Who Are We Fooling?

Back in October, I read a couple of tweets by Alan Weiss that sure got my attention. As a CPA, serving and seeking clients they apply to YOU. As a consultant serving CPAs in public practice, they also apply to me. Here’s the first:

“You cannot help people who don’t want to be helped. Find better prospects.” 

Then he followed with a 2nd tweet:

“Small businesses with several partners – worse kind of clients.”

Oh, my – what am I doing?

Most CPA firms who hire consultants have several partners. Many of these partners are very comfortable with status quo. They are making lots of money, they are riding the wave until retirement, so why change?

I’m depressed.
