From my close work with accounting professionals, I realized this issue is epidemic. Accountants lose income when they allow something hot to go cold. Maybe you waited too long to return a phone call. Or, you forgot to deliver on a promise. Consider how much income you lose because something falls through the cracks.
These are the obvious costs for not following through:
- New clients
- Losing current clients
The hidden money leaks in your business are even more important.
- Integrity and trust
- Frustration and overwhelm
- Anxiety and emotional well being
- Time and efficiency
- Overflow into other areas of your life
Those hidden costs frequently have a longer term impact on your firm’s growth. This is more than a money issue. Lack of follow through impacts your personal life, too.Multiple benefits occur when you plug the money leaks in your business. Read post. #getpaidwhatyoureworth Click To Tweet
As they say, how you do anything is how you do everything.
Why do important things fall through the cracks?
- Spread too thin
- Don’t want to seem pushy
- Don’t like to be “sold to”
- Avoid confrontation
- People pleaser and desire to be liked
- Lack of system in place
- Keep everything in your head
Prevention requires less energy than intervention. Think about all the times you stared at the phone wanting to make a call, but didn’t. Like after you send a proposal and there’s dead silence.
Too much stuff leads to indecision. Avoidance which stems from indecision is energy draining.
