Always Remember You Are In The People Business

One time a CPA tax partner told me he felt sick to his stomach when he had to meet with a client. He enjoyed learning all he could about taxes.

You have heard of them, the tax practitioners who can quote you excerpts from the tax code. It seems that over the years, many people went to college and majored in accounting because they love numbers (and are introverts). They are not social butterflies. They thought accounting would isolate them from all of that. That is certainly not what being a CPA is all about.

A recent tweet by Steve Keating (@LeadToday) prompted me to remind you that you are NOT in the tax, accounting, or audit business. You are in the people business.
