“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” – Jackie Robinson

Certified Public Accountants make a lot of money. Well, in most CPA firms, partners make a lot of money.

I have observed partners who become agitated when they discover another partner made $2,000 more than they did when all partners were making over $300,000 per year. Seems petty. “I only made $327,000, but Joe made $329,000? Why is that?”

As firms grow and expand, the partners continue to make more money year after year. That is if the firm is managed properly.

Simon Sinek recently tweeted: “Focus on money and you will make money. Focus on impact and you will make an impact.”

Making money is part of the game. Don’t forget to consider the impact you make on your clients. Don’t forget the impact you make on your team. Focus on both money and impact.
