Just leave it, PLEASE!

By Anna Masker In standard26th January, 2017 Just leave it, PLEASE!

One of the commands we are working on with my dog is “Leave it.”  The other day I was taking her for a walk and a rabbit ran right in front of us, and as soon as I said “Leave it,” she wanted to chase it– quite the opposite of my well-intentioned command. Ironically, I

“What?! You’re leaving?!”

By Anna Masker In standard20th January, 2017 “What?! You’re leaving?!”

The business owner on the other end of the line still sounded shell shocked. His bookkeeper had just walked into his office to announce she was quitting. He was calling us for some emergency transition help. Like many small businesses, this woman ran his whole back office operation. She managed cash, she paid the bills,

Getting butts in seats

By Anna Masker In standard12th January, 2017 Getting butts in seats

“Sooo busy…” “Swamped” “Crazy.”   Ask any entrepreneur how things are going, and rarely will you hear a zen response like ” I have peace and balance in my life, and am fully fulfilled.”  Rather, you’d likely hear one of the responses above.    In the tumult of daily business life we are often running…

The Learnings are in the Gaps

By Anna Masker In standard16th December, 2016 The Learnings are in the Gaps

“The learnings are in the gaps!”  I exclaimed. My team looked puzzled.  We were having an internal meeting, talking about how to explain to the client the value of (and the difference between) P&L Projections and a Business Plan.  We get it.  To us, it’s a no-brainer, a slam-dunk, a need-to-have-to-run-your-business, type of investment.  But,

Bye-Bye Bookkeeper, Your Job is Becoming Obsolete

By Anna Masker In standard30th November, 2016 Bye-Bye Bookkeeper, Your Job is Becoming Obsolete

I’m just going to say, I’m glad we offer advisory and other services outside of bookkeeping, because if I were a straight-up bookkeeper today, I’d be seriously concerned about my job. That’s the message I took away from a recent accounting conference I attended after first-hand discussions with various technology providers exhibiting. Technology is making

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

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,

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

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
