No telling you what to do - just ideas, inspiration, and a little of her trademark craziness to help you build your best bookkeeping practice.
Identifying Bottlenecks In Your Practice
What is preventing you from moving forward in your business?
What is taking too long?
These are bottlenecks that slow down our flow.
3 signs you have a bottleneck in your practice: Project Delays, Staff Burnout, and Rework
Knowing that you have bottlenecks in your practice isn’t the same as identifying them and trying to eliminate them. What you want to focus on is trying to systemize your business and treat your work-product like going through that assembly line.

Dealing with Imposter Syndrome
This was one of the harder episodes that I've recorded so far. Imposter syndrome is a real thing and it holds a lot of us back from being our best.

So, I had to go there!
