Be Bold – Lead Don’t Follow

The best companies don’t focus on where their competition is going. The best companies focus on where they are going. – Simon Sinek

The question gets asked all the time. “What are other firms doing?”

Do you ever wonder about those “other firms?” Where are they? How many people do they have? How did they come up with the idea? Where do they get their ideas? Does the idea really work?

In the world of public accounting firms, I have found that so many successful firms are always willing to share their ideas. If you aren’t aware, simply join the CPA Firm Management Association (CPAFMA) and read their all-member discussion board called “Connect.” Every day, firms are asking questions and getting answers from other members of CPAFMA. I notice that some contributors are usually “the leaders.” These firms are not afraid to try things and then share their successes and failures.

Too many firms simply follow the leader. Don’t be afraid to try things and encourage your entire team to be more creative. Be one of the leading firms and not always the follower.

In 2022, be bold.
