maybe not the Big Data that Google and Facebook capture…  rather, the everyday data that, if you could harness it, would give you big insights and even bigger results. That’s what we consider big data in small business. The key is harnessing that

Scaling up: Don’t leave your accounting department behind

By Anna Masker In standard19th August, 2016 Scaling up: Don’t leave your accounting department behind

You may have started this business on your kitchen table, or in your garage, or, even in a trendy new co-working space.  But now you’re officially a “big” company, pulling in a couple million — with your own office space and a staff and a lot of growth on your horizon. You are a real
