Using Cloud Accounting to Identify High-Value Clients

Who are your high-value clients and what are you doing to show them the love?

FreshBooks recently tasked me with writing an article about using cloud accounting to identify high-value clients in my business. It was a fun piece to write because I’d recently dug into my own data to analyze the ROI of attending FinCon and to negotiate with a client to pay me a fixed fee per project rather than an hourly rate.

If the only report you look at on a regular basis is your Profit & Loss statement, I encourage you to check out the article and take a deeper dive into your numbers. The results can be an eye-opener!

Collaboration and Leadership

I had the chance to write a few articles for Parker + Lynch, the executive recruiting and consulting firm, this month. I’ve enjoyed the assignments. They give me a chance to research and write on interesting subjects.

This assignment was no exception. I was asked to write on why collaboration is the key to great leadership.

Have you worked at an organization that suffered from a “silo mentality”?

 

Mortgage APR vs. Interest Rate: What’s the Difference?

One of the things I like most about writing about personal finance topics is getting the chance to learn things I didn’t know previously. I’ve bought three homes over the years while I noted that my lenders provided both an interest rate and an APR, I never asked about the difference between those two numbers.

Recently, I had the chance to answer that question for Lending Tree. It made me wish I could go back in time and take a closer look when I bought my mortgage!
